  • 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

      Sounds great on paper. Unfortunately, after installing and testing, i'm prompted to allow a Facebook app called 'Sara' to access my photos:



      Immediately uninstalled.

      LOL... Sara is the way the tweak uploads to Facebook.
      3rd party apps need permissions to upload.
      This is totally normal.
      Freak out a little?

      Anyways the tweak sucks right now. The set as wallpaper doe not work at all. The twitter button isnt working for me either. Uninstalled due to bugs...

      Some people just don't know how it all works is all...

      So your set as wallpaper does not work? Every feature, including that one working over here, I am on iPhone 4 OS 5.1.1

      I like this tweak, its way more exotic over the original iOS5.

      Good thing I didn't post anything truly personal. Need to keep a closer eye on apps like this. When you post a picture what the app really does is upload your image to their server then feed the copy's URL to Twitter or Facebook.

      Here's the one picture I thought I was sharing from my phone to Facebook:

      Looks like I'll be uninstalling this too.

      The tweak comes with practically zero documentation, no settings, and a FB app called "Sara", with no information with it at all? Very poorly done.
