Works great, but one suggestion for perfection. This is a perfect shortcut to tethering options for phones that don't come with a shortcut app/widget out of the box. This is not intended to get around tethering subscription plans, but to offer an easy toggle. I would recommend an enhancement. If WiFi is on when you turn on mobile hotspot, the widget appropriately shuts WiFi off. However, it would be amazing if the widget took into account the status of WiFi before hotspot is toggled, so when you turn the hotspot off, WiFi will be turned back on.
Upgrade of GalS3 killed it Used this for years. Grandfathered into AT&T I still have unlmtd data for almost nothing. I could tether forever lol. Upgraded my androidware, asks for service upgrade to tether now. :-(
USB Tethering doesnt work the first time WiFi hotspot works well, but usb tethering was what I was looking forward to, and it doesnt work the first time. You can use the usb tethering switch once you have first connected it manually, which is not much of a use. You have to connect manually again if you have disconnected the data cable.
Does what it says, awesome widget:) At first had a little problems setting it up. But got it all situated.. just add the widget to home screen then connect . Everything works perfectly fine. Using my wifi router to android phone to a computer with no wifi adapter without a problem. ;) awesome widget
Utter garbage Seemed to work at the start, until I realised it was constantly flipping portable AP on and off (even though I was trying to use USB tether). Then USB tethering switch stopped working and the portable AP kept going on and off even after I junked the widget. Had to restart phone to get it to stop, save yourself the trouble and avoid this garbage.
Does not work after upgrade I recently upgraded my software and this app no longer works as it did. It will now check with the carrier and only allow tethering if you pay for the AT&T service. Essentially, no better than the native tethering tools in android.
