FakeLocation is an oldie but goodie. Available in Cydia since 2009, this package lets you fake your GPS location to any app. While this may, at first, seem to be only for the sketchy, it does have real world applications and value.
If you have ever wanted to use an app that wasn’t available in your country, then this app is for you. If your MLB.com At Bat 2011 and MLB.TV subscriptions wont let you watch in market games due to blackout restriction, this will solve that issue. I personally attended a Texans game last season and wasn’t able to utilize the Android NFL Mobile app from Verizon from inside the stadium. If I would have had FakeLocation (which Android doesn’t), it wouldn’t have been a problem.
FakeLocation is extremely easy to use. Just open it up, choose the app you want to fake out and then pick your desired fake location, save and you’re done. It’s as simple as that. To end faking your location just un-check the desired app .
The only issue I had with FakeLocation was a delay in getting my desired location to register with certain app’s. Google Maps seemed to respond faster than Google Latitude. Other than that it worked like a charm.
FakeLocation is available in Cydia for €2.79 EUR
