Sleep alarm
Hiripple on 10/13/2017
Very great app!
Might not wake you up!
ardentlyapril on 10/12/2017
This app didn't set off the alarm twice! I woke up on my own, with it still "on" later than it was supposed to wake me up.
lilwhitelily on 10/8/2017
In need of customizable tiles (adding in a nap or changing drinking into nicotine) and being able to add notes from the day like how many hours you worked, just somewhere you can type. If that would of been the case I would use it could be the only app that blends everything together and organize. Still looking for something to do that. In fact if those were premium benefits than I would become one really quickly.
the loraxxxxx on 10/3/2017
I use it every night and I can feel the difference waking up at the peak of my sleep cycle. The only thing I wish is that you can use Apple Music songs as alarms, instead of only ones you can purchase.
Stopped working
WillieWillis on 10/3/2017
After several months of working perfectly, the app stopped working (no alarm and no sleep tracking.)I looked for an update & found no new updates. I tried to find a technical assistance link from the app and website but couldn’t find a connection to get help. I loved it while it worked but now I’d better set an actual alarm.
Great app!
A fond user on 10/1/2017
The promise is in the name, and so far I haven’t been disappointed. I’ve tried every app like this one that I could find on the App Store, and this is by far “the best bank for its buck” I’m sure you could find one that has more features, but for a monthly subscription. It does what it promises and wakes me up when I’m already close to waking, and it’s gotten me to work on time every day that I’ve used it. I feel significantly better on mornings when I use Sleep Better than on mornings when I don’t. Great app. The only thing I wish they’d change is more comprehensive sleep statistics and information. I don’t know what some of their charts mean. For instance, how do they calculate my sleep efficiency? To me, 96% sleep efficiency should mean that I wake up feeling peppy and walking on sunshine. While I have woken up feeling much better most nights, there have been one or two mornings when I woke up feeling groggy because I’d only allowed myself five hours of sleep (not the app’s fault) and it still said I had 96-98% sleep efficiency. That doesn’t make sense to me unless they just mean out of the little sleep I happened to get that night. Overall, a great app, and I highly recommend it.
Brianderson6 on 10/1/2017
Love the app but wish I could play music and still get an accurate rating
Great App!
Crooner II on 9/29/2017
I love this app!
Best two dollars I ever spent
deepseafrank on 9/27/2017
I wondered whether or not an app like this could actually work. To my utter amazement, it did, and performed better than expected. Integrated dream journal, and the whole app is simply intuitive in its layout and usage. So I bought the upgrade, and wow, what a world of extras and enhancements this facilitated! Most useful to me is the moon phase correlation, and to my utter delight, the app correctly determined last night's lunar phase on its own, leaving no chance of error due to user input. The app did all of this seamlessly and automatically and integrated lunar data into the dream diary and sleep stats. Frankly, I am stunned: a useful and ingenious app that just works, no fiddlin' or tinkerin' required! My praise and thanks to the developers!
Just two nights...
Estellenuit on 9/26/2017
Not quite sure how this works yet..? It looks like a great idea for my fibro, & hopefully will help. I definitely love the idea of tracking dreams!!! I often have very colorful, & creative, lovely dreams! So I'm still exploring, & fascinated, with hope! 🤔🤗😴💤
Muy bueno

Fácil de usar
Paid app and they still put ads
Kevin C Pride on 9/25/2017
What the hell do you mean running ads on a paid app? I want my money immediately. If you want more money build a better app. I’m so sick of these greedy developers coming out with same app as everybody else and try to charge for it and then run ads. Don’t download. Full screen ads show every time you open the app.
Was broken. Now requires login.
RequiredTextHere on 9/21/2017
This app hasn't tracked sleep quality in months. They broke it in the previous update. The latest update 9/20/17 says they fixed it. Except now it requires a login. Useless. I'm done.
Jravalos on 9/21/2017
I must admit that the "smart" alarm clock in this app actually wakes me up at the right time. I do feel a difference. However, the app hasn't been updated in a long time. It should suggest time to go to bed like "bedtime" in iPhone, and also select the number of hours you want to sleep. In addition, it would be awesome if white noise or sounds that help fall asleep were added to the app.
GetBeter on 9/18/2017
Tracking impact of caffeine and alcohol has helped make better choices on when to use eith
Messes up Bluetooth
KLR-Kody on 9/18/2017
I like to listen to music or an audio book with my bluetooth so I don't disturb my girlfriend. As soon as I activate this app it makes my phone unable to play audio through a connected bluetooth device. I have verified it is this app causing it. This is very annoying. Could it be made to only do this when it's time to activate the alarm or to give an option on if it does this or not?
Simple to use; very clear results…
jennjenn1010 on 9/15/2017
I've only use this app for two nights, but it's been very interesting. Are used sleep well, that was an about automobile accident first day of 2013. I'm doing great, but struggling with sleep. This is an amazing tool to assist me and keeping track of what's going on so I can inform my doctor. On top of that, it's fun!
Stopped working
Keisenbraun on 9/14/2017
I have used this for a long time and have always liked it. But the alarm doesn't always work. Lately it has been more and more unreliable. The app will be running and tracking my sleep, but the alarm doesn't go off. Since I use this as my primary alarm, I need something more reliable.
Good but not so good
Mzdramatica on 9/12/2017
I've had issues with this app, I figured that it would wake me in light sleep and I would feel refreshed like others do but I don't. It seems to be at random when I'm woken up. I love the ease of use and being able to track what levels of sleep I am in but I wanted that I'm all better feeling, and I just haven't gotten it. Is there any way to improve the sensing on the app so that it adjusts to when the BEST moment is?
Does this even work?
Haileybeann on 9/9/2017
I have notoriously bad sleep, done sleep studies and everything. I'm just a restless sleeper. I wanted to try tracking my sleep sleep to see if I could find a pattern in my habits that could be affecting my sleep quality. I was suspicious after the first night. While it did say I took 3 hours to fall asleep (pretty normal for me) it still recorded me as having a 87% sleep quality, and it was definitely a restless night. I was up, literally out of my bed, a couple of times and there didn't seem to be any indication of this on the tracking. I thought maybe it had something to do with the placement of my phone on my bed and moved it for the next night. I got pretty much the same results despite this. I decided to delete the app after a night of back-to-back nightmares, where I was startled awake probably three or four times. Not only did this not appear on the graph of the overnight review, but I got my highest sleep quality rating yet: 91%. The next day it felt like I didn't sleep at all. The only reason I gave the app two stars is because the layout is beautiful and very user-friendly, which was the only thing keeping me from deleting the app after the first night.
ann_0521 on 9/5/2017
Last time I downloaded I had the ability to check when I was awake. Now that's not possible unless I pay..? There are more advertisements now and the alarm never really goes off :( it was a good app though..
One big flaw
Abolish the train on 9/4/2017
I love this app except I was late to work twice bc the alarm didn't sound 😒
Couldn't get past the sign up stage
Rainbowunicat on 9/3/2017
I booted the app up and input everything but my age (because it was last) and it just automatically said I was too young to use it when I didn't even put my real age in yet! (??) I entered my password and it just automatically made me wait who knows how long to try again. >:(
I love it!
Blah blah Unicorn on 9/3/2017
his makes sleeping fun! I definitely recommend this app!!! It's very informative and accurate! It does ask you to pay a small fee to see extra content, and I don't know why people freak out about that. Buying an app and paying later is basically the same thing as an app asking for payment before you even download it. The one thing I wish for is more widget (i.e. Reading, lazy day, etc.) or maybe an opportunity for the viewer to make their own widgets, but I'm happy with the widgets the app provides. Those are just suggestions.
Alarm doesn't always work
WordsnStuff on 9/1/2017
There have been several times where my alarm has not sounded at the appropriate time. The other day I luckily woke up naturally at the exact time I set, saw my alarm pass the time without sounding, then as I've done times before, I'm able to reset it for a minute later and it sounds. Not good! Please fix this bug!
Turned bad
Snarkydo on 8/29/2017
I used to love this app but then it stopped working. It doesn't go off when I want it to, it doesn't track my sleep, and it signed out of my account for no reason so I lost all of my previous sleep cycles. As I said, I used to love this app.
Love this App
Jaye68 on 8/28/2017
I love this app and have had very few issues with it. I definitely recommend purchasing the paid version for the extra features it provides.
Absolutely Amazing
_Husky_Pup_ on 8/28/2017
I can't tell you how many sleep apps I've downloaded and they've all been crapy! But Sleep Better IS AMAZING! Getting the Full Verison is worth the $1.99. An alarm, a sleep tracker. Perfect I LOVE IT♥️
Catpaco on 8/25/2017
Is easy to track
Evan Little on 8/22/2017
I woke up refreshed, and it played me a happy song. This app makes me a morning person which is why I love it. I would totally recommend this!
Pretty good!
I had a good sleep and it asked me how my dream was and how I was feeling in the morning and I think that's pretty cool!
I guess
Medic loco on 8/16/2017
It definitely records data, no sure if it is completely accurate. Will continue to use it.
Hdghdgssfvcfbccv on 8/15/2017
If I move a lot in my sleep will it effect my results?
Making my phone burn up
Scarletspider97 on 8/11/2017
I love this app. It's probably one of the better ones I've had and I've used just about ever sleep app around. Only problem with this one, and a major one at that, is it's using too much power and is causing my phone to get really hot. This issue needs to be taken care of asap.
What happened?
Ltmwx on 8/10/2017
I've had this app for about a month,but just a few days ago it started doing this thing where it doesn't recurve my data. I finally decided to delete it and move on to another app.
Cant spend my money on it
Nama he123 on 8/8/2017
Great app overall, but my only issue is that it won't let me purchase the full version. Any time I try to, it just says contacting App Store and is loading forever until I close out the app and reopen it (which could be an issue with my phone and not the app. I'm not sure). I don't mind the free version because it still works great, but I'd actually like to spend money on the paid one, so kind of a lost customer on Runtastics part. Other than that, it's great!
Great app
Jimboslice555 on 8/7/2017
Hello my name is Jim and I would just like to thank the people who made this app. I have only used your app a couple of times and I can already tell that it works. Thanks to you I actually enjoy waking up. Keep up the good work!
Doesn't work
Tulorox on 8/4/2017
I have used this app for two night, and both nights it's sys I spent 100% awake. The second night the alarm kept going after I stopped it. Had to force quit the app to get the music to stop
Nice little app, but forced portrait view?
KensonPlays on 8/2/2017
I would like to use landscape mode on my iPad Pro's case. Please enable the option? Orientation Lock is off, so that's not the problem, and I guess I'll be looking into other apps.
Bogus App
lsrd on 8/1/2017
I wish for everyone to read this one first, especially if you paid for the app. You are gullible to believe your device has sensors. Test this like I did. Place your device on your kitchen table downstairs, turn sleep mode on and go to bed upstairs. In the morning the app will have a fake break down of your night's sleep. E.g. 97% sleep efficiency. 3% awake, 64% light sleep, 33% deep sleep!!! And it was nowhere near you al night to "sense" your movements or lack thereof. Go with fitbit that tracks your sleep based on your changing heart beat, not some bogus "sensor" in your device. Test it for yourself by leaving your app one night anywhere away from your bed and see how you were had.
Adegvb on 7/31/2017
App works great and is very accurate when measuring my sleep patterns and behavior! Haven't had a single crash or glitch during my use.
Great SLEEP App
MajongNut on 7/30/2017
It records everything I need to know. And it has a little note area for me to write my notes down. Not being able to fall asleep is miserable, but this app records your sleep and I can share with my doctors. How true are the recordings, that I don't know...
Mallard with a cold on 7/29/2017
Great to wake up at the right point in your sleep cycle to feel refreshed and ready.
Counselered on 7/22/2017
Works well for me. Expanding information from CPAP. At age 80 sleep is a critical part of my health care. This app provides insight into my sleep pattern that has been unavailable before.
Good app but false information
Gianna-Marie Festa on 7/21/2017
This is a good app but I stayed a wake for an hour and it logged that I was asleep for most of the time and I fell asleep and set my alarm for 9:30am it went off at 1:30pm
Insights are very helpful
Josefwla on 7/18/2017
This app is a nice tool to utilize to analyze sleeping patterns and statistics.
Awsome sleep app!!
Love math 345267 on 7/15/2017
So I was looking for a new sleep app because sleep cycle is trash and I going this one it is really great
Not my bed
Wonder Women 484 on 7/13/2017
I would have given you five stars but, is the not my bed selection for when you have sex or just like a sleepover? Also sometimes I start the app but I am like reading a book so my data would end up as 1 hour awake and I am like well I could tell you I have read a book because I can't get the premium version. So am I stuck with the 1 hour or are you going to let this book reading part happen?
Spark ark on 7/12/2017
This app is good but I think it can go deeper in detail. - It needs to have many more trends, not just the current 6 because I feel there is a lot more that affects your sleep than that - It would be cool to add a sleep sound like raindrops and stuff and set it to turn off after about 15-30 minutes Other than that the idea is great and has little competition and I think more in depth things will come and make it a great application
Not working right
Uyunrnyh on 7/8/2017
It worked the first night and now it's not working. It says to start tracking but I don't know how! I even payed the 2 dollars for the premium and still not working! Overall good app when it did work. Please help!
