Boingo WiFinder update enables inapp iTunes WiFi subscriptions for iOS

Notice some fresh spring in Boingo’s step? It’s probably the new iTunes integration, bringing streamlined subscription billing to the company’s Wi-Finder app. Free WiFi is always our first pick, followed by LTE, then 3G, EDGE, GPRS, a short-term WiFi pass, and then, far down at the bottom of the list, a monthly subscription from Boingo. But hey, someone must be keeping the lights on — there are now a whopping 600,000 compatible hotspots worldwide. And if you’re one of those aforementioned subscribers, there’s a convenient new option for handing over your cash. Beginning today, iOS users can have the $7.99 monthly tariff billed directly to their iTunes accounts, joining up with a single tap. The new offering will presumably cover multiple mobile devices, but it’s unlikely to get your laptop online — you’ll need to splurge for a much costlier plan for that. iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users can download the updated app today.
