How the iPad Can Improve Your Sleep

The iPad is an amazing device. Apple has already sold millions, and demand does not seem to be slowing down. Many people purchase the iPad because its a great reading device while others love the games that have been created for it, but I’m hear to tell you how the iPad can help you get a good night sleep.

It’s almost as if the iPad was designed to help people sleep better. Its larger screen makes it easier to view the clock and time that are often built into many iPad sleep applications and make it easy to see from across the room. Additionally, developers have flocked to fill the sleep app market and have already created over 92 sleep related applications. Below is a detailed look at a few applications for the iPad that can help you get a better night sleep.

Alarm Clock Pro HD

The clock features include 12 or 24 hour format, vertical and horizontal views, and even setting a playlist as an alarm. Now you can wake up to the music you love played continually.

I personally love the idea of waking up to something soft, and relaxing until a hard rock song comes up in my playlist queue to let me know its really time to get up and moving. The playlist isn’t the only feature, the clock includes like most custom alarms, the ability to snooze so you can quickly jump back into sleep.

Alarm Clock Pro HD is an amazing app that helps you end a perfect night sleep. What good is your rest, if you don’t get up in time to enjoy the day.

White Noise Pro

In addition to the 40 ambient sounds included with the app is the ability to mix your own. Create the perfect collection of sounds to put you in the middle of your own relaxation environment.

White Noise is designed to help you relax, and relaxation will help you sleep soundly.

Bedtime Stories Collection HD

Bedtimes Stories Collection HD hopes to help children and people of all ages enter a number of different fantasy worlds before resting their heads on a pillow. Note, that the app does require in-app purchases for many of the books, but organizing and keeping them all in one location for quick access and enjoyment is just what Bedtime Stories Collection HD was designed for.

Reduce your library, clutter in your rooms, and move your books and bedtime stories to your iPad.

Lucid Dreaming

The app is essentially an eBook and audio recording that uses Hypnosis to help you control your dreams. Inception helped us imagine the possibilities of a dream we could control, and this App believes it can guide us through the process of doing it ourselves.

While you may dream up crazy adventures with your new found Lucid Dreaming skills, I suggest you focus on relaxing dreams that will help you awake refreshed and ready for the day.
