Apple lets you control music playback on your iOS devices from the lock screen, but your options are very limited; you can play or pause tracks, and skip back and forth between them. But if you want to listen to another album, you’ll need to unlock your device and open the Music app to find it.
But not if you have Pluck installed. Pluck is a new tweak for jailbroken iOS devices that lets you access your entire music library from the lock screen.
With Pluck installed, you’ll see a small button featuring a music note alongside the volume slider when you double-tap the home button while in the lock screen. Tap this and you’ll be presented with your music library, which you can flick through to find the artist, album, or track you want to listen to.
It’s a simple tweak, but it’s one that’ll make your life much easier if you listen to a lot of music on your iOS device. Best of all, it’s completely free. Download Pluck now from Cydia’s BigBoss repository.
