Default Need HotSpot App

I have a stock Verizon Galaxy S3 (no root) and would like your recommendation for a hotspot app that will work with my ICS OS and hopefully will work with the future upgrade to JB.

I had FoxFi onstalled but it does not seem to work well since upgrade to ICS and latest update indicated there are some new limitations on the free version.

You'll need root access for most of the hotspot apps.

I am not saying that you are wrong but I am not anxious to root so I hope I get other responses.

If you don't want to root, I guess the option would be to pay for the tether fee.

michaelmaguire - Thanks I will give 1 click a try. What's the deal about not accepting updates. It sounds like I should wait until I get JB from Verizon before installing 1 click.
