  1. Edit data

    I’ve used a couple of apps where I can edit sleep/wake times when I’ve forgotten to press wake up - rather than having 15+hours of awake data ruining my sleep log, I can crop the awake time away. Would be great to have that feature here too.

    • Interpret the data for us

      There is lots of good data.. however, is the % I'm awake good? Bad? To me, this is like saying you have 42 bugs in your software... is it good? Bad? Can the app use big data or AI to interpret the data and give more actionable or interpreted feedback?

      • Add snore to graph.

        Add snore to graph. Show on graph the time span I am listening to. Click on graph selects audio recording that corresponds that time

        • Auto sleep/wake detection with auto stop/start.

          Automatic session stop when you get out of bed and start walking around for a period of time (longer than I takes to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night), so if you forget to stop a session it doesn't keep recording for hours, adding wake time to your sleep stats. Also, if you stop a session in the morning, then fall back asleep, it would be great if Pillow could detect this and resume sleep recording.

            Fully automatic sleep detection and tracking using the Apple Watch or any other wearable that provides heart rate data and steps along with other metrics, is on our roadmap for the near future. We also add the ability to edit and merge sleep sessions so that will handle the use cases you mention :)

          • Out of bed functionality?

            Often, when I can't sleep, I get up out of bed. This unfortunately causes the app to register this as R.E.M. sleep since there are no sounds. It would be really cool to have an "out of bed" button that either keeps it as 'awake' or even have another band above wake for 'out of bed'.

              We working on a major update that will introduce an improved and much more accurate way to detect and analyse sleep, including the ability to manually set “Awake” periods during the night.

              • Track where you sleep - in Hotels or at Friends

                Sleeping is different in Hotels/Places, especially if one travels a lot. It will be interesting to know how sleep varies in different Places. Use the GPS to detect if you sleep at home. If not, offer a list of nearby Hotels or other custom places to select from. Then offer analysis for every place where you might sleep.

                • Ability to correct errors

                  At least once or twice a week the sleep graph shows that I was awake in the middle of the night for 30-60 minutes or more, when I was not.

                  I may have tossed and turned a few times, but I was not awake, and certainly not for an hour.

                  Other sleep apps like AutoSleep have an edit screen with the entire night’s data broken out into 5-10 minute increments, and you can select to edit what the app thought was happening at that time.

                  So if the app recorded that you were awake from 2:15am to 2:50am, but you…

                  • Details of sleeping time

                    I would like to know sleeping “time”, but not percent.
                    For example, “REM 40m”, “Deep sleep 1h” and so on, not “REM 10%”, “Deep sleep 27%”.
                    Because I would like to know if I could keep a constant deep sleeping "time".

                    • Please enable visual soundwave for each recording

                      If you do not know what I mean, please refer to "Sleep as Android"
                      Most of time, the recording is useless, I would have to listen the all recordings only to to find whether I spoke while sleeping. But if each recording has a visual sound wave, I can just listen to these with obvious wave, which could same so much time for me.

                      • Use machine learning to give advice based on tags

                        Tagging each session with "drank wine", "ate late", "have had a nap", "took vitamin D" etc. is of no use if one cannot process the data. Most of us can't and would love the app to do that for us.

                        It could look like this: "When using tag x you seem to sleep 34 minute shorter than you normal Wednesday."

                        "When using tag z and y you increase the quality of sleep, but not when you use each tag by themselves."

                            As someone who travels regularly internationally, I would like to see improvements in terms of timezones within the app. If the app could provide data on how the jet-lag affects us all the better!

                                  With iPhone 8, 8+, and X all having wireless charging capabilities, I suggest that the phone would turn off the screen when placed screen up on a charging pad while in a sleep session just like it does when placed down and plugged in. This would make charging using a wireless charging mat overnight possible which would have the potential of greatly increasing the lifespan of the battery.

                                      I think that the nap setting should be improved by starting the nap timer once the app detects the person has fallen asleep. It takes people a while to fall asleep and if it takes 10 minutes to fall asleep, you would be getting 10 minutes for your nap, not the full 20. If this tweak is applied, the full nap would be achieved. I believe it would benefit everyone.

                                      • Complete Dark Mode for OLED Display

                                        For the iPhone X, it will be having an OLED display where you can make the black pixels be completely turned off.

                                        Can you make a theme that’s total black except the controls and time for when you activate the sleep alarm? It would be great as a nightstand clock and would reduce battery usage.
