Imagine you can immerse yourself in a hyper-realistic thunderstorm any time you feel stressed, need to relax or go to bed. Thunderspace can teleport your mind to a calm place far away from home. Far away from stress. Far away from the noise.
Please note: Thunderspace comes with two top quality hyper-realistic thunderstorms in full length. You can buy extra storms, or get all existing and future storms in a fair priced bundle. You can disable in-app purchases in your iOS settings.

Emmy-award winning nature sound recordist Gordon Hempton and I recorded thunderstorms the way you hear.
Gordon has traveled the world for more than 20 years to record the sounds of nature in 3D. Thunderspace features his best thunderstorm recordings.
All Thunderspace storms are encoded in crystal clear 256 kbps AAC for a top notch audio experience. Combined with realistic lightning flashes, your brain can't help but think the storm is real.
To hear the 3D sound all around you, any stereo headphones will do. The same principle which works for 3D TV also works for 3D sound. Left ear, right ear. It's pretty neat.
You may try Thunderspace over speakers. Though keep in mind that if the sound of the left speaker enters you right ear, and vice versa, you may not hear the impressive 3D effect. This is due to a phenomenon called "crosstalk". We've heard of some customers who were able to hear the 3D sound on their surround system.
The stereoscopic 3D audio in Thunderspace can give you a true sensation of being somewhere else.
Have you ever wondered why you can hear the direction and distance of a sound? The answer is the shape of your ears and the sound shadow your head produces. Your brain decodes these inter-aural time- and level differences to tell you where a sound came from. We managed to record these head-related audio cues in a way that sounds natural over headphones.
Oh, and got some Belkin WeMo Switches + desktop fans? Thunderspace can control them in sync with the storms, so you can feel the wind.

What's New in Version 4.236
+ New: Advanced options panel in iOS Settings.
+ Optionally enable more realistic lightning flashes (more delay).
+ Optionally enable atomic clock sync if you relax with multiple devices in the same room.
+ Russian translation added. наслаждаться!
Since most of you don't need the atomic clock sync, and it consumes extra energy, it is now turned off by default. To re-enable, navigate to your iOS Settings app > Thunderspace.
Now that we have that extra Settings page, we can go ape over advanced settings. Need anything special? Let me know. Meanwhile, I do have a complete remake of the Thunderspace user interface in mind, including a volume control and tighter integration with Windy and Sunny. Stay tuned for more!
I work in a very noisy office, and I usually have a lot of trouble concentrating. But today with the help of this app I was able to truly focus for the first time in ages. I wrote over 800 words in two hours and didn't even realize how much time had flown by! Very soothing. It has also been significantly improving my sleep. I also purchased the extra storm pack and have not regretted it. What an excellent variety of high quality sounds; you will feel like you are really in the middle of a storm.
This professional level audio is unbelievably realistic, especially when connected to some good speakers. I use it for sleep and it's tremendous. The only thing I would request is a really heavy storm to buy, with lots of thunder and even some louder cracks of lightning. I like Water Frogs and Roof Garden but I could use a meaner storm. Great app.
Can't Get Enough of It
I use this app every single night. I love the fact that new sounds are steadily coming in as well. Definitely a must download for whenever I get a new Apple device. Synching the same storm with multiple devices to envelop yourself in a storm without using headphones is freakin awesome, too.
