Independent hotspot directory Total Hotspots and location based social startup Rummble have collaborated on a iPhone app that makes finding your nearest hotspot a breeze.

Built off the Rummble api, the application, appropriately titled ‘Total  Hotspots’, allows users to easily add, rate, review tag and photograph hotspots to share with others. Referencing the locations of over 170,000 hotspots worldwide, the app makes finding wifi nearby fast, slick and simple.

The app is the first official application built off the Rummble API, which will officially be available to all very soon. Impressively, the collaboration saw Total Hotspots shoot up the iPhone ‘utility’ charts to fourth within 48 hours of being released.

Being based in London, I’m unable to confirm the accuracy and/or comprehensiveness of the app outside of the UK. However, if London is anything to go by – you’re in good hands.

The app is available in the app store, for £2.99.
