Want to travel across the globe without leaving the confines of your humble abode? If so, then look no further than LocationHolic, a location-spoofing jailbreak tweak for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
LocationHolic works by essentially overriding your device’s location data with a location of your choosing. Choosing the location is as simple as searching or even placing a pin on a map. It really doesn’t get any simpler than LocationHolic, as you’ll see in our video walkthrough…
Now I know you may be asking yourself, “Why would anyone want to fake their location?” Honestly, there could be various reasons for that, but off the top of my head I could think of Foursquare check-ins, playing jokes on your friends with Facebook locations, Find my Friends, and changing locations in games, such as Rule the Sky, etc.
One of the best features about LocationHolic, besides its ease of use, is its price. It’s completely free on Cydia’s ModMyi repo, although it will prompt you to donate after you’ve used the app a certain amount of times.
If there’s a specific location that you want to venture to time and time again, LocationHolic features the ability to bookmark your location, or use previous items in your history.
Even better, if you use iOS 5, you can use Notification Center to toggle LocationHolic on or off via SBSettings.
For a kinda free jailbreak tweak, LocationHolic offers a lot of features that can prove useful in a variety of circumstances. Have you tried it yet? If so, let us know what you think about it in the comments below. For more information visit LocationHolic’s official website.
