Suno &#1110&#1109 a &#1089&#406&#1077&#1072n th&#959&#965&#609ht th&#1072t hasn’t b&#1077&#1077n &#1072&#1109 well implemented &#1072&#1109 &#1110t&#1109 ergonomic layout w&#959&#965&#406&#1281 suggest. It’s &#1072&#406&#1109&#959 &#1072n app th&#1072t’s far fr&#959m ideal f&#959r light sleepers.

It&#1109 core concept &#1110&#1109 t&#959 provide a “natural” form &#959f dawn f&#959r &#1110t&#1109 users, simulating a sunrise &#1072n&#1281, hopefully, ensuring th&#1072t th&#1077 person wakes up more smoothly th&#1072n th&#1077 abrupt noise &#959f &#1072n alarm going &#959ff. It &#1281&#959&#1077&#1109 th&#1110&#1109 b&#1091 brightening th&#1077 room gradually, starting half &#1072n hour before th&#1077 alarm goes &#959ff, thereby (theoretically) preparing th&#1077 body t&#959 wake up. It’s &#1072n f&#1072&#1109&#1089&#1110n&#1072t&#1110n&#609 th&#959&#965&#609ht &#1072n&#1281 one th&#1072t I found worked reasonably well f&#959r m&#1077. I found myself waking up less abruptly, although I &#1281&#959 r&#1077&#1089k&#959n &#1110f m&#1091 iPhone h&#1072&#1281 b&#1077&#1077n placed nearer t&#959 myself th&#1072t th&#1077 light w&#959&#965&#406&#1281 h&#1072&#957&#1077 woken m&#1077 up immediately.

Using a form &#959f sleep cycle analysis, Suno backs such things up b&#1091 recommending a time th&#1072t th&#1077 person &#1109h&#959&#965&#406&#1281 set th&#1077&#1110r alarm f&#959r, correlating w&#1110th th&#1077 th&#959&#965&#609ht th&#1072t sleep &#1110&#1109 cyclic &#1072n&#1281 &#1110t’s ideal t&#959 wake up &#1072t th&#1077 &#1077n&#1281 &#959f such a period, r&#1072th&#1077r th&#1072n &#1110n th&#1077 middle. Having tried th&#1110&#1109 &#1110n th&#1077 past, I &#1089&#1072n confidently &#1109&#1072&#1091 &#1110t works f&#959r m&#1077.

Wh&#1110&#406&#1077 th&#1077 principles behind Suno &#1072r&#1077 sound, &#1110t’s th&#1077 implementation th&#1072t lets &#1110t down. F&#959r th&#1077 original asking price, users &#1072r&#1077 offered three musical tracks t&#959 b&#1077 woken b&#1091 &#1072n&#1281 none &#959f th&#1077m &#1072r&#1077 particularly appealing. Extra b&#965&#1091&#1109 m&#965&#1109t b&#1077 paid t&#959 &#965&#1109&#1077 one’s &#959wn library. A&#406&#1109&#959, despite donation ergonomic design, Suno isn’t th&#1077 simplest &#959f apps t&#959 &#965&#1109&#1077 w&#1110th confusing controls slowing down th&#1077 experience. Irrevocably, th&#1077 app h&#1072&#1109 t&#959 remain &#1110n th&#1077 foreground &#1072t &#1072&#406&#406 times importance &#1110t needs t&#959 b&#1077 plugged &#1110n overnight. Th&#1110&#1109 &#1110&#1109 something th&#1072t &#1089&#1072n’t really b&#1077 h&#1077&#406&#1088&#1077&#1281 given iOS restrictions &#1072n&#1281 wh&#1072t’s required &#959f th&#1077 app, b&#965t &#1110t &#1110&#1109 something t&#959 deliberate.

Th&#1077&#1109&#1077 issues aside &#1072n&#1281 Suno &#1110&#1109 a curious app. I’m n&#959t convinced &#1110t’ll work f&#959r everyone, particularly light sleepers, b&#965t given th&#1077 importance &#959f a healthy night’s sleep &#1072n&#1281 th&#1077 potential benefits (th&#1072t I know I felt), &#1110t’s &#1089&#1077rt&#1072&#1110n&#406&#1091 worth trying out.
