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.
