  • 'MiniPlayer' Gives iOS an iTunes 11-like Mini Music Controller


    If you’re looking for a cool way to control your music from anywhere, look no further than a new jailbreak tewak called MiniPlayer by iOS developer MPow and graphic designer Surenix.

    As shown above, MiniPlayer is a music controller that can be shown or hidden at any time, from anywhere. You can access the Music MiniPlayer from the lock screen, within applications, and even from the home screen:



    You will notice the little grabbers at the right and left of the MiniPlayer. These are used to hide, show, or move the MiniPlayer around. You can hide the MiniPlayer to either the left or the right side of the display, and you can even adjust how high or low on the display that it sits:



    MiniPlayer displays the album artwork of the currently playing song, the song’s name, the album, the artist, and even includes controls, such as previous, next, play, and pause.

    From the tweak’s preferences pane in the Settings application, you will be able to adjust some options to your liking:



    From the tweak’s preferences, you get the ability to choose an Activator action to enable or disable the MiniPlayer. This will hide or show it from the display at your demand. In addition, you can choose to hide the MiniPlayer from the lock screen outright, or hide the MiniPlayer outright when there is no music playing so that it only shows when music is playing.

    With MiniPlayer’s great looks, fun animations, useful user controls, and handy options, it’s a tweak that’s sure to tickle the fancy of many of those that listen to music on their iOS devices. If you’re interested in giving MiniPlayer a shot, you will find it in Cydia’s BigBoss repository for $2.

      Between MCP6 and velox it's just not necessary, looks beautiful. But it's just not needed for me

      wow 4 comments...I guess this tweak does really suck. I bought this a couple of days ago and it says for ios 5 and ios 6. I currently am running ios 5 and this thing doesn't even work. All I get is my device going into SAFE MODE every time even when I restart it. I even contacted the developer and haven't got back to me whether or not it's going to be fixed. BEWARE OF THIS TWEAK IF YOU ARE RUNNING IOS 5. Wasted $2.00. Thanks for nothing.

      This tweak is sending my phone into a reboot loop. Anyone know of any tweaks that aren't compatible with the miniplayer?

      I found this little issue. Really it's my only issue with mini player I don't know what's wrong with the scrub feature in regard to Spotify. However, I hope it gets fixed.

      Nevermind. I found the tweak that isn't compatible.
