Jailbreak Only: HomeScreenMusic - Control Music On Your iPhone Using Home Screen Icons
A new jailbreak package to come to our attention is HomeScreenMusic, a tweak that allows users to control the playback of music on an iPhone using Home screen icons. Once installed, the tweak places a new app icon on the Home screen, and touching this icon plays and pauses music housed within the iPod application. Furthermore, if you hold down your finger on the application icon, more controls are displayed (as you can see in the above screenshot). However, as iDownloadBlog notes, some users are encountering glitches with the application. Namely, when touching the app icon, an instructions pop-up appears. This may not be something every iOS device owner encounters. Additionally, because HomeScreenMusic is a free jailbreak tweak, you're not going to lose out in downloading and installing the package. Take a look at it in Cydia now, and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
