Download of the Day: WiFind

My boyfriend and I spent over an hour one day trying to find a Wi-Fi network in range on the roof of our apartment building. Little did I know there's a useful download from Apple called WiFind that shows you what wireless networks are locked or unlocked and their signal strength...all in your airport menu.

Featured on CrunchGear, this useful application will tell you a list of Wi-Fi signals in range. Surf the net from home, from work or from a corner coffee shop!








Do you have a favorite download you think geeksugar readers would like? Share your favorites in the Download of the Day group,


I know that this long list looks scary, but trust me, once you get the hang of it, it'll be a snap the second time around.

  1. First of all, join the Download of the Day group
  2. Click "Create and Share!" on the left hand side
  3. Choose "Blog"
  4. Give your photo a Title
  5. Leave the category as "general"
  6. Change the channel to "technology and gadgets"
  7. Add keyword(s) (for example mine for this photo was "Download of the Day")
  8. Click on the "Add Image" link below the "body" box
  9. A popup window will happen - click on "Browse" to find your image on your computer
  10. Once you have the image chosen, click "Submit"
  11. The popup will show you your image, choose size: "normal" - if you want, you can give it a title (which will show up as a caption)
  12. Click "Insert" and the popup will go away
  13. Your "body" box will now have some text in it. Leave it as is. If you want to add some text before the picture telling me why you love the download, do it before the code that has appeared.
