Description

Dynamic audio designed to help you get great sleep, take refreshing naps, and stay deeply focused. "I love Pzizz... Best I've used by a mile" - J.K. Rowling Featured in The New York Times, WIRED, Engadget, Gizmodo, Product Hunt, Lifehacker, Mashable, Newsweek, Sports Illustrated and more! PRESS MENTIONS “…Hibbert credits the app for helping cure his insomnia and diminish his postgame dependence on Ambien.” – NBA Star Roy Hibbert speaking to Sports Illustrated “That night, I nestled under my covers, downloaded the full version of Pzizz and turned it on… I was out before 20 minutes had passed and haven't looked back since.” - Jenna Wortham, New York Times “Pzizz helps you get to sleep faster and get more restful sleep with a combination of soothing sounds and voice cues aimed at helping you relax, destress, and get to sleep. In my experience, it works really well.” - Adam Pash, Lifehacker HOW IT WORKS To understand how, you first have to understand why. Poor sleep has been declared a public health epidemic by the CDC. 70MM people in the US, 31% of Europe and 2 billion people globally suffer from insomnia. The vast majority of cases of people suffering from poor sleep are caused by a disease called, “too much thinking;” people lie awake at night unable to shut off their brains. So the key is if you can quiet the mind, you can induce sleep. That’s what Pzizz does. Our patented system intelligently combines music, voiceover, and sound effects that are optimized for each part of your sleep cycle, to quickly quiet your mind, put you to sleep, keep you asleep, and wake you up feeling refreshed. All you have to do is listen to Pzizz. Headphones/earbuds are recommended for optimal effectiveness, but your built-in phone speaker will work too. WHAT MAKES PZIZZ DIFFERENT? Our sleep researchers work closely with our audio engineers to create beautiful "dreamscapes" that are backed by academic psycho-acoustics, and we pair these musical dreamscapes with voice scripts based on clinical sleep interventions, and then infuse them with personalization driven through our learning algorithms so you have a different audio sequence each night (which is important to keep Pzizz effective over time). It’s incredibly potent and clinically validated. You can read more about the science behind Pzizz on our blog. FOCUS MODULE One of the biggest causes of “too much thinking” at night is work stress. To help combat this and the general epidemic of distraction, we created the “Focus Module.” Built around ‘focuscapes,’ environments of sound that help you get in the zone and be productive, backed by the same thorough research we use to create our dreamscapes. Each focuscape has a ‘focus’ section which gets you into full concentration and a ‘cooldown’ section which brings you back out gently. FEATURES * Dreamscapes * Focuscapes * Randomized Narrations * Wake up music * Cooldown music * Custom timer and alarm * Music and voice fade out timers * Custom alarm songs and tones * Track history * Separate music and voice volume control * Fully offline compatible * 3D Voice * Healthkit integration * Airplay support * Ratings * Suggestions * Nudge reminders * Favorites SUBSCRIPTION AND TERMS: Try Pzizz "Pro" free for seven days (we don't auto-charge after the trial ends).

  • Very good, but seriously, the free version needs a little bit more

    Tbh, I understand that you need money to be able to develop this app beyond what it is right now, however I find that with sleeping problems, I cannot spend myself on just ONE dreamscape. No, I’m not asking for all of them, but a few would be nice. Get to know some of the landscapes the app provides and be able to support members like me who might eventually buy the full membership for a savvier experience napping. I really like this app, but 1 GB for an app that only has one dreamscape in the free mode is kind of a waste of space... and it undermines the purpose of the app. Edit: Alright, so far it seems to assist quite well. The experience is quite nice to handle; but predictable nonetheless, knowing what the voice is going to say at the beginning of a nice nap and towards the end, only because he wouldn’t be interrupting you in the middle of the nap, of course! But it’s not the voice that’s the problem. It works wonderfully with the possible outputs. The background is. Like a bugging constant in a math equation, it remains the same regardless of what experience you have in the free version. Again, a lot of people would pay a metric ton for ALL of the dreamscapes, and I know I would if I could, however adding a few nature-related sounds so that way people wouldn’t plummet into the trap you said regarding some people ‘ Using a favorited dreamscape too many times’ (in which we don’t have much choice besides one) would help the app to present a purpose while having the Focus scapes and all the other dreamscapes as part of a premium membership. Again, More potential buyers>a few dedicated, because I love this app as it could become. Keep the good work!

    It’s very helpful for sleeping and focusing. I used to have to take melatonin to sleep but with this I don’t need it. I also have ADHD so it is difficult for me to focus on schoolwork and things, but this app helps me and makes it just a bit easier.
  • I like the classic. Leave me that option

    By Selom1187
    Please, give us the option to continue using the classic, instead of the of 7-day trial of the pro version or immediate purchase of the pro. I don’t want the trial and be returned to the classic if I don’t sign up for the pro. Thank you
  • My key to sleep

    Pzizz was good in its earlier days but has only grown better with additional soundscapes and narrations. It helps quiet the mind and relax the body, with an added bonus: Using it with snug-fitting earbuds helps prevent noises — a loud truck, a passing car with a blaring radio, a partner who snores — from interrupting slumber. For me, a longtime user of Pzizz, it’s as crucial for sound sleep as a comfortable pillow and a warm blanket.
  • This app works even better than I expected!

    As a chronic insomniac, I held out little hope for this app, despite my therapist’s ringing endorsement. In fact, I expected nothing more than continued frustration at my inability to sleep. To my great surprise, I quickly fell asleep and, even better, stayed asleep on my first try. Still a skeptic, I assumed that I experienced a fluke. Three weeks later, and I’m a true believer. Having undergone successful hypnotherapy several years ago for an unrelated problem, I have concluded that the male voice is hypnotizing me. I was told by the respected psychiatrist who specialized in hypnosis that I would make a great subject, my protestations notwithstanding. I have not forgotten how the mere sound of his voice put my mind into an altered state of consciousness. No swinging pendulums or watches...just a low, soothing voice. After years of frustration, I am now able to fall asleep, and I cannot be happier. The app is beautifully designed and simple to use. I highly recommend it.
  • Amazing

    Don’t know why. It seems like one of those new age pseudo-science BS. But I am no longer plagued by insomnia. And my next day I’m in a far better mood. Without, insomnia and horrible sleep patterns. With, it’s like a miracle. Thank you.
  • Crashing

    By Favebabe
    It’s the first time I use the app and it keeps crashing before it starts playing. I’m sure that it’s a great app based off of the reviews but with the new update, I don’t think it’s going to work for me for a while.
  • Helps me get to sleep quicker, but “Pro” options are weird

    By Regek
    This application essentially generates guided meditation sessions. It's a bit of a learned skill, but pretty fast to pick up. I find it helps me clear my mind from all the clutter which builds up over the day. I finally decided to subscribe to Pro ... and was greeted with a page to create an account *after I paid*. I’m not interested in creating an account. Even though I’ve paid through the App Store, I can’t use any of the premium features without it. So I guess I just paid for nothing?
  • New update omits all male voices!

    By jerrodbear
    Seriously disappointed with this latest update. All scripts claim they have “no male script”. As a paying customer I expect more? Marketing ploy to get your customers to listen to the female voice? Bring back the male voice option!
  • Stops in the middle of the night :(

    Downloaded this app to my moms iPhone and she said she woke up 3 times and saw that the music stopped playing. It didn’t look like someone stopped it but more like it’s playing a silent song. iPhone SE. developers is there any idea if it’s a problem at our end or what? Other than that I used it for couple days now and love it. But never had sleeping problems so idk if it helps sleeping problems ;)
