Articon 01

Articon is a jailbreak tweak that can spice up your Home screen by adding album artwork on top of the now-playing music app. The album artwork used by Articon is the same artwork that appears in the app that you use to play music.

You might think that Articon’s effects would be limited to the stock Music app, but that isn’t the case. I was able to successfully have album artwork on my Spotify app, and even Amazon Instant Video—yep, it works with video playing apps as well.

If you’re looking for a way to change up the look of your music or video app icons, then Articon is a tweak that might interest you. Have a glance at our video walkthrough inside for more information.

Articon features a handful of options in its preferences found in the stock Settings app. You’ll find the standard kill-switch at the top of the preferences, and you’ll also find a panel for selecting the label text that appears beneath the app icons influenced by Articon.

Users can choose to display the default app labels, album name, song name, or artist name beneath the app icons. There is a downside to selecting something other than default app labels. Long titles are truncated and don’t scroll when they surpass a certain character limit.

I also wasn’t a big fan of how the album art suddenly disappears whenever opening an app infused with album artwork. It jumps back to the stock app icon in a jarring fashion, but I suppose iOS’ animations are more to blame for this flaw than anything else.

Articon 02

Despite the issues with the animations and long labels, I believe that Articon is a worthwhile tweak. It’s a nice way to spice up your Home screen, and it provides real tangible benefits to the music listener and video watcher.

You can find Articon for $0.99 on Cydia’s ModMyi repo. What do you think about it? Share your opinions down below in the comments.

      • Eni

      • Sean Keenan

        Oh my bad didn’t see the white space under the keyboard to me it blended in with the white color of the comments section

      • Eni

        that’s fine, do you know how to fix it?

      • Sean Keenan

        I don’t really know for sure how to fix that but if I had to guess I would say quit the app entirely and the reboot or Respring. Sorry for no definitive answer

      • Eni

        yeah i did so and nothing works now, mail, safari, weather they all crash

      • Vckmkr

        If u have appsync installd try temp uninstalling it and any pirate swag, if you have any that is, then run iCleaner, then got to caches in ifile and manually delete mobileinstallation.plist & the 1 file with .csstore as extension, reboot, wait 1 min whilst cache is rebuilt

      • Eni

        i deleted 2 files in ifile and everything ok now, thank you 😀

      • Svs

        I don’t know about that keyboard but for the crash try uninstalling appsync or afc2add

      • Eni

        thanks, i fixed it 🙂
