Description

Slumber offers a combination of experiences to help the user to fall asleep, including a meditation focus, a six-part bedtime story series, or the sound of a warm jacuzzi. The user can also choose a background noise (like rain or the ocean) to play for up to 10 hours after the main track ends. New sleep-inducing stories and meditations are added each week with the premium version (there are several free episodes available).

 

Overview

Once the user downloads the Slumber app, the user can create a personal profile and listen to the introductory explanation provided by the app. Slumber offers the user the option of various different sounds, music, stories, and meditations in order to help them to fall asleep and to stay asleep. The user interface is intuitive, simple, and easy to navigate.

If the user is unsure where to begin, there is a “popular episodes” category to help them make a good selection. In addition to the large library of sleep meditations, there is also an option to add background effects like rain, fire, rustling leaves, etc. If the user wants their sleep guide to play a bit longer, they can click the “loop episode” button to hear it once, twice, or on repeat.

 

Pros

Nearly all of the narrators featured on the Slumber sleep app are tranquil and relaxing. Every meditation episode displays the name of the narrator so that the user can easily keep track of the ones that they prefer to listen to. The user interface is intuitive, simple, and easy to navigate.

 

Cons

The App is free for 10+ episodes but has a $40/year charge for full access.
