Latch on to some network! by LadyX
I found this app because my Wireless Tether for Root mysteriously stopped working and left me without wireless and in a bind. I had heard mention of this app but all together ignored it because I was perfectly happy with what I was using. Honestly, I'm really glad I found it. This app is simple to use, tells you what it's doing while it starts up and allows you almost every feature that you could possibly want when sharing your phones internet connection with another device. I've tried it on 3G and 4G and it seems to work flawlessly on the 3G network but not quite perfectly on 4G. Though this could be due to the 4G signal where I was testing. While I was in a 4G "area" it didn't have a strong signal. I have used it quite and bit and it seems to do fine with battery drain at least in comparison with the other apps like it. You're sharing your network and so that's going to take a bit of juice no matter how you slice it. This app also has widget which I have review here - http://appo.me/19qxe8
