“So,” they said, “If you run this app on your phone,
use the app’s alarm,
then sleep with the phone under your pillow,
it will wake you up at the perfect time within about a half hour window.”
AND it would also show a chart how deep your sleep was and how many times you woke up in the night.
I was skeptical about the alarm part. Seems a little like waiting for the tooth fairy!
But that last part about how many times I awake in the night was something I was really curious about. It seems like I wake up hundred times each night. Turns out not nearly so many. AND it also shows how LONG I’m awake or nearly awake in that night.
And here’s the thing.
I didn’t read the directions quite right. So I didn’t realize I had actually SET the alarm. I had the phone on silent so it only quietly buzzed at me in the morning. And man, it was spot on! I was actually ready to get moving.
If I were a crazy heavy sleeper like my son, I could have made the alarm as loud as my phone goes… and set off right under his head? I bet THAT would do the trick!
Check it out. At press time it cost $.99 for iPhones only, I think.
