  • 'Music HUD' Gives You a Better HUD for Music

    The basic HUD (heads-up display) in iOS has always been a rather simplistic and boring element of the operating system; but not anymore, thanks to a new free jailbreak tweak called Music HUD by iOS developer Daniel Taub.

    Music HUD lets you customize the HUD to show music information when music is playing. The tweak will still continue to show the volume level when you adjust it, but rather than showing a useless volume icon, the tweak makes it so the HUD shows you the currently playing album artwork and some song information, as shown above.

    All of the configurations for this tweak are done from the preferences pane in the Settings application:

    From the tweak’s preferences, users can enable and disable a title and subtitle feature, which allows the user to customize the display of the song name, song artist, and song album right above the album art. In addition, users can enable or disable the album art showing on the HUD. The tweak also lets the user enable or disable two different gestures for playing and pausing music when the HUD is showing, which are also useful!

    In terms of appearance, the tweak honestly looks great. It also functions very well, giving the user not only a good-looking HUD, but also a functional one at that. Music HUD is a nice free mod that you can pick up right now from Cydia’s BigBoss repository.

      I thought at first this was a "Head up Display" for music/itunes or radio. It be great if we can have it in the car like Awesome HUD in the App store for speedometer which reflects the information on car windshield of speed it be nice if we can do that with track title and stuff with speed.
