Ratings and Reviews
Review lowered by 2 :((
As I wrote in my review a year ago, I would have really liked to have seen the app extend out to a max time of 35 or 40 minutes -- as it takes some time to lie down & settle in - and then actually doze off!
Where the science shows 20 minutes of actual sleep /unconsciousness to be the "sweet spot" for a power nap (one that also avoids sleep inertia upon waking) -- the 30 minute limit found here is too short IMO and hinders the potential of the app.
This limitation is fed by the fact that people generally don't want to feel they need to "rush to get to sleep!" That doesn't work too well, as most people know.
I wrote the developer concerning a slightly extended time limit about a year ago and he seemed to see the value in it. However, with no change having yet been seen, it appears the update will never happen.
Anyway, I've dropped the star score on my review and have since changed over to a nap app called "Nap Slide" -- it is the one I now recommend to others.
Naps and more!
I love my naps, but hate having a heart attack upon weakening to an alarm. This app fixes that. I also like using small chunks of time to read, but hate having to watch the clock or be startled out of my story. I feel as though I'm doing a mental glaucoma test, waiting for that puff of air in my eye. Not anymore! And the ambient noise helps me to focus on my book while time slips by. Yes, it's "just a timer," but it's a gentle one that makes time monitoring pleasant instead of obsessive. I like it. 😊
Good, but no for me.
This is a good nap app for those that "power nap." Easy to use, good sleep and wake sounds, and okay to semi cute graphics. The longest nap you can take with this app is 30 min.
Not for those that need longer naps for any reason. Due to a chronic pain condition, I need to nap daily, but generally for 1-2 hours. I wanted an app that would work with a night time sleep app to total all my sleep for my doc to see. No glory with that idea yet.
Anyway, give the kitty a try if you can do power naps at work, in your car, etc
