While there isn’t a lot of different sounds to pick from with the free app, it’s still great! Being able to pick from 4 ( almost the exact same sounds) is still a nice option instead of just having one. There is also a spot to where you can save your “mixes”. But my favorite part is setting a timer! And not just a 5 minute timer, a 2 hour timer so I can fall asleep to it! Or even an 18 hour timer so I can just keep it going for a whole spay day!

I could sleep before I had this app

To my peeps

Yesterday in the middle of the night and I got so bored and was mentally exhausted. I decided to google bored button, a website I go to when I’m bored, then I came across this and instinctively felt relaxed so I went to the App Store and download the app after that I fell straight asleep. And I love how I can make my own relaxing sounds from a peaceful day at the coffee shop to a great storm. The buy is definitely worth it. 🤗

Very nice!


I have a bunch of ambient tracks stuffed away in an album that I use to sleep with. This app is much quicker to open and get running, and I don't have to think about making sure my repeat settings are set up correctly. One suggestion I would make is to add a running water sound, like a creek/stream. I would absolutely throw down for the in app purchase to unlock that.
