Ratings and Reviews
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.
Reliable, User Friendly, Absolutely Fantastic
I recommend this app to anyone that is remotely having trouble sleeping. I’ve legit been using this every single night for 5 years. I absolutely LOVE that I can set it every night. I use it as sort of a personal check in with myself before I sleep by including some sleep notes about my day to determine the quality of my sleep. The sleep notes are just a a check box that you can select if it applies to you that day. Examples might be: alcohol, tired, sick, worked out, period, traveled, etc. and you can add your own custom sleep notes options! It’s perfect for my short attention span so you aren’t obligated to actually journal sentences, but will have a short reference of the day to look back on months from now.
I also love the quick check in with myself after I wake up! I wake up smoothly over 30 minutes and reach for my phone which gently fades out the alarm which I pick up my phone, no button or bright light required immediately!! Once I actually decide to wake up, the app says good morning and shows me the weather once I stop the alarm, I get to select how to slept also choosing between just three buttons. Bed, medium, or great!
I highly recommend this app and I barely ever review anything unless it’s worthwhile. I pay for the annual subscription but I also used the free version for years. Both are extremely worth it. The premium allows me to keep my sleep data stored forever (or as long as I want).
It’s long overdue that I write a review for this app because I’ve been lucky enough to be grandfathered into Sleep Cycle’s pro version. I downloaded the app back when I was in high school when it was 99¢ and continue to use it almost every night (10 years later), mostly with the intention to utilize the alarm. I always had at least 2 or 3 different alarms that all failed to wake me up until I bought Sleep Cycle.
I absolutely love that I have access through the app to different sleep sounds, like ASMR or story telling, because when I listen to things through my laptop instead, it reads me as being awake and talking.
I’ve picked up on numerous hilarious sleep talking incidents with the ability to share the sound recordings with my friends and family, and I love being able to see which days of the week I need to work on getting myself to sleep more consistently and tracking the triggers that lead me to sleep better or worse.
Most of all, though, I appreciate that the company has included me, as an initial investor, in the updates throughout time. Having had the opportunity to realize what the app does for me makes me think that the least I could do is write them a good review!
