Android Wi-Fi Connections Now Faster and Easier with WeFi PRO

With new functionality in WeFi's Android Wi-Fi Connection Manager, finding, connecting and using the best broadband network has never been easier

HERNDON, Va., Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- WeFi Inc. (www.wefi.com) today announced the availability of its latest PRO version of its popular Wi-Fi connectivity app for Android, featuring automatic and seamless Wi-Fi connectivity, optimization of the phone's battery life, boosted navigation features, additional language support for Spanish and Catalan, and an interactive map of nearby Wi-Fi hotspots, to name a few. Android users can now download WeFi PRO free from Google Play

"With each new release of the WeFi app we strive to improve the functionality of the software and provide a feature-rich solution for seamlessly connecting to the best Wi-Fi networks all over the globe," said Eran Naveh, WeFi vice president of product strategy. "Users can still use the phone's default Wi-Fi networks list to manually connect to networks they know, but WeFi PRO up-levels users' connectivity quality, providing an efficient and seamless way to get connected to many more Wi-Fi networks that provide a better experience."

WeFi PRO leverages anonymous crowd-sourced data to make dynamic real-time decisions driven by patented state-of-the-art algorithms. Furthermore, WeFi has a database with more than 150 million Wi-Fi locations worldwide, giving WeFi PRO users the widest selection of fast and free Wi-Fi networks to choose from. WeFi PRO brings even more features to the standard app, which already enabled users to reduce data usage charges, maximize battery life and connect users to the safest and strongest Wi-Fi networks.

For users concerned with battery life when they use Wi-Fi, WeFi PRO automatically manages the Wi-Fi radio in their device, by automatically switching it ON when the chances are high for connection to a quality Wi-Fi network, and OFF as soon as such possibility is reduced. With WeFi PRO users enjoy very long battery life between charging, while still getting the best available mobile broadband experience.

Ultimately, WeFi PRO acts as the "best available network" decision maker for users, automatically and seamlessly connecting to the fastest available network. The best network is not always the hotspot with the strongest signal. If an Android device is being used for streaming media, a faster network with a weaker signal is typically better than a slow network with a strong signal. WeFi Pro makes the connection based on the user's application.

For users who want to get more involved, WeFi PRO is always showcasing the closest public Wi-Fi access point, listing nearby public hotspots complete with addresses, available both online and offline. Users can tag new hotspots as belonging to businesses or other organizations, improving the crowd sourced community information. Traveling or not, WeFi PRO users worldwide can access an interactive map of Wi-Fi hotspots showing public Wi-Fi networks around the user. Finding the best mobile broadband networks has never been easier than with WeFi Pro.
