    I NEVER join forums, and I usually NEVER pay for apps. But this dev changes everything! I will gladly pay for this app! Sure beats paying the ADDITIONAL fee to the carriers for using a service that your phone ALREADY provides. Why the hell are we paying so much for the phone if we can't use ALL of its capabilities? And WITHOUT ROOTING the phone?! This dev deserves our thanks (certainly has mine), and any donations we can muster. BEST APP AVAILABLE TODAY!!

    I am trying to use Foxfi. It works fine on my kindle fire, but when I try to use it on my MacBook, it will work for about 5 minutes, then starts just looking for network. It says I am connected, but I can't pull up any webpages? Any ideas?

    Not to hijack, but I downloaded this app and it works great until my phone screen turns off, then the app disconnects and disappears. Any idea what might be causing this? I'm new to smartphones and I have an idea it's an easy fix I'm missing.

    Okay, Why am I just finding out today about this app and all of its awesomeness. Used it today with my GS2 & my Gtab 10.1 and it was flawless. Easy install and great connection. Yet another reason why Android is my OS of choice. Now lets just hope Sprint isnt watching my account :-)

    So awesome...thank you dev for this. I came from the HTC Evo 4G and had such a hard time finding a wifi app that worked without rooting it of some form. But this is great...now I can actually take my Galaxy 10.1 places and use it without issues of finding decent hotspots.

    I wrote a thread a few days ago about not liking the Epic4GT as I had small issues with the inner workings...but I have changed my mind!!!

    Thank you FoxFi Software. How do I donate?

    How did you connect your Kindle fire to Foxfi. Through bluetooth or Wifi?

    Many thanks!

    Foxfi will work on htc phones - you will have to use it in bluetooth mode vs wifi mode - so if you are planning to use your phone as a hotspot - it will have to be in bluetooth - which means you will have to have bluetooth usb connector or bluetooth installed in the tab, laptop or pc

    I tried to show a friend FoxFi from the market and when we tried to look it up it was no longer there. I found a link to the app from another site and sent the page to my friend. When he tried to access it in the marketplace a note came up that said something along the lines of, "This application has been blocked by your wireless carrier."

    Does anyone know if this app will still be supported or how to get in touch with the developer? I tried to find the developer's website when it was still on the market but there was none and it would only take me to the application description.

    Sprint blocked it almost right off the bat. I had to go directly to the website and found a download link there - not the one that just takes you to the google play site.

    Sprint motorola photon / acer iconia tab a500 working fine.

    Mine downloads just fine on sprint, over the network. It doesn't show up in market results, just google it or use this play store link.....

    I have been using FoxFi for several months. Has been an awesome app and worked well. Now, all of the sudden it has stopped working. Not sure why?? The wifi connects to my Prime tablet & Laptop but NO internet connection. I can't figure this out. I have tried to find anything in my settings but nothing that I'm aware of has changed. Any Suggestions?

    I've been running FoxFi for a while but today the sprint hotspot activation icon came on as well as the foxfi one in the status bar ((o)). has anyone else seen this and are they (sprint) now charging for it?
