Sleep is one of the biggest factors to your health. 25% of the population is taking sleeping pills. 55% of people who sleep less than 5.5 hours a night are overweight. We developed Sleep Genius to address one of the largest health issues on the planet.
Sleep Genius is the most scientifically designed sound program for sleep in the world today. It is now available in an app for your premier health and well- being. The Sleep Genius app was created following decades of research to develop algorithms that trigger your brain into sleeping FASTER, LONGER and DEEPER than ever before.
White Noise is DANGEROUS to your health. Do not get trapped into playing waterfalls or nature sounds or plain white noise as you sleep.
The neurosensory algorithms in Sleep Genius help your brain get ready for sleep, guide your brain through each stage in the sleep cycle, and wake you with a gentle, refreshing alarm.
The Sleep Genius app was developed by experts in neuroscience, sleep, sound, and music following our research helping NASA get astronauts to sleep.
BENEFITS TO YOU: Enjoy the physical, emotional and mental benefits of a good night's sleep by letting our program help train your brain into its natural sleep rhythms.
WHAT THIS IS NOT: Not just another sleep app with static white noise and fake natural sounds that has ZERO effect on your brain's sleep centers. Nor is this just another sleep cycle or monitoring device that tells you how badly you slept…we actually help you sleep. We are the first app offing treatment for sleep deprivation.
"Finally, a scientific and neurologically sound sleep aid that is easy to use and all natural with no side effects"

Ratings and Reviews
Insomnia and Relief
I have had insomnia since I was very little and before that I was a restless sleeper. After trying several various things to get me to sleep I came upon SleepGenius back when it was still available as free for a trial run. Immediately falling in love with it and noticing direct improvement once I adjusted to the noise. I purchased said app and found one of the extra tracks helped me sleep better than the trial one.
Giving this four stars instead of five because they no longer allow a trial run or even a small trial period - say a month - and as a result when I recommend it to people they are often unwilling to purchase and waste money in case they don’t like it. Additionally, there was an update ages back that tracked your sleep pattern and asked questions and such that has since been removed. I found that I liked being able to track my sleep quality within the app and wish that it was still available.
Over a year as a paying customer and not happy with my purchase
This app is very disappointing. I wish I had never paid for it. In over a year they have not added any new tracks or even the ability to control the music volume independently of the background noise. The music starts out quietly and relaxing but seems to get louder with higher “tinny” tones after you fall asleep which then wakes you up. The help/feed back no longer works and gives you a “network connection error” When it did work numerous times I suggested that they allow the users to control the volumes separately. Never once have I gotten a response. If you look through the reviews as I have there are no developer responses to any reviews. I did give two stars because the app is good in concept as in it starts out relaxing, but even on the lowest timer it ends up waking me up and becomes annoying to the point of having to shut the app off and struggle myself back to sleep. Yes I have tried all four tracks and they all seem to have the same annoying high pitched tones.
But not a Battery Genius
I have lost track of how long I have used this app as my wake up alarm. It does a great job of that, and I find the gradual rise in sound very helpful. Love it.
That said, unless you go and consciously close the app, it runs in the background EVEN if you have no active alarms. The amount of battery it will drain is amazing. I can understand running in the background if I have an active alarm, but if not, there should be no background activity required at all.
So if you can remember to close the app every day without fail, go for it since it is a great way to wake up. If you can’t or won’t, then move on and save yourself from the irritation of your phone running out of juice early in the day.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
