PwnPlayer: iPhone’s ultimate media player!

Posted on Tuesday September 23rd, 2008 / 22:40

O Eric, δημιουργός του iSlsk – το οποίο παρεπιπτόντως είναι σχεδόν έτοιμο και θα κυκλοφορήσει σε λίγες ημέρες (!!), ανέπτυξε ακόμη μία καταπληκτική εφαρμογή: το PwnPlayer!

Όπως δηλώνει ο Eric (αποδίδοντας φόρο τιμής στο Pwnage της Dev Team), το PwnPlayer είναι ένας media player αποκλειστικά σχεδιασμένος για Jailbroken iPhone, ο οποίος έχει σκοπό να αντικαταστήσει πλήρως τον default media player του iPhone!

Μερικά από τα χαρακτηριστικά του PwnPlayer είναι:

- File system playback: Simply drag&drop your mp3 files using your favorite file browsing app (WinSCP, CureFTP, CyberDuck or iPhoneBrowser) or download them using iSlsk or any other music download app!

- Music Library compatibility: You can still keep using iTunes.

- Search: Search for song/artist/album/file (works both with music library and file system songs).

- Lock-Screen gesture controls: Control your PwnPlayer by swiping your finger on the lock screen, for easy handling from your pocket! (Φοβερό feature! Δείτε το video που ακολουθεί και θα καταλάβετε το γιατί…)

- CoverFlow: It works only with iTunes library for now.

- Background mode

- SpringBoard integration: PwnPlayer automatically integrates with SpringBoard. You will see the current playing song info in your lock screen, and you’ll be able to use the home double-tap shortcut to control music playback when you are in another app while PwnPlayer is running on background.

- Playlist managing: Create, edit, and remove playlists on the fly easily.

All the above will be available on its first release. Future updates will include:

- Plug-ins: Yes, if the aforementioned wasn’t enough, you will still be able to add more and more features to PwnPlayer thru it’s plug in system. Or even make your own plugins and distribute them! support for more formats, Lyrics viewer, a Last.FM scrobbler, streaming.. imagine what could be done, and that you will never see on default MobileMusicPlayer.

- Video: Currently PwnPlayer does not support video playback, but it’s one of its top priorities for future updates.

- Support for genius playlists?: I still don’t know how difficult will be to support this new feature introduced in 2.1 firmware, but yes, it might be available in future updates as well.

- Move music files between file system and music library back and forth?: well, I already said this is not available now because the new iTunesDB security checksums have not been cracked yet.. but if someday they finnally get fully reverse engineered, this will be completely possible.

Tόσο το PwnPlayer όσο και το iSlsk, αναμένονται να διατεθούν σύντομα από το Cydia…
