If your iPad is Wi-Fi-only, finding nearby wireless hotspots can be a challenge. That's where Free Wi-Fi Finder comes in handy. JiWire's app locates more than 145,000 free Wi-Fi hotspots worldwide. You can find locations nearby, search specific geographical regions, or filter by location type (e.g., cafe).

OK, but how can you search for free Wi-Fi if you're not already connected to the Internet? Well, download the app's offline Wi-Fi database before hitting the road. Both the Free Wi-Fi Finder app and offline database are free.

re: 10 Great Summer iPad Apps
Another thing to remember when you are using your iPad for summer activities is that when the heat is out and you are being more active, that protecting your device is really quite important as well. I cannot even tell you how many times I have felt like my device was in danger either because the kids were going wild, the weather changed, or some other unforeseen circumstance arose. All of these apps are great, but I would also enjoy having a device that works. There a few options that I like including a company called Maroo that is all about protecting the device from bumps and bruises. Feel free to check out what I am talking about....
