Good news for anyone who enjoys spoofing their iPhone location to trick friends and apps alike. The jailbreak tweak LocationFaker has been updated to work with iOS 8. For those who purchased the previous version of LocationFaker, the update is free of charge.
LocationFaker8 replaces GPS-sourced location data with a fake location chosen by the user. Once installed, the LocationFaker app will appear on the iOS 8 home screen. Locations can be searched, and a list of favorite spoofed locations can even be kept for later use.
While the fake location will be used by a majority of apps, some are more sophisticated and will not recognize the fake location. In any case, LocationFaker8 can be used to circumvent regional content restrictions or simply for fun. A White List of apps can be configured to make sure certain apps always use the real location.
LocationFaker8 is available from the BigBoss repository on Cydia for $2.99. To start customizing iOS, click here for instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 8.1 with Pangu.
