Muswitch is a new free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer KyleTweak that puts simple music controls in the iOS 7 & 8 App Switcher, as shown above.

The tweak comes with the music controls themselves, which include play/pause, and next/previous buttons, and moreover, when any kind of media is playing, information about the media will be displays above and below the music controls so you know what's playing.

Muswitch supports both portrait and landscape mode on iOS 8 devices, for those that support it in the App Switcher, like the iPhone 6 Plus does. It also works with all media-playing applications, whether you're using Apple's Music application, Spotify, Rdio, Pandora, YouTube, Mobile Safari, or something else.

If you're interested in trying Muswitch, it's avialable free of cost in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now. There are no options to configure and iOS 7 or later is required to install the tweak.
