It took a little effort to debug on my PopOS linux system, but once I got it connected everything worked beautifully. Be aware that you can't test the lite version with https (that tripped me up). After testing the lite version you'll need to buy it to use it in practice. It does appear to be obfuscating hotspot data from my wireless carrier as expected. Not that Bluetooth tethering is useless, it's extremely slow. USB tethering is the only practical option you have.

Unregistered free version is useless. Secure socket layer (which is pretty much everything these days) is blocked unless your willing to purchase the app. I'm not going to purchase an app when I have no clue if it's going to work with my phone / computer setup. Need to allow a short period of testing or some other way of testing but simply blocking all https traffic is a bit much.

This app works perfectly every time from Samsung phone to Samsung tablet via Bluetooth. Connects quickly and I'm sure to have a better browsing experience if I get the pro version. My only complaint is that it worked at home and hoping to use it in my vehicle android head unit but no such luck. I loaded the EasyTether Tablet version on my Andriod Tesla style radio and the usb connection says it's connected but i get no internet on the head unit. Hoping the app developers have a fix for this.

What's new

- better TCP retransmit code to reduce CPU usage and improve compatibility (e.g. with OpenBSD)
- faster IP checksum code for ARM (64-bit and especially 32-bit)
- fix for the harmless forceful shutdown on Android 8+ if no services are enabled
- fix for the v1.1.18 regression on rare Android 3.x/4.0 devices (pre-3.0 or 4.0.3+ were not affected)
