What does the app do?

The app enables the user to record and track their snoring. By placing your mobile device at your bedside, it records your snoring. For each sleep session the app 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 for assessing the impact of snoring remedies or other lifestyle changes (eg, reduction in alcohol intake, weight loss, medications) on snoring.

The free version of the app has basic features and in-app advertising. The user is encouraged to upgrade to the paid version ($8.49) to access additional features, including data export and an ad-free option.

Note: The app is not suitable if there are 2 snorers in the room. For a more detailed description of the app, see Google Play or iTunes and, for a detailed review, see Reviews.
