This idea would implement functionality to assist with workouts or other tasks that require keeping track of time intervals. This would allow the user to create one or more intervals that alternate the volume between high and low after a specified period of time. Both volumes and durations will be set by the user. This would prevent the user from having to utilize an additional application that uses an obnoxious noise which could break user concentration or interrupt the flow of music, or continuously referencing a clock or timer. This functionality not only assist with the time intervals but would also provide users with an increase in volume when they are in need of "extra motivation" for instance.
Take for instance, running intervals on a treadmill. This user wants to run for 1 minute and walk for 2 minutes for a total of 30 minutes. The user would create an interval with a "high" and "low" volume. Let's say low is set to 25%, high is set to 50%. The user would then input the duration for both volumes which in this case will be: low set to 2 minutes, high set to 1 minutes. Once the user begins their music, this interval will begin, alternating between the two defined volumes notifying the user when to walk and run until the end of the 30 minutes.
