Answers:

  1. Where I should place my iPhone/iPod Touch during sleep?

    • Just place your device on a surface near you (e.g. under sheet) and app will detect the best time to wake you up.
    • Look at all pictures here.

  2. How to interpret the sensitive graph?

    • Graphs (blue lines) show how more you moved while sleeping. High level shows sharp movements, and low - gradual.
  3. How does it handle two people in the bed, with one getting up before the other? Will the first person's movements alter the readings?

    • We've done a lot of testing with two persons in bed. Since you have the phone on your side of the bed your body will actually block the movement signals from the other person on most, if not all, beds.
