Sky Cloud WiFi app released
Thursday 12 April 2012 17:09:20 by Andrew Ferguson

Sky has released its Sky Cloud WiFi application, that will make it easier for Sky Broadband customers to log on and use The Cloud hot-spots for free.

The app itself is free in the Apple App Store and Google Play store, and allows you to register the device it is running, with a limit of six devices linked to your Sky Broadband web login.

The maps scale for larger screens, but using an Asus Transformer Prime (Ice Cream Sandwich) reveals a bug, where the application is firmly stuck in phone screen orientation mode, ignoring screen rotation requests.

@browney Users on Everyday Lite (the free 2GB product) dont get the WiFi option

If you are on connect or the unlimited services, then try phoning them

Add me to the people who are on Sky Unlimited but are told they are not eligible. I'll phone them tomorrow and see what the problem is.

If there is an easy solution let us know, and I'll add a few words to the article

Sky now have a forum entry http://bit.ly/Irvu7I for customers with this problem. They are PM'ing customers and requesting account details. I have given them mine and await a response. They have told some customers that it can take 7 days before their account works.

Connection was no problem for me. All 4 devices I have used both iOS and Android work perfectly.

Now if we can just persuade Sky to increase the number of Sky Go logins from the currently restrictive 2.
