  • iClassic: An 'iPod Classic' Player for the iPhone and iPod Touch

    UPDATE: Now Available on Cydia

    iClassic is a media player for your library, that mimics the interface of the famous iPod Classic. It will fully emulate the iPod Classic's functionality, including using the old-school Click Wheel. Unfortunately, the app will not support games in this release but it is being worked on for future updates. The app is expected to cost $2.00 from the Cydia Store.

    I spoke with Emilio PelŠez earlier today and he has informed me that this application is indeed complete and he is simply waiting on confirmation from @saurik for it to be added to the Store. So we can expect this any moment. At this point I don't have confirmation if it will be in the ModMyI repo or not but keep your eyes peeled!

    Now, I'm not entirely sure why you would want to go backwards with technological designs, but I guess for the simple fact that you can do it, makes it kinda cool. This app would be more for the fanatics who had iPods since day one or prefer the simpler navigation style. I however jumped the bandwagon much later on, but I just might have to play with this app for kicks and giggles.


    * Beautiful iPod-like interface.
    * Fully functional, math-based Click Wheel (touch detection is based on math so it acts JUST like you'd expect it to).
    * Control your music completely with the Click Wheel.
    * Browse your music library with the Click Wheel.
    * All buttons are completely functional.
    * Hold next and previous to seek forward/backward.
    * Shake to shuffle your current playing list.
    * Choose if you want the app to vibrate when you press a button (iPhone only).
    * Choose between two colors, black and white.
    * Choose if you want the statusbar to be shiny or to be "matte".

      I'll definitely be picking this up. The iPod was the biggest disappointment for me when I got my iPhone. Why lose the wheel? The very thing that defined iPods? The other thing is I like to listen to all songs by an artist sorted by album. The iPhone only lets you play them alphabetically which is retarded. So hopefully this will sort that out.

      It took me a while to figure it out, but if you are using custom home button, "doubletap://net.epelaez.iClassic" makes it come up on the double tap for me

      Just bought this and love it! I listen to of long lectures on my iPhone and if I miss a bit and need to rewind, it rewinds like 5 mins back! But with these controls it can rewind back seconds at a time. I'll definitely be using this instead of the standard iPod player on my iPhone

      Go to settings/general/home,turn ipod controls off, reenter the path in custom home button and it should work. It did for me anyways

      I dont want to open iClassic from double tapping home. I want to be able to open iClassic instead of iPod through the pop-up music controls. Like, while music is playing and you double tap the home you get the pop up controls and on the bottom of the controls it says either iPod or Close and if you hit close the pop up disappears but if you hit iPod the iPod opens. I want it so where if i hit iPod it opnens iClassic instead. Is this possible?

      :edit: Or if the MusicControls app included iClassic thatd be an solution too

      Just bought it a few hours ago. It's an interesting app, at the very least. Certainly worth consideration.

      However, did anyone else have trouble getting the "iPod Classic theme for iClassic" theme from Cydia to install correctly? I mean, it installed fine, but the application didn't change at all. I had to go into iFile and copy and paste the theme files from "/var/stash/Themes.asdf/iPodClassicTheme/Bundles/net.epelaez.iClassic" into "/var/Applications.asdf/iClassic.app" in order to make it work (which of course overwrote the original theme files, in case I ever happen to want them back). Something tells me this shouldn't be necessary. Anyone else having the same issue?

      Cool app. If there was a way to toggle between reg app so you could watch podcasts and videos, it would be the bomb!
