Thread: 'OnTapMusic' Brings Universal Music Controls to the iOS 8 Reachability Interface

    Default 'OnTapMusic' Brings Universal Music Controls to the iOS 8 Reachability Interface

    Whether you're a fan of Apple's Music application, Spotify, Google's Google Play Music application, or almost any other music player out there that you can think of, you can benefit from a new free jailbreak tweak called OnTapMusic by iOS developer CPDigitalDarkroom if your device supports Touch ID and Reachability.

    OnTapMusic brings music controls to the empty space in the Reachability user interface in iOS 8, as shown above. This interface is typically only accessible on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but with a jailbreak tweak called ReachAll, you can access Reachability on every iOS device, whether it's the iPhone 5s's Touch ID function, or an Activator gesture on a non-Touch ID iOS 8 device. This will also give you access to OnTapMusic on devices that don't typically support Reachability.

    Moreover, the developer recommends installing another free jailbreak tweak called Pushability in conjunction with OnTapMusic. We showed you Pushability back in January, and if you recall, it makes Reachability content easier to interact with by moving the Reachability interface to the bottom of the screen instead of being at the top. Although this makes the Reachability functionality useless, this tweak combination re-purposes the Reachability interface for a quick way to access music controls in a beautiful way.

    Here is what OnTapMusic looks like when used with Pushability:

    OnTapMusic gives you access to pause/play functionality, forward/backward functionality, song scrubbing, and also audio volume.

    The tweak also adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can enable or disable the tweak, as well as configure a custom album art corner radius, and more:

    If you're interested in giving OnTapMusic a try, it's available for free in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now. The tweak requires iOS 8 to be used.

    I wish there was a way to stack these Reachability widgets so I didn't have to pick.

    Just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man!
