New app enables sharing of mobile Web access

  • A new smartphone app has been developed to enable users to share mobile Internet access for free with other people nearby who have the same app.

    The Open Garden app creates a mesh network that allows people connected to it to relay it to other users.

    Developers said the app could also be useful for travellers seeking to avoid costly roaming charges.

    The app is available for Android devices, Windows and Mac.
