DescriptionCNET - "Almost Tethering! ..it works.. carriers charge an extra $20 per month for traditional tethering. If you own an iPhone and a Wi-Fi only iPad, you may find CoBrowser the answer to a prayer."
A collaborative browsing experience for your iOS devices. The No#1 Top Paid in Japan and now available worldwide!
CoBrowser saves the webpage you are viewing on your iPhone and using bluetooth sends the stored images and text to a second device for viewing, with the advantage that the second device requires no internet connection!
i) CoBrowser requires at least one device to have Internet access, and both devices to have bluetooth.
ii) 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 :)
