Wake up Alarm please

I absolutely love this app. It’s range of sounds are great and all the sounds are top quality. I love being able to create my own soundscapes from the available noises.

The only 2 things that would make it perfect are more noises (obviously) and more importantly- I would love the ability to have this as an alarm clock where I could set it for say - 6am - and then set how long a period I want the sound to increase from 0-100 % so for instance I could set it at 10 mins so the sound starts subtly coming in at 05:50 and by 6 it’s at 100% volume.

I would love that so hopefully the devs read this and can do it 🤞

A solid app

It’s a solid app worth the money. There are many back ground noises to choose from including some peculiar ones such as construction sites but whatever works for you, my favourite is the space ship. The app graphics and UI is beautifully designed and works smoothly. Each noise has its own little animation which I think is cool. You can set it to when you it to turn off using a timer or a set time. There’s some themes to fit your mood and also shortcuts for putting things quickly on play. And finally there’s a goose button too, I’ll leave you to figure that out

Wonderful app – but it’s developed a maddening bug

I gave this app five starts because it’s a lifesaver *and* it’s well-designed to be a great iOS/iPadOS app. But ever since the latest iOS/iPadOS versions, Dark Noise has developed a maddening AirPods-related bug.

If I remove an earpiece of my AirPods Pro then the Dark Noise app pauses – this is the correct behaviour. But when I put the earpiece back into my ear, the app doesn’t resume; not only that, but when I tap Play on the Standby or Control Center displays, nothing happens. I have to go back into the app and restart Dark Noise from there – truly annoying. Please fix!
