iPhone Sleep Apps-Reviewed
(by Eric Cohen)
We tested these two sleep-related apps. What did we learn?

First, I'll talk about the app "Sleep Cycle". Sleep 
cycle is a nicely designed and very easy to use iPhone app and if you're used to having any iPhone apps this one will be a breeze to figure out how to use. The app is very clever in that you turn on at night when you're about to go to bed, you tuck it under your fitted sheet in the corner of the bed next to your pillow. You put it face down and go to sleep. During the night it measures your body movement and can tell what stages of sleep you are in. 

I think the interesting use for this app is if you are having trouble sleeping or falling asleep it may clearly identify when you're having trouble and that might help you lead to solutions. I'll be posting my four nights of sleep on National Sleep Therapy Facebook page. I believe this app was either free or $.99 and seemed inexpensive enough to try. I'll continue to use it for the next month and report back in our January phone call. I challenge others to do the same. Perhaps we can have a sleep cycle contest see who gets the most deep sleep!

Next, I used an app called "Relax and Sleep Well". 
It's basically an English fellow named Glenn Harrold who has a nice voice nearly hypnotizing you to fall sleep. According to his own website... Glenn is one of the world's best-selling hypnotherapists. By nature, I was skeptical. 

Mind you I've only use this app a few times, and this app came recommended by one of my colleagues who uses it often and with great success. I did my very best to remain open to the thought of being 'hypnotized' to fall asleep. I listened to his voice telling me to think of a quiet place, to hear the waves crashing, to let the day go, but all I could think of was this little sound coming from my iPhone from under my pillow. 

A few minutes later, I realized I briefly fallen asleep while this little man inside my phone was talking. Eventually I did fall asleep while he was still talking, and after briefly waking up again I waited and listened- and he was done talking. I then fell sleep for good. I wasn't sure if this app really worked, I fell asleep before it ended...
