myTunz is a free iPhone media player app which comes with sleep timer, gesture control, searching videos on YouTube, Sharing the song on Facebook, Twitter, and email. The interface of the app is quite similar to native music player app of iPhone except for the enhanced features and black theme instead of the silver colored theme. You can choose to control media player with or without gestures whenever you want. The switching between the two is quite easy.
One interesting feature of this media player is that it comes pre-loaded with sleep timer. It means that you just need to turn on the sleep timer and you can sleep while listening to your favorite songs without worrying about the loss of battery. Another feature of the app is Playback Timer which lets you set a specific amount of time for which you want to listen to music after which media player stops playing music. This feature can prove to be really handy for listening to music in between lunch, office hours or for a little break. Other noteworthy features of this app are: Search for music on iTunes/YouTube/iPod Music Library and Share songs via Facebook/Twitter/email.
