    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    The application changes the iPhone into an adhoc connection not a real access point like you would find in Starbucks or similar. The following link to another thread describes how to connect to adhoc networks. BUT, it may not work on all Android builds. Just a warning. See the ones listed.It is known to work with those.

    Technical level: Moderate (ie: Do not attempt unless you are not afraid of a bit of technical configuration changes)
    Brick Potential:Low unless you do not follow instructions. (your friend may likely know how to understand)

    Best of Luck

    you could also see if there is another tethering app that lets your iphone broadcast a native wireless network or you can just buy a nexus one and that will do it for you
