"It worked for me"
Version: EasyTether Tablet 0.9.0
I have been using Easy Tether for years to get on the internet on my desktop computer and it has saved me thousands on internet bills since I have unlimited data on my cell phone. I recently got a tablet and now use Easy Tether on it too. I have the paid version which lets me go to https sites. It only cost $10. When I first installed it on the tablet I couldnt get online but I think I kept trying https sites and thats why it wasnt working. I contacted support to get a new activation code since I had got a new phone too and had to reinstall the app too.
One thing that surprised was that I was able to get on the internet on both my desktop and tablet at the same time with Easy Tether.
I have a Galaxy Tab 3 and the only complaint I have is that since I keep my mobile data and wifi turned off on the tablet, every time I go to a website it gives me a popup saying there is no connection. It will still go to websites using the Easy Tether bluetooth connection. I am sure I could find a way to stop it from telling me every time, but I dont really get on the internet that much on the tablet.
Its a great app if you dont want to pay for internet ever again and have unlimited data on your phone.I just fixed my "No Connection" popup problem. I also read that Easy Tether probably wont work on my tablet but it does. The way I got rid of the popups would also correct a problem that would cause Easy Tether to not work.

First of all Easy Tether might not work with KitKat Android version (unless they have corrected it already). One other reason Easy Tether might not work is because Apps that check the system to see if there is an Internet connection first (3G, 4G or Wi-Fi) might not recognize the Bluetooth connection as an internet connection and may have problems. That was why I was getting the "No Connection" pop-ups but it still connected. I solved this problem by turning on an old wireless router that isnt connected to the internet and connecting the tablet to it. Problem solved. Now the tablet thinks it has an internet connection. No more pop-ups and Apps that check for internet first will see that the Wi-Fi is on.
So now I can give this App 5 stars
