If you’re like me, waking up early each morning can be a battle. I usually hit the snooze button at least three times each morning and I often wake up feeling like I didn’t get enough rest, even if I’ve gotten 8+ hours of sleep.
I was excited to hear about an app for iPhones, iPods and iPads that’s supposed to help reduce fatigue by waking you up during your lightest sleep stage.

As you sleep you go through different phases, ranging from deep sleep to light sleep. The phase you are in when your alarm goes off is critical for how tired you will feel when you wake up.
Since you move differently in bed during the different phases, Sleep Cycle can use the accelerometer in your iPhone to monitor your movement and determine which sleep phase you are in.
