Open Garden shares your Internet connection with your laptop, tablet or phone. No root access is required.
To install the app on your laptop or for AT&T users looking for the APK, go to:
It requires bluetooth and to be installed on all devices, such as your Android phone, laptop or tablet. Once installed devices automatically connect.
Your laptop or Android tablet can now access mobile Internet coming from your phone anywhere they have no Wi-Fi.
No buttons to press and nothing to configure, everything is done automatically once the app is installed on all devices.
When more devices running Open Garden are nearby, they automatically interconnect to create a peer-to-peer mesh network.
To detect nearby peers, we use location services. That includes GPS, if no other location service is available and functioning.
Connections can also be initiated manually using NFC - just tap the devices together!
The Open Garden app is completely free.
If you are having trouble downloading the app from Google Play, the APK is available from our website: https://opengarden.com
Open Garden works like a mobile hotspot and provides you with the same benefits as tethering applications.
It is comparable to PDA Net or EasyTether but doesn't require the use of a USB cable. It works without root like FoxFi, but doesn't limit your usage if you don't pay. And unlike Wifi Tether or Barnacle no root access is required.
Open Garden is a wireless mesh networking application that turns any of your device into a portable hotspot.
When installed on your laptop and your Android phone Open Garden can let you use from your computer softwares like Skype, any mail client or browser and let you access Internet on the go as if you were at home.
