    "Amazing and well worth $7 bucks!"

    March 23, 2014  |   By Danny3xd

    Version: FoxFi 1.32

    Pros

    Works and works well.

    Cons

    Little slow signing on at times. It will say "limited connection" (no internet) But just have to give it a minute.

    Not a deal breaker, at all.

    Summary

    Bar none, this is my all time favorite app. I use it daily and it never fails. Great back up for rare occasions when the power or cable goes out too. During a black, the whole famdamily sat around my laptop watching netflix until the power came back on. $7 worth of insurance against having to actually talk to these people! Well worth it at dozens of times the price.

    Wut? you never met these people.

    "Deceptive advertising."

    December 31, 2013  |   By Ducati_Fan

    Version: FoxFi 1.32

    Pros

    Simple interface. No rooting.

    Cons

    The device requires its own security certificate... how am I supposed to know if I can trust the publisher? The free version is a complete waste of time... either pay for the full version right from the get-go, or don't even bother. The "use limit" on the free version is so low as to be literally useless.

    This device works by opening a VPN connection through the company's servers using your data connection. This means they funnel all of your data traffic through their own servers... which means they can snoop as they please.

    Summary

    Free version is useless. Full version requires placing complete trust in a company I know nothing about. None of this is advertised... you don't find out until you install it and the Android OS starts pinging you for permission to perform all these actions. They are practicing unethical advertising, and their utility is a security risk. I'll pass, thank you.

    "Everything I had hoped for!"

    June 21, 2012  |   By repairman1103

    Version: FoxFi 1.32

    Pros

    Works great, user interface is very simple. I'm actually on it right now. Very seriously thinking of getting rid of my home internet now. Have had three devices on it at once with good speed on my Verizon RAZR max. Have been using easytether for a couple years now and this is much better with the ability of being wireless and multiple users.

    Cons

    Have used it nearly everyday for about a week and can't really find anything wrong......so far.

    "Solves my data issue"

    March 6, 2012  |   By zoomie837068

    Version: FoxFi 1.32

    Pros

    Works most everytime I try. When it doesn't, cycling hot spot off and back on seems to fix the issue.

    Cons

    Appears to only work on 3G network on Sprint. WIMAX 4G is strong here, but hotspot seems to only work on 3G network.

    Summary

    Had a broadband modem with another provider. When I relocated to DFW area, that data solution wouldn't work unless i changed plans. FoxFi works well and without rooting on my "unlimited" data plan.
