I designed this to be as simple as possible. No exhausting menus or settings to configure. One click to turn on and one click to turn off.
Install, and add the shortcut to your home screen.
No more digging through settings and menus to turn the hotspot on or off.
Tap the Hotspot icon to enable\disable your phone as a WI-Fi hotsot.
(HotSpot and Twenty9 are not responsible for any data usage or data overage fees you incur while using HotSpot)
With this app you can quickly enable and disable the Wifi-Hotspot feature simple by clicking on the app's icon (it can be from the home screen or from the apps menu).
Note: This is just for activating/deactivating the hotspot, it's not a shortcut to the hotspot settings.
#### Prerequisites ####

- Before running the application is necessary that you already have your hotspot configured.
If you haven't done so you can go to:
Settings--> More --> Tethering & Portable Hotspot --> Set Up Wi-Fi hotspot
... In most phones this is the way to configure it, but if you are experiencing any problems let me know
If you have any issues or great ideas then i'll be glad to know about them so I can modify the app accordingly.

and Terms and Conditions http://de.surfeasy.com/Terms.html
Hotspot Control does away with those requirements, assuming that the hotspot functionality itself is actually still present and operational on the device. Rooting is *usually* not required.
THIS IS NOT DESIGNED TO BEAT YOUR CARRIER'S TETHERING PROTECTION - For some people it does (it depends on how that protection is implemented) but this is not what the app was made for. It's no use complaining that it doesn't do this for you. This app is designed to circumvent some issues when setting up a *local* hotspot so your devices can communicate with eachother, *not* with the internet (though that also works on several devices).
You can configure the access point (hotspot) name and password, encryption used is alway WPA2 AES + TKIP, to keep it simple.
On some devices that do not have a cellular data connection capability (like the Nexus 10) the hotspot will not give out IP addresses - the app will auto-detect this situation and fix it, but root is required for that option. Note that without root on these devices, the connected devices can still communicate if you configure their IP addresses manually, but that is something for the advanced user.
I personally need this to create a private network (even without a SIM, and thus without an actual *internet* connection) in the field between a number of my devices. Some genius at Samsung decided that my Note II shouldn't create an access point if no SIM is present - I beg to differ! Maybe someone else has use for this as well.

Lieber Telekom Kunde,
HotSpot Login zeigt an, wenn ein Telekom HotSpot verfügbar ist, und hilft Ihnen, sich einfach zu verbinden - ohne jedes Mal Benutzername und Passwort einzugeben. So unterstützt sie auch eine nahtlose Übergabe von 3G zu WLAN, sobald Sie einen Telekom HotSpot betreten.
Sollten Sie sich gerade nicht in der Nähe eines HotSpots befinden, erlaubt Ihnen der integrierte HotSpot Finder die komfortable Suche nach über 11.000 HotSpot Standorten in Deutschland und mehr als 50.000 Standorten weltweit über eine Datenbank im Internet. Der Finder zeigt die HotSpots an Ihrem aktuellen Standort oder bei einer beliebigen Adresse in einer Karte an. Zu jedem HotSpot erhalten Sie mit Tipp auf das HotSpot Icon Zusatzinformationen und können die Route dorthin bestimmen.
Hinweis: An Partner HotSpots im In- und Ausland ist das automatische Login sicherheitshalber deaktiviert. Das Login an diesen Standorten ist mit der App nur manuell möglich und verursacht zusätzliche Kosten. Sollte der Anbieter eine kostenlose Nutzung zur Verfügung stellen (z.B. BTOpenzone HotSpots bei Starbucks), muss die Anmeldung über den Webbrowser erfolgen, um zusätzliche Kosten zu vermeiden. Die App zeigt dann lediglich den aktuellen online Status!
Hinweis: In vielen Telekom Tarifen ist eine HotSpot Flatrate bereits inklusive. Telekom Kunden ohne HotSpot Flatrate können HotSpot Basic nutzen. Mit der Nutzung von HotSpot Basic erfolgt die Abrechnung minutengenau. Für HotSpot Basic fällt kein monatlicher Grundpreis an. Für Kunden ohne Telekom Tarif ermöglicht die App den bequemen Kauf eines HotSpot Pass vor Ort. Weitere Informationen zur Nutzung der HotSpots und den aktuellen HotSpot Tarifen der Deutschen Telekom finden Sie unter www.hotspot.de.
Viel Spaß mit der App,

Please do not rate this app with 1 star if you failed to read or understand the previous paragraphs, because that is not the problem of this software. Thanks.
For Android 2.2 and above. It uses an unsupported (but publicly available) API, so it might not work on your phone.
If you use the plugin, please rate it.
Note: This plug-in does NOT make your phone hotspot-capable if it was not before. It is also not intended to avoid any costs charged on you by the provider for using the Wifi Hotspot (Mobile AP).
