    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, youll 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 youre unsure of the song. Theres no way to enable this feature in Notification Center without jailbreaking and installing this tweak.

    One downside to the app is that it doesnt support third-party music applications, like the Spotify iPhone app, meaning that itll 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.
    i <3 this tweak!

    Can you call up the notification midsong, or does it only show when the track begins?

    as far as i have seen it only comes up when a song starts, literally. meaning if you press back right after a song starts, it'll pop up again

    i hope it will support 3rd party apps eventually

    Massie, not sure if i missed this in the beginning, or if it was an add on with a recent update, but by default if you hold onto the statusbar (during a song) the banner will pop up at will

    just loaded this back onto my phone, since a while ago, and noticed it now supports:

    Pandora
    Spotify
    Last.fm
    Grooveshark

    Awesome!

    Thanks for the heads up; just installed this. Funny how sometimes it's the smallest things that seem so right once you start using them.

    I'm looking for a tweak that would let me control the music from my lock screen, as I have intelliscreenX and I have to switch to the default lock screen to change music. I've tried a lot of different tweaks but none that fit my needs. Any ideas?

    if you're looking for something that is Music.app specific i use MusicCenter for NotificationCenter. i hide it in my 'Top Shelf' of ISX so it's hidden while not in use

    Plus you can Tweet (#NowPlaying) from it!
