What is it about?
Pillow features a beautiful design and it makes sleep tracking rather interesting. They claim to have the most advanced algorithm for sleep tracking, which should provide you with some of the most accurate results yet. Over time, you will gain valuable insight into your sleeping habits and patterns, since Pillow will provide you with detailed statistics. The app even records sounds while you sleep, in case you've ever wondered if you snore or talk in your sleep. There is also support for analyzing short naps and sleep sessions, so it's not just a full night's rest. You can use the app's alarm clock feature to also wake up in the best phase of your sleep, which leads to more restful mornings. If you want basic sleep tracking, then the initial download should have you covered, but more features are unlocked through the Premium upgrade.
