Love the app and now love the ability to activate this more easily without a screen device to help get me to sleep. Really helps me avoid using screens before bed as i can activate via voice. the guys voice is super relaxing too!
This app - in particular, the sleep casts - have been brilliant for my 9yo daughters sleep routine. my only feedback is that it would be great to be able to set up a voice command to be able to go straight to sleep casts rather than having to navigate there each time.
