Popular MiniPlayer Tweak Updated With Search and Seek Features
Many of you jailbreakers out there are probably familiar with the MiniPlayer
jailbreak tweak, a popular iTunes 11-like MiniPlayer for iOS by iOS developer MPow and graphic designer Surenix. The tweak was released at the beginning of May, and since then, has only been getting more improvements.
The latest update, version 2.2, brings some useful new features to MiniPlayer. Users can now search for songs right from the MiniPlayer by tapping on a magnifying glass button and then typing in something that the user wants to listen to. The user can then tap on one of the search results to begin playing the song. The search results list auto-collapses as you refine your search, which is a great feature for both aesthetics and usability.
In addition to search, the developers are implemented a music seek feature, which allows the user to scrub through a song using the progress bar just like you can in the Music application. This is perfect for when you want to skip part of a song and get right to the good part, like that guitar solo you’ve been dying to hear all day long! To scrub, the user simply needs to put their finger on the progress bar knob and drag to the desired part of the song.
The update includes some bug fixes to help with the overall stability and user experience of MiniPlayer.
If you own MiniPlayer already, the update is available for free to you in Cydia – just make sure you refresh your sources prior to trying to search for the update, or else you won't find it. Alternatively, if you don't own MiniPlayer yet, you can download the latest version of MiniPlayer from Cydia's BigBoss repository for just $1.99.
