How do I play one song at a time on an iphone???

I have a playlist of sound effects for my daughter's birthday party loaded into an iphone that need to play at specific times. But I cannot get them to NOT play in sequence. Why can I not get one to play then stop? Then click another to play then stop?

Put each one in a separate playlist.

How about a "silent song" maybe 10 seconds long in between sound effects. this would let you hit pause and then skip the the next sound effect at the right time.

Sound Effect #1
Silent song #1
Sound Effect #2
Silent song #2
Sound Effect #3
Silent song #3

Etc

up next / clear ?
kind of a pain in the azz to do every time though

otherwise a playlist with just one song, which is also a kludge


I really haven't liked itunes since 9.5 iOS so I just don't use my ipod much any more.

Well, a playlist might not be the best for what your are trying to do because a playlist is just that, a list of songs that will be played one after the other. It's not a play stop ;)

That said, they should play in sequence as long as you don't have shuffle play engaged (swipe up from now playing card to show more options and make sure shuffle is set how you want it).

Without any additional app, there's Kurtzie's option (which seems like it would be easier to navigate then multiple playlists). There is a Siri option - if you use Siri to play the track it would only play the track requested then stop but you'd have to speak the request for each and there'd be the delay for Siri to interpret the command, reply and play the tune. Not good if timing is important or stealth needed.

How long are the effects? Maybe make them ringtones/alert sounds then play them as needed by using the Sound preferences?

We ended up using gmail. Yes. Gmail. Just clicking on the attachments in the email that i sent my wife was infinitely easier than actually using, you know, a music playing app.
