Interesting idea, obviously in beta Clever idea, I do find I work better in coffee shops but I feel it's because I'm around other people rather than the noise level. This app has three different sounds and works exactly as it should in terms of playing the audio. The app clearly isn't finished yet but it's in beta. There's only one option in the menu (Settings) and it doesn't even do anything. No customisation or options at all. I'll update this review when the app is complete to see how far it's come.
Not properly written to run in the background This app does not register a persistent notification in the tray, so if you switch to a different app it will eventually get killed by Android to recover memory. This might happen immediately or after several minutes, but the clock is running as soon as you switch away from the app. Great app idea - please get it to run properly in the background so I can enjoy it without constantly restarting it!
A few suggestions The loops are too short. Record longer loops. Also, splice the loops seamlessly. There shouldn't be a distinct noticeable splice and absolutely no silence when the loop repeats. Lastly, the loop shouldn't start from the beginning everytime. Randomize the start point so the brain doesn't get too accustomed. Otherwise, once the loop become stale, it's no longer effective. This app is a nice start though. It just needs some work before it gets a perfect rating.
A strong concept I am a huge fan of you desktop program, so having a mobile version should be wonderful. Unfortunately I can't run anything other than this app while it's playing. That makes multitasking nearly impossible. If I don't need to use my phone everything works really well. Thanks for the start.
Nice! I loved how it didnt require any special permissions! Does the sound have to strictly be a coffee-shop setting, or can we include other sounds playing over the coffee shop? I wouldnt mind hearing the odd car go by, or birds tweeting! EDIT: I forgot to mention, can we have a seperate volume slider for Coffeetivity sounds? Also, settings does not appear to work.
Such a simple idea! You guys have hit it right on the head. I downloaded this app on my Macbook because I was curious, and it has become indispensable to me while I'm studying. The only thing I would like is the ability to control the volume of coffitivity exclusively, because I too use it in conjunction with Spotify focus playlists, and find that the music is much louder than coffitivity. Maybe have the option to put coffitivity on a different media stream, like android's "Notification s" stream or something like that.
We launched! Still in Beta - please send us feedback when ever possible.
