Spin is a new jailbreak tweak that completely revamps Lock screen’s music interface.
The tweak changes the music interface on the Lock screen to a circular one, so it changes the album artwork into a circular dial, with the playhead wrapped around it. Spin works with other music apps such as Pandora, Spotify etc. It also works on the iPad.

You can also make the album artwork as the background, however it makes the user interface quite laggy. You can however disable it via the Settings app.
You will also need to remove the slide to unlock text from the Lock screen as it does go well with the revamped music interface. It also doesn’t look very good when you get a new Notification, since the interface is overlaid on the Notifications.
You also won’t be able to skip to any point in a song from the lock screen as the circular playhead doesn’t let you scrub through song so will you have to rely on the music playback controls in Control Center.

Spin is available on Cydia for $0.99. The revamped music interface is quite cool, however it needs to address some of the issues mentioned above to recommend it.
