iOS 6 Hands-On: You Can Post To Facebook & Twitter From Notification Center


We were able to get hands-on time with iOS 6 beta, and one feature not mentioned by Apple is a new share widget. Once you set up your Twitter and/or Facebook accounts in Settings, you have access to an all new function in Notification Center. When you swipe down to reveal Notification Center, there’s a new section giving you the ability to Tap to Tweet or Tap to Post to the respective social network. There’s the same dialog as Tweeting from other apps in iOS 5, but now it’s extended to Notification Center.

It’s a neat little addition making it that much quicker to post an update. It also shows Apple very subtly and carefully introducing new widgets to Notification Center, and they look to be willing to add more at a slow pace.
