Auto ShutDown Released!

Author: ipodtouchmaster  //  Category: Apps

Do you fall asleep listening to your iPod or iPhone? While waste your battery no more! With Auto ShutDown you can setup a timer to go off that will automatically shut down, reboot etc. your device. Its easy to activate this timer also, you just hold down the power button until the power slider appears, then under that is a new slider that you can slide to enable/disable the timer.

The settings for this application are in the default preferences application, so no extra app icon taking up your screen. There are many settings to choose from. When the timer expires you can turn your device off, reboot it, or stop playing the music and lock your device (good for is you are on a tethered jailbreak).

This is very simple to use, you just set the timer and forget about it. Its a springboard class timer, so it takes only minimal processing power. After you set the timer and you are using your device, 10 seconds before the timer expires an alert will appear with a 10 second countdown before it expires. You can stop the timer by pressing the STOP button on the alert, you can also bring up the power down view and slide the slider below that to turn the timer off.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions for this application, because it would be really easy to add settings for something else to happen when the timer expires. Thanks.

    the ipod touch already has a sleep timer built in, under the “clock” app. So this program is useless to anyone with a tethered jailbreak. and all the people i know that have ipod touches never shut them down because they have a long battery life as long as the screen is off and no background apps are running.

    Great App! A suggestion would be to warn the user like 30 or 20 seconds for those who are slow to react ;)

    Why not use cron? It’s free.

  4. ipodtouchmaster Says:

    Does this sleep timer turn off your music too??

  5. ipodtouchmaster Says:

    This is a lot simpler, and i’m pretty sure cron doesn’t work on 3.0+.

  6. ipodtouchmaster Says:

    Thanks for the suggestion, Ill consider adding this as an option, an extra length countdown.

    How about iPad support? The iPad doesn’t have a sleep timer, which is very annoying.

  9. ipodtouchmaster Says:

    I do not have an iPad to test with currently, so once I obtain one I plan on adding support for it.

    If it is tethered, you should make it respring. This will kill any media that is playing such as mxtube or dtunes without a reboot.
