Worth the price!
Started with white noise lite, loved it, but felt restricted (it stops the noise if you leave the app). Upgraded, and it was a game changer. I use it for everything now - going to sleep, trying to focus while in the office, meditating, shoving off anxiety - you know, basics. At first I would just play the sounds available as is, and THEN I started playing around with the app features. You can try making your own mixes to get some variety, and if you download white noise market for free, you can to add to the sounds you already have in your library. You can also record sounds (you can do it right in the app), and if you want, you can upload it into the white noise market and other people can download and enjoy the things you record too. I live near a river and when it rains, that sound is one of my favorite things in the world.. now I carry it around with me so I have it when I need a calm moment. I love it so much, can’t recommend it enough!

Great variety of sounds, great sleep aid
I love the variety of sounds that are available, and, coupled with the White Noise Store, you can keep as many sounds as you’d like. I use the app on lunch breaks, as I sleep in my car, and, oftentimes, at there’s at least one person who blares out loud, obnoxious music, or talks on their phone while I’m trying to recharge my batteries with a short power nap. The app has higher-pitched sounds(Pink Noise) for the booming bass-based obnoxious music that someone will blare out from their car stereo, and, lower-pitched sounds(Room Noise, Brown Noise, Gray Noise, and Space Station Sleep Room, just to name a few) to drown out the higher-pitched music, or conversation. The timer function is great, and there’s even a Fade-In option that let’s you have your selected wake noise fade in slowly. And, here is what cost this App a 5th Star: When the Fade-In option is activated, your selected Wake Noise fades in gradually, but, your sleep noise stops. Suddenly. And, THAT wakes me up BEFORE the Wake Noise starts. If the Sleep Noise were to slowly start to fade, I’d say, 30 seconds before the Wake Noise were to kick in, AND THEN, the Wake Noise were to slowly fade in at, say, 15-20 seconds before the scheduled wake-up time, that would make this App an even better investment!

I LOVE this sketchy app
I have been using this app since at least 2013 and I’ve loved it. Sometime last in the last year or two the free app I had been using all the time would quit if I went out of the app. I hated that! So I paid the upgraded subscription - it felt totally justified after my very happy 7 years using it for free! - price just to avoid the app quitting when I went in and out of it. But it’s a freak’n hit or miss situation - totally frustrating! - that most of the time the app will continue it’s sound even if I’m not “in the app” but way too often it will turn off if I go out of the app. I’m giving an app I LOVE 2 stars because it’s ridiculous that there’s no consistency that can be counted on in regards to how I want this app to perform. If I want the white noise airplane sound on to drown out my loud sister so I can scroll Twitter *peacefully* lol, then I want it on. I don’t want it to go off just because I’m using a different app - ESPECIALLY since 90% of the time the app acts “normally! - I want to be able to drown out my sister regardless of going from the White Noise app to another! Membership ($’s) should have at least that privilege! UPDATE: I updated the app and now it seems to be working like I above complained it didn’t! If it remains true to its old form, I give the app 5 stars!

5 ⭐️ solid
I bought this app in 2010 with the birth of my first child. Out of hundreds apps I owned in the last 14 years, this is the one I kept using it for different reasons, including my other three children. Over a decade ago, even the New York Times paper published the innovation behind this app. If you are looking nothing more than white noise, this is the 5 star app. There might be others but this app has been getting the job done for me since 2010. So good that even got me to sweet dreams while holding my kids when they were babies. The list of white noises were perfectly chosen, as well as the ability to mix them like a typical campfire by the sea, or storm in a forest. Since 2010, my essentials in a diaper’s bag are: diapers, formula, wipes, water, and my phone with the app in it. The rest is accessory. This is not like many other app to please your personal test; it’s actually a problem solver.

I love this app — I have one tweak request, though ...
I work from home, as does my wife. Ever since we moved my office to the room with the back door and my dad moved in with us, there’s been a lot of foot traffic and ambient noise near my desk. White Noise is invaluable — I’ve had a thunderstorm in my head for days now, blocking out all the footsteps, dog barking, and general hubbub that happens while I’m trying to concentrate. One feature request, though (and I’m guessing the developers have heard this before): I would love it if the sounds faded in or out on start and stop rather than being so abrupt. I can see how that might be a complicated addition since the noise is generated rather than strictly a recording, but it’s very jarring to turn it off and on. Other than that, I use white noise more than any other app these days, except perhaps mail and messages. Thanks for a great app!

Great for sleeping
Love this app for sleeping. Can't sleep without it. Cuts out the different noises that may wake u through the night. Use to have a fan running at night while I slept. 365 days but in the winter it makes it too cold but still had to use the fan. I've been using this app for 5 years. The clock has different colors so if u want it to light the room or keep it dark u can & still use the clock. You can put 2 together or just pick anyone that would work for u. I do recommend it!! Update: I have used this app probably 10 years now but on the last few updates to the app I’ve not been happy with it. If you don’t put it in clock mode the phone sleep mode kicks in. So when my cats wake it up in the middle of the night & I want to see what time it is the phone is asleep but the sound is still playing. It defeats the whole purpose of having it for a clock. Try & fix it on your next update it’s very annoying.

Good mix of sounds
I've used a white noise machine for 20 years or more to block out background sound so that I can sleep. I had tried apps before on my phone, but they didn't come close to the same range of sounds that my white noise machine could block. However, recently, the batteries corroded my white noise machine and so I had to look for an option. This time I tried a few White Noise apps, and this one came the closest to re-creating the full spectrum of white noise that blocks everything I need it to block. I love that you can combine several sounds, and they are all quality. I play the white noise through a blue tooth speaker to really get a full rich blocking sound effect. It is the very best out there, I can’t sleep without it.

Worth a try, but needs a tweak or two
My doctor has prescribed a med with interrupted sleep as a side effect. I downloaded White Noise to help “lullaby” me back to sleep in the middle of the night. It plays through my Bluetooth enabled hearing aids. It helps some, certainly better than silence. White noise offers a considerable selection of satisfactory sounds and the option of creating a playlist to vary them. I found it worth encouraging the developer with a paid upgrade of less than a dollar. It’s worth that. The app does have it’s issues: The option menus are not very intuitive, and they are confusing There are a few “tips” but no manual or help function The upgrade wipes all the playlist, mix creations, and manually recorded sounds. It leaves the old Lite app in place with a different colored icon. It’s just odd and awkward. I don’t resent spending the dollar, but I can’t see that it buys anything really The volume of the sounds vary a lot perceptually from one another. It’s just about impossible to create a playlist that does not have jarring volume changes. The app really needs the ability to adjust the volume of playlist entries individually. There is a shuffle function that reorders the playlist but no capacity for creating a specific desired order by moving items up or down manually

Best app I have spent money on
I work in a noisy office that I’ve not been able to block out and this app has saved my sanity. I’d give it 5 stars except for 2 small things. One of which is you have download a separate app to download additional sounds. If this is a feature of your app, I shouldn’t have to use another tool. Second thing is when you create a playlist, the default time for each item is 10 minutes. I wish there were a setting to reduce that so I wouldn’t have to adjust each item in the playlist. Other than these two annoyances, this app offers a great variety of sounds thanks to the community uploading. I used the free app version for a long time before paying and I wish I hadn’t waited. The stock sounds are decent, but the additional ones you can download are great.

Great except for one flaw
Updating my review to five stars because I found out you can disable those annoying new sound postcards! Thank goodness! The paid version of this app is worth every penny! I am a horrible sleeper who wakes at even the slightest noise, and am able to detect the repeat in most sound tracks, and that will keep me awake. However, many of the sounds on this app have perfect loops and no distinguishing pattern, so I sleep great! What cost it a star: that stupid splash noise when there is a pop up about new sounds or some such nonsense. I never read it. All I know is it’s very annoying, and very jarring, to set a sound to sleep, put the phone down, only to be jolted by the sudden, loud splash! Get rid of that and you’ll have a perfect app.

Must have travel app!
This app is a must have/go to for the traveler! It saves you on an airplane by drowning out the chatter around you so you can sleep. It eliminates weird hotel noises and the too loud tv next door problem. The clock feature means you can unplug the alarm clock and use the bedside outlet to charge your device and still know what time it is in the middle of the night. The sounds and mixes are so incredibly customizable. Love that I can make a sound that is just right so that I don’t even hear it, but I don’t hear anything else either. Definitely among my most used apps when I travel. I’ve used and loved and recommended it for years now. Thank you for making such a great, useful, intuitive app.

Used for longer than I can remember
Great app and it’s free! Sound choices are many. I stick with a mix of rain sounds myself. I was able to give up my year round fan use, which was too drying for my sinuses and took up too much room and needed an extension cord. My husband is a music producer and doesn’t care for a white noise background when sleeping, so I use the app with one earbud. The sounds help drown out thevhusban’d snoring, while still allowing me to hear my kids if they call out during the night. I am an insomniac and take naps during the day. I don’t use the earbud then, and again the sound is perfect for drowning out my boisterous teens while I sleep. My only complaint is that I use it on my iPhone and alarms will still go off, but not in my Bluetooth earbud. Otherwise this app has so many sounded choices, can custom blend your mix and save it, and has great setting choices. Its the perfect app. My two daughters use it too m, but their mix is different than mine and that’s part time f the perks. I cannot recommend this app enough!

Keeps Me Out Of Trouble
White Noise is my savior from all things irritating and outrageous and drowns out much of the insanity we are subjected to as commuters and travelers: having to listen to ear buds and head phones that are not remotely restricted to the person wearing them, rude, self-involved hair balls who don't even bother to use headphones on their devices, people who speak loudly on cell phones because they think they will hear better if they talk louder, and the appalling and truly disgusting epidemic of men who no longer carry handkerchiefs and cluelessly subject everyone around them to the vile sounds of them relentlessly sucking the snot back into their heads ad nauseum. For these reasons and many more, I am grateful for White Noise.

Needs a button to dismiss “clock mode”
I’ve tried a lot of different clock/alarm clock apps. This is my favorite so far. Two things would make it perfect. Firstly, it’s too easy to dismiss the clock when you’re in clock mode. Any place you touch on the display dismisses the clock. This is not ideal when you’re trying to use the app for an alarm clock as it’s too easy to unintentionally dismiss the clock. This could be easily remedied by putting a button someplace on the face of the clock that you had to press to dismiss the clock. The other feature I would like is to be able to use any sound for an alarm sound not just the ones packaged with the app. If it had those two features they would get five stars from me.

Love it
I use this app every time I travel. I appreciate the selection of sounds to mask out disturbing noises when I sleep, and I appreciate the clock display which I can check usually at night without my glasses. All in all, it does more than I had expected when I got it, and I am completely satisfied. New thoughts in September 2018– I found that by making a downward stroke on the digital clock face I can decrease the illumination of the clock to the point where it is just a visible, but not distracting as it sits on a small portable table-top easel or phone holder(I suppose you’d say)facing The head of my bed, wherever that may be in the world in travel. 2021 New thought? Nope. Still love it.

DONE. UNRELIABLE. MUSIC “PLAYS” BUT WITH NO VOLUME SO FORGET ABOUT WAKING UP TO IT! TIRED OF WAKING UP LATE BECAUSE THE MUSIC IS AT VOLUME LEVEL 0. UPDATE: I don’t know what they did on the most recent update, but since then my music alarms do not go past half volume! I do not have fade set, and I learned a LONG time ago to check my music volume (since it is separate from the sounds volume) before setting the alarm. I play a little random music, make sure the volume is all of the way up, and then set the alarm. While a PITA, at least that fixed the issue of the alarm going off with no volume but now it just sits at half volume! NOT GOOD! For now I’ll keep with it and trying but after years of using the app and lots of downloaded sounds, I may end up changing after all to something that wakes me up instead of me waking up before it. PREVIOUS: Let me delete stock sounds! That is probably my only complaint. I’m good as long as I remember to check the volume of my music before going to bed. Quite a few times the sound was all of the way down so no alarm. But it is really annoying to have to keep sounds I will never use like the drier, fan, clock, etc. they are just annoying to me- please pick one sample like waves to have to keep and let us delete the others!

Best way to drown out house noises
If you’re someone who lays there and hears your older house “settling” and maybe it freaks you out a bit, this is a great app. When you know your house is secure and safe, turn it on so you can’t hear the tiny little things that might wake you up. Pets roaming around, distant thunder, an old two-story house that freaks and sways with the wind and just settles and adjusts constantly are all things that keep people waking up and not getting a good night’s sleep. This will help drown out those noises. If you still want to be able to hear, just don’t turn it up so loud but let it cover the softer noises good stuff! Love making my own mixes!

Beware: Battery Killer
I’ve been using this app for over 10 years. Love it. Or at least, I used to. In the past, I would leave it on all night and it would drain about 20-30% of the battery. That includes about 7 different iPhone and 5 different iPads over a decade. Now, with the new iPad Pro (11 inch), running the latest iOS, the battery drains 100% in about 6 hours. (WiFi and Bluetooth off, all other apps closed, screen off) Then I wake up, bc the sound stops. I battled Apple for a while about this, they finally replaced my iPad, and the same thing happens on the new iPad. For some reason, an iPad Pro (12.9 inch) does not have this problem. Battery drains about 20% in 12 hours, with all the background apps on, WiFi and Bluetooth on. I’ve read online about other people having this exact same issue, so it must be one of two things: Something inherently wrong with the new ipads (or certain models. Seems the Air has the same issue) Or, something inherently wrong with a recent update of the app. I tried to contact the developers about this, but got no reply. I simply cannot use this app (I refuse to plug in my iPad at night when it is at 98% battery simply to use a white noise app that can’t last 7 hours.)

Most Relaxing App Ever!
I don’t ever really think to write reviews but this is the best noise app! I have used a generic noise machine my whole life and I downloaded this app needing some noise as I was sleeping in the living room that night and my AC won’t turn on so it was silent in the room and I couldn’t fall asleep. I CANNOT believe how AMAZING this is and how I didn’t have it sooner. The fact that you can mix your own sounds together is makes this worth every penny. And when I’m just chilling around the house I’ll use it to just keep me calm and it really works! I am in love with this app and I recommend it to everyone! Money well spent! Thank you so much to the developers!!!

Drains battery
I’ve used this app happily for years when I sleep at night with my phone plugged in and charging always to 100% overnight. But in the last 4 months I noticed my phone wouldn’t charge past 60% overnight. I thought it was my phone that was the issue and went through weeks of troubleshooting with no fix - only to find out it was the white noise app that was doing it. Switched to another sleep app and my phone went back to charging to 100% and working perfectly. Very disappointed in whatever they decided to change in the app recently and can no longer recommend it. Also should mention it can sometimes crash and will wake me up in the middle of the night - another recent development that never used to happen.

My most rewarding app purchase
Five stars. What a great app! Simply create and combine audio loops for whatever background noise you need to help you sleep or focus, whether it’s needed to drown out real sounds around you or fill a too-quiet space with something your brain needs. That functionality combined with the user-sources Market Place for a massive selection of loops is *kissy hand gesture*. Been a user for years and was just recommending it for the umpteenth time to a friend when I realized I’d never come here to review it. To the dev/product team for this app, really, well done and MUCH appreciated.

Could improve sound library somewhat
I like the app, and I use it sometimes for sleeping (played over small Bluetooth speakers). However, only a couple of the sound selections seem a good fit for me - in particular the rain forest and the running river. Many of the rest seem somewhat harsh and/or intrusive rather than soothing. Taking some of the treble off the rain selections might help a bit. The rain forest selection, which I otherwise like, could use a longer clip — right now, the loop is short enough that one quickly begins to anticipate when each bird call is coming, which ends up being a distraction. Maybe twice or three times as long would be better.

Please fix recent bug
I’ve used and enjoyed this every fall/winter for years. (I don’t need it in warmer mints when we’re running the our loud A/Cs at night). I have the paid version. This year when I returned to the app I noticed a bug. After about 6 hours of playing the volume will suddenly increase drastically (waking me up). Once this happens, despite my adjusting the volume back down or pausing/restarting the sound, the problem will repeat every 15 min or so. By bedtime it seems to have reset itself so I can get another 6 hours in without trouble. Unfortunately, I’m usually trying to sleep for 7 hours. So, this has become a big problem. I’m going to have to find something else to use until I see an update. Disappointing!!

Love this app but one huge pet peeve
This app is so wonderful and I love using it to help me fall asleep. My only complaint is that there is a pop up (that looks like a postcard) on the screen that makes a super loud sound. Sometimes in the middle of the night while using the app, I open my phone and the postcard pop up sound startles me. I was using the free version and bought it hoping the pop up would be gone. It is still there which bums me out. I really love this app but would really appreciate it if the pop up did not have any sound with it. Would be so grateful if you would consider removing the sound for an update. Thank you!!

Great app, good variety
Having been using this app for years and love it. Use it on trips for the kids and for me too. We seem to have defaulted to the brown noise, but I like to listen to the rain from time time, even though I live in Seattle now 😜 I still use the app regularly even though I have had recent issues with the app on my iPhone 7+. The volume controls sometimes is laggy in response, and a few times now I’ve had the volume turn off in the middle of the night 😳. It seams related to the app and iOS12. Hope it’s a bug that can be squashed.

Marriage Saver
When my wife started her cancer treatments she became accustomed to sleeping with the TV running while in the hotel where she and my daughter stayed. While at home one of us had to sleep on the couch so she could have the TV SOUND. Since th light kept me awake, the lack of restful sleep kept us on each others nerves and arguing became the norm. Then I found White Noise. It has made it so we can both rest and sleep in the same bed with our choice of sounds. Because we both enjoy camping, we have created our own mix that puts us to sleep and let’s us rest through the night.

Doesn’t always work
I’ve had this app for a while and always use it as my alarm. Lately it’s not working on my ipad the same as on my iPhone. Several times throughout the night the sound feature would just stop and it would shut off and I would have to open the app and start it all over again. It’s updated so I don’t what’s wrong. It worked one night then went right back to not working. Same exact app on iPhone and works there, except when I snooze it, the white noise sound doesn’t continue. Several times on my phone the music alarm would start but there was no way to turn it off. I would have to go into the music app just to stop it. Very frustrating.

The perfect white noise app!
This is literally the perfect white noise app. It has all of the options that I was looking for. I am using this on an old iPhone in my child’s room after multiple cheaper sound machine have broken. It has option for everything you would ever want - including one that made me come here and write a review (the one where you can disable prompt for writing reviews - I figured if the app maker is nice enough to give that option then I’ll take advantage of it AND go ahead and leave my honest review.) Seriously this app is the best. I love it. Thank you!

Less snoring with the WhiteNoise app
I use it to keep me from falling into my deepest sleep where I snore for 30-45 minutes straight until I tire myself out. By keeping "the cocktail party" just loud enough so I don't wake up but still remain in a restful sleep, I can keep myself from slipping into my deepest sleep where I snore. I use a quieter version mixed with a TV show I recorded to fall asleep. 30 minutes later, I stop the TV version and slowly ramp up the loud version. I record myself every night to verify if it is working. I'm finally starting to sleep a little better now.

Hard to sleep wo it
Thanks, who knew that white noise would become difficult to sleep wo this app. I too have been using this app for approximately 10 years plus. Because of my homes proximity to a highway it has become my gateway to getting a decent nights slumber…lulling me into REM with my favorite, the Ocean Waves! I could keep giving this app five stars however, I want to point out a couple of bugs that have been annoying me for the last year or so. Numero Uno: the snooze function used to allow you to select your snooze interval. Now it is default and locked into 10 minutes. I would love the option to choose my interval in minutes again! Two: I have observed recently that if I have a incoming call before my scheduled alarm…the app stops playing my selected noise. Not acceptable. Please address these issues that I have reported to your review. Signed, Awaiting an update.

The best white noise app
I held off on trying this app because it just didn’t look pretty. Heck, the user interface is plain ugly. BUT, after trying nearly a dozen other white noise apps, I can conclude that this is absolutely the best app available. Pick from dozens of sounds, record your own, adjust pitch and volume, mix with other sounds... the options are endless. And the app accomplishes all of it without a single hitch. To top it all off, this app charges a one-time price of $0.99, whereas other comparable apps charge subscriptions up to $100 per year!

If you want to sleep more soundly he, get this app
We live in a busy metropolitan area with traffic and street noises and once in a while, a drunk who walks around screaming his head off or garbage trucks backing up a half a block with hazards warning chimes at 4 o'clock in the morning... you get the picture. Four months ago our neighbors had a baby and this was a lifesaver. Your turn on the White Noise before falling asleep and it covers any noise around you, creating a nice buffer. While there are many sounds, the best are the white type noises, we prefer the brown one.

Mind blowing!!!!
After using this app well over a year. I have learned that if you are trying to relax, sleep or be creative to mix sounds for anything. I worked on tugboats and fishing boats years ago but, I can close my eyes and recreate everything even several different nature, mechanical or a special sound just for new thoughts or an old memory. There is nothing to compare this to! Try it you will be hooked on it. Pare it with a good Bluetooth speaker or earbuds and expect more than you could dream of!!!

It keeps getting better
I have had this app for a while now and love it. The more I use it, the more I like it! Great sounds, great features. My two favorite things are (1) that it switches to a clock that stays on as long as my phone is plugged in (fully customizable both in color and brightness) so I use it as my clock at night and (2) that you can program multiple repeating alarms... So I have it set to fade out every weekday morning a few minutes before my alarm goes off, and have a separate time to fade out on the weekends!

Thank you !!
Very fast response from developers to fix a crash on iOS 9. Thank you for the quick and professional response. I have enjoyed white noise greatly for many years and it was disheartening when a “simple” bug fix rendered the app inoperable for some. I realize that iOS 9 is long in the tooth and a lot of developers are not targeting this version now. apple does not help any by changing file and permission access methods with most iOS revisions which cause a lot of these bugs with older iOS versions.

I love this app
I used to use this app for my son who used to be such a light sleeper when he was a baby. I literally couldn’t flush the toilet without him waking up. I used the crowded room sound and he started getting used to it to where I didn’t have to be afraid of any noise. I use this app for my niece now whenever she goes to sleep. The white noise sound helps drown out any other noise that’s going on with my kids so she sleeps. Such a great app, it’s so helpful and I recommend it to anyone who needs help with sleeping kids or just for yourself.

Must have for travel
I'm a flight attendant, and this is a must have for all of my layovers. I used to carry a small white noise machine with me, but this app is much better, especially when paired with a small Bluetooth speaker so you aren't using your phone speaker to death. The white noise and pink noise I find are the best to block out those jerks who chat in the halls and slam doors, as well as the twelve dozen housekeepers who always seem to be outside my door. And yes, you will still hear your wake up call and or alarm. An absolute must have!

It's saved my sanity
I live in an older apartment building, and the walls are not sound proof. I have the serious misfortune of living under a loud snorer, after a couple nights of the annoying amours excruciating sound coming from above I downloaded the app. The Steam water Flowing effect has drowned out the snoring and aid in an overall comfortable night of sleep. Highly recommend for anyone who has to deal with any annoying sound that disturbs your sleep, especially if it's a sound that you have no control over.

Can't sleep without it
Love this app. I sleep to it every night and when I nap. I've loaded it on all my children's devices and now everyone uses it. I'm an RN, and I've used it for patients who have problems sleeping in a noisy hospital. I love all the options for noises to suit my sleeping mood. Lastly, when I really need to study up on something or concentrate, I'll pick a sound mix like gamma waves for concentration and tropical forest and pop in my ear buds. It drowns out all other noise and allows me to concentrate. Truly one of my favorite apps.

Amazing app!
I have a lot of trouble shutting my mind off when I try to sleep. I find I get the most peaceful rest turning on the thunderstorm effect for 36 min to fall asleep to: there are a bunch of different sounds for all types of people. I start to just focus on the sound of the storm and the next thing you know it's morning. It also has a feature of an alarm if you like to wake up to a soft sound of a monk bowl or a fan (among many more). I night suggest this app, it's helped me so much with my sleeping!

Use it daily
I seriously use this app everyday. i love making my own mixes with my own recordings, but there are a ton in the library that are great too. only problem is this app/apps took me a while to figure out on my own and could probably use a redesign. but! now that i have it figured out, i love it. i use it when i go to sleep, so the timer is nice. i use it when i'm working so the playlist is nice. this is one of the few apps i use every single day. i use it as much as iTunes!

I only bought it so I could concentrate while typing.
During the latest update, it seems as though they changed the White Noise Lite app to no longer allow you to listen to it while outside the app. Multitasking with that app, whether it’s typing, looking up something online, or whatever, is basically no longer possible. It’s only a dollar to purchase, but it still greatly irritates me that they decided to do this. I bought the full version because of this, and because I find it highly difficult to concentrate on reading or writing while other people are talking nearby, which happens quite a lot. So take my money, and my 1 star review.

New Parents
If you’re a new parent this app is an absolute 100% must have app. Our daughter is five months old and the vacuum cleaner noise still puts her to sleep. I even forgot how much better I sleep with white noise. And the marketplace is great too for new sounds to download. Best $0.99 I’ve ever spent that’s for sure. Update: Four months later and still using the app nightly. Only our little one has moved from the noises to music. Great selection of lullabies, meditation music and our favorite Christmas carols.

I love it for travel
Sleeping in hotels is hard because of the different noises . This app is great. Plug in phone, turn on noise (I like airplane or brown noise), turn on the red or blue digital clock - and voila --- you've got steady noise, a handy night light ( dimmable) and a clock to see if you wake up in the middle of the night. Love it, and so does the wife and daughter. Also - hint for hotel sleeping - use earplugs! Even with this, the occasional door slam or loud kids in the hall used to wake me. No more!!! Zzzzzzz

I downloaded this app in a pinch for my toddler and baby to be able to sleep at a relative’s house and it works great! So many different sounds to choose from as well as asleep mode were you can see a large clock on your phone as if you have your plugged in alarm clock at home with you! They really thought this one out! 5 stars for sure!! I’m 6 years into using it and still use the clock part every night! It’s a win win in my book!

Issue with IPhone
I really love this app, the sounds are amazing and you have a huge variety. The only reason I gave it 3 stars is because I’ve been experiencing an issue with the app. When I click on the app it comes up and acts like it’s trying to open, then poof the app kicks out and closes the app. I have to click on the app several times to get it to open. Once opened the app freezes and will not open . I’m not sure about what’s going on here, if it’s an iOS issue or a app issue but hopefully it’s fixed soon as I paid for this app.

You can turn off rating prompts!
I’m upgrading my original 2-star review (critical of the frequent prompts to rate/review the app) because the app developers saw my review and emailed me to say that you can turn these OFF in “Settings.” I’m delighted to have learned this and impressed that TMSOFT reached out to me. I do love this app—it has a grand selection of convincing, restful sounds to mask noise at pretty much any pitch. I use the app every night and it’s like having a husband who doesn’t snore. My world is perfect now :)

I used the lite version every night for several years, then eventually upgraded entirely because I wanted whoever made this to get some money in return for about three thousand nights of sleeping through barking dogs, coyotes, a lumber mill, and freight trains. I’m a light and anxious sleeper, and it’s worth my money just being able to wake at night and reassure myself the alarm is indeed set (without opening my eyes!) because I can still hear the nice whooshywhooshy noises

My favorite app of all time
This is not an exaggeration. White Noise is easily the peak of the personal software mountain for me and has been for years. It brings me peace and comfort. It has no icky down side - It doesn't waste my time, encourage darkness or negativity, cause screen addiction, etc. It's the rare thing in this life that's 100% good. It's 100% effective. It's 100% healing. Whoever wrote the app, whoever creates these healing soundscapes, you are true heroes to me! Thank You!!
