We all use our smartphone as an alarm clock to wake us up each and every day. And for the most part, we all use the built-in clock app to wake up. But there are plenty of other great alarm apps available in the Play Store, including this Good Morning Alarm Clock app. Which the developer says it will intelligently wake you up. This is done by placing your phone closer to you to allow the alarm clock to monitor the signals from your body, and wake you up softly when you are in the lightest phase of sleep.
This will help you to start your day in a god mood and wake up refreshed and energized. Both of which are important. The app will give you detailed analysis so you can see an easy-to-read graph to track your hours slept, and analyze the quality of the sleep that you got that night. Some of the alarm tunes included in the app are gentle and natural sounding, this is to also help you start your day off energized. Additionally, you can choose your own music that is stored on your phone. Good Morning Alarm Clock can also use relaxing sounds or white noise, to lull your mind and body. There is a nightstand mode included, which allows you to use your smartphone as a bedside clock if you don't need to get stats on your goodnight sleep. As a bonus, it will provide you with weather conditions for the day, so you can plan whether you need to dress warm or even bring an umbrella.
So how does this work? Well the developer explains the process by saying that we all go from different phases of sleep, from light to deep. And that the secret of waking up rested and feeling more energetic upon awakening is to wake up when you are in a light sleep. Interestingly, this app uses the accelerometer that is built into every smartphone to monitor your movements while you are sleeping, and that's how it detects what phase you are in. It will create a 30-minute window before your wake-up time you set, and the alarm goes off within this window while you're in the lightest phase.
This is a free app, but there are some in-app purchases which are just $1.99 per item. Additionally, you can pick up Good Morning Alarm Clock from the Google Play Store today.
