Insomnia Coach is designed for Veterans, military Servicemembers, and others who are suffering from insomnia. The app is based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-i) and provides:

* a guided, weekly training plan to help you track and improve your sleep
* a sleep coach with personal feedback about your sleep and fun sleep tips
* an interactive sleep diary to help you keep track of daily changes in your sleep
* 17 tools to help you get your sleep back on track

This app is based on scientific research about how people can change their behaviors and thoughts to improve their sleep. This app does NOT replace professional care.

Insomnia Coach is designed to be used daily for 5 weeks by following the Training Plan. After that, you can continue using the app to track your sleep and maintain good sleep habits.

Insomnia Coach was created by VA’s National Center for PTSD.

Pretty Good

I’ve really been enjoying this app and I’m not even using half the features it has. I have recommended it to friends. I love entering my sleep information into the sleep diary and seeing the trends over time as I work on my sleep hygiene.

One feature I do NOT like is that the app locks all the sleep diary entries (no edits or additions) if you update your sleep time prescription even if you haven’t completed the entry for that day! It’s very frustrating because now I have unnecessary holes in my diary because I wanted to make the dialog box asking me to update those sleep times to go away.
SUGGESTION: They should have a warning box instead that says if you edit any entries for your current sleep prescription it will undo it or that edited information won’t be included after a sleep prescription has been run for that week. Either way, let me edit my sleep diary please!

Pretty Organized Tool.

It is very useful for if your concerned about having Insomnia. I was concerned about if I had it so that was the main reason why I downloaded the app. I would recommend fixing the thing in the sleep diary because I think there is a bug. This app is very educational with lots of accurate information. If you are concerned about Insomnia or trying to go to sleep then this app is a great fit for you.

Kind of Ok

*Update* Still not taking my data for days that are the worst. Went to sleep at 5:40am this morning and woke up at 5:30pm. App won’t allow me past the error box stating I entered negative hours. I went to bed in the morning and woke up in the afternoon/evening. I don’t get the app’s confusion. Needs fixing.

*Original post* When my doctor told me about this app and walked me through it I thought “wow, finally something that will work for actual insomniacs”. That thought was based on the claim that it can be used to log odd hours of sleep.

Day two came though and I found a glitch. I didn’t get to bed until 5am that morning, and slept through the day till 5:30pm. Unfortunately the log won’t accept my hours at all because it claims I’ve entered negative hours for my sleep time. No, I’m just an insomniac who crashed for a day and slept more than 12hrs. Shouldn’t be that complicated for the app to figure out.

Not sure what to do really except skip that day’s entry, but that means the data used to build my recommendations is going to be off. Not cool.
