Earlier today I told you about FullForce, a new app by Ryan Petrich. Ryan is very prolific these days as he has yet another app available in Cydia.

Ryan’s new application is WiCarrier, a very simple app that displays the name of the wifi network you’re connected to in your status bar. Additionally, it can display your IP address as well.

After installing WiCarrier from Cydia, you will notice that if you’re on wifi, your carrier name has been replaced by the name of the wifi network. If you tap on the network name, it will display your IP address.

While it’s not a breakthrough app that will change your life, it’s still a nice little tweak.

    Nice tweak. Would be nice if it could get on app store, because i would rather not jailbreak my iPhone 3gs

    Does anyone know if WiCarrier works with jailbroken IOS 7.0.4?

    PS: iDB is awesome. Thanks for the great website and podcasts.
