Whisher for Symbian S60 is here!

April 17, 2008 posted by Mike Puchol

You can now use your Nokia N95, N82, E61 or any other WiFi enabled Nokia phone to connect to commercial hotspots or Whisher shared hotspots around the world. Following our philosphy of integrating instead of introducing a new user experience, we have turned Whisher into a plugin for the Nokia WiFi menu.

How does it work?

Simply start your web browser or any other application that connects to the Internet, and you will see “1Click Whisher” in the connection menu. Select it to see which signals are compatible! The Whisher logo shows Whisher shared hotspots, the $ logo shows commercial hotspots.

In addition to the connection, we added some other cool features:

  • Automatic connection: chose this option to let the Whisher plugin automatically chose the best available network. When you chose the “1Click Whisher” signal, it will scan for WiFi networks in the vicinity and connect automatically.
  • Virtual Signal: You can set up “1Click Whisher” as the default access point in all applications. With the automatic mode, it will allow you to connect in a seamless way, without having to care about hunting for WiFi.

To download the Whisher plugin, simply point your mobile phone to http://nokia.whisher.com - the installation will start automatically. If you want to download the installation file to your computer instead, you can visit our download page, where you will also find versions of the Whisher plugin for Windows and Mac. If you are a first time user, you can create a new account by registering here, or if you already have an account for one of our desktop plugins, you can use it on your Nokia too.

Free WiFi for beta testers!

The product is still in beta and we are looking for feedbacks and bug reports. If you want to be a beta tester, we will give you free WiFi at all our partner hotspots in exchange. If you are interested, please send us an email to info@whisher.com with “Nokia Beta Testing” in the subject line.
