Top 5 Sleep Apps in 2022

Top 5 Sleep Apps in 2022

Do you have trouble sleeping? Do you feel you’re getting less sleep than you need? Can Sleep apps help? If you are getting less sleep than you would like, know that you’re not alone. A survey carried out by Sleep Health Foundation revealed that about 60% of Australians have trouble sleeping at least once a week. The reasons for this sleeplessness are numerous. It could range from everyday physical stress to psychological or medical reasons.

5 Best Sleeping Apps 2022

While some people have trouble with sleeping altogether, others have disturbed sleep. Both cases can be equally problematic because having disturbed sleep will leave you feeling tired every time you wake.

To help solve this problem of insomnia, developers have made many sleeping apps that they claim help people sleep better. Sounds like a good idea right?


Do these sleep apps really work?

Before we can determine whether an app works or not, we must first ask what the developers of the app say about it. Then, we check if their promises match the actual performance of the apps.

Some sleep apps put you to sleep by playing calming sounds and emulating calming environments with audio. Others have the added feature of sleep tracking. According to the makers of some Sleep apps that have the sleep tracking feature, the app records your sleep pattern and triggers your waking alarm only when you’re in a light sleep state. If you’re awakened while in a deep sleep state, you will wake up tired.

A study published on PubMed found that standalone apps that claim to track sleep are not very accurate. Although they generally put you to sleep quite well, their estimation of deep sleep and light sleep moments can be inaccurate sometimes.

Having said that, there’s one thing these sleep apps do quite well, and that improves your sleep time. The built-in sleep diaries hold you accountable, just like sleep diaries that are prescribed for insomnia patients. I guess we can conclude that sleep apps are quite useful. This brings us to the main question.


What are the best sleep apps in 2022?




The SleepScore app uses a scientific-based approach to track your sleep patterns every night which helps you get the sleep you need to feel your best the following day.

As the most advanced sleep tracker on this list, SleepScore uses sonar technology to measure sleep habits from your nightstand. With the data, users would receive personalised advice and recommendations for improving sleep and set goals to maintain good and restful nights. 

SleepScore is available on iOS and Android.

Wrap Up

Sleep apps are quite effective at improving sleep. For the best results, apply them appropriately. However, note that they are not replacements for medical procedures. If you are experiencing insomnia repeatedly, it’s better to see a doctor for help.

Besides, sleep apps are categorised as entertainment apps and not health or medical. This means that they’re mostly not FDA tested or approved. You should only use them to make your sleeping better.

Sleep well!
