[prMac.com] Oak Brook, Illinois - Viaden Mobile, an acknowledged developer for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, introduces Smart Alarm Clock: sleep cycles & noise recording - an app that not only helps users optimize their sleep but also never lets them down in the morning.
Most people do not even imagine what poor sleep may result in. Headaches, depression, drowsiness, obesity are only the tip of the iceberg. Lack of sleep or, on the contrary, too much sleep are a common problem millions of people worldwide suffer from. Taking medications may indeed help, but there are easier ways to improve sleeping habits before resorting to drugs.
Up-to-date technologies allowed Viaden Mobile to combat the problem in a science-backed and effective way. Finding a solution to the problem of sleep disorders, wasn't an easy task. However, thorough study of the issue, vast experience and professionalism of the developers helped Viaden Mobile come up with a tool, Smart Alarm Clock, that is sure to provide many people with that healthy sleep they lack.
Our sleep falls into three phases that vary in deepness. Research shows that there is a certain sleep phase when waking up is the easiest. This phase is called Rapid Eye Movement sleep, or REM sleep. During REM, the activity of brain's neurons resembles much that during waking hours which makes the phase the perfect time for waking up.
The monitoring of sleep phases is the key to solving the problem of over- and undersleeping. As long as REM is known, there is nothing more achievable than a healthy sleep. Smart Alarm Clock was specially designed to track the sleep phases, detect REM and go off at the moment when waking up is the smoothest. Using the in-built accelerometer, Smart Alarm Clock registers the users' movements in their sleep and identifies in which of the three sleep phases they are.
Another handy feature of the app is its noise recording that can be played back later. Noise recording is the ideal way to find out the causes of sleep disturbance. Together with REM monitoring, it is an ideal tool for adjustment of the sleeping environment.
There are several modes available in the app, 3 for iPod and 4 for iPhone. Depending on personal preferences, users can choose to be woken up at the set time or at the comfortable bout of REM within the fixed time frame, with or without monitoring of sleep cycles.
"We all know that healthy sleep is crucial for effective functioning throughout the day. This is why we channeled our efforts into creating the app that will function faultlessly, help people understand their sleeping pattern and improve it," says Yuri Gurski, Viaden Mobile CEO. "Also, we have been lately hearing about the claims that the in-built iPod alarm fails to go off at the right time. We believe that we are offering a great option for those who want to be woken up at the time they prefer."
