A sad demise

My previous review from 7 years ago is below, but I upgraded to IOS 11 today and am gutted to see ambiance won’t work any more because it is a 32bit app which IOS 11 no longer supports.

The developer simply says it’s not supported any more and there is no more development, which I understand as I paid for this many years ago and can’t expect unlimited support.

BUT PLEASE consider putting in some additional time on this beautiful app to make it compatible on IOS 11 and let other users experience the quality and (until now) longevity of this awesome app.

I would happily pay for this again as its been a part of my phone for as long as I’ve had it, and it’s only been a few hours since I upgraded but I already miss it!

One last try, please update it to 64 bit 🙏

Good quality sounds and a very large selection which is frequently being added to. You can download the sounds to the phone, but only those you need and the categorise them, rate them, etc
I've downloaded a few of these types of app but this is definitely the best and worth the cost


Who Would have Thought …

… that such a simple idea could be such a lovely thing. It's fab! But it isn't short on more complex settings should you desire them. A lot of this is free: there's no need to make any further payments unless you are feeling wealthy and want to download the premium ambient sounds, which you can certainly do without, as there's so much high quality free content. Most files loop after around 5 minutes, seamlessly! Airplay for streaming to computer or Apple TV (my favourite); or other Airplay device. Use it as you will: those moments of contemplation; tea with friends; K-hole loveliness; and so on. And it's such a bargain!

Fantastic app

Ambiance is a fantastic app, it never leaves my iPhone and iPad and I've been using it in various guises since it first released on iOS. The range of relaxing sounds on offer is fantastic, and the ability to mix sounds together ensures you can always get the effect you want.

The sleep and alarm options mean you can go to sleep or wake up to various relaxing sounds and the multi-tasking of iOS4+ means it can happily run in the background while you surf the web, write emails or even listen to other music!
