If you are an iOS device owner, one of the most likely applications of your device is listening to the hundreds or even thousands of your music files. While there is certainly not much that can be faulted when it comes to the stock Music application, we're quite sure that you all want an even easier way to access your songs and playlists on your iPhone and iPod touch. Well, here's a jailbreak app that music junkies will definitely like.
Introducing FoldMusic by iOS developer Ariel Aouizerate, a jailbreak that will allow you to play songs directly from home screen through creation of easily accessible folders. The neat thing about this tweak is that each folder that you create will come with its own music controls including play / pause, forward / back and a volume slider. This saves you the task of having to launch the Music app each time you need to fire up your music collection. Although this tweak only works with the stock Music app where it will retrieve its tracks, playlists, or album. It's too bad because we would love it if it can be used on third-party applications such as Spotify. Any folders created from the home screen can be easily deleted.
After installing FoldMusic, you should have a preferences pane on Settings.app where you can create the home screen playlist folders. All you need to do is to tap the plus button to start adding new folders. The content of every folder can be easily edited so it will only contain the songs that you want to listen to. FoldMusic is simply a great tweak that further enhances your music listening experience. Keep in mind that the tweak is only available on the iPhone and iPod touch with at least an iOS 5 installed.
To start using FoldMusic, you need to jailbreak your iPhone or iPod touch first. Here are some tutorials that you could use. For users who are currently in iOS 5.1.1 and want the latest untethered jailbreak, feel free to use the following guides: Absinthe | Redsn0w | Sn0wbreeze | Cinject.
