  • 'Pluck' Is a Great New Music Picker for the Lock Screen

    Those looking for easier music control on the lock screen should check out a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed Pluck by iOS developer rvirajm.

    As shown above, the tweak adds a new button to the lock screen next to the volume slider. The button, when tapped, displays a music picker sheet, shown below, which resembles the actual iOS 6 music application:

    The tweak comes with a preferences pane in the Settings application where the user can configure the tweak’s options to their liking. The tweak comes with the option to enable and disable the music button on demand, as well as choose whether the button shows up on the left or the right of the lock screen.

    Below we show you what the button looks like on either side of the lock screen:

    Pluck is designed to look good, as well as provide you with easy access to your music library from the lock screen. In our opinion, the tweak succeeds on both fronts. Pluck only works with the stock Music application, and not with third party music applications like Spotify, Grooveshark, or Pandora. It also requires an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 6.0 or later, as the iPad is not yet supported.

    Name: Pluck
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0
    Requirements: iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 6
    Repo: ModMyi
    Developer: rvirajm

      It'd be a very useful tweak if this would work. You can only select a song at a time. And even if you're choosing a song from an album or playlist you can't forward to the next song, which makes this tweak useless for me.

      works well with sc simple. not sure about sc4 though.

      hopefully its updated to allow forward tracks because i prefer the stock interface, but for now i'll be sticking with powermusic miniplayer.

      Great idea, good tweak, needs a little work. I found a slight battery drain and my iPhone heated up almost like it was charging. Uninstalled but I love the idea of the feature. Also it would be nice if it worked with Cyueue

      Judging from the posts above it looks like it's compatible with nothing other than itself lol

      Doesn't honor the tweak "Cyueue".

      I was so excited about this tweak until I tested those functions and realized it is worthless. Hopefully the dev will update it (even if its paid) to include full iPod functionality.

      Crossing fingers...

      Yes, this is a cool tweak and with the suggestions could even be better and I, too would donate/pay for it.

      It would be an enhancement to use this with other apps other than the stock music app.

      This tweak is awesome! I paid for tempus and removed it to use this. This tweak is way more stable and responsive! Love the activator gesture!
