Sleep cycle is continuously rated as the best smart alarm clock, Sleep Cycle is now the worlds most used intelligent alarm clock.

-------------------------------------------------------

* Sleep Cycle monitors your movement during sleep using the extremely sensitive accelerometer in your iPhone.

* Sleep Cycle then finds the optimal time to wake you up during a 30 minute window that ends at your set alarm time.

* Look at the screenshots for recommended iPhone placement.

-------------------------------------------------------

As you sleep you go through different phases, ranging from deep sleep to light sleep. The phase you are in when your alarm goes off is critical for how tired you will feel when you wake up.

Since you move differently in bed during the different phases, Sleep Cycle can use the accelerometer in your iPhone to monitor your movement and determine which sleep phase you are in.

Sleep Cycle wakes you when you are in your lightest sleep phase.

Sleep Cycle was developed using proven sleep science and years of research and development.

We are hard at work on the next big update to Sleep Cycle, in the meanwhile here is a minor update that fixes problems with iOS 5.

Expand notes
Version 3.0 (Nov 12, 2010)

Major improvements:
+ intelligent snooze
+ adjustable wake up phase length
anything from 0 minutes (regular alarm clock mode) to 10, 15, 20, 30, 45, 60 and 90 minutes
+ Sleep Cycle is now up to 5x more sensitive to your movement
this is great news because better sensitivity means better wake ups
+ no need to recalibrate Sleep Cycle when changing bed, pillow or mattress anymore
+ full support for the iPod touch
+ full iPhone 4 retina resolution support
+ possibility to use music from your iPod library as alarm sound
+ Sleep Cycle no longer mutes music or audiobooks that are playing in the background
+ no alarm mode - use Sleep Cycle to graph your sleep, without using the alarm

Also improved:
+ added swipe to navigate between graphs
+ added vibration settings ("As Backup", "No vibration", "Only vibrate")
+ more detailed and smoother sleep graphs
+ improved performance
+ screen now fades to black on iPod touches when the device is placed with the glass down
+ advanced accelerometer calibration
Sleep Cycle needs one or two nights to automatically calibrate to your accelerometer
+ updated graphics for buttons and other UI elements
+ added a regular alarm clock sound in addition to the normal wake up melodies
+ if you shut down Sleep Cycle during the night and start it up again it will continue on the same graph
+ warning shown on nights that are too short (less than 2.5 hours)
+ warning shown on nights that Sleep Cycle has sensed no or very little movement
+ small gray line below sleep graph to indicate when the alarm window started
+ calculation of average total time is now done in background
+ possibility to log out from Facebook (button in advanced settings)
+ added a default subject line when sharing graph by email
+ removed "dreaming" from graph legend
we've done a lot of research around this with help from sleep scientists and determined that
Sleep Cycle cannot reliably detect when you are in REM sleep

+ fixed bug: AM/PM being clipped in statistics view
+ fixed bug: navigation arrows in statistics are now always correctly dimmed
+ fixed bug: correct day of week displayed in statistics
+ fixed bug: accelerometer was too sensitive on some devices producing incorrect sleep graphs
this is fixed by calibrating to the accelerometer during the first two nights
+ fixed bug: when shutting off the alarm the home-button now works even if the iPhone is covered by a sheet (proximity sensor problem)
+ fixed bug: problem when posting to Facebook when user has changed Facebook password
+ fixed bug: crash when trying to share graph by email and no email accounts where set up
