Sleep Bug App

Sleep Bug AppBy Arnt-Henning Moberg
Recommended Age 0+ years.
This is such a beautiful application, with no baby in my house I am looking for ways I can use it! When my kids were tiny, our home had floorboards, TERRIBLE baby wakers. Then we found a solution, the static of the radio. This worked well enough, but Sleep Bug has not just made an effective white noise app to get even the biggest of us off to sleep, but one that is well thought out, has a fantastic amount of choice even in the free version, and truly realistic sounds that will lead you to believe you are standing beside a babbling brook and many other beautiful places.

The app provides you with a timer so you can have it going for as long as baby sleeps or as a send them off to sleep strategy.  You are also able to manipulate a good amount within each scene by adding or cutting out certain noises by selecting picture boxes on the right of the screen. Want the sound of birds added to your beach scene, simply click on the bird box.

This application while not directly educational, I believe a happy well rested child provides a great platform for learning, earning this application a place in our recommended educational apps. While the app can be used from the early years, please keep in mind it has a mild horror theme which takes it to a 9+ years but this can be turned off.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch & iPad.Requires iOS 4.3 or later.
