How to Get the iOS 6 Style Photo Sharing Menu On Your iOS 5 Device
One of iOS 6’s 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 it’s not exactly the same. It’s 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 – 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 5’s 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
Requirements: iOS 5

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

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

Is there a tweak for VIP mailbox (or if your a developer looking at this could you make one) I'm currently on ios6 (but are going to downgrade to 5.1.1) and can't believe how useful I've found this...

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.

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