  • Picks up partner's snoring

    Like another reviewer, I also have a problem with tracking when there are two in bed. Maybe it's fine if you sleep alone, but this consistently picks up my partner's snore and gets my sleep wrong as a result. I don't know why she rated it 3 stars despite this, as it renders all the "smart" features totally useless. I give it 1 plus one for lovely design.
  • Doesn’t really know when you are asleep

    I have trouble sleeping. I have even had a sleep study. I thought I had found the perfect app until it was telling me I had 90+ % sleep and I knew I had laid awake a long time. Last night I woke up at 2 and laid awake forever trying to get back to sleep. It was 5 before I went back to sleep. Sleep app thought I was sleeping the whole time and it was one of the few nights it said my sleep quality was 100%. Don’t think I’ll be using this app any longer.
  • Disappointed

    Been a long term user of this great app until I got an iPhone X. Now the app has crashed, won’t connect with the microphone. Support says I have to reset my iPhone and I’m not comfortable doing that. So I won’t be using this app anymore and I’m disappointed. Very disappointed. Fix the app and I might come back, and might recommend your app to my many friends - or not.
  • Never used app, got charged for it

    I once downloaded this app unsure of what it was, then immediately removed it when it wasn’t quite what I was looking for. Come to find out that they charged me $35 for it a month later. Very disingenuous.
  • Horrible app!

    This app is great example of great concept, but terrible execution. The app decided that I should wake up two hours early, even tho I gave it a half hour range. If you don’t mind getting your your sleep cycle completely ruined, then this app is for you!

    Blue tooth head phones don’t work when sleep cycle is running in back ground. Bummer.
  • I have been using this for years and love it!

    For years I have used Sleep Cycle on my phone, but with the acquisition of a new iPad I have wall mounted my old iPad next to the bed as a Smart Alarm/Music Player/Netflix Before Bedtime machine. Thing brings me to mind of a couple features I would LOVE to see: •IPad operation in landscape mode. •The ability to used the screen as a “daylight” alarm, similar to the Hue alarm clocks that get gradually brighter. •The ability to point to a playlist on shuffle as my alarm. I would love to wake to music, but not just the same song everyday—to much of a Groundhog’s Day vibe. Thank you again for the wonderful app!

  • It actually does help

    I was skeptical about using an app like this but I think it really does help. The sleep tracking is more accurate than I expected and I do feel more awake in the mornings. I combined this with a light alarm clock and the combo is really good.
  • Great App
