Description

Improve focus and relieve stress with SoundShade's relaxing sounds.

Choose from 10 existing templates or create your own by freely combining any of the 38 sounds, including: Rain Sounds, Bird Sounds, Ocean Sounds and many more sounds of nature.

Replace the distracting noises around you. This unique application allows you to virtually place the sounds in your surroundings – front, back, left and right. (available as In-App Purchase).

We recommend headphones for the true surround sound experience but the app can also be used without them.

Everything you hear in SoundShade has been carefully handcrafted based on existing research that studies the negative effect noise has on work performance; such as reading, writing and numeric tasks. This means you wont be distracted or tired by SoundShade. This results in effortless listening - allowing you to remain focused for longer whilst listening to your favorite sounds.

Genius app

ZotDudot7

Very helpful and creative app.

Couple of things:
- When moving sounds around there seem to be a couple of blind spots (or should that be deaf spots) where the sound is barely heard in one spot but if you move it a touch to the side and you can hear it much louder.
- It would be nice to have moving sounds (i.e., sounds with an acoustic trajectory). These could be sounds of objects that aren't usually stationary (e.g., cars, airplanes, etc.). The trajectories could be chosen directionally (west to east, north to south, etc.) or their paths could be swiped on the screen and saved.
- The cat purring is way too loud (even in the distance). 🙀
- More sounds please!

Surprising…

I have a couple ambiance apps but this is the easiest to use. The surprising bit is how much of a difference it makes to be able to place the sounds. Volume _and_ location. Japanese bells low to my left, birds off to the left kind of like out by the next house as opposed to right outside, a thunderstorm off in the distance on right-ish, and a fireplace crackling at a very low level.

You only go into a menu (panel) to choose sounds. Otherwise with the app open you can slide things around and get that balance. Something feels a bit too loud? Push it out further. Emphasize something for a bit? Slide it in. Feel the storm should have moved? Slide it over or push it far out.

Very nicely done.

Nice

Very configurable, I really like that I can create my own customized white noise. Each layer can be moved to the right or left ear, or varying degrees of both, as well as in front or behind your head as far as you want by just dragging and placing the individual icons. Plus I got all sounds for free today via appgratis. Can't beat that.
