Finally! An free one!

While I do understand that developers need to get money too, I don't think that they should charge money for using someone else's (parrothd) work and simply developing a GUI for it. I'd be happy to donate to people, but I don't think they should make money mandatory.

Thanks a bunch for this app and I hope your app becomes widely used! I'm probably going to use it's source as an example for one of my projects (which is going to be free and probably open source as well)

EDIT: Quick question: Does this automatically turn WiFi off when starting tethering? Also, you should come up with a more creative name ;-P

I was referring to the application name itself not the SSID, actually =P

Also, I posted a feature request in the issues section of your Code page... It's probably not where it belongs, but it's the only place I found. It would be cool if you made it notify on connect in the status bar.

Thanks
it is pretty cool. Even turns off wifi for use. Doesn't turn it back on after exiting, but no big deal. Nice to have a simple GUI for tether. Better than terminal....start tether and all.

I was just about to waste the 9 bucks for the paid app when I saw a link to this in the comments section. This is especially sweet for me since the cable and internet are out in my apartment. Thanks!
