Mac OS X Laptops Can Now Automatically Connect to Wi-Fi Hotspots and Municipal Networks

Devicescape Software today announced that it has added support for Mac OS X. With Devicescape, Mac laptop users can now automatically connect to any Wi-Fi hotspots and municipal networks without having to click through log in screens or re-enter user names and passwords.

“We’re continuing to deliver on our promise to provide effortless Wi-Fi connections from any device,” said Dave Fraser, CEO of Devicescape. “Our Devicescape service is the perfect complement to Apple’s philosophy of simplicity, ease of use and always putting the needs of the consumer first. Now with Devicescape on your Mac laptop, getting connected at hotspots and on municipal networks is simply automatic. It can’t get any easier than that.”

The Devicescape software for Mac OS X is available as a download from the Devicescape website at: www.devicescape.com. The software and the service are currently free. Once the software is installed, the user simply sets up an account and enters their user names and passwords for any network subscriptions they own. Users can also opt to accept access to free networks. In addition, if a users’ favorite network isn’t among the hundreds of thousands of hotspots that Devicescape already works with, users can request new networks with a simple web-based form. Once set up — connecting to hotspots and Wi-Fi networks is automatic and requires no user interaction.

Currently, Devicescape supports more than 60 public networks including the world’s largest commercial carriers such as T-Mobile and British Telecomm Openzone, as well as free and municipal networks such as Google Mountain View, and university networks such as the AirBears Network at UC Berkeley. In addition to Mac OS X, Devicescape’s service supports PCs with Microsoft Vista and Windows XP, Windows Mobile 5 Smartphones, the Nokia 770 and N800 Web tablets and the Linksys WIP 300 VoIP phone — with many more planned.
