    Hi all,

    I just discovered that Music Controls (on Cydia) now supports Spotify. If, like me, you jailbroke mainly to get background music, then this is a dream come true.

    The killer features:

    a) Auto-backgrounding of music apps

    b) Popup (pause/play/forward etc.) controls for non Apple music players on double-click of home button

    c) Music art from non-Apple apps on the lock screen

    d) Music apps are automatically closed when you leave them on pause, saving battery power!


    Utterly brilliant!!

    No, I am not the author, just a very satisfied customer.

    I'm confused.... The link provided is for the beta. I just signed up myself, I'm listening to Air on spotify as we speak.

    Apparently you are seeing something different with that link than I am. I'm in US and without an invitation code to enter, the other option is enter an email for the public version when it is operational.

    Sorry guys. I am UK-based so my invites are UK-only.

    On top of that my invites have vanished! So maybe Spotify have indeed opened up access again.

    Yes, I see that the link posted above only works in the UK. Sorry guys, you US users are going to need an invite from someone else.
