Thunderspace 5k ~ Focus, Sleep, Relax, Meditate in a thunderstorm with rain and nature sounds

By Franz Bruckhoff

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Don't buy this app! During the day it won't let you focus on all the noise around you. And at night it will make you very sleepy.

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.

Love it!

It does what it says its supposed to do. Uses your led flash for lightning and there's rain and thunder in your ears. Regardless of the time it loops and how SHORT it is, that's the good part!

The part that makes this app "Eh(with a shrug)", is the choice to purchase more tracks for 99c a track. Honestly for that price I could go to a department store and buy a cd with the same sounds (but a better change of sounds) and hook up my strobe light!

EDIT: I love it now. I bought the package and I get more sounds every so often. Also the sounds are longer if you buy them...something I didn't know. I'm leaving my old entry up just so you know I'm legit and not some phony. This app is worth all the hype.

Outstanding !!!

Absolutely stunning ! Hands down, my favorite app. I use it every single night. Couldn't sleep without it. To the creator, you are an incredible artist, and I am truly grateful. I look forward to much more of your work. Thank you.
Update -
This app continues to amaze me. It has become such an important part of my life. It helps me to relax, eases my anxiety and helps me fall asleep. Please keep up the fantastic work you do. I look forward to any storms you add in the future. Many, many thanks to all involved in creating this app !! You have really created a work of art.

Great sound, not 6/6+ optimized

👍🏻 - sounds great, which obviously matters most for this kind of app. Best thunder sounds of all apps I've tried. Kudos!

👎🏻 - a year and a half after iPhone 6/6 Plus introduction, the app interface is still not optimized. Of course, it doesn't matter much in an app that uses all-custom UI, no keyboard, and one you don't look at for more than a few seconds. Still, the fuzziness of the UI is a disgrace. Even more frustrating, the app icon is very fuzzy on the 6 Plus, making me want to hide it in a folder.
