Send tweets from Notification Center (on iOS 5) with iQuick Tweet for iPhone (giveaway)

Post to Twitter from Notification Center (on iOS 5) with iQuick Tweet for iPhone (giveaway)

One of the big features of the upcoming iOS 6 is the ability to send a Tweet directly from Notification Center, but if you don't want to wait until Fall (probably October) for it's release (or are planning not to upgrade), iQuick Tweet for iPhone is here! iQuick Tweet allows you to swipe down Notification Center, tap the notification, and send a tweet!

Once you open up iQuick Tweet for the first time and exit, you will instantly be sent a notification after closing the app. This notification will say "Send a Tweet" and will appear in your Notification Center. Tapping the notification will launch iQuick Tweet with the compose screen open and ready to go. After you send the Tweet and exit (or cancel and exit) you will immediately be sent another notification ensuring that you always have a notification ready to go to quickly send a tweet.

Another little, yet convenient, feature of iQuick Tweet is that if you regularly use a specific hashtag in your tweets, you can save it in iQuick Tweet so that every time you start a tweet, the hashtag is added to your tweet automatically.

To keep your iQuick Tweet notification at the top of Notification Center, go to Settings, then Notifications, and choose to sort apps manually. Then tap Edit and drag iQuick Tweet up to the top (perhaps below your widgets).

The good

  • Access iQuick Tweet from Notification Center
  • A new notification will be sent to Notification Center automatically upon exiting iQuick Tweet
  • Save hashtags to be automatically be added to new tweets

The bad

  • No complaints

The bottom line

I'll admit that I'm actually surprised to see that Apple allowed iQuick Tweet into the App Store with this feature. In fact, I told the developer this when he told me this version of iQuick Tweet was up for review. I'm glad to be proven wrong as this is a fantastic app. I wish I had it a long time ago!

I think this is just what I need to hopefully start using my twitter account more often. Intelliscreen X also provides this functionality but that requires jailbreak. I am excited to try iQuick.

Wow, I'm wondering how long before apple pulls this app.... Haha, but I'm still hoping for a promo code before then :p

xxTigerShark says:

My app does nearly the exact same thing but only doesn't have the notification and its free. It just needs to be enabled in the settings app and its free. Its called Quick Tweeter for the curious.

Mrjr says:

Love the recent trend of all these useful "hacks" to make everything more convenient. But it really highlights that Apple needs to do more with Notification Center.

Carsten says:

Until iOS6 it would be nice to have this kind of feature.
