Thor automatically enables Wi-Fi when launching specific apps

Thor is a recently released jailbreak tweak that will enable your device’s Wi-Fi connection whenever a certain app is launched. The settings panel for Thor includes around a dozen different apps like Tweetbot, Cydia, App Store, Safari, YouTube, etc.

If your Wi-Fi connection is disabled, and you have Tweetbot enabled in Thor’s settings, the Wi-Fi connection will automatically enable whenever you launch Tweetbot, or any other app you have enabled in Thor’s settings panel.

Take a look at our video demonstration inside for a brief walkthrough…


Thor would be much more useful if it had options to disable Wi-Fi after closing an app, along with options to enable it or disable Wi-Fi for any app. As it stands, the list of 13 included apps is a bit on the anemic side.

Thor has potential to be a really good jailbreak tweak, but as it stands, it seems a bit half baked. Sure, it’s nice to be able to ensure your Wi-Fi is enabled for launching certain apps, but the tweak would be so much better with just a bit more fine tuning.

If you would like to give it a shot, Thor is available for free on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. What do you think?
