Great App 5/5
I still struggle with my mornings, but I do like that this app helps wake me up when I am more likely to get up.
The Secret to Waking up on Time 5/5
I think I have found the perfect combination of alarm clocks. I always set Sleep Cycle to be my first alarm, and another app called SpinMe Alarm Clock as my backup. Sleep Cycle usually wakes me up in my optimal wake up time, but sometimes it just isn’t enough for me and I’ll either snooze through it or turn it off and go back to bed. If Sleep Cycle fails to wake me up, my backup alarm SpinMe will start blaring which can only be turned off if I get out of bed and spin around twice before it finally shuts off! Crazy but it works and I haven’t been late to work since I started doing this. And no you can't just spin the phone around in your hand!
Sleep Cycle really does help in waking you up during your light sleep. I can feel it working most mornings. And I have studied the science behind sleep so I can attest that the premise of this app isn’t merely a placebo, but something that has actually been proven. However the problem that this alarm clock doesn’t solve is that sometimes (especially on nights where you get very little sleep), it can be really easy to ignore your alarm clock and really hard to wake up. That’s where SpinMe Alarm comes in, an alarm clock that is impossible to ignore and forces you awake. I highly recommend using these 2 alarms together. Best few dollars I’ve ever spent!
Preferably not 3/5
It's OK, except for the fact that it turns off by itself in the night and it overheats your phone while you sleep
Great app 5/5
Works for me
Most used app 5/5
This has been the most used app I have. Ever since I started using it my sleep patterns have been better and I wake up feeling like I have gotten sleep and not drowsy at all. Love it.
Amazing app! 5/5
By Nik Terry
My dad and I have both used this app for over 5 years and it works!
It will always try its best to wake you up when you are in your lightest phase of sleep, so when you do wake up, you won't feel like a zombie!
This is the easily one of the best apps for the iPhone!
Reliable, non-intrusive sleep tracker 4/5
Works well for me without having to wear a device.
Best way to wake 5/5
I am not a morning person, and sleep is so important. This app helps me wake up feeling better and more rested every day. It is also oddly satisfying to look through my sleep analysis and see the nights I did and didn't get the best sleep. It's a very useful app, one of my essentials.
Best sleep app for all 5/5
I'm bipolar so following my sleep helps me monitor healthy habits and potential unhealthy habits. It's a great tool to keep track of yourself at night/ when it's sleep time. Think of it as a sleep journal. Brings me peace of mind.
This is the first time I write a good review for an app. Well actually it's the first time I write a review for an app. This is also the first app I've ever been willing to pay for. It's helped me be more mindful of my sleeping habits, and also pay more attention to the things that causes bad nights of sleep to avoid them. It's even helped my 6 year old fall asleep faster with the white noise feature.
Helps my insomnia 4/5
By Hose nose
I had my doubts but with this app I wake up early and feeling so refreshed. Because of that I'm able to get a good nights sleep most nights. Without premium this app delivers what I think to be the best way to sleep! Just try it for one night, I can't go without it now haha
Always loved this app 5/5
I've been using this app for years. As a serious athlete, I value sleep quite immensely as a part of my recovery routine. This app makes it easy to track how long I've been asleep and wakes me up when I'm in my lightest phase of sleep in the morning. It's awesome.
Bring back Haptic Feedback 4/5
Haptic Feedback seems to stop working whenever your app is in sleep mode... I do not like that. Why is that? Can you please make it work like normal?
Also, I would really like if you started recording sleep talking with your app, considering you use the microphones now. Great app still.
By Teknowledgee 1972
The clock app that comes with the phone wasn't working so my dad showed me this app and it works great. It goes off and it is cool to see your sleep pattern.
Music while falling asleep 4/5
I like to play music through spotify as I fall asleep, but turning the app on automatically pauses the music.
By Newbold's iTunes
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!! 😍😍😍 could add a thunder and lighting storm noise as well as a loon (look it up if you don't know what that is) they're both relaxing noises
Sleep Cycle is accurate 5/5
I enjoy using this user friendly app. Helps me to see what my sleep quality night after is.
Excellent app 4/5
It gave a lot of important info about my sleep and its condition

897 nights 5/5
By Jade Glaze
• The app was like magic for the first 2 years or so I used it, but it seems that eventually my body adapted and it's as difficult as ever to wake up most days.
• It's still the best (and least expensive!) alarm clock I've ever owned. The tracking is great. I'm a nerd so I wish there were even more charts. :)
Bottom line: buy it. Maybe you'll "only" get 2 years of easy mornings like I did, but... 2 years!
Don't download if you want to receive extreme weather alerts during the night 2/5
I've been using Sleep Cycle faithfully for over a year now. It does its job perfectly.
I always leave my sound on just in case because I live far away from family. At first, I noticed that I wasn't hearing notifications from calls or texts while Sleep Cycle was on. No biggie because I could always get to them in the morning. Tonight however was different. I went to bed, left my sound on and turned Sleep Cycle on the microphone setting. A horrible storm came through and it seemed like an eternity and I couldn't sleep. I looked at my phone to check the time and location and behold, there was a notification of a tornado watch, urging me to take shelter - a watch now 45 minutes expired because no sound or vibration ever went off for me to hear. Sorry, Sleep Cycle, but for my own safety, I'm deleting.
Great sleep app 5/5
By A normal sleeper
Easy to track and wake up with this app.
Love the app, needs to fix audio bug 3/5
I've been using sleep cycle since it first came out. The sleep aid in particular is huge for me. Normally I use cabin hum. However new iPhone 7+ has a popping noise accompanying the cabin hum and it doesn't sound good. Set for 90min, happens on any sound I choose.
Great way to track your sleep 4/5
Works really well to keep track of how much sleep you got & what kind of sleep you got. Knows when you wake up in the middle of the night even if you don't realize it. It's ability to wake you in the morning at a point where your already semi-awake is very helpful.
Best wake up alarm imo 5/5
Most graceful awakening
tried it three nights in a row, went off once.
One of the best 4/5
By The Green iPod
This is one of the best on the iOS Market.
Pretty good 4/5
Gets me up so gg
By T Bucci
Beware! This app signs you up automatically for a $30/year subscription.
Makes waking up easier 5/5
Very satisfied with the app. I always wake up refreshed.
Great app 5/5
This app has really helped get a handle on better sleep. I'd be interested in more "sleep study" features to help with say snoring or too much movement.
Sleep cycle 5/5
I have used sleep cycle only a few times but I love it. It is a alarm clock and it tracks your sleep pattern. I love it!
By Cloud Puffs
It works! 5/5
Been using it for a week now and I love it!! It really tracks my sleep patterns and is helping me wake up at the right time so I'm not feeling as groggy for work. Love it !
Loved it so much 5/5
It helps me track my sleep
Does what it says it will! 5/5
By Peter Goldfine
I've tried others. This is the best. It definitely wakes you more tenderly, for lack of a better word.
Alarm isn't waking me up anymore 2/5
By Kizzy J
I used to really like this app and have been using it for years (gave it 5 stars in a previous review), but in the last week it has failed to wake me up twice. I missed class on the first of these days due to oversleeping. The second day, it seemed that the alarm hadn't gone off at all between 6 and 6:30 (the set time), as it finally went off only when I opened the app on my phone after waking up around 9 AM.
Use it every night! 5/5
Love using this app every night to track my sleep
By Samaki Kubwa
Considering I only use the free version, let me say this is a great way to track sleep. Within a week I can see significant patterns. Waking me up at the best point of my sleep cycle is the bomb.
To the best of my ability to tell, this all is accurate. My wife used hers and her Fitbit sleep tracker a few nights and said Sleep Cycle is better.
By What kind of update is this?!
this is honestly such an awesome app. It definitely works. Waking up is SO MUCH EASIER!!! no matter how early I have to wake up at I feel refreshed and energized when I wake up. Definitely would recommend this to anyone who has a hard time waking up.
Revolutionized my mornings! My bf and I are both addicted.
Fun to check data 4/5
I enjoy having a "gentler" alarm clock to awaken me. The newer version doesn't seem to correlate as well with how my sense is of my night's sleep as the older version did, so I wonder if my partner's occasional thrashing about interferes with the data. The percentages given for the quality of sleep don't always make sense when comparing one night to another. It's pretty impressive though to see how much better my sleep is when I get to sleep alone :-/ and when I have had a physically exhausting day.
great app for waking you up 5/5
Really helps me wake up in the morning. Instead of hitting the snooze over and over and getting up late, it shortens the time every time so you wake up. i'm less tired in the morning. worth the premium
Best sleep app ever 5/5
By Ipsy lover 22
The absolute best... I would recommend it to anyone

It's a great way to track my sleeping patterns. Definitely have been able to improve my overall sleep.
Worth the money 5/5
Does a good job and is reliable. The nice thing is it's always being developed.
It's been a helpful tool during stressful time in my life to help me get my sleep under control.
