1. SleepBot – Wake Up When You’re Ready

Helpful Apps

Alarm clocks have an uncanny ability to catch you in the middle of a dream, but with SleepBot, you can make sure that you wake up at a time that’s good for your body. The app can also give you data about the length and quality of your sleep. All you need to do is set up a 30-minutes time frame in which you’d like to wake up, place the phone at the side of the bed with the app running, and let the app analyze your sleep by using the phone’s motion detection ability. Just remember to plug your phone in for the night, as the app may drain weaker batteries.

2. Anti Mosquito – Repel Mosquitos with Your Phone

Helpful Apps

Summer brings with it mosquitos, which means itchy bites. But instead of using chemicals or zappers, you can just install an app on your phone. These apps use high-frequency sounds that the human ear can’t pick up, but mosquitos can’t stand. For maximum effect, hook up the smartphone to loudspeakers.
