TetherMe, MyWi alternative – Cheaper and Better!
Hopefully you guys didn't shell out the $20 for MyWi like I did already. Don't get me wrong, MyWi is a great app and the price is equal to one month of tethering through AT&T so it's definitely worth it. HOWEVER, a new app has recently been released that is even BETTER and it's cheaper to boot. This app, unlike MyWi, also enables Bluetooth tethering instead of just USB tethering. Also the app installs right into the settings on your springboard so you don't even need to open an app to tether. If you are looking for a cheap alternative to MyWi, look no further, TetherMe has arrived and it's only $1.99!
Of course, not everything about TetherMe can be better than MyWi so it comes down to what you intend to use your tethering for. Make your decision by viewing the advantages and disadvantages below:
- PRICE - TetherMe is $1.99 compared to MyWi which is $19.99
- No application - TetherMe enables the built-in tethering function so it is configured in your devices settings screen just as if you had purchased the tethering package from AT&T, you don't have to open an app to tether, you just need to enable tethering in your network settings and you're good to go!
- Bluetooth enabled - The option to enable tethering via Bluetooth is one feature that TetherMe has that MyWi doesn't.
- TetherMe does not offer a "hot-spot" option. You can only tether your 3G connection to a single device whereas with MyWi you can create a wireless ad-hoc hot-spot that any number of devices can connect to.
So, basically, if you are looking for an app that will allow you to share your 3G connection with multiple devices and/or people, then MyWi is probably your best bet. However, if you are just looking for a way to tether 3G connection for yourself without spending a fortune then TetherMe is a sure bet!
