Apple can’t seem to make up their mind with Control Center as it has been through many iterations since its inception in iOS 7. With iOS 10 they added another page for the music controls. This made a lot of sense for a lot of users, the first page is less cluttered and everything is easy to access. Horseshoe, by developer Andy Wiik attempts to bring back a one page Control Center to iOS.
The AirPlay and AirDrop are now combined with Night Shift on the same line, making room for the Media Controls. Tapping the Now Playing section will still open the corresponding app and if you 3D Touch on the icon it will bring up more Media Controls.
Andy released this tweak before Cydia was updated for iOS 10 and Saurik enabled purchases. Working with another developer, Carlos Perez (CPDigitalDarkroom), he was able to a sell Horseshoe through an app linked to PayPal. I’ve been told he will be pushing an update to BigBoss once he’s done adding some features that people were requesting. Here is a link to the release thread with a bit more detail.
On February 9th Andy tweeted a sneak peak at some new features he’s adding. Looks like we will get a lot of options with the next update.

Currently the version of Horseshoe I am running doesn’t have any settings to configure, so he doesn’t include a preference pane. I’d probably guess that based on the video he tweeted, all of the settings will be configured right there in the Control Center.
This is a tweak that will stay on my daily driver, combined with Noctis it creates a truly beautiful Control Center experience. Overall Horseshoe is a great tweak that does exactly what it sets out to while definitely being worth the price. It will be out on the BigBoss repo around $2.00 to $3.00 dollars.
Note: the extra toggle in my Control Center is added by a tweak called EasyRecord
