Review from John Ramirez
No longer working It works great when browsing but my tablet does not recognized it has an internet connection when trying to access internet through apps that require the web. I would love to be able to use this for mobile invoicing with QuickBooks and Credit Card app. We would gladly pay and give 5 stars if we could get other apps to work while connected.7 Update: Downgrade from 4 stars, Constantly having Wifi connection problems on 3 devices when I use this app, I loose signal and no Internet connection, This is conflict
April 24, 2013Please update to 2.1.7 and let us know if you're still experiencing connectivity issues. Thanks!
Good idea but... It's good idea. I opened my home WiFi to share with others "openwireless" but if use this app, I'm going to run out of data sharing with others. One possible use case is for travel hostel setting, sharing and passing on internet from lounge with WiFi to rooms ..
Amazingly it works! I am amazed! Would you please add support for tether via WiFi Direct? It's up to twenty times faster than Bluetooth and has much greater range. Bluetooth is kind of slow and more difficult to pair properly. I really like the app though and you have my support. Thanks OpenGarden. MetroPCS and T-Mobile charge a lot of money for relatively small amounts of data. 5 dollars for 2.5GB and 5 dollars each GB. I have unlimited data.. Why can't I share a little?
Waste of time Gave this so many attempts, I lost track. It just doesn't work! Shows my tablet as connected to the Internet via my phone, but when trying to open a website, there is no connection to the Internet?! I really want to like this app, as the idea is great. However, execution is a fail.
Deserves less than 0 stars! I have wasted over 3 hrs trying to get this stupid app to do something other than say it's connecting! I did everything told to do. I tried every link provided only to be taken to a nonsense site that offered no help in any way! I am extremely disappointed and feel stupid for trusting! I just hope and pray that my phone and tablet have not been compromised!
good app.. should have password setting option and wifi direct option same as hotspot so that other device can easily connect.. I am facing connection problem most of time coz of automatic only!! :(
Seems to be working but.. The odd part is that it still says connecting and didn't show that it should be working but I click on internet and voila´ I have internet on laptop. Confused but happy and grateful nonetheless..
