  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.

    • 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

        • 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'.

            We working on a major update that will introduce an improved and much more accurate way to detect and analyse sleep, including the ability to manually set “Awake” periods during the night.

              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:

              https://neybox.typeform.com/to/nnsAkv

              Thank you!

            • Interpret the data for us

              There is lots of good data.. however, is the % I'm awake good? Bad? To me, this is like saying you have 42 bugs in your software... is it good? Bad? Can the app use big data or AI to interpret the data and give more actionable or interpreted feedback?

              • 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.

                • Support for iOS 12 Shortcuts

                  Would love to be able to create a shortcut that started sleep tracking with predefined settings then did other things like turned off all the lights and enabled DND.

                      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.

                    • Track where you sleep - in Hotels or at Friends

                      Sleeping is different in Hotels/Places, especially if one travels a lot. It will be interesting to know how sleep varies in different Places. Use the GPS to detect if you sleep at home. If not, offer a list of nearby Hotels or other custom places to select from. Then offer analysis for every place where you might sleep.

                      • Please use buttons instead of swiping to open analysis reports

                        Please make it more user friendly by adding visible buttons to Pillow App instead of swiping to open/review the App associated analysis reports. Due to sensitivity of iPhone touch, it appears to open other hiding/shortcuts programs needing multiple swipes to open Pillow App report menu. 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…

                                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

                                    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!

                                      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.…

                                      • 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.

                                          It would be great if Pillow can turn on/off the lights when wakes/sleeps, or enters certain scenes.
