iTether Reincarnates as HMTL5 App

Reports of iTether making a reappearance within the web marketplace has been confirmed as true, and will now be available in the form of an HTML5 web-app.

Tether fans may remember the short-lived success of the iTether application, and the App Store debacle of being permitted then rejected from the virtual Apple-based premises last November. However, the app has gone a clever transformation and donned an HTML5 disguise - which is now available for download.

The application was pulled from the App Store shortly after making its entrance, but the company decided to rethink their strategy and in order to overcome this Apple-shaped obstacle, created an HTML5 version of the app, allowing non App Store users to begin the iPhone tethering process.

CEO of Tether, Tim Burke, gave his thoughts on the matter: "It was unfortunate that Apple decided to remove our application, only 20 hours after we launched. However, this caused us to innovate. Our underlying patent-pending technology behind Tether for iPhone is unlike anything on the market."

Available for worldwide use, the beauty behind this revamp means iPhone users won't need to pay any additional costs for tethering support from mobile operators. Don't we all love a happy ending?
