Excellent News from the NIH: An independent study that tested and compared 126 snoring apps in the App Store reports "Quit Snoring" as the best!
Published in Sep 2015: "...The Quit Snoring app received the highest overall rating. When this app's recordings were compared with in-laboratory polysomnography data, app snoring sensitivities ranged from 64 to 96 per cent, and snoring positive predictive values ranged from 93 to 96 per cent. A chronic snorer used the app nightly for one month and tracked medical interventions. Snoring decreased from 200 to 10 snores per hour, and bed partner snoring complaint scores decreased from 9 to 2 (on a 0-10 scale)."
Do you snore? Quit Snoring (previously "Snoring U") will improve your and your spouse sleep. Up to date Quit Snoring helps over 100,000 people to improve and monitor their breathing while sleeping.
"Thank you for a wonderful app. I am finding it very helpful in monitoring improvements in using a dental appliance."
"I have looked for ways to stop snoring and couldn't find anything as useful and practical as Quit Snoring…It's simple to setup and the results are beyond my expectations".
"Quit Snoring is the most advanced snoring app in iTunes that works…and has the best support ever…Finally a Snoring app that does what it says it will do."
Quit Snoring uses an essential new approach to overcome snoring episodes. While you're sleeping, Quit Snoring remains alert, even when your device goes into sleep mode. It monitors your sleep session, listen carefully and when you snore it will produce gentle nudge by that most snorers cease snoring.
A nudge is a vibration (on iPhone) or a sound that you selected in advance, or both. You can even record your own sounds to use as nudges. On the settings screen you can also adjust the volume of the sound and the maximum number of times Quit Snoring will nudge you with each snoring event.
When you awake in the morning, the Summary screen shows you how long you slept, how often you snored during the night, how loud your snoring was, and how many nudges you received. If you tap the "See Graph" button you'll see all of this and more, on an easy to read, zoom-able graph and you'll be able to choose the exact places you want to listen to.
If you're under the care of a physician for a sleep disorder, you can email the doctor all of your stats without leaving the app. Your doctor can see at a glance just how often you snore, and whether the nudges are helpful, as well as monitoring the progress over time of any other anti-snoring and/or anti apneic treatment.
Features of Quit Snoring include:
* Intelligent graph allow quick zooming, panning and listening to the sleep session
* Records and plays back the entire sleep session
* Sophisticated algorithm to "nudge" a snorer
* Nudges to help you stop snoring
* Email from app
* Continues to work when device is in sleep mode
* Delayed start of monitoring
* History feature lets you review several sleep sessions
* Ability to add user notes to the sleep session
* Ability to add drop pins into the graph, including a note
In moderate cases Quit Snoring can help with individual occurrences of snoring. More important are the diagnostic benefits of Quit Snoring. The history feature keeps track of statistics for all previous sleep sessions.
If you use Quit Snoring, your spouse will thank you! If you're married or you share a bed, Quit Snoring can nudge you and get you to roll over and stop snoring before you wake your significant other.
Download Quit Snoring now because iPhone monitoring may improve your sleep, and the sleep of everyone around you.

Ratings and Reviews
I want to like it.
The app apparently does what it says, but the problem is that the vibration nudge makes the phone vibrate 3 long times and there's no option to make it only one or two vibrations. I wake up with the first one and the thing just wakes me up even more every time. I contacted the developers a couple of weeks ago and still nothing...
Works very well
Apparantly, I start snoring as soon as I become unconcious. This app works for me. I can leave the phone on the end table, while I sleep, or on the bed and it picks up the snore even if I'm on my side facing away. I've been using vibrate mode for the nudges and it wakes me no problem. Unfortunately, it also wakes my wife, so sleep position training will have to continue while sleeping solo. The history graph and audio recording prove what has happened. Also, adequate tweakable settings allow fine tuning. I am very glad to have discovered this app.
iPhone 6 problem
Update: Doesn't work all night. Emailed developer to ask when an update would fix the problem and was told it isn't a priority.
Wish I could get a refund.
Update: after a month still waiting on an update so this will work through the night. The developers answered quick, but not responding quickly.
Dropping my rating accordingly.
Overall this is a good app. My one problem is that with my iPhone6 it maxes out on nudges at 103, despite having it set at unlimited. The developers have been very responsive, otherwise I'd have given this review 3 stars. But, still waiting after 3 weeks for an update. If that fixes things I'd give it a 5star rating.
