Looking for an interesting way to control music playback on a jailbroken device? Clex for iOS 7 provides two different sidebar interfaces that can be accessed with a swipe from the side of the screen. Swipe from the left and view a list of all songs in the Music app.
Swipe from the right side of the display and playback controls appear, along with artist information and a list of songs from the same artist. In fact, both sidebar controls can be displayed at the same time, by swiping to show them both.
The left Clex menu will only appear when playback is in progress or the Music app is opened in the background. Options under settings include a toggle to disable the tweak entirely, and the ability to activate the sidebars within apps, and on the home screen or lock screen. The interface is also customizable, with options for colors, background blur or background images.
Clex requires iOS 7.1.x and only works with the stock Music app.Clex is available from the BigBoss repo on Cydia for $1.99. Jailbreak iOS 7.1.x with Pangu to start customizing iOS.
