3 iPhone Apps To Help you Sleep Better

The Smart Alarm Clock

Although waking up early has tons of benefits, nobody enjoys being jolted awake during a deep sleep by a buzzing alarm. The Smart Alarm Clock app measures the stage of sleep you’re in and will wake you up at the most optimal time during your sleep cycle. This free app comes with 10 included wake-up tunes, or you can use your iTunes library.

How to use this app:

  • Set your wake-up time on the app.
  • Place the phone underneath your pillow so it can use its programmed algorithm to monitor your body movement and evaluate what stage of sleep you are in; the closer to the body, the better.
  • The alarm will wake you up during the lightest stage of sleep, so you’re able to wake up refreshed.
White Noise

Your sleep environment can help you off to slumberland, or keep you wide-eyed all night. Experts recommend using white noise as a way to drown out distracting sounds that can keep you up. The White Noise application features 40 + relaxing sounds that can help you fall asleep. At $1.99 it’s a bargain if it can leave you more refreshed and ready to take on the day.

How to use this app

  • Set your wake-up time on the app.
  • Choose one of the included sounds or environmental tracks that best suits you.
  • Lay back, relax and fall asleep. The alarm will fade in slowly at the time you set to help you wake up without being startled.
Sleep Talk Recorder

Sleep talking can be a funny habit, but babbling can also keep everyone else up at night. And even though sleep talking is common and generally harmless, in certain cases it could be a sign of a more serious health condition or sleeping disorder. The Sleep Talk Recorder app records you, or your offending bed-mate throughout the night so you can playback the little secrets talked about during sleep. And you can easily make back the $.99 you’ll spend on the app in bribery from the offender.

How to use this app

  • Open the app and press the record button.
  • Let the phone sit by your bedside to record any sleep talking throughout the night.

When you wake up, listen to the recording to see what was said the night before.

Although there is little research into the effectiveness of these apps, many happy customers have reported experiencing better sleep while using them. So give them a shot if you’re not able to sleep well throughout the night, and check out these 14 reasons why you may not be getting the rest you need.
