MyWi 4.0 Released with All New Features
MyWi, you know that little app that turns your iPhone into a WiFi hotspot with the tap of a button, has just received a major update. MyWi 4 is now on sale through Rock Your Phone and brings full support to iOS 4 and a host of new features and improvements.
Here is the complete list straight from the devs at Intelliborn:
MyWi 4 New Features and Improvements:
⁃ Faster performance
⁃ Lower battery consumption
⁃ Choose the In Use Indicator that you want:
⁃ - - Status bar icon (no battery use)
⁃ - - Blue pulsing bar (10% - 15% more battery)
⁃ Adjust the transmit power (Between 30% and 100%)
⁃ See who is connected to your hotspot (IP addresses)
⁃ Choose from a list of subnets to dish out over DHCP
⁃ Battery consumption meter
⁃ USB Bridge mode. (Connect your laptop over USB to the phones 3G or WiFi connection!)
⁃ Create a WiFi Hotspot to connect multiple laptops or mobile devices to share your iPhone's internet connection
⁃ 40 bit and 104 bit WEP Security to prevent others from accessing your WiFi HotSpot
⁃ Ability to enable USB Tethering on your iPhone
⁃ Broadcasts the Network Name (SSID) - no need to fuss with creating an adhoc network on your laptop
⁃ Shows up and down bandwidth usage
A couple of the new features in particular will be incredibly useful. You know all those WiFi hotspots we get to use for free from our iPhone/iPad 3G but not from our laptops? Well now when you are at your favorite Fast Food eatery or area Airport you can bridge your laptop to your phone over USB cable and voila WiFi on your laptop. Or how about at a hotel that only let's one MAC address on the in room WiFi? Signup from your phone instead of your laptop and then let all your devices have at it!
My other favorite is the battery consumption (lower than ever ) and the battery meter. Choose the status bar icon over the annoying blue bars and watch in real time your battery drain level. Lower the transmit power to conserve battery. Plug your phone in to power during those large downloads or extended use periods and see confirmation that your battery charge is on the rise.
MyWi 4 is available through Rock.app now. All these new features and iOS 4 support come at a nominal price. $19.99 for new licenses and $9.99 to upgrade for any previous MyWi 3.x owners.
