MusicLyricsShare lets jailbreakers tap and hold on Apple Music lyrics to share them

There are two types of people in this world: 1) those who listen to music because it sounds good; and 2) those who listen to music to hear and follow along with the lyrics. If the latter camp sounds like you, then chances are you might have a sudden urge to share said music lyrics from time to time.

MusicLyricsShare is a newly released and free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer ETHN that streamlines this process in Apple’s Music app by letting users tap and hold on the individual lyric blocks that appear when a song streams via Apple Music.

Lyrication v2 adds slick music lyric support iOS’ Now Playing interfaces

Music enriches our lives at a spiritual level, and that’s one of the reasons why it can be so enjoyable to turn on the radio when you’re at work or undertaking a menial task. But if you’ve ever listened to a song and couldn’t distinguish its lyrics before, then you’d understand easy access to song lyrics is such an imperative ingredient for the ideal mobile music player, much like your iPhone.

Many music streaming applications already come with lyric functions out of the box, but this only applies to when you’re in that particular app. Apple could and should make the user experience more useful by allowing lyric viewing from the Now Playing widget anywhere in iOS, and that’s one reason why a free jailbreak tweak called Lyrication v2 by iOS developer Marcel Braun exists.
