  1. Lay in Bed Time

    Sometimes it takes me quite a long time to fall asleep. For me it would be interesting if there's a measurement how long it took to fall asleep for a specific night, on average and how it changed over the last weeks.

      The latest version of Pillow now displays the time to fall asleep, including a set of updates on the detailed statistics charts.

    • Heart Rate Monitoring In The Morning

      Implement a simple heart rate monitor system that measures your heart rate using your iPhone's flash and camera, this could then be plotted along with your sleeping patterns in the sleep analysis view to see how your heartbeat changes from one morning to the next.

          Pillow already increases the volume of the alarm sound gradually. Please open a support ticket if you are experiencing any problems with this feature.

            • Longer sleep aid time or replay option

              Sometimes it takes me quite a while to fall asleep and I am also someone who can't sleep without some kind of background noise. I like that this app has the sleep aid feature. However, I found that the app falsely detected that I was asleep 3 times... So I had to unlock and restart the sleep app each time just to replay the sleep aid. By the second time this happened I found myself intentionally and probably unattractive trying to make more movements just in the hopes that this would prevent the noise from shutting off.. Nope! It didn't…

                Pillow now support a manual sleep aid duration setting so that you can adjust the duration the sleep aid as long as you prefer. In addition the latest version of Pillow now lets you listen to audio from other sources and apps, like podcasts or Spotify so that you can use those sources as a sleep aid as well.

              • iPad version

                An iPad version is already under development. The iPad version will become available as a free update to all those who bought the app and all the data you will have recored will be synced seamlessly if you have enabled the iCloud sync option.

                • Track Heartbeat to Assist in Sleep Cycle Analyzation

                  Since our heart rate plays an important role in defining what sleep cycle we are in, why not track with the iwatch? I have yet to see an app do this with an alarm system as well. This would put you above everyone on the market. With adding a heart rate monitor, you would be able to provide even more true results to a persons sleep quality and patterns.

                  • Ideal Bed Time notification

                    It would be great to get a notification when it should be time for you to get in bed! Setting your week certain days you have to get up at a certain time and therefore knowing when the best time to go to bed would be (also considering your sleep debt).

                    • Monitor heart rate during sleep and resting rate

                      It would be great I it could use the Apple Watch to monitor your heart rate during the night and get the resting heart rate as soon as you wake uo

                        • Update Notifications

                          Maybe you could include details on planned updates and their dates in the app, under "Helpdesk". That way I'm not frustrated or impatient, and feel like my pleas for some features fall on silent ears.

                            After reviewing the recorded audio in the morning I'd like to be asked to delete the audio for the night in one step as opposed to one short recording at a time.

                                This is already available by selecting a mode that does not include an alarm. We’ve prepared a set of videos that include a demonstration of this (8th video).

                                • Sleep aid for longer

                                  Make the sleep aid sounds last for longer then it takes to enter "light sleep" because during naps it thinks I enter light sleep when I'm wide awake. I enjoy the sleeping aid which makes naps at least close to possible in the office, but when the music stops I an jolted out of anything and can now hear all outside noises.

                                    Yeah Audio for the relaxing sounds before sleep should be separate to the audio for the alarm.

                                      The volume levels of the alarm sound and sleep aid are already handled differently in Pillow. You can setup your preferred volume level in Pillow from the Alarm settings panel, by tapping on the Bell icon on the bottom right corner. You can adjust the sleep aid sound volume using your iPhone or iPad physical buttons on the side.

                                        We’re very happy to announce that the latest version of Pillow, now handles audio streaming in a new way so that audio from any other source is not silenced!

                                      • Sonos Speakers integration

                                        This will allow me to use this app for an alarm clock. I will be able to use my wireless speaker next to my bed.

                                        • Podcast volume adjustment made independent

                                          I fall asleep to podcasts and use the sleep timer feature as well. When Pillow is active, the podcast volume is reduced to a very low level. I would like to be able to adjust the podcast volume and make this feature usable again as it was prior to the previous update.
