Verdict: A superb app for those struggling with insomnia.
What is it?
There are all sorts of apps and gadgets for monitoring your sleep, but few of them give much feedback on how to actually sleep better. That’s what Shleep is for. When you first start the app, it asks a short series of questions to gauge the general quality and quantity of sleep you’re getting. It will then coach you towards better sleep through short daily videos (or just audio if you prefer), which highlight things that can help and then give you specific things you can try doing – or not doing as the case may be.
Some of these suggestions are obvious and others are less so, but putting them into practice can make a real difference. Shleep will ask how you slept each night, so you can build up a picture of your sleep quality and whether it’s improving. There are also handy tools like a sleep debt calculator and the option to have daily tips and exercises emailed to you to refer back to later.
The app requires a subscription, and it isn’t cheap. Of course, if the app improves your sleep then it’s worth it, but you won’t know until you’ve tried it and therefore making downloading it a bit of a gamble.
JetPal in association with Fur & Feathers has launched a new app aimed at making the pet import and export industry more convenient. It will allow pet owners and other customers to monitor the location of precious cargo such as pets, personal items and even people.
A first for the GCC market, the service is available now in Bahrain. Customers can utilise real time tracking via a subscription service for 150 fils per day. Download the application to a smart phone, select a plan to suit your requirements, and a device will be linked and provided for your account (one per subscription).
