Seeker is highly customizable and offers different features like:

Seeking - The sliders in the control-center and lockscreen may now be used to alter track position (or in other words - to scrub audio), for apps other than Apple's stock Music app.
Live Seek - Updates the scrubbed time concurrently with the movement of the slider. When Live Seek is disabled, the time will only be scrubbed when the user finally lifts their finger from the slider - whereas if Live Seek is enabled, the user will hear regular audio previews while the slider is being moved.

Increment Controls - Seek forwards or backwards discretely in small time intervals by tapping on podcast-style controls on either side of the toggle playback button. The increment controls support colorization through substrate extensions such as ColorFlow and CustomCover.
Media Controls - Seek forwards or backwards continuously by pressing and holding the next-track/previous-track media control buttons respectively.

Smart Previews - When scrubbing using the media controls buttons with live seeking enabled, attempts to play the 'live' audio previews slightly ahead of the final scrubbed time; such that the previews the user hears will be closer to the location from which playback will resume when the media controls buttons are released.

Smooth Seek - Smoothens the operation of the slider by supplanting Apple's 'fine scrubbing' implementation, i.e. enables high-speed scrubbing all of the time.
Round Seeker - Replaces the default slider bar with a round knob that is easier to grab and is more reminiscent of legacy iOS.

Tap-To-Seek - Simply tap anywhere along the slider to scrub immediately to the tapped location.

Hardware Increments - Provides a system-wide hardware shortcut for the same incremental-scrubbing functionality provided by the Increment Controls option. Quickly double-tap the volume-up button to increment forwards and vice versa using the volume-down button.

Increment Labels - Offers another shortcut to the incremental-scrubbing type functionality by tapping on the elapsed-time and time-remaining labels on either sides of the seeking slider.

Brightened Labels - Increases the visibility of the media titles, playback times and volume controls on the lockscreen.

Playing Label - Simply appends the name of the playing application to the now playing titles view.
