Whenever I’m alone or feel a bit sad, music is my best option to either heal the pain or enjoy every moment. Fortunately, the revamped Music app on my iPhone boasts of all the advanced features to let me remain entertained with tons of fantastic songs.

Being a music lover, I like customizing the stock Music app on my iOS device. Jailbreak tweaks have always been great in terms of not just bringing some cool dimensions to the app but also fine tuning it in accordance with my taste.

Proton Cydia Tweak

While looking for a good Cydia tweak to let me augment music experience on my iPhone, I stumbled up Proton. With the impressive design, fluid animations, the tweak did charm me at first sight.

Unsnapped and Snapped Mode

Proton Cydia tweak has two forms. Unsnapped mode is the one where floating icon hovers around with the album art of whatever you are listening. Snapped Mode consists of floating widget which has a few options built into it such as, play and pause buttons, forward and backward buttons, the name of the artist playing, the name of the song playing, the art of the album work as a background etc.

There is an option to switch between snapped and unsnapped mode easily. You can play or pause music by tapping on the unsnapped mode.

Plenty of Options to Configure

There are a lot of options to configure the tweak as per your need. Once you have installed it, launch Settings app, look for the tweak and tap on it. The preference pane will open, where you will get so many options like, enabling or disabling the tweak, viewing the gestures available in the tweak, selecting how the Proton UI is colored in accordance with the album artwork and more.

  • Enable or disable the tweak as per need.
  • View the gestures available in the tweak.
  • Selecting how the Proton UI is colored based on the album artwork.
  • The option to configure a size for the Snapped “Proton” mode icon.
  • Keep the interface hidden when no media is playing at all.
  • Dismiss interface automatically when not in use.
  • Selecting the timeout period before Proton is hidden automatically.
  • Allow the tweak look for updates automatically.
  • Reset all settings to factory defaults.

Options to hide the interface when no media is playing or dismiss it automatically when not in use are really handy. And I’m sure you’ll find them quite user-friendly as well.


Proton has the quality to let you spice up your listening music experience. If you are looking for a tweak to help you rev up the way you listen or control music, it can be a good option.
