FON has a great web application called FON Maps that lets you search for bars, restaurants and other FON Spots in your neighborhood or in the city you are visiting. FON Maps on the web are great when you can plan your trips, but many Foneros asked us about ways to access FON Maps from their mobile phones, to find the nearest FON Spot when they really need it.

Today I’m happy to announce FON Maps is now an iPhone application that lets you see on a map all the Fon Spots near you, so anytime you can quickly know where to go to enjoy free WiFi. You can get it on the AppStore.

A translation to English/Spanish of the App’s description in the AppStore could be nice!!!

Top left, this is me 🙂

I am reserved on how much the app will be useful (to me). I must admit that I’ve only been connected to one other fonspot, because I don’t find any where I’d like to – in all the places I’ve stayed.

great idea!

some feedback:

* currently, no “on device” database of hotspots in the city, once the user is on the go without a connection (or with a ipod touch)

* no zoom in with fingers (forgot what it is called officially)

Para qué una aplicación como ésta si con mi iPod Touch o iPhone no puedo conectarme a una red FON?
Y no me hablen del Jailbreak, please!
