'AutoLSMusicControls' Makes the Lock Screen Music Controls A Little More Convenient
Double-pressing the home button on the lock screen accesses the lock screen music controls in iOS. This is the case whether youíre in the middle of listening to music or not. A new free jailbreak tweak called AutoLSMusicControls
by iOS developer Jonathan Bailey makes the lock screen music controls just a little more intelligent.
With the tweak installed, whenever you are not playing music, you will still have to press the home button twice to access the music controls on the lock screen. However, if you are playing music, the lock screen music controls will show automatically by default, and you can press the home button twice to show the lock screen clock instead.
It makes sense to have the music controls appear automatically when you are playing music, since when youíre in the middle of playing music you will want quick access to volume, play/pause, and next/previous track controls. The great part about the tweak is how when you stop playing music, the lock screen will automatically start displaying the clock by default again.
AutoLSMusicControls is one of those subtle, but useful jailbreak tweaks that music-lovers will want on their iOS devices. The tweak also works with third-party music applications like Spotify; it doesnít come with any options to configure, and itís a free download in the BigBoss repository of Cydia.
