SpotTweet: Will eventually allow you to tweet from Spotlight search. Hopefully.

By , Feb 15, 2012

SpotTweet is a promising tweak that has one small problem, it doesn’t actually work at the moment (at least it hasn’t for me).

SpotTweet is supposed to allow you to send tweets directly from the Spotlight search input box, and everything seems okay until you tap the send button.

Check inside for our analysis of the flawed, but ultimately cool concept…

The really nice thing about SpotTweet is that it retains your Spotlight functionality while allowing you to send out tweets directly from Spotlight. I realize there are many other provisions for sending tweets in iOS 5 these days, but I thought this method was a interesting use of available resources.

Sadly, while the oauth from Twitter appears to log you in fine, sending a tweet results in a log in error. I tried it with multiple devices and it yielded the same result.

SpotTweet can be downloaded for free on Cydia’s ModMyi repo. Hopefully it will be updated soon, as it would be sad for a tweak like this to remain unusable.

Have you experienced the same login errors?

    I wonder if it’s an issue with having “always use https” turned on for Twitter? That was an issue for IntelliScreenX when it was first released—my Twitter feed wouldn’t load until they updated ISX for https users.
