RemoteTweet lets you share the Remote app’s now playing track

By , Apr 27, 2013

RemoteTweet

RemoteTweet is a new jailbreak tweak that allows you to send a tweet advertising the song currently playing via the App Store’s Remote app. The Remote app is an app that can be used to connect to local iTunes libraries on the same Wi-Fi network. This lets you control that iTunes library remotely using an iOS device.

With a combination of the Remote app and RemoteTweet, you can now easily advertise your now playing song via Twitter. This is despite the fact that the song is playing on a remote iTunes library, and not your actual iOS device.

RemoteTweet Settings

RemoteTweet features several options for configuring the way the tweet will appear. You can configure macros for the artist, song, and album titles. You also have the ability to select supporting Twitter clients, and decide whether or not you want to include album artwork along with the tweet.

RemoteTweet Client

RemoteTweet works with a variety of clients, and even works with Facebook’s built-in share sheet. If you’re not into tweeting, you can choose to use a copy action to copy the now playing details to the clipboard instead.

To initiate RemoteTweet, simply tap and hold the song details below the status bar. Check the GIF animation above for more guidance.

RemoteTweet won’t be for everyone, but if you’re someone who likes to control his or her music with the Remote app, then you may find it useful. RemoteTweet is available right now on Cydia’s BigBoss repo for free.

What do you think about it?

    I would like if they made this for music.app as well.

    I currently have Scale installed for tweeting what is currently playing. Though it’s integration with the app is elegant, it lacks the options that this app gives in terms of how the default tweet looks like.
