Review from Clinton Flowers
Only thing that worked for me; works mostly I use a Nexus 7 16 gb running 4.2 and a OG Droid RAZR running Verizon's accidentally pushed 4.1.2. All other apps tried to ask Verizon if I bought tethering (though I only get 4 gigs, not unlimited), but this one just worked over Bluetooth. It does not work with most apps, including Netflix and Speedtest, and it works with play store but will not download, but Chrome works fine. I personally like lots of options, and I hear this stays as an unstoppable background process, so it loses a bit of points there.

I accidentally left this on all night and 2.9 GB of my plan is GONE now. What the heck? No thanks. I don't mind sharing but now I have nothing left of my 4G and will have to spend the whole month using 2G. I hope whomever used it all enjoyed the heck out of it. I WILL NEVER use this app again. Should have been an IMMEDIATE UNINSTALL!
Good concept but lacks on performance Very good concept but some minor bugs like you need to keep trying for connecting the devices. However the main drawback is the speed. I get very poor speed. Can use whatsapp for messaging only. May be developer team can incorporate any other medium apart from Bluetooth.
Open Garden Creates WiFi hotspot on phone. Tis app worked on my phone with KitKat. Allowed my Asus tablet to connect to internet. However it seems to think anytime bluetooth is turned on I want to use it even when I don't. Thus interferes with other usesfor bluetooth. Fix that.
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!
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.
I connected 7 devices on one internet connection from my phones unlimited data. You guys saved me alot of mulah. Thank for making a great program. Open Garden is a must have utility. After pairing devices by Bluetooth, run the open garden program. Connect. Its like a chain reactioning internet connection.
