    Default 'MusicWidget' Gives You Access to Your Currently Playing Track Via the Home Screen


    Those looking for a cool way to control their music from the home screen should check out a new free jailbreak tweak called MusicWidget by iOS developer Samball.

    MusicWidget makes it so you can double-tap on the Music application icon to pull up a folder-like widget that will give you access to music controls, album artwork for the song thatís currently playing, and information about the song thatís currently playing such as the artist and the name of the song.

    Because the tweak makes you double-tap on the Music application icon to open the widget, it wonít interfere with your ability to tap on the Music application icon once to open the entire Music application. You can still do this for additional music controls and more in-depth music information.

    Exiting the widget is as simple as tapping outside of the MusicWidget interface, just like you do when exiting a folder on the home screen. MusicWidget doesn't come with any options to configure Ė just install and enjoy. MusicWidget requires an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 6.

    Name: MusicWidget
    Price: FREE
    Version: 0.1
    Repo: BigBoss
    Requirements: iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 6
    Developer: Samball
    Editor's Rating: / 3.5/5

    Would be nice if it was just on the screen and no need to tap app. Thanks for the heads up

    I found that problem. I'm hoping Velox doesn't have the same problem.

    Sadly, does not play nicely with Folder Enhancer. It seems that the widget is treated like a folder by iOS, and with Folder Enhancer on, when you double tap the Music icon and new folder opens with the Music icon in it and nothing more. Funny thing is, if you double tap the Music icon in the folder that just opened, another folder will open with the Music icon in it - and this can go on forever!

    *Beaten to it!*

    Note to self: this is nothing like what velox is going to be. The people over at iDownloadblog even have a demo video. It looks AWESOME!!
