For those that take screenshots often on their iOS devices, you probably understand that for the most part, you're taking a screenshot of something to show it to someone. With that logic in mind, it makes sense that after you take a screenshot, you should be prompted with sharing options to share the screenshot that you just took.
A new free jailbreak tweak dubbed ScreenshotShare by iOS developer DarthL will do just that.
As soon as you're ready to take a screenshot, you can press the home and power buttons together and a share sheet will appear at the bottom of the display. If you want to send the screenshot that you just took via iMessage to a friend, then pick on the Messages options, and the screenshot you took will appear in a message composition screen that you can send to anyone you want. There are other options included too, including:
- Text Message/iMessage
- Save Image
- Assign to Contact
Notably, if you press the cancel button, and you go to the Photos application, you will notice that the screenshot you took isn't in your Camera Roll. What the developer has done is ensure that the only time a screenshot is saved to your Camera Roll is when you've chosen what you want to do with it. If you want to save the screenshot without sharing it, you should tap on the "Save Image" option in the share sheet that appears.
If you would like to give ScreenshotShare a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. The tweak has no options to configure, and it makes a nice free alternative to ScreenshotShareSheet. Notably, the tweak only works on 32-bit iOS devices.
