If you are anything like us, you certainly have nights when you’re staring at the ceiling praying your eyelids will get heavy soon!

But not to worry, we’ve compiled a short list of the latest Apps to help you resolve this problem if you haven’t found a good book to suffice?


Digipill uses psychoacoustics to allow you to unlock your subconscious and change your perception.
There are no gimmicks or binaural beats involved; instead, Digipill uses completely unique techniques inside carefully crafted audio ‘pills’ which typically play for around half an hour – although the effects can often last for much longer.

The Digipill technique has been specifically designed to help with real life issues including giving up smoking, building up confidence, and of course getting to sleep. The technique can even be used to approach natural highs not unlike that of some physical pills.




Every morning, the Beddit SleepScore shows you how you slept. It’s an intuitive scale that goes from 0 to 100 and gives you a direction – just like you’d be using something as simple as a weight scale.

Their data scientists carefully examined thousands and thousands of nights slept on Beddits around the world. They were able to identify a separate zone for good sleep. We call it the Green Zone.

Reaching the Green Zone means you had a good night’s sleep. No more guesswork, you’ll just know. And you know how to take it from there.

Beddit has been designed so that you wouldn’t notice that there’s anything additional in your bed. There is also a cool sensor strip that is ultra-thin and fits perfectly into all kinds of beds.

Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock

Your movements vary with each sleep phase. Sleep Cycle uses the phone’s accelerometer to identify sleep phases by tracking movements in bed. Sleep Cycle then wakes you up during your lightest sleep phase, using a predefined 30-minute alarm window.
