How to add a Velox style music widget to your iPhone right now

By , Apr 9, 2013

Itching to get your hands on Velox? You’re not alone. In the meantime, you may want to give MusicWidget (velox style) a go. It’s a free jailbreak tweak available on Cydia’s BigBoss repo, that lends Velox styled music controls to the stock Music app.

There are no settings or options to configure for MusicWidget, just install it and go. It’s a tweak that works only with iPhones running iOS 6.x. Once installed, a double tap on the Music app icon will reveal music controls in a style similar to the Velox tweak that we showed you earlier. The Music app can be anywhere on your Home screen, it doesn’t have to stay relegated to the dock.

If you decide to take it for a ride, let me know what you think about it.

    I’ll think about it once it is compatible with Spotify … then again, by that time, Velox will already be out.

      Right. Spotify, or bust if you ask me.

        What’s so great about Spotify? I feel like I’m not missing anything, but maybe I am…

    The only issue I have found is that I think its not compatible with folder enhancer. My device crashes everytime I double tap the icon from the folder or even from outside the folder.

      Over here it just opens a folder with only the music app when double tap it… Really hope Velox adds compability to it… :/

      Damn. Probably same with velox. If that tweak can’t work with folder enhancer I’m out. Sorry. I’d get it. But so much can’t work with folder enhancer and I live for that tweak. No folder enhancer support = no velox. I’d go with the badger tweak or whatever the hell it’s called first. The one Jeff covered for notifications. That one will probably work nicely with folder enhancer as see no issues with that so far. I just hate how a lot of teaks hate to work with folder enhancer. Unless its barrel or gridlock. Shame.

    It doesn’t play nice with FolderEnhancer so guess I’m removing it :(

    What’s the bubble on ur screen??

    I think that it would be in the best interest of the public to put a more distinct disclaimer at the bottom of the post letting them know that this is no way, shape, or form affiliated with Velox. This tweak was in development a while before Velox went remotely public, and as soon as the dev heard about Velox, he stopped development and released it “as is”.

      Thanks for the info, that would be nice to know from the blog…

    Great tweak works great

  • Tom Canuck

    checked it out and it’s actually quite cool. But…. I use activator heavily to handle my music, so probably won’t keep this around.

    I’ll wait for Velox

  • Michael Edwards

    Its a very good tweak, hope the developer continues to improve it

    Does Velox allow us to swipe through songs or playlists on the home screen?
