iProxy — Poor Man’s iPhone Tethering

Torsten Curdt has released an open source variation on the idea behind the late great NetShare. Writes Curdt:

iProxy is not as convenient as the real tethering. The internet connection is a few clicks more away. But if you’ve got a developer certificate (or have a friend that has one) it certainly is cheaper than handing out the money to your favorite telco. Especially if you only need this connection only every now and then.

Only those with iPhone developer accounts can make use of it, alas, because for obvious reasons it can’t be distributed through the App Store.
