Ratings and Reviews
Great Premium Noise App
I really like the selection of sleep or relaxation sounds in this program a lot. If I need something to listen to, to be able to sleep or just to de-stress, Dark Noise, is what I inevitably choose almost every time.
Also, I cannot thank the developer enough for offering this app as a premium program. The fact that Dark Noise doesn't contain any greedy micro-transactions or stupid subscriptions and is just sold for one fair price is the main reason I took a chance and purchased this application. I only buy premium programs and I'm very glad to add this one to my collection.
I own more than a two handfuls of these types of noise applications and Dark Noise is easily among the best in my opinion. Thanks, again, for being a rad developer and selling Dark Noise ethically and morally as a premium program and God bless.
Sound quality is off
I agree with scampercom about the sound quality being off. The sounds sound thinned out. I use in-ear headphones (not Apple’s) to help blocked out co-workers when trying to concentrate. I usually listen to music but sometimes that can get tiresome and I prefer white noise. This app, though I really like the selection, probably wouldn’t help. The sound quality from other apps like Noisli and Noizio are better, with Wildfulness being the absolute best with 3D sound. I can mix sounds with Noisli but the app hasn’t been updated in a year or so and you can hear the looping. Noizio is updated, has more sounds than Noisli, but you can hear the looping and it requires so many in app purchases to expand the library. Wildfulness, Wildfulness 2, and it’s 3rd counterpart Sonas Island (or something like that) has beyond amazing sound quality. You can hear the looping with a few sounds but it’s biggest flaw for me is the lack of variety. It’s ALL nature sounds. There are other apps I have tried but most were unnecessarily complicated or not worth mentioning. This app is good for it’s simplicity, ease of use, features, and variety, but unfortunately not it’s sound quality.
Great sound and Responsive Developer
So this might get lost in the reviews but i wanted to review and rate this app ASAP. I've been a beta tester for this app for awhile now but had no reason to rate it until today. My dad has difficulty getting to sleep, and uses a white noise app on his phone. Tried to convince him to switch to Dark Noise a couple months ago but he wouldn't. When asked he said because of all the years he spent in the military, he fell in love with "rain on a tent" and he only found one app that did it. I submitted the feedback to have that sounds added right away. And now, the app has it thanks to the developer. And my dad is now full on using the app.
Cheers to the dev, I wasn't sure if that sound would get added, yet here we are. 5/5 all around
