    Hey guys. one of the newest features i love from ios 5.1 is the stop playing feature under countdown, where whatever is playing will simply stop. it's great for going to sleep so i don't have to worry about the iphone playing for 8 hours every day.

    the feature works for my regular music app, however for 2 radio apps I use ( and tunein radio), the feature doesn't work. it will stop playing for one second when the countdown reaches zero, but then it will start playing again for no apparent reason.

    does anybody know what the problem is/what i can do? i would love to have this feature work as there is a radio station on the app i would like to listen to when i go to sleep. thanks all

    5.0 called this feature Sleep iPod...they changed it now that they realized the iPod icon is gone.

    oh, so it doesn't necessarily works for other apps?

    if that's the case, then i wonder why my apps stop for a second then resume playing...UGH!

    This is a bummer. I used to use the sleep iPod feature all the time. :mad:

    Write to developer.

    Typically developer has to use a certain API.

    TuneInRadio is typically slow to implement the latest API.
