How to add the iOS 6 photos menu to iOS 5

With iOS 6, the iPhone and its brethern gain an all new photo sharing menu interface that includes the likes of Facebook, Twitter, and more. Its interface is much more pleasing to the eye than the current bland sheet based interface used on iOS 5 and below.

Thankfully, you don’t have to be a developer to enjoy the new iOS 6 interface, because there is a new jailbreak tweak that mimics the new interface and even provides greater functionality than what iOS 6 users have. Take a look inside as we go hands-on with iOS 6 Photos Menu


iOS 6 Photos Menu includes Twitter, Facebook, and even Google Plus sharing options — something you’l likely never see on the stock photos menu due to Apple’s tumultuous relationship with the folks over at Mountain View.

In my testing it worked perfectly fine on my iPhone 4 running iOS 5.1.1. I did, however, experience issues with the sharing buttons not working on my iPod touch running the same firmware. Whether this was a one-off case, or a sign of a bigger issue still remains to be seen to me, but either way, it’s certainly worth giving it a shot.

iOS 6 Photos Menu can be had free of charge from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Have you taken it for a test drive yet?
