Best App for Customizing Your Phone

SweetDreams

Free

Version: 1.6 Inizziativa Networks

You'll sleep like a baby with the Sweet-Dreams app. If (like most of us) you sleep with your phone on, this app allows you to tune your settings specifically to your needs. Want the phone ringer on but the rest of your alerts off? No problem. Want to get SMS messages but no phone calls? You'll have many ways to customize the way your phone alerts you. This is a really cool, complex, yet intuitive app. Enjoy your beauty rest.

ON THE MOVE: If you are up past your bedtime and do not want your phone to go into sleep mode, use the motion filter to keep the phone awake as long as you are still moving around. You can even set the sensitivity, so that a small movement like checking your phone for the time in the middle of the night will not deactivate the sleep mode.

SILENCE PLEASE: Activate the sound filter found on the Sound tab to make your phone go into sleep mode only if there is a level of silence that you set. SweetDreams periodically checks the noise level, and if it detects sound above the threshold it will deactivate sleep mode. You can customize the threshold to a level so that your snoring or breathing doesn't deactivate the sleep mode; however, talking in your sleep may be another matter!

ON THE SPOT: The Location tab of the Sweet-Dreams app is pretty straightforward. Simply set your desired sleeping location, and when your phone is in that location it will go into sleep mode. If you are traveling, reset your location by clearing the location list and setting a new activation zone. It's quick, easy, and effective. You can also choose map or satellite views.

TIME TO SLEEP: The General tab is where you can set some useful default behaviors. For example, when I'm at home, I silence the ring mode, disable WiFi and Bluetooth, and turn the screen off at 11:30 p.m. I deactivate sleep mode when I begin my day at 5:00 a.m. With the ability to toggle WiFi and Bluetooth on a schedule, this app will save your battery as well as give you peace and quiet!

Snooze on!

SweetDreams packs a powerful combination of filters to help you sleep even easier. For example, you can set your phone to go into sleep mode when you're in a certain location, not moving around much, and relatively quiet. If even one of these conditions is not met, your phone will stay awake and active. Alternatively, you can set it to go into sleep mode if only one of the conditions is met. It's completely customizable to your personal preference. Sweet-Dreams can also be a lifesaver if you're traveling, particularly when changing time zones. As we've all found out the hard way, even a three-hour time difference can be tough when you've got an early meeting or a late dinner. Tuning your SweetDreams settings can help ease the pain.
