I really like the flexibility here. I didn’t give it the fifth star because I constantly have to restore purchases, and it doesn’t always let me.
Liked this app a lot before the switch to the outrageously priced subscription model. When they did the switch they removed all of my custom created soundscapes. Restore purchases got the sound files back, but only the sound files, not the customized soundscapes. Promised an update to restore the soundscapes, but have not yet delivered.
This was my absolute favorite app for ambient sounds. I had it on an old iPhone (different Apple ID) for a long time. I gladly paid the one-time fee for premium content. Now, I have a new iPhone (and new Apple ID) so I had to download the app again. If I understand correctly, the price is currently $7.99 weekly. That would be over $400 a year. While the app is wonderful, that price is too expensive for me. I’m been using the free sounds, but the selection is limited.
I am updating my review since the app has been fixed: This is by far my favorite meditation music app, •It plays the sounds in background and mixes with other sounds. (so you can listen to music while for example listening to an audiobook.) •It lets you import your own custom mp3 sounds. •It has adjustable volume for each sound and the overall sound. •You can save custom mixes you mad to access quickly and name them. My only negative comments, •The actual sound packs it comes with are good but I wish there were more ambient sounds, I honestly only use my own sounds in this because i prefer the ambient/music for background. •Considering that, the price is far to much. Before the update it was $5.99 and a one rime purchase, but to charge more and with a weekly rate is insane. I honestly thought this was a glitch at first it seemed so ridiculous. •I also was never able to restore my purchase wich was made before the price change, luckily I dont miss the built in sounds that much but still says alot as far as reliability. Sum up, If your looking for free and to use your own sounds this app is perfect, if your looking for a selection of nature sounds and willing to pay, this one is OK but alot of other apps have much more, better quality, and lower prices.
RUN AWAY. Don’t do it. It’s pretty but it’s sneaky. I cancelled the free trial which I didn’t want to try anyway but didn’t give me the option to skip. I already knew I wanted to use the free version. I couldn’t open my Apple ID yesterday and lo and behold today I see I’m subscribed until 2020. I’ve never been this LIVID with an App Store experience.
If you want people to get this app then there should be no free trial because you have to pay 4.99$ and plus some over us don’t have the money so you should let us have it for free and I am sorry if I said mean I am not trying to sound rude but I am tell the truth and the other than is why is it for 4+ do you think there are to young for it right know I now it might help put them to sleep but I think it should be for 9+ just for the good because you don’t know a 4 year old could get hurt with earphones in their ears and if the parents don’t know they kid could be in the hospital so I hope you understand this and I think this be a good app I just think you should not lit people pay for it if you want people to fall asleep you should not let them pay for it.It should be free and that all and again I am not trying to sound rude like that but I am trying to be honest with the app And I hope you change it to free and thank you for your time and have a good Christmas and god bless you and thank you for your time and I hope you read this thank you
I was working late, frustrated. Found the background sounds to be calming and my mood just shifted on its own.
No white or brown or continuous drone sound to drown out unwanted noise. Good wind sound but no lows to mix with.
It's my favorite nature sound app. Very helpful and creative.
I originally purchased the premium package on my old phone so now I have to re-purchase what I had? No, no thanks. Not to mention they want a yearly fee this time. Maybe I can get refunded for the original purchase. Idk
