Fuse

Fuse is a new jailbreak tweak that allows you to combine the music controls and the Lock screen clock. This results in the ability to display both elements at once, something that’s not normally possible on stock iOS 8.

As you might imagine, Fuse is an extremely simple jailbreak tweak, and it features no options to configure. Once you install Fuse, Lock your iPhone while playing a music track. What results is a dual interface featuring the Lock screen clock and music playback controls. The music controls are relocated towards the bottom of the screen and the Lock screen clock stays in its familiar place towards the top of the Lock screen.

I’ve never been one to complain about the current behavior of the iOS Lock screen, but Fuse is a good solution for those of you who don’t wish to make compromises. You can find Fuse for free on Cydia’s BigBoss repo today.

    anybody know if it is compatible with subtle lock?

    • Zach

      Also wondering about compatibility with Atom

  • Steve R.

    Downloaded it yesterday and it’s worked well so far

  • Matt

    Pointless. It just clutters the interface IMO

  • BTW, the “press three times” statement in the video is false for most users. I have a conflict that requires me to press three times on my device, but for unmodified devices, it’s once.

      I like this a lot better than Spin. Spin may have issues ironed out now, but when I used it a few months ago i had resprings. Been using this since it showed up on BB and love it.

  • Blip dude

    Is it compatible with forecast??

    • Ali

      It is, which is great!

      • Blip dude

        Yup, it is!! But it’s not compatible with Barryc8 (overlay), and it is my second most used tweak, so I have to figure out if tweak is worth giving up handoff as now I have to install Grabby and that isn’t handoff friendly.

    Have you found a jb tweak that makes the music controls BIGGER? On the lock screen, Control Center, even in the Podcast app, I find the Play/Pause button to be too small, and also the 15 second FF and RR buttons. I listen to hours of podcasts a day and when I want to pause or play the button are tiny. Would love a tweak that had a HUGE Play/Pause button on the lockscreen. Thanks for reading this.

    I hope this is compatible with iOS 7.. this is VERY USEFUL! 😀 Thanks for posting this!
    edit: the package page in Cydia says it’s compatible.. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  • Blip dude

    Okay, so it’s compatable with Forecast, but my second most used tweak, BarryC8, is a different story. I was really hoping not to use grabby (not compatible with handoff), but I’ll see how often I use this.

    Combined with Colorflow= ingenious!
