Magical App for Productivity!

I downloaded this app in 2016 when I was writing my thesis. I was living alone in a flat and had no friends or family to talk with+my apartment was located in kinda isolated area. It was difficult to stay awake and to work without hearing self nagging negative sounds in my head. Suddenly heard about this app from someone I followed on a social media app, I decided to give it a try. And never regretted it! I used to play the “Coffee Shop” noise which gave exactly the same feeling of a café environment. I noticed my my productivity improved significantly and I wrote more pages/day than before. Now I’m using it for my PhD work and I recommend this app to all people who asked for little motivation or help to overcome boredom associated with academic writing.

Perfect App - highly recommended

Found asoftmurmur ages ago online and it was great for background noise - been waiting ages for the app and it doesn't disappoint. Looks good, easy to use, loads of functionality for a free app - shame that you have to buy the extra sounds (fireplace is pretty banging) but they deserve the money. Never knew I could get this excited over an app that literally just plays sounds but it's pretty great.

Market leading noise generator.

Provides background noise when I'm studying and helps me drift off to sleep too. Thankfully I can customise the sounds so I don't end up falling asleep while I'm studying! Really brilliant little app.
