So when my friend Matt suggested the "Sleep as an Droid" application to help me manage my sleep, I jumped on it. The application is a special alarm clock. "Sleep as an Droid" has a trial version that is good for 14 days. After the 14 day trial period, I bought the unlocked version. A month later, I am still using the application. "Sleep as an Droid" has helped me sleep better and thus feel better overall.
Here is what I like about "Sleep as an Droid":
- The alarm wakes you up gently. No longer do I wake up abruptly and jittery. First the application will start to vibrate and then slowly increase in volume.
- The alarm tracks your sleep cycles based on the sensors on your phone. You will have to set the phone on your mattress next to you, this has not been a hassle for me. Since the application is able to identify your sleep cycle, it will do its best to wake up in your light sleep cycle.
- This application keeps track of your sleep statistics (i.e., average hours of sleep, sleep cycle graph).
