ASProxy: Android Proxy App

Android proxy apps are probably the fastest growing kind in the android app scene. It seems weird that Google has not yet incorporated proxy settings into the official android releases. Nevertheless, given the hacker friendly nature of Android, some developers have come out with solutions for this. I have written earlier about proxy solutions for android. I came across this one quite some time back. However, I've had a terrible amount of work at hand and did not find time to update the blog until today!

This one isn't too hard to configure. To make it easier for you guys, I am attaching snapshots here to give you a brief idea about what ASProxy is capable of.

I've tested this in a proxy network and it works just fine. However, the thing is, the network where I tested it did not have authentication enforcements. So if anyone out there could test ASProxy in a username/password enable proxy network, it would help all of us! Installation is very straight-forward. Just install the apk and run the app. You'll see the screens that are shown below. Alright. No more dilly-dallying. Check out the snapshots below!





So as you can see, all you have to do it go to options and enter the proxy details. Then hit the big pink button to start up the proxy app and voila! What's great about this app is that it's not just a browser proxy app. You can use other apps such as gtalk, market etc. Such a feature is not available in all android proxy apps out there. So this one is a cut above the rest.
Do comment if you guys face any problems. Let's see how best we can handle it!
