Basically, with resting and sleeping ONLY in this app, my calories burned every day is 1100 calories or so. But if I use calculators online, they tell me that my BMR is 1200-1400 calories. What's going on, why are my calories burned while sleep and rest on this site so low?

We'll need a bit more info to help you out. Height, age and gender are typically factored in to the calculators as well as initial bodyweight.

What you typically want is to enter all your information with no additional activities (selecting sedentary) and omitting any activities, including sleep. This will give you an estimate of your baseline.
