Like a whole lot of the world, I suffer from insomnia quite a lot (insert joke about, “Who enjoys it?”).

Because of this, I’ve tried just about every possible sleep aid on the market. Tools like Ambient reduce me to the lowest common denominator, and white noise is just irritating.

But as it turns out, the best possible sleep aide is in fact right in your hand. It’s an app called Sleep Genius, from Sleep Genius LLC, and though it may come on strong—promising the best night’s sleep you’ve ever had—it does deliver where needed.

If you’re curious, then skip on down below the break for our full review!

Concept and Functionality

The core idea behind Sleep Genius is based on real scientific research: The developers make a point to tell us this about fifteen times in all of the app’s advertisements. But, we’re inclined to believe the hype.

Essentially, the app takes you all the way through an entire sleep cycle. It will guide you to sleep using prerecorded sounds (like white noise, but science-esque) and then cradle you into consciousness at a desired time using the alarm.

In our opinion, the alarm is perhaps the real draw here.

The app uses a slow revive technique that brings you out of sleep over a five minute interval, rather than all at once.

And based on the mass of overwhelmingly positive reviews from other users, we have to conclude that the trick really works.

If you’re looking for even more features, Sleep Genius also comes with a Power Nap feature that can be unlocked in-app. This sequence is shorter, but uses the same methods as described above.

All in all, Sleep Genius is a solid entry into the field, and if we had to pick it over a smattering of the most popular pills, we most certainly would.

Design and Interface

We’ve seen a lot of alarm clock applications for Android over the years. However, this one is perhaps the snazziest, and it arrives with such a simple package.

Obviously, you’re getting a lot more than just a basic alarm clock. With that in mind, we greatly appreciated the Sleep tab, which compiles all the app’s features into one, highly useable pane.

Before you go to sleep at night, simply boot up the app, use the single page to set your desired preferences, and then rock away baby!

It’s streamlined, smooth, and above all, incredibly easy to handle. Just the way we like it!

Overall Value

Now, Sleep Genius won’t be for everyone—it just goes without saying. Still, if you have any interest in seeing what it has in store for you, the free price tag is quite a boon. You can have the application at no charge off the Google Play Store, and there’s no harm in trying.

If you’re like me, you’ll have a delightful night’s sleep with the app. Otherwise, you’re not out any money, and you can say you tried. Which strikes us a delicious bargain the whole way around!
