  • Great app, questions

    But I've got a question. I noticed it had recorded a bunch of audio during my sleep session so I unlocked the premium features. Mostly it recorded my TV which was on in the background. Last night there were 707 recordings that lasted anywhere from 11 seconds to a minute and a half from the time that I lay down until the time that I woke up. Even though my iPhone 6S plus is 64GB, I'm kind of wondering where that audio data is stored, and if it can be deleted when it's no longer needed? Since I am a developer of sorts I was able to break into the app data area and look through the contents of the var/mobile/containers/data/application/pillow.app folder, but I could not find any stored audio data. Found a bunch of files with the extension .ODT, which appeared to be some kind of archive so I opened up a few of those and there happened to be a text file inside listing the audio events. But the question is how much impact on the app size footprint does storing the audio have? It appears to be a very low audio format, and I know some of the lowest audio codecs can store quite a bit of audio information with just a few megabytes. But still I would like to be able to delete unused audio after I have heard what it is. Also I had the heart rate monitor turned on, it transferred the audio data into my second iPhone but it did not transfer the heart rate data. Is there anyway to get the heart rate data to sync up between my two devices? One night I will use my 6S, the next night I might use my 6S plus. Also I am assuming that this app would work better if my iPhone were connected to some kind of health monitoring device and I notice a whole lot of connections for that that are unused because I don't have one yet. I look forward to being able to hook those up.

    Disappointed. Right off the bat, this app never worked for me and it’s frustrating. I have a brand new Iphone 8 plus and a brand new series 1 watch. All system updates are installed. I downloaded your app and tried using it two nights in a row and kept getting “analysis failed” errors on my watch. So I restarted my watch and my iPhone with no fix. Then i deleted the app and reinstalled. Still no fix. Getting same error message. My Bluetooth is indeed on. All my other apps work just fine. No bueno.
  • Not completely bad

    I have been using the app a couple of days now with my Apple Watch and have found that the app is not bad. I previously used the Fitbit app with Fitbit Blaze which is much better for monitoring sleep. This app has the annoying upgrade pop up that wants you to upgrade so that you can view your history. This is free with Fitbit. It seems to do its job once you figure out how to get it started using the watch.

    Love this sleeping app. It’s a great way to help me communicate with my Doctor about my insomnia!
  • Give it a Try!!

    Honestly, I thought this was all bogus.. but after my curiosity got to me and I gave it a shot, I was really impressed. This was all with the free version. I now have to 5.00USD version and am very excited to try it out. My advice... get the free version, give it a shot (what could it hurt) and if you really like it, (I sure did) then get the paid version to get all the extras and features! Hope this helped and best of luck!! - Dillon
  • Doesn’t work with white noise machine

    By San Fran Mission
    I had high hopes for this app, I should of tried it out before I bought it. This app does not work if you use a white noise machine even if the machine is located on the other side of the room. I tried all three sensitivity levels and placed the phone next to me on the bed as well rebooting my phone and reinstalling the app. I reached out to the developer and got a response regarding my first question but they never replied to my second question which was about the white noise machine. I am sure the app is good as most people have stated but if you use anything at night to block noise then this app won’t work for you. I also found the readings to be wrong about how much sleep I got and I used my Apple Watch while using this app at night.
  • Great concept; terrible execution

    By Almostgotraped
    Almost daily my Analysis does not sync to my app. There is always some unknown issue. The usage is challenging because it is running on your watch and your phone. It’s is a wasted effort to try and use this App.
  • How do I know

    This is probably a great app, but I can’t get past buy full version screen. I am opting to buy another type.
