Portal is an ambient sound app for iPhone with a difference. Inspired by travel, it combines world-class "3D" sound recordings with beautiful visuals and imaginative design to help with focus, relaxation, meditation and sleep.

Ratings and Reviews
Jaw droppingly gorgeous
It’s so obvious a lot of thought and love has gone into this app. From the moment you open it you can’t help but be immersed in the visuals and sounds.
Feels like a step up from any other App I’ve used in a long time, totally at home on iOS but unlike anything else in the App Store.
I am in awe.
Beautiful sounds and images
Visually stunning - a portal into beautiful places with an intuitive easy to use design. The relaxing audio sets this app apart, especially as can be played in the background whilst using other apps. Great for soothing infants!
A rare gem
I’ve tried many different apps to help with my sleep but this the only one that works every time. Simple and intuitive, I can’t wait for future updates
