4 August 2008 @ 7:31Nullriver’s app NetShare pulled from App Store again
Nullriver’s NetShare app, which allows users to use their iPhone’s cell ‘net connection with a laptop (also known as tethering), has once again been removed from the App Store. Last week, after about a day in the App Store directory, NetShare was removed without any notice from Apple. Then on August 1 it mysteriously reappeared in the App Store. Today, NetShare has again been de-listed from the App Store directory.
Much of speculation about NetShare’s removal from the App Store revolves around the fact that NetShare would allow iPhone users to tether their laptop to the iPhone without paying extra (about $30/month) for AT&T’s tethering data plan.
In my opinion, if AT&T is calling the iPhone data plan “unlimited”, then the way in which that data plan is used should be up to the subscriber. Otherwise, the data plan should be called “limited unlimited”.
