Apple probably isn’t going to be too happy about this, but it turns out that Handy Light, a new flashlight app that was approved for the App Store, has an unofficial SOCKS proxy tethering feature built in, which allows this simple flashlight app to offer tethering on your iPhone. The app’s description doesn’t mention anything about such a feature, but a video has been posted online to show how it works. Handy Light was priced at $0.99 on the App Store before the plug was pulled (for obvious reasons). While Apple allows developers to include hidden features (dubbed Easter eggs), they must be declared when apps are submitted for approval, so it can be safely assumed that this feature wasn’t mentioned. Handy Light actually managed to reach the #2 position in the top paid apps listings before it was pulled. Check out a video of it in action after the jump.
