Apple’s built-in tethering feature requires the consent of your carrier, and if you’re on a network like AT&T, you’ll have to purchase a separate tethering plan to share your 3G/4G connection with your Mac or PC. FlashArmyKnife, a new app by Eric Blase, has a hidden tethering feature that allows you to by pass carrier restrictions and share your iPhone or iPad’s 3G/4G connection.
There have been many apps with a hidden tethering feature that have snuck into the App Store, and later taken down by Apple’s review team. So grab this one as soon as you can.

The app costs $1.99 and along with the hidden tethering feature also has:
- Flashlight with Adjustable brightness
- Built-In web browser with bookmarks
- Fully functional trigonometry calculator
- Satellite view map
- Currency Converter
- Battery Indicator
