Works fine Uses my 4G Samsung to connect my MacBook to the net. Have 2 other apps that do the same. All are equal in speed. USB tethering seems a bit faster, if you don't mind loading the program on your computer and paying for the app. Still looking for a wireless tether app that can transfer enough speed for my Mac to play videos smoothly. Not sure if that exists.
Does everything I need it to I use it to connect out in the field every day. If you're getting errors, try restarting the wifi on your phone before pressing the start button. Be careful your PC isn't running any auto updates or anything. You can blow through a month's worth of data incredibly quickly if you're not careful.
WOW! This is by far the best wifi hotspot app I have ever used. I have a Samsung Admire with Android 2.3.4. My service is Metro PCS. I have been using Barnacle for a week now with zero problems. It's almost too good to be true.
Better than Wireless Tether Wireless tether kept telling me I had to have some special ROM installed or something, but this one worked perfectly. Thank you so much! <3
Simple, but great Lightweight application, configured in 1 minute, works great, shows log online. Shows who is connected, shows data counting online. And most important, minimal permissions! All what is needed from a good application. Take it!
Computers' wifi work but not mobile wifi devices It works with my desktop and laptops. However, it doesn't work with my Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0, PSP and mintpad. The strange thing is, other Android phone (Motorola) belongs to my buddy able to find the signal and connected to it. Is there anybody can help me out if you experienced this issue before, so that I can shortcut the problem solving? I know it has to do with infastructure mode vs ad-hoc. Thanks in advance.
