Beta Test This! Tether for Android

Tether, the company who originally produced a Blackberry app allowing users to tether their smart phone data to their computer is now officially in beta! Tether has sent out emails to those previously signed up for their beta this evening. My own notification arrived just a little while ago.  If you are not signed up for this beta but would like to particpate, you can find it here. Fill out the information and you’re good to go.  Happy tethering!

    I'm thinking of buying an android incredible, but two different reviewers say that EasyTether lite blocks http sites; yet i am reading here that it doesn't. is there a difference between the incredible and the old one?

    I have an HTC Droid Incredible and use EasyTether lite. It works pretty well. Its good for web surfing. Does ok for Hulu. and not very good for Torrents. I cant log onto facebook or gmail because their secure but hey I can live with that. I do plan on buying the 9.99 paid version which does allow for secure sites. its a great app.

    Here is some info from the website

    It does not require root access. EasyTether shares your Android smartphone connection with your PC. This app allows you to tether your Android to a desktop or a notebook computer. EasyTether uses exactly the same data plan that is used for the on-phone Internet access like in the built-in browser or e-mail app or youtube application. No additional tethering fees.

    EasyTether Lite will block secure sites (HTTPS). The paid app does not block secure sites.

    Before finally own the tither android, it is really profitable to practice and get used to the new system and features.  However, it is interesting to experience its new and unique features.
