How to Set a Sleep Timer on iPhone, iPad and Android?


Listening to music while being in bed is one of the most common ways of relaxations for the majority of the people. It helps us rest and fall sleep easily, so we get our headphone and play our favorite beats to unwind or relax. But we probably don’t like the idea of dozing off and leaving it playing the whole night. If so, perhaps you’d like the idea of a music sleep timer.


Sleep Timer will automatically pause the media player on your phone after a set period of time so you can go to sleep listening to music or a podcast without fear you'll wake up to a dead battery and an empty playlist.
