There has been tons of music apps on the App Store and jailbreak tweaks that are really creative in the sense that they juice up the music listening experience from both visual and practical perspectives. Yet could I find a rather all-in-one music player that fulfills my needs: 1) Sharing music with album artwork; 2) Color-change based on album artwork; 3) Minimal and intuitive to use, until I received a copy of Transcynd from Compatic Arts.

Transcynd is a Music Player that is well-designed and offers important functionalities within your finger touch. The core of the user interface is Cards. There are three of them – Control, Lyrics and Share Cards. This is the first time that I try out players with this special design that is very intuitive to me and easy to use and assess what and where I need to.

We know how sad it can be to miss out on the concert of your favorite artist(s)/band, especially when they are in town. There are apps that let you book concert tickets in advance, but they don’t notify you about your favorite artists visiting town or a nearby location.

Thankfully, the gap is filled by Songkick Concerts, an app that tells you when you favorite artist/band is going to perform nearby. It scans the music library of your device to discover favorite artists, and also catches results from Last.fm, Spotify and Facebook.

Though the stock Music app on iOS presents a lot of features, some users just want to get it going right away without having to launch the app manually. If you’re one of them, you may’ve gone through some tweaks and apps that bring music controls for the library on the lock screen.

While there are different toggles available such as the ability to play, rewind and forward tracks, there’s no seek bar present, which means you have to launch the native music app if you want to get to a certain point in the track, which makes the toggles on the screen unimportant. However, LSScrubbing is a new jailbreak tweak that aims to fulfill by the gap as it’s add a seek bar to the toggles present for music on the lock screen.
