A good app, but...

This app does most everything you’d want from a standard monitoring app, it monitors and documents the nightly cycles. The graphics are cool. It needs the option to use music from your music library to wake up to. The big thing it doesn’t do, which is why it isn’t my main sleep app, is it does not work with Apple Health. Not sure why this wasn’t included, but is needed!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. The app provides 750 naturally-recorded high quality sounds and this is the focus vs. playing music. You can wake up in a rainstorm by a stream, or by the ocean, and if still sleeping, have birds or other nature sounds ease you gently awake. Please give the custom 6-sound wake-up sequences a try!

Recent changes to the app are improvements. But there's still more to do.
- Why is there no option to start the alarm with vibration and no sound? Isn't that the point of offering a vibrate option?
- The graphs are OK. As I have suggested directly to the developers, it is possible to roll much of the information in the graphs into one graph. The most useful thing to me would be to see a graph with a floating baseline so I could instantly see my bed times and wake-up times, length of sleep and quality of sleep in one graph. A sleep app I used previously had this until the developers "improved" it and removed this most useful graph.
- Make the font sizes bigger and bolder. Some of us are old. I'm not breaking out my reading glasses to read my sleep data.
- I've used other sleep apps that showed I don't always have the same sleep pattern. With this one, it's always pretty much the same. I think your algorithm could be improved.
- Your data shows that I'm awake far more than my body tells me I am. With other sleep apps, I've regularly had efficiency in the 90s, but sometimes lower. With this app, I'm pretty much always in the high 70s.
- I think a hard-edge color graph would be more useful. Supposedly, the peaks are when the app thinks I'm awake, but there's no line or color marker that indicates awake.

It's possible! Set your alarm time, switch vibration on, and slide the volume slider to the left. Alarm volume is independent of the current system volume. Or you can create a custom wake-up sequence with only vibration and no sound. Awake is shown at the top of the graphs in orange, blue at the bottom indicates sleep. Please contact us and we'd be glad to help further.

Jury’s still out...

I paid for this nice fancy alarm and cannot for the life of me figure out how to set it for 6:00! All it lets me do is input the number of hours I would like to sleep, but I have to actually get up to get my son on the bus.

Developer Response ,

To set the alarm, move the white ball around the clock. Please contact us in the app via “Questions or Feedback”, we’d be glad to help with other questions.
