Lyricalizer Automatically Fetches Song Lyrics In The iOS 5 Music App [Jailbreak]


It's a beautiful day.

Have you ever wanted to have access to the lyrics of your favorite tunes in the iOS Music app? Do you not want to take the time to manually add lyrics for every song in iTunes? A jailbreak tweak called Lyricalizer automatically fetches the lyrics for songs as their playing on the iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad and lets you view them right in the default Music app.

Depending on where you normally get your music, songs may already have lyrics included in the track metadata, and you’ll be able to see lyrics displayed by tapping a song’s album art while it’s playing. If you don’t have a lot of tracks with lyric data, Lyricalizer is for you.

The tweak pulls from three of the most popular online lyric databases to ensure that it can find what you need for just about any song. There are no settings to configure; simply install Lyricalizer for $1.29 in Cydia and it will fetch lyrics in the background over WiFi or 3G.

I tried playing several well-known songs from different genres as well as a few lesser-known tracks. Lyricalizer never failed. This one is a keeper.
