Nice but Missing Some Things

This is a very good ambient sound app with a clear and intuitive interface that’s also interesting to look at. The clock feature is a useful addition and adding sounds via download or self-creation is simple and straightforward.

It’s missing some important features that would make it a 5-star app. First of all, there is no search capability. If you’ve added a lot of files to the app, you’d best remember what they’re called and when you added them. With search missing, sorting would be the best way to find your sounds. Unfortunately, there’s no way to sort either. Making things worse is that the pre-loaded sounds don’t seem to be in any logical order at all. They’re not alphabetical and don’t seem grouped by type. They’re just there.

Switching to another tab stops the sound that’s playing. I think that must be a bug and not intentional. Missing search and sort holds back an otherwise nice system. One star off (I start at 4).

With search and sort, it’d be a solid 4-star app. A 5-star would share data with the iOS apps (via iCloud ideally) and have the ability to play via AirPlay. I’d consider that above and beyond the proverbial call. Right now, those annoying interface oversights need to be remedied.

Helps my focus while working

As a freelance writer I work at home, but often have my concentration interrupted by traffic noise, lawnmowers, leafblowers, kids playing, delivery trucks, and other distracting noises.

I saw the reviews here and thought I'd give it a try. What a great program - not only is the selection of sounds excellent, but the sound quality is great, and the ability to mix them to customize something that soothes and focuses you is excellent. You can change the pitch of a sound so it is right in a range that works best for you. The nicest thing is that somehow the sounds make you less stressed out.

Nice interface, too, easy to use and beautifully designed. Kudos!

Update: 2015

This remains one of my favorite apps -- I just can’t tell you how much having a white noise playing helps my productivity. I love that users can add new sounds, so if you get ear fatigue you can download some new recordings and create some new white noise to help you concentrate or sleep.

Very nice to have a nap listening to the sounds of this app

I enjoy listening to the sounds of this app. But starting from the sound “Air Conditioner” and to the very bottom I find them useless (as for me). I would rather prefer having more relaxing sounds.
