outSSIDer WiFi Scanner
It's cold and rainy and you are walking outside in the need for WiFi. You find nothing but payment hotspots and unencrypted networks that just time out while Windows tries to connect to them. Your fingers are freezing and your laptop is short on battery. But help is near with this tool!
Just start it and begin walking. You can optionally close your laptop lid or turn off the screen to save battery life - this tool guides you by sound too!
outSSIDer WiFi Scanner scans for unencrypted networks while you are walking with your laptop and automatically tries to connect to them. It verifies the connection by attempting to download the Google favicon icon, thereby excluding pay services that redirect you to a login page. If the program finds an available network, it alerts you via distinctive sound signal, allowing you to keep your laptop screen closed to save battery power. Note: Due to the lack of open networks in our immediate area, we could not fully review the application and did no assign a rating at this time. No installation required.
When you hear a ding, stand still and wait. Next you'll hear either a hihat or a "ding ding ding ding". The hihat means that it failed connecting and that you must carry on walking.
