    Default Netshare - 3G Tethering App in App Store
    UPDATE 2: Netshare is now showing up in Appstore searches

    UPDATE: Netshare is back via the following link: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/M...286541579&mt=8

    Thanks to llol_slim for the link!


    IPhone users jumped for joy last night, when, for a brief time, they were able to download a tethering application made by Nullriver called Netshare for $9.99 that allowed them to marry their iPhone's 3G Net access to their computer. However, the application was removed from the iTunes App Store within hours of its debut, and as of this writing there is no sign of Netshare on the App Store.

    When Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone 3G at WWDC in June, he proudly showed how 3G speeds were approaching those of Wi-Fi, but AT&T quickly said it wouldn't allow the iPhone 3G to be tethered.

    Why AT&T kiboshed the idea of the iPhone as a tethered handset is unclear as the company does allow other handsets to be used for tethering. Furthermore, how did Apple let this app get online at all since all applications in the App store must be vetted and pre-approved by Apple before getting into the store? Did Apple simply just let one slip pass the goalie? Nullriver, the company that created the application, posted a note on the Macrumors forum, stating that it is not sure why Apple removed the application. According to Nullriver, Netshare did not violate any of Apple's developer or App Store agreements. So far Apple has not responded to Nullriver's inquiries as to why the application was removed.

    Maybe a installer/netshare simultaneous release? Would be nice. What happened to the people who bought it last night? Apple cant make them uninstall it

    According to MacRumors it is back:

    After an unusual sequence of events, Nullriver, Inc.'s NetShare app has reappeared on the iTunes App Store.

    The $9.99 application promises to allow you to share your iPhone's network connection with your computer.
    Share your iPhone's EDGE or 3G Internet connection with your computer using NetShare. NetShare provides a SOCKS5 proxy for your computer to connect to.

    The application appeared briefly last night but was pulled for unknown reasons. Note that the tethering application does not appear to work with all traffic (such as mail, AIM requires configuration), but does work for web browsing. The App is available by direct link only at the moment and will not show up in searches: App Store link.

    Screenshots of the instructions were posted in our original story and a forum user has written up a detailed tutorial.

    Can someone please tell me how to install/use this app because I did not jailbreak my phone and really didn't want to because it voids the warranty.
