Update: Surprise! The app has been removed from the App Store.

Yet another iOS app developer has managed to sneak an app to unlock iPhone Internet Tethering into the App Store.

This time, the app is not a flashlight, but a colorful drawing app called “Little Artist Canvas“.

The tethering setup process is similar (and just as tedious as past solutions), but as AppAdvice notes, the $0.99 app could be worth it for those who want to circumvent paying official Internet Tethering carrier fees.

Speeds depend on your actual iPhone’s carrier data connection.

Results may vary, but we have independently verified with one iPhone that the app’s hidden tethering feature works. Apple will likely remove this app as soon as possible.
