      I've created a data analysis worksheet for the app version 1.1 (currently pending approval in the app store).
      This is an example of the data that is available with the app.
      http://luciddreamingapp.com/appdata/...worksheet.xlsx

      Please take a look at this, I'd love to hear your questions.

      "singularity epoch: 57" Can you tell me what this means? I've seen it in my data log too.

      Also, that was one crazy Dream Ev!

      Interesting that androids came in to it as well. You father around the iPhone point, and then you grandma with the Android phone.

      I had some quite beautiful, philosophical/mystical dreams last night too.

      I'll have a look at that worksheet later, just gave it a browse now but I'm going to have to concentrate on it more I think.

      This morning I had a problem. I woke up earlier, can't remember what time, the app was still on. I went back to sleep and woke up at about 8:30, and the phone was locked, because the app had stopped or the app wasn't running anymore. Seems it stopped at 7:37.
      Did I touch the iPod in my sleep or something? Or is it a bug?

      I just remembered I put it in Beginner Mode last night. I suppose it would have been easy to tap the stop button by accident. So never mind lol

      What happens when you click the sound and vibration icons in the middle of the clock? They turn around a bit and back, but does it change any settings?

      To answer your earlier question, epoch 57: the app autosaves data every 5 minutes. I will probably take that message out, right now it is there for debug purposes.

      There are no vibration customization in place right now. It is limited to 2 vibrations at 3 seconds apart.
      The audio button in the middle should bring up an audio picker. If it doesn't , you can still select custom audio by opening the reminder screen > info > the reload button in top left.

      Yeah it does bring up an audio selection screen.
      Was just wondering why the little icons turned. But it makes sense now

      I have customised every thing now, hopefully I'll be LD'ing next sleep

      Using the Zeo Sleep wireless headband, I was able to compare the Singularity Experience with the Zeo sleep Manager app, to understand if the app delivers reminders in REM.

      Short answer is : YES, Singularity Experience DOES play reminders in REM!


      Here's a full length presentation of results
      http://luciddreamingapp.com/appdata/...%20Manager.pdf

      Here's a more detailed description of the findings
      Breakthrough: Singularity Experience Data compared with EEG data - Lucid Dreaming App Lucid Dreaming App

      Here's Zeo sleep data


      Here's the singularity sleep data


      Comparison of sleep graphs (both X and bars are 5 minute wide)


      Here's when the app delivered reminders superimposed upon Zeo's REM graph. What was really cool is that *I hypothesize* Zeo picked up my brain's response to the reminder played in 2/4 dreams! Unfortunately they were just too long and I do not remember earlier episodes to comment upon the effect of the reminder.

      Another interesting discovery is that the dream with a degree of dream control and meta-thinking about the dream was rated as "Awake" by Zeo. this dream was reported at 7:49 and is preceeded by 15 minutes of "Awake", while I was dreaming.

      I have tried using DEILD beginner mode for the last few nights but according to the graphs, the app closes/crashes an hour in.

      I am jailbroken, but I made sure that I had at least over 100mb of memory free before i started the app. I still crashed this morning.

      Well, I can't thank you enough Ev. Not sure if it was the app, or just sheer coincidence, but I managed to have my first lucid in a while using your application this morning, here's the dream.
      Keep dreaming.

      That's really good news! "WILD without even trying" sounds fairly close to dream re-entry, which is also a flavor of WILD. As for your dream's content, that's a lot of stuff you had there. How long do you think you dream lasted?


      PS. I've tested the retail version of the app, it is stable on both my (not jailbroken) iPod touch 4g and iPhone4. The iPhone has been through rigorous testing, I've carried it in my pocket with the app running for over 4.5 hours, I've been multi-tasking, listening to music. The app's logic fired several times, which was really awesome and helped me practice listening to the reminder while being out and about. One reminder played while I was shopping, and I stopped, did a few reality checks and became aware. Another one played as I was stopped at a traffic light. I did multiple RCs on the car's digital clock. Those reminders were totally random and unexpected, which was really cool. I'm pleased with the quality of my audio selection for the reminder. It faded in really nice, did not startle me, but instead lead me to expect the second part of the reminder.

      I will publish a youtube video with a brief description of the reminder that I'm currently using.

      PPS. the app did crash on iPod after 7 hours of testing. I identified the possible cause and have put in a bugfix that will prevent the issue from appearing again.

      Not longer than 15 minutes. I had recorded when I had awoken before the dream, and when the dream had ended.
      Keep dreaming.

      Still can't write a review/rate it because it didn't work at all last night.
      Not sure whether it was my fault. I may have somehow accidentally pressed something. Because when I woke up at around 7:50 the last alarm reminder was highlighted and protruding from the clock. Not sure what that means, but it didn't play reminders all night.
      I clicked on it and it went greyed out again like the rest of them and according to the log it played two more reminders after that. But I didn't hear them.

      Hey,
      Check out this screenshot to understand when reminders have been played. Currently they are played at the very start of REM phase (light green). It's difficult to recall dreams at that stage. if you set a custom reminder delay to let's say 5-10 minutes, you will be more likely to hear the reminder.

      I feel like mine have been playing more toward the end of REM.

      I had another question about the custom reminders. With the green circles around the clock, is that when the app starts searching for REM signs? Or does it search for them all the time?
      Coz if it's searching all the time, how does it choose which custom reminder to use if the REM is not on one of those green circles?

      In the screenshot above, the green markers are when I've reported dreams. This is intended to help you see which reminder might've been integrated into a dream. If you have a red light reminder with powerful music, as you tap on the dream from the same sleep cycle, you will be able to tell if the reminder was integrated into the dream's content.

      As you align the Singularity screen black marker with your bedtime, each reminder on the singularity experience would align with the end of a sleep cycle. So for the image above, my first reminder would be played for the first dream, 2nd reminder for the 2nd dream, etc.

      I'd like to give you a preview of the Singularity Experience Version 1.2

      I'm working with better ways to visualize a lot of dream data, here's what I have so far:

      1) Better graphs:

      We can dream during any time of the night, but vivid, prolonged dreams are mostly reported in REM. The graph shows sleep cycles over the course of the night and is color-coded with the probability of dreaming. Bright green is REM, Dark green is deep sleep (almost no dreaming), green is light sleep stages that precede REM. Gray is light sleep that I cannot score effectively.

      Blue is when the reminder logic is active. If the blue segment appears on your graph, an it precedes REM, your app's logic will work and will play reminders before REM.







      Now the markers on the history graph bring you over to the dream journal entry, so you can quickly see not only during which sleep stage you've recalled a dream, but also get a feeling for what kind of dream it was by reading the dream journal entry.


      Sleep History would also benefit from the multi-colored markers, letting you see the pattern of your dream recall. By analyzing my sleep history that way and looking at the results of the Zeo sleep tracker, I was able to say that when I wake up from my dreams, there's still some "REM juice" left, and I can try to WILD or just re-enter the dream right away.

      Before I thought that I woke up at the very end of the dream, but apparently I wake up at the start of REM!

      Haha! Hm ok, well that gives me some hope too
      Now I feel kind of stupid for not trying hard enough to WILD after the app woke me up lol

      Singularity Experience: The lucid dreaming app version 1.2 has been submitted to the App store! I estimate it will be released within a week. This version introduces new data visualization tools and fixes some app crashes. This frees me to explore Zeo and Android version, hopefully getting the EEG to work with the app.
