For each sleep session the calculates a snore score, which is a measure of snoring intensity, and provides a report showing when and how loudly you snored, with a selection of audio samples. The app is helpful for people with snoring problems, to assess their snoring patterns. It may be useful to assess the impact of snoring remedies or other lifestyle changes (reduction in alcohol intake, weight loss, medications) on snoring.
