    Default Combine Music and Video App to Original iPod App with Unified Ipod for iOS 5

    Go back to the good ol' days and have the one iPod.app for both music and video on iOS 5.

    Let's face it. Of all the annoying things that iOS 5 did, my number one is the separation of the Music and Video components of the iPod.app. Although I'm not a complainer by any means, I can imagine many people feel the same way. The question that always comes to me is, "why?" What was the reason for this separation? How does this make the iOS experience more user intuitive and easy to navigate through? Many of you I'm sure have asked similar why questions and can't imagine why Apple would have done this.

    Nonetheless, for those of us on iOS 5, we have to live with this separation and are continuing to wish that there was way to fix it and bring it back to the good ol' days. Well, if you're jailbroken on iOS 5, you're in luck.

    Just released in Cydia, Unified Ipod for iOS 5 does just that. With it installed, it recombines your Music and Video applications into the once again, unified iPod application. It's as simple as that. All the same functionality that the iOS 4 iPod application had was brought back and everything is back to normal. What a relief!



    Go download this now if the Music and Video applications bugged you as much as it did me! And the best part - it's free. It is compatible on only the iPhone and iPod touch running 5+ at this time. Hopefully iPad support will be added soon.

    Name: Unified Ipod for iOS 5
    Author: i beat daily
    Version: 0.0.3-5
    Price: Free

    Leap for joy? Isn't great that the jailbreak community knows how to fix things properly? Post your comments below!

    Yeah I wondered why the heck they decided to separate those. If I ever JB again I might use this, but as of right now I probably won't JB my 3GS again. I may try it whenever I get a 4S if an untethered solution is out by then.

    from what i understood, they're reasoning for separating it because it was blurring the line between ipod and iphone. they didn't want something that said "ipod" on the iphone. still a really stupid decision in my eyes, if anything just rename it to "media" instead of separating...

    I remember seeing a tweak to unify iPT's apps a long time ago, and I was hoping an iOS5 version would be released. Thank you so much for the heads up!

    I really don't care if the music and video is combined. My real concern about the music app on iOS 5 is it's not as fast and responsive as it was on iOS 4.

    Why on earth they split this to begin with is beyond me. More un-deletable BS to clutter my screen.

    Thanks Josh for pointing this out. It is the most annoying change made in IOS5. Thanks I Beat Daily for this new app.

    The separation is sooo simple, as daft as this may sound: if you have an iPhone that has a built-in "iPod" then you will probably think "I don't need an iPod, I already have one". However, if you remove the "iPod" from your iPhone then perhaps you will still buy another iPod.

    I know it sounds daft, but I bet that's why :-)
