  • 'Vestigo' is an Awesome Wi-Fi Manager for iOS 7 That You Can Access From Anywhere


    If you like keeping track of your iOS 7 device's Wi-Fi network information and managing your Wi-Fi networks, then a new jailbreak tweak called Vestigo by iOS developer Pigi Galdi is something you need to check out today!

    This tweak is a Wi-Fi management jailbreak tweak that can be accessed system-wide via Activator. You just assign the tweak an Activator action, and a Wi-Fi management interface will appear over whatever you might be in. It appears to graphically expand from the Wi-Fi icon in the Status Bar, which adds to the tweak's fluid and tasteful graphics and animations.

    In terms of usefulness, Vestigo earns a strong commendation on this front as well. It's not just an easy way to switch Wi-Fi networks and see what's available when you want to, but it can also show you very detailed information about each Wi-Fi network around you, and detailed information about Wi-Fi networks you've joined in the past.

    For example, Vestigo can give you all of the following information:

    • Nearby Wi-Fi networks
    • SSID and passwords for previously-joined Wi-Fi networks
    • IP address
    • Encryption method type
    • Channel
    • Signal bar strength
    • RSSI numeric information
    • MAC address
    • Wireless router vendor
    • And much more

    When viewing previously-joined Wi-Fi networks, you can see not only the name of those networks, but also the passwords used to join secured networks are shown underneath the SSIDs of those networks. You can tap and hold on any of these networks to copy the SSID and password to your clipboard to be pasted somewhere else. You can also delete any Wi-Fi networks from your device from here using the "Edit" button at the top right-hand corner of the interface.

    Vestigo adds a preferences pane to your Settings application where you can configure an Activator action for opening the tweak's interface. We figured that since the tweak graphically appears to open from the Wi-Fi icon in the Status Bar, a Status Bar-based Activator action would fit the picture quite well, so we went with Double-tapping on the Status Bar to launch Vestigo:



    Vestigo is not only convenient, but also handy. If you would like to give this tweak a try for your Wi-Fi networking needs, it's available in Cydia's ModMyi repository right now for the paid price of only $1.59. The tweak does require iOS 7 to be installed, and if you don't already have Activator installed, it will be installed along with Vestigo.

    Name: Vestigo
    Price: $1.59
    Version: 0.2.2-1
    Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.1.2, Activator
    Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 7.1.2
    Repo: ModMyi
    Developer: Pigi Galdi
    Editor's Rating:  5/5

      This looks similar to WiPi, but much, much better.

      This is very similar to YFiSelect which I had missed from iOS 6. Anyone know if there's a bluetooth solution like this? I miss BluSelect.

      I was thinking the same thing! And since WiPi is broke on 7.1...

      I think bluepicker works on 7.1.2 with activator.

      Your vestigo app is really great and something I wanted for a long time.

      If I can make a feature sugestion I would love to be able to enable a vpn connection in the same manner.

      Thank you for the app
