  1. Could the night screen on the phone show a dim, large clock as an option?

    I use the app every night. I'd rather also use the phone screen as a night time dim clock with big numbers so I don't need glasses. As an example, something like the app "Nite Time" - and even when there is no alarm set. Keep up the great work on this app, I'm a fan.

    • Sync with MyFitnessPal

      Hi, would love to see how diet affects sleep (not everything syncs through apple health)

      • 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

          • Manual sleep log

            It's a good app but the biggest con is that you can't manually log sleep sessions.
            Sometimes I forget to start the app before I fall asleep, and I often stop it in the morning and then fall asleep again.

            I manually log my sleep quality as Sleep Notes. I don't need a graph to show me how I slept. It's all the other factors and statistics that are interesting to me.

              Thank you for your feedback. A manual log is beyond the scope of Pillow but we are working on a completely automatic mode that will detect when you fall asleep and when you wake up. In addition to that, you will be able to edit any detected sessions.

            • 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.

              • Fade sleep aid for non-stop

                If the Allen aid is on non-stop, it seems to stop abruptly just before the alarm starts. It would be nice to have:

                1. Play sleep aid non stop,
                2. Alarm on 30 min window,
                3. Sleep aid fade to alarm when time is right

                Thanks!

                • Export sleep notes

                  In the export you have the wake up mood but don't have the notes.

                  Please can they be added

                  I need this as sleep applications seem to be the only ones that allow notes and I ned to add them to other graphs like weight

                  • 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).

                            • Improve Data Summary so that it is useful

                              Current data summary is very awkwardly shown. I find myself moving from screen to screen and I feel like I am zoomed in visually and even all the specific data I want is on different screens so I have to swipe back and forth to get there.

                              Here’s what I want as a daily summary:
                              Automatic default to day view of last night with following information:

                              1) visual graph- check
                              2) in bed- xx:xx to xx:xx (missing)
                              3) time in bed- x hrs and x minutes
                              4) time asleep- check
                              3) quality of sleep- % or other metric and add…

                                Thank you for your feedback. We’re working on a major redesign of Pillow that will improve on the way the daily sleep analysis appears.

                              • QR Code Alarm Deactivation

                                Add the ability to deactivate alarms by scanning a specified QR Code or Barcode. At the moment I have to use Alarmy along side pillow and would be great if this feature was added.

                                      Others have stated they forget to disable it in the morning. I forget to turn it on when I am in bed.

                                        Pillow’s sleep analysis algorithm relies in part on motion data acquired by the Apple Watch. The only way to retrieve those data is to explicitly start/stop a session. Also, the microphone, speaker and haptic feedback on the Apple Watch cannot be used by third-party apps that run in the background, like Pillow due to watchOS limitations so we must use iPhone’s. All the above reasons force us to require that Pillow is open on the iPhone and then press Start on Pillow on the Apple Watch. Hopefully, those restrictions will be lifted in future updates of watchOS, and then we will be more than happy to simplify.

                                        That said, we are also working on a completely automatic mode but we have to make sure it doesn’t sacrifice any of the reliability and accuracy of the sleep analysis.

                                        I've got migraine. I use mood to note if I am ill or not. I really need to compare easily my night to my mood
