The task of tethering devices to your phone has never been easier. Operating efficiently and quickly, Android-Wifi-Tether takes all the guesswork out of setting up a portable network.

Setup for Android-Wifi-Tether is very easy. The overall layout of this app is very good, too. It is easy to read and simple to use. After a quick browse through the main setup menu you are able to select the proper phone from a list of compatible devices. Click on a large Wi-Fi icon and you'll be up and running. Tablets and PCs should have no problem seeing your new Android hotspot, and setting up a connection is fairly straightforward. Android-Wifi-Tether is packed with security features such as Wi-Fi encryption and access control. This software also offers some other great features that enable users to fine-tune their power output, change LAN settings and customize notifications. There are some minor drawbacks, however. Rooting of your device is required for this particular software to work, and compatibility seems restricted to the more popular devices.

Android-Wifi-Tether is simple enough for the beginner and feature-filled for the advanced user. It is particularly useful for users who do a lot of travelling in areas where Wi-Fi is limited.
