    I usually use the timer to turn my music off after a certain amount of time when I'm sleeping. However, I often want to use the timer as a regular timer and sometimes I forget I have it set to "stop playing." It makes no sense that they don't have a separate timer for those two functions. Isn't one in itunes? Just last week I set a timer for 45 minutes to bake some cookies, and while it was great that the music I wasn't playing would have stopped if it had, nobody warned me my cookies were burning, had ignited, and set my kitchen on fire.

    Also, anyone wanna buy an oven?

    Except I love using Siri for timers.

    You can tell Siri: "Set an alarm for 20 minutes from now." And she (it? :confused:) will create an alarm as opposed to a countdown. Works well for me on 8.0.2/iPhone 6.

    It does clutter your alarm clock with a number of different alarms, but it'sa easy enough to erase them. Plus, you get a snooze function.

    Hope that works for you.

    Yea that's what I've been doing but it's so inelegant. Seems like something they should have right in the music app.
