Just two days ago, as of this writing, Facebook launched a new application
in the App Store dedicated simply to social poking. The application allowed you to poke anyone on your friends list with messages, pictures, or videos, and you could even choose how long they would be able to see it.
One problem with the application, according to iOS developer Mathieu Bolard
, is that the application doesn’t give you a way to easily select all of your friends at once. You can go through and pick them one at a time, but for people that have hundreds, even thousands of Facebook friends, this could become cumbersome and even overwhelming.
Because of this, Bolard has created a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed Poke'em-all
for the users of Facebook’s new Poke application. It adds a new check button to the interface so that you can select everyone in your friends list at once in just one tap. This will allow you to send the poke to everyone without the painstaking process of selecting everyone one-by-one.
Shown above is the new check button that is added to the interface.
To use the tweak, one must simply tap on that check button shown above and everyone in the friends list will get selected so you can send the poke to everyone at once:
Obviously Poke’em-all isn’t for everybody, as not everyone uses Facebook, let alone Facebook’s new Poke application. However if you’ve been having fun with Facebook’s new Poke application, this tweak will do nothing but give you more power over your friends. Disclaimer: with great power comes great responsibility. We are not responsible if your friends un-friend you for your poking habits.
This tweak has no options to configure and you can grab it for free from the BigBoss repository right now.
Facebook Poke must be installed from the App Store
