We'll always take free WiFi first, or good LTE coverage, but sometimes there's just no alternative but to use a Boingo subscription. Boingo has around 600,000 hotspots around the globe, and with todays update to their iOS application, accessing them became a lot smoother.

The big news is that Boingo subscriptions can now be bought as an in-app purchase, and billed straight to your iTunes account. It isn't likely to help you getting your laptop online, but the $7.99 purchase will cover your iOS devices.

There's also a bunch of bug fixes and performances improvements thrown into the mix, but it really is all about the new, simple subscription method. Grab a copy from the App Store now, and let us know how you get on. Does this take the pain out of getting your Boingo on?
