  1. Detect when you get up

    I would like the app to show you on the graph when you get out of bed during the night

        Hello,
        Thank for your feedback. Currently is impossible to start an alarm or listen to audio recordings for an app that stays in the background for multiple hours, as it is the case for Pillow. That is why we alarms and sound recordings require iPhone connectivity. Hopefully upcoming versions of watchOS or the Apple Watch will allow such functionality and we’ll be more than happy to make this possible!

      • Make it so the app doesn't think you're asleep when using the phone.

        This evening, I set pillow and then surfed the Internet for a bit. Eventually I got tired and went to sleep. Upon waking, I looked at my sleep pattern. The app said that I fell asleep minutes after setting the timer. I had actually been on the phone for over an hour before sleeping. I have lost A LOT of faith in the validity of the app. Please fix.

          • Allow other background audio apps to play in the background

            I like to use other apps that play continuous audio throughout the night to help me fall asleep and stay asleep. The Pillow app kills the volume of other background noise apps when sleep is activated and that drives me nuts!
            Please fix this.

            • Better Setup For Daytime Sleeper

              Optimize this for us night shift folks that sleep during the day. The app doesn't properly plot data for daytime sleeping. I go to sleep and wake up in the same day. Night shift folks struggle the most with getting solid rest since we are going against the natural sleep patterns. Help us out.

              • Please improve the quality of recored sound

                The Sleep recording is a great feature.
                but, the quality of recorded sound is pretty poor.
                So please, let us set up the different quality of sound to record.

                • Calendar sync

                  I have a lot of meetings. It would have been awesome, if the app could see my calendar and notify me [set time] before I need to go to sleep to achieve my sleep goal. As an addition it might already pre set alarm time, based on the time of the meeting (knowing the location, tragic info from the maps and some extra pre-set time that it takes me to get ready).

                    I want to set the alarm sound. I think that the sound is loud sound.

                      • Bluetooth issues

                        When the alarm his off, it sounds on my Bluetooth connected speakers instead than in my phone as I would like it to... Is there a way to do this without disabling Bluetooth ( which will not allow me to use the Apple watch)?

                        I've woken up the entire neighborhood several times now :)

                        • Badges

                          Hi,

                          I think you have a great and colorful app with neat design, the stats that you are providing are sufficient enough but they could be more interesting. I specially like the stats you providing about best sleeping night. I think if you could extend these kind of information to "best night of week", "best Monday's sleep", etc... this will all so much value to your app. Combining this with Badges will make it even more great. It also encourages your users to use the app more often.

                          PS: In my opinion, Nike+ Fuel has done a great job implementing…

                          • Auto start

                            You must definitely include an option of auto-starting the full cycle sleep when I open the app during night time.

                            For instance , if I open the app at 12am ( obviously I wanted to record my sleep )
                            So the I request you to include an option of auto starting the app in full cycle when I open the app at night time.

                                • Minor changes needed

                                  I have been using the Apple Watch for sleep cycle tracking for a few weeks now after having used the phone app for a few weeks as well. The watch app does not seem to wake me up between cycles, even though it tracks them (the phone app wakes me up when the cats jump on the bed or my sleep mate tosses and turns). Also, starting the app is very clunky. I wear the watch on the outside of my wrist and end up having to hold the phone with my palm on the screen of my phone to…

                                    Thank you for your feedback. The we’d love to reduce the steps required to start a session but it’s currently impossible due to the way the Apple Watch connects to the iPhone. Hopefully upcoming updates of the watchOS will allow us to simplify.

                                    • Don't allow naps to continue sleep cycles

                                      It's my second day/night using Pillow. This morning I tried to add a nap (just for fun) and I continued my overnight session. When I cancelled the nap it messed up my overnight session somehow, making the quality higher (I think it turned it into a nap internally). It seems like one wouldn't want to "continue" between different types of sleep, as they aren't really compatible.

                                      • Louder alarms

                                        I know the idea is to wake up feeling refreshed and not jolted out of sleep. Me and a friend have bin trying it and sometimes we will sleep threw the mellow and dull alarms. Not saying change anything but add new louder alarms

                                          Hi,

                                          I think it would be good if there was a sharing feature in place which generate a card like image consists of the sleep chart and some stats. That would be great for sharing the info on Twitter or Facebook for instance or other apps like DayOne.

                                          Cheers,
                                          Amir
