Dreams Controller

Do you believe it is possible to control your dreams? With "Dreams Controller" it is.

It is a common experience for an individual to incorporate actual, external sounds into the ongoing story being lived in their dream. For example, the sound of a far off police siren may not be jarring enough to awaken the dreamer, but the sound of that siren may be incorporated into the dream, changing its direction as it unfolds. Beginning in the 1970's, researchers began experiments into the phenomena of lucid dreaming, maintaining conscious awareness while dreaming. There followed many fascinating studies into the nature of REM sleep, lucid dreaming, and the ability of some individuals to control the theme and direction of their dreams.

Dreams Controller allows the user to easily set the times when they plan to begin sleeping and end sleeping. Then, the user may select the number of times (0 - 40) during this period they would like the app to play back a pre-recorded message or cue. From the Select Dreams tab the user may choose to either Take Control of the dream, or receive aural Inspirations while dreaming. Messages available in the Take Control menu include: "This is a dream"; "You are dreaming"; "Are you dreaming"; and "You are dreaming - you can do anything you want". Users may experiment with various messages to discover the one best suited to facilitating their own experience of lucid dreaming.

The Inspirations menu lists highly realistic sound effects to help guide or influence the direction or setting of a dream. These include the following sounds: Airplane, Applause, Baby, Battle, Beach, Cafe, Forest, Motorcycle, and Rain. New in the latest version is a Create Dream button that enables the user to record their own message or sound, which can be named and saved for future use or sharing.

Also new is the ability to schedule messages throughout the sleep period, or just the final two hours (dreams are most common during the last two hours of sleep). In deference to the film Inception, which explores dreams within dreams and the reality of the dream world, the app also features an option to receive messages (0 - 40) while awake, so that the user may indeed verify whether they are dreaming.

Feature Highlights:

* The user leaves their iPhone where they can hear it while they sleep
* Dreams Controller can be set to provide messages or inspiration during sleep
* Explore lucid dreaming, being awake inside while dreaming
* Create custom messages or audio cues
* Control dreams and help prevent nightmares
* The Dreams Controller app runs in the background
* Share dreams with in-app Facebook connectivity

Definitely worth it - ★★★★★
The updates on this app are making it better and better. Definitely a good one to get if you're trying to get lucid. It's nice to see a developer that actually cares how their app is doing and makes regular changes to make it even better. - by Dre4mch4ser - Germany - Version 2.1.5 - Feb 1, 2011

This app is just what I was looking for. It is the perfect tool for achieving lucidity in dreams, and it is easy to use.

I used this app last night and got three lucid dreams. My recommendation is to use it on the max number of messages (40). - by ----------------> - United States - Version 2.1.1 - 13 January 2011
