  • How to Get the iOS 6-Style Photo Sharing Menu On Your iOS 5 Device


    One of iOS 6ís nicest features is the new sharing interface from the Photos application, which appears when you tap on the action button. Unfortunately (and for a very good reason), not everybody can update to the iOS 6 beta, as it was released for developers to test their applications and not for the general public to play around with it. If you want to get this iOS 6 beta-like Photos application sharing interface, you can do so today with a new free jailbreak tweak called iOS 6 Photos Menu by iOS developer NobitaZZZ.

    The interface does a good job of mimicking the iOS 6 interface, however itís not exactly the same. Itís missing a Photo Stream button, and it comes with a Google+ button, which iOS 6 does not have. The new interface also contains all of the buttons that iOS 5 does, but includes 3 new ones Ė Copy, Facebook, and Google+. The new Facebook and Google+ buttons allow you to share the photo on either Facebook or Google+ just like we have been able to do on Twitter with iOS 5ís Twitter integration.

    The tweak doesn't build Facebook integration into the iOS device the way iOS 6 does, but it offers shortcuts that are comparable to the real thing. Tapping on the Facebook button will open a prompt asking you to enter a message along with your picture:



    iOS 6 Photos Menu has no options to configure. The additional features of Google+ and Facebook alone make this tweak worth downloading if you own a Facebook or Google+ account. Additionally, the new interface looks better than iOS 5's interface looked originally. You have to love it when a tweak like this is free! If you like sharing photos often, it is recommended that you give this tweak a try.

    Name: iOS 6 Photos Menu
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0-1
    Requirements: iOS 5
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: NobitaZZZ

      Tried it on the iPad 3 and it doesn't work. I kinda wish it said what it's compatible with in the description. I'll probably grab this for my iPod, though

      Is this the first time the JB scene is copying Apple instead of the other way around?

      for uploading to facebook, it only uses the first picture that you pull up. to upload another picture, you have to close down the pictures app, then restart it! OR you can just use fusion to upload to facebook using the twitter icon!

      Recommending a bad tweak thats not like you modmyi, try clicking the Airplay button or delete button and it enables the new menu, which contains no airplay support or delete function lol

      Not perfectly mocked up to a T. But, there are tweaks like Mail Enhancer Pro that can give you a similar experience.

      I infinitely prefer the way it is now compared to iOS 6. If only you could remove all instances of 'tweet' and replace them with 'save to Pocket' then it would be perfect.

      Apple should take not of the Google+ and the Facebook button, they should add those.

      Yeah it's buggy. Also, this tweak causes that weird resizing of the folder background and app switcher background..delete

      I'm hoping the next iOS 6 gem to get ported to iOS 5 is the NC social posting widget for Facebook and twitter.

      This is one of those tweaks that I would be willing to pay for, even if I might only use it for a couple of months.
