Thunderspace 5k ~ Focus, Sleep, Relax, Meditate in a thunderstorm with rain and nature sounds

By Franz Bruckhoff

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


We can't calm the storm. But the storm can calm us.

Join us, over 1,000,000 relaxed Ladies and Gentlemen who immerse ourselves in realistic thunderstorms any time we wish to relax, focus, sleep or meditate.

Join the Thunderspace revolution and experience the great benefits Thunderspace will bring to your busy life.

Thunderspace's spectacular 3D audio sound field reproduction technology delivers a realistic, high quality open space sonic ambience over regular stereo headphones. How so? Think 3D glasses for 3D film. Left eye, right eye. Your brain combines these two images into a 3D image. The same principle works for sound: Left ear, right ear. Thunderspace audio is biomimetic: It reproduces the ambient sound field exactly the way you hear. As if you were there. With interaural time and level differences. The storm rumbles high above you, and the rain falls around you. Once you experience the transportive sonic ambience, you will never again want to go back to simple stereo.

Precisely synchronized lightning flashes, frequent updates with new premium quality thunderstorms, a carefully crafted user interface and highest quality recordings from Emmy-award winning nature sound recordist Gordon Hempton separate Thunderspace from all other relaxation apps.

Thunderspace teleports your mind to a place far away from stress. Far away from the noise. So you can focus on your work, sleep better and relax.

The best app on my phone

Update: Still the best app on my phone, other apps and games have come and gone but this has a permanent place on my phone.

I love this app and I use it every time I take a nap. If I had one complaint it would be that I can't play music (at a lower volume) in the background, I think it would be nice to be able to have low volume music playing behind the sounds.

Relax, Sleep, or just down out the Noise

This app has had a subtle but profound effect on my life. Any time I feel frazzled, distracted, or just can't fall asleep, I reach for the headphones and fire up Thunderspace. Sometimes I use Windy or Sunny, but Thunderspace is the favorite by a long shot. Use the best headphones you can afford because the recording quality is stellar!

Great dev and great app

The recordings are of high quality and the dev has added at least 2 new high quality unique recordings since purchasing.

Highly recommend this app, there's really nothing bad I can say about it. I use it almost daily.
