Surprisingly enough there is now an app (application) that helps determine whether you have sleep apnea or not.
From the company RESMed “today released the RESMed Sleep Assessment app, a novel new app for iPhone that lets users record themselves during sleep.

That is really cool! You can record yourself while sleeping by using the software on your phone. I don’t know if this works for everybody with sleep apnea but just the fact that some company has come out with such a thing is amazing.
