Klink - Tether

Klink - Tether


Klink is a utility by Faveset LLC for connecting a PC or Mac to your Android device over USB. It focuses on simplicity and gets the job done with a few taps. Yet, it is one of the fastest of its kind. Power users also won't feel left out, as it has many mobile-specific settings that don't exist anywhere else.

Installation is simple like with EasyTether or PdaNet, and the in-app setup guide walks you through everything in less than 10 minutes.

The original version has over 20,000 paid users and an average Market rating above 4.3, so everything is well-tested, but please don't hesitate to email and ask questions!

NOTE: Please try the free demo version ("Klink - Tether Demo" on the market) to test compatibility before buying. Klink should work with every device out there, so don't hesitate to contact support if you need help. The demo can be upgraded via the market without any further configuration on your computer.

FEATURES:

- Supports Windows (XP/Vista/7/8/32-bit/64-bit), Mac OS X 10.5 (or later), and Ubuntu Linux (32-bit/64-bit).
* Ubuntu binaries can be used with other Linux distributions (also tested with Fedora and Arch).

- This is only for USB connections to a PC or Mac. Tablets are not supported!

- Does not require a rooted device

- It has a unique Mimic Mobile Device mode that lets you browse mobile pages as the device of your choosing to conserve data. Moreover, this mode can also block common background data activity to avoid excessive data usage.

- Written in C (NOT Java) for efficiency, speed, and lower power consumption.
* Is fast and capable of handling 4g speeds: can reach 30mbps in real-world conditions on capable devices.

NOTE TO PURCHASERS OF THE ORIGINAL KLINK: Your purchase is still valid, and it is NOT necessary to buy this version. Please visit the "Download" page at www.faveset.com to download the original version of Klink, or email support if you have questions.

USAGE:

After installing and running Klink, please tap "Set up your Computer" and follow the instructions. Klink requires the installation of a small companion program on your PC or Mac, so following the step-by-step guide is suggested.

Great support from dev The demo worked good so I purchased this over the competitor - PDANET. That was over three years ago. I recently had a problem with Klink that looks like it was on my end (not Klink). I requested help from the dev and received a prompt reply and very through help to resolve my problem - kudos to the dev! I don't have a lot of probs with apps in general but this has been the best support experience on the Play Store I have had that comes to mind. Kevin - Thanks for your help! You get 5 stars in my ratings.

The Real Deal First off a big Thank You to the developer for a well made working app. After the 5.0.2 android update everyone has had tethering broken. Lucky to find this app, It performs well beyond what I expected, 5 min. to set up and as long as you have an unlimited data plan as I do, you can enjoy USB tethering (without a cap) from you phone to your pc or Mac. This app is well worth buying, best money ever spent on the play store.
