Bedtime for Sarah Sullivan is a children’s storybook that emphasizes the importance of going to bed, dreams, and those magical moments right before being tucked in.

Now Kelly Paniagua, author of the award-winning children’s book, is planning to bring an interactive story app based on the very same bedtime story to the App Store. Very soon, in fact. Bedtime for Sarah Sullivan marks the first in a planned series of ten, and the intention is to release an app shortly after each title goes to print.

bedtime05bedtime01The Bedtime for Sarah Sullivan app includes pretty much everything parents would want in an interactive bedtime story: narration, highlighted text to aid with reading along, character voices (supplied by Paniagua’s own daughter as well as her husband, Julian McMahon), animations, and of course some interactive bits. A couple of mini-games have also been included. One involves flying through space collecting ingredients for baking cookies (finishing the game also reveals a recipe for “Galaxy Cookies”), while the other is about finding hidden animals and learning about nocturnal versus diurnal behavior.

What’s most intriguing about Bedtime for Sarah Sullivan is the special Coloring Activity. It’s actually based on Dr. Wayne Dyer’s theory about how what we see, do, and think about right before bed (about 30 minutes or so) can affect both our dreams and our mood when we wake up. Paniagua wanted to know, “What if you implemented this at a developmental age?”

bedtime06The idea is for children to use their imagination and draw up something right before bed, and an “Idea Generator” is also available if they have trouble thinking of something. What they draw and/or the mood it puts them in (preferably happy) should, in theory, have an impact on their dreams. Drawings can be saved from within the app to your device’s camera roll for easy sharing, too.

Bedtime for Sarah Sullivan is available on the App Store right now for $2.99 (no in-app purchases). If you’re interested in the physical book as well, you can pick it up in stores now for $13.95.

Ever had a weird dream that you’ve struggled to understand? I’m pretty sure that most people have at some point in their life. While there’s mixed views as to whether dream analysis is truly accurate, it is fun to figure out just why we dream what we dream. Morpheus Dreams is an app that aims to make it all easier.

The app offers a dream dictionary with over 400 entries, each of which pertaining to a certain item or theme in a dream. Users can then use the dream journal part of the app to track what they dream and possibilities as to why they’re dreaming such things. The interpretation tool does a fun job of figuring it all out.

Morpheus Dreams bundles in sharing and sychronization options to ensure that the user’s dream journal is always at hand and safely stored. It should all prove to be a great source for tracking one’s sub-conscious as well as offering a slice of fun for those who just want to remember their dreams for a while to come.

Morpheus Dreams is available now for both iPhone and iPad. It’s priced at $1.99.

Dreaming is a uniquely human activity. Philosophers, thinkers and psychologists have long encouraged others to use the power of their dreams to become better people, solve their problems or even predict the future. Developer AppMania brings six of these “dream books” to a new universal app, using the writings of Sigmund Freud, Gustavus Miller, Nostradamus, Hasse and Bulgarian foreteller Vanga to help modern iOS users interpret and understand their own dreaming selves.

DreamBook allows interested users to search a large database, with a purported 11,000 different dream interpretation data points. In addition, developers allow users to submit dreams that are unable to be interpreted within the app – unfound dreams will be added to future updates after being interpreted.

The app includes Facebook and Twitter integration, for those inclined to share their innermost dreaming selves, as well as Retina Display graphics and support for iOS 3.1 through 4.3.

DreamBook is live in the App Store and available now for the low price of $0.99.

Dreams & Lotto claims that you can "Write in your dream and the corresponding numbers will appear," but instead gives you a small list of words to choose from. You search for words and select them, which then adds numbers that correspond to the words to your "My lucky numbers" list. You can e-mail this list to others. And that's about it.
