SleepBot – Using your Android phone’s accelerator, the motion tracker from SleepBot keeps track of your sleeping cycles and records sound levels. It provides tables with all your sleep history, including the whole duration, wake time or even the amount of sleep you lost. Oh, and it’s totally free!

The app makes use of your smartphone’s sensors, detecting all your movements during the night, collecting data and using it in order to set an alarm that goes off in the perfect moment, just when your full sleep cycle is over.
