About this app

For any problems or support, please email gabriel@asoftmurmur.com


Upgrade to Marshmallow 6.0.1


Android Marshmallow 6.0.0 has problems when all sounds are unlocked. This is fixed in Marshmallow 6.0.1. If your device is on 6.0.0 and cannot upgrade to 6.0.1 it might be a good idea not to unlock all the sounds.


If you need help with any problems, please contact me at gabriel@asoftmurmur.com


Fully Offline


Download once, listen whenever and where you like. All sounds are stored locally and there are no ads or other network requests.


Smooth Gapless Playback


Other ambient sound apps have annoying gaps or clicks when the player reaches the end of a track and loops back to the beginning. A Soft Murmur plays totally seamless and uninterrupted audio so it never interrupts your focus.


Background audio


A Soft Murmur will play sounds until you tell it to stop - listen while you browse the internet or listen to music.


Sounds


Mix together 10 ambient sounds:


• Rainfall
• Thunder
• Waves
• Gusting wind
• Crackling fireplace*
• Birdsong*
• Crickets*
• Coffee shop*
• Singing bowl*
• White noise*


* These six sounds are unlocked with a single in-app purchase


Meander


When you activate the Meander function, the app gently increases or decreases the volume of each active sound, creating gentle rolling waves of sound that are never the same twice.


Timers


Set A Soft Murmur to fade gently to silence to help you drift into sleep, or set a timer to start or stop playing after a custom length of time. Timers run in the background, even if you user other apps, and show the time left in the notification area. Use timers to transform A Soft Murmur into a versatile productivity app.


Mixes


Save your favorite mixes and give them names. Switch easily between them whenever you like.


Share


A Soft Murmur lets you share your mixes with friends using Facebook Messenger, Twitter, SMS and hundreds of other apps. If your friend has A Soft Murmur installed they can open your mix in the app. If they don't, they can listen to your mix online.

AMAZING app and sounds. I've used it for about 8 years straight now. Unfortunately it was updated to use a subscription model, and since then the quality of the experience has massively dropped. Writing this review because for the umpteenth time the app has crashed and woke me up. Refuses to boot back up, keeps resetting the audio repeatedly in the middle of the night and turning off, and you can no longer turn the sounds off from the notification bar. The app DESPERATELY needs serious bug fixes

Insanely buggy but a good product to start. The main issue is going to bed, it'll stop playing randomly but the notification is still there so I have to kill the app and reopen it. And very often the app will crash when I open it multiple times until my phone (S24u) decides to wipe the cache for me, and sometimes it sends me back to the default mix and I gotta go back to mine. The sounds are great but the app is mad buggy.

Used to be a really strong app. No sign in required, and it still gave like 8 sounds that were good (like rain, thunder, fire, coffee ship). I love the ability to set a timer for it to start or stop playing. But something changed recently, I guess, because the play/stop button is buggy now. I've had to uninstall and reinstall twice now because it wouldn't stop playing when I wanted it to stop.
