Hotspot enabled on verizon unlimited data plan, set up all a go, works fine, runs all variety of devices, but there's no toggle or shortcut in samsung s7 for some inexplicable reason. Have to go into settings, etc., which is not convenient. Tried this app but it can't connect/doesn't recognize my credentials so I uninstalled. Don't feel too bad, it's a fate shared with other toggles I've tried so far. Still looking.

Man, you all should know by now that unless your data plan includes mobile hotspot, downloading a hotspot app is totally worthless, period. Carriers are smart enough to know when their customers are using hotspot applications to turn their phones into wireless access points. There has yet to be an actual app developer to make a true hotspot app to get around a carrier's tethering check provision. Until that happens, things will remain the same, especially when it comes to a software update!

This app has been working well for many years. Recently it has started malfunctioning and acting weird. When I turn the hotspot off, it sometimes turns itself back on immediately. Not through the app but through my device. How I know is because I get a notification message telling me I have just been connected. I have the latest update version. Help needed.
