It’s ok 2/5
By Done tapping
After figuring out that you have to give it every permission under the sun *** it works ok. It tracks HR and all your sleep cycles and is a easy to read display. You cannot get any history or in-depth data unless you buy the full upgraded version for $4.99.
***I had to go into additional apps to give permissions so the features in the iWatch would work with the iPhone app. But needed to complete an online search to figure it out. That’s not my issue that was just making potential purchasers aware.
My problem is unless I pay $4.99 which is higher than any other sleep tracking app I cannot compare my history, or get any expanded data. It tells me my best day and worst day, but I cannot go back to see anything about them. What does my quality % mean? How does it compare to yesterday? Cannot tell you because I cannot access that information without paying additional!!!
Kinda good but... 2/5
By Megan Neal•
Pillow does a decent job at tracking my sleep, however, almost half the time, the alarm doesn’t go off in the morning and I’m late for school. It’s very inconvenient that if my phone locks, the app stops altogether and doesn’t work at all. Please fix this and I’ll redownload.
Not Convinced that the Data is correct 1/5
I have Obstructive Sleep Apnea and sometimes Cheyenne Stokes Breathing and I know with my CPAP equipment currently broken !
And Your App. telling me I’m Sleeping like a rock with 50 to 60% Deep Sleep uninterrupted ! Almost every night, I know it can’t be right ! If there was a lead or Bluetooth lead that attached to my body ! I may believe the data it’s putting out , is correct !
When you have sleep apnea for years ! You know how you slept the moment you open your eyes,or look in a mirror at the condition your hair is in ! With the addition of some type of lead I think this could be a great App. To help people detect, if they need to go to a sleep Lab for sleep apnea testing ! But just laying a phone on the bed ain’t selling me on the Data it’s putting out ! I recently had a sleep test at my home overnight, they sent me the equipment a recorder the size of a IPhone and an adjustable paper headband , with two metal buttons inside it ! It performed a sleep Apnea test on me and confirmed that my Apnea stayed the same ! Good luck with your App.
Unfortunately awful 2/5
By Eamonn Donovan
I’ve been using Pillow concurrently with three other sleep apps and it is unfortunately ALWAYS the outlier. I’ve followed all the instructions and searched for ways to alter the sensitivity level to match my type of sleep both to no avail. While the other three apps consistently list me as a restless sleeper, Pillow consistently lists me as awake during most of the night. I don’t think it’s ever computed me as sleeping for more than 65% of nights with the usual night scores of about 40% sleep on average and a few 25%’s too during a few sessions each week. My advice is to find another app until Pillow is updated to cater for different types of sleep.
Bad update 1/5
Hello. Just updated the app since my first purchase in nov 2017. Problem is now it interprets my rem as awake it seems! It actually ask me if it need to re-analyze to reinterpret. I don’t know what happened because I WAS ASLEEP! Whats the point of this if it does not read and interpret your sleep correctly?!? I thought you said it doesn’t need calibration! This completely disrupts my record keeping! Imaging if the heart, weight and blood pressure app just suddenly re-interpreted the information that I gave it?!?! Whats the point of record keeping then?
Please allow the user to revert to the earlier algorithm so that the record keeping and reading remain consistent.
Or return my money and I’ll use an other app.
And yes I’m grumpy because I just woke up to this mess.
Update has worsened app. 1/5
Before recent update, this app seemed to be spot on. Now, it is horribly wrong. Pillow, at best, only shows 1/2 of my personal analysis. EDIT: I stand by my review. I removed your application from my phone with my previous review.
By Beccas Bargains
The last 2 weeks or so, the app crashes and I haven’t been able to use it at all. It was working perfectly before this. I’ve tried deleting and then re-downloading, no luck. Really disappointed, and feel that I wasted my money.
Favorite Sleep App 5/5
By Mister Diamond
Pillow is my favorite app to track my sleep by far. Easy to use, detailed and nice easy to read interface. Highly recommended!
Previous version worked better 3/5
Very disappointed with the new version. The app was working fine before I updated it two days ago. Now, every day, it tells me that it can’t analyze my sleep. First, it was because the permissions weren’t right. Then, it started telling me that the Bluetooth isn’t connected. I’m going to try again tonight. If it doesn’t work, I’m deleting the app. I wish there was a way to revert to the older version 😔
Finally starting to work regularly. Not sure what happened earlier, but I just had to give the app all the permissions and occasionally have issues with some Bluetooth thing. But it works 28 out of 30 days about.
Does not record audio 1/5
I have a snoring problem and bought the premium version to see when and how much I snore. It has not worked once. Keep your money. This app needs work.
No way to get this app to start. 1/5
There was no way to get this app to start. The directions stopped at Bluetooth and nothing happened.
Free is ok 3/5
The only complaint I have is I should be able to look at previous days with the free version. I think it’s a bit pricey in order to see previous days and listen to recordings. Lower your price them maybe I’ll purchase.
Can’t make it work 1/5
By Hawkeye Herkey
I bought the iPhone watch specifically for the sleep analysis function only to find out it was not a part of the watch. I downloaded Pillow and still can’t get the sleep function to work. Very disappointed and will be returning the watch.
Can’t start sleep analysis on Apple Watch 1/5
So I downloaded the app cause I just got a new Apple Watch. The app seems to be working perfectly on my phone but I can’t seem to press start on my watch. It doesn’t do anything. I even upgraded with the extra features thinking that’s why I couldn’t. But I can start it on my phone just not on my watch no matter how many times I hold or just press the start button. Is it still working just on my phone or maybe this is a bug that needs to be fixed? I’m already disappointed and I just got the app. Thanks.
My newest sleep routine! 4/5
This app has helped me control how much and how well I sleep! I have yet to use the caffeine use and other such add ones, but hope to soon. It’s very interesting to see the difference between sleeping in my bed verses other places.
The recordings are useful given I sleep with my window open and it catches the trash truck every Thursday! I’m a heavy sleeper so rarely any noise wakes me up; however, the alarm eases me into a smooth wake! I’ve caught myself, my parents, and another voice on the recordings... kinda frightening.
Overall, an addition to focus on dream journaling would be a super cool addition:)
I have recommended to multiple people!
It’s only “ehh” 2/5
Extremely limited features without purchasing the paid version and it seems very inaccurate overall.
Grossly Inaccurate and Difficult 1/5
I am 5 months into this frustrating App and Apple Watch. Last night it recorded a little over 8 hours in bed but 13 hours sleep but the graph indicated I was awake the whole time!! There have been times that I have gotten up to go to bathroom and then to kitchen for milk but it indicated I was asleep. WORTHLESS.
Helpful data 5/5
Been tracking my sleep patterns with Pillow for almost two years. Last year had some major medical issues related to sleep. Already having data from Pillow to look at trends helped me to sell my case to the Dr. and provide evidence to back it up. With treatment started, I continue to use Pillow every night. When other ask me what I use to track sleep, I am always happy to recommend Pillow.
Too hard to use 1/5
By sleepless in my bed
Why can’t this just sync up to my watch and be done with it?
New Updates 1/5
Does not work
Buy this app or it’s useless 1/5
If you don’t plan on spending $5 then just use another app. It’s useless unless you purchase
Doesn’t work? 3/5
Have yet to be woken up before my alarm is set with the smart alarm technology. Maybe I’m using it wrong. The app is nicely made though.
Good, needs 1 more thing... 4/5
I enjoy using the app on my watch. I find the information generally correlates with my belief of how I slept. I just wish it told me in hours and minutes how much deep and rem sleep I had and not a percentage.
The worst design I have seen 1/5
By David King HAN
The app is really awful, only wanna you to buy premium edition. Not very useful, and UX design is the worst I have seen!
Why do you require access to microphone?! 2/5
I loved this app until it started requiring access to my microphone. I don’t snore. I don’t want this app to access my microphone, so now I can’t use it?! Garbage.
The latest app version is buggy. It's says literally ive been awake 80% of my sleep duration.. really ??
Inaccurate readings. Waste of money.
Not impressed 2/5
I got an Apple Watch to replace a FitBit Charge 2. FB has excellent automatic sleep detection and gave me sleep results that seemed reasonable and trustworthy.
Pillow on Apple Watch needs to be switched on before you go to sleep and switched off once you are awake (assuming you don’t doze off again!). The sleep analysis results are way off. It tells me I am awake when I’m not and gives depressingly low “sleep quality” as a result. I just don’t trust what it is telling me. Pillow paired with iPhone beside the bed is just annoying. I usual charge my iPhone overnight and cannot do that while running Pillow- no nearby outlet.
Sorry, Pillow. I am ditching you.
Pretends like I didn’t turn it on 1/5
This has happened twice. I set it up next to me face down and make sure it’s plugged in and start the app until it has the option to long press and says you have until this time to wake up. It’s worked twice out of the 4 nights. The other two my backup alarm woke me up 5 minutes later. Thank god I didn’t pay. I love the app design and I wanted to pay the premium too but I’m glad I waited a few days to see how in accurate it was. The other two nights were awesome!!! I’m so sad
Not a fan 2/5
Used the Samsung app with that watch and the sleep keeper was easy to use and automatically sensed when I was sleeping. This app is difficult and the last thing I want to do is fiddle with an app before I sleep I have enough problems getting sleep as is. No alarms needed lol
It’s a good app, could be great with some minor improvements 4/5
Would like to show how much time is spent in each sleep stage, along with % and would like app to auto sense sleep. Overall best sleep tracking/alarm app I’ve used.
Night time wake up 2/5
It is not recognizing all the times I wake up at night. I shake my arm, sit up, anything to try and get it to know I am awake. The next morning it does not show up on the graph.
I e app 5/5
Love this app
Pretty good 3/5
The concept is great. The app design is intuitive and really beautiful. The free version has enough features that you aren't left with some half-functional app. Regarding everything but functionality, Pillow is wonderful.
However, I'm not convinced that it's accurately reporting my sleep/awake periods. For example, the past two nights it reports that I spent a large chunk of time (nearly an hour) awake in the middle of the night. I am absolutely positive I didn't. Both of those nights I took a sleep aid before bed, so maybe that changes my motion patterns when I sleep, confusing the app. I don't know. Otherwise, a nice app.
Pillow is the best app available if you want to get a good amount of sleep, worth the amount of $5, you should totally try it, it helped me get a good night's sleep!
By Robert Panek
I would suggest that you include the naps automatically like AutoSleep does
The app was accurate at first. But does not sense when I am awake and reports that I am sleeping when I am definitely awake. I was awake and on my smart watch and phone all night, and it had me asleep for hours in my analysis. What can I do to get it to be accurate? I have an Apple Watch in use with my iPhone.
Doesn’t work 1/5
After I start, I stay frozen on the purple screen forever. Eventually the app then just crashes.
Worked at first 3/5
The app worked great when I first got it, but now when when I wear my watch it says I’m awake all night and when I use my phone it shows me in deep sleep for 10+ hours (which is odd since I only sleep 6-8 hours a night)
By Super Sleepy Bear
I cannot get to the records section. The alarm works fine if it doesn’t cut off in the middle of the night if I get a call or text. I do not get audio or heart info either. I know you have to upgrade to get some features but I decided not to upgrade until I can master the options available as a free app
Does not sync with iPad Pro 1/5
By Evy d
I used this app for over a year and it worked great back in the beginning. For the last several months it won’t sync with my iPad Pro even after deleting and reinstalling it every other day.
Neybox used to reply to my issues, but they don’t anymore. I’m going to delete the app and select another one. I’m frustrated that I don’t get any help from the developers, I guess they don’t care or don’t have the knowledge of how to correct the problem.
What irks me I paid for the premium version, but they ignore my requests to refund my money.
DON’T BOTHER WITH THE APP, ITS NOT WORTH THE TROUBLE.
Not good 1/5
By an onomous
Registered as asleep when I was awake
Doesn’t wake me up at the lightest point 2/5
The entire point of downloading this app was to have an alarm that worked with my Apple Watch and woke me up at the lightest point in my sleep cycle, which this app claims to do. But it doesn’t. It wakes me up by the latest set time, but never before. If I set my alarm for 6 am it only ever rings at 6:00, never during the actual lightest point, even though my watch is monitoring heart rate and movement to do exactly that. I’m not sure if there’s a setting or something that I’m missing, or if the app just doesn’t work like it’s supposed to.
Pillow app 5/5
By Aaminah Wms
I really enjoyed using it because it rates my sleeping ability specially with my lupus and I have insomnia sometimes I think I am sleeping good but I’m really not this app hell really helps out a lot thank you
Sleep data not recorded 1/5
I wanted to track my sleep cycles and was hoping this app would help. I don’t like wearing my watch to bed but was willing to do so to get some sleep data. Turned in all permissions, made sure everything was working and both mornings woke up with insufficient data messages. It’s not worth it. I went to the help page, did all the suggested fixes, and still no results.
Great design but 4/5
alarm doesn't go off when i set a song from my iTunes library to be the alarm. Everything else works though.
Want Mic 🎤 off! 2/5
I will give some kudos as unlike AutoSleep & some ‘Others’ the developers regularly respond to issues!
However I kinda dislike this app from the get go!! You either give them all access or you must place your iPhone under your pillow. But...LUDICROUS that they want unlimited access! SMH!
This app has major privacy issues. Fitbit did a great job of analyzing sleep! They never used a Mic 🎤! People seem to think that they can give unfettered access without consequences? (So misguided.)
AND Sleep goal only available in hour increments? Another misguided idea!
SOOOO GLAD I didn’t buy the useless Premium(LOL) version. Is it Dumb App I’ve downloaded? WTW?
I have noticed that, when I use this app
I feel like wayyyyy better. I love this app!!!
In the still of the night 5/5
By Rover 25054
I really like the audio portion of this app very revealing I am fully satisfied, gave me most of the information I needed. Rock on pillow app 😁
