  1. Dream information

    There NEEDS to be more information to put in upon waking up. Like a dream journal and seeing if my vivid dreams have any connection with stuff the night before like alcohol intake and how a bad dream affects my wake up mood. Can rate dreams good to nightmarish and see them on a graph. I forget my dreams pretty quick but get annoyed because they really have an impact on what the data is telling me (like why I’m saying weird stuff in my sleep)

    • Visual PDF export with graphs like shown in-app incl. heart rate, percentage data and notes

      It would be great if you could export as PDF (besides the .csv).
      In the PDF you can visualize the graphics as shown in the app per night.

      For one night you see all the data collected:
      - visual graphic of the sleep stages including heart rate
      - visual bar of the sleep stages with underneath percentage AND time
      - date
      - start / end time
      - total duration a sleep
      - total duration in bed
      - time to sleep
      - sleep quality
      - average heart rate per sleep stage
      - # sound recordings
      - wake-up mood
      - notes

        • Track Actual Time To Sleep

          It would be great if the app tracked data and analyzed it for how long it took me to go to sleep with each recorded session. (Eg. the time between “In Bed” and “Asleep”)

          • Do away with bright screen on snooze lab and settings

            Give us the option to reverse colors on the snooze lab and settings screen or just make them darker across the board. Having a bright screen shine in your eyes in a dark room isn’t fun at all.

            • Full Import \ Sync with Health Kit

              I have over 2 years of sleep data from using Sleep Cycle - it would be great if the Pillow app could pull or sync all of my previous Apple Health data for analysis, rather than just the previous day of data.

              • Show the science behind the app

                I am all for using smartphone sensors to make health tracking accessible to the masses, but it seems important to be aware of what kind of accuracy we are dealing with.

                For example, how can Pillow distinguish between deep sleep and REM if both phases are characterized by a complete lack of movement and the only difference is mental activity levels?

                Obviously phone or smart watch sensors cannot track mental activity and there is no difference in heart rate between those phases.

                So how does it work?

                If the distinction is arbitrary, it follows that Pillow's sleep quality score is…

                • manually exclude certain sleep sessions from averaging

                  It would be great if we could manually exclude certain sleep sessions under unusual circumstances from averaging. For instance, for my job I have to take in house 24 hour call. On those days, I may sleep very little or not at all. But those don’t really represent my regular sleeping habits for those days of the week or overall. I also sometimes have to take night call for days or weeks at a time and it would be nice if we could designate some of those sessions to be excluded, especially in terms of analyzing optimum sleep time.

                  Maybe…

                    It should be great to have a new interface less light, with the brightness set to minimum, in the night, the interface is too light and not really esthetic unlike the iPhone app...

                      Hello! We’re considering this as part of a major redesign that is currently in the works. Thank you for your patience.

                    • Add feature to show summary of nights sleep on iPhone’s Notification Screen upon waking up

                      My husband uses a different sleeping app which I don’t find too reliable and I don’t like the graphics but it comes with ONE great feature that I wish Pillow had. When he grabs his phone in the morning it shows a quick summary in the Notification area as soon as his phone wakes up. It would be great to see the following: time you fell asleep, time you woke up, total time in bed and sleep quality.

                      Thank you! I’ve started using the automatic sleep session since getting the new Apple Watch and it is nearly dead on every…

                      • HomeKit Integrations

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

                          • exclude TV noise from audio

                            It would be nice if pillow could recognize a continuous amount of chatter that would indicate TV and not record a bunch of clips for while TV is on. Then, when the more or less continuous noise ceases (if the user has set a sleep timer or something), it can start picking noise up again.

                              • Focus on features that help me get a better sleep

                                The best use you can meet in using a sleep monitoring app is to help you get a better sleep time.

                                This may come with a better understanding of your own sleep data versus a benchmark data. And, of course, all the way to get there.

                                Bringing useful tools to analyze your data crossing with everything that may had cause this positive or negative event during your sleep time or throu a series of days.

                                  There is lots of good data.. however, is the % I'm awake good? Bad? To me, this is like saying you have 42 bugs in your software... is it good? Bad? Can the app use big data or AI to interpret the data and give more actionable or interpreted feedback?

                                        Add a customizable timer function to the Sleep Aid. I want to use the sleep aid longer than 2 hrs--maybe even until an hour before my alarm. One app I use lets me designate the exact time to shut off sleep aid noises. I'd like that option with Pillow.

                                        • Details of sleeping time

                                          I would like to know sleeping “time”, but not percent.
                                          For example, “REM 40m”, “Deep sleep 1h” and so on, not “REM 10%”, “Deep sleep 27%”.
                                          Because I would like to know if I could keep a constant deep sleeping "time".
