Fusion: integrate Facebook sharing into iOS 5 and more

By , Apr 8, 2012

Wouldn’t it be great if you could have Facebook integration that acted similar to iOS’ built in Twitter integration? Well, now you can.

Introducing Fusion — a jailbreak tweak that integrates Facebook, Foursquare, and even MySpace (obligatory lol) into your default Twitter composition pane. But the tweak doesn’t stop there, it also allows you to composes messages for all of the aforementioned networks using Siri.

Check out our full video walkthrough on this awesome jailbreak tweak inside…

The wonderful thing about Fusion is that it’s a totally familiar and seamless experience. You don’t have to do or learn anything new; it just works.

If you’ve ever sent a tweet before from an iOS 5 device, you can update your Facebook status or Foursquare info the same way. It’s the tight integration with the existing mechanisms that make Fusion such a wonderful tweak.

I know a lot of people have been dying for Apple to put native Facebook integration into iOS — well, Fusion is the closest thing to that.

If you have an iPhone 4S, or have managed to get Siri running on an older device, it also comes bundled with an AssistantExtension plugin dubbed Furi. With Furi installed, you can compose posts destined for multiple social networks using only your voice.

As if all of that wasn’t enough, the expansion possibilities for Fusion are virtually unlimited as far as supported social networks go. You see; each network is simply a plugin, and additional plugins can be created by any developer. In other words, with Fusion, your $2.00 investment need not necessarily stop there.

For less than the price of a venti latte at your favorite Coffee joint, you can have built in Facebook integration that feels almost Apple like. If you’re a Facebook fan at least, I’d say we have a sure winner on our hands.

Fusion can be downloaded from Cydia’s BigBoss repo starting now. Let me know what you think about it in the comments below.

    Can’t find it. Not sure if it’s in there yet.

      Refresh your Cydia.. I see it right now

    • Veronica Xu

      I see it there too :D

    Is this for ipad too?

    i hope it has Twitkafly integration too, not only with the standard twitter composition panel.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jacer.lee Jacer Lee

      yea the only thing missing from twitkafly is the location thingy

    This is a great concept but I must say, if you don’t use foursquare or Myspace (most people) then this is somewhat useless. Twitter already has a Facebook integration feature that allows everything you tweet to be posted on Facebook as well, essentially allowing me to make a tweet via integrated iOS composer and have it posted to both Twitter and Facebook, just like this app does. Better yet it won’t say “via Fusion” at the bottom of the FB status, rather it’ll read “via Twitter”.

    Good idea and i’m sure it’ll be helpful for some people, esp. those who use more than just twitter/FB, but for most people this functionality can already be achieved via official twitter/FB integration.

      That’s what im thinking too, and it crashes on my ipad 2 =(

      how do u do this integration? Would appreciate your kind help. thanks!

      • http://www.facebook.com/jacer.lee Jacer Lee

        Just log in your twitter with safari or explorer and you will find an option to post to facebook/integration. Every time u post on twitter it will appear in you facebook too.

      On top of linking your Twitter with FB in the Twitter settings you can use Activator to assign whatever gesture to open up your tweet composer. You can tweet from anywhere on your phone instead of being limited to certain apps (didn’t watch video).

      or you could use Selective tweets. :)

      With this you can post only on facebook without posting on twitter I think.. That’s an advantage

        That’s what I was going to say. For me my public information goes on Twitter and private goes on facebook. It drives me nuts when people use Twitter to post to facebook … especially if I’m following them on both.

    When I go to the plugin sections, it doesn’t show anything.

    • http://www.facebook.com/WayneSnr Wayne Snr

      I am the same also . No plugins

      Another respring worked for me.

  • http://www.facebook.com/WayneSnr Wayne Snr

    Reinstall it. Once I reinstalled it the Plugins are now available.

    • http://twitter.com/solidsephiroth Sam Irizarry

      Worked for me, thanks!

    The posts to Facebook are only visible to my friends and don’t follow my default FB settings, hence don’t show up on th general news page.

    Anyone else with this problem?

    • jose castro

      im having the same problem

    • http://profiles.google.com/jacob.noergaard Jacob Nørgaard

      When authenticating Facebook, at the bottom it says “who can see activity from this app on facebook?”. Default is friends. Set it to public!

        That worked, thanks!

      • jose castro

        o sh!t, thanks man

    i want instagram in stead of myspace because i don’t use myspace..

    • https://twitter.com/#!/alexjdz Alex Diaz

      Instagram doesn’t allow 3rd-party uploaders.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Yannick-Van-Wiele/1268168497 Yannick Van Wiele

        Ok thanks for the info!

  • http://www.facebook.com/mattpet Matt Dowdy

    For me the best part of this tweak is the ability to upload photos directly from the photos.app by selecting tweet then Facebook, something that’s been lacking in ios 5 in my opinion

    • http://www.facebook.com/jacer.lee Jacer Lee

      Twitkafly is better in that sense

  • Ken Kelly

    Isn’t this what the new Windows Phone does already?

    • Anonymous

      Being that this is an Apple blog I don’t see what your point is, there are many things Android does that can’t be done on iOS, does that mean a tweak to allow the better parts of a rival OS shouldn’t be made? .. Again, what is your point.

    add instagram!!

      This has already been discussed troll..

        He isn’t a troll for not reading all the comments, dick

  • http://twitter.com/christodouluke Luke Christodoulou

    MySpace!? Surely tumblr or google+ would have been better.

    • http://profiles.google.com/jacob.noergaard Jacob Nørgaard

      That’s true, but since they are expanded via plugins, that should be doable in the future. Hopefully for free. Not that I had any problem pay a mere 2 bucks for a nice extention to the OS.

  • Vidur Tangri

    Can I post on my “Facebook Page” instead of my “wall” using this tweak?

  • http://twitter.com/imperiumSG Andy M.

    So getting this haha. And great video explaining it.

  • http://twitter.com/MrBrothason Mr Brothason

    Hey Jeff, do you know of a tweak that lets you control a docked iPod from the app itself? I get a white screen via my car USB

  • SureShotGER

    Does Fusion works without a Twitter Account?
    I disabled Twitter and when i double tapping on my status bar my iPhone is crashing.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=618906934 Reno Tiongson

      Same question, can you post without twitter? I don’t have a twitter account.

  • http://JailbrokenTips.com/ Max

    Good tweak, just it limits your FB message to 140 characters…

  • Sean

    Reinstalled this m*ther.. respringed it multiple times but still no luck. Love the idea, but give me back my money!

    iPhone 4S – iOS 5.1.1
