sleep timer mode?

Do you think it would be possible to add a sleep timer mode? Nothing sophisticated, just pause the music when the timer expires.

The currently available timers and alarm clocks try to manage their own playlists, breaking the "regular" playlist in the music player. I am looking for something like the sleep timer of the good old ipod.

Just a suggestion, of course. Regards

    Hi Harri,

    Last time I've checked any notification in iOS can't stop music, calls, ecc. The only exception is when the music and the notification belongs to the same app.

    I have to check the last iOS update but I'm quite sure there is nothing new.

    Hi Danilo,

    AFAICS all these music player apps can pause the music, regardless
    how it was started. There is even a "Music Sleep Timer" app for the
    iphone, but it doesn't look nice and it has to be kept in the

    Anyway, even without this feature 1TapAlarm is surely one of the most
    usefull apps.

    Thanx very much

    Hi Harri,

    I can pause the music if 1TapAlarm is open and running, but when your phone is locked or you are using other apps I have no control of the notifications system.

    I hope they will add more features to the notification system in future iOS releases.
