Force use carrier data when WiFi is connected?

I have a random question, is it possible to use carrier data (3g/4g) when WiFi connection is asstablished? Basicly let the app choose what data signal is best?

 

Again, this is something random I've been thinking about.

 

Thanks,

Cozz

Thanks m8. I crossed that thread but I thought they were talking about shutting down wifi via app at the beginning. Looks very doable.

Yep. To summarize it appears there is stuff in the 10.2 API that can be used for this. Prior to 10.2 you would need to manipulate the routing table to cause stuff sent to some IPs (or all) out through the carrier network gateway rather than the default WiFi one.
