Needs more features I like the simplicity and elegance of the design but it suffers from a few drawbacks that are hard to overlook. 1. Can't be played in the background, can't do anything else with the phone while the app is playing, can't even turn off the screen. 2. No timer, the prominent apps in this genre all have sleep timers. 3. No volume control, not even with the phone's volume buttons. If these features were added this app could easily be a 5.
It's a great app that needs some polishing. One thing I noticed right away is that you can't change the volume without closing the app, which is an immersion breaker. Being able to use this while I sleep would also be helpful. However, the art/animation, rain tracks, and the design are absolutely wonderful. I love that you can change how heavy the rain is, well done!
Great concept This idea is really polished, and I respect the elegant minimalism, but man it just needs a little bit more to it. This could be such a useful tool for people to meditate with, or people with anxiety like myself, but sadly you can't even keep the rain sounds running when you lock your phone :(
Very nice rain storm app! Like many of the reviews below, this app really needs to run in sleep mode. Also you cannot change the volume via the external volume buttons unless you use the pull down settings menu. Some of the thunder rumbles sound a bit more like fireworks, but all in all this is a good app. It could become great with just a few features added.
I am thoroughly convinced that using this app lets me controll the weather. I habe had this app for about 2 weeks now and on the days where I use it, no rain pours. And on the days that I don't rain just so happens to ruin my day. This has been a great app and an even better substitute for a weather app.
Got thus app to help with my anxiety. Nice backgrounds and rain effects but could use some improvements. Firstly, it needs instructions. I would have never have known you could change the rain direction and intesnsity by tapping certain areas. Secondly you hear the sound effect when it loops. There is a brief break as the loop plays over. Lastly you cannot minimise the app or the effect will stop. Not useful for wanting the rain on in the background.
