    No need for an app. Assuming you have a data plan for your phone, you need to do the following:

    (1) Settings>Wireless and Networks>Mobile Networks>Use Packet Data

    AND

    (2) Under Wireless and Networks there is the option for Tethering. Tap it and then enable Mobile AP.

    You should then be able to connect your laptop to the phone via wireless and in that way access your phone's data connection on your laptop.

    Hope this helps.
