Can I use my iPhone as a modem with NetShare?

Yes. Actually, no. Oh, okay then, yeah ... but no. What are we talking about? NetShare, the £6 App Store ex-download that's confused many an iPhone owner this past week.

NetShare appeared on Apple's App Store last Thursday. It granted iPhiles the ability to turn the God phone into a modem, wirelessly tethered to a notebook (OK, a MacBook) - thus allowing it to do what pretty much every other Godless phone can do already.

And then, 20 minutes later, NetShare disappeared from App Store. The hand of God? Well, it was Apple that took it down.

Then, just a couple of hours later, and without explanation, NetShare was back online for purchase. Only not readily - searching for "NetShare" on App Store would have got you nowhere. No, you needed a find a special link to the NetShare download on App Store.
