LSBackView: view the back of album art on the Lock screen

By , Mar 21, 2013

LSBackView is an upcoming jailbreak tweak that allows you to view the “back” of album art for music playing via the stock Music app. This rear view of the album art allows you to switch tracks within the same album when playing music using the Music app, but this feature is not available on the Lock screen. Of course, there are Lock screen controls, but those controls are linear, only allowing to you skip each track one by one. LSBackView, on the other hand, allows you to play the exact track you want to hear from an album.

The tweak can be activated using a simple double tap gesture on the album art found on the Lock screen. Another swipe brings you back to the main album art display. Although there’s no solid ETA for LSBackView’s release, I’d imagine that it will be soon, and it will be a free download. What are your thoughts?

    I wonder if there is another activator action that can be used in the lockscreen. so it’ll be compatible with music controls pro. double tapping in the lock screen using MCP causes play/pause..

    Hopefully third party support is added to this tweak. This would be great to use with Spotify.
