  1. 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'.

    • Smarter Naps

      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.

      • Automatic sleep tracking every night!

        There is a new app in the store called Auto Sleep that automatically tracks your sleep every night, even if you forget to open the app before you fall asleep!

        It uses the motion sensors on the watch, so even if you fell asleep before you remembered to start the app, when you wake up in the morning and open the app, it will still upload your movement data from the night and give you an analysis.

        So the only time you have to remember to open the app before you fall asleep is if you want the sound recording…

          We are currently exploring ways to perform automatic sleep detection and tracking along with a new way to edit sessions. We must make sure that Pillow sleep analysis algorithm remains accurate and reliable so we can’t give an ETA yet.

        • 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.

          • Smart Wake up on the Apple Watch

            Jawbone, Fitbit, etc. all have smart wake up technology. This may be the most important feature of a sleep monitoring app. The smart wake up does not work with the Apple Watch. Please work on this and you will have the BEST app!

              Smart wake up relies on real-time data processing that can only be done on the iPhone at the moment, since third-party Apple Watch apps cannot run continuously in the background. In that regard, we don’t have much data to work with compared to sleep tracking with the iPhone. However we are working an big update to that will also improve Smart Wakeup on the Apple Watch as well. Stay tuned!

            • Amplify the audio playback

              Even with my phone volume turned up to the maximum, I cannot hear the noise it's apparently recording, other than the faint noise from my ceiling fan on low speed.

              • 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.

                    This is currently not possible in iOS/watchOS. Siri commands work in certain use cases, also called “domains.” Apple is planning to add more domains in the future and hopefully one of them will include sleep as well.

                  • Along with % show the hours of sleep spent

                    While % looks good. Since u already have the numbers please put in the hours please. For some hours look better than %.

                        This is part of a bigger update that is in the works. We really want to make it easier to access a specific date. Thank you so much for your patience.

                      • Get sleep time

                        Make a setting so that it will wake you up after a certain number of sleep hours. NOT counting the time registered as awake.

                        • Nightstand Mode

                          In my old sleeping app, Sleep Cycle (Northcube AB), all you had to do was place your device on the furniture next to your bed and it would analyze the sounds and movements solely through the microphone. Better yet, they had a feature where you tapped the furniture twice and it would snooze. I would LOVE to see something like this, for the people that don't like sleeping with their phones directly next to them.

                            Occasionally I wake early and read for half an hour or even a couple of hours then fall back asleep for a few. I would like to be able to pause the app or re-start it like some people have suggested...and have the still considered one sleep session if possible.

                              We’re working on feature that will let you tell Pillow “I’m awake” so that it will properly register this type of activity as well.

                            • Wake-up mood graph

                              The morning wake mood functionality is great, but it displays on the graphs as the date you went to sleep, not on the date you woke up and reported your mood.

                                When I wake up in the middle of the night I'm extremely sensitive to sounds and it takes me a while to go back to sleep. If there was an option for restarting the sleep sounds then it would really help me get a better night's rest.

                                  I'll sometimes wake up but forget to hit the stop/analyze function & it'll show that I've slept for 12 hrs with 6 of those hours awake, throwing off all stats. If we could edit/delete the excess end time showing awareness, then all stats would be more accurate.

                                  • Don't require me to say when I am going to sleep.

                                    When I go to bed I am often very wound up. I read or watch ASMR videos to fall asleep. I need an app to notice when I fall asleep and not require me to tell it since I very rarely am able to fall asleep when I decide to.

                                      Perhaps add sound of being in a car. You know Those smooth journeys on the motorway at night. Please add this!

                                      • Wake me up on sunrise

                                        Is it possible that the Pillow app wakes me up on sunrise of the day? The sunrise time can be obtained from some internet services based on local time zone.

                                        • Meditative state only option, etc.

                                          I would love Pillow to have the capability of a Meditative state only function. I have now elected to use sleep data from another device, but continue to use Pillow before sleep.

                                          It would also be fantastic if Pillow could include the option to close the app after the Meditative session. That way it would allow functionality of my other preferred alarm.

                                          Additionally, more Meditative sounds would be a nice addition. (Specifically my personal preference is nature sounds; Bullfrogs and Katydids please!
