As WiFi locations continue to sprout up, people become more and more mobile with their computers with the added internet connection availability. Whisher makes WiFi even more available and adds a community feel to it.
Once you have downloaded Whisher, you are able to share your WiFi with others in your area, or use the WiFi of a fellow Whisher for free. You can easily see the available WiFi connections on the Whisher module and see some information about the person sharing that spot. Now you can actually communicate with the people in your WiFi area. Those Whishers appear in your list of contacts that you can chat with, as well as the usernames of your friends from AIM, MSN, GTalk, Twitter, Yahoo, ICQ, and Jabber. You can also share files with anyone on your list and do group chats, no matter which network your contacts are a part of.
Another cool feature is the availability of information based on your location. You can find out about restaurants, events, shops, and people that are around where you are hooking into the internet. You can also check out where your friends are to see if they’re close by to go enjoy one of those spots you’ve just learned about from your location information. This is making WiFi more social, global, and free than ever before.
