At last you can go to sleep and wake up listening to your own music.
You can build your own playlists within P.A.C. by adding individual songs but it’s probably easier to create 2 new playlists in iTunes - something nice & relaxing to lull you off to sleep and something a little bit more energetic to wake you with a smile. Then you can easily add all the songs in one go.
Just tap on the Sleep or Wake areas of the screen and the panels will slide open, switching those functions on and allowing you to set up your playlists and configure your options.
Sleep: choose your playlist then decide how long it will take for the music to fade out. You can choose as many songs as you like. If you only choose a few songs to listen to, P.A.C will simply repeat them as required for the duration of the time you've specified. Tap the time display to dim the screen.
The progress bar shows at a glance the time period you've chosen and how far through it you are.
Wake: set the time you want to wake up and how long you want the music to fade in for this time in seconds rather than minutes). Random play means you don't have to wake up to the same song every morning. You can also choose to activate the snooze function.
You can use P.A.C however you like: to listen to music as you go to sleep and/or as an alarm clock or just a night stand clock. It's easy to see which features are turned on or off at a glance.
Note 1: P.A.C doesn't make copies of your songs - it just references them in your iPod library, so if you delete the songs from your phone, P.A.C won't be able to find them. That's why it's a good idea to create a couple of playlists specially for P.A.C.
Note 2: We've just posted a comprehensive set of FAQs (which is available from within the app itself - click the 'i' button - or by clicking the support link below). If you're having any problems with P.A.C please check them out or contact us before leaving a negative comment.
Note 3: A bug in OS 3.0 prevents 3rd party apps from linking to podcasts - we're looking into it but might have to wait for Apple to fix it.
URGENT NOTE: If you're having a problem setting the Wake Playlist this can be solved by changing your device's Region Format (Settings > General > International) to United Kingdom, then launching P.A.C. Everything should then work properly and you can reset your Region Format to your chosen setting.
