Great Free App
Works on a wide range of OS versions has a nice set of sounds; price for more sounds is not high either. Quality of the sound is excellent. App design is excellent including how it animates to show you were the app is located -- likely something that was added after the bad reviewers didn't notice where the app resides. For FREE this is the best app. It is not overblown and does it's job well; hopefully it doesn't end up with too many features which detract from it's purpose. I will probably buy the pay version I am just waiting for some months to see if the app has any quirks that cause troubles.
The one thing I would like to see is a setting to have it stop when the display goes to sleep (instead of just times) so that it isn't running all day while the monitor sleeps.
Does what it's supposed to do and well
The app never opened, but left a sound of waves that wouldn't stop until I restarted the computer.
