    Looking for alarm clock that is going to make your wake ups less difficult? You can try SleepWin, an interesting alternative to the integrated alarm application.

    It could work the same way as default Alarms applicaiton. Just setup an alarm for a desired time, select one of the unique melodies and thats it. Alarm will ring as usual.

    But SleepWin can do more. When application is left running during sleep period, it will track your motion and record sounds. After waking up, when recording is stopped, retrieved data could be reviewed in graphical form along with calculated sleep time and sleep debt. And you can listen sleep sounds, recorded during the night!

    From single records, which could be as well added manually, SleepWin later calculates historical statistics. This information could be used to monitor and improve sleep habits and schedule. Using this data, it is possible to quicky detect sleep deprivation and look for a way how to reduce it. There is also a build-in notification, that reminds you when it's time to go to bed, based on alarms set for a next day and user configured ideal sleep time.

    For each alarm it is possible to activate "smart alarm", which uses motion data recorded during sleep to estimate sleep phase. If light phase is detected and time to trigger alarm is close anyway, alarm is activated. Sleep time could be slightly reduced this way, but waking up should be easier and more pleasant.

    SleepWin's Alarm with the melodies set is free. The sleep tracking module and manual management of the sleep records has 14 days trial period.

    Nice app. At the moment i'm using sleep as android for sleep tracking. I'll try it to finally get off my android paperweight.

    Thank you for your development.

    Thanks. We are still far away from "sleep as an droid" functionality and maturity. Will work on it.

    This looks like an interesting. How's the battery drain when using this app?

    I'd recommend to use charger during sleep tracking, at least with unlocked screen. Accelerometer return no data under lock screen - so if you like to have a motion tracking it's only way for now.

    Would sensor core technology can solve the issue with the accelerometer?

    Sensor core don't provide access to raw accelerometer data. Only aggregated, like steps and so on.

    It's frustrating to see that WP limitation's turn down the good work for the interested developers on this platform.

    Sure - it's quite strict limitation, but every system have own limitations and leaks. On other hand - it's pleasure to work on UI in WP. And we have not any plans to turn down our work )

    If you leave your phone on the bed during night, I recommend you turn the background job of Internet Explorer. It was heating my Lumia 925 even with screen locked! I find it dangerous.
