  1. Edit data

    I’ve used a couple of apps where I can edit sleep/wake times when I’ve forgotten to press wake up - rather than having 15+hours of awake data ruining my sleep log, I can crop the awake time away. Would be great to have that feature here too.

      • 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!

          We are working on a major redesign that is going to address this issue as you describe. Thank you for your patience.

          • 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.

            • Auto sleep/wake detection with auto stop/start.

              Automatic session stop when you get out of bed and start walking around for a period of time (longer than I takes to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night), so if you forget to stop a session it doesn't keep recording for hours, adding wake time to your sleep stats. Also, if you stop a session in the morning, then fall back asleep, it would be great if Pillow could detect this and resume sleep recording.

                Fully automatic sleep detection and tracking using the Apple Watch or any other wearable that provides heart rate data and steps along with other metrics, is on our roadmap for the near future. We also add the ability to edit and merge sleep sessions so that will handle the use cases you mention :)

              • Manually edit sleep times

                Let me manually correct my sleeping data (ie add sleep when forgotten to activate when going to bed or forgotten to stop in the morning)

                  Editing the duration of existing sleep sessions is going to be available on the upcoming update. We are also working on automatic sleep detection so adding new sleep sessions won’t be needed because you won’t have to tap a button to start the session. Thank you for your patience!

                • 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.

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

                        There could be more personal advice on how to improve sleep quality. For instance, if I am getting sufficient sleep or if I need more and how to get better sleep.

                        • Turn off screen while, screen up, on wireless charging mat

                          With iPhone 8, 8+, and X all having wireless charging capabilities, I suggest that the phone would turn off the screen when placed screen up on a charging pad while in a sleep session just like it does when placed down and plugged in. This would make charging using a wireless charging mat overnight possible which would have the potential of greatly increasing the lifespan of the battery.

                          • Easy deletion of recordings

                            It's very annoying to delete each recording separately. I would like to mark those recordings I want to keep. And unmarked recordings will be deleted by pressing "Delete unmarked recordings".

                            Thank you.

                              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!

                                Hi guys!

                                When we look at the different charts we never know the exact number (percentage, hours of sleep, etc) maybe above each column we could have the exact number written OR if we click on the arrow then the number would show of. Cause right now, these charts are really not interesting for me. It's like they don't give any detailed informations and justed average

                                      • Face up screen dimming

                                        I use an iPhone X on a wireless charger and an Apple Watch to track my movement. The screen is too bright to leave face up in a dark room. I’m also worried about screen burn-in. It would be nice if the screen dimmed when the sleep tracking starts.

                                          Hello! The upcoming update of Pillow will have the option to dim the screen completely when placed on a wireless charger.

                                        • Automatic sleep tracking every night!

                                          There is a new app in the store called Auto Sleep that automatically tracks your sleep every night, even if you forget to open the app before you fall asleep!

                                          It uses the motion sensors on the watch, so even if you fell asleep before you remembered to start the app, when you wake up in the morning and open the app, it will still upload your movement data from the night and give you an analysis.

                                          So the only time you have to remember to open the app before you fall asleep is if you want the sound recording…

                                            Fully automatic sleep tracking and detection is already in the works and will be available as part of a future major update along with many other improvements. We’ll post more details as we are nearing the release.
