  1. Way to clear audio recordings en mass

    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.

      Hello,
      This functionality is already supported by Pillow. Tap on the trashcan icon on the top right of the screen and select to delete all audio recordings for the current sleep session. To delete all audio recordings from all sessions go to: Settings > Database > Delete all audio recordings.

        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).

      • Apple watch support

        • 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.

          • Separate audio

            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.

                  • Sleep Sounds

                    I have an app that I have used for a long time with sleep sounds. But this app doesn't allow me to play them. I would like to be able to listen to whatever I like while sleeping. The sounds available in this app are nice but they shut off when it thinks I'm sleeping. Which wakes me up.

                        • Airpods are disabled

                          I need them to function as I listen to music to help sleep. Currently you can t use then with this app.

                              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!

                            • 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.

                              • Same graphs on iPhone as on Apple watch

                                After one night sleep the Apple watch shows a very nice graph with details on deep sleep, rem sleep, time awake etc. First, I would like to see the same graphs on the iPhone including history. Then I would like to see a history graph that includes the data over time (different lines in one graph for deep sleep, rem sleep etc)

                                • Disable app from altering master volume

                                  When I use this app, sometimes the max loudness of audio is reduced to about half, even when I set the volume to "manual" and at 100%. It even alters this variable even after you exit the app.

                                  This is really annoying because I want my alarms to be loud. Please fix this or make an option to allow the master volume of the device and alarms to not be altered when using this app.

                                    The current version of Pillow has the option manually setup the alarm volume. You can find this option in the alarm settings by tapping on the little “bell” icon on the bottom right.

                                  • Watch set to "dark" while wearing at night

                                    As soon as I start my sleep with pillow there should be an option that hitting start darkens the screen for the whole night to avoid the bright clock face from waking me up during sleep when I move.

                                    • Heart rate without watch

                                      There is lots of comments about monitoring the heart rate with the Apple Watch. It would be great to have heart rate monitoring but with a simple wrist band so you don't have to go to the expense of getting an Apple Watch just for this.

                                        The latest version of Pillow includes detailed heart rate analysis using data from Apple Health. Any wearable devices that shares data with Apple Health can be used.

                                        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.
