MockGo for Mac is an app that enables you to spoof the GPS location of your iPhone. You can bypass restrictions in all kinds of circumstances. This app is useful for example when you want to widen your search radius in a dating app or play a georeferenced game outside of your region.
You can also simulate multi-stop routes in any location around the globe, which is invaluable when planning trips. If you prefer a multipurpose app that still includes GPS simulation, iTools is an excellent option to consider.
Getting set up
Setting up MockGo on your Mac couldn't be simpler. Once you've downloaded the app, simply open it, then connect your iPhone with a USB cable.
When the app opens, click ‘Start’. First, you need to centre the map on your actual location. Once you've done that, use ‘Teleport Mode’ to select a different location anywhere in the world. Click ‘Move Here’ and you will see that location on your iPhone.
Multi-stop movement is useful when playing geo-based games such as Pokémon GO. You can plan an entire route with multiple stops along the way. Similarly, if you’re planning an itinerary, especially one that involves public transport, MockGo’s multi-stop mode is an essential tool to avoid missing connections.
Realistic Mode gives you an even more realistic simulation of your virtual journey. It considers that in the real world, we don't usually travel at a constant speed. MockGo randomly varies the movement speed by plus or minus 30% to simulate real-world conditions.
Given that jailbreaking your iPhone is likely to void your warranty, we love that you can create a fake GPS with this app without taking that risk. It's quite handy that you can change the location on iOS devices, freeing you from geographical restrictions.
The app is a pleasure to use, procedures are simple and the map's appearance fits in with the aesthetic of the iPhone.
