Great App

Faitheloo

Okay, I’m going to start off by saying that I love the app. It works wonderfully, and the technology seems to be greatly engineered to check when I really am sleeping and when I wake up. The audio recordings are great, they’ve caught me saying some hilarious things in my sleep.
I do have some suggestions. I understand that the feature where you can either shake the phone or hold the button for three seconds are meant to make sure people are really awake and getting up. Well, I happen to be a pretty light sleeper, and I get up very well, and I own the full version of the app but I’ve noticed that there is no option to just tap to disable the alarm. I’d like this feature to be implemented if it’s not too much to ask.
Also, I think it may be cool to have a dream journal added. Like when you wake up, there may be a notepad there for you to begin typing out what you dreamt, and it keeps track of the night you dreamt it and stores it somewhere. There should also be an option to click a button that says, “I don’t remember what I dreamt.” And to go back and begin a journal entry if you didn’t remember it at first but now do/didn’t have the time to type it then.
Thank you for your time!

I like the app despite its inaccuracies

I like this app and find that it is helpful with my current goal of trying to get more sleep so I can be more clear and productive every day. I purchased the Premium version because I wanted to hear what noises I could possibly be making at night. The sound recording seems to work only intermittently, despite the fact that the phone is about a foot from my head and the mic sensitivity is on high. It also will sometimes record several notes a minute, for about 10-15 minutes, and those notes end up being empty when I've gone to listen. Also, despite the fact that in my "notes" I put "read" almost every night and "ate late" only once or twice, it says that I ate late about 36% of the time and read 11% of the time - even after I went in and put "read" on almost every night to see if it had an affect - that part of the app does not work. Also, the sleep aid music worked before I paid for the app when I was going to sleep. Now if only works when I'm not using my watch. It does work for naps on my watch, just not when I'm going to bed at night. (I do wonder how it can tell the differences between light, deep and REM sleep.)

Developer Response

Hello! Thank you for reaching out. We're really glad you enjoy Pillow. Regarding the audio recordings, please note that Pillow cannot record any audio while a sleep aid is playing either from Pillow or another app and this could explain why sometimes you are not getting any audio recordings. If you believe that's not the case, please contact our support team to investigate further. Also, the percentage value in the sleep notes indicates how much your sleep quality was affected, not the frequency of each note. Regarding the sleep-aid music, it should always play regardless of whether you use the Apple Watch. Can you please contact our support team and let us know more about this issue? Lastly, to learn more about how Pillow's sleep analysis algorithm works, please check an article that we posted about this on our blog on the following link: https://neybox.com/visualising-sleep-in-pillow/ .

i regret paying for this 😒

Does not accurately read sleep cycles. Realized this when the “sleep aid” sounds kept shutting off thinking I was asleep when I was definitely wide awake. Also apparently it read me as in “light sleep cycle” when I was actually scrolling through instagram in bed.
80% of the alarm sounds are just terrible sudden blares of synthesizer. Nothing like waking up to a sudden jolt in the morning. A few are ok but I’d expect more for paying $5 to choose from 20 total alarms, of which maybe four or five don’t sound like 2000s cell phone ringtones. The “shake” to turn off alarm function still won’t work even though I switched it from “hold to shut off” several days ago. Most of the sleep aid sound affects (of which there are only 11 to choose from) are harsh and artificial and not soothing at all. The rare music that actually worked for me kept waking me up bc it didn’t do an actual loop; just cuts off suddenly and comes blaring back in again. I had finally settled on the rain sound effect until I realized part of its cycle is to randomly increase in volume just when I’m finally getting sleepy, and now I’m wide awake again. The “fireplace” sound effect sounds more like a burning building. The “waves” sound is less the ocean and more a bathtub. And seriously who wants to go to sleep to the sound of a hair dryer???

Developer Response

Hello! Thank you for reaching out. Pillow's sleep analysis and detection algorithm relies on the motion sensors and microphone of your device so errors in its interpretations are possible. We're working on a big update on our sleep analysis and detection algorithm that will greatly reduce these types of errors and allow for new ways to interpret the results. Also, if you own an Apple Watch we strongly recommend using it with Pillow as it provides with more accurate motion data thanks to its position on the wrist. Regarding wake up sounds we are planning to add more options in upcoming updates and, if you have unlocked the Premium Features, you also select any sound from your iTunes and Apple Music subscription library. For sleep aid sounds we intend to do the same and there is also an option to prevent the sleep aid sound from stopping automatically by opening the Alarm Options and going to "Sleep aid Duration". In that panel simply turn off "Automatic" and select a sleep duration that you would like. The hair dryer sound belongs to the category of white noise sounds that help many people fall asleep and was added by popular request. Our support team is always available if you need any additional help. To contact support: Open Pillow on your iPhone > Tap on the Settings icon > Select ‘Helpdesk’.
