Thunderspace HD ~ Sleep Relax Meditate in a Thunderstorm with Rain Sounds

By Franz Bruckhoff

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


You will sleep better with Thunderspace because it plays Thunderstorms in 3D for headphones + realistic lightning flashes. You're welcome!

Amazing film and audio demo on

Please note: Lightning flashes currently require a camera flash. Thunderspace is a universal app and runs on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. It 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.

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.

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.

We've encoded all storms in Thunderspace in 256 kbps AAC for a top notch, crystal clear sound 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 work. 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 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 3D stereoscopic 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.

Brought to you by Taptanium, in partnership with Gordon Hempton, the Emmy-award winning nature sound recordist.

Customer Reviews

Updates require restore

The app is great. I liked it enough to purchase the Rumble Bundle in app in January 2014. However, when the developer updated the app recently, the In-app purchase shopping cart appeared for the Bundle I had previously purchased. The developer web page has no instructions or FAQ for this circumstance. On the main screen swipe down from the top and choose Restore. This worked to restore my in app purchase. Very hard to find how to do this and the developers should have some help available on their web site.

Best App I own!

Most relaxing sounds I can imagine. 💭 The ⚡️flashing, 💦 rain, and 🌌 thunder are a perfect combination to make the whole experience more than one dimensional. I purchased the extra package and was truly not disappointed! You can even buy wifi controlled outlets 🔌 to add fans as wind effects. Wow! With quality headphones 🎧 your environment will melt away as you are emmeresed in a far away dream like storm of your choosing. Instantly transports me to my childhood days of camping in the rain. ⛺️ Best app I own hands down! 👐


I love the way that the storm simulator sounds and the lightning flashes are perfectly timed for the intensity of the storms.
My only complaint is that most of the time, if i go to use the app, it will not respond to any tapping or swiping. Ive tried just restarting the app itself and even restarting my device. Nothing works and Ive had many frustrations with this. I hope I am the only one with this as an issue, but I also hope to get some advice.
