Trouble is, ISS a hotel Wi-Fi is recognized by boingo as an available hotspot, the boingo pop up prevents the hotel login screen from opening. Struggled with this over three trips before I figured it out. No obvious way to disable auto login attempts in the app settings. So the app is deleted until this is fixed.
Terrible. I installed this app and the only thing it proved able to do was to screw up every Wi-Fi connection in every hotel and every airport in Asia!!! what a nightmare !!! Hours of frustrating work configuring my phone over and over again trying to figure out why it wasn’t connecting to my free Wi-Fi signals ...finally somebody told me that Boingo App was the problem ...I deleted the app and Bingo ! my phone started working just fine again and picking up all WIFI signals everywhere. Lesson learned.
I couldn’t figure out why I was connected to the WiFi at my hotel on my iPhone, but the phone was refusing to actually use the WiFi connection. A quick search revealed that this app actually prevents you from connecting to certain WiFi access points! Deleted the app and now I can connect just fine. This app is worse than useless, it is actually detrimental to your phone even when you’re not using it!
I want my refund you guys took $9.99 from my bank account and I did not ask for it
The title says it all, this issue had been dogging me for over a year, I finally figured out that the app wasn’t letting the landing page load. Deleted the app, now it works like a charm. I love being able to connect to hotspots at airports transparently, but I spend more time at hotels, so it’s staying uninstalled until they fix this.
I tried deleting and reinstalling. It’s been doing this for quite some time. Bionic doesn’t work on my iPhone, iPad, Mac and Windows machine.
Worse than garbage. It straight up doesn’t connect to ANY wi-fi . Does not work as advertised. Ever. Even worse, it intercepts legitimate attempts to connect to wi-fi and makes it impossible to log into the welcome screens in public places. So it both doesn’t work and interferes with normal operations. Just smash a big rock into your forehead until you pass out and bleed all over yourself. It’ll be more productive and more fun.
Terrible update. The app used to work on my iPhone but now it no longer opens the WiFi settings when you click “check for boingo WiFi” in the app. Instead it open the settings for WiFinder (the app itself) and you can’t connect to any WiFi network associated with Boingo.
Update: had to delete the app as it was eating up 55% of my battery despite background activity being turned off... And yes I agree with the comment - non of that sounds right, but are the actual issues with the app... Similar issues as the other users: 1) app prevents you from logging into certain WiFis (I haven’t been able to find a solution) 2) it drains a LOT of your battery (35% on my iPhone over the past 10 days with “background activity”)
Just changed to an iPhoneXS and I’ve been having problems detecting wifi available around me through the app, and it often redirects me to settings.
