There is one thing we miss from the previous version of Apple’s iOS6, and that is the ability to quickly share something via Twitter and Facebook using the control centre. In iOS6 you could swipe down and simply press on the Twitter or Facebook icon, type your message and send it. This ability is missing in the new iOS7.

Luckily there is a way you can add them back, using CCToggles app from Cydia.


Here’s the steps via iDownloadBlog. Enable Twitter and Facebook Sharing to Control Center:

Step 1: Download CCToggles from Cydia.

Step 2: Go to Settings > CCToggles > QuickLaunches > Add Activator. This will create an “Undefined Activator” option.

Step 3: Tap “Undefined Activator” and scroll to Compose Facebook Post.

Step 4: Create another “Undefined Activator,” tap on it and select Compose Tweet.

By default, these two new sharing options will be on the second page of the app shortcuts in Control Center. You can change their position by tapping the Edit button in Settings > CCToggles > QuickLaunches.

You don’t have to have these share actions in the app shortcuts. You can have them next to the toggles at the top of Control Center instead.

Now you can quickly share to Facebook and Twitter directly from Control Center. To do so, simply pull up Control Center and tap on either Twitter or Facebook. The stock share sheet will then appear, letting you share your message to the selected social network.
