Plenty of coffee shops, airports and other locations grant you free access to WiFi — as long as you open a web browser and check a box saying you agree to to the terms and conditions. That’s easy enough if the first thing you do after connecting to the internet is open a web browser. But what if you’re on your phone and you want WiFi access to use an internet-connected chat, video, news, or VoIP app? You might not even realize you need to open the web browser until you notice that your phone says its online but you can’t actually seem to do anything with it.
Enter WiFi Browser Login. This app automatically detects when you connect to a WiFi hotspot that requires further action before you can get online. You can set the app to send you notification, or to open the web page you need to click before you continue.
This is a feature that’s already built into iOS, so iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users are probably familiar with it. But if you use your Android device to connect to public WiFi hotspots regularly, WiFi Browser Login may be able to save you a little time and/or headache.
The app is available as a free download from the Android Market.
