  • 'Music Controls Pro 6.0+' Now In Beta, Coming to Cydia Soon


    iOS developer phoenix3200 is testing a beta version of Music Controls Pro 6.0+ with support for iOS 6.0 and higher. Music Controls Pro is a popular way to get access to your music controls no matter where you are. For example, it adds some useful music information and controls to your App Switcher and Notification Center:



    The information includes song name, album name, artist name, album artwork, and the controls include play, pause, next, previous, AirPlay, volume, and screen brightness. As you can see, Music Controls Pro also plays nicely with the popular Auxo App Switcher tweak.

    In addition, while music is playing, you can have the name of the song appear in the Status Bar and strobe between the name of the song and the current time.



    Another great feature of Music Controls Pro 6.0+ is to be able to double-tap to play or pause music. You can also take advantage of swipe gestures to switch music tracks and adjust the volume of the device (even while the display is turned off!). When you take advantage of gestures, you'll see a heads-up-display, such as the play and pause shown above, to indicate that you've used a gesture. The gestures can be used on the lock screen, from Notification Center, and even from within the App Switcher.

    Since being able to use these gestures while the display is off can use a lot of your battery life, Music Controls Pro 6.0+ comes with a timeout feature that will end the process after a designated amount of time.

    Youíll be able to take advantage of the following options for the lock screen:


    • Enable and disable swipe gestures
    • Enable and disable double-tap gestures
    • Enable and disable the HUD
    • Enable and disable the reverse swipe
    • Enable and disable swiping while the display is off
    • Configure your timeout options
    • Hide or show album artwork


    From Notification Center portion the options, you'll be able to:


    • Enable and disable compressed mode
    • Enable and disable autohide


    From the App Switcher portion of the options, you'll be able to:


    • Choose the size of the music controls
    • Enable and disable swipe gestures


    From the Status Bar portion of the options, you'll be able to:


    • Have the indicator show play and pause, or just play, or just pause, or nothing
    • Have the Status Bar show the song title and song artist, or just the song title, or just the song artist, or neither
    • Enable or disable showing the time


    Being that Music Controls Pro 6.0+ is still in beta, itís missing a few features. Some of the features that will be added in the future include support for many third-party music applications, support for Bluetooth devices, the ability to background video media, the ability to remote control music from another device, integration with stereo docks, and other miscellaneous features.

    As long as Music Controls Pro 6.0+ is in beta, phoenix3200 is lowering the price of Music Controls Pro 6.0+ to just $3.99, instead of the usual $5.99 for new buyers. Those who bought the original Music Controls Pro before January 2012 can upgrade to Music Controls 6.0+ in beta for just $1.99, instead of the usual $2.99 upgrade price. Anyone who bought Music Controls Pro in or after January 2012 can upgrade for free.

    The beta pricing is lower than the regular pricing because the developer realizes that the tweak is missing features in the beta and is meeting his buyers half way. After the tweak is no longer in beta, the price will rise to the normal $5.99 again. The tweak will no longer be in beta when all of the future features have been added to the tweak and everything works flawlessly. If you want to try Music Controls Pro 6.0+ before buying, it comes with a 5-day trial.

    Music Controls Pro 6.0+ will hit the BigBoss repository soon.

    If you're a music junkie, then you will definitely want Music Controls Pro 6.0+. It is a little buggy in its beta stages, however if you buy it at the low price now, you'll still be able to download the non-beta version at no cost when it comes out. So take advantage of the low price while you can!

    Name: Music Controls Pro 6.0+
    Price: $3.99 (usually $5.99)
    Version: 1.0.6.1
    Requirements: iOS 6
    Repo: (BigBoss soon)
    Developer: phoenix3200

      It's working fine for me, there might be a tweak that's not playing nice with this one

      For those that MCPRO6+ crashed on did you purchase the app or you in trial mode. I was using the trial mode when it crashed.

      Not necessarily. I've been emailing phoenix3200 and although more trial users have reported crashes, a few people who purchased have had crashed. He did say that he guarantees a fix.

      $3.99 won't break the bank for me and it seems like a worthy app. Plus phoenix3200 has responding quickly to my emails so I'm just going to buy it.

      That's Encouraging. It's nice when Devs are quick to respond. I'll give It another go in a week or so...maybe some time after the next update, hopefully still @ beta price, and try again.

      Cheers

      I experienced a crash-loop when trying this in conjunction with "Switchy", which I actually prefer over Auxo. That was resolved by uninstalling Switchy.

      I then experienced a bunch of sporatic crashes when activating/dismissing the task switcher. I got stuck in another crash-loop and had to uninstal MCP in order to get out Safe Mode.

      This is on my iPhone 4S, and I just did a DFU mode restore to 6.1.1 two nights ago.

      These issues were all reported to the developer. He was also quick to respond!

      If this issue is cleared I am definitely purchasing this because I have been missing the screen-swipe functionality that I was accustomed to with SnowCover4. I was very upset to upgrade to iOS 6 and find out its no longer compatible, and the SC4 developer has not responded to my e-mail inquiring about an iOS 6 compatibility update.

      I tried this tweak last night. It made my phone crash a couple of times so I removed it for now. Once all the bugs are worked out I'm sure this'll be an awesome addition to my phone, though ^.^

      Installed this morning. Went to work. Put my phone in my locker at 97% and in airplane mode. 3 hours later it was at 86%. Seems to be draining battery. Uninstalled till someone can tell me if it was the tweak or it's a known issue and being worked on.

      I ended up purchasing MCPro6+ and have been testing it for the past hour or so and no crashes whether in lockscreen or homescreen. I used the music app and several streaming music apps like Pandora and so far no issues. This is on a 4S running 6.1 with LockInfo, Switchy, Zephyr and Auxo installed.

      So you think everyone should be upgrading yearly? So by the end of the year you're saying the iPhone 5 will be obsolete?

      I haven't gotten a crash but it did cause all my dock icons to all overlap into the space of 1 icon until I removed it. [4S, 6.1]

      Edit: This particular issue that I had described above has been since resolved.

      Also, Auxo runs much smoother on the iPhone 5. Maybe you need to update your phone.
      I hate that you can't end JUST ONE APP I mean sure I wanna end all sometimes but sometimes I just wanna end 1

      The latest update will crash if both MCPro6+ and Auxo are installed. If both are installed your dock apps and your folders will disappear. They are looking into the cause.

      Is there an ability to change to repeat or shuffle?

      The last version was a total crash-fest (for me). However the latest version appears to have fixed all that This is an excellent tweak and Im off to buy it now

      Oh and pheonix was quick to respond to my email which was also awesome
