MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS – Barcelona, Spain –: WeFi Inc. (www.wefi.com), creator of the world’s largest community-based global Wi-Fi network, announced the launch of WeFi API, a software integration package that enables mobile application developers for Android phones to benefit from WeFi’s award-winning Wi-Fi technology. Android developers of data-intensive applications can benefit from WeFi’s high-performance global Wi-Fi network, which ensures automatic and fast access to the best Wi-Fi connection available, as well as from WeFi’s extensive detailed intelligence relating to over 50 million hotspots worldwide.

WeFi will be demonstrating at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Please visit us at the Israel Mobile Association Pavilion – Hall 4, Level 1, Stand #11.

For over 3 years WeFi has been building the world’s largest Wi-Fi network, which recently passed 50 million recorded hotspots around the world. Millions of WeFi users contributed to building this network, and continue to do so every day.

WeFi API provides the following benefits to Android application developers:

· Automatic Wi-Fi connection and full control over Wi-Fi connection process.
· Up-To-Date, highly detailed business data on Wi-Fi hotspots such as the type of location (café, library, etc), whether or not the access point is requires a password, costs money or if free, requires a web homepage sign-in or not, and more.
· Locating all available hotspots respective to a user’s location, beyond the phone’s Wi-Fi range

WeFi’s API Partner Program is already in full swing, with a number of Android application developers already adopting WeFi API into their platform. These include:

LookATOR, developed by LoFT (www.loftdev.com), is an Augmented Reality-based application for finding better Wi-Fi access. The WeFi API allows LookATOR users to get a wide variety of useful information about Wi-Fi networks they see, and helps them get better and more fluid Wi-Fi access through LookATOR.

DroidSecurity (www.droidsecurity.com) is a pioneer of mobile security solutions providing the tools and services needed to safeguard smartphones. Their solutions protect mobile devices and data against security, privacy and identity threats. DroidSecurity develops an application called “Safe Network” which uses the WeFi API to control the Wi-Fi connectivity process and verify the security level of hotspots the user connects to.
