  • 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.


    Features

    * 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".

      Dont see how this would help you, theres no bumps to give you a feel for what you're touching.... i'd go with those other players which let you control music without looking (gesture anywhere to control) for your car, this is cosmetic.

      Cool app though, im getting it. ( maybe i can theme it to look like other old iPods =D )

      Honestly, when the iPhone was first jailbroken, and Installer was the "installer" for any and all apps, I had this idea. Now I see that I should have implemented it, for it would have been popular. . . Damn.

      I've never liked the iPod classics anyway. I don't like the way you scroll through to access you music. But regardless of that...this app seems interesting.

      I thought of the exact same thing...for my iPod touch at the time. I've got no knowledge of C though, so it was a useless idea for me.

      Cool, but if it uses those images I am betting it there are real copyright issues, especially if it is a PAID cydiastore app...

But anyway pretty cool app but I'm not gonna pay to have something with the same functionality as something I already have. (says the guy patiently waiting for the cracked version)
      So, are you condoning piracy?

      This one really got a classic touch with a classic feel. It will suit with all users of all ages and it looks unisex too. I am thinking of buying one.

      why would you want to buy it? i mean the idea is good but on a touchscreen with no phisycal buttons? your still much faster by swiping through your library.
