    "WiFi Master Key is a free app that is available from the Google Play Store. It helps you find and connect to free Wifi Hotspots. It works quickly and simply. There is always a danger to connecting to public networks so you should be aware of that, but this app does what it says it does and it does it well. It fits the topic extremely well."

    "It says you do not need a password but when i launch it it asks me for a password. I do not know if its not set up properly or there is a glitch on some devices. I'm using it on a galaxy s8 and its giving me that error message. Its truly a great idea but hope it gets fixed asap. "

    "My old phone had been draining the battery after 3-4 hours of being off the charger. I could turn off some of the services to get a bit more battery life but would often forget to do so and the next time I'd try to use my phone, the battery would be dead. Swift Wifi helps in that it switches off the wifi hardware when not using data. It also works great for finding wifi hotspots. "

    "Its a good app to find wireless places with shared passwords. But for me this is just a great way for someone to hack you. What's your information worth? Sorry but I won't be using this app because i value my privacy."

    "I installed this and had a little trouble getting the verification code sent to me. Once that was out of the way I didn't have any issue with the app itself. It is very easy to use and does what it says it will do. I liked that layout design of the app as well. Nicely done."
