Another positive thing is that, it is fully compatible with all major flavors of the Android available namely: Froyo (Android 2.2), Gingerbread (Android 2.3) or Honeycomb (Android 3.0). There is a lite version of the application available for free, but that is significantly limited in the functionality as mentioned by the developer:

EasyTether Lite will block secure (https://, TCP port 443) sites (such as gmail, facebook, amazon or ebay) and any UDP-based applications (including L2TP VPNs, most instant messagers and Xbox 360 / PS3 / Wii games) after some time. The paid/activated versions have no such limitations.
