appsWhat Are Snoring Apps?

Snoring apps are applications which run on mobile phones that can help tell you if you snore, how much you snore and often allow you to track the causes which may be contributing to your snoring.

Snoring apps are useful for people who want to know if they snore. They are also useful for people who know they snore that want to understand the underlying causes of their snoring.

If you are interested in treating your snoring, you will want to use a snoring app. Snoring apps allow you to study your own sleep at home each night. When using a snoring app, you should plug it into a power source, recording all night could drain your battery before the recording as finished.

What Matters In A Snoring App?

There are many different snoring apps on the market in app stores for both iPhone and Android. Each comes with its own specific angle on addressing the snoring problem.

The most important factor in a snoring app may be different for each person but in general the following should be considered:

  • Does the app allow recording for more than one night?
    • You will want to track your progress over time.
  • Does the app allow adding various remedies and factors to each recording session?
    • This is important to track progress of cause and effect. If you cannont store this information in the app, you will need to store it somewhere else and this can make tracking snoring progress more difficult.
  • Does the app easily allow me to share the information it records with medical professionals?
    • Having the ability to send an email with your results can be useful.
  • Is the cost justified?
    • Will you be able to get the information you want out of the app?
  • Can the app be adjusted to record at different decibel levels?
    • If you sleep in an noisy environment like near a street, you may need to adjust the threshold so that it doesn't falsely think you are snoring.

Limitations Of Snoring Apps

There is currently no snoring app that can distinguish between different people in the room. If you want to use a snoring app, it is best to either have that person be alone in the room or know that the other person or people in the room do not snore.

Additionally, snoring apps record all the sound in the room. If you live next to a busy street, the snoring app may detect that you were snoring when in reality, it was noise from traffic outside. Therefore, the best way to use a snoring app is to be in the quietest room possible.

Snoring apps do not make recommendations on how to stop snoring. They simply show you how loud your snoring is and when it occurred. This information is very useful when you combine it with information you log related to factors and remedies but realize, a snoring app can only make basic suggestions.

Recommended Snoring App

From the apps we have experienced, SnoreLab is the best app for recording snoring at night. It has visualizations of each night and gives you a snore score. This is a useful way to see if you snore at night. Snoring can occur briefly or the whole night, SnoreLab can clearly show you when and how loud you are snoring.

SnoreLab is the most expensive snoring app that we have reviewed or seen on the market. This price is not high for anyone who is committed to know if they snore but it should be pointed out that it is expensive as far as apps go.
