LSMediaControls: Control Music Simply By Swiping Your Lock Screen

I have to admit, I really didn’t see much of a need for LSMediaControls in my jailbreak repertoire…until I happened to use it while driving.

My experience using this tweak while on the road has opened my eyes to how incredibly useful it can be.

No longer do you need to glance at the iPhone to make sure you’re tapping the right button.

LSMediaControls makes it simple to play, pause, skip and listen to previous music, from virtually any music app. Check inside for the video details…


The LS in LSMediaControls, stands for lock screen. To use this tweak, you simply swipe backward or forward on your lock screen in order to skip or play previous tracks, and a double tap on the lock screen will play or pause the music.

Since the tweak allows you to swipe anywhere on the lock screen, there’s no need to actually look at the screen while controlling your tunes; hence, making it the perfect driving companion.

LSMediaControls is a free jailbreak tweak available on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Let me know your thoughts on it below.
