After several months gathering feedback and reactions from our users, we decided to give Whisher a face lift, include the best ideas, and offer an improved, simplified WiFi experience.
So, what’s different?
Whisher is now a plugin instead of a standalone application. Why try to reinvent the wheel? Users already know how to use WiFi. Whisher is now completely integrated into the operating system, adding the WiFi Sharing and WiFi Out features.
WiFi Out? What is that?
In a few words, 1-Click access to commercial hotspots. Whisher now allows you to get online at more than 60.000 commercial hotspots around the world. It includes WiFi providers like BT Openzone, Orange, AT&T and many more. You can access them all with a unique credit: WiFi Out. Once you have purchased WiFi Out credit, you can simply go to the Starbucks around the corner and connect for a few minutes to check your mail. You don’t need to have a subscription or pay a minimum fee. With WiFi Out, if you don’t connect, you don’t pay!
We are looking for some motivated users in Europe and North America who would like to help us improve the brand new Whisher, for example, by testing WiFi Out, or helping us with bugs that may crop up. In exchange you will get free WiFi at all our commercial locations. If you are interested, send us an email with your details.
What about WiFi sharing?
WiFi sharing is still at the core of the new Whisher. You can contribute to the largest free WiFi network in the world, by registering your home WiFi with Whisher. As always, you can stop sharing at anytime with a single mouse click, and your connection remains encrypted and secure!
Any Mac love?
The Mac version is almost ready, and it will be launched very soon! Most of us at the office are Mac users, so we watch our Windows-toting peers with envy. The developer in charge is on a strict diet of cornflakes, and locked in a filing cabinet until he finishes it.
So is that it?
Not at all! In a few weeks, we will launch mobile Whisher plugin - watch this space. The developers in charge of this version are on an even stricter diet.
