    You kids are harsh! You can skip the article if it doesn't concern you.

    I just downloaded PDAnet Free Version and didn't pay a cent and it works PERFECTLY on my MacBook Pro and there is NO Way I am paying $20 got mywi no matter how much better it is to do the same thing. I have use both and while mywi is a bit more convenient not $20 more convenient.

    Thanks for the article gentlemen

    Umm... I've owned PdaNet for iPhone for more than a year and it's been available for far longer, but I appreciate the news.

    [QUOTE=Halten77;5519905]*Sigh* before finding a post to flame on, read my other posts. I meant it needs iTunes for USB

    Not "flaming". I was responding to your article and you must have posted a correction before I hit submit reply. I posted because your original post was a bit misleading. And for thoes that read and take for gospel what is posted here that may have confused a few noobs. Either way you did change it to read USB thanks.

    How can we be "dumb" when we have different experiences with MyWi and PDAnet?

    The main difference between this and MyWi is that this existed before native tethering support and works on iOS2.x. Even if it didn't act as a host before, it did route over WiFi just fine.

    This isn't free, they give you a 14 day trial then start blocking all ssl sessions. It is 29 bucks to purchase.
    No. That's why I bought it. The paid version works like a true Internet connection capable of carrying any standard protocol.

    You're not FOLLOWING. The article says that you can use WiFi OR use a cable but you need a software client installed for wired tethering. This guy points out that MyWi requires a software component for wired tethering too and you go jumping back to WiFi. Why?!

    Also, it is possible to get away with tehtering without iTunes be either installing it, running tethering, and uninstalling it or extracting the 32 or 64 bit mobile device support files from the main installer.

    Imma stick to MyWi, which has been doing it great this whole time, and is 10 bucks cheaper.
    What? Like MyWi never had promotional pricing?

    Same here. They were the first I know of with no proxy server so they were the ones that got my money.

    It's really the native USB tethering support in the iPhone itself.

    I remember getting Mywi for free. Now I have to pay $20?
    I have used Pdanet tethered and it works good, but having it tethered
    does suck. If Pdanet makes a good FREE product, than maybe MYWI will go down in price.

    Actually, It's already caused my 3GS to Restart itself twice. Probably on a timer since it's not registered/paid for. Not so perfect.

    MMI needs to create a down rank option. Similar to engadget then, add it next to the thanks button. That way we can down rank the morons and trolls on here. Especially those clowns that want to post their stupid thoughts about why topics shouldn't be posted to the main page.

    Like others said, if you don't like it, don't read it. It may not be useful to you, but it may be useful to someone else.

    MyWi 4.0 costs over $20.00 with only a 3 day free-trial. PDANet is free. MyWi may work better but again, $20.00. It is TOTALLY not worth it.

    if this creates a wifi hotspot and not an adhoc one where i can connect devices that dont cater to adhoc networking, sign me up! i paid for my MyWi and im loving it but it is limited to devices who can accept adhoc

    Android has this feature built in... this is one of the reasons I sold my iPhone 4 to get an android phone. Love the iPhone but android 2.2 is just as good if not better without all the restrictions.

    Cool. Only prob is if your on verizon. Your either on data or phone call. We liked the droid during our beta test but with a unlocked iPhone it was a few steps behind. Also the bat life was 30% more consumption than the i4. The i4 does have tether built in and works well. Just ATT does not let the option run at it's current time. (hence the JB options).

    nobody cares about your Android phone here, Tony.

    and anything that forces MyWi to drop in price is okay in my book. I'll pay $10 for MyWi, but not $20. and I'll happily use PDANet until they revise that price.

    Your move, Intelliborn.

    I don't find this terribly interesting only because MyWi already works perfectly fine for me, but it certainly is newsworthy. I do wish the OP had addressed the pricing issue though, seems like a rather significant piece of information to disregard.

    indeed, this page

    $20 for MyWi is very worth it considering AT&T's option is $20/monthly. Just my opinion.

    AFAIK, Neither PDANet nor MyWi do 'true' AP-style hotspot -- both use AdHoc. I have an Eye-Fi card for my camera that doesn't support AdHoc and it doesn't see either 'hotspot' created by these two apps. Also, I'm not sure of this 'client' talk: neither app requires a wireless 'client' other than what your native OS supports to connect to wireless adhoc networks. And I'm pretty sure I've used the USB tether feature of MyWi without iTunes being involved: OS X sees my iphone as a network device when I use MyWi, get's an IP, default gateway and DNS.

    I guess the only comment I would make to the first point is yeah, insults are not needed and the OP should have noted this as an update rather than inferring this was a new app.
