Listen to audiobooks or podcasts in bed? Tired of waking up hours later and having to spend minutes to find out where you nodded off? iTired solves this problem by doing an alertness check every few minutes. If you don't respond, it stops playback and optionally rewinds to the time you were last alert. A simple solution to an annoying problem.


- Playback may be paused/started and rewound 30 seconds via in-app controls.

- Controls are hidden when playing to avoid accidental use. Just single tap on the screen to bring them back.

- Configurable alertness check time and expiry notification lead time.

- Configurable alertness sound.

- Configurable auto-rewind. Some like to rewind a bit to find their spot instead of listening to some stuff they've already heard.

- Prove alertness by double tapping, shaking the device, or adjusting the device volume.

- When listening in the dark, the screen contrast can be adjusted via a vertical swipe.

- Works with the screen locked though double tapping and shaking will not prove alertness. Volume adjustment still does.

To use iTired, use the Music/iPod app to select your audio for playback prior to launching the application. Note that iTired cannot interact with apps that are playing the sound directly (e.g. the Audible app). You need to be using the builtin Music/iPod app. We'd love to be able to but it's not possible currently. You can start and pause playback in the application but there's no facility for selecting what you listen to.

A more detailed manual for the app may be found by following the support URL.

What's New in Version 1.4

Volume adjustment now acts as proof of alertness. Works with the screen locked too. For those that listen in the dark, this is a great way to use iTired without lighting up the room.

Alert sounds trimmed to ensure they play each second when screen is locked.

Worth It

This app works exactly as described. I have already recommended it to friends. It's just what I needed, and is likely to be my most-used app.
