  1. More Sleep talk functionality

    I use this minimally to monitor snoring, but my main focus is for sleep talk recording. I love listening to the random weird things I say at night as a very active sleep talker. I would love to be able to automatically separate snoring recordings into their own folder or section based on your algorithmic process for it so it would allow me to more easily find my sleep talking.
    Currently, as far as I know, my options are to weed though the recordings and see if things have talking in them. I realize I can see the tags for…

        Hello, plan to address this, in the mean time there is a simple workaround, disconnect your Pebble and the app will connect to your mi band..In fact we try to connect to all wearables available and the first connected is used for sleep tracking..

      • use PIN to dismiss alarm

        Sometimes the alarm will wake people nearr the user but not the user. Meaner people might dismiss the alarm without waking up the user. With the above function, people around the user can't dismiss the alarm without waking the user up if the alarm goes off.

            Hello, unfortunately Samsung is blocking this at the moment. They don’t allow third parties to develop for the Fit 2. Only pre-selected partners can write apps, we are now investigating how we could become a partner but it is very hard to deal with them..

          • Change volume for sonar

            If we can set the volume for sonar tracking that would be better. Sonar is supported on most devices (probably all) but the automatic volume setting doomed our hope for contactless tracking. That thing made my sleep chart went blank. Hope you accept my idea

            • Donate to Support Development

              I would love to somehow be able to donate money to be able to support future development of this app. I already purchased the unlock a long time ago and since then so much has been added and improved. A project of this scale can't be easy to manage financial wise, so I would love to be able to donate a small ammount every month or so to help with the continued development of this, and maybe even other projects.

                Hello Dave, big thanks for your support and encouragement. We do very much appreciated that. We try our best to improve the app over time. Big thanks for purchasing the license of our app in the first place which is a valuable reward for us already!

                If you still insist on some further donations – and of course we are really grateful for any help or encouragement of any kind – in general we do not have a facility for such kind of donations in place, but we use my PayPal account petr@nalevka.com for irregular expenses such as paying for short terms contractors or digital goods. So in case PayPal would be find with you this would be a way.

                Big thanks and most of all the best in 2017..

                • Direct Boot for Encrypted Phones

                  When an encrypted phone reboots, notifications and alarms don't go off until the phone is unlocked. With Android 7, Direct Boot was released to allow apps to partially function before the phone is unlocked so that alarm apps will still function (https://developer.android.com/training/articles/direct-boot.html). This would ease my fear of my phone randomly restarting in the middle of the night and Sleep not being able to go off.

                  • Check if I'm awake!

                    10 minutes after you alarm goes off and you dismiss it a notification shows up (vibrates) in saying "are you awake?" In case of falling to tap on the notification the alarm turns back on and tries to wake you up again cause it knows that you have falling back to sleep.

                    • The ability to select the heart rate tracker you want to use for HR tracking.

                      The current, random selection of a Bluetooth device can be frustrating if you have multiple Bluetooth devices in range of your phone. I propose a menu to choose which Bluetooth device you want to use to monitor your heart rate.

                      Thank you in advance!

                        Many thanks, we should improve here, but please note that we only connect to devices in range which have HR service, after we first successufully get HR from a device we use that device next time when we connect without a new search among near by devices.. only if we cannot connect we search again..

                        • Record the lux (amount of light) at the time of alarm (or possibly at each sampling time)

                          The amount of light in the room affects the quality of sleep (because of SCN and melatonin and stuff) so recording the amount of light (lux) in compatible phones can provide additional information for sleep quality improvements

                              Hello,

                              thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately Gear S2 has issues with battery life when doing a full night tracking sleep. It losses around 80% of battery per night. Samsung asked us to remove support for S2 from the Galaxy store. We are working with Samsung now so see whether we can return the app back to the store and if there are some technical solutions. Unfortunately we cannot distribute the app outside of Galaxy app store as this is a signature restriction build in by Samsung. If you would like to try this anyway we have published the app package here:
                              http://sleep.urbandroid.org/more/download/

                              To install the beta addon, please see the how-to guide.

                              Please check here for details on wearables:
                              http://sleep.urbandroid.org/documentation/integration/wearable/

                              We did reapply the app back to Galaxy Store now, they refused it already, but we have re-applied with comments and now waiting for their response..

                            • Custom bedtime notification

                              Allow custom text for the bedtime notification per alarm so a user can effectively create a to do list before going to sleep.

                              • Track how long it takes to solve math captchas

                                A while ago, I participated in an informal experiment on fat consumption and brain function that tracked arithmetic speed as an index for changes in mental function. (You can read about the experiment at http://quantifiedself.com/2011/01/results-of-the-buttermind-experiment/) Also when I've slept better, it is obviously easier to solve the math snoozes.  Since I am doing all these arithmetic problems almost every day anyhow, I would love to know how many problems it takes every morning, and how long it takes to solve each problem.

                                    I would love to see a feature that could allow you to modify the wake up time by predefined ways. For example, when I know I will need to take a shower that takes me 15 minutes, I simply click a "shower modifier" icon which subtracts 15 from my alarm. Or when I have to walk the dog - mínus 30 minutes... You could combine the modifiers and toggle them at any time.

                                      Right now the audio wave shown is the full width of the screen but the playback bar is not. They should match. There is no good reason we should not see the bar crossing spikes in the bar as we hear the sound spike. It is unintuitive and disconcerting that they don't.

                                        • Smarter Time to Bed

                                          Please allow "time to bed" notifications for poly phasic sleepers. For instance, my ideal sleep is set for 7 hours, I achieve this by two 4 hour blocks with 1 hour smart wake up timers. I'd like to set my time to bed notification should go off 4 hours before my alarms, not 7 hours before.
