  • '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

      That's odd...did you get any message after you unlocked your device? I am in the middle of switching servers right now, so I hope that nobody gets inconvenienced.

      I think I found the problem. Oh, the fun when you don't see a reason to pay the $15/mo for CPanel. Your best bet is to head into Settings and hit the 'Check License' Button.

      Unless you lost access to your old account, that doesn't seem possible. Any MCP purchases since Jan 2012 automatically entitled you to a free copy of MCP 6.x

      Sorry to say, I'm still getting the 8% battery drain with the latest update.

      So, the main purpose of the latest update, rather than successfully fix the battery drain, is to disable MCPro entirely if the user tries to disable the offending component. Hope you're still looking for the cause of the problem, as this removes my only option for using this app.

      This isn't fair. I fixed a *major* battery drain issue.

      (a feature the dev introduced in response to suggestions to disable it)
      Suggestion. Singular. Now take a guess of whose suggestion it was. Now please quit spreading around your bad advice. You've no idea what mchelper does.

      Has anyone come out with a add-on yet to give us Podcast controls in the regular music app? (1.5 speed listening, jump forw/back 15 seconds etc)


      I import several talk show mp3 files into iTunes that have the "Media Type" tag set to Music instead of Podcast. The Genre is set to Podcast, but if the Media Type isn't set to Podcast, it will show up under your Music app instead of Podcast. (meaning NO PODCAST speed listening) :-(


      So in summary, if someone could add Podcast controls in the regular Music app that would be great. (Music Control Pro should!)
      If not, I need to find an automatic way to change mp3 "Media Type" from Music to Podcast before they are imported to iTunes. (so no manual Media Type change is needed per show in tunes)
