I had Lightning Bug, a plug in, & downloaded both so I have sounds in Ambio. When Android updated to 9 or 10, the snooze/dismiss button was no show after the screen timed out. Draw over other apps isn't in the app settings. To turn off/snooze alarm- Bio login, screen pull down, select alarm. I use S10 & ❤ ambio. Sleep timer works great. I just want to use the alarms again, but they won't draw over the lock screen. Can y'all make that happen? I emailed but it is getting bounced back to me.

I have had this app for....the better part of ten years? Wow, I first installed it not long after it was released. I'd been getting very frustrated with finding apps for background noise, because I could *ALWAYS* discern the loops, and the repetitiveness would actually make it HARDER to sleep. Then I found Ambio. It's been an absolute godsend, and in all these years of using it, I haven't been able to detect a single loop. The versatility that this program gives you for building your optimal sleep noise environment is unparalleled. The amount of sounds available is bafflingly huge and varied (and in some cases, oddly specific). I have seen nothing like it since. My sincerest praise to the developers of this app. That said, in recent android updates, it seems to be having trouble playing nice with bluetooth (especially my brand new Kove Commuter). Would be nice to see an update.

I used this app when it was lightningbug. I purchased meditationpack, junglepack, and countrypack. Not sure if the owner/operator sold the app to another person, but since Lightningbug changed to Ambio - it appears my sound packs and the quality updates stopped being made. Now, seeing this abandonment, I am forced to uninstall and move on to another. Goes to show ya, digital apps, you never REALLY own them - and they are practically worthless if you try relying to improve your quality of life.
