    Is great
  • Meh

    By TheaterLover
    Does the sleep thing fairly well, though I wouldn't bet my life on its sleep-awake-REM results. Cheerful colors but sloppy execution. Turned off notes months ago, but they still show up, wildly Inaccurate. Connection with Apple Watch occasionally conks out, readings for beginning of week don't show, time that I went to bed graph has fallen asleep, and the app stopped outputting sleep info to linked app this morning. If there are better low-cost options out there, I'm listening.
  • Heart rate numbers in correlation to sleep quality

    By donearlw
    I really like the app, but the view showing the relation of sleep quality to heart rate doesn’t make sense. The heart rate looks like a random number that peaks at around 80 and goes down to about 40. I wear my Apple Watch at night. The corresponding heart rates in the health app never get as high as 80 and usually don’t reach 60 during my sleep time even in the awake intervals. My resting average is either in the 40s (usually) or low 50s. My series 4 watch agrees well with my Omron BP unit as well as other checks. How is the pulse rate generated for the plot. The support page for pillow doesn’t shed any light on this.
  • Don’t get!! Waste of money!!

    By JR1687
    This app doesn’t work, I have it to track automatically and I gave it two chances and neither worked, I even payed the $5 for the premium. Unless I’m doing something wrong but I don’t think so, I have both the iPhone and Apple Watch to track my sleep automatically and it’s still not working. Before anyone says anything, It also has all the permissions it needs to work.
  • Doesn’t detect I’m awake even when I’m walking to the bathroom

    By PeanutinGJ
    Bummed with this app. Sad I paid for it because it doesn’t even register that I’m awake walking around the house (wearing the Apple Watch). Says I’m asleep all night long. Sleep cycle is a lot more accurate and you don’t have to wear your watch to bed.
  • I don’t understand all the positive reviews?!

    By Dezsell
    I have been using the premium version of Pillow for weeks, with my phone and Apple Watch using manual mode. It is terrible at knowing when I’m awake. It tells me I slept all night, every night, even when I wake up to use the restroom in the middle of the night. If I use the feature which allows me to re-analyze my sleep session to look for more awake time, it just adds more light sleep and still never picks up the fact that I was actually up walking around, wide awake in the middle of the night. It also has had hiccups twice this week in syncing my watches data with my phone so there are two nights for which my phone never got the data from my watch. My optimal sleep time jumps from 9:45 to midnight and back. (Again, I have only been using this app for a couple of weeks so this seems like a terrible algorithm.) And all of this is especially weird considering I have very regular sleep patterns. I go to sleep and wake up around the same time every day, sleep a solid 8 hours per night, (in bed about 8.5), and rarely get up or even wake up in the middle of the night - like maybe once per week. I’m going to switch to automatic mode for a while and see how we do but I wish I didn’t spend money on this.
  • Ok at best

    By Alex_MMC
    The app UI is fine but the accuracy of the app is poor. It shows you are asleep even if you are just reading in bed. ‘Time asleep’ always ends with a ‘9’ (eg 7hrs 39mins) - assume that is a bug. I miss my Fitbit app.
  • N/A for sleep quality

    By Kaypfl
    I regret purchasing the premium app and wish I would have just kept the free version. After the first night of sleeping I tried to view my sleep quality and sound, which it said that I needed to purchase the premium to view. I purchased the premium (I typically do not for any app!) and still for every night it shows N/A for sleep quality, biggest reason on why I purchased it. Also for the sound it records a lot, but 90% of them are just white noise and nothing that is beneficial. Best advice, don’t waste your time on purchasing.
  • Could be better

    By elizabeth1bug
    I use the app every night and for every nap, but there are features that I wish were available. There’s no way to see your trend of daily sleep. Also the average sleep is based on sleep sessions and not on days. This isn’t ideal for napping.
  • The pay version

    Don’t bother paying for this version, just go with the free app. Only parts of it work. When you try to get it to work, you hit the renew button for those who paid for all the bells and whistles, but it doesn’t work.
