Sleep as Android Update Brings New Dashboard View

The sleep monitoring app, Sleep as Android, has a new update rolling out that brings a huge number of improvements and new features.  The most exciting new feature is a new Dashboard view, allowing you to look at all of your sleep related data on one page in the app.

The Dashboard is customizable, allowing you to pin different cards to it to give you information that is personalized to you.  By default, it will show you when your next alarm is, your sleep score, your last sleep recording, your sleep Deficit chart and any advise to help improve your sleep.

For those of you who are using Sleep as Android already, Urbandroid who develops the app is asking for feedback on the Dashboard as it will likely be the default view in the next release.
