Twilight is an app that helps you filter the blue lights out of your phone’s display. So what is the deal with this ‘Blue Light’? Research suggests that exposure to blue light before sleep may distort the natural sleep rhythm and cause inability to fall asleep. The cause is the photoreceptor in your eyes, called Melanopsin. This receptor is sensitive to a narrow band of blue light in the 460-480nm range which may suppress Melatonin production – a hormone responsible for your healthy sleep-wake cycles.

Sleep as Android

Sleep cycles are very crucial in getting proper sleep. The thing is our body likes ‘routine’. If you sleep at the same time every night, for the same duration every night, then your body will get used to to the cycle or routine. The next time that particular time approaches, your body will sense it and you will start to feel sleepy automatically.

This is why keeping track of your sleep cycle is crucial and there are apps to help to do the same. Sleep as Android is one such app. Though these apps are not perfect, they definitely do help in tracking and managing your sleep cycles. Sleep as Android tracks better than its rivals, keeps a lot of statistics, has wake-up verification tasks to prevent oversleeping, detects when you snore, records all your ‘sleeptalks’, and much more.

Pzizz – Deep Sleep & Power Nap

When you are trying to fall asleep, even the smallest of things can get quite annoying. The sound of the clock ticking, the faint voice of your neighbors talking, the sound of vehicles outside your house, etc. Attaining true silence is absolutely impossible (unless, of course, you have a lot of $$$). Have you ever noticed that some people fall asleep easier with the TV running in the background? Others like the sound of rain or the sound of a fireplace. Ambient noise (or background noise) apps offer just this. The presence of a background noise can drown out more distracting noises and make them less noticeable.

Pzizz offers sleep-optimized ambient noise. Using a mix of music, sound effects, and voiceovers, Pzizz promises to quiet your mind and put you to sleep. Earphones are recommended for the best experience. Get the app by clicking below:
