One of my biggest pet peeves is when I’m playing music in the background and I begin force-closing apps from the App Switcher only to learn that I’ve accidentally killed the Now Playing app. This frustrating experience often results in the cumbersome process of re-launching the Now Playing app and finding the track I was playing just to try and scrub back to the point where I was before prematurely killing the music.
If you’ve ever been in the same boat and understand just how irritating this experience is, then you might turn to a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called ImTrynaVibe by iOS developer PopsicleTreehouse for help, as it effectively prevents users from accidentally force-quitting the Now Playing app via the App Switcher.
The concept behind ImTrynaVibe definitely isn’t new. Just last year, we showed you a tweak called DonyKillMyMusic that did this on pwned iOS 11 and 12 devices. ImTrynaVibe essentially offers the same functionality for pwned iOS 13 devices, albeit with fewer options.
Once installed, the tweak adds a preference pane to the Settings app where you can toggle the tweak on or off on demand and choose to blacklist specific apps:
An Apply button at the top-right of the preference pane lets you save your configuration. Notably, there aren’t any app blacklisting options available as there were in the original DontKillMyMusic tweak.
It should be noted that Apple recommends against needlessly clearing your App Switcher as doing so would mean that your iPhone needs to start from scratch when reloading apps that you’ve closed. By leaving apps in the App Switcher, they can pick up where they left off from a suspended state more quickly. For some, however, force-closing all apps when they’re done using their handset is a habit.
If you think that ImTrynaVibe will help prevent you from making the silly mistake of force-quitting a Now Playing music app, then you can download the tweak for free from the Packix repository via your favorite package manager. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS 13 and 14 devices.
