Thunderspace ~ Rain & Thunder

By Franz Bruckhoff

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


During the day, Thunderspace won't let you focus on all the noise around you. And at night it will make you very sleepy. Do not use while operating a machine, vehicle or star destroyer.

We can't calm the storm. But the storm can calm us.

Join us, over 1,000,000 relaxed Ladies and Gentlemen who immerse ourselves in realistic thunderstorms any time we wish to relax, focus, sleep or meditate.

Join the Thunderspace revolution and experience the great benefits Thunderspace will bring to your busy life.

Thunderspace's spectacular 3D audio sound field reproduction technology delivers a realistic, high-quality open space sonic ambience over regular stereo headphones. How so? Think 3D glasses for 3D film. Left eye, right eye. Your brain combines these two images into a 3D image. The same principle works for sound: Left ear, right ear. Thunderspace audio is biomimetic: It reproduces the ambient sound field exactly the way you hear. As if you were there. With interaural time and level differences. The storm rumbles high above you, and the rain falls around you. Once you experience the transportive sonic ambience, you will never again want to go back to simple stereo.

Precisely synchronized lightning flashes, frequent updates with new premium quality thunderstorms, a carefully crafted user interface, and highest quality recordings from Emmy-award winning nature sound recordist Gordon Hempton separate Thunderspace from all other relaxation apps.

Thunderspace teleports your mind to a place far away from stress. Far away from the noise. So you can focus on your work, sleep better and relax.

The best of the bunch

I’ve got nearly all of the various apps that simulate rain, thunder, oceans, wind etc. I’ve been a fan of soothing background sounds since the days of the “environments” records, and their effects on sleep, and being relaxed but focused during the day. This app is the best I’ve heard, from an acoustic standpoint, as well as aesthetically. Yes, headphones are best, but the newest iPads with four speakers do it justice, I put it on next to the bed and it helps both me and my wife fall asleep more quickly. If your feeling stressed at work this app is highly effective at calming you down, without interfering with your concentration. Highly recommended!!!

Good, but not a fan of the DRM.

It's a good app, I enjoy listening to it, but $2 for an app that only replays 2 storms seamlessly is kind of...I don't want to use the term "overpriced", but I'll use the word unnecessary. I understand that the developer spent a lot of time trying to create this app and to make sure it works well. But $17 for unlocking everything in a paid app is kind of pointless. Two storms isn't enough for the price, honestly.

Wish I could've known that before I purchased the app. It was somewhat my fault, though. Since I didn't look at the in-app purchases. I'd love to listen to all the storms (besides the 30-second demos), but it's something I won't spend $17 on.

OMG I'm in a storm!!!

Wonderful storm and rain sound track. It really is the best sounding storm app I own. I love the ultra real, stereo sounds!

I use this while working and find it helps me focus and ignore the noise around me The stereo storm sounds pull me into the storms. Simply better than other storm-sound apps.

Its really hard to hear the looping as the tracks seem long enough. This makes it far more enjoyable and real. I know easy to spot looping is a problem for with other rain apps.

The purchased sound additions are worth the money as they sound AMAZING!

One thing I wish this app had was a way to overlap two storms (or general rain sound) that way each time I listen I would feel unique

Love this app!
