      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.

    • Work with other sleep aid apps

      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.

      • 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.

        • Crop-cut beggining, end

          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

          • 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.

            • Alternate data in complication

              Rather than optimal sleep timer during the day, I would love the option to display the duration of the last sleep session and perhaps percentage or mood.

                Thank you for your feedback! As requested, in the upcoming version of Pillow the complication will display the time elapse for the current sleep session.

              • Allow Sleep Aid to last longer

                The sleep aid doesn't last long enough. Majority of the time I'm still up when it goes off. That's annoying. Can you make it last longer ? Can you make it a option of how long it lasts ? I mean we did have to pay for it so it should have a longer lasting time.

                • Watch complication with length of sleep

                  Currently the watch complication shows the ideal time to sleep and is a timer during the day for that. Which makes no sense to me. During the day I don't have the watch face with pillow on it because I'm not sleeping.

                  A much more useful use of that real estate is to show me in the complication the length of the current sleep session.

                  And the smaller complication should be just the pillow app icon. No timer or counter.

                    The upcoming version of Pillow will replace the functionality of the complication to display the length of the current sleep session.

                    • Sleep sounds.

                      Add a way for us to adjust the volume for the sleep sounds and wake up alarm separately. I don't want my sleep sounds to be blaring just so the alarm can wake me up.

                        The upcoming version of Pillow will include the option to manually set the volume of the alarm sound. The volume of the sleep aid can always be adjusted by the native controls of the iPhone/iPad (side buttons or control center)

                      • Sleep aid noise play all night or at least longer

                        I sleep better with the sounds of rain or lapping water. I don't wake as much. But I am not even asleep when the sleep aid turns off

                        • Lease graph sleep time

                          You have graphs that are labeled "Sleep Time" but those labels are in error. Everywhere it says Sleep Time it is actually showing Time in Bed. I want to see how long I am actually sleeping (subtract Awake Time).

                          • Output Alarm (song) to Bluetooth / AirPlay Speaker

                            Waking up to your favorite tunes full blast is the best thing ever ! The app would need to somehow output a silent sound to the speaker so the bluetooth connection doesn't drop. Awesome UI btw!

                            • Include Daily Weather

                              It would be useful to see how daily weather influence sleep efficiency.

                              • Moon Insight

                                It would be nice to have a insight when there is a new moon, full moon, and you can see when you sleep the best under the moon.

                                • Choice of the aid sound

                                  I'd like to choose my own melody for aid use (I would set an album of Mozart or something of Daniel Hope)
                                  It's more convenient and better for health and deeper relax

                                  • Time until alarm in hh:mm format

                                    Currently it describes the time left until the alarm with a decimal number (e.g. 8.7h), but I think it might be more intuitive just to display it as 8:45.
