We have TWC internet at home.
We want to be able to use the TWC WIFI hotspots in and around town with our laptop while we are mobile and away from our home signal but it does not appear that the TWC WIFI Finder app is compatible with a laptop. Google Play doesn't indicate so ("incorrect device" when attempting to download, or whatever).
Is there a way to access/use the TWC WIFI with our TWC account information while we are mobile, using our laptop?
Thanks in advance.

If it's an app, it only works on specific handheld devices.
The find a TWC hotspot by zip code should run on a laptop unless Spectrum killed it.
TWC TV® requires Standard TV or higher, Roku 2 or 3, iPad or iPhone with iOS 7.0 or higher, Kindle Fire HD/HDX, Xbox One®, Xbox 360®, Samsung Smart TV (2012 or newer) and/or Android 2.3 smartphone or Android 4.0 tablet and WiFi connection. TWC-authorized modem required for in-home viewing and minimum 1.5 Mbps connection recommended for out-of-home viewing.

Yep it's not compatible with laptops, only mobile devices. One possible solution is to use your phone to connect to the TWC hotspot, then tether your phone and laptop if your phone/carrier supports tethering.

You don't need the WIfiFinder app to connect to TWC's wireless passpoints with your laptop.
That may be confusion for some

You can check out the map on a browser, no need to have the app.
