  1. Play my own music or audio to sleep too

    Whenever I attempt to use my own audio through the music app it drops the volume so low it's barely audible even if you use the hardware buttons the volume control thinks it's playing at full volume! Would be great if this worked!

      The upcoming version of Pillow will introduce a new way to handle audio streams so that audio from other apps won’t be silenced.

    • Sleep aid

      There should be more sounds in sleep aid to fall asleep to.

        We’re planning a big sleep aid update that’s coming on an upcoming update. This will introduce new sleep aid sounds, and the ability to select a sleep aid sound from iTunes.

      • Track steps at night

        I wake up frequently and often go to the bathroom. The app isn't catching all the wake ups. I wish there was a way to set the sensitivity to capture steps to show you have woken up as it would be more accurate then. It helps me to figure out why I'm so tired in the morning. Having had a brain injury tracking my sleep or amount of wake ups really helps to figure out how well I slept. For example I know I woke up 5 times last night and the app said I only woke up 2 times.…

        • Tap a block of time to reveal its duration in the daily report

          Please add a feature so we could just tap a time block on the graph from the daily report and have it display the time duration of that block.
          Thanks!

          • Turn sleep aid on/off when activated

            Having a button to switch the sleep aid on and off after you have already initiated your alarm/sleep cycle recording. Say you fall asleep, but wake up in the middle of the night and want the sleep aid to help you fall back asleep. Or in many of my own cases. Sleep aid shuts off before I am fully asleep and I would like the sound to start again to help me fall asleep without exiting the initiated recording.

            Or maybe you have a sleep aid set, but you feel that perhaps silence will be better and you want to…

                Nap recording and analysis is already included in Pillow. Part of a major update that we are working on will include a way to factor naps and their data in to detailed sleep statistics.

                  Hello,
                  We’re working on ways to bring a free trial of all of Pillow’s features so that you can experience the full potential of Pillow before deciding to upgrade.

                  We would deeply appreciate if you could spend a few minutes to take a short survey we have prepared. It will help us learn more about how you view this and other features that we are considering for the future of Pillow on the following link:

                  Thank you!

                • "Favoriting" audio clips

                  A way to "favorite" or star certain audio clips and have them group together in one spot would be nice. Sometimes I like to show other people a recording of me sleep talking but it's impossible to tell which night and which clip has sleep talking without listening to them all again.

                    • Add detailed infos on sleep charts

                      Hi guys!

                      When we look at the different charts we never know the exact number (percentage, hours of sleep, etc) maybe above each column we could have the exact number written OR if we click on the arrow then the number would show of. Cause right now, these charts are really not interesting for me. It's like they don't give any detailed informations and justed average

                      • Move the mode switched for the iPhone X

                        Hey, with the iPhone X having the mode switcher is a pain at the bottom as I keep swiping back home or end up swiping between apps. Any chance this could be place elsewhere?

                          • 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.

                            • 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 %.

                              • 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

                                • 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.

                                        • Allow Sounds from 3rd Party Apps

                                          I would like to be able to use music or sounds from apps other than my iTunes library.

                                            The upcoming update of Pillow will allow sound from other apps to play while Pillow runs so you can listen to your favourite playlist and then turn on Pillow to start your session without interrupting the sound.
