"Having used Thunderspace previously, I expected a good audio experience and I got one. Wind moves from left to right, right to left, hovers overhead. Sometimes a gust seems far away to the right, other times it's whipping just overhead. It's cool that you can often hear what the wind is carrying, too." — Dave Caolo, TUAW

"Windy is what a pop-up book would look like in the digital age if you were to combine it with IMAX audio." — Gannon Burgett, The Industry

"There’s little question Windy has been carefully crafted – she’s a beautiful thing, with some real talented artists and technologists working behind the scenes here." — Paul Sawers, The Next Web

"I absolutely love the wind sounds." — Christine Chan, AppAdvice

Great for concentration


I really enjoy this app. I’ve found the wind soundscapes in Windy to be relaxing and therapeutic without making me sleepy like a lot of the other “rain sounds” apps that I sometimes use. As a graduate student with ADHD, I do a lot of reading and writing, and staying focused can be a serious challenge most of the time. Windy has been remarkable in helping me stay concentrated by giving me some white noise that doesn’t put me right to sleep. The audio is pervasive enough to cover up and muddle most background noise without being droning or repetitive, but it is still peaceful enough to be used for meditation when needed. Windy also lets you choose from several different soundscapes, as well, which I use to match the sound to the weather and time of day outside for an even more natural feel. Definitely an app worth paying for!

Only thing that's worked


I have suffered from insomnia for years. I can't recall how many types of sleeping medications I've taken. They never really worked and just made me feel drugged. I use this nearly every night. I used to dread nights because I knew it would just be another night of tossing and turning. Now I look forward to sleep. It's been years and years since I felt this way. Love it.

Also, I live in a vibrant and noisy household which can make it hard to concentrate while studying. This helps immensely.

Helps me with my tinnitus


Thank you for making these apps. I've tried others, but this app (and the others by the same dev) just have such great sound quality, with or without headphones. Great sounding winds in this Windy app; many other apps tend to have more static wind sounds, whereas here you get the swooshing, soothing kinda winds. Uncluttered interface that lets you mix in rain, water streams etc on all sounds is great. I have severe tinnitus on both ears, the apps by this developer are life savers.
