Snore Lab

January 6, 2021

Description

The Snore Lab 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 trying out different snore reduction interventions; however, the free version has very limited sessions. The app will not be very useful if both bed partners snore as it can’t distinguish snorers. 

 

Overview

The app enables the user to record and track their snoring. The user places their mobile device at their bedside, and the app records their snoring. For each sleep session, the app calculates a snore score (a measure of snoring intensity) and provides a report showing when and how loudly you snored including a selection of audio samples.

 

Pros

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 (e.g., reduction in alcohol intake, weight loss, medications) on snoring.

 

Cons

The free version of the app has very basic features and in-app advertising. The user is encouraged to upgrade to the paid version ($8.49). The app is not suitable if there are two snorers in the room. The app gives no advice about when to see a health professional.The app does not replace a proper sleep study, and it cannot diagnose sleep apnea. Many of the remedies listed on the app do not have evidence of working, such as nasal strips, throat sprays, and air purifiers.
