In other words, your days of counting hundreds of sheep are long gone…


Slumber offers a huge selection of sleep meditations and bedtime stories that can help calm your mind and ease off to sleep naturally.

Unlike other apps, Slumber adds new tracks every night, so you’ll always have something new to look forward to – even as you’re getting ready for bed.

You literally push a button on the app whenever you’re ready to take a snooze!
