There is an App for Everyone including those who can’t sleep

Here are five of them I found in App Store:

1. eSleep: For those sleepers who like to mix and match the background noise they fall asleep to, eSleep is a good choice. It offers a wide variety of sounds and loops and enables up to three sounds to play simultaneously. eSleep is a good option for those who like variety and customization with their sleep sounds. This app is also available with varying levels of functionality in Lite (free) and Deluxe ($2.99) versions.

Cost: $0.99

2. pzizz sleep: Claiming to be your “personal sleep assistant,” pzizz is an app that aims to cure insomnia and keep users in a deep state of sleep throughout the night. The steep price can be partly attributed to the range of scientific techniques built-in, such as binaural beats and neurolinguistic programming, that creates more than one billion soundtrack combinations. With so many available, your mind won’t get bored by the monotony of a repetitive track every night.

Modes of play include Energizer, Meditation and Sleep, and they are fully customizable to desired length. If you are wary of the high price, there is a lite version currently on sale for $0.99.

Cost: $9.99

3. Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock: If you’re really committed to learning more about your sleep habits, Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock provides you with a tool for analyzing your sleep habits. By literally placing the iPhone next to you while you sleep, the app will monitor your movement and wake you in your lightest sleep phase so you arise feeling refreshed and well-rested.

Cost: $0.99

4. Alarm Tunes: Alarm Tunes is a straightforward app that enables users to wake up to any selection from their iTunes libraries. In addition to features such as screen dimming, alarm fade-in, shake to snooze and more, you can also use the app at night to fall asleep to music. It will automatically shut off after 30 minutes.

This app is also available as a free lite version but with fewer options and functions.

Cost: $0.99

5. Long Deep Breathing: Long Deep Breathing is a simple, no frills app that promotes the practice of deep breathing for better health. Using what’s essentially a breath gauge, you simply follow the visual cues for inhaling and exhaling. You can adjust the length of each breath and eventually increase the duration.

According to the app, the average person breathes about 12-16 times each minute. By practicing and working that number down, you will reap the benefits and calm the mind. Good information about the benefits of breathing is also included in the app.

Cost: $0.99
