Do you have trouble going to sleep? Are you traveling on a plane and need a quick power nap? Does your newborn baby wake up in the middle of the night? There are numerous benefits to using White Noise:

• Helps you sleep by blocking distractions
• Relaxes and reduces stress
• Pacifies fussy and crying babies
• Increases focus while enhancing privacy
• Soothes headaches and migraines
• Masks tinnitus (ringing of the ears)

Even when you’re asleep, your brain is constantly scanning and listening for sounds. If it’s too quiet, unwanted noises such as faucet drips or police sirens can interrupt your sleep. White Noise generates sounds over a wide range of frequencies, masking those noise interruptions, so you can not only fall asleep, but stay asleep.

Long explanation of why I recommend this for tinnitus sufferers :--

I suffer from pretty bad tinnitus, it is constant and quite loud. It had gotten to the stage where it really stopped me sleeping. My doctor said try a white noise app. This one had everything I wanted, plus a great choice of sounds. I don't have it loud enough to drown out the tinnitus - no-one else would sleep, lol. Just loud enough to layer in with my inner noise.

I tried a lot of sounds, hit on an ocean breakers one that really helped. After a couple of years I was hearing the repeat too much and discovered that the upgrades had brought the possibility of blending sounds. Added in a rain fall and the looping softened.

Often I forget it is playing, if I am reading or sewing, until someone asks me to turn it down as they cannot talk to me (I did say loud tinnitus). I have even watched tv and not noticed it is still on (I have used subtitles for a long time). Somehow the sounds do not affect my life like the tinnitus does.

I vary it sometimes - the sound library is always expanding - and sometimes use an actual white or brown sound, but usually come back to these.

Wish I had something like this when my kids were small, everything those days was at most twenty minutes long. This will continue as long as you like.

I really do recommend this app to all tinnitus sufferers.

Not going to lie I certainly underestimated this app!! If you have trouble sleeping or getting to sleep on time or if you’d just like the comfort I 120% recommend this app. You can pick basically any sound to listen to as you drift off or add different sounds to a playlist which plays them all at the same time! It is amazing. Also, you can set a timer for the sounds to turn off when you think you'll be asleep which is ideal if you’re worried about your phone battery! I recommend ‘fire’, ’car rain’, ‘water’ and ‘thunder’, they clash extremely well and send me off into a beautiful deep sleep xo

Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.

My daughter will only go to sleep with white noise on. Having tried a few other apps this one is the best I've used. The adverts are visual only, and the sound works while the phone is locked. This means you don't get interruptions. Brilliant.
I've stuck with the free version as it works so well. I believe the paid version lets the noise continue when using other apps. That would be nice but it's not imperative.
One thing which would be a nice addition is a stopwatch showing how long the sounds have been playing. It would make timing naps far simpler.
