The first step to controlling a dream is realizing you are actually asleep.

To help you do that, Lucid Dreamer will play a series of audio and/or visual cues during your sleep cycles.

When you wake up, you can record your dreams with our free, secure, PIN-protected Dream Journal. Your entries can be written or voice recorded, can be tagged, and you can even log technique metrics.

If you want to get even more advanced or try additional techniques, we’ve also built Lucid Dreamer Pro ($6.99) directly into this free version:

+ Reality Checker - Stop looking at your hand, counting your toes, or whatever habit you've been trying to form. The Checker can remember to do it for you, when convenient for you, and then alert you by sound, vibration, or even notification up to 287 times per day.

+ Paralyzer - Sleep Paralysis is a state in which your mind is awake, but your body is completely asleep. This transitional state can be used to achieve lucidity and the Paralyzer can help you enter into it.

+ Da Vinci – Although hard to get used to, cycle adjustment techniques can help you be far more productive throughout the day and even experience more frequent lucid dreams. Da Vinci can help you plan, and adhere to, the best cycles for you (default: Uberman Polyphasic Sleep Cycle).

+ Custom Music Selection – Use your own audio cues, Binaural Beats, or even record your own voice for use with the Dreamer.

+ Dreamscapes, Focalizer, Subliminator – Everything you see, hear, think about, and experience throughout the day has a direct impact on the contents of your dreams. These pre-sleep visual augmentations to Lucid Dreamer are designed to help you focus and direct those contents via color psychology, focal imagery, and rapid visual stimulation.

When you’re lucid dreaming, the only limit is your own imagination.

I have one problem

This app is excellent and is everything I wanted, almost. I like the lucid dream timer but it doesn’t do what I want it to do. I want it to turn off after 10-15 seconds so that it is enough to wake me up but the lowest option is 15 minutes. Please make it so you can make the time lower because I think a lot of people could benefit from it. Would definitely give it 5 stars if that feature is added but without I don’t see any use.

I should’ve started with this

I’ve been trying to have a lucid dream for 6 years with no luck. I’ve had this app for two weeks and I just had my first completely lucid dream. I bought the full app and all the features help. The reality check reminders and the subliminator are my personal favorites. The actual lucid dreamer helps me have more dreams that I can remember and gives you opportunities to become lucid. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone trying to have a lucid dream. Finally being able to experience it has just made me so excited to go to sleep again!

Great app

This is overall a great app but needs some explanation. This is more a letter to the editor than any recommendation. Here’s my review: it’s a good app.
But, it doesn’t really explain what the timer is for (the main function of the app), how long you should be setting it for, how it works, why it works, or what it does.
I’m not really sure what the timer does, and if I don’t know what sound is going to play how do I know to look for it in my dreams?
There’s almost no explanation of the app’s purpose, there are only settings that you’re supposed to know how to do.
