'Tempus' Music Player Tweak Finally Released in Cydia
Back in December
, we showed you an upcoming jailbreak tweak dubbed Tempus
by iOS developer danyl
. The tweak is not an upcoming tweak anymore, as it has finally been made available for purchase in Cydia’s ModMyi repository for just $1.99.
Tempus changes the way the music player on the lock screen works. With it, you’ll be able to swipe side-to-side on the lock screen’s time bar to reveal the iPod controls and even a brightness slider:
You will also be able to pull down from the time bar to reveal your entire iPod music library right from your lock screen. This makes it super simple to access your music on the go without fiddling with apps or unlocking your device. From this interface, you'll have full access to music sorting, so you can find just what you want to:
When you tap on the player button from the interface above, you’ll open the Tempus music player interface, which shows you the album art for the song you’re playing, as well as important song information such as the song name, author, album, and you’ll also find music controls in this interface as well:
Tempus also comes with some options to configure, like the ability to enable or disable the tweak on demand, as well as the ability to choose between swipe gestures or use of the home button to open the interface. Tempus is worth the money if you’re a hardcore music addict, however those of you that don’t really use your iOS devices for that much music-playing won’t find the tweak to be that useful in your daily lives.
Tempus is compatible with iOS 5 and iOS 6 on all iPads, iPhones, and iPod touches that can be jailbroken.
