No, I didn't download it since I have an official tethering plan. It has been confirmed by others to work, though. No guarantees it will continue to work on new firmware versions, but it's only $2.

There's ANOTHER confirmed App Store offering with a hidden tethering feature..."BSOD Reaction Time".

http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1345764

The article also mentions yet ANOTHER tethering app, but no one can seem to get it to work...

It's been a couple years since HandyLight was pulled for offering hidden tethering, but now THREE tethering apps?

Is Apple drunk?

I was going to make a thread on both of these :p

Appears I've been beaten lol. The BSOD Reaction Time hidden tether I can't get to work, it just sits at looking for network? But the Flash Army Knife app works right now (I'm tethering to my MBP).

Suppose all of these apps will become redundant when this phone finally becomes jailbroken!

It allows you to use your phone's data/internet connection on another device. If you pay for the service from your carrier, it's as simple as toggling an on switch. An app like this one requires multiple steps, but there are no monthly charges. There are jailbreak apps that serve the same purpose but are much simpler, but this is the best option for those who are stock and don't want to pay for tethering. You'd want to use it in moderation to avoid flagging your account.
