Each playlist will automatically play all the songs in the list. We recommend you start with the first song, hit play and set the volume to the desired level. The tracks in the playlist will play in sequence. Because the goal is to quiet the mind and get to sleep, we suggest trying one of the curated playlists created by Dreampad. We believe you will like the playlists we have created. If you have suggestions please let us know!
Create Your Own Playlist
Using Airplane Mode
The Dreampad Sleep App is best used with an internet or data usage connection, as it is a streaming app. To use the Dreampad App while on Airplane Mode you will need to download tracks to your phone's storage. Storing tracks on your phone would require a fair amount of storage space! If you wish to use airplane mode, you have two choices:
1. Download the tracks you want to play by following these steps:
a. Find the track you want, and tap the Info Icon
b. Then tap the ... icon and toggle the Download switch to On (circle should be to the right)
i. You can do this for a number of songs and add them to a Collection, and play the Collection
ii. If you like just one song, download that song and set it to repeat and it will play all night
2. Use Airplane Mode for cellular only. iPhones allow a user to turn off cellular and leave Wi-Fi on. This will allow you to turn off annoying phone calls but still stream audio. To do this, go to iPhone Settings and then enable Airplane Mode. Then, tap on Wi-Fi and enable it. Your phone will remember the last setting you chose, so next time you enable Airplane Mode, Wi-Fi will remain on.
