SleepSense Beta - sleep cycle monitor and alarm
This is a beta application which monitors your sleep cycle, and sets a gently increasing alarm to go off at up to 30 minutes before your set alarm time (during your lightest sleep phase so that it's easier to wake up fresh). If you are interested in testing it, please download and install the CAB here:
CAB link removed because its a very old version, a much improved version will be released on this thread very soon.
You can click Menu>Export Chart as a JPG image, and Menu>Export CSV to see the raw data. Please include the chart and raw data if you send me a bug report etc.
Method of calculating lightest sleep phase: alarm can go off up to 30 minutes earlier than the set alarm time if you become more alert than you were at the lightest phase of the previous sleep cycle. If alarm does not go off early, as a failsafe it will always go off at the set time. The alarm does not affect any other alarms you may have set, so I would recommend setting some other alarm too as a failsafe.
Developers: I would appreciate it if I could find a keen .NET Compact Framework developer out there to open-source and maintain this project because I don't have any more time to work on this.
