iRemix – New iPhone App Enhances the Built-in iPod App [jailbreak apps]

iRemix iPhone app

iRemix for the iPhone and iPod touch enhances your iPod experience with some features you have always wanted and some new ones you will fall in love with. It seamlessly integrates with the iPod and is built to let you access the songs, artists, albums and playlists you want faster than ever.

That ‘s the description of the new (jailbreak) iPhone app, iRemix , “ which adds some handy little extra features to the built-in iPod app.  I ‘m very much still a rookie when it comes to using iTunes and the iPod app for music “ having only fairly recently started using them heavily “ but I ‘ve found the extras offered up by iRemix to be quite nice to have around.

The app lets you do things like:

Favorites: add items to favorites with just two taps, one to bring up the iRemix menu, and one to tap Add to Favorites.  Things you can add to favorites include: songs, artists, playlists, and podcasts.

Tap and Hold to Add: tapping and holding on a song or artist brings up buttons to add items to the On the Go playlist or to Favorites.

Search: an effort to make searching in the iPod app faster.  Tap on the top bar / panel of the app on any screen and it brings up search with the keyboard already invoked.

Bookmarks: Lets you mark a particular point within a song or a podcast.  I can ‘t see myself using this at all for songs, but for podcasts this seems very helpful.  This is done via one tap on the bookmarks button added to the Now Playing screen (see screencap below).

Artist Info: Tap on the ‘i ‘ icon on the Now Playing screen to bring up one tap buttons to go out to the web for Artist Info, Album Info, Music videos, and Lyrics search.

As mentioned earlier, I ‘m quite a novice user of the iPod app and iTunes in general.  Since I am now using them heavily just about every day though, I am liking the look of this app so far.  I particularly like that it adds a little bit of functionality to the existing iPod app, rather than offering these features but forcing you to open a separate app to make use of them.

iRemix is available in the jailbreak Cydia app store now.  You can give it a go on a five day trial, or purchase it for $4.99 when you ‘re ready.
