  1. Auto start

    You must definitely include an option of auto-starting the full cycle sleep when I open the app during night time.

    For instance , if I open the app at 12am ( obviously I wanted to record my sleep )
    So the I request you to include an option of auto starting the app in full cycle when I open the app at night time.

    • A morning reminder

      A reminder for the morning. You know sometimes you are sleepy but then you read "you have got to sit an exam at 7am.... GET UP!" Hence please, a reminder for the morning =_=

      • Sleep Aid Sound Suggestion

        The first app I used to track my sleep was Pillow, but I decided to try out another sleep tracking app and one of the sleep aid sounds I fell in love with was "rain on a car roof" sound. I would love if that was added into Pillow because I much prefer the interface of Pillow and many of its features. But I really miss "rain on a car roof"!!!

        Note: that may not be the exact name of the sound but it very similar.

        • UI Orientation

          As an iPhone user that loves to lock my orientation to portrait, I find it quite disruptive to view more information by having to switch orientation to landscape, thus resulting in me just not seeing that information whatsoever. As a portrait user I would love the option to scroll through the x axis without having to switch orientation, in turn creating a much smoother user flow.

              Hello, thank your for reaching out. Pillow already integrates with Apple Health, so it is possible to exchange data with Fitbit. Is there something particular that you think it’s missing?

            • Louder alarms

              I know the idea is to wake up feeling refreshed and not jolted out of sleep. Me and a friend have bin trying it and sometimes we will sleep threw the mellow and dull alarms. Not saying change anything but add new louder alarms

                  Some research data on what the result mean would be helpful.

                  • Partner with other devices

                    Alternatively, what about partnering with a worn device like the Jawbone Up that measures your heart rate directly on your wrist throughout the night? They measure the various stages of sleep as well but don't calculate the sleep quality. The Pillow app would be a great compliment to that. I would love to see this data utilized better and Pillow is just the app to do it.

                      Pillow integrates with Apple’s Health so if you use a wearable that shares data with Health you can view it inside Pillow and see how it compares with your Sleep quality. Conversely, you can allow Pillow to export your sleep data into Apple’s Health so that your wearable device can access this information.

                    • Add more sleep aids

                      Latest update cited two additional sleep aid melodies. I did not see them listed but agree two to three more sleep aid melodies would be great. I am getting bored of the two only melodies in the sleep aid. I also recommend to improve the fireplace ambient sound. The quality of it is poor.

                            • Keep tracking after alarm stop if app is still open

                              I find myself several mornings waking up to Pillow, checking out my sleep stats for the night and then falling back asleep. A good chunk of my sleep data goes unrecorded because of this behavior, and I tend to oversleep.

                              Thinking logically, the reasonable way to implement this would be an alarm disarm that requires getting out of bed, such as a qr code scan. The on-screen button or shake would just snooze the alarm for a smart amount of time.

                              • Make it so the app doesn't think you're asleep when using the phone.

                                This evening, I set pillow and then surfed the Internet for a bit. Eventually I got tired and went to sleep. Upon waking, I looked at my sleep pattern. The app said that I fell asleep minutes after setting the timer. I had actually been on the phone for over an hour before sleeping. I have lost A LOT of faith in the validity of the app. Please fix.

                                  It would be nice to have a insight when there is a new moon, full moon, and you can see when you sleep the best under the moon.

                                    Hi,

                                    I think you have a great and colorful app with neat design, the stats that you are providing are sufficient enough but they could be more interesting. I specially like the stats you providing about best sleeping night. I think if you could extend these kind of information to "best night of week", "best Monday's sleep", etc... this will all so much value to your app. Combining this with Badges will make it even more great. It also encourages your users to use the app more often.

                                    PS: In my opinion, Nike+ Fuel has done a great job implementing…

                                      Hi, i hope you can opt to a drop down version instead of plus and minus signs. It's hard to adjust the buttons especially to those who have a large fingers.
