Launched gWiFi Ver 0.1

Filed under: gWiFi,Software Releases,Website Updates — Suramya @ 3:35 AM

I have created a webbased application called gWiFi that uses the newly released Google Map API and merges it with data from (which lists locations in US that offer free wireless internet access to the general public) and displays ithe result using the google map for ease of use/access.

The URL is: .

Currently the site only shows WiFi locations in New York but I will be adding other locations over the next few weeks. Check it out and let me know what you think.

  1. Great idea! Any thoughts on a submission or wiki-type system for people to add locations?

  2. Thanks for the feedback and suggestion. I *am* thinking about adding a submission system but that is going to have to wait as the top priority right now is to get the Map working correctly. Once I solve that problem (Loading more than 35 wifi spots without crashing) then I will start expanding the DB and adding other features.
