EasyTether Lite allows you to use your smartphone connection to navigate on your computer
First off, uninstall the Lite version from your smartphone before upgrading.
You just need to enable 3G/4G/WiFi connection on your smartphone and connect it to your computer via USB. Then, you have to choose the OS running on your computer to avoid incompatibilities and start surfing the web (Windows 7/Vista/XP-64 bit/XP-32 bit., Mac OS 10.4-10.7, Ubuntu, Fedora supported). It doesn't need either root access either advanced configuration. It's for all audiences. However, it allows you to set DNS in case you have to.
The main flaw of this app is that the developer blocks HTTPS, Instant messengers and game console thethering on the Lite version. The only way to unblock these features is upgrading to the full version ($9.99). And it has to be said that it's far from being cheap. Given that there are other Tethering apps that doesn't block it (and which are free), it has no sense.
Anyway, this pro version allows you to do interesting features: full access to https for secure sites as facebook, gmail, banking, etc. It allows tether to ps3, xbox360, wii via your PC.
We wish, Mobile Stream, the developer of this app will re-think this way of making money with his app. Besides that, the app works great.

Tried many tethering apps but either ads or had to do a thousand steps to get to work, nope not this one. Had this for years and still works. GET IT!
