The Best Sleep Tracking App for Android Users

Feb 20, 2019

  “Sleeping is my favorite hobby” said our new intern yesterday. “Mine is dancing” replied my Android developer coworker. Their light chit-chat made me think about the importance of a good night sleep and how sleeping results to be a challenge sometimes. Small business owners and independent professionals (like hair stylists, beauticians, spa owners, dentists, gym owners, psychologists, driving instructors, fitness trainers, nutritionists, massage therapists, etc.) have a lot on their plates during the day as they work super hard, and many struggle to sleep well at times.

Changes for Android users, due to restrictions from Google
