.edu Browser is the only app on the AppStore to solve the following problem:

You have responsible parents, or you are responsible parents that have set the restrictions on your student’s iOS device. Safari is disabled and there are no web-browsers available to you.

The problem is that without any browser, you can’t even visit your school’s own web-site or intranet. Many schools these days are providing calendars, forms, files and more via their intranet or web-site.

.edu Browser gives access to .edu and .gov web-site URLs and blocks access to ALL other internet sites. It also gives access to intranet pages that are connected to the same local network as the iOS device. This includes school and work local networks but excludes the internet. This level of restriction allows the app to have a low, 9+ rating.

Create a list of bookmarked URLs for fast viewing. Web pages are displayed in full-screen view, with three buttons sitting in the bottom right hand corner: Refresh, Back and Bookmarks.

Further details:
- .edu domains include URLs with country codes, for example, .edu.au
- .gov domains include URLs with country codes, for example, .gov.au
- Intranet URLs are of the format: {server} or {server}:{port}, for example, apollos:8080. The {server} name cannot contain '.' characters.
- Supports both http:// and https:// connections.
- Handles username / password authentication.

Please verify that the URL’s you want to access meet these criteria before purchasing this app.
