I love SleepTown! I’m improving my sleeping habits and making sleep a priority.
Enjoying this app
by RoseAppleDew on 2021/02/21 21:26
Downloaded a few days ago and love it so far! My goal to build a town outweighs my want to stay up. I find it helpful to have a semi-set sleep schedule.
Helps set bedtime for my ADHD
by Bradley Beschta on 2021/02/17 16:54
Helps set bedtime for me specifically I was always a night owl and my gf was not happy i would stay up all night and sleep all day in return. This app helps motivate me to get a routine sleep schedule back!
이게 되네,,?

이거 한다고 잠을 규칙적으로 자겠냐고 생각 해 앱을 알고 난 한참 후에도 사지 않았었는데 요즘 슬립사이클이 너무 무너져서 그냥 한 번 시도 해보려고 샀다. 근데 정말 이게 뭐라고 잠 잘 자서 좋은 건물 지으면 기분이 좋고 제대로 못 자서 건물 하나 부수면 절망스럽다 언제까지 갈지는 모르겠지만 일단 지금까지 일주일 정도 쓴 결과 정말 도움이 된다ㅋ

I’ve seen many different kinds of sleeping apps, this is definitely the most interesting one, not only the features are cute and easy to use, the whole idea of collecting the house is just cute
I love this app
by theesavvy1 on 2021/01/31 20:17
I use this app almost every day and it has been instrumental in helping me get more sleep. My biggest problem is usually telling myself “okay 5 more minutes” and then scrolling through different apps on my phone for the next 2 hours. But since this app gives you a tangible reward for not doing that, I’m finding that it’s so much easier to fall asleep. 5/5 stars, highly recommend for people like me who need motivation to stay off their phones.
No Apple Watch version

I’ve used Forest for forever and always thought the app concept would translate well to regulating sleep. Thank you for this!
Great App! Widget?
by Kidswagkillabeng on 2021/01/23 16:54
Love this app! Just wanted to ask the developer though- are there plans to have a widget similar to your app Forest? I’d love to see my town on my screen beside my Forest. Thank you!
Must... Gamify... Every aspect of life
by JenelleGloria on 2021/01/21 04:25
Yes, I don’t care enough about my health to maintain motivation to keep a consistent sleep schedule. “It is good for me” is somehow not enough of a reason to move an abstract intention into action. But for some reason my brain has no problem mustering up a feeling of urgency to create my prosperous virtual town. So, I must hack my brain, so that the lame things it cares about (virtual towns) can actully contribute to my well being. Enter, sleeptown. A nice complement to forest. I only just downloaded it yesterday but I did sleep last night and stayed off my phone, and now I gotta keep the streak going. I’m entering the review to get a free new building. But everything I am saying here is true and certified accurate. Happy sleeping

by yeyessis on 2021/01/14 15:58
I noticed that my entire day can be ruined just simply by not sleeping well. I figured that the app costs as much as a soda, so what can it hurt right? This app has already changed my life! I’m in a Doctorate program which means I’m responsible for a lot. It also means that I viewed my time at night as my only free time (8pm to sometimes 1 or 2am) and I’d be back up by 6:30 - my sleep schedule, however, was not very responsible. My phone was the culprit. Once I got this app, I got the best sleep of my life. This app IS self-care!!🤗

Amazing
by forestytrees on 2020/12/01 19:49
This is an amazing app. I have had much better habits after using it. I had some days when I just got very tired and needed to sleep around 8 or 9 pm, which is more than 2 hours before my set goal for going to bed. Then the app would tell me that I can only start to build 2 hours before. Sometimes the body’s need is not that strict- I had hoped for some flexibility in terms of how early I could start building- to go sleep earlier is no harm- but went over board surely hurts.
Amazing!

Great app could use improvements though.
by Maddy Renee on 2020/10/20 19:29
I love the app! It helps to keep me on my sleep schedule without a problem. But the one thing that irks me is that fact that when you forget to say you got up there is no way to change it. So you just get a destroyed building even though you got up on time. Other than that I love it.
Nice
by Bugcat47 on 2020/10/19 09:05
Has helped me with maintaining a healthy sleeping schedule. Would be nice if buildings had name and there was more to the big town function.

by lavenderchai on 2020/10/13 11:11
This app is good, I love all the buildings and the approach it takes to motivate you to sleep. However there could be improvements. First of all I think it would be nice to have an option to choose whether you are strict about bedtime but not wake up time or vice versa. For busy people like me I use this app mainly to motivate me to go to sleep on time. Most of the time I wake up at the same time but obviously I still oversleep sometimes — but this is a good thing for me because of how sleep deprived I am, and I wouldn’t like to be penalized for that.
Interesting

by Hollagim on 2020/10/06 15:56
Just started using the app, it is good on one end and that is incentivizing you to be in bed at the proper time which is half the equation. I hope the developers add a widget like they did for Forest. All in all pretty good.
great app
by WhyAreAllTheNicknamesChosen? on 2020/10/04 02:23
sometimes the alarm doesn't go off and my building ends up destroyed but otherwise it's overall a very good app and i live the circle feature.
SleepTown is a fun way to encourage good sleep hygiene!

Besides feel great in the morning from getting enough sleep, how else are you going to get rewarded for doing this adulting task right?
So helpful!
by ChloozyB on 2020/09/29 04:30
This app was well worth the price, it helped me create a healthy balance of sleep in no time. It’s not strict if you don’t want it to be, and doesn’t punish you harshly for skipping a day or something like that. It’s super cute and has all different sorts of features on it. I recommend if you would like an accountability app for sleep :)
It is soooo motivating.

So far I love it. It’s been a great way to keep me from going on my phone at bedtime and a great tool to use to get up in the morning on time. My only problem is the alarm hasn’t been going off in the morning so maybe I need to check on the settings other then that it’s great.
Makes going to bed on time fun!
by jennalynnowens on 2020/09/01 11:55
Forces me not to use my phone while in bed, and when you wake up on time, you are greeted with a new construction for your little town. It’s great!
Downloading time
by jacobdnolan on 2020/08/31 03:11
I never write reviews but this was too frustrating. When loading my town it would sometimes load for 3-5 minutes on WiFi or cellular data. I don’t know what’s going on with it but it’s pretty frustrating so I just don’t use it anymore.

Pretty simple to use, and it really encourages me to go to bed on time because I don’t want to miss out on a new building!

by 20130331 on 2020/08/14 04:27
Using SleepTown helps me from opening my phone when I have trouble sleeping and I definitely see a difference in my sleep habits. It’s also a fun little game which also motivates me to use the app to help me sleep. There have been no problems!
Probably my favorite app?
by Cptfunk on 2019/04/02 18:01
I genuinely don’t even know if I had this regular of a sleep schedule when I was a kid. I have ADHD and would regularly spend until four in the morning researching whatever that week’s new interest was on my phone instead of sleeping. The novelty of getting new buildings, the frustration of a house collapsing, and the desire to keep consistent so I have the funds to configure new areas of my town are all strong enough to keep me from blowing it off, which is a pretty huge feat. Also, when I did hit a patch of not using it for awhile, I discovered the Circles function, and having friends build projects with me gave me the added element of public accountability. The only fundamental way this app could be better would be if you were somehow able to download it onto other devices and your desktop so that you can’t hop from your phone to somewhere else, but also, like, an app can’t actually be a full adult for you, so 🤷🏼‍♀️. (That said, developers, if you could give the option to edit the sleep goals for Circles groups every couple of weeks in case of slight schedule changes in the group, I would love you forever.) Anyway, it’s an incredible app, and my mental and physical health are measurably better for it.
Surprisingly addictive (the good kind)
by xHALFRICANx on 2019/04/14 01:36
Alright so it’s not a game, nor will it require time away from anything. I was first brought onto SleepTown by way of Forest which has changed the way I use my iPhone for the better! SleepTown has not only surpassed my expectations but believe or not I am going to bed on time and not spending time on my iPhone (how simple that may sound I know there are millions of us who can’t due to the phone addiction) then waking up to a surprisingly building that provides me with a weird satisfaction that I slept and obtained a building for my town. Look, this is probably not for anyone who could give a rip about spending countless hours on their phones while in bed or could care less about sleep (if this is you... life catches up), but if you are in the class of “I care about the quality of sleep and want to break away from giving my attention to a device that is a time sucking, data hog, irrelevant piece of metal and plastic”... then I would suggest SleepTown.
A bit too strict
by Mains bodkin on 2018/12/05 11:03
It’s a nice app but it’s so strict, if you miss by a couple minutes, even if you still get to bed in roughly the same time, the building will be destroyed. Another thing I don’t like is that once you missed my sleeping time that’s it, you failed the night and there’s nothing else you can do. But really, even if I missed my sleeping time by hours, it still helps to just click “build” and put down the phone when I do decide to sleep. I want to use this app for helping me get away from my phone, and i still want to use this feature even if I did miss my sleeping time. But right now “missing you sleeping time” is just the end of the story. I don’t even want to open this app after not being able to build a single house for three days. There’re tracking apps more forgiving rewarding and helpful than this one. ————————— What I think might help is to add a period in which you want to go to bed, then a deadline by which you have to get off your phone. Say you want to sleep at 10pm, it may help to give you a period between 9:30 to 10:30 in which you can hit sleep and start building the house, but still allow you to have some flexibility, say I can still reply to a text at 10:05. But then by 10:30 is the hard deadline after which the house will be destroyed if you look at your phone again.
I want to like this app
by allspice75 on 2019/10/06 06:09
So there are definitely things about this app that I like! It’s very cute and a fun way to incentivize not being on your phone before bed. I have the sister app, Forest, for concentration and staying off my phone during the day and that one is perfect in my mind! But this one still needs some changes to be perfect in my mind. I’ve seen a few other reviews suggest having a sleep time window and a wake up window so you don’t automatically fail if you’re off by 15 or 30 minutes, which I agree would be really nice. The strictness of destroying your building if you leave after you decide to go to sleep is effective and I think that should stay, but there definitely needs to be a 30 minute cushion between sleep time and wake up time. My only other complaint is the days off feature. I’ve selected Saturday and Sunday as my days off since that’s when I get to stay up later and sleep in later, but I still get notifications on those days to go to bed in 30 minutes and missing those days still breaks my streak. I hope that some improvements can be made cause I really want to like this app!! It’s just hard to build a sleep habit when it won’t give you weekends or any leeway.
Wish there was more flexibility
by Stephiiiiiii on 2018/05/31 03:48
I’m really bad at staying on my phone when I’m in bed so an app like this is really helpful in helping build a habit. However, there are a few things that really make it hard for me to like this app. I really enjoy the “game” aspect of it and how it’s a challenge because it really incentivizes me, but it’s just not realistic to check-in when I go to bed every single time. For example, tonight I missed going to bed by 1 minute and that automatically constitutes as a failure. The problem with this is that now I don’t have an incentive to not be on my phone. I could just move my sleep time to 11pm, but that defeats the purpose of it. While ideally my sleep time is 10:30pm, it’s just not realistic for me to go to bed at exactly that time and sometimes it’s just a matter of forgetting to check in (even with the notification). I would like there to be an option for a “smaller” incentive if you miss your bedtime goal but still don’t want to use your phone at night. i.e. maybe it should count towards half a building or something similar. Unfortunately, this app just isn’t working completely for me at this time but I will keep on using it with the hope it will help.
Must... Gamify... Every aspect of life
by JenelleGloria on 2021/01/21 04:25
Yes, I don’t care enough about my health to maintain motivation to keep a consistent sleep schedule. “It is good for me” is somehow not enough of a reason to move an abstract intention into action. But for some reason my brain has no problem mustering up a feeling of urgency to create my prosperous virtual town. So, I must hack my brain, so that the lame things it cares about (virtual towns) can actully contribute to my well being. Enter, sleeptown. A nice complement to forest. I only just downloaded it yesterday but I did sleep last night and stayed off my phone, and now I gotta keep the streak going. I’m entering the review to get a free new building. But everything I am saying here is true and certified accurate. Happy sleeping
Great motivator
by Randomuser53728162 on 2019/05/14 13:46
I enjoy this app almost as much as I enjoy the Forest app. Really amazing how much not wanting to see a building destroyed can motivate me to go to bed and wake up on time. The only real downside is that I’ve built pretty much all of the buildings, and I don’t really have that novelty factor anymore to look forward to…another minor thing: if any new designs for buildings are currently in development, I would request some buildings to have entrances that face southeast. Pretty much all the buildings right now have entrances that faces southwest, which make the towns that I design a bit limited in their orientation. Perhaps you could allow us to turn the buildings, like we can turn the other items (benches, tables, etc.) And finally, like the Forest app, it would be great to be able to have a daily, weekly, monthly, and annual view so that I can have a better sense of my progress; right now only the weekly view is available. Thank you for an amazing app and all your work!
Not lively enough
by PopMyBubble on 2019/07/09 05:00
It needs more motivation and determination, as well as consequences. Yes you will not end up with a built building; however, it is not like the app “forest” created by the same developers. “Forest” allows for productivity and its major use due to the consequence from disturbing the growing plant. If you do not complete the process, the plant will die and destroy the forest’s beauty. This dead plant is turned to ash and costs a lot of coins to get rid of. This gives a strong motivator in not breaking the process of the plant growth. What would make this sleep app affective is if it was more lively. For example, towns people going in the buildings. Transportation driving around. Building roads. Build a park for the townspeople to roam and play in. Build a beach or desert. There are multiple things that could be added to make this app a lot more fun and entertaining. It doesn't have to be something that requires a lot of time, but also have a bit more involvement. These are just some suggestions to help make this app grow.
Just doesn’t work
by LHB0911 on 2018/01/27 13:32
I’ve been trying to use this app for a week. First, the alarm never went off for the first five days. I emailed the developer but got no response. Then it finally did go off - on the day that was supposed to be “off”. So on Saturday I was woken up at 5:45am, finally figured how to turn it off (after waking everyone else up) and went back to sleep. When I did get up, it told me the building had failed. I’ll live with the disappointment, but in terms of tracking habits through visuals, the app clearly doesn’t work. Since it requires me to be on my phone just before bedtime and right as I get up, creates any level of frustration in between (including nearly making me late for work), and doesn’t actually track any sleep habits whatsoever or with any degree of accuracy, I’m not sure this was worth spending the extra money on. It’s too bad, because I really like Forest, which has helped me be more productive at work. But this app seems like it could use some serious re-conceptualizing before it could actually be useful.
Good app but...
by AriaRose7 on 2019/06/20 16:41
Forcing the user to go back into the app to keep progress is an amazing feature, but here is where SleepTown looses a star for me, the two hour waking up period before the alarm goes off and 15 minutes after wake up is to much, for me at least. I wish that there would be more customization with the time allowed before and after the set sleeping period. This app is totally worth the money though. I would love to see continuous updates, I also think they should add a feature where you can set a sleep goal and it adjust your schedule according to your starting sleep time and slowly adjust to reach your goal over a series of nights or whatever set time the user wants. Which goes back to my key complaint, customization. All in all I love this app, and I can’t wait to see how it gets better.
Getting used to.
by SolidTwinkie on 2018/04/01 15:34
Getting used to the app. Really helps me stay off my phone until my alarm goes off which was a big problem of mine before. As soon as I opened my eyes I would want to check social media or mail even if I was planning on going back to sleep. Now I know my building would be destroyed and I didn’t not just put 6 hrs of hard work for that to happen. I would have given this 5 starts but i think the phone is very sensitive, this morning I woke up to a destroyed building but I don’t recall using my phone at all. I’ll have to keep using the app and maybe place the phone a bit farther away so I don’t accidentally move it (I’m thinking that was the case here). Anyways I’m going to go back to sleep for 7 hrs to build another building since the one from last night got destroyed.
Once upon a time there was a girl who had trouble sleeping
by RocherGuo on 2019/06/12 05:35
When I was a senior in college, there was a period of time that I was lost in life. Didn’t know where I’m going after graduation, didn’t know what’s coming for me later in life. I had trouble sleeping, every day and every night. At around three in the morning where my panic peaks, I would pick up my phone and go online shopping (it is that bad, trust me) till about five when I started to see light shine through my window...... Sleep town helped me get my life back. Two years later right now, I have moved to a new city, started a new life, and am proud of the tiny town of 225 buildings in my pocket 😊
Frustrating/fussy and negative
by Composer123 on 2017/12/27 13:08
On one hand I love the building aspect of this app-I've been using it about a month. On the other there are some fundamental design flaws that run for to good sleep hygiene; some of which would happen in any sleep promoting app and others which they could improve. It's never pleasant to wake up to "you have failed" if you oversleep. The alarm does not adjust with any change you make to your target wake up time. The alarm itself is wonky, and doesn't always go off. The controls are fussy and there are far too many rules to do the simple task the app is supposed to do. You have to remember to push "sleep" every night before you go to sleep. I don't see a way around this but it's one more thing to think of when you're in bed. Finally, some creative mind will have to come up with an app that doesn't compel you to be on your phone. Screens are a big part of the reason many of us have bad sleep habits! Plus, it would be nice not to have to be on your phone when you wake up, too. As it stands you have to unlock your phone, go into the app, and activate it (and then collect your coins, so you're immediately playing a game right when you wake up). In short, too much fuss for a simple goal without a lot of incentive.
Tone of the copy can be improved
by Paola Bueso on 2018/10/16 01:46
I wish the app was much more encouraging. It seems the tone of the copy is out of place at times. It is discouraging to see the message that you failed. I had a long day, tried my best to be on time, was a few minutes late and now I have to see that discouraging message. Perhaps if it said something like, "you didn’t make it on time today, try again tomorrow", I would feel more encouraged to continue using the app to improve my sleeping habits. Please improve the tone of the copy, it would make a world of a difference in terms of user experience.
Missing bedtime
by sleepypanda23645 on 2020/01/14 07:15
I overall like this app, but my main issue is that once you miss the sleeping time you totally lose out on using any of the apps features. I use this app to keep me off my phone at night and it would be nice to be able to turn on the sleep mode even if you missed your set bedtime. I wake up multiple times during the night and having the app dissuades me from using my phone when I wake up, but if I miss the bedtime I end up not being able to take adventure of that feature. My suggestion would be to allow users to still use sleep mode even if the bed time has been missed. Maybe they don’t earn points from it, but we can still take advantage of the apps features ( which is the most important part of me
Clever app, definitely works
by Bbfitz99999 on 2018/06/19 10:40
I downloaded this app because I’d been having trouble falling asleep at a reasonable time, and it totally works! I’m actually excited to go to sleep on time now, and every morning I wake up eager to see what new building I got. I do wish the app were a little more explicit with instructions, since I didn’t even know I could build my own city until the fifth day of using it 🙈 I hope the app will be updated with new types of buildings!!!! The more variety the better in my opinion. Seriously though, this app is an excellent way to build healthy sleeping habits, and well worth the money
More fun & effective than it seems
by Kanda629 on 2019/05/28 11:13
I thought I’d download this and immediately stop caring about my little town (aka sleep goals) as I usually do with these types of “games,” but the first time I destroyed a building by oversleeping I had a real sad! The only thing I’d like to see changed is to be able to adjust the sleep goals without resetting progress because I’d like to slowly move my sleep time earlier in the night, but the game is fine because I CAN still beat the sleep deadline and keep progress. It’s just harder when nobody is telling me to, lol! Great game, and I’m glad I learned about it through forest!
Too time restrictive
by D2Leeson on 2020/04/27 09:14
I understand the goal is to help the average person establish the common habit of consistent sleep, but I work a varied schedule and apply a polyphasic sleep style. I like to get up a be active after my initial sleep and then return to sleep for a bit before my day, then nap at my scheduled times and intervals. I have not had much success with applying this app practically and functionally for my lifestyle. I would appreciate a more adaptive approach and I how you can sleep. Please consider some adjustments to help make your app for inclusive and helpful. Thanks for the effort and the good you have and are doing for the people overall. Unfortunately this one isn’t for me, but I am trying. If I change my mind or habits I will update this appropriately. Take care
Changed my nights for the better
by StopSineMan on 2018/03/12 17:55
I love this app. I’ll admit I sometimes cheat in the mornings. I hit “wake up,” secure my building, then hop back into bed. But it’s impossible to cheat at night. I used to have problems falling asleep because I’d spend an hour or two on my phone lost in some bunny trail. Now my phone is off-limits after 10 because I honestly don’t want to be on my phone that late and loosing my building is enough of a reason to stay off. And you can customize! I just found out about this and this is awesome! The app is also huge. It would take a year to get every building and every achievement so even though I’ve been using it for two months it hasn’t gotten old yet. One recommendation: This might be a stretch but basically can you guys make this into Sim City? Like if you don’t hit the wake up button on time you hear a meteor crash into your building with appropriate screaming? Or if you just built a fair-ground you hear encouraging cheering? It’d be fun :D
Helps me go to bed on time.
by The Foy on 2019/04/03 03:43
It took a couple days for me to figure out how it all really worked, but I love this app. It’s fun to see the buildings go up and once I have a streak going I don’t want to break it. More nights hitting scheduled sleep/wake times increases your streak which makes your town earn more revenue overnight! I do wish there was more than one “get ready for bed alarm” (as in, I could set reminders for 60, 30, 20, AND 10 minutes before my scheduled time, so I can wrap up what I’m doing and go to bed without rushing). I also wish the ambient sound had a timer - it only plays for a few minutes and that’s never quite enough for me to drift off.
Love this app! A few suggestions:
by janesunzhang on 2019/04/02 12:32
I really like the concept and the graphics! It makes going to bed and waking on time easier and more entertaining. It could be better if there was more flexibility for sleeping and waking. Resetting times should not have to reset streaks. People may need to change schedules for various reasons, and it’s inconvenient for them to start over with their building streaks. Also, it would be an improvement to have multiple alarms for those who are deep sleepers. Finally, it would be nice to have a certain buffer time for sleep and wake times so that if I am off by a minute or two, the building won’t completely fail.
I’m finally having good days!
by yeyessis on 2021/01/14 15:58
I noticed that my entire day can be ruined just simply by not sleeping well. I figured that the app costs as much as a soda, so what can it hurt right? This app has already changed my life! I’m in a Doctorate program which means I’m responsible for a lot. It also means that I viewed my time at night as my only free time (8pm to sometimes 1 or 2am) and I’d be back up by 6:30 - my sleep schedule, however, was not very responsible. My phone was the culprit. Once I got this app, I got the best sleep of my life. This app IS self-care!!🤗
Not a good app for students!
by Audrey Z. on 2018/02/17 15:00
I am a student and I was super excited for this app. But the problem is, I go to school 5 days a week, and have Saturday and Sunday off. I set those days as my “days” off, but when I slept in on Saturday morning, I woke up to a destroyed building. I get up very early for school, and it’s be insane if I got up that early on the weekends just to form a “healthy sleep habit”. Also, there are days of school that we have off for holidays, in service days, snow days, etc. Since most of those days are weekdays, I’m not sure what to do when I want to get up later because we don’t have school. I don’t want my building to be destroyed, but I don’t want to be up at 5:30 in the morning on my day off. I hope you read this review and take it into consideration.
Great but...
by Grace is graceful wows on 2018/03/28 01:00
I really like it and it helps me just I do not like how you can’t turn off your phone. My charger isn’t the best and some people don’t have outlets near their bed. My charger sometimes will just stop charging and die because it was on all night. Then I lose my progress. So please make it so that you can turn your phone off. One other thing, when I have the alarm on it doesn’t seem to go off. So please fix that. One last thing, I do not like how you have to have an account for it can’t we just use the app. Every feature says please sign in and what if I don’t want to make an account for everything.
:)
by Rainyday0195 on 2018/05/08 04:03
I like this app! It makes me want to go to bed and wake up "on time" so I don't destroy my building. It would be nice if we could rotate the direction of the buildings in our towns, and have even just a little more freedom in placement inside the square footage of land (so we don't have a lamppost that sits right in the middle of its square--it would be nice if we could place it closer to the edge of the square, like if we wanted to have lamps line the side of the road, for example). Just some thoughts. ;) I like this app, it's a great idea to make going to bed and waking up early fun.
😕
by kokonut Tree on 2019/05/20 02:07
Compared to forest , this app seems a lot more complicated and I’ve been using it for a week but I still am baffled about how it works. It’s not so encouraging as well cos you don’t get to buy buildings like you can for forest so it’s kinda not motivating to look forward to. I don’t know what the coins are for too if you can’t buy buildings and only expect unexpected ones to pop up. It’s very expensive to demolish a building too unlike forest . I’m not a big fan of this app , but since I love its brother Forest, I keep using it and am giving a chance anyway. Maybe after using it for a month , my view may change but who knows, of course .🤫
I love this app
by theesavvy1 on 2021/01/31 20:17
I use this app almost every day and it has been instrumental in helping me get more sleep. My biggest problem is usually telling myself “okay 5 more minutes” and then scrolling through different apps on my phone for the next 2 hours. But since this app gives you a tangible reward for not doing that, I’m finding that it’s so much easier to fall asleep. 5/5 stars, highly recommend for people like me who need motivation to stay off their phones.
So helpful
by WhiteCoatMermaid on 2019/04/01 11:03
I’m a medical student and staying on a specific sleep schedule was difficult for me but with SleepTown I’ve been able to stay on track the whole semester so far. Love waking up to the new buildings every day and the only thing I wish was different were the ability to change the orientation of the buildings similar to how we can change the orientation of most of the decorations. Overall this is a great app in my opinion and was well worth the few dollar cost that I spent on it!
Amazing
by forestytrees on 2020/12/01 19:49
This is an amazing app. I have had much better habits after using it. I had some days when I just got very tired and needed to sleep around 8 or 9 pm, which is more than 2 hours before my set goal for going to bed. Then the app would tell me that I can only start to build 2 hours before. Sometimes the body’s need is not that strict- I had hoped for some flexibility in terms of how early I could start building- to go sleep earlier is no harm- but went over board surely hurts.
This app could be 100x better l
by blackfaerie773 on 2017/12/05 07:08
I can't even use it because of the hard and fast bed time. Every other sleep app lets you change your bedtime goal day-to-day if you want. My goal is not to be in bed at PRECISELY 10 pm every single night, it's to get in bed by the bedtime I choose for that day, and go for 8 hours with playing with my phone. I purchased this app because I loved Forest and was super excited to use another one of your apps, and the app is great in every other way. But it's unusable until there is the choice of some flexibility. As soon as that happens I will be happy to update this review, start using the app, and hopefully give a tip if it works well. Pleeeeeeeeease institute this
Adorable and Functional
by 3rdMistborn on 2020/04/10 10:07
I enjoy waking up to a new little building that comes with my town! It’s been a fun new habit to integrate into my sleeping/waking routines. I adore sending little screenshots to friends and getting excited over buildings I got. Great app for its cuteness (similar to its sister app, Forest!) and smooth functionality. I’m hoping I can have more little Japan-themed buildings as they are quite close to what I saw when traveling in Japan. So lovely! Thank you for making such a handy and cute app! 💕🌸
Thanks for the help!
by Namajamaspade on 2019/04/29 22:58
As a huge fan of Forest, I had to check this out. I’m constantly wanting time away from my phone, but nighttime is rough, always thinking of one more thing to Google, or one more check of the ‘gram. This app is so motivating in the morning, just the little act of seeing my building and town grow more and more makes me want to keep using it and keep being productive and not self-sabotage with that snooze button. Thanks for this one!
“Gamifying” healthy habits
by jthingelstad on 2017/12/12 02:39
I found the UI confusing at first. Wake time and alarm clock time was confusing. How to actually use a Ticket 🎟 was confusing too. I destroyed my first 3 houses on accident as a result. After I figured it out I realized I was using it wrong at first. Am now really enjoying SleepTown. It’s a good way to reinforce healthy habits. It sure is a slow build though to get coins but as other reviewers have said better to do that than letting people buy quick progress. Wouldn’t mind seeing something like Forests elixirs though.
So far so good
by Lord Ogilby  on 2019/01/18 20:55
I’ve only used this for two sleep cycles so far. So far so good! It’s really motivated me to get to sleep and wake up on time because I love building the town. The graphics are really detailed and it’s great eye candy. If the graphics were boring then this app wouldn’t work. I do not agree with the reviewer who said it was “too strict.” There is a 2-hour buffer allowed before bedtime and another before wake-up time. That’s plenty of room. The app has to be a little strict, otherwise it wouldn’t work. So he is wrong. I’m not sure what the long term will be, but I love apps that work right away. You don’t even need an account to try it out. You can set one up later to sync. Thank you for making a visually-appealing app in a crowed marketplace of ugly, flat, fluorescent, pastel, gross-looking, unintuitive apps.
Amazing!!!!
by V2EX Livid on 2018/09/26 14:18
I love how you designed the game and all the houses in the town and it’s very creative and this game has completely been an absolute blast. I got this game a few days ago and I have always enjoyed playing this and I discovered all different types of houses and I think that is very creative of people. I’m thinking that MAYBE you could do a day one which means you can’t use your phone in the day and you will get house furniture and create a mansion.
this is SO GOOD
by themegannoel on 2020/05/03 16:46
as a college student, my sleep schedule is WRECKED. I knew something had to change. I haven’t had this consistent of a sleep schedule since I was in middle school. I’m consistently tired when I should go to bed (and I had been taking melatonin before and now I’m on my fourth night in a row of not having to do that. it’s magic) and then I’m used to waking up when it has me waking up. seriously. it’s the best few bucks I’ve ever spent.
On a True Sleep Schedule
by Rory Chaze on 2019/04/12 04:18
Sleepy Town actually makes me want to go to sleep at a decent hour to wake up at a decent hour instead of messing with my sleep schedule every day! Whenever it’s on, and I’m having a bit of insomnia, i don’t think about picking up my phone anymore because I don’t want to destroy the building I’m working on! It gets me to take action against my phone usage at night for sure! Would highly recommend!
Awesome
by Littlejayjay on 2018/09/24 15:58
SleepTown has definitely helped me stay on track with a sleep schedule. I decided I needed to wake up earlier and I would always use my phone late into the night, but that all changed with this app. The gamification really works and I enjoy seeing all the different buildings I’ve made. I do think that adding a 5 minute buffer time would be nice, but either way, i’ve always gone to bed on time. Thank you!
good could be better
by lavenderchai on 2020/10/13 11:11
This app is good, I love all the buildings and the approach it takes to motivate you to sleep. However there could be improvements. First of all I think it would be nice to have an option to choose whether you are strict about bedtime but not wake up time or vice versa. For busy people like me I use this app mainly to motivate me to go to sleep on time. Most of the time I wake up at the same time but obviously I still oversleep sometimes — but this is a good thing for me because of how sleep deprived I am, and I wouldn’t like to be penalized for that.
Could use some work...
by PopeCanopycom on 2017/09/29 10:50
The alarm has seemed to not be going off for me recently, and all of my buildings this week are gone. The app also seems to be lacking in flexibility in the times. Maybe you can only "go to sleep" 1 hour before the designated time, but when you wake up, there is like 5 minutes of flexibility. But at night there isn't any. You HAVE to be off your phone by that time. I once was watching a movie with my friends and was 5 late of my goal.
Defeats the purpose.
by CMHnotOutofBED on 2020/04/01 01:26
Purchased this app because the UI looked nice and wanted an app that would get me out of bed by a certain time very morning. From the concept, this seemed like it would work. First night, alarm never went off in the morning. Even when I hit wake up after the require time, I still was awarded the building instead of being punished. Maybe I misunderstood the app, but three days later of the same thing, something just don’t seem right. Apparently if you want this app to hold you accountable, it won’t. UI was still nice though so here’s your two stars.
Super excited to use it, but
by Silverlights88 on 2019/01/04 16:02
Just downloaded this app. Will rate again a month in. I’m a HUGGGGE fan of Forest. It’s my favorite app. This app from the start is a bit more glitchy and slow. Plus, I wanted to be able to put my phone to bed at 7pm (I will be going to bed at 11), and wake up the phone at 10am (I will be getting up at 7am), But it wouldn’t let me set it for that long of a time period. I want to be distraction free in the mornings and nights. Being able I set it for any amount of time would be super helpful. I can’t be the only one wanting this.
I’m actually going to bed on time
by knitfriendly on 2019/07/01 09:06
This is a fun way to stay on track with going to bed on time. I used to say to myself, “I’ll just check one thing on my phone and then go to sleep.” That one thing would turn into an hour of phone time, causing me to get an hour less sleep. Since using this app, I now go to bed on time and read on my kindle until I get sleepy. I love this app!
Too rigid but I have a suggestion
by Shqkfhxnaelgixjanefx on 2019/06/11 14:09
I have a bad habit of going to bed too late, and of using my phone before bed. This app tries to alleviate that issue and I think that’s great. Forest is also an amazing app. That said, I wish I could adjust my bedtime without completely resetting my streak progress: My ideal bedtime would be 10:45. Before using the app, my bedtime was closer to 2:00 AM. I set 1:30 AM as a bedtime to have something to shoot for. So if I go to bed between 11:30 and 1:30 I can hit the “sleep” button and be good. I slowly worked back to a better bedtime. Now that I’m in the rhythm, there are nights where I want to go to bed at 11:00 PM but I have to wait extra time to hit the “sleep” button. Counter-productive. MY SUGGESTION: Allow bedtime and/or wake up time to be adjusted by 10 minutes every day without penalty, so that people like me can slowly reach a good habit.
Noice
by Wennahfied on 2019/05/28 20:15
This app is actually encouraging me to fix my sleep schedule in a cute lil sims-like town-building way, I get exited to wake up & see the new building I've earned every day. Only issue is i don't entirely understand the weekend snooze option, as I regularly sleep in on weekends, but it still builds and destroys a new house, which is then on my lil digital (unedit-able) property block. That issue might just me on me reading something wrong though tbh. In conclusion, this is a cute app and I am HERE for it.
Doing its Job
by KatushaN on 2019/09/06 11:57
Aside from getting a good nights sleep, I’m using this app to make me get off my phone before I go to bed. The fact that the idea of a digital house is taking me off my phone is incredible. I’ve got two of this companies apps now and both have been super helpful. Can’t wait to see what they come up with next. I wish the alarm was louder cause I’ve slept through it a few times and lost a streak but other than that it’s great.
I can finally sleep
by Victoryscreech on 2019/08/15 01:48
This app is amazing and has really helped regulate my sleep schedule. One thing that i would want to see is a change in how circles are run. My friend has to wake up at 4:45am for her job but i wake up at 8am. I really dont want to wake up at 4am but i also really want to have a circle with her. Please change it so that we can both work towards our different goals!
Like it but can we have different goals in the same circle

I love this app. But when I invite my husband to monitor each other’s sleeping time, we have to set the same goal. This is not very practical and it is restrictive to family members for encouraging each other to form a healthy sleeping habit. Everyone has different sleeping time. A circle should not force the same goal.
Kinda Nice :')

This app will not force you to build a healthy routine. Only you can control whether or not your sleep matters to you. However, this is a nice app to track progress and have a little bit of fun, external purpose. I like building little towns and generating revenue. I don't yet play with friends, but I hope to get some on board because I like goal setting with accountability from others. Ultimately, it must be on you to decide to listen to the little notification that tells you to go to bed in 15 minutes. Get back on it if you break a streak. Try not to lose your cool. And honestly? Get some sleep. :) This app is a good one, and I thank those who put in the work to make it as good as it is.

I’m excited about this idea, I need the accountability to get me to maintain a good sleep schedule

Zhang, Zhenyuan is my favorite singer and dancer. He recommended it to me. After using this app for a month, I come back for this review. Please believe me, it is a app you are looking for.
I am improving my sleep habits!

I love SleepTown! I’m improving my sleeping habits and making sleep a priority.
Enjoying this app
by RoseAppleDew on 2021/02/21 21:26
Downloaded a few days ago and love it so far! My goal to build a town outweighs my want to stay up. I find it helpful to have a semi-set sleep schedule.
Helps set bedtime for my ADHD
by Bradley Beschta on 2021/02/17 16:54
Helps set bedtime for me specifically I was always a night owl and my gf was not happy i would stay up all night and sleep all day in return. This app helps motivate me to get a routine sleep schedule back!
이게 되네,,?
by jimin4ever on 2021/02/17 15:50
이거 한다고 잠을 규칙적으로 자겠냐고 생각 해 앱을 알고 난 한참 후에도 사지 않았었는데 요즘 슬립사이클이 너무 무너져서 그냥 한 번 시도 해보려고 샀다. 근데 정말 이게 뭐라고 잠 잘 자서 좋은 건물 지으면 기분이 좋고 제대로 못 자서 건물 하나 부수면 절망스럽다 언제까지 갈지는 모르겠지만 일단 지금까지 일주일 정도 쓴 결과 정말 도움이 된다ㅋ

I’ve seen many different kinds of sleeping apps, this is definitely the most interesting one, not only the features are cute and easy to use, the whole idea of collecting the house is just cute
I love this app
by theesavvy1 on 2021/01/31 20:17
I use this app almost every day and it has been instrumental in helping me get more sleep. My biggest problem is usually telling myself “okay 5 more minutes” and then scrolling through different apps on my phone for the next 2 hours. But since this app gives you a tangible reward for not doing that, I’m finding that it’s so much easier to fall asleep. 5/5 stars, highly recommend for people like me who need motivation to stay off their phones.
No Apple Watch version

I’ve used Forest for forever and always thought the app concept would translate well to regulating sleep. Thank you for this!
Great App! Widget?
by Kidswagkillabeng on 2021/01/23 16:54
Love this app! Just wanted to ask the developer though- are there plans to have a widget similar to your app Forest? I’d love to see my town on my screen beside my Forest. Thank you!
Must... Gamify... Every aspect of life
by JenelleGloria on 2021/01/21 04:25
Yes, I don’t care enough about my health to maintain motivation to keep a consistent sleep schedule. “It is good for me” is somehow not enough of a reason to move an abstract intention into action. But for some reason my brain has no problem mustering up a feeling of urgency to create my prosperous virtual town. So, I must hack my brain, so that the lame things it cares about (virtual towns) can actully contribute to my well being. Enter, sleeptown. A nice complement to forest. I only just downloaded it yesterday but I did sleep last night and stayed off my phone, and now I gotta keep the streak going. I’m entering the review to get a free new building. But everything I am saying here is true and certified accurate. Happy sleeping
Awesome app!

by yeyessis on 2021/01/14 15:58
I noticed that my entire day can be ruined just simply by not sleeping well. I figured that the app costs as much as a soda, so what can it hurt right? This app has already changed my life! I’m in a Doctorate program which means I’m responsible for a lot. It also means that I viewed my time at night as my only free time (8pm to sometimes 1 or 2am) and I’d be back up by 6:30 - my sleep schedule, however, was not very responsible. My phone was the culprit. Once I got this app, I got the best sleep of my life. This app IS self-care!!🤗

Amazing
by forestytrees on 2020/12/01 19:49
This is an amazing app. I have had much better habits after using it. I had some days when I just got very tired and needed to sleep around 8 or 9 pm, which is more than 2 hours before my set goal for going to bed. Then the app would tell me that I can only start to build 2 hours before. Sometimes the body’s need is not that strict- I had hoped for some flexibility in terms of how early I could start building- to go sleep earlier is no harm- but went over board surely hurts.
Amazing!

I finally made it all the way to my sleep goal and got to hear the lovely alarm music! This app is darling, I really enjoy using it, and it’s helped me stay disciplined—when my phone is in sleep mode, that’s it, I do not check it again.
Actually went to sleep on time.

Great app could use improvements though.
by Maddy Renee on 2020/10/20 19:29
I love the app! It helps to keep me on my sleep schedule without a problem. But the one thing that irks me is that fact that when you forget to say you got up there is no way to change it. So you just get a destroyed building even though you got up on time. Other than that I love it.
Nice
by Bugcat47 on 2020/10/19 09:05
Has helped me with maintaining a healthy sleeping schedule. Would be nice if buildings had name and there was more to the big town function.

by lavenderchai on 2020/10/13 11:11
This app is good, I love all the buildings and the approach it takes to motivate you to sleep. However there could be improvements. First of all I think it would be nice to have an option to choose whether you are strict about bedtime but not wake up time or vice versa. For busy people like me I use this app mainly to motivate me to go to sleep on time. Most of the time I wake up at the same time but obviously I still oversleep sometimes — but this is a good thing for me because of how sleep deprived I am, and I wouldn’t like to be penalized for that.
Interesting

Not complicated. Not stimulating. But very motivating.
Good for going to bed on time!
by Hollagim on 2020/10/06 15:56
Just started using the app, it is good on one end and that is incentivizing you to be in bed at the proper time which is half the equation. I hope the developers add a widget like they did for Forest. All in all pretty good.
great app
by WhyAreAllTheNicknamesChosen? on 2020/10/04 02:23
sometimes the alarm doesn't go off and my building ends up destroyed but otherwise it's overall a very good app and i live the circle feature.
SleepTown is a fun way to encourage good sleep hygiene!

Besides feel great in the morning from getting enough sleep, how else are you going to get rewarded for doing this adulting task right?
So helpful!
by ChloozyB on 2020/09/29 04:30
This app was well worth the price, it helped me create a healthy balance of sleep in no time. It’s not strict if you don’t want it to be, and doesn’t punish you harshly for skipping a day or something like that. It’s super cute and has all different sorts of features on it. I recommend if you would like an accountability app for sleep :)
It is soooo motivating.

So far I love it. It’s been a great way to keep me from going on my phone at bedtime and a great tool to use to get up in the morning on time. My only problem is the alarm hasn’t been going off in the morning so maybe I need to check on the settings other then that it’s great.
Makes going to bed on time fun!
by jennalynnowens on 2020/09/01 11:55
Forces me not to use my phone while in bed, and when you wake up on time, you are greeted with a new construction for your little town. It’s great!
Downloading time
by jacobdnolan on 2020/08/31 03:11
I never write reviews but this was too frustrating. When loading my town it would sometimes load for 3-5 minutes on WiFi or cellular data. I don’t know what’s going on with it but it’s pretty frustrating so I just don’t use it anymore.
Love it

Pretty simple to use, and it really encourages me to go to bed on time because I don’t want to miss out on a new building!
This app works for me!
by 20130331 on 2020/08/14 04:27
Using SleepTown helps me from opening my phone when I have trouble sleeping and I definitely see a difference in my sleep habits. It’s also a fun little game which also motivates me to use the app to help me sleep. There have been no problems!
Probably my favorite app?
by Cptfunk on 2019/04/02 18:01
I genuinely don’t even know if I had this regular of a sleep schedule when I was a kid. I have ADHD and would regularly spend until four in the morning researching whatever that week’s new interest was on my phone instead of sleeping. The novelty of getting new buildings, the frustration of a house collapsing, and the desire to keep consistent so I have the funds to configure new areas of my town are all strong enough to keep me from blowing it off, which is a pretty huge feat. Also, when I did hit a patch of not using it for awhile, I discovered the Circles function, and having friends build projects with me gave me the added element of public accountability. The only fundamental way this app could be better would be if you were somehow able to download it onto other devices and your desktop so that you can’t hop from your phone to somewhere else, but also, like, an app can’t actually be a full adult for you, so 🤷🏼‍♀️. (That said, developers, if you could give the option to edit the sleep goals for Circles groups every couple of weeks in case of slight schedule changes in the group, I would love you forever.) Anyway, it’s an incredible app, and my mental and physical health are measurably better for it.
Surprisingly addictive (the good kind)
by xHALFRICANx on 2019/04/14 01:36
Alright so it’s not a game, nor will it require time away from anything. I was first brought onto SleepTown by way of Forest which has changed the way I use my iPhone for the better! SleepTown has not only surpassed my expectations but believe or not I am going to bed on time and not spending time on my iPhone (how simple that may sound I know there are millions of us who can’t due to the phone addiction) then waking up to a surprisingly building that provides me with a weird satisfaction that I slept and obtained a building for my town. Look, this is probably not for anyone who could give a rip about spending countless hours on their phones while in bed or could care less about sleep (if this is you... life catches up), but if you are in the class of “I care about the quality of sleep and want to break away from giving my attention to a device that is a time sucking, data hog, irrelevant piece of metal and plastic”... then I would suggest SleepTown.
A bit too strict
by Mains bodkin on 2018/12/05 11:03
It’s a nice app but it’s so strict, if you miss by a couple minutes, even if you still get to bed in roughly the same time, the building will be destroyed. Another thing I don’t like is that once you missed my sleeping time that’s it, you failed the night and there’s nothing else you can do. But really, even if I missed my sleeping time by hours, it still helps to just click “build” and put down the phone when I do decide to sleep. I want to use this app for helping me get away from my phone, and i still want to use this feature even if I did miss my sleeping time. But right now “missing you sleeping time” is just the end of the story. I don’t even want to open this app after not being able to build a single house for three days. There’re tracking apps more forgiving rewarding and helpful than this one. ————————— What I think might help is to add a period in which you want to go to bed, then a deadline by which you have to get off your phone. Say you want to sleep at 10pm, it may help to give you a period between 9:30 to 10:30 in which you can hit sleep and start building the house, but still allow you to have some flexibility, say I can still reply to a text at 10:05. But then by 10:30 is the hard deadline after which the house will be destroyed if you look at your phone again.
I want to like this app
by allspice75 on 2019/10/06 06:09
So there are definitely things about this app that I like! It’s very cute and a fun way to incentivize not being on your phone before bed. I have the sister app, Forest, for concentration and staying off my phone during the day and that one is perfect in my mind! But this one still needs some changes to be perfect in my mind. I’ve seen a few other reviews suggest having a sleep time window and a wake up window so you don’t automatically fail if you’re off by 15 or 30 minutes, which I agree would be really nice. The strictness of destroying your building if you leave after you decide to go to sleep is effective and I think that should stay, but there definitely needs to be a 30 minute cushion between sleep time and wake up time. My only other complaint is the days off feature. I’ve selected Saturday and Sunday as my days off since that’s when I get to stay up later and sleep in later, but I still get notifications on those days to go to bed in 30 minutes and missing those days still breaks my streak. I hope that some improvements can be made cause I really want to like this app!! It’s just hard to build a sleep habit when it won’t give you weekends or any leeway.
Wish there was more flexibility
by Stephiiiiiii on 2018/05/31 03:48
I’m really bad at staying on my phone when I’m in bed so an app like this is really helpful in helping build a habit. However, there are a few things that really make it hard for me to like this app. I really enjoy the “game” aspect of it and how it’s a challenge because it really incentivizes me, but it’s just not realistic to check-in when I go to bed every single time. For example, tonight I missed going to bed by 1 minute and that automatically constitutes as a failure. The problem with this is that now I don’t have an incentive to not be on my phone. I could just move my sleep time to 11pm, but that defeats the purpose of it. While ideally my sleep time is 10:30pm, it’s just not realistic for me to go to bed at exactly that time and sometimes it’s just a matter of forgetting to check in (even with the notification). I would like there to be an option for a “smaller” incentive if you miss your bedtime goal but still don’t want to use your phone at night. i.e. maybe it should count towards half a building or something similar. Unfortunately, this app just isn’t working completely for me at this time but I will keep on using it with the hope it will help.
Must... Gamify... Every aspect of life
by JenelleGloria on 2021/01/21 04:25
Yes, I don’t care enough about my health to maintain motivation to keep a consistent sleep schedule. “It is good for me” is somehow not enough of a reason to move an abstract intention into action. But for some reason my brain has no problem mustering up a feeling of urgency to create my prosperous virtual town. So, I must hack my brain, so that the lame things it cares about (virtual towns) can actully contribute to my well being. Enter, sleeptown. A nice complement to forest. I only just downloaded it yesterday but I did sleep last night and stayed off my phone, and now I gotta keep the streak going. I’m entering the review to get a free new building. But everything I am saying here is true and certified accurate. Happy sleeping
Great motivator
by Randomuser53728162 on 2019/05/14 13:46
I enjoy this app almost as much as I enjoy the Forest app. Really amazing how much not wanting to see a building destroyed can motivate me to go to bed and wake up on time. The only real downside is that I’ve built pretty much all of the buildings, and I don’t really have that novelty factor anymore to look forward to…another minor thing: if any new designs for buildings are currently in development, I would request some buildings to have entrances that face southeast. Pretty much all the buildings right now have entrances that faces southwest, which make the towns that I design a bit limited in their orientation. Perhaps you could allow us to turn the buildings, like we can turn the other items (benches, tables, etc.) And finally, like the Forest app, it would be great to be able to have a daily, weekly, monthly, and annual view so that I can have a better sense of my progress; right now only the weekly view is available. Thank you for an amazing app and all your work!
Not lively enough
by PopMyBubble on 2019/07/09 05:00
It needs more motivation and determination, as well as consequences. Yes you will not end up with a built building; however, it is not like the app “forest” created by the same developers. “Forest” allows for productivity and its major use due to the consequence from disturbing the growing plant. If you do not complete the process, the plant will die and destroy the forest’s beauty. This dead plant is turned to ash and costs a lot of coins to get rid of. This gives a strong motivator in not breaking the process of the plant growth. What would make this sleep app affective is if it was more lively. For example, towns people going in the buildings. Transportation driving around. Building roads. Build a park for the townspeople to roam and play in. Build a beach or desert. There are multiple things that could be added to make this app a lot more fun and entertaining. It doesn't have to be something that requires a lot of time, but also have a bit more involvement. These are just some suggestions to help make this app grow.
Just doesn’t work
by LHB0911 on 2018/01/27 13:32
I’ve been trying to use this app for a week. First, the alarm never went off for the first five days. I emailed the developer but got no response. Then it finally did go off - on the day that was supposed to be “off”. So on Saturday I was woken up at 5:45am, finally figured how to turn it off (after waking everyone else up) and went back to sleep. When I did get up, it told me the building had failed. I’ll live with the disappointment, but in terms of tracking habits through visuals, the app clearly doesn’t work. Since it requires me to be on my phone just before bedtime and right as I get up, creates any level of frustration in between (including nearly making me late for work), and doesn’t actually track any sleep habits whatsoever or with any degree of accuracy, I’m not sure this was worth spending the extra money on. It’s too bad, because I really like Forest, which has helped me be more productive at work. But this app seems like it could use some serious re-conceptualizing before it could actually be useful.
Good app but...
by AriaRose7 on 2019/06/20 16:41
Forcing the user to go back into the app to keep progress is an amazing feature, but here is where SleepTown looses a star for me, the two hour waking up period before the alarm goes off and 15 minutes after wake up is to much, for me at least. I wish that there would be more customization with the time allowed before and after the set sleeping period. This app is totally worth the money though. I would love to see continuous updates, I also think they should add a feature where you can set a sleep goal and it adjust your schedule according to your starting sleep time and slowly adjust to reach your goal over a series of nights or whatever set time the user wants. Which goes back to my key complaint, customization. All in all I love this app, and I can’t wait to see how it gets better.
Getting used to.
by SolidTwinkie on 2018/04/01 15:34
Getting used to the app. Really helps me stay off my phone until my alarm goes off which was a big problem of mine before. As soon as I opened my eyes I would want to check social media or mail even if I was planning on going back to sleep. Now I know my building would be destroyed and I didn’t not just put 6 hrs of hard work for that to happen. I would have given this 5 starts but i think the phone is very sensitive, this morning I woke up to a destroyed building but I don’t recall using my phone at all. I’ll have to keep using the app and maybe place the phone a bit farther away so I don’t accidentally move it (I’m thinking that was the case here). Anyways I’m going to go back to sleep for 7 hrs to build another building since the one from last night got destroyed.
Once upon a time there was a girl who had trouble sleeping
by RocherGuo on 2019/06/12 05:35
When I was a senior in college, there was a period of time that I was lost in life. Didn’t know where I’m going after graduation, didn’t know what’s coming for me later in life. I had trouble sleeping, every day and every night. At around three in the morning where my panic peaks, I would pick up my phone and go online shopping (it is that bad, trust me) till about five when I started to see light shine through my window...... Sleep town helped me get my life back. Two years later right now, I have moved to a new city, started a new life, and am proud of the tiny town of 225 buildings in my pocket 😊
Frustrating/fussy and negative
by Composer123 on 2017/12/27 13:08
On one hand I love the building aspect of this app-I've been using it about a month. On the other there are some fundamental design flaws that run for to good sleep hygiene; some of which would happen in any sleep promoting app and others which they could improve. It's never pleasant to wake up to "you have failed" if you oversleep. The alarm does not adjust with any change you make to your target wake up time. The alarm itself is wonky, and doesn't always go off. The controls are fussy and there are far too many rules to do the simple task the app is supposed to do. You have to remember to push "sleep" every night before you go to sleep. I don't see a way around this but it's one more thing to think of when you're in bed. Finally, some creative mind will have to come up with an app that doesn't compel you to be on your phone. Screens are a big part of the reason many of us have bad sleep habits! Plus, it would be nice not to have to be on your phone when you wake up, too. As it stands you have to unlock your phone, go into the app, and activate it (and then collect your coins, so you're immediately playing a game right when you wake up). In short, too much fuss for a simple goal without a lot of incentive.
Tone of the copy can be improved
by Paola Bueso on 2018/10/16 01:46
I wish the app was much more encouraging. It seems the tone of the copy is out of place at times. It is discouraging to see the message that you failed. I had a long day, tried my best to be on time, was a few minutes late and now I have to see that discouraging message. Perhaps if it said something like, "you didn’t make it on time today, try again tomorrow", I would feel more encouraged to continue using the app to improve my sleeping habits. Please improve the tone of the copy, it would make a world of a difference in terms of user experience.
Missing bedtime
by sleepypanda23645 on 2020/01/14 07:15
I overall like this app, but my main issue is that once you miss the sleeping time you totally lose out on using any of the apps features. I use this app to keep me off my phone at night and it would be nice to be able to turn on the sleep mode even if you missed your set bedtime. I wake up multiple times during the night and having the app dissuades me from using my phone when I wake up, but if I miss the bedtime I end up not being able to take adventure of that feature. My suggestion would be to allow users to still use sleep mode even if the bed time has been missed. Maybe they don’t earn points from it, but we can still take advantage of the apps features ( which is the most important part of me
Clever app, definitely works
by Bbfitz99999 on 2018/06/19 10:40
I downloaded this app because I’d been having trouble falling asleep at a reasonable time, and it totally works! I’m actually excited to go to sleep on time now, and every morning I wake up eager to see what new building I got. I do wish the app were a little more explicit with instructions, since I didn’t even know I could build my own city until the fifth day of using it 🙈 I hope the app will be updated with new types of buildings!!!! The more variety the better in my opinion. Seriously though, this app is an excellent way to build healthy sleeping habits, and well worth the money
More fun & effective than it seems
by Kanda629 on 2019/05/28 11:13
I thought I’d download this and immediately stop caring about my little town (aka sleep goals) as I usually do with these types of “games,” but the first time I destroyed a building by oversleeping I had a real sad! The only thing I’d like to see changed is to be able to adjust the sleep goals without resetting progress because I’d like to slowly move my sleep time earlier in the night, but the game is fine because I CAN still beat the sleep deadline and keep progress. It’s just harder when nobody is telling me to, lol! Great game, and I’m glad I learned about it through forest!
Too time restrictive
by D2Leeson on 2020/04/27 09:14
I understand the goal is to help the average person establish the common habit of consistent sleep, but I work a varied schedule and apply a polyphasic sleep style. I like to get up a be active after my initial sleep and then return to sleep for a bit before my day, then nap at my scheduled times and intervals. I have not had much success with applying this app practically and functionally for my lifestyle. I would appreciate a more adaptive approach and I how you can sleep. Please consider some adjustments to help make your app for inclusive and helpful. Thanks for the effort and the good you have and are doing for the people overall. Unfortunately this one isn’t for me, but I am trying. If I change my mind or habits I will update this appropriately. Take care
Changed my nights for the better
by StopSineMan on 2018/03/12 17:55
I love this app. I’ll admit I sometimes cheat in the mornings. I hit “wake up,” secure my building, then hop back into bed. But it’s impossible to cheat at night. I used to have problems falling asleep because I’d spend an hour or two on my phone lost in some bunny trail. Now my phone is off-limits after 10 because I honestly don’t want to be on my phone that late and loosing my building is enough of a reason to stay off. And you can customize! I just found out about this and this is awesome! The app is also huge. It would take a year to get every building and every achievement so even though I’ve been using it for two months it hasn’t gotten old yet. One recommendation: This might be a stretch but basically can you guys make this into Sim City? Like if you don’t hit the wake up button on time you hear a meteor crash into your building with appropriate screaming? Or if you just built a fair-ground you hear encouraging cheering? It’d be fun :D
Helps me go to bed on time.
by The Foy on 2019/04/03 03:43
It took a couple days for me to figure out how it all really worked, but I love this app. It’s fun to see the buildings go up and once I have a streak going I don’t want to break it. More nights hitting scheduled sleep/wake times increases your streak which makes your town earn more revenue overnight! I do wish there was more than one “get ready for bed alarm” (as in, I could set reminders for 60, 30, 20, AND 10 minutes before my scheduled time, so I can wrap up what I’m doing and go to bed without rushing). I also wish the ambient sound had a timer - it only plays for a few minutes and that’s never quite enough for me to drift off.
Love this app! A few suggestions:
by janesunzhang on 2019/04/02 12:32
I really like the concept and the graphics! It makes going to bed and waking on time easier and more entertaining. It could be better if there was more flexibility for sleeping and waking. Resetting times should not have to reset streaks. People may need to change schedules for various reasons, and it’s inconvenient for them to start over with their building streaks. Also, it would be an improvement to have multiple alarms for those who are deep sleepers. Finally, it would be nice to have a certain buffer time for sleep and wake times so that if I am off by a minute or two, the building won’t completely fail.
I’m finally having good days!
by yeyessis on 2021/01/14 15:58
I noticed that my entire day can be ruined just simply by not sleeping well. I figured that the app costs as much as a soda, so what can it hurt right? This app has already changed my life! I’m in a Doctorate program which means I’m responsible for a lot. It also means that I viewed my time at night as my only free time (8pm to sometimes 1 or 2am) and I’d be back up by 6:30 - my sleep schedule, however, was not very responsible. My phone was the culprit. Once I got this app, I got the best sleep of my life. This app IS self-care!!🤗
Not a good app for students!
by Audrey Z. on 2018/02/17 15:00
I am a student and I was super excited for this app. But the problem is, I go to school 5 days a week, and have Saturday and Sunday off. I set those days as my “days” off, but when I slept in on Saturday morning, I woke up to a destroyed building. I get up very early for school, and it’s be insane if I got up that early on the weekends just to form a “healthy sleep habit”. Also, there are days of school that we have off for holidays, in service days, snow days, etc. Since most of those days are weekdays, I’m not sure what to do when I want to get up later because we don’t have school. I don’t want my building to be destroyed, but I don’t want to be up at 5:30 in the morning on my day off. I hope you read this review and take it into consideration.
Great but...
by Grace is graceful wows on 2018/03/28 01:00
I really like it and it helps me just I do not like how you can’t turn off your phone. My charger isn’t the best and some people don’t have outlets near their bed. My charger sometimes will just stop charging and die because it was on all night. Then I lose my progress. So please make it so that you can turn your phone off. One other thing, when I have the alarm on it doesn’t seem to go off. So please fix that. One last thing, I do not like how you have to have an account for it can’t we just use the app. Every feature says please sign in and what if I don’t want to make an account for everything.
:)
by Rainyday0195 on 2018/05/08 04:03
I like this app! It makes me want to go to bed and wake up "on time" so I don't destroy my building. It would be nice if we could rotate the direction of the buildings in our towns, and have even just a little more freedom in placement inside the square footage of land (so we don't have a lamppost that sits right in the middle of its square--it would be nice if we could place it closer to the edge of the square, like if we wanted to have lamps line the side of the road, for example). Just some thoughts. ;) I like this app, it's a great idea to make going to bed and waking up early fun.
😕
by kokonut Tree on 2019/05/20 02:07
Compared to forest , this app seems a lot more complicated and I’ve been using it for a week but I still am baffled about how it works. It’s not so encouraging as well cos you don’t get to buy buildings like you can for forest so it’s kinda not motivating to look forward to. I don’t know what the coins are for too if you can’t buy buildings and only expect unexpected ones to pop up. It’s very expensive to demolish a building too unlike forest . I’m not a big fan of this app , but since I love its brother Forest, I keep using it and am giving a chance anyway. Maybe after using it for a month , my view may change but who knows, of course .🤫
I love this app
by theesavvy1 on 2021/01/31 20:17
I use this app almost every day and it has been instrumental in helping me get more sleep. My biggest problem is usually telling myself “okay 5 more minutes” and then scrolling through different apps on my phone for the next 2 hours. But since this app gives you a tangible reward for not doing that, I’m finding that it’s so much easier to fall asleep. 5/5 stars, highly recommend for people like me who need motivation to stay off their phones.
So helpful
by WhiteCoatMermaid on 2019/04/01 11:03
I’m a medical student and staying on a specific sleep schedule was difficult for me but with SleepTown I’ve been able to stay on track the whole semester so far. Love waking up to the new buildings every day and the only thing I wish was different were the ability to change the orientation of the buildings similar to how we can change the orientation of most of the decorations. Overall this is a great app in my opinion and was well worth the few dollar cost that I spent on it!
Amazing
by forestytrees on 2020/12/01 19:49
This is an amazing app. I have had much better habits after using it. I had some days when I just got very tired and needed to sleep around 8 or 9 pm, which is more than 2 hours before my set goal for going to bed. Then the app would tell me that I can only start to build 2 hours before. Sometimes the body’s need is not that strict- I had hoped for some flexibility in terms of how early I could start building- to go sleep earlier is no harm- but went over board surely hurts.
This app could be 100x better l
by blackfaerie773 on 2017/12/05 07:08
I can't even use it because of the hard and fast bed time. Every other sleep app lets you change your bedtime goal day-to-day if you want. My goal is not to be in bed at PRECISELY 10 pm every single night, it's to get in bed by the bedtime I choose for that day, and go for 8 hours with playing with my phone. I purchased this app because I loved Forest and was super excited to use another one of your apps, and the app is great in every other way. But it's unusable until there is the choice of some flexibility. As soon as that happens I will be happy to update this review, start using the app, and hopefully give a tip if it works well. Pleeeeeeeeease institute this
Adorable and Functional
by 3rdMistborn on 2020/04/10 10:07
I enjoy waking up to a new little building that comes with my town! It’s been a fun new habit to integrate into my sleeping/waking routines. I adore sending little screenshots to friends and getting excited over buildings I got. Great app for its cuteness (similar to its sister app, Forest!) and smooth functionality. I’m hoping I can have more little Japan-themed buildings as they are quite close to what I saw when traveling in Japan. So lovely! Thank you for making such a handy and cute app! 💕🌸
Thanks for the help!
by Namajamaspade on 2019/04/29 22:58
As a huge fan of Forest, I had to check this out. I’m constantly wanting time away from my phone, but nighttime is rough, always thinking of one more thing to Google, or one more check of the ‘gram. This app is so motivating in the morning, just the little act of seeing my building and town grow more and more makes me want to keep using it and keep being productive and not self-sabotage with that snooze button. Thanks for this one!
“Gamifying” healthy habits
by jthingelstad on 2017/12/12 02:39
I found the UI confusing at first. Wake time and alarm clock time was confusing. How to actually use a Ticket 🎟 was confusing too. I destroyed my first 3 houses on accident as a result. After I figured it out I realized I was using it wrong at first. Am now really enjoying SleepTown. It’s a good way to reinforce healthy habits. It sure is a slow build though to get coins but as other reviewers have said better to do that than letting people buy quick progress. Wouldn’t mind seeing something like Forests elixirs though.
So far so good
by Lord Ogilby  on 2019/01/18 20:55
I’ve only used this for two sleep cycles so far. So far so good! It’s really motivated me to get to sleep and wake up on time because I love building the town. The graphics are really detailed and it’s great eye candy. If the graphics were boring then this app wouldn’t work. I do not agree with the reviewer who said it was “too strict.” There is a 2-hour buffer allowed before bedtime and another before wake-up time. That’s plenty of room. The app has to be a little strict, otherwise it wouldn’t work. So he is wrong. I’m not sure what the long term will be, but I love apps that work right away. You don’t even need an account to try it out. You can set one up later to sync. Thank you for making a visually-appealing app in a crowed marketplace of ugly, flat, fluorescent, pastel, gross-looking, unintuitive apps.
Amazing!!!!
by V2EX Livid on 2018/09/26 14:18
I love how you designed the game and all the houses in the town and it’s very creative and this game has completely been an absolute blast. I got this game a few days ago and I have always enjoyed playing this and I discovered all different types of houses and I think that is very creative of people. I’m thinking that MAYBE you could do a day one which means you can’t use your phone in the day and you will get house furniture and create a mansion.
this is SO GOOD
by themegannoel on 2020/05/03 16:46
as a college student, my sleep schedule is WRECKED. I knew something had to change. I haven’t had this consistent of a sleep schedule since I was in middle school. I’m consistently tired when I should go to bed (and I had been taking melatonin before and now I’m on my fourth night in a row of not having to do that. it’s magic) and then I’m used to waking up when it has me waking up. seriously. it’s the best few bucks I’ve ever spent.
On a True Sleep Schedule
by Rory Chaze on 2019/04/12 04:18
Sleepy Town actually makes me want to go to sleep at a decent hour to wake up at a decent hour instead of messing with my sleep schedule every day! Whenever it’s on, and I’m having a bit of insomnia, i don’t think about picking up my phone anymore because I don’t want to destroy the building I’m working on! It gets me to take action against my phone usage at night for sure! Would highly recommend!
Awesome
by Littlejayjay on 2018/09/24 15:58
SleepTown has definitely helped me stay on track with a sleep schedule. I decided I needed to wake up earlier and I would always use my phone late into the night, but that all changed with this app. The gamification really works and I enjoy seeing all the different buildings I’ve made. I do think that adding a 5 minute buffer time would be nice, but either way, i’ve always gone to bed on time. Thank you!
good could be better
by lavenderchai on 2020/10/13 11:11
This app is good, I love all the buildings and the approach it takes to motivate you to sleep. However there could be improvements. First of all I think it would be nice to have an option to choose whether you are strict about bedtime but not wake up time or vice versa. For busy people like me I use this app mainly to motivate me to go to sleep on time. Most of the time I wake up at the same time but obviously I still oversleep sometimes — but this is a good thing for me because of how sleep deprived I am, and I wouldn’t like to be penalized for that.
Could use some work...
by PopeCanopycom on 2017/09/29 10:50
The alarm has seemed to not be going off for me recently, and all of my buildings this week are gone. The app also seems to be lacking in flexibility in the times. Maybe you can only "go to sleep" 1 hour before the designated time, but when you wake up, there is like 5 minutes of flexibility. But at night there isn't any. You HAVE to be off your phone by that time. I once was watching a movie with my friends and was 5 late of my goal.
Defeats the purpose.
by CMHnotOutofBED on 2020/04/01 01:26
Purchased this app because the UI looked nice and wanted an app that would get me out of bed by a certain time very morning. From the concept, this seemed like it would work. First night, alarm never went off in the morning. Even when I hit wake up after the require time, I still was awarded the building instead of being punished. Maybe I misunderstood the app, but three days later of the same thing, something just don’t seem right. Apparently if you want this app to hold you accountable, it won’t. UI was still nice though so here’s your two stars.
Super excited to use it, but
by Silverlights88 on 2019/01/04 16:02
Just downloaded this app. Will rate again a month in. I’m a HUGGGGE fan of Forest. It’s my favorite app. This app from the start is a bit more glitchy and slow. Plus, I wanted to be able to put my phone to bed at 7pm (I will be going to bed at 11), and wake up the phone at 10am (I will be getting up at 7am), But it wouldn’t let me set it for that long of a time period. I want to be distraction free in the mornings and nights. Being able I set it for any amount of time would be super helpful. I can’t be the only one wanting this.
I’m actually going to bed on time
by knitfriendly on 2019/07/01 09:06
This is a fun way to stay on track with going to bed on time. I used to say to myself, “I’ll just check one thing on my phone and then go to sleep.” That one thing would turn into an hour of phone time, causing me to get an hour less sleep. Since using this app, I now go to bed on time and read on my kindle until I get sleepy. I love this app!
Too rigid but I have a suggestion
by Shqkfhxnaelgixjanefx on 2019/06/11 14:09
I have a bad habit of going to bed too late, and of using my phone before bed. This app tries to alleviate that issue and I think that’s great. Forest is also an amazing app. That said, I wish I could adjust my bedtime without completely resetting my streak progress: My ideal bedtime would be 10:45. Before using the app, my bedtime was closer to 2:00 AM. I set 1:30 AM as a bedtime to have something to shoot for. So if I go to bed between 11:30 and 1:30 I can hit the “sleep” button and be good. I slowly worked back to a better bedtime. Now that I’m in the rhythm, there are nights where I want to go to bed at 11:00 PM but I have to wait extra time to hit the “sleep” button. Counter-productive. MY SUGGESTION: Allow bedtime and/or wake up time to be adjusted by 10 minutes every day without penalty, so that people like me can slowly reach a good habit.

This app is actually encouraging me to fix my sleep schedule in a cute lil sims-like town-building way, I get exited to wake up & see the new building I've earned every day. Only issue is i don't entirely understand the weekend snooze option, as I regularly sleep in on weekends, but it still builds and destroys a new house, which is then on my lil digital (unedit-able) property block. That issue might just me on me reading something wrong though tbh. In conclusion, this is a cute app and I am HERE for it.

Aside from getting a good nights sleep, I’m using this app to make me get off my phone before I go to bed. The fact that the idea of a digital house is taking me off my phone is incredible. I’ve got two of this companies apps now and both have been super helpful. Can’t wait to see what they come up with next. I wish the alarm was louder cause I’ve slept through it a few times and lost a streak but other than that it’s great.
I can finally sleep

This app is amazing and has really helped regulate my sleep schedule. One thing that i would want to see is a change in how circles are run. My friend has to wake up at 4:45am for her job but i wake up at 8am. I really dont want to wake up at 4am but i also really want to have a circle with her. Please change it so that we can both work towards our different goals!
Like it but can we have different goals in the same circle

I love this app. But when I invite my husband to monitor each other’s sleeping time, we have to set the same goal. This is not very practical and it is restrictive to family members for encouraging each other to form a healthy sleeping habit. Everyone has different sleeping time. A circle should not force the same goal.
Kinda Nice :')

This app will not force you to build a healthy routine. Only you can control whether or not your sleep matters to you. However, this is a nice app to track progress and have a little bit of fun, external purpose. I like building little towns and generating revenue. I don't yet play with friends, but I hope to get some on board because I like goal setting with accountability from others. Ultimately, it must be on you to decide to listen to the little notification that tells you to go to bed in 15 minutes. Get back on it if you break a streak. Try not to lose your cool. And honestly? Get some sleep. :) This app is a good one, and I thank those who put in the work to make it as good as it is.
