    The rock site says updates are free...

    "My Application Updates
    You can*receive updates to your licensed and trial apps for free by simply opening your Rock Your Phone*Desktop Client and choosing*"Your Apps".**You can also update your*apps directly on your iPhone by opening the RockApp and choosing Manage."

    So why are they charging $9.99 for the os4 update of mywi? It is a update of a app I've already bought..

    Sooooooooo, any idea where the Dev is? It seems there's a number of people still having issues with it and the Dev is nowhere to be found here or in the MyWi dedicated forum. Less than impressive.

    Has anyone used more than 5GB (10GB???) thru MyWi on AT&T unlimited plan? I've never tried it out for fear of getting overage or tethering charges. I used a couple gigs last month, but nothing crazy.

    What's the most any of you have used?

    There are people that use 30+ gigs a month.

    Hmm, not too surprising that he's gone...

    I am surprised that you are surprised. As I said earlier, take a look around ANY of his (dedicated) support forums. He is nowhere to be found. He is obviously a very talented developer...he has a few very nice apps, but he hasn't a clue how to handle customer support. What he needs to do is get a sidekick who can be the eyes and ears on these boards for him. Spirit of Logic (the dev for iRealSMS and PwnTunes) does this. One person handles the PR and tutorials for the apps, and that leaves the dev free to handle the hard work behind the scenes that makes it all work. Not that Psuskeels is spending all of his time putting out fires here, but I think that it would at least give his customers a means of contact and communication.

    I genuinely hope he develops a way to handle customer support, because I do like his work (Rock aside).

    By no means am I surprised by it, I just wasn't sure if I was just out of the loop about his current status.

    I am constantly impressed by the all round top notch quality that comes from SpiritofLogic. By far the most userfriendly, customer oriented dev in the jb community.

    I'm not sure where this sense of entitlement came from. When did people start expecting free major upgrades to software? I know it didn't come from the software on computers because almost every software manufacturer that charges for their software will charge you for major version upgrades. There are some that provide upgrades for life, but usually they will state that when you buy the software in the beginning. I don't remember seeing anything about free updates/upgrades for life when I bought MyWi the first time.

    I think it comes from a lot of the developers on the App store and the way the App store works. As far as I know, or a developer to charge for an upgrade, it has to be released as a new application. This makes getting users to upgrade difficult, because there isn't necessarily any good way to advertise these new versions. Right now, iTunes will tell you when an update for any of your applications is available, but if the new version of the application is a new application, you won't get notified. Take MLB At Bat as an example. When the new seasons comes around, a new version comes out. To get the content for the new season, you have to buy the new application. I don't use a whole lot of applications so that's the only example I can come up with.

    For those that are comparing updates to App store apps that make the application compatible with iOS4 to MyWi and some of the other Jailbreak apps, that's just a bit rediculous. One of the reasons some of these apps aren't in the App store is that they use functions of the iOS that they aren't supposed to. For a lot of apps in the App store, they just have to be recompiled (with no actual code changes) to be "iOS4 compatible". This doesn't mean they will utilize any of the new functionality, but they will be compatible. The same can't be said for applications that may use functions of the OS that may no longer be there or have changed in a slight and unpublished way.

    If don't expect to get a new version of your Internet Security suite or AV software for free, why would you expect that out of this piece of software. Maybe Microsoft will give everyone that bought Office 2007 free upgrades to Office 2010? Yeah, right. But that is the same thing most people on here are expecting. If you transfer this philosophy to computer software, you should expect updates to all your currently owned software any time a new OS comes out. Maybe I'll get a free update to that version of MS Word that I had running on Windows 3.1? After all, Microsoft released a new version of Windows so they should give all users a free update to their software to run on the new OS, right?

    When you bought this piece of softare, it said it would work with a specific version of iOS. It did that and continues to do that. There was never any metion of a guarantee to work with future iOS versions. The fact that you decided to update your iOS doesn't automatically entitle you to free updates to all the software you purchased to work with the previous version. If developers and software manufacturers never charged for an upgrade, they would go out of business. Eventually, there will be fewer and fewer new users buying the software. If they can't sell upgrades to their existing customers, then they have no real incentive to develop those upgrades.

    The sense of entitlement I see on these forums is just too much. I didn't realize how cheap and selfish people were until I came on here and saw all these people complaining about not getting something for nothing.

    I somewhat agree, but I do find myself struggling with the way some of these guys handle their business when they are making a pretty nice chunk on the backs of guys that develop the jailbreak in the first place and only ask for donations. I'm pretty good about taking a crack and sending the fee to jb developers as a donation. Especially when I have a pretty good idea that the developer is full of **** when describing the feasibility of getting the older version up and running on the new OS.

    So while I certainly appreciate your sanctimonious sentiments, I do have to take issue with distribution of wealth when it comes to iEconomics. Not trying to be socialist. Just trying to give the JB developers their due.

    I have no problem giving the guys who developed the jailbreak in the first place their due. I'm all for donating to them. The major difference is that they have decided to donate their time and effort that goes into their development while the developers of paid applications have decided to sell their time and effort. Do you hold it against software manufacturers that sell applications that run on Linux? Linux is free and a lot of people that develop Linux don't get paid directly for their work, so should all applications that run on Linux be super cheap and include free/super cheap upgrades for life or be free all together?

    In the big picture, this just doesn't work. You're trying to combine the people that develop the jailbreak software with the application developers. Yes, they are dependent on the jailbreak software for their software to work, but that doesn't mean they have to have the same business philosophy as the people that develop the jailbreak software.

    So let me see if I understand your view on paying for applications. Instead of paying the people that write the application, you "steal" their work and pay the people that make the software that application is dependent upon? Wouldn't that be like installing a cracked/copied version of Adobe Photoshop and then sending a donation to Microsoft?

    You also state that you don't believe the developer when they say it took a lot of work to get their software to be compatible with iOS4. Are you a developer with a good understanding of iOS4 and how their software interacts with the iOS? If so, then please elaborate on how it shouldn't have taken much effort to get their software to be compatible. If not, then you're just making up reasons to feel better about using a cracked/stolen application. I don't necessarily have a problem with using cracked/stolen applications as I have done it myself, though I typically only use cracked applications when a full-feature trial version isn't available. However, I also don't come up with BS reasons as to why it's OK to use the cracked version. I know it's taking money out of the pockets of the developer and if enough people use the cracked version instead of paying for it, the developer will stop making new versions and we all lose.

    To each his own, but at least own up to what you are really doing.

    Not sure what I should own up to; I thought I made it abundantly clear what I was doing. I would rather in some instances that my money go to the JB devs. It doesn't make me feel any better about anything. Just something I like to do. Simple as that.

    What about those of us who could care less if they updated the software and added new features? They should give users the option to upgrade. If a customer doesn't want the added features let them use the original version and for the ones that want the upgrades then let them buy the upgrade. I myself don't care about the added features and I think they should make it compatible with iOS4 for current users. I think it's BS that they are forcing everything to buy the upgrade just because apple updated their software. If you agree with paying them the $9.99 upgrade fee then how would you feel if every app out there did the same thing?

    I agree. I used this app for nothing more than to enable native tethering. I could care less about wifi tethering as it kills your battery life anyway. I have never trusted these "apps" for tethering. I much preferred hacks that simply enable native tethering. Their idea is simply: everyone is going to upgrade to 4.0, so lets find a way to make all these people pay us again for software they already bought.

    To the person comparing this to Office 2007 vs Office 2010. You need to work harder on your analogies. When MSFT release Office 2010 they do not discontinue support for existing users. Hell I've seen people using Office 2003 on Windows 7. There is a difference between releasing updated software with new features and alienating your customer base by refusing to allow your app to work on a new version of iOS. IMO MyWi just shot itself in the head. It is my guess that aggravated existing users will simply go find a cracked copy. And with a price like $20, they will have a harder time getting new customers as well, who instead will also go find a cracked copy. When iOS 5 comes around it will be interesting to see if MyWi is still around.

    can't believe this thread is still going strong. Obviously the app creator can care about everyones issue with paying the upgrade fee!!

    I am sure this was the thoughts going through the developers head too. "Hey let's recharge our customers who already paid for this app since their version is useless now" Whatever. I am not paying another $10 for this supposed added functionality I don't want. All I want is native tethering enabled, I am sure I am not the only person either. I think the developers put these so called new features in here just a means to justify doubling the price and charging their existing customers to use their app on 4.x

    You can enable native tethering without MyWi. Don't bother with it then
