  • NowPlaying for Facebook Available on Cydia


    When it comes to sharing on social networks, there are many of us who love telling the world what we listen to. Whether it's the rap scene or country music, we just LOVE to let people know what we're listening to. Even if people think it's annoying as ever, it doesn't matter, because you care!

    For us Twitter users, recent tweak releases for Tweetbot and Twitter for iPhone have added a new button to limit the strain on our precious fingers. Now with the simple tap of the button, we can paste what we're listening to on our iPod right into the compose window. Like the popular NowPlaying for Tweetbot created by Filippo Bigarella (@filippobiga), a new tweak has recently been released via the BigBoss repository known as NowPlaying for Facebook.

    Just like the NowPlaying tweaks for Twitter for iPhone and Tweebot, it adds a simple button to your compose window to paste what you're listening to into the message. There's no configuration required and it's a simple install and use. To make matters even more exciting, it's free of charge so hit it up on Cydia pronto!

    It's compatible with both the iPhone and iPod Touch and works on the highest firmware (4.3.3). I find it to be an awesome tweak and have loved it for Twitter as well. Hopefully soon it will be available on the iPad.

    Version 1.1 was just released last night, the only change was removing the hashtag before "NowPlaying."



    It requires that you have the official Facebook application from the AppStore.

      Oh god please do not let any of my "Friends" get that [edit] tweak [/edit]... I know a few of them that would spam every song they play and I do /not/ want to see all that junk on my wall >.<

      @Joshua: I've spent a great many years making sure to block every single game and game-like announcement from my wall on FB so that I only see real information that my friends post. There'd be no way to filter out the NowPlaying stuff. Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of it, it stems from the whole IRC MP3 playing days, which I was guilty of doing myself, and still do once in a blue moon, but without a way to filter it out, it could be nerve wracking; however, from the screenshot above, very clean implementation.

      There's definitely a concern there regarding "spam." But, hopefully people won't get too into it. I'm sure you can take a little right? Lol we all have to (who doesn't have that "annoying" friend?).

      Only works with iPod. No grooveshark or pandora. Hopefully the developer can find a way to include the streaming media apps as well in future updates. Great idea tho!!

      I know you're right there lol - A little I actually welcome, because my musical tastes are pretty wide, so maybe someone can turn me on to something else. I know I've gone straight to YouTube before after seeing a few of the twit #NowPlaying to see if I thought the song was any good (Rebecca Black's Friday excluded from that comment).

      There are two completely different Tweetbot apps on the AppStore. Both are $1.99. The one by Tapbots seems to be more popular. Which one is better, and which one did filippobiga make his mod for? Anyone know?

      Jahooba, my main man what's up? Good to see you! . Filippo made the applications for the TapBots app. That's weird, I'll have to look, I never noticed two apps.

      Ok, it's the one not made by KiokuHacker. It's Tapbots for sure.
