App of the week: Sleep Cycle alarm
It’s that time of the week again. This Monday, the Geeksays App of the Week award goes to a smart application known by the name of Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock developed by Northclub AB.
Chances are that you may have some knowledge about the way we sleep together with the fact that there are certain stages of sleep for us every night, some of them stronger or lighter than others. Scientific tests along with years of research has proven that we wake up feeling fresh and great when we are in the lightest sleep phase. Awaking from a deeper phase usually leads to a long time of feeling tired, so being able to wake up at the right moment is something that all of us may want in a way or another.
Well, a smart app which uses your phone’s gyroscope and is capable of detecting how much you move during sleep, thus calculating which sleep phase you’re in may represent the answer to what needs to be done in order to wake up fresh every time. This application has a wide variety of features that make it effective, while also allowing you to see sleep graphs for every night, choose different alarm melodies and simply customize the app to a very interesting extent.
Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock can be downloaded by iOS users from here.
