EasyTether Lite allows you to use your smartphone connection to navigate on your computer
This version has been enhanced and includes no usage restriction.
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 great.

Between working from the road and missing my favorite mmo, easy tether has saved the day. Since you can install the drivers for the computer via mass storage on the phone, you don't even need to do the setup before you leave the house. The wired tether usually charges the phone (unless data loads are heavy), as opposed to Wi-Fi tether draining the battery even faster. It also works off your primar
Works great, I use it to link my slingbox to my laptop on trips or long rides. Nothing like watching the NE Patriots when away from home.Decent at 3G great when you are in 4G.
I've been using this with my droid for several years. No internet service in the back woods. It has been my stay and gets the job done.
The best....forget about it...
Piece of cake to use my phone as backup internet access for my network when cable goes down! Excited to try new Bluetooth tethering now.
Yes I might have a little problem here and there, but hey don't all have that problem - I do say this app works and with Verizon and Windows 7,8 & 8.1 - Please have EasyTether work with Windows 9 when it comes :)
I got the full app 2 years ago. I have not had any problems working it on my Windows 7 OS, using my LG Motion phone. Thanks!
