Comments: This app records and tracks snoring, allowing the user to monitor the effectiveness of different treatment strategies. This app has limited use. It would be most useful for those looking to reduce snoring because of bed partner disturbance. Users can monitor snoring while trialing different snore reduction interventions; however, the free version has very limited sessions. It won’t be very useful if both bed partners snore as it can’t distinguish snorers. I do not recommend this app for those with possible sleep apnoea. It does not replace a proper sleep study and it can’t diagnose sleep apnoea. Please also note that many of the remedies listed on the app do not have evidence of working, such as nasal strips, throat sprays and air purifiers.
Safety concerns: No advice about when to see a health professional.
