Five dollars all Android phone owners should spend right now

January 24, 2012

About a week ago I downloaded an app called ClockwordMod Tether (no root). It is the best $5 I’ve ever spent on the Android Market, by far. It’s built by the guys over at ClockworkMod. The same guys who built ROM Manager, which I use on my rooted NOOKcolor.

What this app does is provide users with and internet connection on your laptop through a USB cable over your wireless phone’s network for basically no additional cost (except the normal data charges you might incur for the data used). For someone like me, who has Sprint and an unlimited data plan, this is simply amazing. Even better, you don’t have to root your device to get this app.

When I first downloaded this last week I thought that it might be a pretty cool app which I would use from time to time in a pinch. It was worth the $5 to take a chance on it. However, this week I find myself in New York City for work. I’m staying in a hotel for the night, and though internet service is offered, it’s $12.95 a DAY to connect to their network. This is a ridiculous amount of money for web access.

However, with the ClockwordMOD Tether app combined with Sprint’s 4G unlimited service in New York I get internet access at more than serviceable speeds for as long as I want for only the $5 I’ve already spent and my normal phone bill that I already pay. It’s a no brainer. I’ve already saved $7.95 and I’ve only ever used this app once.

Anyway, now it’s time to go find some pizza. I am in New York after all.
