  • 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 Peláez 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".

      Nah, look at the ratio of free to paid apps in Cydia. Just now we're getting some of the people that WOULDN'T have dev'd for JB devices to actually do so.

      If every app in Cydia was paid....I couldnt justify complaining......why do people get mad when someone else wont give away their hard work? Kinda sad in my opinion, and sure some things arent worth buying to some people, so good thing no one is making them buy it.

      Still waiting on approval apparently. No reply from developer in awhile.

      I can tell you this though. I have tried it, and it lives up to exactly as advertised

      Pretty Slick.

      Sort-of, but not really ... I love my iPod Classic, and while the link you posted does have a wheel (and costs 1/2 as much) it still isn't the same. I like the menu structure and functionality of the iPod Classic ... it's not just about the wheel.

      Why doesn't he just add it to cydia before it being on the cydia store. Some cydia store apps did that
