Thunderspace 5k ~ Focus, Sleep, Relax, Meditate in a thunderstorm with rain and nature sounds

By Franz Bruckhoff

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


During the day, Thunderspace won't let you focus on all the noise around you. And at night it will make you very sleepy.

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.

Customer Reviews

Highly Recommend!!!

Update: Thank you so much for the new storm...Lake Sunny. As always, the sounds in the track are outstanding with no discernable looping. The developer is a rare breed these days. He frequently adds new tracks and is always on top of bugs and iOS updates. Two big thumbs up!!!

Update: The developer paid attention to the reviews and the most recent update restored the original storm names. Thank you!!!

Thunderspace is a beautifully designed app with a wide variety of realistic 3D thunderstorms that have imperceptible looping. The "Rumble Bundle" is reasonably priced and new storms are included on a regular basis. The lightning flashes, which are a cool feature, tend to drain the battery; I usually turn it off after a few minutes. The developer is responsive to emails and quick to submit bug fixes. Two thumbs up!!

Most-used app

I don't write a lot of reviews, but I've had this app through 3 IPhones and I figured it's stood the test of time :) I adore this. As a person with high anxiety, noise & sensory issues, I struggle with falling asleep- especially in my town home with noisy nocturnal neighbors! I was literally in tears nightly when I remembered I'd installed this app and figured I should try to veg out. I loved it so much I bought the expansion pack the next morning. Really worth it, at least to me. The sound is beautiful- you don't have to have it blaring to hear the gorgeous storms. Love the light feature when I am doing yoga and chilling out but glad I can turn it off at night. Kudos!

BEST Relaxation Sounds App Ever!

Summary: Best relaxation sounds app (by far) that I've ever heard on the market!

Perfect fun-to-use user interface. Greatest rain sounds I've ever heard - this app makes you feel like you're literally in the rainstorm! Calming, soothing rain sounds with occasional thunder in the background.

I also bought the in-app Rumble Bundle that gives you ALL the sounds (and any new sounds added to the app in the future)!

I suggest creating a new sound called "Beach House." The ocean waves would be quieter and more soothing than on "Ocean Shore" (which sounds like you're right there on the beach next to crashing waves). "Beach House" would sound as though you were relaxing and drinking a Corona (with lime slice!) on the deck of your beach house as the soothing waves calmly and steadily crest on the beach in the distance maybe 100 yards away, and a little bit of faraway thunder makes it more interesting.

This app is always there to help you when you want to relax, study, fall asleep, read, meditate, or just chillax. Buy it now.
