We all have a habit of listening to music throughout the day. In this ever-changing music industry, we must come up with a way to keep our iOS device updated with the latest and greatest of tracks. Almost no one uses the old traditional way of downloading and storing .MP3 files on our iPods and iPhones anymore.
Everyone uses at least one or multiple music streaming apps because not all the features we want are available in the app we like. Even so, there will always be restrictions that ties to a premium plan which cost money.
So here are a few tweaked versions of some popular music streaming apps to help you maximize your music listening experience. There is no need of a jailbroken device to install them as they can be sideloaded using Cydia Impactor.
Spotify is the most popular music streaming service on the iPhone and iPad. It provides some of the biggest collections of music that you can easily stream using your Wi-Fi or cellular data. There are two different options in the app, one is free, and the other one is called Premium.
While the Free plan from Spotify is sufficient for many users, the only notable feature that you’ll get is Shuffle play. The Premium plan on the other hands give you ad-free experience, unlimited skips, offline listening, play any track, and more.
If you don’t have enough money to purchase their subscription, the tweaked version below will allow you to get Spotify Premium for free.
SoundCloud might have lost its glory days, but that doesn’t mean no one is using their service. The app is still available on the App Store, and many artists still take advantage of this platform to get their music out to the world.
The SoundCloud++ app will give you unlimited downloads on any songs from the app, directly to your iPhone. Furthermore, it also bypasses the new geoblocking functionality.
Pandora started as a radio streaming service, but now it has fully evolved to a music streaming app. The major drawback of Pandora is that its only available in 3 countries, for now, I.E. Australia, New Zealand, and the United States.
With the Pandora++ app, you can:
- High Quality Stream
- No ads
- Download any songs from Pandora
- Unlimited skips
- No 180 minutes timeout
This app may sound new to many ears but has been operational for a while. Go with this app If you want the benefits of a radio that might not be available on your iOS device.
Music Pocket is excellent because it’s available on the App Store without any in-app purchase requirement.
Once downloaded, you can play any songs you want. Did you know that there is no Pro version of the app? Which means Music Pocket is entirely free to use.
Additional features include:
- Background playback (Listening to music while you use other apps)
- Search for your favorite artist and song titles
- Uses less of your mobile data
Just like Music Pocket, Bobby Music is also available on the App Store, and there is no need to install it via the computer. Not to mention it offers a way nicer UI.
Bobby Music is one of my personal favorites as it is very well revised. You can listen to some of the hottest songs on the Billboard charts. It also has data from previous weeks, so you don’t have to be restricted with the current ranking. The only problem is the ads, though its something that can be easily managed.
AudioTube is one of those on and off app of the App Store as it comes and goes after a period. It is currently available so grab it fast. Besides music streaming, you can use AudioTube to manage and play your video files. You can also import more music into it using iTunes on the computer.
- Shuffle and Repeat
- Uses YouTube API
- Provide 100 Top Songs from iTunes
How can I install the .IPA you provided?
I’m glad you asked. The steps below is as important as finding the tweaked version. Now that you have downloaded the ++ version, it’s time to replace it with the original app on your iOS device.
Select at least one IPA file from above. We provided you with Spotify++, SoundCloud++, and Pandora++. You can install all three of them if you want to. But the instructions below will apply for each app.
- Visit this article to download Cydia Impactor
- Open it on your computer
- Connect your iPhone or iPad to the computer
- Drag and drop the IPA file to Impactor
- Enter your Apple ID and password. (Don’t worry it’s 100% safe as it’s used by Apple servers and not Cydia Impactor)
- Wait until the app is installed on your device
- Open the Settings app > General> Profile or Device Management
- Select the tab with your Apple ID and tap Trust
