‘PodSwitcher’ available on Cydia

By , Mar 15, 2013

PodSwitcher is a jailbreak tweak available on Cydia’s BigBoss repo for $1.49. The purpose of the tweak is to allow you to interface with the stock Music app via the iPhone’s app switcher. PodSwitcher adds advanced controls that you won’t find with the stock Music controls found in the app switcher. Along with the advanced controls, you can peruse your entire music library using various built-in animations like Cover Flow, Linear, Rotary, and more. If you’ve given PodSwitcher a try, share your experience with the tweak in our comments.

    Awesome tweak. But I found it buggy at some moments and it crashed my springboard. I am sticking to Music Controls Pro for now. Hopefully, these two will be compatible with each other because for now they are just not meant to be work together.

    But what’s the advantage to just not opening the music app? You’re halfway there with the switcher open.

    • Damian W

      I believe the advantage is multitasking. You dont really exit your current app or even better you dont need to open seperate music app and switch between them. All you have to do it open switcher and navigate your music.

      I prefer music controls pro. It tops this tweak in almost every way

    Hey Jeff! What animation tweak was used when you dismissed your alert for no lyrics found???

    • bloodshed

      i believe Jeff commented about this in the video saying it’s “a nice animation”, which i suppose is a part of the tweak itself.

        Can somebody confirm this?

      • bloodshed

        it’s confirmed..i just got the tweak and that animation is a part of it.

        Aw too bad I like the animation but the tweak seems hard to use with those little buttons. You should check out ‘music controls pro 6.x’ by Phoenix3200 it is more esthically pleasing, better functionality, and

        Free trial

  • Jeff i i couldnt help notice that when you double pressed the home button it invoked the regular app awitcher. Where is your beloved Auxo? Lol

  • I just bought this and it keeps crashing my phone. Not sure what the deal is. I really want it as I think it’s very useful but it’s not working….

    • crashed my phone 3 times in 5 mintes

      • Damian W

        avoid running other tweaks which really heavily on switcher or music controls.

    Why the hell would you want to navigate your library with only coverflow?

  • Indeed sweet with spotify! I would buy in a heart beat

  • Rachana Vorn

    I had purchased it and it’s awesome tweak. But I found it buggy and crashed with my springboard and also my iphone always restart when I press any app at the notification

  • Sad it is not available for iOS 5

  • Would be better when the controls show up without tapping the tiny button.
