The solution for parents who's children rise too early and don’t get enough rest!
Help your young child sleep better at nights with this sleep training clock. Set a bed time and a wake time, and this app will display an image of the night sky or day sky. Tell your child if he or she sees a picture of the night sky, it’s still time to sleep. When the day sky appears though, it’s time to wake up!
You can also personalize the app by choosing your own pictures that are familiar to your child for both night time and day time images.
A nap mode is also included. Specify a preset nap duration and activate it anytime during the day. Clouds will appear, signifying it’s nap time…and will move away when nap time is over.
Other features include:
-Screen lock mode: Prevent your child from changing settings.
-Swipe (left/right) to show other clock screen views
- Swipe left or right to show different Clock Modes (Multiple Animated/Multiple Static/Custom Image Clock Modes)
- Nap Mode: in settings set total time child should sleep, then close settings screen and click nap button during nap time.
- Wake/Sleep times: in settings set wake and sleep times you want sun and moon to change.

Ratings and Reviews
Needs work. A lot of work!
Tried this app and I like the idea but it needs a lot of work to fix the bugs.
First, the night time and daytime backgrounds that show are reversed from the settings. This is an easy fix but has been ignored for over a year by the developer based on past reviews.
Second, what is with the time first displaying the minutes correctly then after a number of seconds get replaced with ... ? I'm guessing that it's so the kids won't be watching the minutes tick by but it should be a "feature" that can be disabled in the settings.
Third, speaking of the settings, you supposed to be able to disable access to the settings by making access only available by tapping once in each corner instead of using the settings button which then disappears once this feature is made active. Nice idea but very buggy and all one has to do is to minimize the app and re display it and the settings button is back where it started at.
Fourth, why are the settings button and arrow controls on the main screen in the first place? It detracts from the background I selected and looks ugly.
Fifth, I chose a custom background expecting it to fill my screen. Instead it is presented letterbox fashion which I find unattractive.
Overall, these are problems that could very easily fixed and I would expect this app to be better than it is considering I paid $2 for it. Going to be looking for a replacement and write up this one as a bad purchase.
Great app, worth buying!
noticed someone left review about being forced to buy full version because can't use offline. Completely understand and worth paying for paid version, some people just don't get it...
Forced to buy paid version
Super annoying that the free version forces you to upgrade to the paid version. Free version gives a message that it is no longer available for your use & the only option is to buy the paid app. Because my kid is reliant on it, I did buy, but will definitely not recommend to others.
Developer Response ,
right, apple stopped ads so app disabled itself in older version. it has since been updated to have ads again so should work as free with internet/cell connection now.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
