I'm relaxed and focused

I find myself always using this app during work because it shuts out all the unnecessary thoughts and lets me focus in my work. They have sounds for different seasons (the summer seriously takes me back to when i stayed in the Japanese countryside for 3 months)
the clinking of iced tea, wind chime, running water and different creatures per seasons. i really love it. I've gifted one to my dad, and coworkers too. Thank you hybrid works!

It's good, but needs an update after iOS 8

I've had this app for a long time, and used to be able to let it run all day in the background as I worked. I found the sounds quite soothing.

However since iOS 8 came out, the app no longer will keep running in the background. It runs for about a minute, then the sounds stop. No crashes, no other issues, the sounds just stop.

This is a great little relaxation app - please update it for iOS8!

Wonderful app!

I seriously LOVE this app. The graphics, sounds, everything about it is incredible!! It's very cute (Kawaii) & relaxing - you guys are amazing for making such a wonderful app! Thanks & please keep up the great work!! I only hope that any Apple updates don't affect this in the future - if so I hope that you update it (this app is too good to lose!)!
