If you’re like me, waking up in the morning can be challenging. Hearing my loud alarm go off in the AM sometimes scares me to death and other times I can’t hear it at all. So how can this problem be solved? There’s an app for that!
Sleep Cycle is a Swiss-made iPhone app that offers a new approach to the way we wake up. During the night, we drift back and forth between light and deep sleep cycles; the key to feeling rested and relaxed is to wake up during the light sleep phase. The Sleep Cycle App claims to be able to help you do just that.
So, how does it work?
Placed under your pillow, Sleep Cycle uses a sensor called accelerometer that lets your mobile device track your movements throughout the night. Since your movement during sleep varies between the different stages of sleep, Sleep Cycle is able to track what stage of sleep you are in. As you approach the light sleep phase it will gently wake you up. It even lets you use your own mp3 music as a wake up tune. Just remember to charge your phone during the night as the app is constantly working and may drain your battery.
Do you use Sleep Cycle already – tell us how well it works for you.

Found a wonderful way to wake up: Zen Alarm Clock. It’s an iPhone app that has a whole bunch of really pleasant sounds to wake you gently in the morning. Very nice indeed.
My friend had this app, and was so excited about using it, he could hardly sleep! But I agree with Barnaloper, the Zen alarm is a very calming way to wake up. Sadly, it’s mostly my 1 year old daughter who does that job these days!
