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.
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.
Awesome! ! Compared to many others, this is the best!!! No confusing configuring to do. Download, after opening app, click start button, it then turns on the wifi, then on desktop/laptop search for wifi, click on barnacle, and your connected. Can't get any easier than that!! All others want IPs, swift numbers, blah blah. This one is really worth it!! Works awesome on my zte warp. Super fast. Can't tell difference in web surfing between home network and phone's hot spot, I know that's hard to believe but I really can't
Was great This was by far my most used app for my droid x. Now that I have my droid 3, verizon has seem to have blocked any attempt to get a free hotspot. When app starts it throws this error: DHCP: could not bind to DHCP port Address already in use. After that, you will be routed to verizon's hotspot app, and all internet will be blocked unless phone is restarted.
Great Pp I rooted my samsung ultra boost mobile 50 a month. I was useing wifi tether but I couldn't get my sister evo to conect to my hotspot since she has a data limit I don't want to root her phone. Because she wouldn't know what to do. Baracle worked perfect connected the xbox ipod touch computer her cell phone and was still able to. Use my phone.
Wow! Very Awesome. Requires root access, which can be a downer, But once you have that it's incredibly easy to setup and use. Battery drain is minimal, especially with the phone off. You can easily browse for a number of hours without having to worry about your battery. Ping times are very low on the wifi network, and add less then 1ms between desktop and internet. b(^-^)
