Create. Share. Post. Discover!
WiFiName allows you to pin images, comments, videos, even tweets and Facebook updates to locations around you using your mobile device. Post content to any WiFi signal your phone can detect, and let others discover your photos, videos, or comments as they walk by. Turn your city into a living blog, connect with people in your apartment building, or explore what people are sharing at your favorite coffee shop, library, or bar.
Free to use, WiFiName is a social network that connects you to people directly around you, throughout your city, and all over the world like never before. Explore pictures, videos, audio tracks, and more around you as you walk down the street, or view the most recent content pinned anywhere in the world! Read unsolicited reviews of the restaurant you`re about to step into, Re-pin what`s trending in Barcelona to your local hangout, or check out the cool photography coming from Apartment 5B. WiFNames are the trigger so it works indoors, underground, moving in train/planes, even underwater - even we haven`t figured out all the ways you can use it yet!
The WiFiName app also lets you build a location-based blog that follows you everywhere you go. When you sign up with a username, your pins are collected and displayed in real time at www.wifiname.com/ +[USERNAME] , as well as broadcasted to those around as +[USERNAME] you whenever you are using WiFiName app!
Explore: View a list of the WiFiNames and active app users closest to your location. Click a particular WiFiName and view the content other people have pinned there. Or Browse by Content - Wonder what people are pinning in Albania? Hur är det med Sverige? (how about Sweden?) This tab allows you to scroll through the most recent content pinned anywhere in the world at any time.
Favorites: Like a pin and want to see it later? Click the star icon at the top of any pin to save it as a favorite, and view it at any time.
Following: Lets face it, some people and locations are just more interesting than others (sorry, +WilfordBrimley). Just like in other social networks, you can follow your favorite WiFiNames or users and keep up with what they post and favorite in real time.
MsgOwner: Ever wanted to tell the owner of the sushi restaurant next door to kindly stop filling your apartment with Eau de RawTuna? Well, simply pull out your phone, select the restaurant`s WiFiName, and let them know a thing or two about proper biohazard disposal.
If you`ve found a particular WiFiName that you want as your own, claim it and gain total control over its displayed content by registering it www.wifiname.com. Like a domain name for mobile devices, you can now broadcast only the content you choose from your router, smartphone, or WiFi hotspot, and gain followers from all over the world.

By SB246754 These guys get five stars for actually going after something new and creative in a sea of other apps all doing the same things. This could be huge as we all wake up to the possibilities. I hope more cities come online soon! Great stuff.
