    It was supposed to be £5.99 in the app store. I got it for free :)

    Did anyone else (who actually managed to get their hands on it before it was pulled) experience this?

    Well isnt Netshare supposed to allow tethering to use the amazing all in one Safari while you're on the road or on the go?

    Netshare is for 'tethering' your iPhone's 3G internet connection to your Macs/PCs so that you may use your iPhone's [unlimited] internet on your Macs/PCs as well!

    And it was pulled off because ATT doesnt allow iPhone tethering!!

    Well there are other networks in the world besides AT&T that do support tethering like O2. Why can't they make it available in the UK and other countries that allow tethering. Just because AT&T have ****** terms and conditions doesn't mean the whole world should be penalised. :rolleyes:

    No they can't, they can only be put on computers that you have authorised through iTunes. You can only authorise a max of 5 computers.

    it'll skip the cost of the data card and allow you to use your iPhones 3G service to tether to your computer. Yes the iPhone is portable as it is, but sometimes an actual co outer is more useful for certain things you are doing that requires an internet connection.

    true true, but does tethering bring same speeds as the phone to your laptop?

    I have no clue as I don't own a laptop and did not buy the netshare app. Besides I have an iPhone 2.5G so there really is no point for me to tether. I'd be going worse than dial up. Maybe someone here can tell us if we get actual 3G speeds through tethering?

    if you have a jailbroken iPhone, they found a way to crack AppStore apps so the can be shared for free.
