A reason to sleep with your iPhone, Sleep Cycle

One thing I think people world wide will agree on is that the morning alarm clock is the most annoying part of anyones life. It always seems to go off just slap bang in the middle of that brilliant dream! 
For years scientists have been monitoring sleep patterns and analysing sleep cycle’s, and now – using your iPhone’s accelerometer you can now monitor your sleep cycle, and set your alarm to go off at it’s optimum time!! Now – before you panic, thinking “my alarm won’t go off till lunch time!” the alarm time sits inside a 30 minute window.
Strategically placing your iPhone next to your pillow on the bed will enable Sleep Cycle to monitor and graph your current movements and figure out your sleep pattern.
A typical users graph looks something like the graph you can see to the right of this text >

As you can see from the graph, judging by the accelerometers movement it’s able to figure out in which stage of sleep you are currently in. When you reach the optimum point, it sounds the alarm, enabling you to JUMP out of bed as bright and breezy as a Saturday morning after a lye in.
The app is currently selling at an introductory rate of $99/59p, so you’ve got nothing to loose! Test it out, and comment back on how you got on!
