Five Sleep Apps To Get You Dreaming

So many of us struggle with our sleep patterns, which can have a detrimental impact on your life. Here are some of the best sleep apps for you to try.

Getting enough sleep is the key to being healthy, happy, and successful in life. In fact, not getting enough sleep can cause weight gain, among other serious issues. 

Unfortunately, up to one in three adults report not getting enough sleep.

Many factors can prevent you from sleeping as much as you should. Luckily, there are smart solutions that can help. 

Check out these apps that will improve your powers of snooze.


Headspace App

Headspace is known for being a meditation app. Even though meditation and good sleep go hand in hand, Headspace has specific functions for sleep. 

Although full access to the app costs a hefty $95 a year, it has a lot of free content that you can take advantage of without paying a cent. 

If you struggle to fall asleep, try ‘sleep-casts’ by Headspace. These are podcast-type audio experiences that can help you visualise a calming scene. 

Think of them as bedtime stories for adults, and there is a new story every night. You can download Headspace for iOS or Android


Sleep Cycle App

Sleep Cycle is different from many other sleep apps because it doesn’t help you fall asleep. 

Sleep Cycle tells you your sleep patterns that can help you make better choices when it comes to sleeping. 

Have you ever woken up tired after what seemed like a great night’s sleep? 

That is what Sleep Cycle can help you with, and the good news is, the app is free and available for iOS and Android

In addition to tracking your sleep, the app can also wake you up gently when you are in your lightest sleep phase so that you’ll wake up refreshed. 



Pzizz can play a soothing dreamscape, similar to Headspace. However, with Pzizz, you can set a timer for the length of a sleep session that you need. 

The app has a great selection of sounds ranging from a combination of music, voiceovers, and sound effects.

While Pzizz is free for select features, it costs $60 per year for full access. However, you can try these for free during a seven-day trial.

The upgraded version has advanced features like the ability to choose different sounds. You can download Pzizz for iOS and Android.



Slumber is an excellent choice because it has a little bit of everything. 

There is a meditation-focused part, background noise for up to 10 hours, or a six-part bedtime story series. 

Their stories and meditations will never get old because new episodes are added weekly!

The free version of Slumber will offer you a handful of episodes for free, but for full access, you’ll need to pay $40 a year. It is one of the cheaper paid sleep apps. 

Unfortunately, it is only available for iOS.



Noisli is a noisy little app with the most simple features. It lets you choose from a bunch of different sounds such as thunder, wind, and white noise to put together a soundtrack.

You can even add sounds like the sounds of a coffee shop. 

The Noisli website is free; however, the app costs $2. 

If you use this app, keep in mind that it does drain your battery, so it may be a good idea to plug your phone in! 

You can create a new combo of sounds every night, or you can save your favorites for future use. You can download it on iOS and Andoird.

Getting good sleep is essential for humans to live their best lives! If you struggle to fall asleep or want to analyse your sleeping patterns, check out these sleep apps. 

There are many different approaches to sleeping better, so it may take trying a few to figure out what works best for you!
