About this app

Recommended as a miracle for better sleep! Find out why the world is sleeping better with White Noise. Features ambient sounds of the environment to help you relax during the day and sleep great at night.

Do you have trouble going to sleep? Are you traveling on a plane and need a quick power nap? Does your newborn baby wake up in the middle of the night? There are numerous benefits to using White Noise:

• Helps you sleep by blocking distractions
• Relaxes and reduces stress
• Pacifies fussy and crying babies
• Increases focus while enhancing privacy
• Soothes headaches and migraines
• Masks tinnitus (ringing of the ears)

Even when you’re asleep, your brain is constantly scanning and listening for sounds. If it’s too quiet, unwanted noises such as faucet drips or police sirens can interrupt your sleep. White Noise generates sounds over a wide range of frequencies, masking those noise interruptions, so you can not only fall asleep, but stay asleep.

SOUND CATALOG

40 sounds are included as part of the application (no downloading required unless you want more) including all the color noises (brown, white, pink, etc), mechanical sounds like a bedroom fan or air conditioner, light to heavy rains, rushing water sounds, beach and ocean waves, and so much more. For the entire list of sounds please visit our website. No streaming is required for playback.

I love this app and we use it every night when we sleep... but it crashes a LOT lately. Almost every night, I wake up at some point and the app has completely shut itself down no matter which device we use. It's still nice to have, but annoying to be woken in the night by abrupt silence and have to fumble with a phone when you're half asleep.

Find a better app - this one's out of its lifespan. I've had this app for years, but I think they stopped putting effort into improving it. Audio levels shift while playing and it frequently crashes. I've had this app on Apple and Android both and it had worsening problems on both devices. Also the audio has stayed the exact same for the better part of a decade now. Maybe find some higher quality audio to go with improved devices? Idk man, fix your stuff. People pay for this.

I've been using this for several years but now facing issues with crackly sound. Whenever I use with Bluetooth headphones with aptX profile, the sound quality is fully of gaps and static (across multiple phones and headsets). LDAC or changing the pairing to use SBC resolves this. Not all headsets support LDAC and SBC is lower quality. Please fix! Other than that. This is my favorite app with the flexibility of downloading new sounds from the market. The interface, while usable, needs modernized.
