Thread: 'Acapella' is a New Music Gesture Jailbreak Tweak to Make Controls Easier

    Default 'Acapella' is a New Music Gesture Jailbreak Tweak to Make Controls Easier

    Back in February, we showed you an awesome music gesture control jailbreak tweak for iOS 7 called Gesture Music Controls by iOS developer Pat Sleuth, and as of iOS 8, Sleuth has developed a new and improved version of the tweak that he is re-branding under the name of Acapella.

    The tweak works very similarly to the Gesture Music Controls. It's a system-wide tweak that works with Control Center, the Lock Screen, and even from within the Music application itself. It removes the clutter of all the music control buttons from these interfaces to make way for tap and swipe gestures instead, as shown above.

    The many gestures that the tweak comes loaded with include:

    • Tapping on the title of a song that's playing to play or pause the song
    • Tapping on the left or right side of a song to increase or decrease the volume level
    • Swiping left or right on the song in order to move forward or backward through the playlist
    • Swiping down to bring up repeat controls
    • Swiping up to invoke sharing and social media options to share what you're listening to
    • Holding down on the left or right of a song for one second to skip 20 seconds in the respective direction
    • Holding down on the song title for one second to show the song ratings
    • Holding down on the song title from Control Center to open the now playing application
    • And more

    When there's no music playing, the Control Center music controls will show "Tap to Play" compliments of Acapella:

    The tweak also adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure a custom hashtag for social media sharing, as well as watch a tutorial video on how to use the tweak:

    If you want to give Acapella a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now for $2. If you already own Gesture Music Controls, then Acapella is a 99 upgrade. The tweak works with both iOS 7 and iOS 8. Check it out!

    Wow, pretty cool tweak. I'm willing to give this a try.
    Seems like something like this should have already something Apple offered. Chances we will see this integrated in newer iOS's seems likely IMHO.
    Personally I think that so much Apple eventually offers comes from the jailbreak community and devs like this, makes me wonder why they still battle to deter us from jailbreaking our devices.
