Terrible app we have tried all over the world vis-a-vie our Hilton Amex providing this “benefit”. It rarely works and many times with Hilton hotels actually inhibits wifi so we are deleting and not recommending anyone use this worthless app.
This app makes some WiFi networks unusable. You can’t tell it’s happening but the WiFi will work once you delete this app. This is a horrible bug and I would never have this app on my phone ever again.
can’t find connection worst of all never will update without error. Worthless
I was unable to connect to hotel or airline WiFi because the Boingo app prevents the iPhone from displaying the portal authentication page. I first tried to reset network settings without success. Finally uninstalling this app allowed me to connect properly.
I put this app on my brand new iPad Pro and haven’t really used it much, but I was a little taken by surprise when I noticed my brand new iPad battery seemed to drain more than I expected it. Even when my iPad would sit idle, locked/sleep mode, I would wake it up after a while and see a significant battery depletion. I finally used the built-in iOS battery monitor in settings and saw that this app was the largest battery hog. As mentioned, I rarely used the app or had it in the “recently used” app switcher but saw that it was running in the background for 145 hours over the last 10 days (145/240 hours) - that’s crazy! I have had the most up to date version of the app on my iPad, so it couldn’t be due to an outdated app. Either way, I had no choice but to delete it after seeing that. Here’s to hoping this fixes my brand new iPad battery drainage.
can't even cancel or deactivate my account from the mobile app , the mobile app is useless tbh ..
You won’t be able to connect to many networks when this app is on your iPhone X. Your phone will show you are connected to the public WiFi network when you go to settings. But the WiFi sign will not show on the top right hand corner. And you won’t have internet access. The solution: delete the Bingo app from your phone, and you’ll be able to connect right away. :) So yeah, this app deserves ZERO stars. It does the exact opposite of what it’s supposed to do.
Wasted time and money trying to connect at BWI airport without success - I will be asking for a refund - terrible product experience
Too many times now I’ve been blocked from hotel wi-fi because this app is interfering in the background. Latest update kept spooling until it nearly drained my battery. Use this app as a last resort and turn it off otherwise! App user beware.
I paid for this service to sit in an airport and download a movie from iTunes. The speed test promised me that I was getting 95mbps, but in reality most connections were throttled. I understand that networking is complex and there are many potential bottlenecks but I used several proxies with a variety of locations to perform my own speed tests and noticed that I was only ever getting 0.8-1.8mbps. Being that iTunes is a major content distributor I don’t see why you would want to throttle it, unless it’s to promote your own services like boingo tv. This seems pretty unreasonable to me. 🤷🏻♂️
