    Default 'SimpleCCMedia' Simplifies the Media Interface in iOS 8's Control Center

    Control Center's music controls are intended to give you quick access to controlling your music when it's playing. Unfortunately, not all of us use our devices for music, and when we do, the interface still continues to look like a big mess.

    A new free jailbreak tweak called SimpleCCMedia is now available in Cydia for free compliments of iOS developer Rabih M. The purpose of this tweak is to simplify Control Center by hiding the music controls from Control Center when there is no media playing.

    Additionally, if you do have media playing, you will notice that the media controls from Control Center are still nixed from the interface, but the song name will display, along with the artist, as shown above. The idea behind this tweak is to create a more simplified interface by removing all those buttons that you may or may not use.

    Keep in mind, however, that you can still tap on the name of the song to visit the application that is playing the media, so you're not completely deprived of music controls. The only caveat is that you can't just access them from Control Center like you normally could and that you'll be re-directed to the application playing your media instead.

    If you want to give SimpleCCMedia a try, it's available for free in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now. It's also an open source jailbreak tweak, which means the developer has made the source code open for viewing by the public eye you can check it out on GitHub at this link. There are no options to configure and the tweak only works on iPhones and iPod touches (not iPads) running iOS 8.
