    The title says it all. Can anyone who bought this app confirm that it still works on IOS5?

    It's not useless if you snagged handy light and are worried iOS5 might have broken its functionality.

    Anyway, if its useless why did you respond and consequently bump it?

    If most other apps break--its likely temporary since the developer can push out an update and fix it.

    Handy Light is no longer available on the app store -- so if it breaks under a new OS it can never be updated and fixed. Therefore, if you care about its functionality one should know *before* updating. Do you even know what Handy Light is by the way?

    Anyway, sorry your grumpy today and have nothing better to do than to comment on a thread you keep saying is useless.

    Not useless at all. Exactly what I was looking for in fact.

    Haven't used Handy Light for a while since my old iPhone 4 was jailbroken and had MyWi, but now I'm on iOS5 on a new 4S and am glad to know that the 1 feature I was missing (tethering) is still available with this 'work around.' And no I don't want to add tethering because I don't want to give up unlimited data.

    Anyway, thanks for posting.

    I'm not sure everyone is getting you, OP.

    Handylight was an app that allowed you to tether for free and did not require a jailbreak. Apple pulled it once the word got out.

    I'm actually very surprised Apple hasn't killed it yet, not that I'm complaining.

    Ha! I'll miss MyWi with iOS5. I totally forgot that I bought HandyLight. Glad it still works. Thanks for the reminder OP.

    Handy Light isn't just another app.

    Thanks OP for confirming. I was wondering but hadn't had a chance to try it yet.
