  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.

    • 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)

              • 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!

                  • 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

                    • Complication on Apple Watch

                      When in a sleep session, should display time asleep. I go to bed at different times, and when I wake - in the night, or early AM - I would like to see how much I have slept.

                        The complication in the upcoming version of Pillow will display the amount of time since the sleep session started.

                      • 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!

                          • Continuous loop for sleep aid

                            I am a super light sleeper and if I have audio continuously playing through the night, I can sleep longer - without that, say if one of my kids gets up in the middle of the night to go potty, I wake up from hearing it. Please add a feature to allow us to choose sleep aid to stop when sleep is detected or to play continuously until the alarm sounds.

                              • 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…

                                • "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.

                                        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!

                                        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.

                                          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
