Fall Asleep with Counting Sheep

Do you have trouble sleeping?  Have you tried counting sheep – the traditional way?  If that didn’t work, have a look at XDA forum member RDT‘s modern take on this old tried and tested method.

Try Counting Sheep on your Windows Mobile device – the idea is to drag backflipping sheep over the bridge on your screen over and over again, inducing boredom and sending yourself to sleep.

The idea, presumably is to induce boredom while occupying the mind with something simple, repetitive, and rhythmic, all of which are known to help humans sleep.

RDT advises to plug your device into a charger if you intend to use the app to send yourself to sleep as it will run until you wake up – where you will be able to review the number of sheep that you have counted.

Runs on Pocket PC 2002 and higher.

For more information and where to find the free download, check out the application thread.

In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...

Which App for iPhone Do You Wish Was on Android?

Only a few years ago, it was normal for a major app release to be available for iOS but come months later to Android. That seems to no longer be the case, as Android has advanced tremendously with Google putting a huge effort into its Play Store and ecosystem. However, while the majority of major app releases are now made available for both platforms at the same time, there are a few iOS exclusives that some of us wish were on our favorite mobile OS (Hyperlapse comes to mind). Let us know which apps for the iPhone you wish were on Android.
