Static noise and visuals at your fingertips.
Swish is a static noise generator, useful for calming babies, blocking out unwanted noises, or just adding a bit of static to your life, if that's what you're into!
Many apps use megabytes of storage with enormous recorded loops, leaving less space for your movies, photos, and music. Swish uses the built-in audio of your device to generate high-quality static noise while conserving storage space and battery life.
• Usage Tips •
- Slide the volume to off before switching apps or sleeping your device to disable the background static noise.
- Leave the volume on while switching to another app to hear static noise while continuing to use your device.
- Leave the volume on while putting the device to sleep to hear static noise while your display is turned off.
• Design Advantages •
Swish's visual design also features random visual noise, reminiscent of vintage television displays tuned to a missing channel. To disable this visual while using Swish, just push the sleep button on your phone to deactivate the display.
Swish is optimized to use a minimal amount of your phone's space and processing power. Swish uses CoreAudio to generate random white noise on-the-fly, and the power of your device's graphics card to produce static visual noise very efficiently. Because Swish does not include pre-recorded audio files, it uses only a small amount of space on your phone.
This version restores the ability of Swish to continue playing static noise while in the background. This behavior was inadvertently lost in the 2.0.3 update.
Ratings and Reviews
Too simple to be useful
Visualization part is useless. Although noise is good, no ways to customize or tweak it. No native iOS play/pause integration.
Developer Response ,
Hi there - I'm replying to older reviews since Apple just gave us developers the ability to reply. Thanks for the feedback. The visuals are meant to be a novelty more than anything, though it turned out that some people at least enjoy staring into them while relaxing to the audio noise. Interesting idea to integrate iOS play/pause integration. I agree that would be a nice improvement. I'm adding it to my TODO list for a future update. Thanks again for the feedback!
THE VERY BEST SOUNDING WHITE NOISE
THIS APP DELIVERS WHITE NOISE LIKE NO OTHER. SOOTHING, RELAXING, NON OBTRUSIVE, COMPATIBLE, THESE ARE ALL WORDS I COULD USE TO DESCRIBE THIS APP. THANK YOU DEVELOPERS FOR ONE OF THE BEST SOUNDING WHITE NOISE APPS IN THE APP STORE.
Needs a sleep timer
Works like a charm but it would be nice to have a sleep timer function so I don't have to worry about it running all night.
It would also be nice to have an option that slowly varies the volume higher and lower (within a threshold) to sort of mimic an ocean sound
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
