This app enables a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth hot spot on your Android device without the need to root it. FoxFi offers great functionality and can come in handy on many occasions. It does have a couple of drawbacks. The free version of this app now comes with usage limit; to get around this you will need to spend around $7, and the app might not function properly on some devices with the latest Android version.
Following a quick and easy installation, Foxfi allows you to use your phone as a Wi-Fi hot spot. There are no extra options to set. All you have to do is download it and open it. This is possibly the easiest hot-spot utility on the market, and it works. It also features a Bluetooth mode, so you may use your device as a modem on a wireless network. Other features of this app include WPA2 password security and customizable network name. The app has a clean and readable user interface with one-touch activation. It is stable, fast, and light on the resource usage. It must be stated, however, that battery usage does increase while using your device as a hot spot. Foxfi does not require rooting unlike most other Wi-Fi tether applications. Because of contract restrictions some cellular providers have blocked this application from the store, but if it is available to you, it may save you money on a tethering service.
Even though you need to pay to use Foxfi to its full capabilities, it is still a very good application and a must-have for anyone who may need Internet access in areas where Wi-Fi is limited or unavailable.
