    Sigh after reading, it looks like it is only a 14 day free trial then it will cost 15.95 (for a limited time).

    I'm SO pleased to see an alternative to MyWi. While many agree MyWi is great, I chose to boycott them after they charged for a version upgrade because of OS version update, which offered no compelling new features to justify.

    I know, everyone attacks me for it, and that's fine, you're entitled to your own opinion but mine is that MyWi was greedy, and I'll gladly pay any competitor for theirs this time just to take business away from MyWi

    That's it. 4.18 ... "free edition" should be called "2 week free trial edition"

    ok just got it


    it wifi tethers to other iPhones/iPads perfectly, and USB tethers to my laptop. However, will not wifi tether to the laptop or other wifi-enabled devices (Android phones, WinMo phones, etc.)

    iPhone 4, Limera1n, iOS 4.1

    Egh, no WiFi hotspot for the laptop? That seriously limits desire to be honest.

    Seriously...? MyWi has a limitation with it being only compatible with laptops and other Apple products. Other phones can't detect the Ad-Hoc network.

    I installed this, it told me I needed to restart my phone to enable it, I did. Nothing happened so I tried again and my phone wouldn't reboot. Just got stuck at the Apple logo for an hour. Had to restore.

    Does this only create a wireless ad hoc network?

    Yeah, it is not really a "mobile Hotspot" it is just a Machine to Machine Ad-hoc connection

    Yeah I figured this out after I downloaded it. I managed to get my hopes up and then right back down after just a few minutes lol.

    The signal strength is very weak when using this app, even when set to 100% I keep losing signal. Much better just to use tetherme USB mode.

    Some phone's don't have ad-hoc networking enabled.

    I can connect my iPhone via MyWi to ANY device that supports ad-hoc networking. It's up to the other device, not the iPhone.

    Any phone that creates a network does it in ad-hoc fashion. Even froyo's native tethering creates an ad-hoc network. If you want a mobile hot spot that doesn't use ad-hoc you need to get a mifi or something.

    FWIW I can use mywi to tether to my friend's Galaxy S on t-mo but not on my other friend's droid incredible on VZ.

    Its up to the device, or in some cases, the carrier. Don't blame mywi. Anyone who can't see the ad-hoc network created by mywi needs to use GOOGLE and determine if their device actually supports it.

    Well that sucks. I just got it today and it works with my iPad no problem. I need the wifi hotspot for the iPad.

    To purchase a license you go to http://pdanet.co/buyi
    The terms state that the license is for the phone only. That sounds like you have to buy a new license when going from one phone to the next. So if you upgrade to a new iPhone you have to buy it again. :confused: Or did I read that wrong?
