Default Connect via reverse tethering

Hello,

Once in a while I'm in a location with no WiFi connection. But my Android device can connect to the Internet via reverse tethering with a computer that has Internet connection. This is great to use the browser, instant messaging, e-mail, and many other things.

Although there are some so-called reverse tethering apps in Google Play, the only method I found that works 100% of the time is this one from the XDA Developers forum.

However, not all apps connect to the Internet through this method, or have limited functionality, because they check for a WiFi or a cell network (3G/2G) connection, and if they don't find one then they don't connect.

It seems that Synthesis has this limitation, because it won't perform a sync when my device is connected via reverse tethering. It returns "Server not found. Check URL".

Any chance of adding to Synthesis the capability of syncing via reverse tether connection?

Thanks a lot,

Michael
