Barnacle WiFi is an app that turns your Android into a router WiFi. That's it, it uses your 3G/4G to generate a wireless connection point through which you can connect PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox or any other device that supports WiFi connection. It shows the "clients", that's it, the devices that are connected through your Android.
Don't expect to have a fast connection if you're using your phone connection to navigate on a computer. It's just for emergency situations, not to watch videos on Youtube or download a great amount of files. Watch out your data usage when you're tethering, specially if you have a data plan. The app includes a download/upload counter to monitor it.
Barnacle WiFi has been developed by szym.net. Barnacle WiFi is the only app that they've launched so far. Despite of this, it seems they're on the right track in light of the success they're reaching with this app.
Barnacle is a great app that will, sorry for the expression, "save your ass" in certain situations: when you need to have Internet access to use some devices that doesn't have. High recommendable.
Share your 3G with Windows, Mac/iPod/iPad, Linux, Xbox

AVG on my droid caught it as malaware
If you are looking for a wifi tether that just works this isn't it. Starts fine I think but never shows up as an access point.
It work on cm7 x8 stock kernel
I tried at least ten other WIFI tether apps before finding Barnacle. It gave me a message about a problem and asked me if I wanted to try a work around. I accepted, and now I'm writing this message from my laptop WIFI
Disconnects in the middle of use sometimes.
Havent got.to try it. But heard its pretty good
