Dr.Fone - Virtual Location (iOS/Android):

Nowadays location-based apps and games are booming and facilitate our life remarkably. But the problems also emerge. Imagine this:

  • Jack downloaded a dating app that recommends matches based on his location. What if he's got fed up with the recommended ones, and want to explore those in other regions?
  • Henry is crazy for AR games that demand to play while walking outside. What if it's rainy or windy outside, it's late at night, or the roads are not safe?

Such scenes are not uncommon. Does Jack have to travel long journeys to other regions? Does Henry have to play the games regardless of safety issues, or simply give up the loved games?
