Reconfiguration problem I've been using this service for over a year but needed to reinstall the app to get it to recognize a new phone. Simply clicking the Configure button did not work, as it would repeatedly scan for a phone without discovering it. That's tough to do without a separate Internet connection.
Working again with Android 5.1 and up This app and all other tether apps were broken by a flaw in Android 4.4. But after Android 5.1 it works again. And since most carriers charge a lot extra for a tether add on, you need something like this to tether without the add on fee (my carrier is $20-$40 /MO extra.)
Wi-Fi + Bluetooth Works very good on my Ouku 7" tablet via BT tether. Clean and modernly designed app look. Highly recommend
After you purchase the Fox-fi key, You don't really need this app, just access the Internet from your phone, tablet, or computer wi-fi settings using your phones data plan. Watch Sling TV, CBSN, Local live news, entertainment, etc, etc.
I am contused. Some apps says "No internet connection" but I did this review via the Google's play store. What's going on?
Workaround I use a small USB powered WiFi router to give the tablet a hotspot to connect to. Configure the WiFi connection to the router with a fixed IP address like 192.168.1.2 so that it doesn't try to get an IP address from the router.
Version 3.1 support Android 6.0 or above.
