  • How to Get the iPad's Photo Booth App On Your iOS 7 iPhone or iPod Touch

    Apple's Photo Booth application only comes pre-installed on the iPad, for whatever reason, and not the iPhone or iPod touch. This handy little application gives you plenty of entertainment by allowing you to take front-facing or rear-facing pictures with silly photo effects, and is great for entertaining the kids or having just a good laugh for yourself.

    Luckily, the jailbreak community has answered the demand for the application on devices other than the iPad. iOS developer CoolStar has managed to port the iPad's Photo Booth application to iPhones and iPod touches running iOS 7, and it's fully legal and just about bug-free.

    To get it, you'll want to install a new free jailbreak tweak called Photo Booth (iOS 7) for iPhone/iPod touch from Cydia's BigBoss repository. After you install it, and respring your device, you'll find the new Photo Booth icon on your home screen, as shown above.

    Once you open the application on your iPhone or iPod touch, you'll get the interface below:

    You'll find yourself with several different photo effects including:

    • Thermal Camera
    • Mirror
    • x-Ray
    • Kaleidoscope
    • Normal
    • Light Tunnel
    • Squeeze
    • Twirl
    • Stretch

    As you can see, this handy little port from CoolStar is just about exactly what we would expect if Apple were to legitimately port the application to the iPhone or iPod touch. The tweak doesn't have any options to configure, just search for, download, and install the tweak, and you'll have access to the Photo Booth application on your iOS 7 iPhone or iPod touch.

      ^ wow... Bother to post, honored to have your witty response with us.
      Shows that you are a bored as me writing at 12:35am to let you know what a pretentious ****** with useless comments you have left.
      At least my time waisted was to acknowledge your ignorance and the fact you wasted even more time over nothing.
      Here I had someone who has to have his two 's and has a big mouth to reply too so...
