AnchorFree has announced the release of
wiPod, an iPod application that helps you find free Wi-Fi hotspots.
Using the Notes feature available on late-model iPods with screens, wiPod saves you from having to visit AnchorFree to find free Wi-Fi spots in whatever area you’re visiting. You can select an area you’ll be visiting and download a list of names and addresses of all the free hotpsots in that area.
A free download, wiPod is available exclusively for AnchorFree members. Enrolling in AnchorFree is free of charge, however.
In related news, AnchorFree plans to release later this week a Mac version of
Hotspot Shield, software that encrypts and protects Internet traffic on your computer while you’re using free Wi-Fi.
