  1. Please enable visual soundwave for each recording

    If you do not know what I mean, please refer to "Sleep as Android"
    Most of time, the recording is useless, I would have to listen the all recordings only to to find whether I spoke while sleeping. But if each recording has a visual sound wave, I can just listen to these with obvious wave, which could same so much time for me.

    • Use Own Music for Sleep-aid

      Apple Music offers a Great selection of sleep and relaxing music. It would be nice to choose from the library.

      • Smart Wake up on the Apple Watch

        Jawbone, Fitbit, etc. all have smart wake up technology. This may be the most important feature of a sleep monitoring app. The smart wake up does not work with the Apple Watch. Please work on this and you will have the BEST app!

          Smart wake up relies on real-time data processing that can only be done on the iPhone at the moment, since third-party Apple Watch apps cannot run continuously in the background. In that regard, we don’t have much data to work with compared to sleep tracking with the iPhone. However we are working an big update to that will also improve Smart Wakeup on the Apple Watch as well. Stay tuned!

        • Support Apple HomeKit

          Start scenario “good night” when you launch Pillow, for example etc.

              This is part of a bigger update that is in the works. We really want to make it easier to access a specific date. Thank you so much for your patience.

            • Pausing the app

              Occasionally I wake early and read for half an hour or even a couple of hours then fall back asleep for a few. I would like to be able to pause the app or re-start it like some people have suggested...and have the still considered one sleep session if possible.

                We’re working on feature that will let you tell Pillow “I’m awake” so that it will properly register this type of activity as well.

              • Edit Sleep notes

                Should be possible to edit sleep notes and move them up and down in the list.

                • Average time asleep

                  Currently it appears that nap time is considered as a separate sleep day for averaging. It then skews the amount of sleep per day. It should either be added to the night before numbers or excluded outright. If I take only my night data and calculate an average I'm at more than 5 hrs/night but with naps the at show just over 3hrs

                    This is a really big one for me, the Sleep Cycle app does it and it shouldn't be too hard to implement! :)

                      Please allow for reminders set by the user, not just the one reminder for the night of "best sleep quality". Especially because you don't specify what hindered or helped the quality. Allow for more than one and customizable times.

                      • Auto-Stop feature

                        How about having an option to automatically stop tracking when the app notices a person is up and about. Presumably the gyroscopic patterns made when a person is awake and walking about - certainly if they take the Watch off, can trigger the tracking cycle to end?

                        This could be made an option that can be toggled on or off - in case there are sleepwalkers who would like to know when they were walking about!

                        Thanks.

                          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.

                        • Ability to edit data...

                          I can edit in health but it doesn't register in app and app has no edit

                          • Improve general user interactions

                            Selecting a different mode is not in a great location. Often when swiping up, control centre is inadvertently activated. There is plenty of room at the bottom of the home screen to place a small icon for naps, and perhaps an icon for graphs, which would replace the swipe left, which often brings the calendar over.

                            When selecting a sleep mode, rather than having to scroll through each mode, a pop up menu would be much easier.

                            • Change y axis values for comparing sleep quality to weight

                              Since the y axis starts at 0 the fluctuations in weight are not noticeable even though I've gone down 10 lbs in the past 2 weeks.

                                    • Add Sleep Notes on Apple Watch

                                      As much as I love your app and the improvements you're making to it, I wish that I could add sleep notes directly on the Apple Watch. Since I don't care as much about the microphone and alarm features, this is the only thing preventing me from being able to use my Apple Watch completely independently from my iPhone for sleep tracking. I like sleep notes because they give an even better understanding of my sleeping habits, so I hope this feature is added soon. Thanks for making such a great app!

                                        You can delete and alter the text in a note entry, but you can't reorder them! Please add this feature so that users can prioritize and organize their notes :)

                                          Please add an edit option to the sleep records. Have left my watch running by accident several times and the only way sort this days are to delete them from my records. Would be nice to be able to end the end time at least.
