Using eduroam

eduroam users can now more easily locate eduroam-enabled sites thanks to a new app for the iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

The 'eduroam companion’ app helps users to locate their nearest eduroam point by visualising the central database of eduroam-enabled facilities on a map and provides information that the user will need in order to connect to the service.

Since the app taps into the central database, details of services throughout a number of participating countries are available.

There are some countries that do not provide data to the database, so coverage is not total. Equally, not all organisations provide similarly comprehensive data sets of where they provide service. 

In order to address this issue, a feature has been built in which enbles users to contribute to the accuracy of service coverage information - the app allows users to tag locations where they find eduroam.

Once the minumum threshold of tags have been received for a hotspot, a new location marker is created.

The iOS version can be downloaded free from iTunes. The Android version is now available from a number of sources, including Google.

The Android version features an increase in the quality and types of information captured when a user tags a location where they find eduroam. This has allowed the development of a new 'heatmap' coverage view. The Android version also features integration with popular social networks to allow users to share their eduroam experiences.
