Youtta lets users share their WiFi


How many times have you turned on your tablet’s WiFi locator and seen a long list of nearby sources, all locked behind password screens? I bet you wondered why they couldn’t share just a little of their bandwidth with you?

Sharing is the idea behind Youtta, a new app that lets users safely share a few megabytes in exchange for the access to WiFi made available by other Youtta users.

Youtta runs on a point system. Users pay points for access and providers collect points for sharing. Once you've registered a new account, you add your location to the Youtta map along with the number of megabytes available and the points charged for access. Your network login and password is stored in Youtta’s encrypted database so it’s not disclosed to other Youtta members.

You can get more information on how the system works at the Youtta website and download the free Android app in the Google Play Store. Youtta is also on Twitter @Youtta_net.
