The Sleepio app sleep tracker uses a clinically-proven program to help you fall asleep 50% faster without the need to take any pills or medicine that will induce sleep. Sleepio was created by Professor Colin Espie of the University of Oxford, which comes into play in the app, as a cheery cartoon character called 'The Prof' serves as your personal guide to a better night's sleep.

With the help from the app, you're able to tell The Prof when you're finding it difficult to fall asleep, wake up, or summon energy throughout the day. The app teaches users a range or cognitive and behavioral techniques in order to help them adopt a better lifestyle for an improved sleep pattern. The app even syncs to the Apple HealthKit, or Jawbone Up to import even more sleep data.
