NiteFan is a white noise app that allows you to fall asleep to the sound of a fan.

Do you FANcy falling asleep to the sound of a fan? Well, that’s FAN-tastic! The sound of a fan is calming and blocks out other sounds in the room to help you fall asleep. You probably FANtasize about being about to take your fan with you when you travel, don’t you? Sometimes that’s just not possible. But never fear! If you’re a fan FANatic, this app is for you!

This app will allow you to choose between the sounds of 4 different fans to help you fall asleep when your head hits the pillow. Play one type of fan or mix them together to create your own custom fan sound. Mix characteristics to your fans such as clicks and wobbles. Add the sound of rain for a more relaxing mood.

Fan sounds include a box fan, an oscillating fan, an even-toned fan, and a fan that sounds like it's blowing the sheets. Extra characteristic sounds include clicks, rain, and electric wobbles.

The sounds will play in the background, so you can lock the screen of your phone and still hear the sounds as you fall asleep. The sounds will play until you stop them in the morning. No internet connection is required.

This is a great app to have when traveling because bringing a fan with you usually isn't usually feasible. It is also a great source of ambient noise that you can turn on whenever you need to work without distraction. And finally, it’s also a great way to just sit back and relax to a calming sound when you need to unwind. How does anyone sleep or relax or concentrate without NiteFan in their lives? We have no idea.

I have an idea

I'm sure everyone has a favorite fan that they like falling asleep to right? The problem with all of these apps is that we are given multiple fan sounds from "someone else's fan". I try falling asleep to them, but it's never as good as the sound of the one in my bedroom! Can you add a fan sound recording option? (Then we can just put it on loop). What would really go above and beyond would be if people could share thier fan sounds (with the make and model), and have them avail for download. Thank you for making this free, and God bless!

I've experimented with this option before and now that you've mentioned it, I will try to add it in the future. Thanks for your suggestion!

Works now!

Update: All fixed now and I am back to using it every night! I love it!

I've been using Nitefan for quite some time and have loved it! However, it stopped running in the background. Huge con if you want it to play the fan sounds all night. Please fix this bug so I can use my favorite white noise app again!

I know that you wrote this a while back, but as developers, we were just given the ability to reply to these comments. Can you let me know if you are still having trouble with the app not running in the background? You can email me at shana@hitechmom.com

I've been hoping to find an app with fan sounds instead of the distracting pink/brown/white noises you commonly find in other apps. I have a Honeywell air purifier in my bedroom and I simply CANNOT sleep without it!! Fan #3 in NiteFan sounds identical ☺️ NiteFan's other sounds are also lovely and the app couldn't be simpler to use. Thanks so much!!
