[Review] Music Widget (For Dashboard X)
If you checked out our review of Dashboard X, the new iOS widget management platform for iOS by iOS developer Ori Kadosh, then take a peek at another free Dashboard X-exclusive widget, which is also by Ori Kadosh. The new widget is Music Widget and it can be used to control your music from your home screen and even display the album artwork to brighten up your home screen.
The music widget is exclusively for Dashboard X, so it won’t work with Notification Center the way that iOS’ widgets do. Conversely, most if not all Notification Center widgets will work with Dashboard X. The music widget's controls are simple – offering three music control buttons, you can move forward and back through your songs and also pause and play music. Apart from the album artwork, the widget also shows you the name of the song at the bottom of the widget in white text.
What’s great about this Dashboard X widget is that it’s not bogged down to simply the Music application that Apple loads onto every iOS device. Instead, you can freely use any music application you want such as Spotify, Pandora, or Grooveshark as some examples. The only restriction it has is requiring iOS 5.
Graphically, the widget looks very nice on the home screen. It includes a semi-transparent border around the album artworks and since Dashboard X auto-aligns the widgets to the center of the screen, you don’t have to worry about it appearing on the screen awkwardly. Since the widget is free, if you like listening to music and you own Dashboard X, then this widget is a great addition to the platform and seems to work perfectly.
Name: Music Widget (for Dashboard X)
Requirements: iOS 5, Dashboard X

Does this have some sort of conflict with the 'Switchy' tweak??

Might be a stupid question but this can do per page then?Have a random themeing/jaku question? Hit me up on twitter to avoid an off topic post. I am glad to help.

It's showing all 3 tags on my 3GS, Don't know if that's how it should be.
And the widget is too big for me, it's taking to much space.

Everytime I try to download something from the "addons Dashboard x" it comes up with a http/1.1 403 forbidden error. Anyone know what to do about this?
