    Smart Alarm is INCREDIBLE

    I had heard about this app a while ago, but I saw from the comments that it wasn't working on the droid. Well apparently a few days ago it got a new update and now works with the Moto Droid. What this app does is analyze your movements with the accelerometer, and figures out what sleep cycle you are in. Then, it wakes you up when you're in your lightest sleep mode. I tried it out today and it worked fantastic.

    With the accellerometer? So, you have to sleep with your phone?

    I love my droid, but....

    Haha yes, I love my phone so much I sleep with it. I just shove it in under my pillowcase and even though I have a really soft bed and it seems to analyze very well.

    The only other option to waking up in the correct sleep cycle is a Sleeptracker watch for $150. So free app vs. $150....hrmm...

    gentle alarm does something similar without requiring you to sleep with it. Basically what it does is allow you to set another alarm at a much lower volume 30 minutes (or a little more if you like) before the actual alarm. As you move towards the end of your sleep, your sleep cycles become shorter, taking about an hour. So you move between light sleep and deep sleep about every 30 minutes. So if you hear the much quieter alarm and wake up to it, it means you were in light sleep and will wake up more refreshed. But if youre in deep sleep at this time, youre going to sleep through that light alarm anyway, and wake up when the actual alarm goes off 30 minutes later, at which point you would be in light sleep. The logic is getting up 30 minutes earlier than you planned, but in light sleep, will leave you more refreshed than waking up 30 min later, but being groggy from deep sleep. I use it, works well. The only thing is the free trial doesnt let you have an alarm on wednesdays, but you can use a regular alarm for one day out of the week if you dont want to pay. Thats what I do. Just sharing some info on alternatives

    So why then couldn't you just use the regular android alarm and set one to go off thirty mins earlier at a light volume and if you don't wake up to it, no big deal. Then set the other to go off normaly at your regular time? would this not achieve the same thing?
