An Awesome Map With Wi-Fi Passwords For Airports Around The World

An Awesome Map With Wi-Fi Passwords For Airports Around The World

You’re about to begin a new travel adventure, having to wait around at the airport can really extinguish that blaze of energy left over from planning and embarking on your journey. So you look for internet access, but in so many airports, Wi-Fi networks are password protected!

Anil Polat, a blogger, computer engineer, and a world traveler works from anywhere, even places with the worst wireless connections. He rose to the occasion and set off to solve the Wi-fi password issue. And then devised a genius sword of innovation, the Wifox App.

The app is regularly updated including the locations and Wi-Fi passwords for a stream of airports all over the world. If there are any new or revised passwords they can be submitted through email or the comment section of his site. The app is available on android and IOS through Amazon, the App Store, and Google Play.

     The Main Features of the Wifox App

    • A popular map of wireless passwords, that allows users all over the world to add password information during their travels and airport transits.
    • Passwords are verified, added to the map and updated in real time.
    • Hotspots are visible on the map and available for offline use.
    • In map view, you can tap any Wi-Fi icon where wireless information is available, and use the button to copy the password to the clipboard.
    • The map is available offline (when you download Google Maps) so you don’t need an Internet connection to use WiFox when you’re traveling just copy and paste the password.
    • The Hotspot information is based on your location, so you instantly have access to the name of the network and the password that can get you online.
    • WiFox has a feedback system. Passwords are provided by travelers in the comments section or emailed to the  WiFox developer Anil Poland.
    • Passwords can be copied directly by clicking on the Wi-Fi icons of the world map. Once the wireless location is found, copy the password from Wifox straight onto the setting of the phone.
    • Unlock the time restrictions, there are access points with time limitations, Wifox navigates you around these restrictions.
    • Real-time Updates. Travelers rate the provided passwords and information and send through updates or revisions in real-time, directly on the app.
    • There are color-coded icons which indicate how reliable and new the information is at a given an access point.
    • Users are protected while accessing free Wi-Fi networks so unintentional connections to malicious access points are evaded.

    8 Replacements for Google Notebook

    8 Replacements for Google Notebook

    Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

    1. Zoho Notebook
      If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
    2. Evernote
      The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
    3. Net Notes
      If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
    4. i-Lighter
      You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
    5. Clipmarks
      For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
    6. UberNote
      If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
    7. iLeonardo
      iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
    8. Zotero
      Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

    I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

    In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
