New HTML5 app allows tethering to iPhone

 

A new HTML5 app by Tether allows users to wirelessly connect their iPhone to a laptop to enable 3G Internet access.

Several months ago, Tether introduced 3G tethering for the iPhone through the Apple App Store.

"It was clear from our initial application iTether, there was enormous demand within the iPhone ecosystem," said Tether CEO Tim Burke. "It was unfortunate that Apple decided to remove our application, only 20 hours after we launched. However, this caused us to innovate. Our underlying patent-pending technology for Tether for iPhone is unlike anything on the market."
