Hot spot finder

I was walking in the street using the programm called Hotspot Finder in order to schearch all the hotspot around my home and where i m used to be .. and i have think to something DO you think it s possible to create a programm that find hotspot( like hotspot finder) but then the programme try to connect to the hotspot to see if it s a free one or not and then if it s a free one and/or a crypted one , it use a programme like google map to save the location of the hotspot on a map ... Like thaht you go in the street with the programm on and when you come back home you can watch a map of where you have been with all the free and/or crypted hotspot
Do you think it s possible to creat a program like that ?
If yes do you know any body able to make it ?

Thanks a lot and sorry for my really bad english i m french...

What you do is called 'warwalking' ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warwalking ). I do it often.

BTW, Hotspot Finder already tells if it a free hotspot and/or a crypted one. But of course it doesn't know if it's a obligatory webpage with a uid and pwd that awaits when you connect.

Hotspot Finder is quite useless for warwalking since it, like the built-in checker, only checks once in a minute! So it doesn't add anything to what wasn't there in the OS from the beginning. You can however do one thing. You can quit the program (or the built-in program) altogether and check again. Then you get a new WLAN strength percentage. Annoying task, but it works. (That should be easy to reproduce only by some sort of simple script.)

Well, as I said, it's "quite useless" and "doesn't add anything" so I don't know why you would want it. But sure, check: http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/softw...rd_Edition.php
