"My only problem with this app is it always makes me fall asleep before I finish the stories! Which I guess is the point, but I always try to make it through and never succeed!"

"I haven't slept all night without a sleep aid in ages. I've only had (slumber) for two nights, and I haven't slept like these two nights since I was a carefree kid! I have the Calm app, which also has bedtime stories, and that was ok, but still not a full night's sleep and not a lot of variety. Definitely not the control of content like this app provides. "

Best overall sleep app available.

Slumber allows you to pick from several modalities of talk oriented sleep inducing paradigms. Dream Stories are bedtime stories which guide you into sleep and relaxation. Ex: “The Deep Dive” obviously written by a scuba diver, talks you thru a dive so accurate and intense you feel you are actually experiencing the dive. With “The Distant Storm” you feel you are on a beach, w warm sun and sand at sunset, listening to the waves and watching a beautiful storm in the distance. The stories are engrossing yet very relaxing and sleep inducing. Sleep Meditations are less involved w the story line and much more involved w your body and thoughts and tensions keeping you awake. Thru breathing techniques and progressive relaxation you are in almost a state of self hypnosis and gently encouraged to let go of all thoughts and sleep. W both the Stories and the Meditations u set up your preferred background sounds which continue for as long as you choose. I usually use headphones w either my phone or my iPad, since in your background settings there are Binaural beats’ which encourage alpha stage sleep, but I sometimes just put my head near my device and listen. It’s a wonderful feeling to realize you have been sleeping and you can just turn over and go back to sleep.

Amazing sleep app

I subscribed to Calm and like their stories. The ones offered here allow the option of background sounds additionally. This is a truly life changing app. I got used to going to sleep to stories with that other app and tried this just before that renewed, which is more expensive than this app. This has taken its place and offers more around sleep specifically versus straight meditation. The options with the free app are great yet subscribing opens all the past offerings. Amazing amazing amazing with different voices and accents so you have plenty of choice. Additionally, this app offers a darker screen that is conducive to use in the dark before bed. Never harsh or bright. The pictures are soothing and relaxing and add to the calm you feel using this app. Sure, use the free one yet subscribe to support the app maker and have many more archives to explore. Excellent. Soothing. Calming. Helps me fall asleep especially when away from home. I don’t even need anything at home to fall asleep just feel comforted hearing it and having it as a routine for sleep. Sets a totally amazing mood. My spouse listens with me and has also gotten used to it in a good way and finds it soothing and comforting.

I am trialing both the Slumber App and the Calm App. I really love them both but I keep coming back to Slumber. I love that you have full control of the background sound effects. It’s also lesser expensive then the Calm App. They have a much broader selection of my favorites, Soothing Nature Sounds. The sounds are so incredibly crisp, sharp, realistic, hypnotic in a 3D sense and the selections aren’t your typical sounds you find in every other app. They really stepped outside of the box and put much time and emphasis into it.

I hate going to bed at night for my own personal reasons, however the Slumber App makes me EXCITED to go to sleep every night! I can’t wait to try out a new sound theme or cozy story when my head falls to my white down fluffy pillow:)) You have nothing to lose to just to try it out for 7 days for FREE! It’s really easy to get out of it if you choose not to keep it. I bailed on the Calm App after my trial and it was as easy as one click so I’m sure it’s the same protocol with this one, but trust me,,,,you’ll probably want to keep it:)) I’m definitely keeping this one! You guys saved my sleeping life! Thank you!!!
