Upset with the designer

I got this app when it first came out, perhaps five or six years ago. I remember using it several times when I was hospitalized with cancer treatment. I even think I did a review although at the time there was no "lite" version, or perhaps I paid for it: it was a while ago.

I had quite a few sounds downloaded and set to my liking. At one point, everything was wiped out due to an update. I redownloaded my favorites, set it all up again. While I'm still undergoing cancer treatment, I haven't needed it that much, fortunately been away from the hospital. I was very unpleasantly surprised to discover that once again my sounds are gone, with a notice I can only use three and I only have access to the lite version.

While I understand and agree with the desire to make money, those of us who were with the app since its inception should not have to lose our sounds and repay. Needless to say, I will not be buying something I already had.


Best White Noise App on the Market

Ambience is the best white noise app on the market, not only for the quality and variety of sounds available, but also for the elegant design and number of features. The ability to fully customize sounds by choosing which sounds to download and having the opportunity to create custom mixes really blows away the competition. The only reason that I give the app four stars instead of five is because it crashes often when previewing new sounds. The frequent crashing is annoying, and it would be nice if the developers could fix this issue, but overall it is a small price to pay for the great features on this app.

Best ambient sound app I've tried

I've tried out about 10 ambient sound apps and this one blows them all out of the water. Everything you could possibly want, from a plethora of rain and running water sounds, bird noises and waves crashing, to bizarre things like mud volcanos, power lines humming and arcade noises. The only other app that comes close is Relax Melodies, and even that one doesn't have anywhere near as many sound options. This is definitely worth the $2.99 to upgrade to the paid version so you can download more than 3 tracks at once.
