Get Away, unwind & sleep great! No in-app purchases, no subscription. All included!

Can't sleep? Try Away, a high-quality sleep ambience app by award-winning audio technology innovator Franz Bruckhoff. Away simulates a rich forest full of nature sounds to explore and discover, day and night, from morning til evening. Adjust the daytime and move the virtual microphone around to find your favorite spot to unwind and sleep. Away features one of the most advanced nature sound field engines in the world, delivering an unprecedented nature audio listening experience. Hear the forest come to life around you. Get Away today, sleep great tonight!

Taptanium™ certified nature audio means that you hear only crystal clear nature sounds with absolutely zero human made noise intrusions. No people, no airplanes, no cars. Just nature. Infinite playback. Taptanium™ certified nature audio comes from the best sources such as Hawaii and has been mastered to perfection with the highest attainable level of attention to detail, utilizing artificial intelligence to detect even the most distant human-made noise intrusions that humans are almost incapable of recognizing under normal conditions. Only the highest quality nature sounds in the world are able to receive this certification.

Away features Taptanium™ neural 3D audio™. If you put on headphones, Away can create an incredible sense of immersion. The nature and water plays all around you, not just on your ears. This is called externalization, and it's encoded in a way that your brain naturally decodes as if you were there.

You will sleep, relax, meditate and focus better with Away because Away masks unwanted noise. Your ears will love Away because Away plays soothing high-quality nature sounds recorded in 3D. Your eyes will love Away because the forest comes as a motion-controlled 3D parallax illustration with daytime transitions. Get the great sleep and productivity you deserve.

Hear the wind and leaves swirling all around you, birds singing during the day, Hawaiian Coqui frogs singing at night and distant American Bull Frogs resonating through the valley. Get closer to the river or waterfall or retreat to the calm pond in the back with ducks during certain times of the day. In the morning, listen to the funny sounds of wild Hawaiian chickens recorded on the beautiful Garden Island of Kauai in 3D. Hear birds waking up and birds singing happily. Away is a treasure chest of sounds. And if you like, blend in music specifically composed and conducted for Away in Hollywood.

• The Great Away Forest with a great variety of nature sounds to discover

Gorgeous visuals and ambience!

More awesomeness from Frank Bruckhoff and team!! “Away” is different in approach, but is just as gorgeous and has options to customize the sound and visual experience. Excellent!

Devs, I do wish the UI icons would disappear completely because they are large and spoiling the gorgeous artwork. They could all reappear with a tap or double tap or give us the option.

Great app, great design, solid performance

Daily user here. This app and the others in this series, so to speak, all have a fantastic design that is beautiful, interesting to play with, and have a practical, intuitive interface.

The sounds made by this app have never seemed mechanical or repetitious like some other ambient noise apps that just loop a noise sample. It does do odd volume things once in a while, but 99.9% of the time it does what you need it to.

I don't think it has ever crashed on me.

Update: knock on wood. Sometime soon after my original review this app started crashing about half of the time I lock the screen (on both iPhone and iPad), forcing me to unlock, reopen and lock again. I still think it's a great app, and it hasn't crashed except when locking so at least it doesn't disturb you once it's running right.

I‘m on it! If you can figure out under what circumstances it crashes exactly, please drop me an email ❤️

amazing sound, among relaxation

I am Gordon Hempton fan and now I'm also a Franz Bruckhoff fan. The number of nature CD's I've bought over the years and been disappointed in the unrealistic sound has been expensive and frustrating. The magnificent sounds of nature and a simple, easy to use interface make this app well worth the money spent. Thank you Franz for another quality product. Keep 'em coming!

You're welcome! Thank you for being fabulous & enjoy!
