Cydia tweak integrates native Facebook uploader with Photos app

No comments:






It’s been four years since the original iPhone came out, but the rumored Facebook integration with iOS remains non-existent. iPhone users, however, needn’t eye their webOS- or BlackBerry-toting friends with envy – there’s an app for jailbroken devices that addresses this issue.

Native FB Upload, a two-buck download from the Cydia Store, enables you to share images by choosing a photo in the Photos app and tapping the new Facebook option in Export menu. Once you authorize via Facebook Connect, you can compose an optional message or share the image as is. Multiple photo uploads and other tweaks are being planned for future versions, Modmyi noted (via Cult of Mac).

The app’s pretty useful. Instead of launching the Camera app to snap a couple of photos, switch to the Facebook app, attach the images and write a message, do this all in one fell swoop inside the Photos app. It’s a convenient enhancement and a life-saver, especially if sharing photos with Facebook friends is your thing. Apple, of course, is expected to either add the same capability to iOS 5 or debut a new social photo sharing thing allegedly dubbed Photo Stream. It will be cool if a Facebook uploader is in the bowels of iOS 5. A plug-ins system would have been even better, making possible for developers to add new features to the stock Camera and Photos apps.

MyGreatFest Confirms P0sixninja as Speaker for London Event, MuscleNerd for USA

No comments:


Things are shaping up very nicely for the world’s first jailbreak and iDevice convention. MyGreatFest will hold its first gathering this September in London, U.K. for fellow geeks and the iDevice community.

Among other prominent speakers, like Jay “saurik” Freeman himself, the MyGrestFest team has managed to snag famed hacker and Chronic Dev Team member, Joshua Hill (P0sixninja) as a speaker for the upcoming event. The jailbreak and unlock wizard, MusceNerd, has also been confirmed as the keynote speaker for MyGreatFest’s event next year in the United States.


With two more renowned members of the jailbreak community speaking at MyGreatFest, there’s an even greater incentive for you to purchase tickets and merchandise to support this great event. Details of MyGreatFestUSA haven’t been revealed yet, but the event will be taking place sometime next year in California

P0sixninja will be representing the Chronic Dev Team at MyGreatFest in London, and MuscleNerd will represent the iPhone Dev Team state-side next year.

A recent donation towards P0sixninja’s travel expenses were successful (thanks to a very generous donation from the creator of Sn0wBreeze, iH8Sn0w), and Joshua Hill will be able to fly out to London and share his knowledge with the community this fall.

An all-star lineup is already in place for London’s event, and MyGreatFestUSA looks to be just as promising with characters like MuscleNerd already on board.

Are you getting excited for MyGreatFest? Do you plan to attend either London’s event or California’s gathering next year? We’ll keep you posted as more details about MyGreatFestUSA develop.


*thanks iDB*
