Reviews

Introduction

Never under-estimate the positive effects of the power nap, which is exactly what this next app addresses. The Sleep Cycle power nap for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone has been designed to help users enjoy a power nap and wake them at just the right time so they are left feeling energized and ready to take on the rest of the day. Naps can be wonderful for giving you that time to recharge but if you nap too long you’re left feeling groggy and more tired than before you fell asleep. This is where the importance of the power nap comes into play.
