How to Add Whatsapp to the Sharing List in iOS 7 Control Center

Whatsapp has been one of the most used applications, no matter what platform you are on. Willing to bet here but 9 out of 10 users download Whatsapp within the first ten applications they download after picking a new smartphone. With no ads, a very affordable pricing per year and with cross platform integration, Whatsapp is an absolute ruler when it comes to the way we communicate.


However, not just for text messaging, Whatsapp has become a great medium to share images across with your friends quickly. When Apple added several options of sharing things in iOS 7, the optimist in us expected Apple would add the option to share via Whatsapp too at some stage. However, that did not happen and as a result we are back to relying on a good old Cydia Tweak to get the job done.

The tweak you need to download to have Whatsapp present in the iOS 7 Control Centre is called Activity Pro. The tweak is available for free if you have a jailbroken iPhone with Cydia installed. The tweak simply adds the option of sharing via Whatsapp or even Line to your Control Centre when you open the same in the apps such as Whatsapp and Line. You can simply pick a picture in the gallery, and open Control Centre to share it with your Whatsapp contact. Not just images, the integration also works wonderfully well with text or notes files, so in case you have written a long kickass essay, you can share the same on whatspp. A very interesting as well as a useful tweak.
