The sounds make for the perfect distraction to aid in one's falling and staying asleep at night. Most of the sounds are interesting, familiar, and commonly associated with relaxation and tranquility. One nice feature is that the user can take his/her favorite sounds and fuse them into a unique original. I would recommend this app to anyone who is having difficulty getting a quality ray at night.
I've been using the white noise app for 4 or 5 years now. It has been a lifesaver. I get distracted pretty easily sometimes, especially when reading or writing, and this app has been a huge help. Even music sometimes makes it hard to concentrate. When I need to focus, I just pump up the air conditioner track and get to my business. I don't sleep with it at night, but it's great for naps in places like airplanes or trains. On a long flight I used this app nearly constantly. The $.99 is well worth it. Best dollar I ever spent. What makes this 5 stars for me is the market where you can download new sounds, and the recently added widget. Now that there's a widget, this is a perfect app.
!!!!! THE APP NEEDS A DELETE FUNCTION !!!!! I use the app because I am a 'lite' sleeper, and it doesn't take much to wake me. I use the app to generate background noise that helps 'mask' sounds that might wake me. BUT...I am revising my rating and dropping from 5 to 3 stars because there is no way to delete sounds I don't use. I have added several sounds to my library, but I am wasting storage on sounds I will never use for the purpose of covering up background noise while I sleep. Add a method to delete sounds, and earn back the 5-Star rating.
I love this app. I use it to help me sleep or just as background noise or to relieve stress/anxiety. It's been fabulous. I like the variety of sounds and mixes, as well as the ability to download and create other sounds. I also love the features that allow you to "sleep time" your sound or set an alarm. I highly recommend. I didn't think I'd use it this much, but I use it all the time!
The San Francisco waves is my new favorite and my wife loves the thunder storm. It sounds very realistic. I have found that if I am having trouble sleeping, I start this app and within 15 minutes, I'm out like a light!
Loops for a lot of sounds are obvious. However long they may be, they're still predictable to my ear when I'm trying to fall asleep. The fire, ship, jungle, just to name a few. Color noise is okay. Wish there was a way to configure the frequency at which certain sounds occur.
