Cydia Tweak: Bring Facebook, Twitter Widgets Back To Notification Center

January 6, 2014

Apple giveth and Apple taketh away, and in iOS 7 the Cupertino, Calif. company indeed removed Notification Center share widgets for Twitter and Facebook. Fortunately, one new jailbreak tweak called Share Widget for iOS 7 can bring both back from the great beyond.

You can download the simple jailbreak tweak free of charge in the Cydia Store, and once installed (and your iDevice has resprung), you’ll find that widgets for your chosen social networks appear in Notification Center. Though of course, you’ll first need to enable Share Widget in the “Notification Center” section of the Settings app, since the package is disabled by default.

It’s possible to customize exactly what appears in Notification Center in this respect, and options include sharing widgets for Twitter and Facebook, as well as for China’s Sina Weibo and Tencent Weibo.

As you can see in the above image, options can be configured using a dedicated pane which Share Widget for iOS 7 adds to the built-in Settings app; a “Compact Layout” option can also have the widgets take up less space in Notification Center, but only when all four are enabled.

You can choose exactly where Share Widget’s icons appear in Notification Center also using the Settings application (in the “Notification Center” pane).

As mentioned, Share Widget for iOS 7 can be downloaded free of charge in the Cydia Store, and the jailbreak tweak is optimized for ARM64-iDevices.
