I think I may have mentioned that I am NOT a morning person. At all. So people who come up with new ways to ease me into wakefulness are very welcome, but met with a certain skepticism. Sleep Cycle says it will wake you up when your sleep is at its lightest, which should make it easier to wake up.

It’s an interesting concept, that works by monitoring your movement. The more you move, the lighter you’re sleeping. It tries to avoid waking you up during your REM sleep, which is the most important part of your sleep cycle. It’s rather a brilliant idea: say you want to wake up at 7 in the morning (yikes), then this app will start tracking your movement to pick the best moment to wake you.

Actually, if you are going to have to wake up at some ungodly hour, this is a pretty cool app to do it with. It’s easy to use and it wakes you up in a way that makes you feel like you were already awake, even if it was just a little. App also keeps track of your sleeping pattern which can be quite useful if you’re having trouble sleeping. All in all, at $0.99, this is a pretty neat app!

We rate this app 4 out of 5 stars
