Understand Your Sleep Patterns with ElectricSleep for Android
Tossing and turning in bed is the reality for many adults nowadays. The amount of stress that we are put under during our waking days far outweighs any ability to completely rest at night. There is a full branch of science dedicated to studying and understanding sleeping patterns that people go through every day but since not all of us have PhD’s to study and understand what really goes on, we have to depend on other tools to try and make some sense out of our sleeping patterns. XDA member jondwillis has created one of these tools that will allow you to better understand (and even improve) the way you sleep. The device will record any movements that you make during a light sleep night and will sound a gentle alarm to wake you up. The app will record all the data and you will be able to study it, understand it, and hopefully use the new knowledge acquired to improve on your sleeping patterns.
If this sounds like something you may need to use, please drop by the thread and provide some feedback for the dev, so that the app can be improved and fixed if bugs are present.
In an effort to spread its popularity, I though I would share my open-source app, ElectricSleep here. It has been in beta for a couple months and is starting to get pretty stable and more and more feature rich.
You can find more information in the application thread.

It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....
More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
