Fake Gps location so you can post on any app that uses your phone's locations. The app will overwrite your current location elegantly and the third party apps will think you are in Paris under the Eifel Tower or in New York on Times Square!
You must share your location with your friends, but the phone is almost dead, can't locate you or the GPS accuracy is bad? Or you need to geotag those old pictures for Instagram™ or Facebook™? No problem, use our app!
Make sure to DISABLE WIFI LOCATION SETTINGS and leave only GPS On for best results!!!!
On Samsung this will be called GPS Only.
Now with Tasker integration.
How to use:
- Choose your faked location and press play and the app will insert the Fake GPS location into your android phone.
Is your device Rooted? If yes you can use the Fake GPS with some apps as root without mock locations needed to be enabled :
Important: As of Kitkat 4.4 (Nexus 5 for example) the system folder is system/priv-app/
1. Copy pkg.apk in /mnt/asec/ (on some ROMS under data/app) to SDCard and rename it 'com.incorporateapps.fakepgs-1.apk' and move it to system/app or system/priv-app on 4.4. (Nexus 5) and then press on install via ES File Explorer and reboot. Make sure in ES File Explorer Root Explorer is enabled and Mount R/W is on RW!!!!
If you get a "parse error" make sure to change the permission to 777 and change the owner to system and reboot or Google how to move mnt/asec apps to system/app
Parse errors when moved as system app example fix:
Paid apps are encrypted under /mnt/asec, but on some devices the app might be under /data/app (or search for the package via the explorer search)! Contact us to assist you if need be!
