Its really a nice concpet which is very very useful when you are college campus or in a mall or in a market.
I am on the way to explore it more as I have Vista in my system so can't deploy it. And having Android 2.1 so can't use android version too.
I find it useful at 2 places at least.
One is at public places or internet cafe or hotels or airports. They charge more bucks for isngle connection. Now I can share that connection with others and can either reduce the cost of surfing the internet or can earn few bucks by selling my wi-fi hot spot
Second is in college lab. Suppose i have the access to wi-fi routerand Its private, should not be shared with others. What I can do is, I can connect my laptop or desktop or mobile phone with that wi-fi router and then I can tell my other friends (who don't have permission to access internet) to connect to the internet through my latop (which serves as wi-fi router now )
Here is its official website and Connectify for android version is still in beta phase so we can't download yet.
I found Scannify good for mobile to share files, play musics, use ftp, internet etc through that application. It costs 44 INR approx.
