Disable Cover Flow in the iOS 7 Music Application With 'NoCoverFlow7'
If you're one of the many people that really doesn't like taking advantage of the Cover Flow feature in the Music application, or you're really annoyed by how it just seems to open up on you when you accidentally move your device into landscape mode, then rest assured knowing that you can completely disable the feature.
Those running iOS 5 and iOS 6 can check out a free jailbreak tweak by the name of NoCoverFlow by iOS developer Ryan Petrich
– we showed it to you back in 2012. On the other hand, if you're running iOS 7, then you can check out a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed NoCoverFlow7
by iOS developer Jason Recillo.
With this tweak installed, you can rotate your Music application in iOS 7 into landscape mode and Cover Flow will never open.
Without Cover Flow being enabled, you won't have to worry about it accidentally opening on you, and you can have one less unused feature on your iOS device. Other features of the Music application will continue to function normally.
Unfortunately, unlike Ryan Petrich's version of the tweak for iOS 5 and iOS 7, NoCoverFlow7 will not enable landscape mode in the Music application as an alternative to Cover Flow being disabled.
If you would like to give NoCoverFlow7 a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. The tweak has no options to configure, and you need to be running iOS 7 to install it.
