EasyTether Lite allows you to use your smartphone connection to navigate on your computer
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.
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.

Best app I ever have gotten. I can use this phone to hook my laptop to the internet. And now thanks to their update. I can do via bluetooth. So no wires. Nice to see an app that actually does what it says it does
This worked for the first two webpages that I pulled up on my tablet, then it stops working. I can no longer pull up Facebook or webpages on my tablet when using the Bluetooth connection.
It worked fine for about ten minutes on a g3 but it stopped working I uninstalled in and reinstalled but it still won't work
If you don't pay them, they block all https traffic, meaning no banking, no buying things, and likely no email.
