"Highly Recommend - Dependable, easy, and inexpensive"

February 08, 2016  |  By simplyjacob

2016-02-08 07:01:57  |  By simplyjacob

 |  Version: Connectify Hotspot 2016.0.0.36433

Pros

- Does what it says it will do - turns my computer into a router
- Great for when you only have an Ethernet connection and you need to access wifi on your other devices
- Easy to use

Cons

Every once in a while I need to stop the hotspot and start it again, but that's really not much of an issue. Very few cons.

Summary

I've had Connectify for over a year now and I'm glad I found it. They've been growing a lot even in the time I've been using it, so it's likely they'll be continuing to improve going forward. Check out www.connectify.me for more info.

"Great useful tool"

February 08, 2016  |  By jjdanhof

2016-02-08 02:20:05  |  By jjdanhof

 |  Version: Connectify Hotspot 2016.0.0.36433

Pros

Connectify allows me to connect multiple devices to my laptop's internet connection. I've been in situations multiple times where I only had internet on the laptop and wanted to connect my phone/tablet. Now I can do that by spreading the laptops internet as a wifi! Even when the laptop is also connected to wifi.

Cons

Haven't found any yet

"Best Hotspot!!!"

January 20, 2016  |  By Alaiya!!

2016-01-20 15:43:20  |  By Alaiya!!

 |  Version: Connectify Hotspot 2016.0.0.36433

Pros

Easy to install, use and setup. Your Hotspot can be up and running in no time. Works well with Windows 10.

Cons

I have not found any Cons yet.

Summary

Connectify is the best hotspot program I have found. Being deployed and staying where I am only allowed one device connected to the net at a time, this program works great. I connect my laptop to the one connection, open Connectify and start the hotspot. Now I have enough connections to allow all my devices on the net at the same time. I would recommend this program.
