lullaby

If you listen to music regularly before going to sleep, you should probably check out a new tweak called Lullaby. Brought to you by the same developer who created Hermes and Acute, Lullaby ensures that the music playing on your device stops automatically after a set amount of time. Lullaby can also be used for other purposes as well such as while exercising.

The tweak allows users to set the number of minutes after which they want the Music app to automatically stop playing a song. To achieve this, Lullaby makes use of Activator in order to bring up a pop-up box where you can manually enter the number of minutes. After the timer ends, the music will automatically stop playing without requiring you to pause it manually.

Once you have installed the tweak, you’ll have to set an Activator gesture to get started. Upon invoking Lullaby through Activator, a box will pop-up asking you to enter the timer. Once done, the music will stop playing after the timer ends.

Lullaby works perfectly with the stock Music app, but it doesn’t work with third party apps such as Spotify. Also, I sometimes noticed that it causes my device to lag a lot after setting a timer. Although it’s a useful tweak and can be used for various other purposes as well, I’m not sure it’s worth the price, especially since iOS offers a similar feature which can be achieved through the stock Clock app.

Personally, I wouldn’t recommend you to buy it because of the reason that I mentioned earlier. Yet, if you’re interested to give Lullaby a try, you can purchase it from Cydia for $0.99.

What do you think of Lullaby? Is it worth the price or should it be free? Let us know in the comments section below.

  • Why not just use the timer in the Clock.app ?

    • You know, I thought the same thing, but then I remembered that one big downside of using the stock Timer is that you have to remember to set the alert tone back to something other than “stop playing media” or else, the day you really need a timer, it won’t ring.

      I know this first hand because it happens to me all the time. I set the timer to shut off my music after a certain amount of time, then next day I’m cooking and set a timer, but the timer never rings because it is still set to “stop playing media” rather than ring a tone.

      Clock app works for stock apps but for the voice dream app it does not work.

      wow! had been using the iPhone for a few years now and never knew of this feature!

  • This might be pretty useful if you listen to music to fall asleep.

    This would actually be useful if you could set a time in the settings and just activate the timer via activator, so when you’re nearly asleep you just have to push a button to set the timer for another ten minutes. I really miss JalJaYo.. :-/
