Sometimes, we have trouble getting to sleep. There are all kinds of reasons this can happen. For example, you could be really stressed and have a brain fully loaded with thoughts and problems that are keeping your mind from shutting down. Sometimes, you can’t even figure out a good reason why sleep is being difficult; all you know is you need to sleep, and you just can’t make it happen. Well, there are ways to help yourself get some sleep, and relaxing sounds can definitely help.
The iPhone App called Sleep Pillow is one the best sleep aid apps on the App Store. It comes with a lot of sounds designed to help you relax and get to sleep. Of course, if you are having serious sleep issues, that could be a medical condition, and no application is going to help that. However, if you are just a little stressed, and you need a little something to help you relax, Sleep Pillow is the app for you.
Best of all, you can download Sleep Pillow on the App Store for free for a limited time. Don’t wait though, because the app will go back to $1.99 before you know it.
The app has lots of sounds to help you fall asleep. You can choose any of the sounds and let it play to relax you. You can also set a sleep timer so the app automatically stops playing your chosen sound after a certain amount of time. For choosing the sound, it shows you a simple image that represents it. For example, you will see a body of water with rain drops falling into it to let you know it’s a rain storm hitting a river. It’s a simple visual interface that works perfectly for the app.
The app also has an alarm clock built-in, so you can use the sounds to gently wake you up in the morning. Instead of the shocking sounds that come equipped with the default iOS alarm clock, these are much more kind, and they will not shock you awake.
On the top of each sound is a little heart. If you click that, it will add the sound to your favorites, where you can then click the heart on the bottom of the screen to see only the ones you’ve added there. It provides you with a quick way to get the sounds you like best.
The app also allows you to create and save mixes of up to three sounds. For example, you can combine one of the rain sounds with a gentle thunderstorm. From the mix screen, you can change the volume of each of the sounds, so you can find the right balance of volume for each sound. Once you like them mix, click save, and you will be able to come back to it whenever you want.
The app comes with a convenient help screen that will get you through any issues you may face while using it. Personally, I did not have any issues while testing the app, but it’s good to see that developers have acknowledged the issues that could pop up and have convenient solutions to fix them.
If you need a little help relaxing, this is the perfect app for you. Best of all, you can grab it free from the App Store for a limited time. Don’t take too long, because before you know it, the app will return to its regular price of $1.99, and you will have missed the boat!
