Editors’ Choice

When your alarm goes off in the morning, is your first reaction to throw it against the wall? The problem isn’t with you—it’s with your alarm clock. Thankfully, Sleep Cycle offers a clever solution for improving your rest. Rather than yanking you from your slumber at a specific minute, the app analyzes your sleep patterns, then picks the moment you’re sleeping lightest (within a half-hour window you define) to rouse you gently. Best of all, unlike some smart alarms, this one doesn’t need extra hardware or require your device to be resting on your bed: It tracks your sleep using just its microphone.

Great app! However…

I’ve been using this app on my iPad for more than 2 months now and its great! It really provides all the tools and insight you need to improve your sleep and sleep quality. The slowly increasing alarm is by far my favourite as it helps me wake up smoothly and not abruptly.

However, there is one thing that this app needs to fix (small issue), and I think it’ll make it a infinitely better. And that is creating a horizontal mode. The entire design of the app is vertical and it can be slightly frustrating waking up and having to turn your head horizontally just to look at your stats and swipe the alarm. Simply allowing the app to adjust horizontally is what will change the game for this app!

Keep it up!

Thanks so much for this thoughtful feedback on the features you like and what you'd like to see improved. We've shared it internally to help us get better! Thanks for taking the time to leave us this review and high rating!

Very little available without subscription.

The paywall that’s been put in place takes away many basic features, especially the ability to listen back to the recordings that had been taken.
If anything, why even allow the recording feature to be used just to then tell your users that you’re holding the recordings that the app takes of them behind a paywall? I find that to be very misleading, as the user is not made aware that they won’t be able to do anything with the recorded night’s sleep unless they pay something like €30 a month?!
This seems like a basic feature of the app, and while I understand that the devs wish to profit from their work, I’m not above paying for a service, but this seems like a bad decision on their end and has greatly put me off wanting to continue my use of the app.
I ask the team to please reconsider making the ability to listen to recording a basic feature OR to advertise more openly that this app is mainly a subscription based service.

Hello. Thanks for the feedback. We could certainly do better in how we communicate this. Our intention is not to be vague or surprise you with a paywall, so we'll take your feedback to heart and see what we can do to make this better. Thanks for letting us know.
