  1. Easy deletion of recordings

    It's very annoying to delete each recording separately. I would like to mark those recordings I want to keep. And unmarked recordings will be deleted by pressing "Delete unmarked recordings".

    Thank you.

    • Pillow and international travel / timezones

      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!

      • Face up screen dimming

        I use an iPhone X on a wireless charger and an Apple Watch to track my movement. The screen is too bright to leave face up in a dark room. I’m also worried about screen burn-in. It would be nice if the screen dimmed when the sleep tracking starts.

          Hello! The upcoming update of Pillow will have the option to dim the screen completely when placed on a wireless charger.

          • Sound download

            I know at one point I was able to email a specific audio sound, it would be nice to be able to text audio easily.

              • Return to previous page after rotating device

                For example, If I'm listening to audio recorded on a certain day and accidentally rotate the device to horizontal, when I return the device to vertical it defaults to the sleep tab of the most recently recorded sleep. It would be great if I could return the device to vertical and be back on the page I was on, at the same point of the page. Thanks so much

                • Share sounds to other apps

                  Please make the sound file can be shared directly to apps other than just Mail, for example: Gmail app, Message app.

                  • Sleep aid restart if woken up

                    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.

                        • Sleep time in minutes instead of fractions

                          Seeing something like "7.7 hours" makes no sense to me. We count time in minutes, quarters and halves, I'd much rather see the exact time I intend to sleep through the night. Trying to figure out 7/10 times 60 is unnecessarily cumbersome.

                                I use the Calm app and would like to not have to activate pillow after my night time meditations. But I'm unable to hear the meditation story when pillow is on because the volume goes so low. Don't allow the pillow app to change the volume of other apps. Thank you!

                                  Hello, thank you for your feedback. The upcoming update of Pillow will handle audio from apps in a new way so it is not silenced.

                                • More consistent data sync from watch to phone

                                  My use case is possibly unusual, I have 2 apple watches - but this allows me to use your app at night as well as having a fully charged watch in the morning.

                                  I wear my original apple watch overnight. In the morning I get up, end my sleep recording, wait for the analysis and the app of the phone to suggest it has sync'd the data. I then force press the watch app and force a manual resync of the data to phone for extra confidence. I then immediately take off my original watch and put a series 2…

                                    The upcoming version of Pillow will introduce a completely re-written apple watch that will dramatically improve the reliability of data syncing as well as the simplicity of use. That said, we are still limited by the way the syncing framework currently works on watchOS so we will keep monitoring any progress and incorporate any improvements as they become available.

                                  • Speaker volume unaffected

                                    When I turn the app on to start recording my sleep, it quiets anything playing off my speakers. (This is without me asking for my night noises to be recorded, I only use the sleep tracker and alarm function.) The volume displays at the same volume but plays barely audible. Most nights I need music or a podcast to be able to fall asleep because other wise I can't "turn off". I really love this app and would probably start paying for it if this was fixed, but this is a major problem for me. Thank you.

                                      I would like to see cutting beginning and the end.

                                      I go to sleep in front of TV and first 15-20 is not accurate, but it influence data. On the end I wake up and think about something. Sometimes I just sleep back during. Or forget to turn the app off.

                                        Thank you for feedback. The ability to edit the duration of the sleep session is on our roadmap for future versions of Pillow

                                      • Display how much time each sleep phase

                                        It would be awesome to be able to see how much time you spent in each sleep phase

                                        • Upload additional sleep aids

                                          The list of sleep aids is very limited even after paying for the advanced version. Being able to upload additional tracks or play from another source would be helpful.

                                            Hello, thank you for your feedback. The upcoming update of Pillow will handle audio from apps in a new way so it is not silenced. In that way you can use playlists from other apps as a sleep aid. We are also planning to add more sleep aid sounds.
