If you use your Music application a lot and find having access to your music anywhere to be a useful feature, then a new jailbreak tweak called PowerMusic MiniPlayer
by iOS developer MPow
is something you will definitely want to check out.
PowerMusic MiniPlayer adds an intuitive album browser right to your lock screen, which literally displays all of the albums you have available in your Music application’s library. You can tap on one of the albums to display all of the songs in that album, and then tap on the song to play it. The album browser can be hidden or shown on demand with the little music button in the top-left-hand corner of the lock screen next to the clock.
While you're on the lock screen, you can take advantage of gestures to control your music. You can double-tap to play and pause music, as well as swipe left or right to navigate through your library. You can also swipe up or down to adjust your volume level.
PowerMusic MiniPlayer also gives you an optional Notification Center widget, which can be enabled or disabled by dragging the widget in and out of Notification Center from the Notifications preferences pane. The Notification Center widget comes with buttons that you can use to play, pause, and navigate through your music. The list button on the right will display your albums when tapped, and the box on the left will show the album artwork of the currently-playing song:
You’ll be able to easily enable or disable the lock screen music controls and music gestures from the preferences pane if you so choose to:
In many ways, PowerMusic MiniPlayer competes with [uel=http://modmyi.com/content/10025-music-controls-pro-6-0-now-beta-upgrade-music-controls-pro.html]Music Controls Pro 6.0+[/url], which just went into beta a little while ago. The major difference is price, where PowerMusic MiniPlayer is just $1, while Music Controls Pro 6.0+ is $3.99 while in beta and will soon rise to $5.99. Music Controls Pro 6.0+ will, however, be getting a lot more features than PowerMusic MiniPlayer has in the future as it moves out of the beta stages.
The tweak is impressive, and works with iOS 5 and iOS 6. Unfortunately, it only has support for the stock Music application. If you use the Music application a lot on your iOS device(s), then PowerMusic MiniPlayer is right up your alley!
