* Our patented technology monitors your sleep movements using sound or vibration analysis.
* Sleep Cycle then finds the optimal time to wake you up during a 30 minute window that ends at your set alarm time.
* Recommended placement: Near the bed or on the floor.
As you sleep you go through different phases, ranging from deep sleep to light sleep. The phase you are in when your alarm goes off is critical for how tired you will feel when you wake up.
Since you move differently in bed during the different phases, Sleep Cycle can use the microphone or accelerometer in your iPhone to monitor your movements and determine which sleep phase you are in.
Sleep Cycle wakes you when you are in your lightest sleep phase.
Sleep Cycle was developed using proven sleep science and years of research and development.

Great Alarm, but missing some features.
I love this app. It wakes me up really well maybe 80% of the time. One thing I wish we had was the option to set a limit of how loud it can get because it increases volume over time. It gets very loud and I’m worried about waking others up in my house. I also would like to either see a price decrease on premium (As the features do not justify 40$ a year), or adding some premium features to the free mode. I bought Phillips Hue and am not interested in spending another 40$ just to use them how I would like. Other than that, the app works how it should and I enjoy it. Thanks!
It would be better if a non-subscription premium was offered. I don’t want to pay a year let alone multiple years and commit to this app. Without premium, the data shown only to tease you to buying a subscription.
Trying out Pillow, which at first glance has more standard features included without premium. I’ll gladly upgrade to premium with a one time charge.
Seems like a sham
Used this app for a couple weeks, then got a little suspicious of the reports. If I got up in the middle of the night for a bathroom run,and checked the time, the next morning the report didn't show that I was awake, but that I was asleep at that time. So I tried leaving the phone in the living room one night, and it showed that my sleep quality was 89 percent. Doesn't sound like this app actually works. Glad I didn't upgrade to the premium.
