NowListening iPod tweak for iOS 5!
i <3 this tweak!
A jailbreak tweak called “NowListening” has just been released in the Cydia Store, which adds banner notifications for the Music app in iOS 5.
If you often listen to music in “Shuffle” mode, you’ll find this tweak incredibly useful – the notifications appear when a new song within the Music app starts playing, meaning you can quickly check your iPhone if you’re unsure of the song. There’s no way to enable this feature in Notification Center without jailbreaking and installing this tweak.
One downside to the app is that it doesn’t support third-party music applications, like the Spotify iPhone app, meaning that it’ll only show notifications for music played from within the built-in Music app.
The good news though is that NowListening is available to download in Cydia for free. Take a look at the tweak now, and for information on jailbreaking under iOS 5, take a look at our how-to guide.
