The Instabridge application offers a complete map of Wi-Fi networks open or with known passwords around and allows you to download information for offline browsing. The feature is useful when the user data packet comes to an end or is traveling overseas, as it requires the internet to find the nearest free access point.
Available for iPhone (iOS) and Android, the app lets you search for locations in the region with available connection. Then just walk to the signal range, activate the Wi-Fi antenna of the smartphone and connect with a touch. See how to download maps and access information from Instabridge even without 3G or 4G.

Walk to the location that offers the connection and tap the "Connect" button when it is available on the screen. The application will connect automatically, without typing the password manually.
