Apps for sound sleep are not a new thing. There are a variety of sound sleeping apps for you to try, and half of the problem does not know which ones are good and which are not. This is compounded by the fact that many apps seem to work for some people and not for others. The same is true in real life, just like how some people cannot fall asleep on a train, some can, and some feel sleepy through being on a train. Here are five apps that may or may not work for you to help you get a sounder night’s rest.
1 – Epic Sleep ULTRA Pro
Clearly with all the bombastic wording–this app is aimed at men. They may have well have added “Stealth Turbo” into the title and be done with it. The app has ambient sounds that are relaxing and soothing. What the company also claims is that it has delta sleep induction sounds which are supposed to make falling into a deeper sleep easier. Feel free to maintain your skepticism as many apps claim this sort of thing, but if it works for you then it works for you.
2 – Sleep Now!
The name alone sounds like something you may hear in a really crappy Vietnam War movie. That are twelve sounds that you can listen to and it includes noises such as at the beach which is relaxing and even a heart beat which is supposed to remind you of the time you were in the womb. It has different settings to help you choose the right one for your mood.
3 – Relax and Sleep Plus
This app gives you thirty five ambient noises to play on your phone. It will also mix them up and will run for as long as you tell it to. The funniest occasions are when people set similar tones as ring tones and suddenly become unreachable because they do not know their phone is ringing. The idea is that some people enjoy ambient noises and sleep better with them.
4 – Sound A Sleep
Time dilation is when time slows down and there is a theory (albeit unproven) that we experience time dilation when we are tired and falling asleep. It is commonly seen in movies when a person is drugged and time appears to be going slower. This app adds in moments where the ambient sound slows down as if time dilation was happening. This is in order to trick the brain into thinking it is going to sleep.
5 – Music Therapy for Sound Sleep
This is a therapy soundtrack that claims to use Alpha waves to help you sleep more soundly. It also has a mixer so that you can combine your favorite ambient noises.
Try these if you are still having trouble sleeping
In the introduction you read that some techniques and apps work for some and not for others. If you have had no luck with the top five then give one of these a try.
Restful Sleep Deluxe Edition
Deluxe or not, this is a great app to say that it is free. It is another one of those apps where some people claim it works and some claim it does not, and it probably goes to show that we all react differently (as claimed in the introduction). Still, the app is worth a shot if you have trouble sleeping.
This is a free app that claims it can induce a deep sleep through the sounds it makes. There are some people who claim that it works and that it helps them wake up more refreshed and there are some who claim no difference, so it is up to you to decide (there is no harm in it since it is free).
Thunderstorm Sleep sound
This is a free app that allows you to drift away with the sounds of thunderstorms. This may seem silly, but think of the sound of the rain atop a caravan room and you can see why it is such a nice idea. There is also the fact that the company claims all of the noises are genuine and that there is no looping, which if true makes it a great soundtrack. There is nothing worse than trying to lose yourself in the sound of storm rain only to realize that the rain noises are faked and you can picture the tools they are using to create the sounds.
Pure Sleep | AmbiScience
This is an app that is full of different sounds and features that help you sleep. There are long tracks that help you sleep through the night and there are binaural tracks which are supposed to help you relax. There are lots of features so you can choose the best one for you.
Sleep Dream Relax
This is an app that uses noises to lull you into REM sleep, which is the part of sleep where you dream. The creators claim that you can dream and hear the music, but most users just claim it is a nice soundtrack to go to sleep with.
