is a Google Maps-based interface to finding wireless hotspots; just pop in a ZIP code and it’ll display your options, including whether they’re free or pay-per-use. Click on a particular location and you’ll find details about it, including what type of location it is, whether they have food, and reviews about the environment. You can also add locations that you know of, allowing Hotspotr to expand its database. My local listings were okay, but I added in one notable omission.
But the real reason you know you can trust Hotspotr is its Web 2.0 hallmarks: the lack, for example, of an ‘e’ in the name points to the heritage of sites like Flickr and Tumblr, while the site’s masthead proudly proclaims that it is “Beta-ish.” Honestly, how can you go wrong?
