iOS 6 – Apple’s new mobile operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch comes with more than 200 new features.
One of the major new features is the deep Facebook integration, similar to the Twitter integration Apple had introduced in iOS 5. But strangely there is still no way to share the music you’re listening to, with your friends on Facebook or Twitter.
Joshua Tucker – iOS jailbreak developer has released a new jailbreak tweak called Scale at the WorldWide Jailbreak Convention (WWJC) yesterday, which allows you to share what’s playing now with your friends via Twitter, Facebook, email or message.
As you can see in the screenshot below, the jailbreak tweak adds a new Share button to the scrubber bar (which is displayed when you tap on the Album artwork on the Now Playing screen), next to the Shuffle toggle in the Now Playing screen of the native Music app.
When you tap on it, it opens an iOS 6-like menu with an option to share the song with your friends either on Facebook (iOS 6 only), Twitter, email, message. You can also add the song to the playlist and copy the name of the song and the singer to the Clipboard.
The jailbreak tweak is so well integrated with the Music app, that you’ll forget you had hacked your iPhone to add it.
Scale is available for free on Cydia. So download it and let us know what you think of the jailbreak tweak in the comments.
