WeFi iPhone app kicks ass on Cydia!


Here's a nice surprise following some not-so-nice turn of events...


Following the great traction WeFi applications have received by millions of users on leading smartphone platforms like Nokia/Symbian, Windows Mobile and Android (and of course laptops and netbooks) we wanted to spread the message to iPhone users too.


You probably know that Apple recently banned all the Wi-Fi scanning apps from the App Store - a weird move, in our view, since Apple and AT&T are struggling with cellular data network overload issues for so long, and Wi-Fi could have been their salvation - but anyway, iPhone users are now painfully missing a great app that would make Wi-Fi location and connection a simple, automatic, snappy experience.


Due to a lot of requests from users following the Apple ban,  we decided to publish our application on Cydia, the so-called "Alternative iPhone App Market" (also known as the "Jailbreak App Market"...) so at least people who like to unleash the full power of their iPhones and install non-formal apps will be able to enjoy it. We published under the name Extreme WiFi.


The results were surprising - over 30,000 downloads in the first 7 days since publishing, and the downloads keep coming in!


So if you have already unlocked your iPhone (or iPod Touch) and tried to downloading apps from Cydia, you are more than welcome to try out Extreme WiFi and let us know what you think about it and what more would you like it to do for you. This is the first version and more is to come...


Here are a couple of screen shots from Extreme WiFi (the scrawny robot figure is actually animated...)
 


 


To install our app, just run Cydia, select Search, type in "Extreme WiFi" and click on the item you get in the result to install.

  1. Why don't you release a stripped down version that, say, only gives you the ability to search for WiFi spots? Apple may change its mind in the future, and you may be at an advantage with some non-jailbroken users out there already with the app.
    I'm waiting for the iPhone wefi app to start fullyvusong the service.

  2. What about an update that supports iPad *and* backgrounding?
