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.

Let me start off by saying, before my Droid Maxx upgraded to KitKat, this app worked Perfectly. Now, the software in KitKat must terminate this app somehow, because I cannot access the internet like I used to. Please fix! Or find another way? I loved this app, it worked so seamlessly with my phone and laptop! Is there any other solution?
Every time I want to use the developer bridge (adb) I have to manually disable the kernel extension in /System/Library/Extensions/ and restart
This program has helped me so much. When my internet company started getting taken over we had outages like crazy. This program allowed me to talk on Skype on my pc. Now on vaca we need it again.

This is money well spent. I almost bought a modem for 4 times this amount. However, use HiSuite to connect to your computer when using Huawei, otherwise it won't work. Thanks guys!
