"Make Your Phone A HotSpot"

Reviewed by / Apr 10, 2015

This app uses data to turn your phone into a hotspot.

THE VERDICT

This hotspot app allows you to turn your phone into a hotspot. You can't be on Wi-Fi. You must be on 3G or 4G data. You have to configure the app and then, if the phone has the capabilities, it can turn into a hotspot. Other devices that are capable of connecting to Wi-Fi, such as tablets and laptops, can now connect to your device.

The app is not the easiest thing to set up, but once you get the hang of it, it does get easier. It uses a lot of data, depending on how many other devices are connected and what they're doing. The connection's not the greatest, but it does work so if you need a device online, but don't have Wi-Fi, this can do it for you.

THE PROS

This app allows you to turn your phone into a hotspot so other devices can connect to the internet.

THE CONS

The app is not easy to use and can end up costing you in data consumption. The connection is often weak and lags.
