Description

Proxoid is a proxy server on Android. It allow users of not rooted phones to use their phone's internet access from a computer.

It is based on a possibility offered by Google's SDK: it is possible to forward requests from your computer to your phone. In this case, they will be forwarded to Proxoid that will transmit them to Internet and give you the answer.

Comparing this method to the alternative approach - tethering on Android, one has to remember that it requires to be root on the phone, which is rarely the case. Also, by using a proxy it will be possible to filter request and replies (change headers, add caching, remove adds, ...).

Important notes:

- There is an option to activate on your phone.

- There should be done some configurations on your desktop to make it work together with the app installed on Android. Eventually, you will need to download and install some drivers on the computer. It depends of the OS you are using on the desktop. To see the instructions, visit the project's page about installation process: http://code.google.com/p/proxoid/wiki/installation
