Add An Elegant Music Control Widget to Notification Center
Music widgets are far from scarce in the Cydia store, but they are very useful for anyone that likes music. What sets them apart is their design, sometimes even their functionality. Today, you will find a new music widget in the Cydia store dubbed Quick Player for Notification Center by iOS developer Ansel. Moreover, it’s completely free and it looks great!
As long as you’re not listening to any music, the widget will blatantly show to you that there is “no music playing.” As soon as you start listening to music, as long as it’s from your stock Music application by Apple, you will find music controls in the widget including the ability to shuffle your music, move forward or back through your songs, play or pause or music, or repeat your music. It also displays the song you are listening to and the artist of the song at the top.
Since the widget does require you to be listening to music from the stock Music application, those of you that prefer to use Spotify, Pandora, or even Grooveshark (just to name a few) won’t be able to use the music widget to its full potential. We would love to see support for these applications in a future update.
Like all Notification Center widgets, you can easily enable and disable the widget by pulling it in and out of Notification Center from the Notifications preferences pane in the Settings application:
The widget focuses on simple design to look great and it isn’t bombarded by ads and extraneous details that we know Apple would never throw into their design. Because of this, people paying close attention to design will appreciate this widget’s simplicity.
Lack of support for third party music applications killed it for me, since I am a Spotify user, but there are still a handful of iOS users out there that use Apple’s Music application to enjoy their music and would appreciate this widget. If you’re interested in trying it, make sure you're running iOS 5 and refresh your Cydia sources to check it out!

i think the dev made a grammar mistake. shouldn't it say 'not playing music'' or ''no music is playing'' instead of 'no playing music''.

Jukebox works real well and looks nice in the notification center...
Oh yeah and Jukebox works with Pandora... Not sure about other music players though... Jukebox also shows album artwork... My favorite though is that if u are on shuffle on your iPod app and go to your NC you can have a sneak peek as to what song is going to come on next...

Ok I have been looking for a new music player tweak either in cydia or AppStore FOREVER and I decided to finally comment and see if anyone knows if the tweak I need exists already. I am looking for either a new audio player or a tweak to the stock music app that allows me to SEEK! It's so difficult to scroll with your finger to find a place in a long audio track or radio show. I am also looking to have the "rewind play and forward" button more apart so the wrong one isn't accidentally pressed. Does anyone know of anything that does this?

It doesn't need to be a sentence my friend. It just needs to make sense.
If you think what you just typed sounds right then clearly you don't understand English very well.
