Scale lets you easily share “now playing” details from the stock Music app

By , Sep 29, 2012

Scale is a new jailbreak tweak — one of three shown off today at JailbreakCon by Joshua Tucker — which allows you to easily share what you’re listening to via the stock Music app.

Scale allows you to easily share your now playing track via Twitter, Mail, Messages, and more. Take a look inside for a video walkthrough showcasing Scale in action…

Along with the sharing functionality, Scale also lets you add now playing tracks to a playlist, or copy the track’s details to the pasteboard.

If you want to give Scale a go, you’ll need a jailbroken iPhone running iOS 5.0 or higher. If you happen to have a jailbroken instance of iOS 6, then you’ll get Facebook sharing as well, since the tweak uses iOS 6’s new sharing pane.

Although Scale isn’t currently available for the iPad, an iPad version is reportedly in the works. Scale, a free download, isn’t yet available on Cydia, but it should be hitting the wire any time now. Once it does, and you get a little hands-on time with the tweak, be sure to let us know what you think about it in the comments below.

    WWJC is showing some awesome tweaks.. The refresh button in Cydia is my best friend.

    In my opinion the best feature of that is the “add to playlist” option. Adding the song you’re listening to, to a playlist, is nothing short of a pain in the ass.

    Really couldn’t care less about the sharing functionality.

    Added to my list of tweaks to install when an iPhone 5 jailbreak comes around.

    I do have a suggestion for customizable options.

    For example you can go into Settings and change posting layout like: {Any Text Here} {Song} by {Artist} on {Album} and arrange it any way you want it to.

    Also, an option to search iTunes for the song to be included and add a shortened link at the end would be sweet.

    Of course this suggestion would be a “Pro” version, in which I would have no problem with buying since I haven’t come across a music sharing tweak that does this.

    If I have Fusion installed, this will allow this tweak to share to fb, right?
