  • [Review] SimpleWiFi for Notification Center - Wi-Fi Information At Your Fingertips

    Of all the Notification Center widgets being released into Cydia since iOS 5ís launch, this new one, dubbed SimpleWiFi for Notification Center by iOS developer Pascal, allows you to see some critical Wi-Fi information right from Notification Center including the name of your Internet access point (SSID) and your local IP address. The widget is also very small, taking up just a small amount of space and keeping your Notification Center looking as spiffy as ever.

    Apart from displaying your Internet access point name and your local IP address, the widget also comes with a miniature switch for toggling your Wi-Fi on and off. The switch is extremely small and slightly difficult to grab ahold of, however with a little concentration and nerves of steel, you can avoid going through the maze that is your Settings application.

    Since Wi-Fi information is a critical part of any device, this tweak could only be a handy asset to you. OpenSSH is a common piece of software installed on jailbroken iPhones and this widget gives you an easy peek at the IP address you need to use to SSH into your iOS device. The widget also lets you know what router you are connected to if there are several Wi-Fi networks around you.

    SimpleWiFi for Notification Center can be enabled or disabled at any time by dragging the widget in and out of Notification Center from the Notifications preferences pane in the Settings application. There are no options to configure for the widget. After installing, you may have to drag the widget into Notification Center via Settings before you can use it. Since itís free, be sure to give this a try!

      That freaked you out?! That IS my SSID to the very letter. And then that also happens to be my laptop's local IP address. I literally fired up TOR to see if there was some weird script that detected my wireless info. I've spent a good 30 minutes looking at this page's source for some kind of script, and have sent this page to 3 of my friends, as I'm freaking out that somehow my Wifi info is posted on the internet.
