Forget about counting sheep, an endless layover on your trip to the Land of Nod, or courting the good graces of Mr. Sandman. All you need is the Sleepy Time app for Android and you’ll find yourself floating into dreamtime on the waves of your favorite sounds in just a few easy steps.
Step One: Choose Your Sleepy Time Sounds
Sleepy Time offers a wide assortment of audio tracks specially designed to lead you gently into the arms of slumber. You can choose from various sounds including the beach, birds, crickets, and white noise. Once you’ve selected your favorites, download them onto your device and you’re 20 winks to 40. Sleepy Time is also able to mix up to three sounds so you can create your own personalized sleep sound profile.
Sound options include the following. In many cases, there are several different versions of each sound.
Things That Whir, Hum, Chime, Tick, and Tock
Air conditioner, ceiling fan, train, driving, fish tank, highway, clock, microwave, radio static, truck engine, vacuum cleaner, typing, washer and dryer, white noise, pink noise, brown noise, wind chimes, airplane cabin, sprinkler, clothes dryer
Waterfall, babbling brook, river, campfire, camping, wind, fountain, distant thunder, thunder storm, rain, beach, river, under water
Frogs, birds, cicadas, crickets, whale, dolphin, purring cat, heartbeat
Urban noise, farm house, and even snoring
Step Two: Set the Sleep Timer
After choosing your favorite sounds, set the sleep timer. You can choose increments in minutes or hours. Or, if you feel like sleeping on the beach or are missing your cat while away from home, select the Continuous play option and you’ll hear the soothing sound of waves or purrs all night long. The sleep timer continues to run after the screen turns off.
