A new jailbreak tweak that’s just hit Cydia allows users to upload photos to Facebook directly from the photo library on their iOS device without having to use a dedicated application. Native FB Upload allows you to select your photo and send it to Facebook just as easily as you can to MobileMe.
While the App Store is full of Facebook applications that allow you to upload photos, this $1.99 tweak from Tyler Nettleton (@InfectionX) cuts out the middle man. Once installed you can select a photo in your camera roll, or any other photo album, and tap the ‘export’ button in the bottom left that you’d usually use to send an image via MMS, email, or to MobileMe. You’ll have a new option to upload to Facebook.
Selecting the Facebook option allows you to add a caption to your image and share it instantly with your friends – no app required.
At the moment Native FB Upload will only upload one photo at a time, however, when speaking to ModMyi its developer said that a future update would introduce the option to upload multiple images, in addition to speed improvements.
Check out the video below; it looks like a great little tweak!
