    "This is the best tethering app I could find for android. I've been using it for years, and it has yet to fail me on an update. It works well both wired and wirelessly. Having a product key made it easy to transfer the app over when switching phones too."

    "Great solution! In an age where there is a constant need to be connected to the web, this product offers the ability to take your hotspot and go. On the downside, you have to be a XFinity costumer and I do not believe this service is offered everywhere."

    "Hotspot apps are not something that I really use all that often, but with almost 600000 downloads and a user review of over 4 stars leads me to believe that this is more than sufficient as a hotspot app. I might give it a try in the future if I all of a sudden feel that need to use other people wifi.

    "I needed to find a good hotspot app and found WiFi Master Key. This app has access to many wifi hotspots and I find that convenient and interesting. I am a little worried about security though. I recommend this app for anyone interested in finding hotspots, but use it with caution considering the security risk. "

    "I'm not certain why you need an app for that. My phone already scans for WiFi networks around me. It baffles the mind that someone would download an app that provides a function that is already native to their phone. Maybe if it showed hidden networks you could only see with the app then there might be a point to downloading this app."
