Best app 5/5
By jermaine savoy
Inaccurate period. Oh and too complex to correct
Great app for sleep tracking 5/5
Really great app for sleep tracking. I like that it determines your best time to go to bed based on how you sleep. But as far as analysis of your sleep I wish there was a way to see minutes of deep sleep vs minutes of REM etc. instead of just percentage. I like the percentage but it’s not the full picture because 30% deep sleep and 26% REM sleep is not the same on a 4 hour sleep night as a 9 hour sleep night. I wish you could tap the % to switch back and forth between minutes and percentage of each type of sleep.
Don’t try it 1/5
This app is a waste of time. Do not even try it. It is not accurate at all I mean at all. My Fitbit is accurate this is a joke. It says that I sleep four hours a night that is not what I sleep I sleep at average of 6.5 hours a night.
Useless for shift workers 1/5
I’m currently working a month of night shifts. This app doesn’t recognize working nights and sleeping during the day. It provides no useful information. Don’t waste your money. SleepMatic is much better.
Great app with tremendous information 5/5
By Ride Ready
I was a little leery that pillow would perform as advertised but I have to say it has performed above all expectations
Was my favorite app 3/5
Bug was fixed im Abel to start my own cycles I still don’t like that I have to pay for features that were once free like seeing my previous days
This app was my favorite app I was able to start my own sleep cycles see previous days and get detailed analysis of my sleep. I’m not sure if it was an update or me getting the series four watch but now I am no longer able to start my own sleep cycles and every time I try to see the previous day it’s now asking me to purchase the pro version. How am I to know spending the money will make this app actually work better and spending money on a feature that used to be free. I suggest this app to everyone it was the only one I like using and now I feel I can’t track my sleep anymore. Please fix whatever bug there is when I try to click start it just freezes and doesn’t start tracking my sleep at all. I used to love this app now I can’t use it
Frustrating to say the least 1/5
By Mike Milt.
Tried the app last night. Lucky for me I sent the screenshot of results to email first thing this morning because I can’t find it now. I can’t find any of the promised results either. The sample graphs and reports look great in the app store, but if I can’ access my real data then the app isn’t worth much because I’m probably not going to save the screen shot daily and do my own analysis. The promised ‘sleep diary’ function seems to be what I need, but it never appears as an option when running the app. Can I rate the app -1 since I wasted so much time on it? I had high hopes, but so far have only limited results and much frustration.
Fabulous feedback 5/5
Love the feedback this app provides!

Helps me sleep, amazing app😆😆😆
Decent data. But not automatic 3/5
This app gives good information, but it doesn’t analyze your sleep data from your Apple Watch until you open the app on your phone and click on the the day. I would also like to see data points like running sleep averages and quality averages.
What Happened? 2/5
I’ve been using the app every night for over a year with no real issues. I don’t use the automatic setting. For some reason with the latest version it crashes in the morning when I wake up and manually turn it off. This has been happening for most of the last week. I tried removing and reinstalling on my watch and nothing has changed. Very frustrated as I really liked this app. I gave two stars because of the issue. My normal rating would have been 5 ... Please fix it.
Stop button doesn’t work 1/5
i have used this app for the longest time, even bought the premium add on, and the button that ends all sessions doesn’t even work!!! i have to close the whole app just to end a session, which results in a loss of my night’s data!! horrible!!!!
Sometimes it doesn’t track from 7PM TO Midnight
Not very accurate. Would not purchase again! 1/5
Not accurate. Overpriced. Would not recommend.
So far so good 5/5
By Brn ystrdy
To me this stuff is just fun and interesting. Great easy to use free app. I know it was totally accurate one night because I woke from a dream and looked at the time. It recorded REM followed by awake. Really neat app. Just started, May update if I try the paid version where you can record your sounds.
Really love pillow and use everyday
I love Pillow! Recently, I have been looking for ways to track the quality of my sleep due to sleep disturbances and new medications (ssri/melatonin) and this app works great for that. It is also VERY easy to use and see the data. I’ve had the app for a couple years I believe but was not totally using it to its greatest ability. But recently I fell back in love with it and use it every day now. Trust me you won’t be disappointed with this app!
Not really sure about this. 2/5
Does not work properly it starts my sleep session 3hours prior to when I actually go to sleep so how does it detect when I fall to sleep deep sleep and rem sleep I keep trying to figure out how to set the time to start it and I try several different things until by accident I try something and it works the next night I try again to do the same but then nothing so I finally give up . I keep trying thinking it is me but I soon shall give up and no longer use it.
Love it, but... 1/5
For some odd reason it has been duplicating my items in my list and closing randomly after started. It hasn’t recently caught the right sleep either. It won’t show my most recent sleep pattern when I swipe. It just gives me 3 bars and crash.
Other than that, I love this app. I sleep better.
Sometimes it glitches. I can’t unlock my phone. Then when I restart the phone, all the data is not recorded.
Not sure how accurate it is with RIM sleep. But, it gives me some information to work with about what’s going on when I sleep.
Needs to be we’re down a little bit
Is not accurate 1/5
I have Pillow and SleepWatch apps both using my Iwatch. After comparing the two side by side Pillow doesn’t keep accurate time of my sleep sessions. Sometimes they were off by 2 hours. I know what time I would fall asleep but Pillow wouldn’t start the session until 1 hour or more after and had me waking up 30-45 minutes before I awoke. I’m sorry I had purchased Pillow and would encourage others to put other apps on their phone and compare. FYI SleepWatch provides a lot more information than Pillow.
stay away 1/5
do NOT waste your time with this app
and whatever you do, do NOT pay five dollars.
this app does NOT work
this is especially annoying because it USED to work, until i paid. Then it missed 15+ hours of sleep (two full nights in a row plus a nap).
whats even worse is my eagerness to check the data when i wake up and find NOTHING there! thats a bummer, a hurdle in the morning i have to overcome fist thing out of bed. an obstacle i PAID for.
dont feel had by this developer like i do.
save yourself from unnecessary frustration and save yourself $5 too. i wish i had
stay away from this app
I want to love it 2/5
I want to love Pillow because it’s the best sleep tracking app I’ve been able to find for my Apple Watch since I switched over from FitBit. Unfortunately this app is horrible. The 24 hour sleep detection claims that I’m asleep when I’m awake and vice versa. I hate that you can’t set different detection hours for different days. I also hate that I am constantly having to edit my sleep hours to accurately reflect when I woke up. The only reason I keep using it is because it’s the most accurate sleep app I’ve been able to find, which is sad. Big changes need to be made to this app in order for me to actually love it and recommend it.
Not worth the $ 1/5
By Tyler J
Maybe if you are very passively using this could be just *okay* but I just paid for the app to be able to hear what was happening in the night and it just crashes when I try to listen... also, I know for a fact I was waken up in the middle of the night and that’s not showing, my Apple Watch picked up a raised heart rate, but pillow for some reason thought I was still asleep.
I definitely sleep more than 90 minutes 2/5
This app is terrible at tracking my sleep. Every day, it tells me I was awake for most of the night, with only about 90 minutes worth of sleep. I kept having it reanalyze, but it just kept failing. Time to delete.
So far..a total waste. 1/5
Auto mode detected me as sleeping all day even though I was at work and active. Manual mode allowed me to hit snooze on my watch but the alarm continues on the phone. Drains your battery then tells you not enough data to analyze even though I’ve given it every permission it could want.
The Pillow App is a must have! 5/5
By Aaron L Peggs
Extremely accurate and an invaluable tool for those of us needing to get an accurate understanding of our actual sleep as opposed to just guessing. Add the soothing relaxing sleep sounds plus nap features and lots of tips as to the benefits of napping and lots more tips in the snooze lab section, and just a single 1 time payment $5 or $6 dollars, this to me was a no brained!
It’s really helped me that much 🙂
Good app but... 4/5
This is a amazing app.
If you buy the full version. While the free version does have good qualities , it is the qualities of the full version I am looking for most in a sleep tracking app
Works sometimes 2/5
Good when it works
Not impressed. 1/5
Wouldn’t auto track sleep. Wouldn’t get my data from my watch.
No for me! 1/5
So I got this app since Apple has no equivalent just yet. I really wanted to love it since the graphics are done so similar to all the watch and activity features. But no. I’m uninstalling already. It’s super inaccurate. It says I’m asleep when I’m clearly awake, measures gaps as if I’m awake when I’m actually asleep, and overall just has too many errors.
Cannot Get App to work with Apple Watch 1/5
I've tried everything suggested on the "Help" pages and still cannot get the app to work successfully on my Apple Watch.
Great App! 5/5
I love this app! It helps me get more sleep, and tracks my heart rate. Once I started using this app, I realized I started to be in a better mood in the mornings, and at night. And personally, I love waking up early, but like everyone else, it’s sometimes difficult for me to do it.
I only gave this app 4 stars because of the Premium Feature. It’s quite hard to use the app without it, being that almost everything is limited to it. It costs $5.00, and I’m not sure that I recommended buying it because I have not purchased it myself. On one section, it actually charges you to rotate your device horizontally, and not only that but to change many of your alarms, look at your previous data, and more. I love this app, but there are a few things that could be fixed such as this issue.
So far I am really enjoying the app. It keeps me engaged in getting proper rest.
Great app, but... 4/5
By Riley LeVangie
I honestly think this app is the best out of most of the sleep monitoring applications out there. Pillow somehow not only preserves your battery life, but offer a ton of information about your sleep that could be quite useful.
Here’s my issue with it: I feel like the $4.99 Pillow Premium is a bit too restricting. For instance, you cannot go back and look at past recordings in the pillow app unless you purchase this premium. You also cannot turn your phone horizontally to view better statistics of your sleep. The rest of the features offered in Pillow Premium I could understand, but I feel like that Neybox (the company that develops Pillow) does this to give customers one option to be able to compare your sleep in the past vs now.
Good, not great 3/5
The app works well on my watch, but when I lose many of the features by using automatic mode it’s kind of a miss, for me. For something that I pay for the premium features and not really gaining much through that payment by using it in a more inconvenient way, I dislike that.
My whole thing is, I would like to be able to use the alarm, but can’t because I don’t want to have to remember to tell the app that I’m going to sleep.
I have also NEVER seen anything but 0 minutes to fall asleep, which I know is far from true. I’m sure that has to do with me using the auto mode, but it’s another miss, for me.
If you are going to provide me with a mode to make my life easier like the auto, removing all the features that would be nice to use as a result is a pain.
If all of the features worked with the auto mode this would be a 5 star app, but until then, I can’t possibly rate it above 2.5-3 stars.
Great when it works 1/5
It worked great the first week and after that it’s spotty if it will work. I know the info is being captured bc I have installed 2 other apps and they pick up my sleep. I prefer this one to the other 2 bc it’s gives more info.....when it works.
Good app! 5/5
It’s could use a little longer AI training though.
Love it, but...UPDATED 4/5
By Creekside harmony
I have been using pillow for months. I love the automatic tracking feature and how well it tracks what stage of sleep I am in. The heart rate monitor (apple watch) complements the tracking - with it I can tell if the tracking was correct or off.
My issues are minor, but frustrating. The tracker regular stops tracking between 20 & 30 minutes before I actually awake. So I must edit every session. Additionally, if I do not check the pillow app in the morning, it erases that session... this is frustrating since I cannot hey good tends of sleep per week, etc.
overall it’s a good product except for these few bugs.
UPDATE: please see developers note about finding “lost” sessions... very easy fix. I added another star for the great customer service! What an amazing thing to be able to track your sleep easily, effectively, and accurately!
Very accurate 5/5
By Engineered Insanity
Great app!! I would recommend.
Good app 4/5
I use this app every night and it’s been working great... for me. For some reason, it doesn’t track my wife’s sleep at all. She has the same Watch 4, but the app just shows no signs of sleep in the morning, as if she were awake all night.
Not automatic 1/5
Not worth it.
Doesn’t work 1/5
The app worked great till the last update and now it crashes every time I start the sleep timer and I ended up nearly being late to work because my alarm never went off
Only works half the time.
One day it gets accurate time readings and others doesn’t pick up on sleep at all.
Don’t know if readings are accurate as far as deep sleep, light sleep, REM, or awake.
Ok not perfect 4/5
By the real Lollygoa
Not completely accurate, it doesn’t record the multitude of times I’m conscious of having to adjust the covers because of hotness(menopause) and the times I have to flip over (again aware and conscious) because of shoulder- neck pain as being awake.
Also sound recording should be available in the automatic setting. Idk what is so good about paying for the premium version, a reminder to turn the lights down and go to bed is not worth v much.
