This app enables a Bluetooth or WiFi Hotspot on your phone without the need for a tether plan or rooting. You can tether any device to your phone’s existing data plan, including an iPad, Kindle, Nook, and even Xbox.
Quick and easy
FoxFi is a well-functioning and handy WiFi tether that doesn’t require rooting.
FoxFi has a simple interface and is intuitive to use. It’s convenient and offers you access to a connection without the need for you to root it to your device. There are no fancy features, but you can use your phone as a hotspot with one touch.
The app is safe, stable, speedy, and light. However, the battery usage does increase when you’re using a hotspot.
The free version of FoxFi is limited, but the premium version is affordable and highly functional. One drawback of this app is that it can be slow at times. It often says "limited connection" when logging on. You just have to give it a minute or so before you're good to go.
Where can you run this program?
You can run this program on AndroidOS 2.2 and up.
Is there a better alternative?
No. PdaNet serves a similar function for completely free, but it does require rooting.
FoxFi is a great app that is a must-download for anyone who needs internet access in areas where there’s limited or no WiFi access.
Should you download it?
Yes. Even though you have to pay to access the full capabilities, it’s worth it.
