Ratings and Reviews
I have learned to love it
When I first got the app, I struggled to Bluetooth connect to my CPAP machine. It must have been a learning curve, because now it uploads automatically every morning. As soon as I turn my machine off, I literally just tap the DreamMapper app to open it, and syncing is automatic.
It is a little quirky if you try to "do the most" in connecting your Bluetooth. This is the only Bluetooth device that once connected will display the CPAP as both a connected and a connectable device (listed twice, which creates confusion, and difficulty if you try to "fix" this. Just connect once, and open the app daily and it will auto sync.
The app gives you: Sleep hours, apneas, hypopneas, and is searchable by week with bar graphs, comparing your nights. There are helpful videos, goals, and product suggestions, which is nice to know about certain things, like the new portable CPAP for hiking, and things like that.
Love it or hate it, I've learned to love this app and accept my sleep apnea. I've learned how to use it, and it is a super-easy component to my morning, which I believe it was programmed to auto-grab data every morning off the cpap. Just make sure the cpap is on (i.e. You just turned off the air) then open DreamMapper
A Necessary Tool for the Phillips CPAP
I have found the Phillips Dreamware app to be a necessary diagnostic tool for helping me understand the quality of my sleep each night. I have been using it for many months now. The application indicates how long you wore the mask, the effectiveness of the seal it had with your face, and the overall AHI sleep index with a breakdown for the number of occurrences of obstructive apnea, clear airway apnea, and hypopnea during the sleep period. You can also generate column chart graphs for up to 90 days that show how long the mask was worn, the effectiveness of the seal, and the overall AHI index for each sleep period during the chosen span of days. Note: the breakdown of the AHI index is only shown for each sleep period. The only bug I have observed with the app is when it pops up an error message saying it failed to connect via Bluetooth, and yet when you click "OK" the data usually transfers despite the error warning (false error). One nice additional feature would be to download the sleep data as a CSV or tab delimited file so that you can better look at the raw data in Excel or some other spreadsheet tool of choice (for those who are more analytically minded).
Annoying app, but useful...
First off, I do use this app daily to view the quality and the direction of my sleep each day. I have used that information to train myself to sleep more and understand the quality of my sleep. The interface presents little information beyond the basics, and the Bluetooth connection is difficult on my iPhone 5. This is one of the few apps that I have difficulty with and that creates much annoyance. It will not stay paired with my iPhone and requires a re-pairing frequently. I know it's the app because the apps for my cars stay paired pretty much permanently even when I am away from the car for long periods. I am surprised that this has been missed by the Phillips engineers but nonetheless it is so. Because the CPAP machine is mounted permanently at a lower level than my bed it is difficult to turn the knobs and dials and the machine has to be restarted frequently to get the readings, but the information it provides is worth it even if annoying.
