Thundergod - The Naturespace Thunderstorm Collection
By Holographic Audio Theater
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
For most of human history and across myriad cultures, the thunderstorm has struck fear and awe into the heart of man, and was attributed to the actions of the mightiest gods. With Thundergod, Naturespace brings you the mystical power of the sky and some of the deities that were named to explain the unexplainable. Thundergod was recorded entirely by the Naturespace engineering team using the latest HD recording technologies and proprietary holographic microphone techniques that provide a true "being there" experience. The five masterfully crafted, seamless loops are designed to create steady states of different intensities, environments and moods while conveying a sense of the supernatural; from the most intense thunderstorm to a gentle rain into water.
Over the last 4 years we have captured more than 65 thunderstorms throughout the U.S., including Montana, Colorado, Florida, Wisconsin, Illinois, North Dakota, Texas and Kansas. Like everything in the Naturespace catalog, the locations matter. It's not enough to simply recreate the sound of thunder. It's the paths the thunders travelled across the skies over a multitude of landscapes. From open fields to deep canyons and lush forests, we have chosen the best lightning strikes, thunder, rain and environments to bring you the ultimate thunderstorm experience. Listeners consistently report sensations beyond hearing, such as the feel of raindrops on the skin, or the sensation that the ambient temperature lowers. Thundergod delivers the finest recreation of being in a thunderstorm available. But it goes beyond that...
There is very little in our daily lives that resembles the past. Nature however, is timeless. So it's not just about thunder as it is today, but about how it has always been. Download Thundergod and travel not only to a new place, but a different time, when gods ruled the world.

Best 10 bucks I ever spent
it may be a little pricier than other apps, and I actually misread the price thinking it was 99 cents. I cussed a little under my breath when I realized I had just paid 10 dollars for one app. but after I starting using it, I realized how much I love it! I LOVE thunderstorms, this plays 5 different kinds: loud thunder wind and rain, lighter thunder with heavy rain, rainstorm at sea, rainstorm in the forest, and just steady rainfall.
I love the first one called "Thor" because I'm a storm lover, but I switch between the others based on my mood. it's extremely realistic and has a long track time because I rarely hear anything that sounds the same. and it always starts at a different place if that makes sense, just adding to how realistic it is. hands down the best way to listen to an artificial thunderstorm. I don't my phone on my ihome just about every night, and cuddle and close my eyes and I'm just astounded. if you love going to sleep to thunderstorms, you will want to have this app. you won't be sorry.
high quality but needs an option to customize
The sound quality is the best you will find for storms as far as realism is concerned. My only complaint is I wish there was an option to remove the wildlife sounds from the tracks, IE the frog sounds. The 1st couple times you hear them it's ok, however you'll soon realise everytime you hear them you become aware you are listening to a looping sound track thus killing the experince for me anyway. Still despite the slight annoyance I feel it's still worth the investment, but adding this option would make this a 5 star app and then some. It should be noted although there is little room for improvement, I have yet to see an update released. You would think for such a high priced app the dev would atleast add a few enhancements if not an extra track or two.
Happy in the Rainstorm
Before I bought this app, I was unsure about it. I knew I loved the free Naturespace app, and I do love thunderstorms, but still... Ten bucks? So I looked at the price, and then I looked at the ratings. Then I looked at the price. Then I looked at the ratings. Then I bought it. And then, after only one night of listening, I rated it five stars, just like everyone else. You do realize that an album on iTunes typically costs more than ten bucks right? Well, this has at least an albums worth of audio on it. And it has, BY FAR, the best sounding storms I have ever heard. I use it almost nightly, I've had it for months, and I have easily gotten my money's worth many times over. I hope this helps you with the ten dollar dilemma that faces you now. Just do it. I bet you end up rating it five stars too.
