  • 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".

      I wouldnt worry the dev, unless u mean copyright issues with the original designer of the graphics?apple will most certainly not get involved.

      Yeah obviously the iPhone interface is perfect for it's multiouch screen and apple made it really easy to use and fluid and that's why iPods and apple work so well.

      But this is just for fun imo... Just a cool toy to show to your friends a bit like lightsaber. I will not pay for it and the onslaught of paid cydia apps is starting to get ridiculous.

      Lol and that reminds me before the iPhone was revealed and even before any rumpus started to emerge I always wanted a phone with an iPod in it. I imagined it like a normal iPod classic except it would have a slide out touh screen under to type.

      I don't suppose this interface will do a better job of holding the position of my book files than the current ipod interface does. It just sucks donkey b@lls right now. I'd say 75% of the time, when I am listening to a book, leave, and go back, the ipod is not at the same time spot that I left it in a chapter, let alone the same book.

      Anyone know? Of have a solution, by chance?

      It amazes me how much of a deal you all are making over this. If some people want a little nostalgia and something cool for their phones for a measly $2, who cares? You all probably spend more money on even more frivolous things in your daily lives.

      I agree. What's the big deal? There are a lot of useless apps that are cool and this looks cool.

      Also, some earlier in this thread said something about too many paid cydia apps. The devs should get paid for their work. Wouldn't you charge someone if you could develop something like this?

      That wasn't my point. The thing is that cydia devs are starting to adopt the AppStore mentality they all want to get on board and are trying to sell anything they come up with. Some apps are good but alot of useless apps came recently. I don't mind this just finding it funny.

      This is awesome. Just add the 3rd gen iPod classic style and I will buy it.

      Maybe give it the modern iPod color interface with the 3rd gen, 4 button and scroll wheel style controls. That would be freakin great!

      3rd gen iPod was the best looking iPod IMO. I <3 the orange glowing buttons xD.

      The ONLY way this would be a usefull app is if you could use it from the lockscreen. Otherwise, it's a waste of money IMO.

      I'm just looking to games on the later versions because I've got two games for my 5.5G iPod Video sitting on my computer that can't do anything thing. Waste of $6-$10 there (not sure how much each one cost)
