  1. Work with other sleep aid apps

    I use the Calm app and would like to not have to activate pillow after my night time meditations. But I'm unable to hear the meditation story when pillow is on because the volume goes so low. Don't allow the pillow app to change the volume of other apps. Thank you!

      Hello, thank you for your feedback. The upcoming update of Pillow will handle audio from apps in a new way so it is not silenced.

    • 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.

        Alarm sounds, sleep aid, all the sounds let it go through Bluetooth speakers

        • 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!

          • Sleep aid

            There should be more sounds in sleep aid to fall asleep to.

              We’re planning a big sleep aid update that’s coming on an upcoming update. This will introduce new sleep aid sounds, and the ability to select a sleep aid sound from iTunes.

            • Speaker volume unaffected

              When I turn the app on to start recording my sleep, it quiets anything playing off my speakers. (This is without me asking for my night noises to be recorded, I only use the sleep tracker and alarm function.) The volume displays at the same volume but plays barely audible. Most nights I need music or a podcast to be able to fall asleep because other wise I can't "turn off". I really love this app and would probably start paying for it if this was fixed, but this is a major problem for me. Thank you.

              • Crop-cut beggining, end

                I would like to see cutting beginning and the end.

                I go to sleep in front of TV and first 15-20 is not accurate, but it influence data. On the end I wake up and think about something. Sometimes I just sleep back during. Or forget to turn the app off.

                  Thank you for feedback. The ability to edit the duration of the sleep session is on our roadmap for future versions of Pillow

                • Listen while you fall asleep

                  Ability to listen to music from a playlist or soundtrack from within the app as you fall asleep

                    The upcoming update of Pillow will allow sound from other apps to play while Pillow runs so you can listen to your favourite playlist and then turn on Pillow to start your session without interrupting the sound.

                  • Upload additional sleep aids

                    The list of sleep aids is very limited even after paying for the advanced version. Being able to upload additional tracks or play from another source would be helpful.

                      I would like to be able to use music or sounds from apps other than my iTunes library.

                      • Time until alarm in hh:mm format

                        Currently it describes the time left until the alarm with a decimal number (e.g. 8.7h), but I think it might be more intuitive just to display it as 8:45.

                        • Choice of the aid sound

                          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

                          • 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.

                              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.

                                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

                                    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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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)
