Description of the FoxFi App
PDANet now offers a direct wireless solution (free upgrade) for connecting tablets or computers to the internet. FoxFi still offers the legacy WiFi Hotspot option. It is still the best way to share phone Internet if the legacy FoxFi feature works on your phone. There is no limit to the number of devices that you can connect.
======(New WiFi Direct Hotspot =======
The new WiFi Direct feature in PDANet 5 lets you connect WiFi mode to computers and tablets. It will, however, require that you either install PDANet or configure proxy settings on the connected computers/tablets, which is not the case with the WiFi Hotspot. This feature is useful if WiFi Hotspot is not configured on or if WiFi Hotspot usage has not been allowed despite having an unlimited data plan.
