Customize the iOS Music app

Did you know you can customize the tab bar at the bottom of the iOS Music app? By default, it offers tabs labeled Radio, Playlists, Artists, Songs, and More. Want to replace the Radio tab with a Genre tab? Easy. Follow the link and Kirkville will show you how.

    This is not an iOS 7 feature. It existed since iOS 5 maybe even prior to that.

      Ah, thanks for the correction Ameya. Will update the post.

      Pretty sure it’s been there since 1.0. I remember having it on my iPhone 2G.

        I started using iOS pretty late so I don’t know about iOS 1.0

    I forgot you could do that. Cool. I wish they would give you the option to hide the artwork in Artist view. In Album view, the artwork makes more sense. But in Artist view it’s just needless eye candy, IMO, and requires more scrolling. Oh well.

    I can’t believe this is an actual post. You’ve been able to do that for as long as I can remember. It’s not new, nor is it some kind of trick.
