Take Five: Never Accidentally Stop Listening to Music on Your iPhone Again

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

It's a common occurrence. You're listening to music, you put it on pause, and you end up listening to yourself breathe for an hour. Take Five offers relief, pausing your music for a while and then automatically resuming playback later.

It's super simple. If you're listening to music and need to focus on something else, instead of hitting the iPod app's dumb pause button, you just fire up Take Five. It'll pause your music for five minutes—you can set it to countdown from 30 minutes or just a few seconds—and when the time is up, no matter what you're doing on your iPhone, your music starts again.
