During the day, Thunderspace won't let you focus on all the noise around you. And at night it will make you very sleepy. Do not use while operating a machine, vehicle or star destroyer.

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.

Changed to 1 star after seeing the individual sounds used to be 69p and they're now *£5.99* on top of the £3 buy in to the app. Scummy pricing tactic to display a false sense of value in the bundle. 👎🏻 Absolute joke.

=== Original review:

There's no doubt this app has some of the best sounds available on iOS. The UI is beautifully crafted too.

However.. the pricing..

First off I didn't expect in app purchases after paying for the app itself. I should have looked more into it beforehand but I bought this before heading off to sleep. I wouldn't have a problem with this alone as the sounds are great. But the prices are incredibly steep for a single sound. I know you're encouraging users to buy the pack but reasonable options here would be nice. And I think you'd get more profit too because I f I bought a single sound for £6 I sure as hell am not spending another £15 for the pack down the line if I already own some of its contents.

Sort it out. Until then I'll recommend Naturespace to everyone which has equally good sounds for a reasonable price.



I absolutely love this app. When I have trouble sleeping, I pop my headphones on , pick a storm, and I'm gone😃 I have all the storms, plus the Halloween special, which be warned is not very relaxing lol, but fun. I have my favourites but love this app . Wish I could afford the wind fans, maybe you guys could send me them to try 😉
Amazing 3D soundscapes. It's the only one I use . I put my star destroyer on auto pilot btw guys lol

Used every night for years


I have consistently used this app every night for years. I got it when I first started uni and was living in a noisy flat, perfect for cancelling out sounds while sleeping. And now just use as it is very relaxing!

Recording quality is fantastic, you really feel like you’re in the scenario that is being described. And there is a lot of variety between recordings. Personal favourites include Park and Road Trip.

Yes you have to pay for some features, but it’s no different than buying an album. A cost per use is so tiny.

Could not recommend enough
