Anybody know of a tweak that let's you send the pics that you take from the lock screen? Hitting done and going to the home screen to send them is annoying.
For those that take screenshots often on their iOS devices, you probably understand that for the most part, you're taking a screenshot of something to show it to someone. With that logic in mind, it makes sense that after you take a screenshot, you should be prompted with sharing options to share the screenshot that you just took.
A new free jailbreak tweak dubbed ScreenshotShare by iOS developer DarthL will do just that.
As soon as you're ready to take a screenshot, you can press the home and power buttons together and a share sheet will appear at the bottom of the display. If you want to send the screenshot that you just took via iMessage to a friend, then pick on the Messages options, and the screenshot you took will appear in a message composition screen that you can send to anyone you want. There are other options included too, including:
Assign to Contact
Notably, if you press the cancel button, and you go to the Photos application, you will notice that the screenshot you took isn't in your Camera Roll. What the developer has done is ensure that the only time a screenshot is saved to your Camera Roll is when you've chosen what you want to do with it. If you want to save the screenshot without sharing it, you should tap on the "Save Image" option in the share sheet that appears.
If you would like to give ScreenshotShare a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. The tweak has no options to configure, and it makes a nice free alternative to ScreenshotShareSheet. Notably, the tweak only works on 32-bit iOS devices.
From here, you can enable or disable the tweak on demand (doing this requires a respring), configure the wallpapers on a per-page basis, configure the animation (none, or fade) that happens when moving from one wallpaper on one page to another wallpaper on another page, and configure the shroud.
When you pick a wallpaper for each page, you will be brought to an interface with a "Choose" button, and a number of different number buttons at the top of the interface. The Choose button will bring you to your Photo Library so you can pick an image to set as the wallpaper. The number buttons represent each Home Screen page, so if you have 3 Home Screen pages like me, you will only set a wallpaper for pages 1, 2, and 3.
Once you've set wallpapers, changes take effect immediately and you will be able to head out to your Home Screen and flip between pages and you'll notice your wallpaper change before your eyes on each page.
We hope that in the future the developer will add support for picking directly from the iOS wallpapers and not force you to pick from the Photo Library.
If you would like to give springPage a try, it's available right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository for $1.99. The tweak requires iOS 7 to be installed.
