The image selection menu in Safari and Mail just got a lot more interesting. iEagleEye is a jailbreak tweak that adds a numerous amount of new options to image selection — options such as Google Images, opening in new tab, copying the image URL, and more.

If you’re looking to make your iOS experience more like a desktop experience when it comes to images, then you might want to give iEagleEye a look.

iEagleEye adds the following new options to the image selection menu:

  • Copy Image URL
  • Open Image in New Tab
  • Google Images
  • TinEye
  • EXIF/XMP
  • ImgOps

Basically, you can do a whole lot more than you could before when it comes to images. If you’re a photographer, or someone who likes to blog on the go, then this could be a worthy companion jailbreak tweak for you.

iEagleEye can be had for $0.99 on Cydia’s BigBoss repo, and it’s compatible with jailbroken devices running iOS 4 or iOS 5.

Does this look like the sort of tweak that you’d find useful?

  • thought it would be a good idea but as I see it works only with the pictures in safari. is there a tweak, which also works in the photo album app of the iphone?

      I guess this is just a start. with enough tweaks it could work like it does on Android which lets you press hold on anything and has tons of options. best of all, the way it works on Android is that any app can be added to the menu.

      Maybe, just maybe apple will use this idea in the next OS.
