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).

How can you tell if an Android app is safe?
