If I had a dime for every time a tweak was released to make accessing the Music app easier… well… I would have a lot of dimes! It seems like almost every other day a tweak is released that adds music controls somewhere. Regardless, today we have a cool tweak by the name of PodSwitcher that has been released that allows you to easily access your music library from the App Switcher.
Unlike a lot of music related tweaks that just place controls somewhere, or provide a limited view of your music library, PodSwitcher essentially integrates the Music app into the App Switcher. Simply tap the new PodSwitcher button that will appear at the top of the App Switcher upon installing the tweak and PodSwitcher will activate, showing you your entire iPod library right from the App Switcher.
PodSwitcher allows you to browse your music through Artists, Albums and Playlists, while showing you all of this in a beautiful carousel. You can also toggle shuffle, repeat, fast forward/rewind, tweet about a song, view extra info, view song lyrics and view extra info about the now playing song.
As you can see PodSwitcher is a tweak with a lot of functionality, that in my mind is finally a Cydia tweak worth paying for. There have been a lot of Cydia tweaks released recently that have really been disappointing and in my opinion should not be premium tweaks. I won’t say any names, but in my opinion a tweak should only be premium if it provides extensive functionality like in the case of PodSwitcher.
If you are interested in PodSwitcher you can find it through the BigBoss repo for $1.49. Let us know your thoughts on the tweak in the comments section below.
