tether Blu Premium Edition and tether Blu Free Edition

Bluetooth tether application for Android G1

This simple application allows one to tether their android phone with their PC over bluetooth. The free edition only allows you to tether your wifi internet signal to your computer. The premium edition will tether both your wifi internet signal and your cell data internet signal. The way this app works is that it connects your phone to your computer over a wireless bluetooth connection. The app then forwards internet data from the phone to your computer so that your computer can have an internet connection using the phone's internet connection, the free edition only works when you have an internet connection from a wifi connection.
