I've read a lot of reviews recently complaining about the the UI. I respect personal preference, but can't help but feel like many of these complaints are a bit unfounded.
I've been using the app for about 3 years now, and have yet to find another that even remotely compares to the quality, creativity, and length of Naturespace tracks. The UI update was fine. Nothing life changing, but nothing detrimental either. The sleep timer is pretty slick once you set it up, which does indeed have several steps, but certainly isn't complicated. Many of her new features are simply visual: prettier, bigger track images and higher saturation, lightening flashes on the screen for those lightening tracks, and a folder based organization system for convenience. Perhaps it's just me, but I didn't notice a difference - at all - with the lack of earbud optimization. It sounds pretty much like it did before the update. I'm a big fan. :)
If I had one complaint, it would be of a lack of new tracks and bundles with the release of this update. Experiencing my old tracks in a new way isn't half as exciting as closing one's eyes, and losing oneself in the magic of a new track. I understand the recording process is extremely time-consuming, but I think I'd have preferred to be blown away with the new tracks and UI update TOGETHER. Some tracks are indeed more three-dimensional than others, but look luck finding an app with equal quality even on hose "flatter" tracks.
Not far enough.
Audio quality has always been good. I say good not great. Some recordings are in stereo but most are not which takes away from the ability to fully immerse in the experience.
I believe newly added to this latest version is the playlist page. Not a bad idea if you choose to divide your recordings up into categories. Disappointing though is the inability to create a playlist that will play in succession. This would be immensely helpful for creating a naturally changing environment throughout your listening session. in other words, most recordings are a loop of fairly similar sound ( light rain or thunder storm or wind swept rain on the window). It would be nice to be able to string three or four of these recordings together, fading from one to the other, to create a more realistic experience. The ability to set a time for the fade in/out and then loop the whole series would be perfection. New audio files much more often would be nice as well. Currently the only positive affirmation or spoken word recording is "the world is new." This is a great file and I'd love to see a series of guided meditation audio.
All in all I find this app one of the best for natural sound re-creation but app functionality is horrible.
There doesn't seem to be a way to delete tracks you no longer want, you can't change the order of the tracks on your list as you used to in the previous version and the timer/transition function is way too confusing.
versatile and high quality
Excellent for relaxing, for supporting focus while reading or writing, for tuning out unwanted sounds and replacing them with something downright lovely. Looping is carefully designed and recordings are detailed and interesting. A broad range of available tracks from bright and active to calm and gentle.
Updated review for new version: a few new free tracks included in this update, which is a nice fillip. The new interface has several usability improvements, looks nicer, and works smoothly. The app size is also noticeably smaller. For an app I use daily, these are all great to have.
For new users, check out the new "suggested uses" section in the IAP catalog for some ideas about which tracks you might like best for different goals. I have some for winding down at night, some for cheering me up, some for feeling cozy... this app is an all-rounder!
