    Man, you all should know by now that unless your data plan includes mobile hotspot, downloading a hotspot app is totally worthless, period. Carriers are smart enough to know when their customers are using hotspot applications to turn their phones into wireless access points. There has yet to be an actual app developer to make a true hotspot app to get around a carrier's tethering check provision. Until that happens, things will remain the same, especially when it comes to a software update!

    Michael Khoury


    Used to be great, now non functional. Any attempt to set up hotspot says failed to save and failed to start like it just doesn't work at all. Maybe because I updated from Android 7 to Android 8? This app worked fine as recently as a few months ago, so I'm not sure what happened.

  3. M Yussuf-avatar

    Does not work, unable to set up. Phone has hotspot, just needed to see who connects to it which for some reason is unavailable on this phone.

    Amazing! Love it, works perfectly on ZTE grand x 4 Edit: now i know why zte got booted from country. I got around the hotspot on that. On LG fortune 2 no such luck.

  5. Max Paine-avatar

    Don't download it's trash, program is unusable. Doesn't turn on wifi hotspot capability. But it's probably due to compatibility issues with my phone and the app. But still the developer's fault and issues should have been addressed as of this current update. Don't use.

    Its working good.. no issue at all But my suggestion is to add a button(switch) widget as shortcut, it must be great.

    Rubbish app. Can't get past the first page without it trying to sell me things.

    Very sad. Doesn't work anymore. Used to love this app back when I had my Samsung Note7. It was super handy to have a shortcut to turn on and off hotspot in the home page. Now it no longer works with my Note 10+ on Android 9 (Pie). I've updated the app to the latest version to no avail. I'm giving it some stars for the years that I was able to use it. Please fix the app to work with latest Samsung phones. Would happily give 5 stars if it is working.

    Works great for years now. My phone is capable of casting a Hotspot but my carrier removed the option to cast one through their software. I love it!

  14. Elizabeth Harmon-avatar

    I used to use Foxfi/PDAnet for my hotspot needs. Worked like a charm on my phones until recently when I got a Samsung Galaxy S7. Now it's not working and I'm trying to find a new app that will work. Portable Wi-fi hotspot has failed me in my mission to find a new hotspot work around. I'm guessing Verizon has finally found a way to stop the free hotspot apps floating around. Sucks that this app did not work like I wanted and needed. :(

  15. YayaVanVaya-avatar



    Hotspot enabled on verizon unlimited data plan, set up all a go, works fine, runs all variety of devices, but there's no toggle or shortcut in samsung s7 for some inexplicable reason. Have to go into settings, etc., which is not convenient. Tried this app but it can't connect/doesn't recognize my credentials so I uninstalled. Don't feel too bad, it's a fate shared with other toggles I've tried so far. Still looking.

    This app would not allow me to open. I had it installed once before and it worked perfectly, I'm not sure what's wrong, but it just says "unable to turn on portable hotspot"! Very disappointed!!! I even tried uninstling and reinstalling twice.

    At first when I had downloaded it I was thinking I could use it for my work when I am on the bus driving home. I would set up the wifi and i would put in a password and then I pressed the wifi button and it said the wifi was on but when I looked in my wifi settings it wasnt there. So I tried it without a password and it still didnt work. The strange thing is that it turned my wifi off. I would download this again if it worked. So try to fix it please

    This was the first hotspot I downloaded today...I've had others in the path...this is just perfected...if anyone has a problem with this hotspot..it's them not the app...it's really easy to install easy to setup..easy to run...so if anyone has a problem with this app..it's them not the app...I have cricket...they won't shut your phone down..if they do it's because you don't have unlimited data usage like I do...there's some hotspots that eat up your data...I've checked my data usage..this app doesn't use much..those who are crabbing about the apps or can't see their hotspot they created...needs themselfs go back to school..even my 9mth old granddaughter could use this app without a problem. It's just that easy...easy to install easy to setup easy to run...so if your haven problems with this app...it's YOU not the app...

    Me and my home buds wanted to play bombsquad , we have a smart tv but couldn't find the wifi hotspot ??? I don't know why... But how I knew my tv had wifi hotspot was when I started using ShareIt , coz shareit uses wifi hotspot,... We decided to use my phone as the screen and tree players , my cousin was like "check if there isn't a app that can help us" and yes for sure you this app helped us , all thanks to the developer ✌✌✌

    Using it on a Lollipop (V4.4.2) and it does not turn on my hotspot. The hotspot ifs configured and it says it is on, but when I got to my settings, the hotspot is still off. When it is on there is an icon in my menu across the top, but not there when I use this app. :(

    Unfortunately I have to say that the developers of this system have failed my expectations and disappointed me as this app does not function as it says it should and i even tried to find wifi by entering name however it was not there, Freinds don't fall into this lie. thanks
