People who listen to music will love the following news, today I have got for you a new recently released jailbreak tweak called MiniPlayer and it allows you to add an iTunes inspired mini player to the iPhone. The player can be easily docked on the right-side of the iPhone’s screen, and revealed with a simple tap gesture on the album artwork.
After installing MiniPlayer on your iPhone you will notice a great difference in listing to music with a great animations, and is based on a concept by Sentry, the designer behind Auxo. If you’re looking for a way to spice up the music playing experience on your iPhone, then this is a tweak that you want to check into.
MiniPlayer works so great with the stock music app, you can quickly pause/Play and more from your iPhone homescreen, all of these great features and more can be done right from the interface controls on the widget. The widget is also capable of displaying album art, album artist, and now playing song title.
Although the stock Music app has the expected compatibility, things didn’t go as well when using a 3rd party music app like Spotify. The controls worked fine as far as pausing and skipping tracks were concerned, but the album art always seemed to be out of sync while using Spotify. Most of the time it would display the album artist of the previous song instead of the currently playing song. If you’re a big Spotify user like me, then you definitely want to be aware of this shortcoming.
MiniPlayer features several options located in the Settings app. There is an option to disable the MiniPlayer while on the Lock screen, which makes sense considering there’s already album art and easily accessible Lock screen music controls built into iOS. There’s also an option to hide the MiniPlayer all together when the music is paused or you can hide the player with an Activator action.
MiniPlayer costs $2.00 on Cydia’s BigBoss repo, but can be had at a $1.00 discount if you already own the developer’s PowerMusic MiniPlayer. What do you think about MiniPlayer? Share your thoughts and comments below.
