WiCarrier: Show Your WiFi Network as Your Carrier

Share:

Out of all the awesome tweaks you can find in Cydia, for jailbroken devices, it’s the simple ones that I find blow me away the most. Notifier and MakeItMine are a couple of tweaks I have always had on my jailbroken iPhones, and I think I have found another.

WiCarrier is a new tweak from Ryan Petrich, the Canadian iPhone developer who brought us ProSwitcher, OverBoard, and ActionMenu, to name just a few. This awesome tweak, displays the name of the WiFi network you are connected to, where your carrier is displayed. Works for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. For the latter two, this will replace “iPod” or “iPad” with your networks’ name.

Also, if you tap the network name, it will display your device’s IP address. Very handy, if you are using OpenSSH to gain access to your root folders. I have blurred out part of my IP in this screen shot.

WiCarrier is available in Cydia now, for free, in the BigBoss repository.

If you tap my IP, I’ll break your finger. ;). Please follow me on Twitter: @rorypiper

    I like the wallpaper in the screenshots. Where could I download one like it?

    Love this. As I sometime have to check which wifi my iPad or iPhone is connected to. Cause sometime it links to a different wifi network, which I don't want it too. Now I can see it always without going to network to double check.

    Thanks for this – there are SOOO many little apps that its impossible to find the good ones so reviews on here are great! I installed it and its working fine, nice and small, un-intrusive πŸ™‚

    Also checked out Notifier and MakeItMine that you recommended – installed Notifier (very handy!) but didnt bother with MakeItMine since WiCarrier negates it.

    Can you guys recommend any other useful, tiny, un-intrusive apps that no (jailbroken) iPhone should be without? (I already have VoipOver3G) πŸ˜€

  • SBSettings
    Five Icon Dock
    Backgrounder

    if you are going to get Backgrounder, I recommend you get ProSwitcher as well

  • roadcarver

    Great app, installed it this morning!

    I second what Zeke said. Able to have multiple apps open with a flick of the screen is worth the jb.

    Thanks for the recommendations all πŸ˜€
