Sonata (formerly iLuvMozart) powered by the "Mozart effect" will increase your IQ and give you a boost in concentration.

A little background: "Mozart effect" was first coined by Dr. Alfred A. Tomatis, an internationally known otolaryngologist who used Mozart's music as the listening stimulus in his work to cure a variety of disorders. Later on, Dr. Rauscher, Shaw, and Ky took this research further and published an article in Nature that demonstrated an increase in IQ of 8 to 9 points when students studied while listening to Mozart's music.

Love it! My favorite music app.

Definitely a great app. I love all of the classical music it provides. All the music you have, you can listen to without wifi. And when you exit the app, the music keeps playing. You can "buy" more songs without having to actually pay. They provide ways for you to get sonata coins. I use it for reading, studying/homework, and simply for entertainment. Oh and sometimes when I have a hard time sleeping, I use it to lull me to sleep. It's free and it's never glitched or shut down. There are literally almost no ads. Which is hard to find in a free app. I can definitely say this a quality application majorly under appreciated, it's that good. Reliable, fast and free, can't get better than that.

Easy to use

Love this app. Had it over 5 years ago when my son was born because classical music soothed him to sleep. Now here I am with my second child and she loves it too! It's pretty much the only thing that is guaranteed to help soothe her. This app is simple and straightforward - none of that extra mumbo jumbo that other apps seem to have, which is my favorite thing because when I need to quickly calm my baby down the last thing I want to do is have a bunch of annoying stuff to click around on. This app plays and organizes music in a logical order and you can even rate how well the song helps you sleep, focus, etc. I would be lost these last 5 years without this!
