How to fake a Wi-Fi connection for Android apps that limit their functionality on 3G
In your daily life as an Android user, you may have experienced a moment where you don't have reliable Wi-Fi networks nearby, but a particular app of yours needs wi-fi to function, and cellular data simply doesn't cut it. Some apps are like that, they have their functionality limited in accordance to the connection type. But this is Android, of course, so there's a way of getting around every obstacle, including this one.

Owners of rooted devices that have the Xposed framework installed can take advantage of the Fake Wifi Connection module. It provides an easy way of luring specific apps that your device is, indeed, connected to a Wi-Fi network, which lets you take advantage of their full potential. Unfortunately, the module doesn't officially support Android Lollipop, although you can still give it a chance. Users that are still on KitKat, however, are good to go right away! Onto the slideshow, then.
