If you like to listen to music on your Windows Phone before sleeping, you’ve probably missed a function that automatically stops the music after a set time. This way, you could safely fall asleep without having to worry about the battery being drained by the music. Though there are some apps with similar funtionality available, they’re only compatible with the built-in Zune player – so if you’re using apps like iHeart Radio, Slacker or TuneIn Radio, you’d be out of luck.
Because of this, forum member ace10134, whom you may remember as the developer of Power Planner, has made a new app called Stop Music that does exactly what its name says. You set a time, press the button and the music that’s currently playing will stop when the timer runs out.
The only thing to keep in mind is that, due to limitations in Windows Phone 7, you have to keep the app running in the foreground before you go to sleep, else the music won’t stop. However, it is possible to turn off the screen to keep the app running under the lockscreen.
