Pair this with a decent little speaker besides a cell phone's and you've got yourself a beautiful, customizable, soothing app. I can't stress how much this helps me sleep. You can add individual sounds to your current "mix" and change their volume levels individually, tempo, pace, etc. You can also record something in real life and use it as one of your sounds. This app is the #1 Sleep app, if you ask me. And you must be, because you just read this whole thing. ; ]
I've been using this app for years, both at home and away, and now I need it to sleep. The sound quality is amazing and while some of the functions have a learning curve, it's because of how well you can dial in the combinations. Even the "store" is great, with nearly unlimited sounds to choose from. The one problem is that there is no Chromecast audio support. I can cast to my regular video Chromecasts, but none of my speakers. Please add this feature to make this already great app even better!
Great app. Helps me sleep when I am away from all things usual. Was somewhat difficult to figure out how to customize the sound combo since it's not labeled. All in all a great app I would pay for again. *Edit* With all the updates recently this app is even easier to use and customize. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I use it every night and it is even my alarm clock in the morning. Interested in white noise apps? Download this one!
I've used this app for years on both iOS and Android—I have trouble waking up on time without it! White Noise has a great array of sounds, especially when paired with the White Noise Market app that lets you record and upload sounds, as well as to and download thousands more sounds recorded and uploaded by other users—urban soundscapes, musical lullabies, fictional sound effects (I currently have one that mimics sleeping on the ISS), animal calls, food cooking, and so forth. (I'm interested in trying out those brainwave sounds.) I also enjoy the ability to create mixes and adjust how close or far each sound is in the soundscape in those mixes. My only feature recommendation would be the ability to delete the stock sounds that come in the app binary.
The app is robust and great at what it does. The design could use a "Material" design overhaul. It would also be great if it had Google Home & Chromecast Audio support. It has regular Chromecast support, but the inability to cast to a speaker would be a killer feature. It would also be good if this app's alarm clock feature could sync with the phone's default alarm clock.
Great product, super helpful for sleeping. My only disappointment is that it recently lost some sounds I had recorded (and that will be difficult to record again). But it is a huge help, and definitely my favorite white noise app.
