Description

CNET - "Almost Tethering! ..it works.. carriers charge an extra $20 per month for traditional tethering. If you own an iPhone and a Wi-Fi iPad, you may find CoBrowser the answer to a prayer."

CoBrowser.

A collaborative browsing experience for your iOS devices. The No#1 Top Paid in Japan and now available worldwide!

At a cafe, or in a meeting, or browsing the web, show your friends what you are looking at.

CoBrowser saves the webpage you are viewing on your iPhone and using bluetooth sends the stored images and text to a friends device for viewing, with the advantage that the second device requires no internet connection!

You see what they are seeing, they can show you what they are viewing. Browsing is better when enjoyed with a friend.

*Important Notes:

i) CoBrowser requires at least one device to have Internet access, and both devices to have bluetooth.

ii) CoBrowser does not technically enable tethering. iOS guidelines mean that when using 2 or more devices to achieve 'shared browsing', a non-internet enabled device (iPhone, iPod touch or iPad) cannot 'borrow' the data plan of a 3G enabled device (tethering).

Therefore it was required of us that to enable surfing the web on an iPad that doesn't have 3G, users need to click a confirm button on their primary 3G-enabled device to open links.

Through this simple method CoBrowser DOES allow for the webpages displayed on an internet-enabled device to be mirrored on a device without 2G/3G connectivity, with any changes on one display being reflected on the other.

Again the need for a confirm click to open links it is not a technical limitation of the app, but a requirement for our non- tethering method of sharing to be approved - so please vote accordingly.

Not tethering but the next best thing :)

Enjoy.

Works as Advertised! Next best thing to the real iPad 3G.

:
The application works perfectly over both 3G and WiFi. As long as both devices have Bluetooth enabled and one of devices has connectivity to the internet it works perfectly. I bought my iPad before the 3G version came out and as much as I would love to buy the 3G version I simply cannot afford to buy a new one. I just saw this app and gave it a spin and it is almost like I have a new iPad now. I used it for a couple of hours while sitting on the beach to catch up on the latest news. The great thing is I was able to do so without wearing my glasses.

Fantastic Job!!!!

Wow - get it before it gets pulled

:
This technically doesn't tether, but for intents and purposes it provides the same functionality, (well, it only allows web browsing so I suppose it isn't exactly the same functionality), so I can't believe this won't be pulled. The bottom line is that I don't need a separate data plan for my iPad. Nice work guys/gals.

5/5 stars

Don't listen to bad reviews

:
Having to confirm on your phone is a restriction put in place by apple. This app functions perfectly. Save your negative feedback for apple.
