Hello Jolla Enthusiasts. As you may know, Tethering is an application that allows the users to use their phone as a hotspot, permitting everybody to share data over WiFi, by a private network shared via WiFi or Bluetooth.
From the user’s point of view, everything is very simple. Just fill in the network name, the pre-shared key and enable tethering. After the connection is disabled or the app is closed, the previous network settings will be resumed the next time when the app will be turned again, yet again.
Since it has been officially added to the Jolla store a while ago, installing it on your Jolla smartphone running Sailfish OS is easy. Just enter the Jolla store and install the application simply called Tethening.
For those who don’t know yet, Jolla is a project developed by former Nokia employees. The first Jolla smartphone is running on Sailfish OS, a modified Megoo Linux system, which is Android compatible, uses Wayland as the default display server , uses Nokia N9′s Maliit touchscreen keyboard and comes with interchangeable covers, allowing the users to easily switch them, in order to change the color/model of the phone and comes with impressive hardware specifications. Apps can be installed via the Jolla Store, which will provide both Jolla and Android apps, or via F-Droid, Yandex Store, Amazon App Store, Aptoide and 1Mobile Android Market.
