Editors' Review

Allowing you to transmit Web-based data and content via Bluetooth, PdaNet for Android allows your PC to connect to the Internet using both the phone's standard radio and its Bluetooth radio. PdaNet for Android is free to try but the full version will cost you $23.95.

The version of the app discussed here is the one paired with a 64-bit Windows machine. When it comes to the interface, access to the PdaNet for Android app is almost instantaneous. You are just given two options, to enable USB tether or to enable Bluetooth DUN. Each option, when chosen, provides a step-by-step guide to help you complete the required setups. Once done, we tried testing the connection speed. While there was a slight reduction in overall data transfer speed, the amount is actually negligible enough for us to disregard this drawback. What's very important when it comes to this app is that it allows a wireless Internet connection in which only our Windows machine and phone are able to communicate, unlike Wi-Fi.

PdaNet for Android is a cheap and very handy way of providing an Internet connection to any PC. It may require you to have an additional Bluetooth radio accessory if you are using a desktop PC, but at least your wireless connection is as secure as it should be.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of PdaNet for Android (64-bit Windows Installer).

    "Works Fantastically"

    July 29, 2013   |   By JPFuji

    Version: PdaNet for Android (64-bit Windows Installer) 3.00

    Pros

    Great Speeds particularly with 4G. I am able to get faster speeds sometimes than wifi when using in conjunction with my laptop or Nexus 7. Relatively easy to use.

    Cons

    Made me set a security password for my phone which I probably should have done anyway but I was getting by without.

    Summary

    I have used for a couple of years. There was a rough patch about a year ago where Google/Verizon prevented them from setting up as a wifi hotspot but that was corrected and it works great now. Very convenient to have a secure wifi hotspot when sitting in a restaurant with my tablet or in an airport with my laptop. My reason to hold on to my Verizon unlimited plan for life.

    "I love it. No problem using it."

    March 11, 2013   |   By Tomt966

    Version: PdaNet for Android (64-bit Windows Installer) 3.00

    Pros

    I still have unlimited data on my RAZR Maxx so I use it a lot rather than paying for data on my home line.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    "Easiest and Quickest"

    May 05, 2011   |   By sgvmikela

    Version: PdaNet for Android (64-bit Windows Installer) 3.00

    Pros

    Simple to use. Love the SMS Agent!

    Cons

    Sometimes it can lock up your phone so it is not recognized by your computer.

    Summary

    This is overall a great product. It saved my behind when having to do homework from an area without wifi. Most cellular companies are just preventing you to tether your phone simply so they can make more money. Those little dongle thingys are EXPENSIVE!

    All in all I find the price is beautiful, PLUS, when I switch to my new 4G Android product and ditch my 3G Android Phone, I'll be in HEAVEN!!!

    EVERY TIME June Fabrics updates their software, you don't have to pay for the update... it's free!
