keep your heroku dyno up

I have many apps that use single dyno. The problem with such apps is, that after 1h of inactivity heroku puts them to sleep, and waking up process takes from 5 to 30 seconds depending on your slug size. To avoid your first visitor wait for heroku to spin up your dyno I use uptimerobot.com that pings specified url every 5 minutes.
