Handy Light is an iOS application written by Nick Lee; while branded as a "convenient flashlight for the iPhone", the application contains a hidden mode allowing users to use SOCKS proxying to tether their iPhone using a wireless connection. The application was initially approved for sale in the App Store and added on July 20, 2010, but was quickly removed by Apple the same day. Apple has similarly disallowed other programs made to allow unsupported network tethering on the iPhone platform to be offered in the App Store.
