Sometimes, if a WiFi network doesn’t have a strong signal, your iOS device will not show it in the WiFi options. The iOS Settings app doesn’t show a network below a certain signal strength. That doesn’t mean that you cannot connect to it, but iOS doesn’t let you. To get rid of that problem, there’s a new tweak available in Cydia right now, called WiFi Booster.
Like its name, the tweak boosts WiFi reception on your iOS device and displays every available network in range, including the weak ones. It also shows the MAC address of the WiFi network along with true signal strength.
Therefore, using the WiFi Booster tweak, you can connect to a network that would otherwise be impossible to connect to. This tweak isn’t new, it’s been available on iOS 7 and older for sometime now. However, it was recently updated with support for iOS 8.
WiFi Booster isn’t a free tweak and will cost you $1.99. Is it worth it? Well, we’ll let you decide that. If you were already using WiFi Booster on iOS 7, then the update is free on iOS 8.
Try it out and let us know what you think of this tweak.
