[App] Open Garden
Open Garden interconnects devices to form a wireless peer-to-peer mesh network that provides Internet access.
Your laptop can now access mobile Internet coming from your phone anywhere it has no Wi-Fi. Like tethering, but with no buttons to press and nothing to configure.
When more devices running Open Garden are nearby, they all connect into a mesh network.
The Open Garden app is completely free.
This app works like a charm for my Android RAZR and Asus Transformer. Just turn on the Bluetooth of both devices and they automatically connected. The only cons are its only works with Firefox, and the tablet lost connection once the phone screen is off. I wish the next update will fix the bugs.
Hi, Firstly want to say that overall, I love this app and the whole open garden concept, now here is the big BUT. Recently applied the update to both my phone Android 2.1 and my Transformer prime (what ever the most recent AoS is). since the update the transformer can’t connect to any device, and also I’ve encountered a major bug on my phone. details: Recent update on AOS 2.1, would not communicate with the Transformer Prime, later after several attempts the Android.phone.app started to fail. First time this happened because I don’t install to many apps. Uninstalled app problem didn’t resolve so I continued to a user data wipe, phone functioned well so I reinstalled open garden first, within a short period of time the phone started to to experience the same issues all over again, uninstalled no resolution, data wiped, problem resolved. I really hope you guys can get this fixed because this app is actually one of the most useful that I’ve come across that makes the tablets some thing more than a glorified game console.
I initially installed version 1.1. I couldn’t get that working until I installed 1.1.1. Works great. I’m using a galaxy nexus and windows 7 laptop. After reading some other reviews I found the best way for me to connect my pc to the internet via open garden is to 1) turn on bluetooth on my computer, 2) start open garden on my phone and that’s it – it connects relatively fast after that – nothing else to do on my end. One thing I have to do for connecting at later dates is to completely exit open garden on the pc side. Otherwise I get no working connection the next time I try to connect. One more note – I don’t lose the connection when my phone screen turns off.
Just got a firmware update for my transformer prime and now it works. Sweet App. The only thing separating it from a 5 star rating is some way to secure the network
Motorola ATRIX and this works great… It cost $0..ForEver!! U dont pay for anything and its very very simple.. If u can bluetooth a song from one phone to another then you already know how to set this up. And now at my house I never use my laptop cause of no internet any place close. But now i have fast internet on my laptop at home by simply turning on this app on my phone!!! THANKS WHO CAME UP WITH IT… THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!!!! ¡!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Very reactive team. Thanks Open Garden.
