I have a Samsung Galaxy S Relay cellphone running Android 4.1.2.
For quite a while, I've been using SleepBot to keep track of my sleep.
What is SleepBot?
SleepBot is an app which offers, among other features, "sleep tracking". It uses my phone's mic and accelerometer to keep track of noise and movement while I sleep. I can then wake up, look at the graphs, and estimate how much time I actually spent sleeping (instead of just tossing and turning).
The app also includes a "sleep debt" calculation feature, although researchers disagree regarding whether or not the concept of sleep debt describes a measurable phenomenon.
The app is still freeware and still downloadable from the Google Play store. But the app's product manager has made it known that development has ceased. No features will ever be added, and no bugs will ever be fixed.

What I'd like
I'm looking for an app which, like SleepBot, can:
- Keep track of motion, and
- Keep track of sound levels.
Some choices I've looked into already
Here are some apps I think I might not choose:
Not SleepBot, because it's unmaintained and buggier than I'd like.
Probably not Azumio Sleep Time. On other OSes, things might be different, but on Android, it's unclear to me whether or not it can monitor sound levels. Plus: The free version is popular but unmaintained. It appears that the paid version is still maintained but is not very popular.
And maybe not Sleep as Android. It isn't quite free. The full free-trial period lasts only two weeks; after the two-week period ends, its sleep-tracking functionality will only work for three nights a week unless you buy an unlock code. I'd rather choose a free app.
Could you please suggest something which is either still-maintained (so that I can send in bug reports) or else mostly bug-free?
P.S. This question still could use some more copyediting. If you could edit and improve it, or even if you could simply comment, that would be much appreciated.
