Pzizz – Sleep, Nap, Focus - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Our team had built a number of apps and websites before, but never anything quite like Pzizz. It ended up being an incredible challenge.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The app appears simple, but under the hood, it’s incredibly complex due to a variety of unique features.
One of the hallmarks of Pzizz is that the narration and music change each time you use it, and that each session must adapt to the time length you specify. On top of that, there’s a layer of audio effects like “3D Voice” to simulate the narrator hypnotically moving around your head.
Accomplishing these features cross-platform required a huge effort, and we’re constantly making updates and tweaks to improve the system to this day.

Pzizz helps you quickly quiet your mind, fall asleep fast, stay asleep, and wake up refreshed.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Chess.com (especially 4 player chess!); It’s been amazing to see what the Chess.com team has been able to do to popularize Chess and its variants in the modern era. In a Fortnite and League of Legends world, an 800+-year-old board game is still one of the most popular stream categories on Twitch.

The Mesmerize App - Incredibly trippy visuals. They are amazing! So relaxing to get lost into.

How long have you been working on this app?

Since the beginning of 2016.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

How to help people overcome their insomnia to fall asleep fast, stay asleep and wake up refreshed.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

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 narrations 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).

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

For the last 1 year, we’ve been working on a big update to Pzizz to be released very soon that has a ton of new features and content. Stay tuned :)

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Ultimately the proof is in trying it for yourself. We’d love people to download the app and try it for themselves to see how Pzizz can help them wakeup transformed.

Pzizz – Sleep, Nap, Focus

About App:

“Pzizz helps you get to sleep faster and get a 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

Using the latest clinical research (see our website for in-depth details), the app's patented system plays you "dreamscapes"— a sleep-optimized mix of music, voiceover, and sound effects that change each night, to quickly quiet your mind, put you to sleep, keep you asleep, and then wake you up feeling refreshed.
If you want to sleep better at night or take incredible power naps during the day, this is the app for you! 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.

Beat your insomnia with our 'sleep module' to fall asleep fast, stay asleep, and wakeup feeling refreshed. Personalize your sleep experience with customizable options including "3D Voice" and an energetic “Wakeup;” three and a half minutes of music crafted to gently bring you back from slumber and start your day with energy.

Napping has been proven to enhance performance, alertness, and improve your mood. Customize your naps with our specially designed nap narrations and music. Get rid of that groggy feeling and improve your overall well-being.

The 'focus module' is music designed to help you get more work done.
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.

*Simplicity* Sleep at the push of a button! Unlike other sleep solutions, you don’t have to change your behavior, keep a sleep diary, or limit your activities. Just listen to Pzizz, and enjoy incredible sleep.
*No Side Effects* Our only side effect is sleep! Unlike medications or supplements, you’ll never have to worry about adverse effects.
*Variety* Every time you listen to Pzizz it creates a unique session for you. This ensures your brain doesn’t get fatigued from hearing the same things over and over again, and helps maintain effectiveness over time.
*Highly customizable* Adjust sleep duration, volumes, 3D effect, and voice gender for a fully personalized listening experience.
*Clinically Validated* Pzizz is incredibly effective and clinically validated. Read more about the science behind Pzizz at blog.pzizz.com.
