Tweet from anywhere on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with TwitkaFly [jailbreak apps]

TwitkaFly allows you to tweet from virtually anywhere with a quick swipe or tap on your jailbroken iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. It will add a Twitter shortcut to your notification center pull down and allow you to program a quick gesture for composing straight through Activator. The interface is clean and very iOS 5 like. It isn't bogged down with too many buttons or cheesy graphics either.

The utility supports the following features -

  • Tweet right from anywhere using Activator
  • QuickReply to Twitter, Tweetbot, and Tweetings push notifications
  • Retweet tweets
  • Tweet Photo
  • Open links from tweets
  • Custom animations/transitions
  • Amazing notification UI
  • Tweet #NowPlayingTrack
  • Landscape mode in iPad
  • 100% retina display support
  • Blacklist users and more

Twitkafly ties into your existing Twitter app so you can handle notifications through it once you choose your client through Settings. Currently TwitkaFly supports the official Twitter app, Tweetbot, and Tweetings. I'm assuming more clients will eventually be added. It's compatible with any iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 4 or higher. The only issue I've had so far is when I link it with Tweetbot. Whenever I click a notification it re-springs my device. If I link it with Twitter or Tweetings, it works fine. Hopefully that's just a bug that'll be hammered out pretty quickly.

If you're using LockInfo or IntelliscreenX you shouldn't have any compatibility issues and it should just tie straight into your existing notification program. You'll just notice the addition of a QuickTweet button in the bottom left or right hand corner of notification center.

TwitkaFly is already available for purchase in Cydia. They've got a lite version available for free and a paid version for $1.99. Hit the link below to check it out and then let us know what you think! You can also check out more jailbreak apps and utilities in our apps, hacks, and themes forum.

Is there a way to get the shortcut icon on the lock screen for LockInfo? It's on the infoshade but not the lock screen which I think is a bit strange. Same for bitesms......
