Makes you feel SO tired. Wasn't easy to create this.

You will sleep, relax, meditate and focus better with Windy because Windy masks unwanted noise. Your ears will love Windy because she plays soothing high-quality winds recorded in psychoacoustic 3D for stereo headphones and you can mix in additional nature sounds. Your eyes will love Windy because every ambience comes as a motion-controlled 3D parallax illustration.

Integrates with my other apps Sunny, Away, and Flowing! Seven windy sceneries included.

Let Windy transport your mind to a place far away – In one of the highest quality relaxation apps ever made. By the creator of Thunderspace, Sunny & Away.

"Having used Thunderspace previously, I expected a good audio experience and I got one. Wind moves from left to right, right to left, hovers overhead. Sometimes a gust seems far away to the right, other times it's whipping just overhead. It's cool that you can often hear what the wind is carrying, too." — Dave Caolo, TUAW

"Windy is what a pop-up book would look like in the digital age if you were to combine it with IMAX audio." — Gannon Burgett, The Industry

"There’s little question Windy has been carefully crafted – she’s a beautiful thing, with some real talented artists and technologists working behind the scenes here." — Paul Sawers, The Next Web

"I absolutely love the wind sounds." — Christine Chan, AppAdvice

Don't subscribe or will receive flood of spam mail!


Impressed with the product I subscribed to the mailing list last night and since that time my inbox has received a flood of spam emails offering me countless financial packages and credit cards deals. Really hacked off by this - Deleted app, will not purchase from this chap again and will warn others about this woeful treatment of customers who engaged in good faith!

Update: Excuse me but this is NO false accusation! Subscribed using an email account open for several years with no problem whatsoever. Immediately after subscribing via the app I started receiving spam re car loans, credit cards and charitable foundations. Quite frankly I don't care about your reputation and I had already deleted the app before reading your reply. I only responded to the message as your tone annoyed me almost as much as getting your spam! Please add an unsubscribe option to your site (as is usual practice) as I wish nothing more to do with you. I do however suggest to prevent this happening to others you check your account with mailchimp - something there is obviously messed up if you are really not doing this deliberately!

Developer Response

This is a false accusation. If you do receive spam in my name, someone else is sending it to hurt my reputation. Please forward one of those to me so I can investigate. Thank you.

Perfect for calming down or sleep


Wonderful app which has soft sounds to quieten the mind naturally.
Also includes a sleep countdown timer to switch the app. off after a preset time for when you use the app. To help you drift off to sleep.
The fantastically mesmerising pictures within the app. also seem to almost have a 3D life of their own.
I highly rate this and hope you enjoy as much as I do.

Gorgeous soundscapes


Excellent for background noise for study, relaxing, thinking, doing something creative, calming down, etc. The little Windy story and animals are so lovely and ethereal, it makes me want to go on an adventure! (With this as the soundtrack of course). Good for: people who want to study but get distracted by music or chatter, ambient background noise for sleeping, calming down people and pets (really!)
