Will Shaw be offering a Windows 8 app for Shaw Go WiFi? If yes, what is the schedule for delivery?
We do not currently have an app that is compatible with Windows 8 for Desktops but we do have that available for Windows 7.5 and Windows 8 Phones here Shaw Go WiFi | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (Canada)
I am not aware of any plans to deliver an app that will be compatible with a Desktop computer but the Shaw Go Wifi locator can be accessed here Shaw - Internet:Shaw Go WiFi
I hope this answers your question but please let us know if you require further information.
I do have an Android phone but prefer using my Windows 8 tablet if I want to do any serious web access if I am away from home.
I know the app migration from Windows 8 phone to Windows 8 is not too onerous, most of the work is in the UI so it would be a good addition to the Shaw toolset.
Is there an alternative app that I could use on my Windows 8 tablet that would accomplish the same requirement?
Hello again Byron
The only alternative would be to access it from the website which should work with your Windows 8 tablet. I agree that having an app for Windows 8 would be a great addition to our toolset. I have checked with the team and there aren't any plans to add that yet but thank you for the feedback.
that's disappointing. I never even considered that this wouldn't be in the works.
