  1. Need vibrations Apple Watch

    it is much muy easier and quiet to wake up with vibrations in most of the times for not disturbing others. it’s even more comestible and efficient most of the times i guess. so i suggest a variety of different options of vibrations, in my preference for the apple watch. with an option that make you sure that there will be no sounds that may disturb.

      Hello! Vibrations on the Apple Watch as an alarm are not possible at the moment due to restrictions imposed by watchOS. There are ways to achieve this indirectly but we have to weigh in the advantages and disadvantages such as the increase of battery consumption. Either way, we will keep you up to date with our progress.

      P.S.
      Please note that is a discussion forum about things we can do to improve Pillow so any comments that suggest using other apps or services are not helpful to this conversation and will be deleted.

    • Bed time Siri

      Add ability to say good night Siri from Apple Watch to automatically start sleep session and I’m up to stop.

        Siri integration is something that we are already planning for an upcoming version of Pillow. Thank you for your support.

      • Manually record I am awake

        Obviously the only time I know if the app is accurately recording what stage of sleep I am in, is when I am awake. During this time I often check my watch and the next morning find that the times that I checked my watch were not recorded as awake! Can you add the ability for the app to recognise a manual input to supplement the A.I. and accurately record when I am awake. This could be a something like simple double click to avoid error.

        • 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.

          • Please use buttons instead of swiping to open analysis reports

            Please make it more user friendly by adding visible buttons to Pillow App instead of swiping to open/review the App associated analysis reports. Due to sensitivity of iPhone touch, it appears to open other hiding/shortcuts programs needing multiple swipes to open Pillow App report menu. Thanks!

              We are working on a major redesign that is going to address this issue as you describe. Thank you for your patience.

            • Agree/disagree with quality %

              The new sleep AI is great and is teaching the app how I sleep, which as an active/mobile sleeper is fantastic. My request, although similar, is to add that to the quality percentage. Frequently I will wake up and feel amazing and have had a great nights sleep but when I look at pillow it reports my quality as 34% (randomly using that number). When I look at the duration of stages it will have nearly zero time recorded in REM sleep which is apparently resulting in the AI thinking I did not sleep well. Maybe your algorithm is giving…

              • Dream information

                There NEEDS to be more information to put in upon waking up. Like a dream journal and seeing if my vivid dreams have any connection with stuff the night before like alcohol intake and how a bad dream affects my wake up mood. Can rate dreams good to nightmarish and see them on a graph. I forget my dreams pretty quick but get annoyed because they really have an impact on what the data is telling me (like why I’m saying weird stuff in my sleep)

                • 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".

                      • Ability to restart sleep sounds if woken

                        I rely on the rain sounds to fall asleep, so if I wake up in the middle of the night and am having difficulty going back to sleep, it’s really annoying that I have to turn off my alarm and restart it to get my rain sounds. There should be a simple button to “restart” a session without actually interrupting it.

                            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?

                            • exclude TV noise from audio

                              It would be nice if pillow could recognize a continuous amount of chatter that would indicate TV and not record a bunch of clips for while TV is on. Then, when the more or less continuous noise ceases (if the user has set a sleep timer or something), it can start picking noise up again.

                                • 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.

                                  So if the app recorded that you were awake from 2:15am to 2:50am, but you were asleep, you can fix that error. Likewise, if the app thought you were asleep but you got up to go to the bathroom at 3:30am for 5 minutes, you can fix that too.

                                  But…

                                    I've written about this on this On the app review & Twitter conversation before the purchase; I was told that "Notes" provided this feature but it Does Not. I've now bought an app based on information that is Not Accurate.

                                    • Require Picture to be Taken to Disable Alarm/Allow Other Apps to be used Simultaneously

                                      I have an alarm app that allows me to take pictures to disable the alarm (using a picture to disable an alarm forces me to get out of bed).
                                      Before the update, I was able to use this app and simultaneously use Pillow. However, now, I can’t use both apps at the same time (the sound for my alarm app is disabled and Pillow reads that I was awake all night).

                                      • Add a button to rotate the screen on the sleep data page

                                        For those of us that use orientation lock it's a hassle to view the extra data by rotating the screen as we have to swipe up, turn orientation lock off, swipe down then rotate the device and repeat when we are finished. Could you add a button on screen that will rotate the screen to landscape view and rotate back to portrait once pressed again?

                                        • Allow audible weather alerts

                                          Allow weather apps like the weather channel to send audible notifications, many people rely on their phones for severe weather and tornado warnings to wake them so they can seek shelter. The “government warning” is not always used so having another source of warning is a must!! Not having these alerts come through is dangerous!!!
