About this app

For a lot of people, a little uniform background noise is helpful to remain calm and focused. In some cases, it also boosts productivity and lowers the effects of stress and anxiety. Background noise also masks tinnitus, calms agitated infants and improves reading and meditation experiences.

Noice is an app that allows you to create personalised sound environments. It enables you to combine different sounds at different volume levels to create perfect ambient atmospheres. These custom sound surroundings let you drown out distractions and allow you to concentrate. You can also use it to generate a serene, peaceful aura that encourages you to relax and fall asleep.

Edited from 5 to 1 new update is horrible. Now you have to be online to access the sounds and they don't play constantly. Random sounds shutting off while playing, presets not working. I liked that this was a simple open source app you're trying to turn it into a big creepy app that needs constant internet connectivity just like everything else these days.

Used to be amazing. Absolutely ruined after update. Literally unusable. Thanks alot now I can't sleep until I find a new app THE NIGHT BEFORE A HUGE EVENT I MUST GET UP EXTRA EARLY FOR!!! Been using this app for years. All my presets are ruined. All my work gone. Most of the sounds are suddenly removed. Went from 3 types of rain to 1. Went from 3 types of thunder with adjustable timing to 1 with no timing adjustment. Good work you fools now your app is terrible and uninstalled

After I first installed it a few months ago, I found many of the noises lifelike, charming, and relaxing. I especially loved the "Purring Cat" which I found the most calming. As of August 18/22 I noticed the sound quality of ALL the sounds are discordant which is disappointing and no longer nice to listen to (BTW it is NOT my speakers!). The developer responded that it was being worked on, but after more updates, as of September 15/22 no changes have been made. Sad. Will uninstall.

Already on it! Please give it a couple of days and it should be resolved. Edit 16/10/22: I have made the changes. I apologise that it took unexpectedly long to resolve this issue.
