"The ultimate tool to sleep like a baby"

Sleep as Android is both an alarm and a sleep phases tracker

There are coming up heaps of this kind of apps but, first time you discover them you get flabbergasted. There are enough reasons for it. Sleep as an Droid is a high-configurable alarm. You can set lots of them weekly wake-up time, nap alarm, alarm to leave from work. Whatever. There are lots of options to customize it to your liking. Ringtone, vibration, labels, snooze duration, time to auto-kill alarm, gradual volume app... among many others.

One of the features we liked most is the "Smart Early Wake-up" what sets the maximum time before alarm to be wake if sleep is not deep. And you may ask, what that's for? This is because "Sleep as an Droid" isn't just an alarm, but a sleep phases tracker. It works this way: you set an alarm, press on "Start tracking" and leave the phone close to your bed (better in the bed itself). It uses the accelerometer and the micro to catch your moves and sounds while sleeping. This way, the app can set when you're in a light sleep phase or when you're deeply asleep. The keystone of a right sleep is waking-up when you're in the lightest sleep phase (we passed though 4-5 phases while 8-hour sleep). Knowing how long these phases take it's important to achieve it. What's more, having features like "Smart Early Wake-Up" helps us to wake up always in the peak of lightest sleep. You just may set a period from 5 minutes to 2 hours in which you want to wake-up when you reach that peak. The alarm will start to ring when you get it. Impressive!

You can even know your sleep debt stats or share your graph history via Facebook or e-mail. It's time to use technology to enhance our health and lifestyle. The main catch: the free version is a 14-days trial. If you want it with no restrictions, you'll need to upgrade to the Unlock Sleep as an Droid version ($0.99).

Sleep as an Droid has been developed by Petr Nálevka, an individual developer who has launched half dozen (great) apps on the market with remarkably success.

    The trial version required a payment, though nominal, to use the sleep tracker, which was the basic purpose of the app. Which defeats the purpose of it being a trial version. What do i try?

    I can now wake up feeling totally refreshed and I can make sure I get enough sleep by going to bed when it suggests. Awesome!

    Let's face it, what sets this app apart is that it's flipping adorable. Depending on where you are in relation to bedtime, the little android in the bottom corner will be wide awake, brushing his teeth in his PJs, or sound asleep. And dangit, it's fun little details like that that matter to me.
