Although these install instructs worked perfectly and when enabled the app does connect my mac and iphone thru wifi, it is not provide an IP address. No matter what I try I continue to get "self-assisigned" IP address from the established network and of course cannot connect to the internet without one. Running on iphone 3.0.1. No where I can find any min sys req so no idea if it is not working due to my not being on 3.1.2 or something else. Too bad I had to spend $10 just to find out it doesn't work... does any website or documentation exist for this app?

It seems it only works for 3.1+. I wonder if it runs on IOS 4! People are using this software to share the iphone's internet with iPad, which is great! I was worried about the need to have two 3G plans, one for iPhone and another for iPad. I live in Brazil and an unlimited plan here costs about $75. Imagine $150 to get internet for both my devices! I already access internet at home through tethering, now I can do the same with iPad!.
