  • MyWi Released! Turn your iPhone into a Wifi hotspot!



    Create a WiFi HotSpot with a press of a finger! Wherever you are - you can connect your laptop or other mobile device to your iPhone easily!

    Features:
    - Create WiFi Hotspot to connect mutiple 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 and Bluetooth Tethering on your iPhone as well
    - Broadcasts the Network Name (SSID) - no need to fuss with creating an adhoc network on your laptop
    - Uses less battery and much faster then PdaNet due to native routing
    - Shows up and down bandwith usage


    NOTE: MyWi does not support the iPhone 2G. Please see your carrier contract for eligibility and/or additional fees.
    I played around with this all afternoon, and it seems to work great. A nice addition to this app is that you don't have to have tethering enabled from a custom ipcc either, you can enable tethering from MyWi. I had three laptops connected to my phone earlier this afternoon and they all were able to cruise the net quite nicely. MyWi sells for $9.99 and is a great application to have on your iPhone. There is a free 10 day trial available also


    cash edit: you can get it via rockyourphone



    Enjoy!

      So, this will not incur additional charges from AT&T? We only pay the one-time fee of 9.99 (great price btw)?
      Please confirm...I think this is the first new app that will bring me back over to the jailbreak community! This would be great!
      I love my 3Gs...and this would make it...well Rock!

      Yeah, when you spend a couple hundred on the phone and almost $100/month, $9.99 is a deal breaker.

      I had used something like this with my Nokia E71. It is a great thing to have when you want to use your computer somewhere but don't have internet around. May have to check it out.

      I think there still charges from AT&T because by logic it will use your celullar data network.

      Thanks....I kinda figured. But that would still be great as we have a Data Plan, so we shouldn't see "additional" charges other than what we are paying already. Right?

      Wanted to try this But Was surprised that I couldn't install this app without 1st creating a Rock ID - AND that wasn't possible without a PC and their PC installed client software. Uggg. AND this info wasn't even available after downloading RockApp via Cydia. Was hoping to use MyWi on this business trip but guess I must wait till I get home.

      Looks like a handy app instead of PdaNet but don't want to install the rock App on my phone..so will wait and see if it appears anywhere else..

      MES: Sorry for the confusion on creating a RockID via the website and phone - we removed people from creating a RockID from the iPhone version of the website as it caused confusion for the non-technical folks (they still have to soft-unlock (jailbreak) their iPhone and didn't understand). This caused some issues for folks coming in through Cydia. You don't need to install any software on your desktop. Just use a web browser on your desktop and you can create a RockID. (then login on the iPhone app to download MyWi). Thanks for your patience!

      1. It won't appear anywhere else.
      2. You do not need to install any software on your desktop, just the RockApp on your phone.

      Pretty damn sweet.

      I woke up a few hours ago and read it from my phone as "MyWii" and was thinking "No ******* way did they port that!" LOL

      Where I live there is fairly poor 3G coverage, this is a cool ap but I think it would be painfully slow.

      you are creating a wifi connection instead of the normal tethering.

      Correct me if I am wrong but now it would be possible to connect anything that is wifi enabled to your network. Like a PSP

      What a complete JERK, at least try and understand what the App is about before coming out with such crap.

      Downloaded the trial to give it a shot... seems like a cheaper alternative to PDAnet.

      I'm having problems with it always turning itself off. My PC can see the adhoc access point and connect. I can load a few pages but soon it turns itself off.

      It's hard to tell what the occurrence is caused by -- not linked to sleep, locking, backgrounding the app, etc...

      All of this with a 3GS os 3.0. Anyone else have other experiences? Working with a 3gs?

      My understanding of Rock Your Phone is that it carries out some kind of JB to allow you to run there apps

      Well I'm already JB with redsn0w.

      Will Rock your Phone pick this up or will it also change/Jialbraik my iphone in its own way as it would if I wasn't already Jailbroke.

      I think I've got it. If I install through Cydia it wont but If I install through the desktop client then it would. Is my theory correct.

      Hope this makes sense.

      hes not exactly trying to be a jerk. if you read it carefully and understand it....hes not flaming on the app itself. hes talking about apple and att (mostly). hes trying to say that the iphone can already handle tethering....and be made as a wifi hotspot without having other devs create a program for it....IF ATT ALLOWS IT AND APPLE ENABLES IT.
