MusicScroller adds a pop-up alphabet indicator to the Music app


Yesterday, we told you about Skippy, a new jailbreak tweak available on Ryan Petrich’s beta repo. That tweak was the result of a Reddit request to bring a pop-up HUD overlay to the scroll index in the Phone app and Contacts app.

Sadly, at least in the current release, Skippy doesn’t work for the stock Music app’s list view. But a brand new tweak called MusicScroller steps up to fill in the gaps. MusicScroller brings a simple pop-up alphabet HUD indicator to show your current location while scrolling through lists in the stock Music app.

Once you install MusicScroller it begins working immediately. There are no options or settings to configure.

Just open the stock Music app, tap the My Music tab, and scroll down until you see the index scroller on the right side of the screen. Next, slide your finger vertically on the index scroller to see the HUD pop-up indicator. MusicScroller is a simple tweak that makes it easier to gather your bearings when scrolling through long lists of music.

If you use the stock Music app, then I can unequivocally recommend Music Scroller, a free jailbreak tweak on the BigBoss repo. It makes it possible to instantly recognize where you are, it’s simple and lightweight.
