AirMobs is an experimental Android app that enables people to share their network access and gain credits for future use.

Airmobs is a community-based hotspot app that has created an on-demand wi-fi tethering market. It provides network connectivity if your device has no connection or roaming costs are too high, by allowing for the use of someone else's data plan. This will let users internet access even when their service provider is out of network coverage.

The person who provides the network access will gain credit points that can be used when they aren't connected. The incentive is that by sharing your data connection, you will get data in return at another time, creating a dedicated network of users.
