Ratings and Reviews
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/ . To contact support: Open Pillow on your iPhone > Tap on the Settings icon > Select 'Helpdesk'.
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!
Ignore the sleep stats
Every single night it says it either took my 0 minutes to sleep or 10 when I know neither was true. It does know when I get up to go to the bathroom at night and the way the snooze is timed seems to be very helpful because it lets me hit snooze but knows when to buzz again so I do t go back into a deep sleep.
I don’t believe the accuracy of my sleep quality at all. When I feel well rested I’ll have a low quality number which I consider in the 60’s and every other night it’s in the 70’s. Never higher. I tend to think that it’s because I use an iphone placed next to my pillow and that if I wore a watch it would be more accurate but I don’t know how it works.
I wake up at the same time 7 days a week and it has been extremely helpful in discovering what my optimal bedtime is because it’s a bit later than what I thought and it’s right!
It is excellent at learning your sleep habits I just don’t think it measures things correctly. Take the sleep stats with a grain of salt but just for the optimal sleep time and the snooze timer, I highly recommend it. Oh and I love the color coded bar chart of my sleep cycle. That is extreme accurate!
