How to Get An iOS 6 Style Twitter Widget On Your iOS 5 Device
One feature of iOS 6 that stands out is the new widget that includes a tap to Tweet (Twitter) and tap to Post (Facebook) functionality. If you want this feature on your jailbroken iOS 5 device, you can do so now with a new free jailbreak widget called iOS 6 Twitter Widget for Notification Center
by iOS developer Mathieu Hendey
The widget was made to mimic the appearance of the iOS 6 widget, however it is made only for Twitter as iOS 5 doesn’t come with Facebook integration – because of this, the widget spans completely across Notification Center with only Twitter in mind. Another noticeable difference between this mockup and the real thing is that iOS 6 uses Twitter’s old logo and this jailbreak widget for iOS 5 uses Twitter’s new logo.
When you tap on the widget from Notification Center, it will bring up the familiar iOS 5 Tweeting prompt that we all know and love. The widget relies directly on iOS 5’s Twitter integration, so as soon as you tap Send, the Tweet will appear in your Twitter feed:
You will need to have iOS 5 installed to use this widget since it requires both Notification Center and Twitter integration to function. You can enable or disable the widget on demand by dragging it in and out of Notification Center from the Notifications preferences pane in the Settings application.
If you are out to make your iOS 5 device look like an iOS 6 device, this widget is worth installing. You could also take a look at how to get the iOS 6 photo sharing menu
