I wanted this for the alarm feature mostly but it’s a complete gamble since sometimes I wake up and have found that the app crashed in the middle of the night (I have a newer iPhone and everything is updated).
The other reason I paid money for the app is to use the sleep aid tracks but I found out that they fade out after an hour or so when I want them to play the entire night.
Would be cool if these issues were solved but it’s kind of useless as is and I feel dumb for spending money
Great app but annoying 4/5
I love the sleep data it collects but I find the sleep sound notifications annoying. I require silence to get to sleep so I do not use the sleep sounds. I have long wished for an option to disable that entire section of the app.
Inaccurate sleep tracking 1/5
By xiaohan M
The app is very well designed but I don’t think it can recognize whether or not I am asleep at all. Tried it for multiple nights and the analysis is pretty far off every night. I don’t have a watch though. Only the phone.
I was liking this app, but ever since I updated my iPhone to the latest IOS, the app freezes on me when I tap on the journal to see how long I slept for and whatnot.
Free trial does not work 1/5
Honestly, haven't even tried the app. However, after signing up for a free trial, it repeatedly prompts me to purchase premium before it will allow me to use it. Kinda suspicious that a free trial isn't actually a trial and attempts to get you to pay regardless.
Suddenly asked to log out n. 1/5
Try to log in so I can use this app. I can't because apparently my 1 year subscription has expired. How do I renew (don't want premium, just my regular alarm clock features). Go to account to renew, but I have to log in, oh wait, I can't log in.
Now way am I paying $40 for features I don't use, the basic app was all I wanted.
I'm going back to the one that came with my phone.
By do Kia am or will
This app wakes you up calmly and you won’t get up annoyed you will kind of get up relaxed and easy then setting an alarm that is very loud it would recommend this app
Charged for Premium features that I won’t use 1/5
By Rrios larue
I guess the default option they charge you if you forget to cancel in time is the Premium which is $39.99 a year! That’s outrageous. The Premium features are useless to me and now I don’t want to use the app at all because I’m so frustrated there is no option to get even a partial refund through Apple. I would be less upset if they charged for the lesser year long plan but $40 is just silly. It’s not that useful of an app.
New Subscription ?? 3/5
I’ve used this app consistently for probably 8 years and at least 3-4 different phones and I got a new phone today and now it wants me to buy a subscription. Still a great app but honestly I do not think its worth the price (fairly cheap I really can’t hate too hard im just upset) but also better management ? Idk my sister said she had to pay for it when she got it s few months ago but then her daughter got it and she didn’t have to. V weird
Don’t download 1/5
You can’t operate the app unless you pay. 😐
Nice app 5/5
I still need to work on my sleeping pattern and track every day. And thanks to this app, I have been able to hear myself sleeping in my normal (and intoxicated) state and it’s been both amusing and inspiring. Lol
Seems accurate 5/5
Compared to 2 other sleep apps, seems to generate similar data.
Pay wall 1/5
By Mikayla mikki Lynn Provenzano
Wth is with this pay wall let us get past it and use the up like we used to FOR FREE. If it’s free to use THAN LET US USE IT.
Randomly have to pay $40/year 1/5
I’ve been using this app for years and it has always helped me wake up on time. For a few days I click on the app and it exits immediately so then I deleted it and re-installed it and it’s asking for money now. SCREW YOU.
Hello, I’m trying to restore my purchase and I cannot please help
Not syncing completely with iPhone 3/5
I really like the app and everything it provides within in it. A few problems I have is that it is not syncing detailed sleep data to my Health App and throwing off data in other apps. I have gone through all the options and all say it is synced.
Another issues I have is that I have apparently paid for the app sometime ago and now get offered premium features at a discount.
But I have already paid???!!!
I used it as an alarm clock. But now it’s so irritating 1/5
It was 12:30 am and I was ready to sleep. I set the alarm as usual and put the phone down. Yet I continued to hear sound from the phone. After some investigation I was surprised to find the sound came from this app. Apparently it tries to ‘coach’ me how to sleep, while all I need for the app is to just keep quiet. After 5 min not able to opt out this function, it becomes so irritating that I have to leave this bad review. Yeah you can pause it, but when it’s time to sleep, I would prefer to completely end something instead of pause it. I’ve been using (and paying!) the app since 2017 and I noticed they have been putting more and more functions to the app. Unfortunately, for someone who just needs an alarm clock, more doesn’t mean better. I just want to sleep, so let me sleep without asking more attention, action, and time from me. I’m afraid it’s time to go. I’ll unsubscribe and uninstall the app after leaving this review.
Good app. Worth premium, but fine without. 4/5
The sleep analyzing doesn’t always work the best and doesn’t pick up every time you wake up in the middle of the night if you just open your eyes and don’t move, but other than that, pretty decent
No free version 1/5
I heard very good things about this app, but I was not wanting to buy premium yet, so I was going to try the free version first. The app didn’t even let me get past the pay wall, despite it being labeled as free on the App Store. Waste of my time. I’m using a different app now that actually lets me use the free version.
iOS update makes it super hard to stop analysis 1/5
After iOS updated from an orange bar behind the clock to indicate the mic was on in the background to a little tiny orange dot, it’s near impossible to wake up and remember to stop the analysis. Rendered the app useless to me
App not working 1/5
Since around the 22nd of January the app doesn’t recognize any movement from me. I’m not sure if there was an update to the app or not but it was working fine before that.
Only useable if you pay 1/5
By L Kucirka
Broke college student here with insomnia, this app used to be my bestfriend but it suddenly crashed on me and I had to redownload it. Now it won’t let me use the alarm function or even access the alarm without paying or signing up for the free trail. I’ve had this app for over a year and have NEVER had to pay to access the alarm.
Overall good, minor issues 3/5
I wish you could edit and merge results. Sometimes it will split my sleep into 2 chunks so it appears my quality was super low when really I got decent sleep (so 4 hour sleep sessions instead of a single 8 hour). Makes the calendar view sad.
By Hardly somewhat
Helpful some give time to learn more about app
Just making it up 2/5
Not sure whether this is a legit app or not. I had covid recently and spent hours wide awake some nights and yet the app says I was in one of the sleep states. Last night I got up to go to the bathroom and it said I was still asleep. I know it’s only picking up breathing sounds but other than telling me I’m snoring I’m finding little use for it
Used to be OK, now pointless! 1/5
By Gc 57889
I have used this app for years and suddenly last week they changed 90% of the features to be behind a pay wall. I will be looking for a different sleep tracker app. I’m sure there are many out there better than this one.
Do not disturb not working 1/5
By Homie brooks
Been a long time user but now looking for alternatives. The top volume for the alarm when the phone is in focus mode seems to be near zero now. Slept through alarm multiple times.
Please fix or add a setting to adjust which alerts come through!
They just want money 2/5
Tou have to pay for it to record your sleep but it does other things too.
App Locks Up 1/5
The app was working fine until just recently. Now anytime you go to any other tab the app just freezes. I tried everything and finally went to go see if others were having same issue, and they are.
This needs to be fixed ASAP. It completely ruins the point in using the app
Takes away basic tools w/out subscription 2/5
Meh, I paid for a few months for all tools. Seems bloated. I listened to my sleep sounds sometimes. Back up is creepy for privacy. One day of sounds to check is enough. Was free till just days ago. Now looking for new sleep app. Honestly Im not sure its really necessary for me personally. Just another apple health statistic to keep up on.
Was great, but not anymore 1/5
Once I changed phones they wanted me to re-purchase everything, I lost years of data because it doesn’t transfer from one phone to another. Hours wasted with their lack of support. Really a disappointment..
I love the overall of the app, I with I could add notes and I wish it synced up with my pedometer because I walk much more without my phone in hand so it loses a lot of accuracy
Not intuitive 2/5
I recently purchased the premium version but now regret it. I don’t find it intuitive to navigate. The alarm doesn’t work when I expect it to. Today I’m having trouble locating the alarm options, which I’ve stumbled upon in the past. I thought I had the tracker on last night and wake to find it wasn’t recording. Maybe I will get the hang of it but in the meantime it’s frustratingly difficult to use, for something that should be very simply and clearly structured.
Stopped working 3/5
I have had this app for a long time then all of a sudden it just stopped tracking sleep and detecting snoring. Pretty much worthless to me now as I am using a cpap and was trying to see when I am snoring.
No motion detected 4/5
By Ajay's Apple ID
Love this app. Worked flawlessly on my iPad gen 3. Now trying to use with iPad Pro 12.9 M2 and iPhone 14 pro max but constantly get “no movement” detected message. Mic is on. Would love to rate 5. Please help.
Already paid 2/5
I paid for this app when it was in start up and now they want to charge me for the subscription.
Have been using this daily for four years three days ago it became unusable 1/5
By Weeping Beauty
Three days ago, the developer force inserted a fall asleep faster option with white noise into the user experience.
I don’t need to fall asleep faster, I fall asleep fine and I don’t want some audible, white noise background helping me do what I already do just fine.
The app is suddenly unusable, it’s a shame, I like it and it has four years of data
Not worth the money 1/5
There are multiple other apps that are worth the money
Needs a bug fix 1/5
Loved this app until recently. Going to the journal page locks up the app and you can’t see any of the info, which is what made this app so great. Cancelling my subscription if they don’t fix it asap.
It’s great! But, one problem 4/5
By Fat aster
Love using it every night, only wish I could control the volume of the sleep assist separate from the phone/ alarm volume. Besides that it’s great at helping me track my sleep!
Can't use it 1/5
Worked first two nights but now getting stuck on some message I can only see half of. Need bug fix
The free version is not available. 2/5
I’ve tried twice now to download the app to try it out. Each time it requires me to pay for a $40 a year subscription in order to even try it out. This is very misleading and I feel like I’m just wasted time playing with it . I’ve heard good things about it from a friend. Unfortunately, their business model has changed apparently.
great app - wish there was nap feature 5/5
nuff said. any update on the nap feature?
The app keep using my mic after i turned off my alarm 2/5
I saw a orange still after I turned off the alarm
Stops working halfway through the night 1/5
What’s the point in having an alarm if it doesn’t work the whole night?
Used to love but now it’s meh 2/5
I’ve been using this app for years and have been paying for premium nearly as long. But the last year or so, I’ve grown weary and disappointed with this sleep tracking. It’s way too easy to stop the tracking if I pick my phone up to move it in the night. I’ll glance and see the “how did you sleep?” that signals the end of tracking. I’d love to be able to cancel that and have it go back to sleep, but no. Have to end the night and sometimes start it over. The app doesn’t add those together and assumes separate sleeps.
It’s not offering great suggestions when it clearly shows I don’t sleep well and wake up every night around the same time. Maybe better meditations in-app? The sleep notes mean nothing - you can’t graph by time period - I’d like to know for the last week how the notes affect sleep, not just “all time.” Not happening.
It’s an okay alarm - I like the intelligent snooze and that it displays weather upon waking. But I’m also finding built in sleep tracking from my phone is getting better so this app is becoming a burden.
You broke it, stop trying to fix it 1/5
By Another Village Idiot
It was a great app a decade ago. A perfectly tidy little app. For some reason you decided to break it and adding useless cr-app. On top of this, your sleep aids are annoying and pointless, yet the app keeps stopping the decent sleep sounds I CHOOSE to listen as I sleep. Who wins in this situation? Not this app. So much worse over the years.
I've set the alarm the last three days since updating and it magically resets turning off the alarm by morning.
Sleep cycle, you are off to the bin. You have progressively made a good product useless.
Thank GOD there are other, better apps out there where the developers actually listen.
Good app. Needs one more thing 3/5
By i fall and am stuck pls help
I love this app, but something has been bothering me. I am unable to change wake up window on my Apple Watch and it makes it so that if I want a custom window, I have to track with my phone which is not preferred.
I will update this review once it is fixed because it is, like I said, a great app
Cheater app. Asks for money after forcing to create account 1/5
If you don't let user use its a small feature for free, forget trial 7 days, then you should clearly mention it before forcing user to create account and give your their email. You deserve 0 star for such cheating behavior.
Keeps stopping 1/5
I set the alarm/monitor at night, and about half the time I wake the next morning to find it just stopped monitoring. Most of the time it didn’t track at all, but last night it worked an hour and a half then assumed I woke up. So it tracked the hour and a half and no more. If you want me to subscribe, the free part has to at least work.
Paid App? No thank you... that's a bit selfish. 1/5
As a student I have been using this app throughout the years. It was never perfect but I found the smart alarm to work quite well. However, after a hiatus I returned to the app only to find that now the developers require you to pay to use the app (not for Premium, but for the whole app). This was very disappointing to me and I don't think I will be using this app ever again in that case.
