No longer works
SpyderAlice on 6/20/2017
I can't tell you how many times this "alarm clock" has failed to wake me up lately... ive been late to work at least 3 times now because of its FAILURE to go off in the morning! I paid for the premium features and now I want my money back that I paid as it's not living up to its expectations, in uninstalling this crap and finding something better that actually I don't know WORKS!!!
No restore purchases button, don't waste your money
Scatmanb on 6/19/2017
This app is great but I paid for it already a few months ago. I got a new phone and when I re-downloaded this app, it's trying to make me purchase the full version all over again. It is only 2 bucks but it's the principle of it, that these developers have no regard for the user, and that they are greedy. If they refund me I will edit my review to 5 stars.
Love It!
Faithfulc on 6/17/2017
I really love this app. It is easy to use. I like the way it breaks down the information on my night 's sleep. I have sleep apnea and it helps me see how deep I sleep and for how long. I appreciate all the information!
Great alarm!
Cheesedud6 on 6/8/2017
I used to always have trouble waking up to my alarm, but now I can wake up comfortably at any time of the morning!
Really cool app!
Urmomtooktothername on 6/5/2017
I really like the style, ease of use, and functionality of this app! It's really cool how you can use this app without having to own a smart watch/Fitbit etc. It's cool how I can see exactly how long I've been out for, how long in deep sleep, light sleep etc. Would definitely recommend to at least try it, as it's pretty unique! The one thing I would like to have is being able to wake up and change the time you get up if you feel exhausted or decide you just want to sleep some more than usual. As of now, the alarm will keep going off until you end the data collection. Sometimes I have to turn it off, but really end up sleeping for another 2 hrs, so my data is incomplete. Although maybe the point of this app for some is to take that option away so they have to get up? Idk, for me I'd be more interested in tracking a realistic time of getting up vs forcing myself to.

Instructions say to place phone under pillow as you sleep...terrible idea.
Sleep better
Pine99 on 5/31/2017
This app is great the alarm clock calmly wakes you up in the morning and it tracks your sleep every night and it even tracks movement it really helped me so I highly recommend the sleep better app
Stopped working?
Perksgal28 on 5/30/2017
In the past week or so, I've noticed that the "alarm" feature hasn't actually been working. I've been late to work twice now because the alarm feature either hasn't gone off or it is SO quiet it's barely detectable. The app is still tracking my sleep, but it's just not waking me up anymore. I *always* verify that the volume is as high as it will go, and that it is set properly, yet it doesn't actually go off. This morning I set both the app and the alarm on my phone. Only the alarm on my phone went off and it was set 10 minutes after the app was supposed to wake me. Prior to this being the case, I would have rated this app 5 stars as I've been able to see a marked improvement in both the length and quality of my sleep. I paid for this app, and I expect it to work. Fix the actual alarm feature and I'll begin using again.
Alarm Issues
Izulu-kun on 5/22/2017
I really like this app and all it stands for. I bought the full version some time ago because I could pick my own songs to use as an alarm. I much prefer that to the preset alarms in the Bedtime function of the Clock app by Apple. However, I've had repeated issues where the alarm I set for the app does not go off at all, and I end up oversleeping! I'm not sure why it does this, but I unfortunately cannot continue using the app if I can't rest assured that the alarm will wake me up...
Sasha1415 on 5/21/2017
Love this app!!!!
Doesn't work on my 7 Plus
cmdcmac on 5/21/2017
Set it up as directed each night. According to the app, I haven't slept in 3 days. Glad I didn't pay for it.
So far so good
Afrodeezha55555 on 5/19/2017
Very new user and I like the info it tracks
Doesnt track my sleep AT ALL
cpconn on 5/17/2017
I've tried this app for a few nights and without fail after a few minutes it stop tracking my sleep. it says that i slept for a little and then my phone locks and thats it. no more tracking. i wish this app worked but unfortunately ill have to delete it.
Good app
Mitzymoocow on 5/17/2017
Good app
Very helpful
La la land 5 on 5/16/2017
It's cool I can see how my daily activities affect my sleeping. Really cool alarm clock too
Doesn't work at all
Flajarkin on 5/15/2017
Jravalos on 5/13/2017
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 nice if it could track id you snore like other apps do.
Woods always on 5/7/2017
I try'ed it and it works so for now I'll try use the app more often.
It's okay
NDJH72 on 5/6/2017
Not bad doesn't track snoring, and movements.
Nice App
MrsK276 on 5/5/2017
It's interesting to see how I'm sleeping. It works with or without a wearable device, which is a bonus. I don't really like the smart alarm in the free version. You have to have it set for 30 minutes. I just use my iPhone alarm instead. No big deal. Overall it's helped me set a better bedtime and wake up time.
Can't register

Need to be able to correct the time
Larch45 on 4/29/2017
I love this app but I sometimes forget to tell it to stop. I need to be able to correct the time that I actually got out of bed. The same with going to bed. I might set it and then something stops me from actually going to bed for an hour or two, but I forget to reset the app. Correction on both ends is important.
Super happy about this app
excited1235 on 4/27/2017
Love this app I don't know why I didn't download it sooner. Accurate and easy to use.
Awake 100% of the night
mary from cleveland on 4/26/2017
This app told me I had been awake the whole time I slept the last two nights... delete
Best alarm clock
Woofythewolf on 4/26/2017
As long as it doesn't fall off my bed, this is the best alarm clock I've ever used. Not very loud, and yet by far the most effective alarm clock I've ever used for initially getting me up (and I sleep through alarms that had my neighbors pounding on the wall at 6:20 am). It's also nice waking up and not having a really loud obnoxious alarm hurting my ears.
Years Worth of Logs Gone!!!!!
zoeyluv on 4/11/2017
I went to use this app just this Friday and found that over a years worth of tracking was gone! I'm not sure what happened. Now this app is inconsistent and isn't logging properly. I am seriously thinking of deleting this app and finding a different one to use to track my sleep. So upsetting over a years worth of logs just disappeared.
Great App!
Go Dog Go 62 on 4/5/2017
I never knew how much sleep I am not getting. Don't know how efficiently is calculated, but whatever it means it is getting better.
Cool App!
Jax beach girl on 4/3/2017
I really like this app so far! My favorite feature is probably the "insights" it lets you know how a stressful day, eating late, alcohol consumption, etc., effect your sleep habits which makes me want to change my ways at night time haha!! Thanks developers you did a fiiiiiine job here :)
Apple.Pat on 4/2/2017
Cannot adjust data once entered. I just downloaded this app and it defaulted to 4/1/17. I changed the sleep time to 1 am but did not change the date. I could not go back in to fix this and the app said I had 23 hr sleep. Solid blue whatever that means. App also puts device into sleep mode during until alarm time. I missed a call from Sweden as phone did not ring.
Neat app
Dinodave80 on 3/31/2017
I had chronic insomnia growing up and still suffer with it at times never sleeping more than four hours in one setting. Now this app can't and doesn't fix anything with my insomnia but it does let me know that while I am sleeping very little in the efficiency of my sleep is quite high. This is something that I have wondered about for roughly 25 years since I started having insomniac nights. I am thankful for the peace of mind that I get knowing even though I'm sleeping so few hours it is good solid sleep.
Not bad
Mmjk17 on 3/27/2017
It wouldn't let me upgrade to full version.😕
Sleep better
Alexlamarcarson.2 on 3/27/2017
I love sleep better. I actually find out how many hours I sleep.
Link ability to Apple Watch would be great!!
HawksFly on 3/26/2017
I like this app but I'd like it better if it would link to an Apple Watch.
Otello on 3/23/2017
Muy interesante
Changed My Life!
Anna71917 on 3/23/2017
I hear about the app at an EMS conference where Dr. Tania Glenn was the keynote speaker. I immediately downloaded the app. Something that can help me sleep better, wake better, and have more energy? Sold! I paid for the premium features after the first night of sleep. I now have more energy, am getting more accomplished, and am overall a more relaxed and resilient person. Thank you for making such a life changing app!
Is it wanting to charge me?
Bellagamez 13 on 3/16/2017
Now, this app is amazing but...I bought the full version, it said the purchase was successful. And then when I go try to explore the things I can do, it says I have to buy the full version, AGAIN! Is it trying to charge me?
Awesome app
Alex. Hammy on 3/15/2017
I love this app it's really nice. It's a little bit confusing at first tho
I love it!!
Katelynn Noelle Kearney on 3/14/2017
It feels kinda weird but cool for this to track my sleeping. Helps me hone my sleeping patterns. I wish you didn't have to pay for the other cool features but that's with any app.
Mm 25.6 on 3/13/2017
I got this app and used it a lot. I tracked my nights for 12 days. I deleted the app this morning due to what it had told me in the morning. It said I got 0 hours of sleep, which I know is not true. Other times it will give me way more hours than I have actually slept. I am assuming it is just guessing and is not accurate.
Tfrez on 3/10/2017
I don't have premium so it has a wide window of wake up times. But I have been feeing more rated and it does seem more accurate than some other apps I've tried
Good app
Fomas92 on 3/9/2017
Good app
Pretty good
Sarahardell on 3/8/2017
This is an overall great app, but there is one thing that needs to be fixed. Some nights it will show that I got 0% of sleep. The percentage will glitch out and never show up. Also, another good feature to have would be a place to see your movement in your sleep :)👍🏻
I like it
Love lovelies on 3/8/2017
I like this app a lot very helpful and insightful but now I have an issue and it makes me kinda annoyed cuz I've lost all my data. On my old phone I had the app and had also paid for premium. I got a new phone two days ago and was excited to see when I downloaded the app again all my nights from January 2016 were there. I was so excited. But now my app isn't premium and I'm kinda annoyed. I don't wanna have to repay for the service I bought already.
I needed help
Kimm blaney on 3/7/2017
I truly needed help with my sleeping habits. This app really does work. I'm so happy I found it. I don't quite measure up to its standards yet but I'm working on it. It has helped with my insomnia.
Not a reliable alarm clock
Carenhs on 3/3/2017
This alarm clock made me a late a few times since it doesn't go off 100% of the time. Made me late more than twice.
Very unreliable
Johnb300m on 2/27/2017
I really like this app. Except for the past several months there have been half a dozen times where the alarm is "going off" at the set time, but there is no audible alarm to wake me. So I've overslept several times now. That's unacceptable. I'm dumping this app.
Owen AhDark on 2/23/2017
The app has the standard login with Facebook, then it has you register but fails to register every time.
Jordi0224 on 2/22/2017
Bambiehlers on 2/22/2017
Giving it 3 stars because I like the alarm sounds and it hasn't failed to go off yet. However the main feature of the app doesn't even work. Every time it says I'm awake the whole night. Really?
Love It
OMG - NO WAY on 2/21/2017
Great app. Love the not taking ability.
