The best free White Noise app keeps getting better!

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.

Fantastic app!

This app is brilliant. An enormous help with sleeping, by masking my tinnitus and other background noises with its own sounds. I've used this for a few years and it keeps getting better. And now it keeps playing in the background too – yeah! My personal favourite "sleeping mix" is Stream Water Flowing + Brown Noise.

Also very important: the app remains compatible with older devices, ie. those of us stuck on iOS 10.3 who can't update our OS. Not many app developers do this now and most other apps won't update because I don't have iOS 11 or even 12. So please, PLEASE to the Developers: keep this app compatible forever, OK? :)

However, there is always room for improvement:

(1) Please provide an option to display FAVOURITES (sorry, FAVORITES!) as a LIST (as for Sounds & Mixes): it's so much better to see them all at once in a list, rather than having to scroll 1-by-1.
Also please add a BUTTON for FAVOURITES at the bottom of all lists (like the current buttons for "Sounds", "Mixes" & "Playlist"): at present, you have to go to the main menu to view Favourites.

(2) Please add a CANCEL button in Mix Pad, so I can abandon my experimental edits; at present the only way to leave this screen is DONE, which saves changes. (Or force-closing the app – but that shouldn't be necessary in a quality app.)

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
