Getting enough sleep is hugely important for our health, but we often overlook just how crucial it really is. Sleep helps improve our ability to learn, it speeds up our metabolism, it improves our mood, it promotes cardiovascular health and it even helps fight disease. As important as sleep is, it stands to reason that the iOS App Store would be flooded with apps that claim to help you get a better rest each night. Finding a good option can be difficult, but it becomes significantly easier when one of the top-rated options becomes free for a limited time.
