Get a bigger album album artwork image in Control Center
Accessing Music controls via Control Center is definitely something we all find very efficient and time saving. Besides the Music controls, your Control Center interface shows the album artwork of any song playing.
If you think there’s room for improvement in the way the album illustration is displayed in your Control Center interface, you might want to try a new free jailbreak tweak called BiggieSmallcc by candoizo.
The tweak enlarges the album artwork to make it better fit the interface, which looks definitely much better on large-screened devices. However, the developer ensured the tweak has the best results possible on any screen size. You may though get slightly different results from the example image on a 5.5 inch display if you own a device with a different screen size.
It may seem that tweak doesn’t make a big visible difference, but it actually reduces that empty space between your Music controls and uses it to proportionally enlarge the album artwork image. It has a nice effect overall, especially if you enjoy seeing your album artwork images in more detail.
Once installed on your device, the tweak can be enabled or disabled on demand from its preferences pane in the Settings app.
Despite the fact that BiggieSmallcc doesn’t bring any additional feature to the way your Control center Music interface functions, it has a really nice aesthetic effect overall. As mentioned by the developer, it works with most other music tweaks including Acapella III, which can make your music experience on iOS devices more creative and exciting.
BiggieSmallcc for iOS 10 is ready to be installed for free on jailbroken devices from Cydia’s BigBoss repository.
Get rid of the background mask effect from Spotlight search results
For those jailbreak users who are interested in a much better looking Spotlight, there is a new free tweak called No Spotlight BG Mask by Justin Petkovic that changes a minor detail in your Spotlight, yet it has a major effect on its appearance.
The tweak removes the background masks of your Spotlight search results, the effect being an increased level of transparency and a simplified look.
As you can see in the picture, the result is a better looking user interface for those who think that Spotlight’s usual appearance is too busy to the eyes.
No Spotlight BG Mask can be enabled or disabled on demand in the preferences pane it add to your Settings app. A respring button provides with a way to save your changes. The tweak has only an aesthetic effect, so don’t expect any difference in the way Spotlight works.
It’s definitely worth a try to see if this tweak improves Spotlight’s appearance, but it’s certainly a matter of personal preference. Most probably, minimalists or generally users who are keen on simplest looks for their devices would enjoy this tweak. No Spotlight BG Mask can be downloaded for free from Cydia’s BigBoss repository and it works on both jailbroken iOS 9 and iOS 10 devices.
