[prMac.com] Bern, Switzerland - Today AppZoo announced that a major update of its unique sleep app for the iPhone/iPod touch, WakeApp v2.0.0, is now available for download from Apple's App Store. The brand new version includes a smart audio recording feature that allows users to find out whether they snore or talk in their sleep or if any disturbing noise has an influence on their sleep quality.
WakeApp offers additional features that give people valuable insight into their sleep habits.
Everyone moves while sleeping. The more movement the lighter the sleep, the less movement the deeper the sleep. WakeApp is placed on the bed and records the body movements using the accelerometer. It uses a mathematic formula based on scientific sleep research (actigraphy) to determine the sleep phases from these body movements.
Intelligent Wakeup Window:
During an intelligent wakeup window of 30 minutes ending at the set alarm time, WakeApp choses the most suitable wakeup moment. The wakeup moment is adapted to the individual night's sleep. As a result and in contrast to other apps, WakeApp will not trigger the alarm upon the slightest movement at the start of the wakeup window.
Sleep Pattern Graph:
The recorded body movements form the input for calculating the sleep pattern. WakeApp distinguishes between light and deep sleep phases. The resulting sleep pattern is displayed as a graph and visualizes the sleep cycles. Most importantly, WakeApp does not generate random sleep cycles as opposed to other sleep apps. This fact can be easily verified by simply placing the iPhone on a table overnight.
In addition to calculating the sleep pattern, WakeApp also determines how long it took a user to fall asleep and to wake up. All this information is transformed into the sleep quality index (SQI), a value between 0 and 100 indicating the quality of the sleep. The SQI makes it easy to compare multiple sleep recordings relative to each other.
All in all, the latest update of WakeApp gives users a powerful app for the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to track their sleep habits and improve their sleep quality.
