Just plain awesome I was given a cheap Android tablet and was saddened by the lack of GPS. Then I found this app. I can now use my tablet for navigation on a screen that's easily readable. It works on both my home network and my hotspot. Thanks!
Loved it, I had to test a number of mobile apps I am writing on non-gps enabled tablets and this app was the solution; it saved me hundreds by allowing me to use a generic $49 tablet for my client and for testing, works fine on a Samsung Galaxy s4 and a generic 9.9" Android 4.4 tablet. Well worth the price.
Seems to Work Fine The interface is nice and simple. The widget ON/OFF is a very nice idea. The app used to be buggy, but has since improved upon my recent testing. In the limited in-house testing, switching the server into and out of the lock-screen. The client remains stable. I've only seen one related crash on the server end which is a big improvement from before where it crashes ALL.THE.TIME It looks to be a decent solution and will redo the review upon further testing.
Server doesn't work I got this in order to use Sygic with my kindle fire HD 7 running cyanogen mod 10.2. It works fine on that but the server force closes on my lg lucid running android 4.0.3
Crashes all the time on 4.4 (tablet, client) and 5.0 (SGS5, server) - on each network change and without specific reason. Some previous version was more stable (i purchased it in mid-2014). Have to look for other solution.
Good in theory..... Client was never able to make a connection and server app frequently crashes. Would love to see this puppy running as advertised but right now its a 2 star app.

- TetherGPS Server should now properly acquire the broadcast IP (no need to manually enter an IP)
- TetherGPS Client now invokes a multicast lock to ensure UDP broadcasts are received
