SwipeControls: Adding Gestures For Controlling Your Music

Want to be able to control your music with gestures instead of hunting for the little buttons in the iPod app? Well, here’s how. SwipeControl available in Cydia for your jailbroken iDevice. SwipeControl is a separate app that you add your songs, albums, playlist to and allows you to swipe left, right, up, and down to control play back, tracks, and volume.

SwipeControl is just as easy to use as the stock iPod app, basically just add the songs you want to listen to and tap to play. Swipe left and right to move forward and backward through tracks. Swipe up and down to adjust the volume. You can set the sensitivity and swipe lengths, even turn on double taps for the start and stop of music.

In my usage, I was having some issues with it allowing me to swipe to go forwards to the next track. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it said no song. Hopefully they will work this bug out soon, or this may make it unusable. Let us know in the comments how it works for you.
