Version 5.10 has major changes, MUST read below before updating. 

1. Windows side also need updating from http://pdanet.co/install
2. Original WiFi Hotspot feature remains in the separate FoxFi app if you still need it, just install from Play Store. You can also find previous (4.19) version of PdaNet+ at http://pdanet.co/install/old
3. New location permission required by Android due to WiFi scan API call. 

Please be aware that with no root access there are technical limitations of what an app can do. We try our best to offer the "most convenient solution possible" for sharing phone Internet but it may not be an "ideal" or "universal" solution (e.g. a normal WiFi Hotspot). It may not work for particular devices. 

=====WiFi Direct mode (new!) ====
PdaNet+ now comes with a completely new "WiFi Direct Hotspot" feature that works on all Android phones 4.1 or later. It allows you to connect computers and tablets to your phone using WiFi BUT it will require you to either install our client app or setup proxy depending on what device you are connecting to the phone. You can activate "WiFi Direct Hotspot" in PdaNet+ then tap the "Help!" button for detail instructions. 

*If your Windows computer does not see the hotspot during pairing please do two things: 1. Restart Hotspot on the phone. 
2. Click on "Show All WiFi Direct Hotspot". It will verify if your adapter supports 5Ghz.

====FoxFi/WiFi Hotspot Mode (the old) ====
The original WiFi Hotspot feature remains in the separate FoxFi app if you still need it. It has ceased to function on many newer phone models due to carrier updates. Even when it works, your hotspot usage may still be metered (see plan 2 below). WiFi Direct Hotspot could solve both issues. However the new feature is not meant to support game devices, TVs or TV streaming devices. 

=====USB Mode=====
USB mode works on all Android phones (except for some ZTE/Alcatel models). It allows connection from Windows or Mac. In addition, there is a "WiFi Share" feature that can further turn Windows into a WiFi Hotspot so that you share PdaNet Internet with other devices.

*If your phone is not recognized by your computer after connecting USB, please see http://pdanet.co/driver

=====Bluetooth Mode=====
You can use Bluetooth mode to connect Windows. Although WiFi Direct mode is preferred.

=====Do I need this software?=====
The PdaNet software has been around since the first Treo smart phone in 2003. With over 30 million downloads in total, it must be something that everyone needs, right? Well...it really depends on the kind of data plan you have for your phone. There are 4 kinds of data plans from most carriers:

1. Your data plan (limited or unlimited) does not allow you to turn on the mobile hotspot feature on the phone (it prompts you to call your carrier). 

2. Your data plan is unlimited and you can turn on mobile hotspot from your phone to use it. But hotspot usage is "metered" against a cap (say 5G/month). After that the speed will be throttled to a crawl. (FoxFi can't avoid this!)

3. Your data plan is unlimited, and you can turn on mobile hotspot from your phone with unlimited LTE usage and no throttling cap. This plan does NOT exist or not intended. But we have seen loopholes on some phone models to allow it.

4. You data plan is limited and it allows you to turn on mobile hotspot from your phone. The mobile hotspot usage goes under the same data plan limit.

If your plan falls under 1 or 2, you will need to use PdaNet+. If your plan belongs to 3 or 4 then PdaNet+ will not make any difference. If you are unsure what plan you have, it won't harm to always use PdaNet+. 

Free edition of PdaNet+ will have timed usage limit, otherwise it is same as full version.

Sprint and AT&T may not allow you to install our app from Play Store, please install the apk file directly from http://pdanet.co/install or install from the computer side.

    Terrible app. The developers need to fix this issue. Everytime I unselect the "Wifi Direct Hotspot" option to turn it off my phone automatically shuts off. I have the same issue with the "USB tether" option when I click and try turning it off. If I even try to press and turn on the "Connect to a PDAnet hotspot" option my phone will automatically shut off again. No app has ever done that to my phone. This app is unfortunately too good to be true. I really thought I found a great app for once.

    pdanet ios Could solve a real problem, not being able to share cell data, but the connection is just so unreliable and having to key in new and complex passwords every ten minutes, sometimes less, makes this a.....well back to checking for something else that is reliable. They also have some limits on the free version, but no way I'd pay till they work out the bugs.

    pdanet pc I remember a time I used this app/program and it worked great. So needing a tethering app again, I paid for this current version. Right off the bat I've had problems with constantly recurring disconnections. Looked around online, and saw complaints about this issue but didn't find any solutions. I really wanted to like this app but it's practically useless like this.

    pdanet iphone Good except one major issue: when I connect via USB to my computer and I get an MMS message (a picture) the connection drops for a second. This is a big enough problem to disconnect my VPN running on the computer. This is on my Verizon Wireless Pixel 2 XL. Android 10, latest updates, stock non-rooted. Interestingly, the Wi-Fi direct connection does not have this problem. However Wi-Fi direct is much slower for some reason than connecting via USB. Update: found the disconnect also happens when a phone call is received.

    pdanet windows This app is the most intuitive and responsive program on any platform. It gets your desktop ONline quickly and when you're ONline it is FAST! I've known about PDAnet+ for years and it just continues getting BETTER. I especially appreciate the Key that costs so little but keeps you ONline without interruption. Check it out!

    pdanet download Current version 5.22.1 run on a OnePlus 7 PRO and Windows 10 Desktop PC using USB Tether - keeps disconnecting 2-3 times a day. The "checkbox" next to USB Tether just unchecks itself (the check mark disappears) and the connection drops. It does not auto-reconnect, you have to connect manually by touching the USB checkbox to make the check mark reappear. WiFi Direct Hotspot is even worse - way many more disconnects like once an hour. Bluetooth is a joke - so slow it's unusable (not going to stream 4K movies, right?) and should be removed from the app. Another BUG is that T-Mobile once or twice a month can see it as mobile data, thus using up my 10GB of HotSpot Data for the month all in one day/night. Needs FIXED!

    pdanet pro apk You're gonna have to be really careful with this one. Not only did it drop out on me last night, it made it crash, reset, then the password I put in couldnt get me back in my phone and i had to reset it, losing everything on my phone. I was devastated. Plus using too much eventually tries to reconnect, then it crashes from using it too hard. It's going to have to get checked otherwise people will lose things this app. It's gutted me.

    pdanet full version The free version it worked for about 5 days before I received the DNS not verified reboot warning. After purchasing the app I now get the error every day. So I have to shut down all my programs to reboot. At this time I cant recommend this app until this issue is fixed. If you want more stars offer a resolve for the issue. No contact information on your website. FYI I prefigure USB tether.

    pdanet for android I have used Pda for a few years. Disconnects used to happen sometimes but not very often. Over the past year the disconnects have become more frequent to the extent of having to reconnect within a minute of making the last connection multiple times in a row. My longest connection period right now is about 15 minutes (yes, it IS the paid version of the app) but most of the time the connection is dropped in 5 minutes or less. This is the case on two different phones and using those phones on 5 different laptops ranging from Windows 8 on the oldest to Windows 10 on the newest (about one month old). What has actually caused me to write this review is that when I sent in a message to JuneFabrics for help on resolving the issue is that they say they will try and help resolve it and give me an answer but if they can't resolve it then they simply won't reply. Really? If you can't fix it then you'll just ignore the request and not reply at all? Btw... In the process of writing the above my connection dropped 3 times in a row. Connected and hit the edit button to add this part. Connection dropped again before I could hit submit.

    pdanet exe Update: Things were working fine for a few months...then the app kept force closing the USB function, or the app would crash every ten minutes for the last couple days. It's behaving again...the Crashing was occuring with the USB Tether becoming 'unchecked' while saying (forced closed)...This occurred regularly until I changed settings in the app from IPv4 to IPv6...internet connection is stable once again.

    I paid for the full version of this a while ago, and all throughout my college semesters I was able to do my homework from home, download games, watch YouTube etc. It worked perfectly. But recently it has refused to stay connected, I'm consistently getting a "reconnect failed" message. I got a new cord, but it didn't solve the problem. I thought it was my phone, but I see other reviews with people having the same (or a similar) problem. Holding out hope for an update to fix this.

  12. guest-avatar

    I paid for the full version. I wish I can give this a better review since when it works, it works wonderfully but frequently I get disconnected for no reason every two minutes. Sometimes, it occurs every half minute. It's impossible to work with when that happens. Bluetooth mode is much more consistent but the connection speed there is ridiculously slow! I'm thinking of trying a different tethering app since I could not find any way to resolve this including manual proxies, restarting, etc

    I've had the paid version of this app for over a year and a half now and it's worked perfectly until recently. I've done fresh installs, restart both my devices but PdaNet refuses to stay connected and it's driving me crazy. It frequently disconnects with the message "reconnect failed" and will only stay connected for a few minutes or seconds at a time. Please fix this ! A lot of people are having this issue and this is my only source of internet out in the woods. :(

    To this day this is the only app I have ever paid for. I was using foxfi before pdanet bought it. I gladly paid the 8 dollars for it as it saved me 20.00 a month that Verizon charges. And honestly as cheap as I am I would have paid 20.00 for it. There is no monthly fee and you can take it from phone to phone unless you switch to apple then you have to rebuy it. Would you guys look into finding a way to get this to work on an nvidia shield.

    App works great. Pay for the full version - no issues. If you live in an area where your phone gets good signal and LTE+ then you are good-to-go. Make sure to install all components of PdaNet+/FoxFi correctly. I did not install FoxFi and my PdaNet+ kept timing out/slow. Did not realize FoxFi was missing. The developers do not emphasize the importance of installing all required components.
