Apps that rely on an active internet connection depend upon two sources; your Wi-Fi connection, or the mobile data of your carrier service. A new jailbreak tweak by the name Carnitine is now available that lets you connect to the Wi-Fi from with-in any launched app, the action you’re most likely to prefer over consumption of mobile data when downloading large applications.


After downloading and installing this tweak, a new menu is going to appear in the stock Settings app. There’s only one toggle option available, which allows you to enable or disable a tweak. After you’ve enabled it, you’ll be presented with an option for any app you open ‘Do I have to enable Wi-Fi every time you open this app?’. There options can be selected; Yes, No or Not Now. Yes button will switch the Wi-Fi on automatically every time you open this app. The No button won’t allow for the action, while the Not Now button will make it a pending decision.

Despite this useful functionality, there are some drawbacks. The app is only for ‘enabling’ Wi-Fi automatically, so when you close down an application, it won’t toggle itself off automatically. Furthermore, after you’ve selected a particular option for an app, the Settings can’t be configured again. This means the apps you’ve decided to enable the Wi-Fi for will be added to the permanent Wi-Fi enabled list.


Though the app is limited in functionality, it may useful for you if you’re certain about your Wi-Fi needs for particular apps. It’s a free of charge download through Cydia’s BigBoss repository. It’s compatible with iOS 3.0 +, and works on all iDevices. Let us know if you try it out and how useful it turned out to be.
