If you are a businessman or woman, then this is an app that you need to have on your phone.  It turns your phone into a portable modem so that you can plug your computer into it and get internet wherever your phone gets service.   This is the perfect way to do business while you are out on the road traveling from place to place.  As long as someone else is driving, these trips no longer need to be a sunk cost as you can now do your work on the go.  The internet isn’t super fast but it is more than enough for you to be able to send some emails and check a few important online documents.  The only main concern that I had with this app is that it is kind of a pain to download and make work on your computer.  The instructions on the app are a little bit confusing and you may have to install the software on your computer a couple of different times in order to make it work correctly.  Don’t give up the first time, because this app is definitely worth having.

This app has been given a rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars and is a must have on your phone if you frequently need to use your computer for business.  The app is also completely free to download off of the market.
