    Hi,
    what I urgently need is an app that finds free hotspots. The problem is that all the apps I've found in the appstore need an internet connection to find an internet connection ... LOL

    Hi Ben,
    have you tried the "Spots" application? It will show you all hotspots available at your current location. Comes with a huge database I guess

    you can also use WifiTrak to look for wireless networks, walking down the street I found 7 unencrypted networks.
