A new app has launched in Ireland that will allow users to find their own mobile hotspots on their phones, including in the case of overseas visitors.
In a blog post, mobile hotspy’s creator, Eoin McCarty, says the app was created by his team and was “totally free”.
The app was originally launched in March, and currently only supports the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.
It is also compatible with the US, Canada, and Mexico.
However, Mr McCarty says the US version is currently not available.
“It’s not available in the US and the UK, so we haven’t launched it there yet,” he said.
“So, if you’re an Australian or a New Zealander, you’ll need to be there in order to see the list of your own mobile locations.”
And if you want to get in touch with someone from the UK or Canada, we’ll need your phone number and the number of the country you’re in.
“Mr McCarty also says the service is available to users of the iPhone, iPad and Android, and will work on the HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S3, LG G3, Google Nexus 7, and Huawei Nexus 6P.”
The US is in the process of getting an app out to the rest of the world and I’m looking forward to seeing what people think of it, but so far we’ve only been able to access it in the United States,” he added.”
Hopefully, soon we’ll be able to expand to other countries and get it on more phones.
“A similar app was launched in the UK earlier this year.
Mr McCartys blog post notes that it is not possible to use the app in Ireland at the moment, but that the app has been available on other devices in the past.”
We haven’t actually launched the app for Ireland, but we’ll probably be adding it soon,” he concluded.”
But the main reason we are going public is that the UK Government is keen to support the app, so I think it will eventually find its way to other people’s smartphones.
