"Great product but Could use Power User features"

July 26, 2015

 |  Version: Connectify Hotspot 2015.0.5.34877

Pros

Super Easy and fast to get a hotspot up and running

Cons

Would like control over which channel and band to use.

Summary

Overall this is a great product. It is really easy to get a wifi hotspot up and running and sharing connections. It would be even better if I could control Wifi band and channel to really tweak a multi-connectify hotspot environment.

"Excellent product"

July 24, 2015

 |  Version: Connectify Hotspot 2015.0.5.34877

Pros

I've been utilizing Connectify for about a year now. Simply a great product/software. Connectify has worked flawlessly from day one. I really appreciatte being able to create my own hotspot and share internet connection secure and safely. The "file fling" is very nice, allowing file transfers to my phone or another computer with ease.

Cons

I haven't found any flaws/cons to the software. It simply works great.

Summary

A must have software for all techy nerds ;)

"Ideal Alternative for Wifi-Routers"

July 22, 2015  |  By parvezenator

 |  Version: Connectify Hotspot 2015.0.5.34877

Pros

-Connectify turned out to be the best alternative for me when my router died. Great hotspot features and easy to use.
-Decent range and security options.
-Can handle multiple devices at the same time with good bandwidth.

Cons

The only drawback connectify has is every time you go out of the wifi range it doesn't reconnect automatically. The only way to reconnect is to stop the hotspot and start it again. This is a major flaw that becomes very irritating at times. Even if you go out of range for few seconds also the hotspot needs to be restarted to reconnect.

Summary

Overall i love connectify and it works great. I have the full version of connectify and i would like to continue using it. Hope that the hotspot reconnect problem get sorted out through future upgrades before a competitor comes out without this flaw.
All the best guys and keep up the great work.

"One Application to turn your PC into a Ultra-Router!"

July 08, 2015

 |  Version: Connectify Hotspot 2015.0.5.34877

Pros

? Hi-Speed Connectivity between devices.
? File Transfer option to connected devices.
? Now also acts as a wired router - for LAN gaming lovers like me. Just plug the two laptops together and enjoy gaming with your LAN buddy :D.
? One-Click action turns hotspot on or off at any time.
? Can also share a connected Wifi network - no fuss to turn Wifi off to enable tethering like in mobiles.
? Can also share my Speedify.

Cons

? Just too useful, wish it just could be embedded in my windows networking centre.
? File transfer still needs some work.

Summary

Connectify Hotspot is a must-use software if you think of sharing your 3g/4g/Wifi/LAN through your PC. It offers blazing fast speed and great user interface. It is also perfectly designed to be used along with other great Connectify Softwares like Dispatch and Speedify. Overall a bundle of satisfaction.

"Best Hotspot I've Ever Tried!"

June 29, 2015

 |  Version: Connectify Hotspot 2015.0.5.34877

Pros

Fast and easy! Plus its a way cheaper cost than buying a router and its a lot more easy to install. I have been using this for a long while and it has yet to disappoint! I haven't downloaded another sevice yet because I don't any other can compare. I like that they've added a MAX to it where you can extend your wifi point to other devices. I use it for my ipod and my cell and it works perfectly fine!

Cons

My only con is that it disconnects randomly, but this may be due to the device I use and whatever chip is inside of it.

Summary

All in all, Connectify is amazing!
