iTether returns to iOS devices in the form of HTML5
The team over at Tether has been working on a way around this caveat. The solution? Cut out Apple’s approval altogether. They have come up with a new solution that utilizes the HTML5 support already built into Safari over an Ad-Hoc wireless network to tether the devices together without the need for a jailbreak nor an app.
The original iTether app was originally a one time fee of $14.99, but considering most tethering service through a wireless carrier run between $10-$20 a month, Tether.com’s new price of $30 a year fee is still very reasonable. The new version also operates wireless and encrypts the data, which adds value to the service.
The process is quite simple as well. You just need to sign up for the service at Tether.com and download the Tether app to your PC or Mac. From there you can follow the instructions on how to setup an Ad-Hoc network. Once the network is setup on your computer, simply connect to that network from your phone and go to tether.com/web from Safari, enter your login information, and you’re all set.
Check out the video below where Patrick from Tether.com takes you through the process of setting up Tether.
