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.
