iTether is an iPhone app that allows users to share their iPhone's internet connection with their Mac or PC computer over USB. However, the application was available for only a few hours on the App Store before Apple removed it over "carrier concerns (http://www.macrumors.com/2011/11/29/tether-says-apple-pulled-itether-app-over-carrier-burden/)".

There are two parts of the iTether app -- an iOS app and a computer-side application. Though the iOS app isn't available for sale anymore, Tether continues to offer updates to the computer-side apps. The company has released an update to the Mac client to fix a crashing problem under OS X Lion that a number of users have experienced.

The update can be downloaded from Tether's website (http://tether.com/iphone/mac).

I actually never had any problems with it crashing but am glad to know it's still working and they're still keeping it alive and working out the kinks. Anyone that had issues, has this stopped them?

I downloaded this app when it was available in the app store, but honestly, I don't think I will ever use it. I can really just do everything from my phone.

Awesome, I was just fighting with this app today, glad to see a fix available.

I couldn't use Mail prior to the update to send mail. Does this update fix this now?

Its a shame, because the product works great otherwise.

I never experienced the crash, but it is good to know improvements are continuing--even with Apple pulling the iOS app. Hoping that someday soon the gouging for tethering on already bandwidth limited plans will end (or that Apple will reconsider this wonderful app)!
