eduroam companion app for iOS

Our colleagues in Information Services have been made aware of an eduroam companion app for iOS, developed by JANET, which can be used by iPhone and iPad users to locate their nearest eduroam point. Using this application while travelling should help you locate any local eduroam instances which can then be used to connect to the internet using your QMU username and password. For details and an iTunes link to download the app visit:

As always eduroam should be configured and tested here at QMU before travelling. For instructions and more information click here.
