DozeGuard

DozeGuard

 

Description

Do you like to listen to audio books, music and podcasts?

From time to time, you're dozing off while listening to your favorite audio title?

You're annoyed at skimming though the whole title to locate the position where you dozed off?

* Then DozeGuard is for you! *

DozeGuard lets you select and play audio titles from your media library and notices when you're dozing off while listening.

If you didn't move for some time, DozeGuard assumes you felt asleep and stops the current title after storing the current position.

Next time when you select a title which has been stopped, DozeGuard offers to quickly jump to the position of the last device move and to the position where the title was stopped.

Thus, you only have to skim through the title from the position of the last move to that of the automatic stop to find the point where to resume your listening.

You're free to use the built-in iPod app and DozeGuard alternately, the both are independent of each other.

If you want to give DozeGuard a try, then load the free DozeGuard Lite. The Lite version will stop after 10 minutes and allows to select 2 titles only.

A few details

* You can choose the time interval in which DozeGuard expects you to move the device between 1 and 30 minutes (no edgy shaking necessary, simply move it gently).

* DozeGuard reminds you to confirm your alertness by playing a pleasant triad 30, 20 and 10 seconds before the automatic stop.

* The screen is dimmed 30 seconds after the last interaction to minimize distraction.

* DozeGuard keeps a list of the last 10 titles which were automatically stopped.

* DozeGuard stores the list of selected titles and activates it at the next start.

Simple, useful. But basic functionality keeps disappearing.

UPDATE to my update of 12/26/10

Finally got a version with a fix for 4.2 (it seems to stop working with each iOS update), but still no chimes UPDATE - if the phone is set to silent. I would use this app every night, if only it worked! What's the deal? This is not a new problem. Please give us the app we paid for! UPDATE I set my phone to silent at night to avoid all sorts of beeps and chimes, not to mention ringing. But obviously, DozeGuard should ignore that setting and play the chimes no matter what.

I will gladly change my rating back to 4 stars if this is fixed. Now I give it two because at least it lets me create temporary "playlists" that I can use during the day, when exercising or whatever.

=================
Update October 8, 2010

New version fixes iOS4 problems with playlist and status not being saved, but once again chimes are missing. (They were back for a while.) Also, it would be great if this app respected the Pause button on my headset. Instead, pressing pause indeed pauses DozeGuard, but then starts playing whatever might have been paused earlier from the iPod app. The only way to get the DG app playing again is to manually hit its pause/play button, which means fumbling for the phone etc. It does pause and restart after an incoming call, but not if I use the Pause button on the headset manually. Finally, I wish there was a way to see what was already in my queue, add/delete/edit etc. Oh, and enable searching when looking for stuff to add to the queue!

=======================

Updated March 30, 2010 -- my birthday!

Just downloaded the new version, and podcasts have been added. YAY! However, I am not hearing the little chimes at 30, 20, and 10 seconds before it turns off, which the help indicates I will hear. Maybe those have been added for audio books only, and not yet podcasts? Anyway, I will use this almost every night, as I lull myself to sleep while listening to a podcast. If you want to resume listening to a track the next night, you can start either from where it stopped or from where it last knew you were still awake (last device move). Well worth the price!

=============

Brilliant idea. Most of my audio listening is podcasts, though, not audiobooks. Add ability to select podcasts and this becomes a 5-star app for me.
