APP WATCH: BT app for iPad

Do you happen to be a BT broadband user? Do you also happen to own an Apple iPad? Well, we have some good news for you - easy to access, free Wi-Fi access when you are out and about. Yes, just like the existing iPhone and Android apps.

You'll need the new BT app for the iPad, but that's free to download. Once you've got it, the app connects BT home broadband customers with an iPad to its network of over 2 million Wi-Fi hotspots when out and about. Which just might save you on a 3G contract - as long as you know where the hotspots are and they happen to fit in with your life. Actually, that's easier than you might think, as BT is throwing in a mapping service that's updated weekly, showing the location of your nearest hotspots.

So just download the app, input your email username and password and you're away. Access is apparently unlimited too, so you can hammer it all you like. Well, that's the theory anyway.

John Petter, managing director, for BT Retail Consumer, said: 'Millions of BT broadband customers already get free access to the UK’s biggest wi-fi network. Our free app for the iPhone and Android devices has proved a huge hit with over 400,000 downloads to date, so launching an app for the iPad was naturally the next step. The app makes accessing Wi-Fi so simple you don’t even have to think about it and represents real value to our customers at a time when more andmore people are accessing the internet when they are on the move.'
