maybe this is cheaper than mywi. still, i already got mywi, so has pretty much every other jailbreaker. so this is kinda silly

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.

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.
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.

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.

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.

first line of business :
im gonns atart prunning some of these jerk posts soon accompanied by warnings to people who dont follow forum rules....an opinion is an opinion but conducting yourself like a child just because you dont like the news does not give you the right to insult the writer, the writers content , or another member....
second line of business:
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.

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.

$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.
