VM Wi-Fi Buddy App Incompatible with Sony Xperia 2105

HI I did try and download VM Wi-fi buddy, but it's incompatible with my phone. I do have another Android wi-fi buddy installed on my phone (not VM), however I do still have an issue when I try to use open wi-fi or it accepts my password to log on to my guest wi-fi at work, but when I try to access the web, I get a message to say I'm offline.  Accessing the internet using wi-fi it would appear I can only do in range of my home VM hub!!

The WiFi Buddy app for Android is due a replacement anytime soon, the new app will be called Virgin WiFi, the iOS version is already out.

So is the VM wifi buddy iOS only atm? That would explain why it's incompatible with my Android phone. Do have an Android wifi buddy on there atm, tho the problem is I can't get onto wifi apart from at home or in range of my VM hub.

iOS did have WiFi Buddy, it has now just changed to a new app called Virgin WiFi.

For Android we're going to have to wait a bit longer for the new app.

WiFi Buddy did work and log me into WiFi ok on my Moto G, but I had to uninstall it because it caused massive battery drain and also started eating up my mobile data allowance :-(
