Team review

" Share connection ! "

The application has not yet detailed description, however the team assigned the note of 8 / 10. This note is based on the following criteria: Quality, Usefulness, Ease of Use, Privacy Concerns of user data (depending on the permissions required)..

The app is compatible from version 2.0 of Android. Any supperior OS version will support it.

Its weight is very light, less than a megabyte is sufficient to store and operate.

Its number of downloads in the Android Market (Google Play) makes it an extremely popular application and rightly so. More than a million users are using it on mobile or on touch pad.

Well, other methods have worked for me, but none consistently. This worked without any special configuration, it is fast, and continues to work on my rooted Droid X running Liquid ICS 2.0 tethering Cricket's 3g. 5/5
Negative review DOES NOT RUN ON 4.4 KITKAT by anonym
May want to mention that somewhere a bit more obvious so people like myself don't spend an hour trying to get it to work! If/when I get this working, be it by downgrading or if there's ever a fix, then I'll rate it based on normal circumstances. Until then... 2/5

Negative review Serious privacy issue by anonym
Each time the app is opened, it sends a message back to the owners website with my imei number, location and install date. Please explain why you require my location and my imei. And also why I can't disable that being sent. 1/5
Negative review Use to be good, don't know what happened?? by anonym
I've used this app for years (like 2) and all of a sudden it crashes constantly. I am rooted and I have reinstalled the app many times. I am giving 3 stars because I know it is a good app, just something must be up right now. UPDATE**** It has been a few months and NOTHING has been done. The app still crashes and is useless. Therefore 1 star is what this app deserves. I am very disappointed... this used to be an amazing app, I wonder what happened? 1/5
Positive review Pure Excellence Materialized by anonym
Ive tried about 20 wifi and tethering apps paid and free. None worked EXCEPT open garden. Thank you! Didn't have to install a server on my desktop or add ons. No third party ads no carrier interruption. Superb workmanship on this app. Cricket Kyocera hydro c5171 ice cream sand which 4.0.4 dell inspiron 5/5
Negative review Doesn't work on sprint s6 edge by anonym
Everytime I try it it says unfortunately has stopped working. What am I doing wrong. Anyone know where I can get free wifi on sprint. Had foxfi on Verizon but can't find crap that works with sprint 1/5
Positive review Woop Woop by anonym
Works like a dream. Now I can have Internet wherever I'm at, no need to hunt for a hotspot. Just RTFM really well on how to root your phone. Not a complaint at all. OS is LXLE 12.04.3. SSID shows up in NetworkManager. 5/5
Positive review Sofar by anonym
So far, so good. Love the comment... "wheres the button to turn it on, couldn't find the button"... i dont think the "button" as u put it, could be any bigger. Maybe u want it full screen on a 10" tablet? Could u see the "button" then? Maybe super glue a shirt button to the centre of your screen, about 2/3rds of the way down.."viola..theres ya button" 4/5
Negative review Terrible by anonym
Ever time I start to tether the app force closes. can I just get a simple wifi tether app without any stupid bullshit. I'm really annoyed if you can't tell !! 1/5
Positive review by anonym
I like the program so far, but it is limited. If you are running Linux Mint 17, it seems to work. There is a problem when trying to encrypt the signal. This causes the program to crash. After it crashes, it is necessary to uninstall and then reinstall the program. Unfortunately, an open connection is a security risk if you are trying to check in on your bank account. With Windows 10, the hotspot shows up but the connection is refused. With android 4.4.2 the hotspot does not show up at all. The interface is simple and easy to use. I was about to send in a donation when I discovered the deficiencies in the program. I will wait until the bugs are fixed. My phone is rooted so I don't know if the program will work without rooting. I hope that development continues. I would like to keep this program. 4/5
Positive review PS3 w/ Thunderbolt issues by anonym
SO SAD! Used to work for my dectects my tether but times out when connecting to ip address. Same goes with other tether apps. Also used different roms but still no luck. Anyone know a fix??? Rooted Htc Thunderbolt running Das Bamf SoaB 1.4 5/5
Negative review App is crap by anonym
Heard so many good things about this, I'm rooted. Everytime I try and begin tether it crashes and days it started with errors and force closes. This app is garbage. Please update and fix bugs or I'm uninstalling as I'm sure the rest of us will. Thank you 1/5
Negative review Very disappointing!! by anonym
The app does not work. Each time it is installed, the app freezes and shuts down without ever functioning. Phone has been restarted, and app has been reinstalled numerous times. If this is repaired and afforded the opportunity to actually use the app without waiting time, I may change the review. But it may work differently on your phone. 1/5
