[prMac.com] Fairfax, Virginia - Proactive Life LLC today is pleased to announce the release of Proactive Sleep 1.2 for iPhone and iPod touch devices. Proactive Sleep tracks your sleep and displays your sleep patterns when you set an alarm at night. You can then keep track of your sleep and develop goals that are unique to your sleep needs. We have recently released a major update and have lowered the price of the app.
The app provides users with personalized feedback designed to help improve sleep hygiene. Similar to diet and exercise, sleep is an important part of a healthy life-style. We hope that by giving you feedback on your behaviors just by doing everyday tasks like setting an alarm, you will get information to help you better understand and improve your sleep. The app also includes a bunch of sleep/wake promoting features. If you already set an alarm at night, why not get something out of it?
This app is based on the science of sleep, unlike many other self proclaimed smart phone alarms. How refreshed you feel is largely affected by two things: how much you are sleeping and the time of day. These components of sleep also have a major impact on the severity of "sleep inertia", or in other words, the grogginess experienced upon awakening from sleep. The application tracks the two components of sleep based on when you set your alarm and using a stimulating vigilance game it also tracks your sleep inertia.
* iPhone and iPod touch
* Requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later
