Ratings and Reviews

Hypnotic ambient


I like the imageries and the hypnotic ambient sounds. Calming music mixed w radio calls in the background. I've been listening to this app when I study. Find it very helpful for me to relax or to focus.

Well Worth the Money

I purchased this App after hearing about it on a podcast. It is weirdly relaxing, though you might want to pick a city other than the one in which you live so you don't find yourself focusing too closely on what's happening in which neighborhood. I had some technical issues (which ended up being with my device, not the app) and the developer responded to my request for help right away. I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in unusual soundscapes or, of course, anyone who enjoys listening police scanners.

Very cool


I must admit I bought this on a whim, but very glad I did! This is audio art, in the literal sense. Strangely relaxing, despite the First Responder chatter that is typically anything but. It'd be cool to see other cities added (and from other countries/languages,if possible), and maybe a couple of basic fx options for police scanner audio, but that's just nit-picking since the app really works darn good as-is. Good job!
