Seems like you can’t. It’s annoying more than anything and there should be an option to disable.
I’ve used this app for years and for the most part it’s been great. Like many other reviewers, I’m very unhappy with the change in the DND functionality. Also this app has been crashing in the middle of the night with increasing frequency, so when I wake up it is as though I never set the alarm, or the tracker shows that I woke up whenever it crashed. Also, sometimes when I try to turn the alarm off, there is some kind of glitch where the slide off thing doesn’t work and instead the screen goes black or my phone locks and I have to reopen and slide repeatedly before it registers. I really wish technology went more with the “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” philosophy. Alas. This world is not designed for me, although it used to seem like Sleep Tracker was.
My niece turned me onto this app years ago because she said it can track your sleeping patterns and wake you up at the right time. I don't know how much of my working life I've spent being tired, but just the last few nights I've been using this I can tell a difference in the way I feel when I wake up. This app is great and I look forward to using it for a long time. Edit: They’ve recently added sound tracking so it’s easy for me to correlate my awake periods with my partner’s snores. We’ve had a power outage recently and she had to bring her cats to my place since I have power. The sound tracker hears their midnight meows as a baby fussing or crying. I suppose that’s how cats evolved to sound, but there’s no option to change the sounds to “Cats” because it’s not on the list.
TRY this app!!! This tool has only gotten better with time and I have been using it for YEARS now. I used to be the person who set 5-10 jarring alarms each morning and could not sufficiently wake up for any of them. Quite literally would hit snooze and sleep through every single one of them. The technology here is so simple but it has improved my sleep health significantly. Waking up is less grueling and their sleep aides are like nothing you’ll find on YouTube. A very special app that I never plan on not using :^)
Several features, such as picking the alarm sound have been gated behind the membership tier. Also with the latest update there is a pesky banner on the top, now prompting you to upgrade to it's premium membership. Seems quite tacky. The paid features should be enough to warrant the price without having to resort to removing features that were once free, or placing more advertisements inside the app. Hopefully the app continues to provide the free basic functionality its always offered in the near future.
I’ve had this app for years but the quality goes down each update. The snoring detection is highly inaccurate now - it said I had 22 minutes last night but every single playback was solely city or electric sounds (train brakes, semis on the freeway, my fiancé’s alarm going off, etc). And there is no way to update it so that it knows to ignore those sounds in the future or to correct your sleep stats. It also “hears” this and often says it took me something like 90 minutes to fall asleep when I was out in 3. Essentially the stats are highly unreliable and this app is only good for the wake up window.
This is a fantastic app that has changed the way I view sleep and my life. Next steps should be to make the Apple Watch app an accurate sleep tracker that measures the different stages of sleep. This will help tremendously and allow us to track REM sleep/deep sleep.
I’ve been using this app for several years now and it was always very reliable, if I set the alarm it went off at the time I needed it. But not anymore. Now it crashes every time, and has blown me through several alarms that I set without functioning properly. As an attorney who depends on a solid alarm system, it is very disappointing that I can no longer rely on this app. Now I have to use the iPhone alarm itself, which I know is reliable.
The sounds and meditations that are supposed to get you to sleep or interesting, but not that helpful. The data that they give you the tracks your sleep all through the night is really very very fascinating. Although I don’t think it’s very accurate but keep in mind I sleep with my wife and I imagine that this software also tracks her sleep too so it’s a bit confused.
