Better cooperation with Apple Screen Time
In iOS 12 with the new Screen Time feature, using the manual mode of Pillow throws off statistics because the phone has to be on for several hours in the app. It would be nice if Pillow could be excluded from Screen Time (or some other adjustment like that), so it doesn't skew all the numbers and information.

The previous app I used for sleep tracking makes you face the screen downwards on the bed. This sleeps the screen without locking it. (Or at least, that's how they programmed it.) Consequently, it doesn't turn up on the Screen Time report. Actually, I'm not sure why Pillow insists on having the screen facing up.
I agreed. They have to find a solution this problem.
One small solution would be to turn the phone around. Of course, this only works if you don't charge wirelessly. Maybe there will be a fix soon.

Agreed! I have read that locking the screen will prevent that time from being reported, but I am not sure how this would affect the app, especially because the app specifically advised not to lock the screen.
