Boingo Wi-Fi Credits for the iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad offers connectivity on the go

Boingo just released a new app for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad – their second application for the platform. In this newly released app, you can purchase Wi-Fi connectivity credits on the go – using your App store credits or stored payment method. Credits are good for a single hour of access.

Credits can be purchased in blocks of one, or ten (with a buy ten get one free promo). Best of all, the app comes with one free credit.

By linking the Wi-Fi credit purchase with your existing app store payment method, you won’t need to reach for a credit card or worry about having to enter a new payment method on the road. Credits are just treated as an in-app purchase, like many other add-ons for App store purchases.The application manages the purchases, and also acts as a hotspot finder.

The new Boingo Wi-Fi credits app can be found in the App store. If you plan to use Boingo more than a couple of hours a month, you’ll be better off with their smartphone plan – which offers unlimited worldwide access for just $7.95/month.

Daily deal – Apple 8GB iPod Touch for $199 (refurbished)

My daily deal for today is for a great way to save almost $100 on the popular Apple iPod Touch. This version has 8GB of storage, which is enough for up to 1750 songs, but you can also load photos and movies on the device.

In addition to being a “normal” iPod, the iPod touch also has a web browser and email program, which makes it perfect for using on your next flight, if it happens to come with wireless Internet access!

With the new Apple “App store”, you will even be able to download applications to the device, including several very handy travel programs. To get these new features, you will have to spend an additional $9.95 for the iPod touch software upgrade.

The iPod has been refurbished by Apple, which means it was once returned to them, and was brought back to its “as new” condition, and my experience with Apple is that a refurbished iPod is indeed impossible to tell from a new version.

The refurbished Apple 8GB iPod touch comes with the same one year warranty as their new players, and in the box you will find the player, a pair of headphones, a USB cable, a users guide and a stand (which is just a small piece of plastic).

If 8GB is not enough for you, you’ll also be able to find the 16GB and 32GB versions in the store for a substantial discount.

You can find the refurbished Apple iPod Touch here, shipping is free, and you can pay using all major credit cards. Apple has to charge sales tax in most states where they have a retail store, so your total price will be around $210.
