Sometimes, the best app is a simple app — because, sometimes, that simple app is a handy app!

Such is the case with our latest App of the Week, which was actually created a couple weeks ago during our first-ever #CoronaHackathon. So, whatever you do, don’t sleep on NapKeeper!

While you may initially brush off NapKeeper as a novelty app, I’ve actually gotten to think up some legitimate uses for it! Example: Let’s say you’re trying to gauge how many hours of sleep you get each day for health purposes — NapKeeper is precisely the tool you could use to count sleep hours without toting around any additional machinery! Or let’s say you’re one of those fancy new¬†polyphasic sleepers and you need something to add up how much total sleep you get in a day. Once again, it’ll be NapKeeper to the rescue!

Structurally, the app is quite intuitive and easy too navigate. There is extensive use of the CoronaUI “picker”¬†controls in the app to make it easier to choose various attributes of each nap, and then save them in a never-ending “nap log” whose figures you can play around with later on (average nap time, longest/shortest nap, etc.).

And not to mention that creator Jay Jennings coded nearly all of this app in a span of 12 hours during our #CoronaHackathon. In fact, NapKeeper ended up earning Jay a Runner-Up prize while competing remotely all the way from Alaska.

That’s certainly nothing to snooze at! ;-)
