Some Solutions / Workarounds I'm using a ZTE Blade and an unknown WM 8650 tablet (blue LED). If I start the server on the blade without it connected to a wireless network e.g. acting as a hotspot, I get the force close issue. The tablet doesn't have hotspot capability. My solution is to use a third device (Windows phone) as the hotspot, connect both devices to that, start the server on the Blade and the client on the tablet and away we go. Not quite as ridiculous as it sounds as the WP is my main device (with the data contract) and I can leave the other two in the car. I would buy a decent phone / tablet but the ZTE and the tablet were both cast offs so cost me nothing. Seems to work pretty well (GMaps and MM Tracker, pity they didn't explain the limitation.
No go on HTC Plus App stops working immediately on launch. Tried several times and even un- and re-installed....same thing.
Good app Was force closing at first. After I entered the IP address in the server it started working. Get the IP from your client device after you are tethered. Go to settings and tap on your connection. Make sure GPS is getting a location on server (icon stops blinking) before starting client.
Does not work with WiFi tether
Closes on lollipop
Perfect match Galaxy S and G-Tablet - perfect for sharing GPS with G-Tablet. Only quirk on Android 4 is that it won't find proper Broadcast Address for server side - need to enter G-Tab's IP address in manually to get it to work. Works fine using gingerbread phone as server though.

- 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
