scate727 - Puts me to sleep every night
Be sure to get the White Noise Market app if you get this, with both of them you have the best and widest selection of free sounds you can get on apps like these hands down. If you've already tried of all the sleep apps that lock out all the good sounds unless you pay, you'll really appreciate this one. Tons of free sounds publicly uploaded and some uploaders even take requests. Even the premium sounds are free at a slightly lower quality. You'll find anything from beautiful thunderstorms to some dude squishing puddy in his hands. After you've found all the sounds you can search for on the market you can put them all into your own mix, change the pitch, position where you want the sounds to be. i like letting the sounds roam around freely in my headphones and you can even change the speed at which the sounds move around. I love how much freedom this app combined with the Market gives you for free. I'll spend my money on the premium version of this before I spend a penny on the other apps trying to sell me a limited amount of sounds i can't even preview in a mix first. Glad I got this one and I can delete all the other apps i've tried. The fact this app has helped me sleep for the past couple months while being diverse enough that i can always try something new with it deserves all my appreciation
Yo estoy dat gurlzzz - Love it!! No longer need melatonin nor caffeine!
I have not been able to sleep well for a very long time, as a result of mental health issues, homework, and other stressors. It would take three melatonin pills, a heavy fan, and a humidifier in my room to get me to sleep more than 8 hours. Even after sleeping for 12 hours, more than three times my normal sleep time, I woke up feeling half dead. I consumed a lot of caffeine as a result, with 2-3 coffees a day and a red bull in the mornings. I needed help, and my doctor/neighbor/friend recommened this app. I had tried other white noise apps before, but none really worked. This was not the case for this app! Never had I used a white noise app with so many options. The volume and several other settings are adjustable, and the diversity and range for this app is astounding. My struggles were almost cured, I can sleep longer and less fitfully without drugs. I wake up feeling refreshed to some degree. The best part- it's free!!! 10/10, would recommend.
Riley Delles - Great App!
This app is really great, and it lets you choose from a bunch of different sounds, such as rain, ocean waves, camp fire and many more! It also includes kinda strange sounds like vacuum, hair dryer, crowded room and heartbeat. My favorite sound is cars driving, and if you combine it with rain on a car roof, it’s very relaxing! Oh yeah, you can combine sounds! If you create mix, you can combine as many sounds as you want to create a really good sound! Some good one are rain storm and cat purring, cars and rain on a car roof, and ocean, wind, fire, and jungle! You can also record your own sounds! You can record something out in nature, or something at home if you’re going on a long trip, and if you get sick of the sounds they have, there’s a website where you can download additional sounds put up by the community completely for free! I’m gonna stop now, cause I sound like a commercial. 10/10 would white noise again!
Cyborge No More - Wake up feelin like BEYONCÉ
You will literally wake up feeling like a goddess. Listen people life is crankin. Constant sleep deprivation is a way of life. I wish I'd been the guy who invented Starbucks because regardless of what anyone tells you that's what America runs on and I'd be a millionaire. Sleep had become a distant memory in my life, like a lover from the past. THEN. WAIT FOR IT. Like a sunny day in the black of winter, this app rushed in and turned my world upside down. It was a whole new world, literally a dazzling place I never knew. Now I drift off to sleep to the sound of running water and when I awake I feel as if I've been handed free ice cream on a sweltering day. I feel alight, refreshed, and full of new belief that I will make it. I can conquer. No longer will I live like a cyborg with no feeling and complete disdain from lack of sleep. I can be better. I can be anything. Most days, I want to be BEYONCÉ. So...if you're weary, if you're tired, if you're running out of options, get this app, because your worth it and you too can Bey anything your wanna Bey.
Catlover24675 - White Noise Addict
I am literally addicted to white noise because I can not stand silence. It’s constantly on at home and I also keep on constantly at work. (Luckily I have a private office). If I’m in a room in my house where I don’t have a white noise machine, I use this app. I also use the app when I travel instead of packing one of my machines because It’s so much easier. I like the variety of noise this app offers—pink noise is my favorite. The volume is great- it definitely goes up loud enough to not only block out silence, but also block out unwanted noise. I have peace of mind knowing that if one of my white noise machines stops working that I can just use this app until it can be replaced, and I’ll still have decent white noise. I definitely prefer this app over the Marpac Dohm white noise machine, which is one of the top white noise machines on the market. This is a great app, and I highly recommend it.
mfourur - Can combine it with other audio!
As my anxiety has gotten worse it has gotten harder to quiet my mind at night, and I often found myself lying awake for hours even with my ambient sounds (from another app). Listening to podcasts helps calm my mind but the intro music/laughter/inconsistent volume/etc. can make them difficult to sleep to. I researched ambient noise apps that could play with other audio and fortunately found this one! You can even adjust the audio balance between the two. Now I fall asleep quickly to my favorite podcast/rain noise combination :) The customization options are really impressive, especially for a free app! My only suggestion is that the audio balance could be pushed even further as the podcast audio is still quite loud even at the lowest setting, but this app has been such a blessing I really cannot complain.
teamsometimessleeps - If you like to sleep...
Been using this app since my baby was 1 month. After 3 hrs of my baby nonstop crying because he fights his sleep & momma wasn’t getting any sleep my husband took him to the bathroom and turned the faucet (a tip from his pediatrician) and he instantly fell out! Of course it annoyed me that my husband had him for 2 mins and he put him to sleep. So I did some research and found this app. Thank god, if not for this app our water bill would’ve made us homeless. I am able to sleep train with it and it also puts my husband to sleep which is a plus! Now my baby knows what time it is when he hears “heavy rain” and it’s convenient because you can use your phone normal while it’s on. So get your Bluetooth speakers and leave it at their crib side and Go about your business with your phone.
LoriAgent - Good App, glad I have it
I live in an apartment and have two small dogs, one of whom barks at every voice, every car door, every other animal she hears in the parking lot. I used to keep the TV, radio, or floor fan running to muffle the street noises so she didn't hear them. With this app I was able to record the sound of the fan running and play that instead over a bluetooth speaker sitting next to her bed. No more TV or radio playing when I don't want to listen to it! The "fan" sound totally calms her and keeps her from barking, all without running a real fan. I feel this way is safer, cheaper, etc. AND, an added bonus is the volume control. I can turn the white noise on at a lower volume level than the volume of the floor fan and get the same result. This app is a daily stable in my home.
wildflower🌻 - Block out that external noise!
I got very accustomed to the noise of an idling engine to create that white noise while on the job. Used the little fans to create some sort of white noise and they are pretty awesome and have done the trick but over the years the motors have gotten QUIETER and the arent as efficient at creating that turbine engine sound. Plus it can be a pain to travel with the small fan... ( takes up too much room !! ) White noise really blocks out noise! Ive only used the air conditioner sound and its great for travel since all i needis the ear buds. Last monday I stayed at a motel room in Kenley, NC. and I slept so hard and actually woke myself up 2 times from my snoring because the White Noise app worked so well!! Let it be known I was WELL RESTED & HAPPY for the long day ahead because of this app! I recommend.
Phil DeGrave - Awesome but I have recently encountered a problem
I love this app. I quite literally can’t sleep without it. I have been using it for many years; however, with version 7.4.4, I have begun to experience a sleep-interrupting problem, the volume unexpectedly (and on its own) suddenly increases to full. I sleep with head phones plugged in (so the brown noise doesn’t disturb my wife). I will be fully asleep and then suddenly the volume will go full blast, jolting me awake. The volume control stops responding. I turn it down, but it immediately returns to full blast. This happens until I close the app completely. I have an iPhone 7 running iOS 12.0.1. I use standard Apple headphones. Again, no problems for years. This probable started after I updated the app. Still love the app, though.
sowritesauds - Drains phone battery
I’ve been using the free version of this app for years, and love the quality and variety of the sounds, but it completely drains the battery of my iPhone every time. Last night I had my iPhone charged to 97%, turned it on battery saver mode, and closed all other apps and location services off, before turning on the White Noise and setting an alarm for 8 hours later. White Noise was the only app running on my phone. Woke up when the white noise turned off 8 hours later and my phone was completely dead. The battery drain happens every time I use the app without my phone being on the charger, whether I start at 40% battery or 100%. I prefer not to keep my phone on the charger overnight for several reasons - fire safety, protect battery life - but I can’t risk using this app and missing an important alarm due to a dead phone.
0 nicknames available - Battery Leech
This has been a great app that I have used for years. I would give it 5 stars until the last update. Recently, after the last update, it drains my iPad. Today, my iPad wasn’t in use from the time I got out of bed until I sat down to relax for the evening. 14.5 hours later, my iPad had gone from 100% battery charge to 7%. It’s a new iPad Pro so it’s not a battery issue. I have been closing the app in the morning and did it again this morning because I thought that would prevent the battery drain. Apparently not. I rechecked to make sure that I had closed it down and I had. I checked the battery status in the settings and it shows that this app was the culprit. Please fix this. Thanks.
annalieseagain - New Update Has Broken My App, Been A Favorite For Years
I have used this app consistently for years. I have even logged over 100 days of listening! I prefer it to other white noise, such as the kind offered by paid apps such as Sleep Cycle or Headspace. There really is just nothing that works as well. However, the app was just updated and now my sounds aren’t working. I hit play and nothing comes out. I’m not sure if this is a glitch on my end (I just imported my first sound from the White Noise Marker, though I would hope that doesn’t break my app). However I am pretty sure it’s related to the new update. I’m not sure if anyone else is experiencing this, but I would love a fix so I can use this fantastic app again!
TL;DR— This is a fantastic app (the best for white noise) and I would rate it 5 stars if the most recent update had not rendered it unusable.
MonSta19 - Terribly Helpful
Living in third world countries as a family of missionaries, this app has helped us immensely to make any sleeping environment instantly normal. Same noise, same deafening of ambience, and four fantastic sleeping children is a HUGE PLUS! We have even used this white noise app in airports while our little ones napped on benches. Seriously, this is a lifesaver and I am so thankful we stumbled across this app years ago. I wish I could rate higher than 5 stars because this app has never had a single flaw or problem in the 4 years we have had it. Same trusty app for years and years of amazing sleep. And my kiddos even enjoy playing with the different sounds to kill time too. Thank you, for this OUTSTANDING app!!!!
Swopinator - Sound stops when switching apps
This app earned my 5-star rating until I learned its one very inconvenient hiccup. It, without a doubt, has the best sound of any I’ve heard yet - even better than my embarrassingly high-priced standalone sound machine. Truly, the only drawback is that you can’t go into any other apps without the sound turning off. For some people who may use this app only for sleep that is absolutely no problem. For me, however, that is a more bothersome problem as I use my phone for contacting clients, navigation, scheduling appointments, etc. When my relaxing zen mindset is interrupted because I need to answer an email, it takes me a good few minutes to get back in the zone. If they ever allow this app to continue in the background while using other apps, I would gladly reinstate my five star rating.
finally at rest - Awesome app
I have a lot of trouble shutting off my mind and blocking out noises when trying to slow down and go to sleep or focus. The sounds help me block out the noises that keep me alert and light sleeping. I love the night crickets, they take me back to my childhood home in the mountains of Virginia in my parents log cabin. In that familiarity I am relaxed and at peace. I have been using this app for a week now and it has helped with my sleep quality tremendously. I have started using the other white noise options as well at work when studying new plan reviews and projects. I intended to use it more and more in my day to day life for relaxation and meditation. Highly recommended and it is life changing.
Timooooooihunt hehehsns - Puts me to sleep every time
Best app ever! I've had this app for about a year now and I listen to it when I've had a long day and need a quick nap, it puts me to sleep right away within minutes the sounds are so soothing! Love how you can mix and match the sounds as well, some of the sounds overpower the others but you can now make one sound louder and another sound quieter. Which is great.
I also listen to this when I fall asleep at night, and waking up to the sounds of a fire with crickets chirping with a river flowing, man oh man it's great! I love the outdoors so it makes me feel like I'm actually camping or backpacking but I'm in the comfort of my own bed! 10/10 would recommend.
LaBlancaLoca - White noise
Before I found this app I was sleeping with my hairdryer on at night. I have MS and nights are harder for me to fall sleep. I can sleep like a baby in the daytime. With the white noise app I don't need my hairdryer and I fall asleep within 15 minutes. I set the timer to shut off and never even hear it turn off. I don't use many of the different sounds but two so the lite version is good enough for me. I recommend this app to friends and will continue to use it.
The only down fall is I wish the app would stay open when going off the screen. You can't do anything with the sound on. If you go anywhere else on phone the app stops.
Brook the teddy bear lover - nice but creepy sounds
(apologies in advanc for the long review) I always use the air conditioner sound and it really helped me sleep but the one time I tried listening to the stream water flowing I swear I heard someone drowning and it was super creepy. It was a few minutes into the sound and it started with lots of splashing which seemed normal-ish but then I heard a man gasping for air and more frequent splashing and it really freaked me out. Then a few months/maybe a year later (a few nights ago for me) I was listening to the air conditioner (which I've listened to nearly every single night for years) and I heard 8-bit music? But then it became a much lower pitched sound and so I paused it and resumed it to see if it would stop and then I heard talking. Really weird. It doesn't bother me too too much, I'm just leaving this (along with the bad review, sorry) for anyone else looking for similar things. Otherwise nice app :')
magenta.garrix - Sleep quality has greatly improved!
This app has really made a difference! I lobe it! Before downloading this app my sleep quality was really bad. I wasn’t getting enough and whatever rest I did get it was extremely restless rarely was I in REM. I fall asleep with the Brown Noise and for the last week and half...I have been feeling super great! I don’t wake up groggy. I feel so refreshed in the mornings now. I went from 7.2 hours to 10 hours of sleep. I sleep deeper and rarely is my sleep restless. I’m in REM more! I love the difference I feel and I love the results my FitBit has been showing. I feel and see the difference! Thank you White Noise! Thank you!
Player 152724 - Turns off when phone is locked **UPDATED**
Update: I’ll put the update here first so nobody reads my rant first and stops there...
Turns out it was an iOS update that turned off the background audio. Thanks to the developer for responding to my review to let me know. I’d suggest adding that somewhere in the app description if it’s not already there. Also, I enjoy the ability to record & make my own mixes to sleep to. I have beach waves, waterfalls, summer thunderstorms, and my favorite is a babbling stream in the woods. It’s like capturing an audio “snapshot” of places I’ve been.
Original rant: (sorry, my bad)
What were you thinking with this update, besides forcing users to upgrade to the paid version? If you have to leave the phone unlocked, it overrides “do not disturb” thus making the app useless for white noise to sleep with. Seriously? I honestly don’t think $0.99 is too much to ask, and would gladly have paid that, but this just reeks of greed. What happens when you decide to up it to $1.99 on the next update? Or $4.99...
MeggO32 - Love and highly recommend
I love this app so much! We have a 2 month old who still sleeps in our room at night and he loves the brown noise and ocean waves crashing. We turn the app on with our phone or iPad and he is asleep within seconds. The background noise has also helped him to start sleeping through the night now that he doesn't hear cars beeping and the neighbors dogs barking at random hours of the night. I also love using this app when I need a quick power nap during the day and I don't want to hear the tv downstairs or my husband and daughter talking. I never take the time to rate apps but this one deserves it!!
_StarWarsDogs_ - Amazing!
This is an amazing app it usually takes me like an hour to sleep when I'm in my bed and when I'm at my aunts house I sleep in their room. They put white noise on (the fan one) and boom. I'm fast asleep and I sleep in so late with it usually I wake up early or wake up in the mid of the night and grumpy in the morning. I recently had a flood (pipe broke) and so we have to tear out all our floors and our kitchen right now they blocked off the kitchen so mold doesn't come. We have fans and humidifiers and they r super loud and annoying so I use white noise to distract me from it and it works! ITS SUCH A GOOD APP YOU MUST GET IT! Wow I didn't realize how much I typed lol
DustinRay16 - Relaxation at your Fingertips
After having used this for a while, I have to say this is a wonderful application. Good selection of sounds, high quality recordings, and the ability to merge them together into a mix and play with the speed and pitch is an extra plus. The only thing I'd really criticize is the fact that some of the sounds are so similar they almost bleed into each other and drown each other out. Which I guess is the idea, but I'd like for the sounds to have a bit more variety and character. But! I'm sure that'll come in a later update, so for now, this app gets me approval!
Bhallman._08 - White noise has changed my life.
Hi, I’m Braydon Hallman and I’m 12 years old. I have grown up having night terrors and every time I went to sleep I would get scared. My mom started useing white noise and I always thought why she would always wake up energized. After i talked to my self I downloaded white noise. I used it for the first time and it was amazing. I was never scared because I could hear the noises of nature. From the point on from downloading white noise I never got night terrors again. Thank you to the people that thought of white noise and what you have done for me. I recommend you to downloading white noise.
Amanda_Schumann - Reality checker
I suffer, and I mean suffer, from adult nightmare syndrome. I have a sever trauma from my past that manifests in my sleep. I dream so vividly that it feels completely real. I'll think I've told people things, and in reality I only dreamed I did. My sleep stats are utterly ridiculous. My therapist diagnosed me with PTSD, and recommended I find something to play at night to help me. Playing this while I sleep does not stop my nightmares--but when I do wake up and hear the tone I've chosen, I know I'm safe. So, I still have nightmares, and startle awake--but hearing my tone instantly calms me; because I know I'm home safe in my bed, and not trapped in my dream.
Davidbloom - Best white noise app hands down
They don’t cheap out on the free version or clog the user experience with ads. It is easy to use with great variety of sounds. But there is a small thing that I never thought about until I started commuting from Seattle to NYC on the red eye. I can listen to the soothing sounds of rain for more than 5 hrs across and barely impact my battery. That’s great engineering. Apparently on my red eye this week the people in the row in front chatted half way across the country. I slept in happy oblivion thanks to my Bose noise cancelling headphones and this white noise app. I got to New York down only 5% battery. Amazing.
Do you really need my name? - I wish the sounds would continue in the background
I like this app for the most part. I like the recordings, but the sounds only play when the app is open, meaning you can't start the sounds and switch to another app or the home screen and have the sound continue. Once you leave the app, even if it is still open in the background, the sounds stop.
I don't just use white noise apps for sleep, they help with my tinnitus, and also with stress, so having the sounds play while in another app is preferred. It doesn't matter if the sounds are better than other apps, if you can't always use it the way you want to...
Cliff_787 - A Very Helpful App
This free app plays soothing natural sounds (“white noise”) that allow me not to hear conversations or music around me that would keep me from concentrating on my work or reading or from falling asleep. I am an audio learner, so I’m very bothered by irrelevant talking, singing, music, street noises, etc. Thus I find this app very helpful.
My only quibble is that the app plays only when it is in the foreground, meaning that I can’t read or look things up on my phone without the soothing “white noise” ceasing to play. I thus need to use two devices if I want to use it and be online at the same time, one device for the app and another for everything else.
Lovethesunset - I love this!
I love this app so very much. It helps me sleep so much and I sometimes have trouble falling asleep. I really don’t like sleeping in silence because it makes me very uncomfortable and unsafe for some reason. So this is the perfect app for me. I also really like that you can create your own sounds that are comforting to you. I just feel comfortable and calm with this app. I don’t just use it to fall asleep though. Sometimes I use when I am studying for exams or tests and it helps me get in the right mindset without the stress or anxiety. It helps me focus a lot better. So yes, I highly recommend this app.
Nickon Smithers - So reliable
I’ve used this app for about 7 years now and have found that whichever sound you know you’d sleep to can easily be attained with this app. My personal favorite is the extreme rain and it has gotten me through the best sleep of my life. Many other noises on the app will also just cause you to relax so quickly and fall asleep. Anytime I get a new phone or backup my storage onto a new phone, honestly, my first priority is making sure I have the white noise app downloaded so I know I’m guaranteed amazing sleep. After all this time, thank you white noise...really.
kick/shoot/score23 - Yesss!
I grew up in a family where every night we had a humidifier, loud fan or a sound machine. The nights when the power went out was a long and people woke up sleep deprived. When we traveled there was always the debate on wether to use up room for a sound machine or a fan. When my dad discovered this app we all were amazed cause we could choose the sound that we liked and adjust the volume as we wished. Plus there is the option to use a clock, alarm clock and make your own sounds! I am so thankful to have this app!
Locordz - Best thing ever
My newborn baby had trouble sleeping or even getting a good nap, I heard about this app and wanted to try it out even though I was never really “use a sound to help my baby sleep better” type, since my first born was always a great sleeper. But WOW this app is literally magic!! Not only does it calm my baby to sleep so much better and faster, but it also relaxes me and releases so much stress! There are sounds that you would have never thought would be so relaxing!! I recommend this to everyone! Not only mothers and / or fathers to use for their babies, but I mean EVERYONNNEE.
Vamttopgal - Magic for babies
Downloaded this so that I would always have white noise with me for my baby. It's pure magic! The fan sound calms him immediately. It still amazes me. He's fussing, I turn on the a/c fan sound loud, drop my phone next to him and poof! he settles. The purring cat is also great. The app is super easy to use and will play whatever sound you select for as long as you like. Has a night mode, which makes the screen dark.
One drawback, which I don't care about because the app works so well, are the spam pop ups that appear while the app is open.
niksbogs - Great for sensitive ears and light sleepers
I have sensitive ears so of course I'm a light sleeper-- but I can hear the loops in audio recordings that (most) people would not notice. Every single sleep app has let me down. I hear the sound loop over and over and I wait for it everytime and I can't sleep. Not this one. I have now played over 2853 hours worth of "Brown Noise" since I downloaded. "Pink Noise" is fabulous for my sleep as well. I live above a very busy street with nightly live music and this baby helps put me to sleep everytime. Thank you to the creators of these fine noises.
Buttons3991 - Fantastic app!!
I absolutely love this app! It works perfectly when I'm trying to sleep and need something to help calm my mind when it's over active. Something to help drowned out unwanted noise from the neighbors or even calm sounds when I'm enjoying a good book. I use it everyday! The only thing I would like to see different is that the sounds would continue while working in the background. Especially when I get a text or email and go to look at them the sounds stop and you need to go back to the app to start it up again. It would be nice to have it continue during that time.
TheGirk - I love it!
I've only listened to the Ocean Waves Crashing, because that's my favorite sound to fall asleep to. I fall into a nap every time I visit the beach and I've been searching for the perfect sound for when I'm away and this is it for me! It allows me to fall into a nap or night sleep so much quicker than before. I'm a night person so I can stay up throughout the night and sleep my day away, but life doesn't work that way all the time so this app is a life saver! It's like a baby with white noise, just necessary for sufficient and relaxing sleep! Thank you!
The_Peanvt - Best White noise app!!!
I normally sleep with a loud fan on at night because that’s what my family used to do, and now I can’t sleep without one! I used to stay up all night trying to sleep without a fan, and melatonin never helped me. I finally discovered this app a year or two ago, and have loved it ever since. Not only is it useful for just white noise, but there are also things like crowded room sounds, purring cat sounds, and any sounds that you need to help you relax. Absolutely the best white noise app on the market! 🙂
Taylortot0018 - OMG GREAT APP!
So i struggle with falling asleep at my regular time, i usually stay up late and do stuff not good for my health like, going on my phone everyday past midnight, or something. I needed an app that helped me with my “thingy”. I found this app a while ago but i figured to review it, so others can find it and get it! One thing is, it has endless sounds and you can make your own!! It’s an app for young and old! My little brother uses it on my moms phone, my older brother uses it, I use it. As SOON as I turn this on, I’m dead asleep! Great app 5 stars! Highly recommended 👌🏻👌🏻
Kat Foster - Lifesaver!
I use this app on my iPod for the kids room, on my phone for my room and on every tablet/device we have. When the kids fall asleep in the car and I want to drown out heavy traffic noise I put it on! At home we all use it to sleep (we live on a high traffic road in the early morning and the kids sleep right through now). I used to stick the phone next to a pack and play if we were visiting friends, or in the stroller at a crowded outing and the boys would sleep right through all sorts of noises! Great to have a portable sound machine!
Paparoach2909 - I can sleep again !!
I have been having issues with falling asleep lately. I have tried countless apps.... nothin worked until I got this one. The sounds you can pick are great ! All different ones to pick from. I used the rain one and to my surprise I slept like a baby ! I felt so rested when I woke up this morning ! Thank you ! Thank you ! I highly recommend this app ! There’s nothin like it out there ! I will be telling friends & family about it for sure !! Thank you again makers of this app - you have made sleeping enjoyable again !!
soundoctrine64 - Love this App!
I sleep to this app every night! I use the pink noise generator and it is a true “random” generator; not just a sample that loops over and over! I used to sleep to a looping sample like that and if I happened to hear the loop it would keep me awake!
This app also has the cool feature of a clock on the face while you sleep. It allows you to set the color and brightness so that when you wake up in the middle of the night you can see the time; but it’s not so bright that it keeps you awake.
Well worth it! Get this app! You’ll be glad you did!
Aikman73 - Simply Perfect
I’ve been a lifelong sleeper with a fan at my bed, and I’ve worked 26 years in the business world with a focus on facilities. From sleeping to heads down working to just seeking a relaxing background, this app has worked for it all. Love the sound variances and the simple ease of scroll and play. This app has been a lifesaver when looking for a good night sleep and a productivity enhancer when trying to drown out the distractions of the outside world. I would and have recommended it to many friends, family, fellow travelers and coworkers.
LemonElephant04 - Useful app! Great sound barrier and relaxer❤️😴
LOVE IT!!! The “air conditioning” sound on this app is primarily what I use. When it’s too cold to turn my fan on, this is pretty close. It’s enough to drown out the other noises of silence in my head if that makes sense. However it’s not noticeable enough to be annoying and the volume of the white noise doesn’t interfere with my alarm volume!:)) Occasionally I try out the other naturey noises too, which I also enjoy (the air conditioning one is my top pick though still) Very useful and peaceful app for sure!!!🥱📱😄😴
JustCallingItAsISeeIt - Amazing app! I truly wake up refreshed
I am so blown away. I wake up as if I had been wearing my uncomfortable cpap gear. By accident I fell asleep with the airline white noise the first night and tried it again. Wow, it works wonderfully. I am going to upgrade to the paid version today. Thanks again
FYI developer you should make in your free app, some links to reach you or for us to give you reviews. I used upgrade to locate you again in the App Store. I tried many of the other apps and they appeared weak or unacceptable compared to yours. Cheers!
Not so fast penguin - Sweet Sleep
We used this app for the first time when our hotel room was right next to the interstate and were delighted at how it seemed to cancel out the highway noise. Now we use it every night, Bluetoothed to a speaker on a nightstand. Even though it's quiet where we live, the sounds we can select from this app provide a lovely and soothing background and put us to sleep quickly. I do wish the app would continue to work in the background so I could do other tasks on my phone without shutting down the sound.
Lovebug Peanut Flipper - Love the record and loop feature
Our toddler falls asleep with a white noise machine. I don't like to carry it when we travel, so this app is great. None of the built in sounds matched what we use at home, but the app lets you record your own sounds and then put it on a loop. It made it really easy to put my son down for a nap while we were out of town.
My only recommendation would be to allow it to continue to play even when I was pen another app. I wanted to read on my phone while my son fell asleep, but wasn't able to. It's not a deal breaker for me, but it would improve the app.
Zoogirl7 - Best lite white noise app
After 2 days and downloading several other app, all that were almost useless unless you paid a subscription, I finally found this one. In just one night i could tell this was the best i had found. Had a good selection of sounds and the ability to mix those sounds with out having to pay extra. If i wish i can download more sounds and not have to pay a subscription. Every thing i needed for just some background noise to go to sleep with.
Azzuu88 - Fall asleep fast every night
This app is great, it has a huge variety of sounds perfect for any background noise preference, but personally I only really ever use the brown noise setting. I put on the brown noise and set a 40 min sleep timer then start to play solitaire just to kinda zone out. I usually get to sleep within 10 minutes! And whenever I wake up randomly in the night due to cat making noises or general discomfort, i can easily get back to sleep by switching the brown noise back on to snooze again quick.
i dont want to be named - Love it one complaint
I love this app it allows me to be able to sleep better but the one thing that frustrates me about this app is that it can’t run in the background I have to sleep on face time with my friend or else I can’t stay a sleep every night plus I have the app but the app won’t play the noise when I go to the home screen or back to the face time screen and I want it to play but there’s nothing 8n the settings to make it do that so I have to use two different devices which I shouldn’t have to just because this app doesn’t play in the background.

SdM7777 - Awesome App
I love this app. I’m a light sleeper and moved to an apartment on a street that is way busier than I thought it would be. Thanks to this app I can sleep all night including through street sweepers around 2am, garbage collectors around 5am, trucks from about 5:30am and general traffic including buses after that.
I had bought a white noise machine but that didn’t solve the problem. Now I listen to this app all night through sleep headphones (the ones where the speakers are in a headband so you’re not wearing uncomfortable earbuds or bulky headphones).
Thank you so much to the developers for giving us so many wonderful features in the free version. I don’t really need to upgrade to the paid version but I’m going to do it anyway to support the generous developers, they’ve given me the precious gift of sleep and deserve to be paid for all the updates and free features they keep adding on.
Go ahead and download this version - you have nothing to lose and lots to gain.
PS I recommended this app to my sister for her newborn baby and it worked a treat. Just don’t put the sound up too high.
W130938 - I love this app
This is one of the best apps I have on my iPad. I am a light sleeper and need to have some sort of background noise (not music) going thru the night to help me sleep. I was going to buy a white noise machine, but then read about this app. It's brilliant. Took me a few nights to realise it still works with my iPad cover down, and it hardly uses any battery power that way. I am partial to the brown noise option. Fantastic.
Boyblue6614 - Great app
Easy to use one tiny banner ad at the bottom you can add your own sounds and mix together some of there’s and get to play with the sound I use thunder storm heavy rain and ocean waves as white noise when I’m trying to get to sleep I set the timer for an hour and it shuts off I’m so happy with this version I hope they add more sounds with future updates
Bonehead71 - New version is a disappointment
Have used White Noise for years. It’s simplistic features made it perfect. Put it on before bed and turn it off the next morning by opening my phone and minimising the app. It never got in the way of music, podcasts, etc when I left the house for work.
Now , even if I kill the app in the morning (double tap and flick up) it wants to take over. Jump in the car and guess what starts playing- White Noise. If I play around with the settings to try and get it back to how it was, it just doesn’t work.
Please give me the old version back! I’ll be looking for an alternative.
1SoZ - Need help sleeping or relaxing?
You should get this app because it will help you sleep! Or if you want to relax better here is the app to do so!!! I now have a better sleep schedule because of this app. You need to get it! Also it is 100% Free! So that is what I think of it you may think other wise but, in my opinion you should get it!
Cometsprite - Excellent!!
The best white noise app I've used! Helps me sleep through the day after night shift as it blocks out all the normal daytime noise. I've tried a few apps and this is the best by a mile!! Love it!!! Just wish it would still play when I have to flick to other apps. That's my only complaint.
stahlwolle-mo - Well equipped with features & sounds
Couldn't recommend this app any more! Even the free version stands out far above the competition in terms of featuring useful genuine white noise/nature sounds, not predominantly yoga music or a very limited choice of free sounds like the others!
jordilea - Best white noise app!
I've been using this app for almost two years now for my son and it's the best! The air conditioner noise has helped him to get to sleep and stay asleep since he was a small baby. I even use it too now.
GoGirl! - Brilliant
This app is brilliant. I have tinnitus and it is difficult to get to sleep. My ENT doctor suggest I try this. I put the timer on (part of this app) with the night clock mode (also part of the app) and I am asleep so easily now. Thank you. 😊👍💤
leximurauer - Really good
Seriously this is such a good app! You can make your own mixes and there are plenty of sounds to choose from.
For a free app it is awesome! So nice for background sound as-well as to help with sleep.
Highly recommend :)
Sevastian Grimm - Definitely Reccomend
Since I downloaded this app just to try it out I've been using it every night, made my own mix and have been sleeping better.
Worth a shot right?
sssssssssmmmmmmmcccc - Stops after few minutes
It was good but stops after few minutes so no point
Proche - Tinnitus
This app helps me not to focus on the deafening tinnitus I have in both ears and allows me to get at least some sleep without going crazy over my own ringing sound. Thank you
eaglehawk28 - Great noise selection
Including city traffic, lol. Wish the sound would keep playing even while app is in the background though
Flicdogg - Perfect for baby
Just had a baby and was trying to find a good, free white noise app. This one is perfect - loads of sounds, plays when phone is asleep etc.
tantucky - Rest easy!
I struggle with insomnia and this app has been a god send. Took me about a week to train my brain to fall asleep to the noise but now I get such good sleep because of it.
Egapmada - Great app but impossible to upgrade
Excellent free app but I can't upgrade to the paid version which has no adds and plays in the background of other apps. Can someone help me give you money??!!
kinkycatlady - Air conditioner is like a lovely spacecraft
You will sail into the outer reaches of the (known) galaxy thanks to this app. Very good. Saves me cleaning dust out of my fan. Also saves freezing from said fan in winter.
daftaussie - Very good
Good range of sounds, easy to make playlist so noise continues for a long period of time. Only negative is noise only plays when app is open the foreground, if you do anything else the noise stops
Robfuscate - Fit for purpose
A great little app which does exactly what it is meant to. I use it all the time when travelling and, when my white noise machine at work dies, I'll be using it there instead ... it's that good.
*lemm** - Fade out
I like the app but I used to have one that faded the sound in and out when turning it on or off so it wasn’t just instantly loud once it started or instantly quiet once it stopped. It was more gentle for having it for my baby.
Janne Lee - Portable sleep aid
I love the White noise and pink noise on my phone app. When I am travelling and sleeping on noisy surroundings it helps block out the outside noise and helps me get a good nights sleep
hi.02 - Really great, but...
I don’t know if it’s just me but the white noise sounds like it gradually becomes louder in one ear and moves to the next, repeating this. It never used to sound like this? It’s really annoying.
mcvidler - Game changer
This app had changed the way I relax. I use it for sleeping and it’s a game changer when on long haul flights.
It’s my favourite app on my phone.
Tiger Princess 54 - Why I like it so much
I really like this nice soothing sounds, because they just let out all the stress that I have on my mind. It really works when it comes to night time, just listening to that when I go to sleep is amazing
So I would like to thank you for letting me use it and for all the amazing sounds it makes. It’s just outstanding
Exaustron - Works well for me!
I use this most nights to relax myself off to sleep. Good choice of sounds, highly recommended.
Chocdolphin13 - Love this app!
I love this app so much bit I can't say too much cause I'm about to use it to go to sleep! Thanks for making this app ❤️
Vadar76 - Great app
Really helps me sleep through the night. Can’t recommend this app enough.
Carla-g560 - Best app I've used!
I have tried many apps but this one is by far the best. I can't sleep without it.
SkinLovr - Amazing!
It’s superb! Highly recommend this app if you have problems getting to sleep, the noises are so calming!
Jimbo jones 888 - May come with pop up ads even in paid version
I had an old iPhone 4. Get pop up ads even In the paid version. Very annoying when trying to get the little one to sleep.
Lots of futzing around to get back to the app to adjust the settings.
Aspirationals - Revolutionized sleep
No more disturbances. Great app and very effective. Also love the night clock feature.
Nooggs - Peace & quiet & noise
Works really well. Help me sleep and study in the environment where there are a lot of distracting noises. Very soothing. The range is great as well.
Scarby12 - Love it but....
I love this app, but the alarm noise is horrible to have to wake up to, maybe something a little more gentle?! Other than that, it's been great!!😊
Cheeky8012 - Great white noise for bubba
I used the air con app and works a treat. Plays all night long. Thank you
Aniñabas - Awesome but...
I just wish the noise didn't stop when I get out of the app...sometimes I need my phone when I'm calming baby...
petrichoir4 - Odd noises in the background.
Sounds such as brown noise have really subtle odd looping sounds and dialogue in the background. Changes on pause and play. Sounds like a clip of music? Really disruptive. Saw another similar complaint. Sorry for the low rating but woke me up in many occasions and is just plain creepy!
Maktheen - Lovely sounds
Such lovely And comforting sounds to help me have a power nap during the day and wipe out all the other noise around me. Zzzzzzzzz
harperon - Great app
Great for putting babies to sleep.
We recommend it to every first time mum.
Togle2 - Awesome
Awesome app, was recommended by audiologist to help with tinnitus, perfect for relaxing and listening to before sleeping. Many thanks
Spunky Mel - Rating app
Wow can’t believe that this app has been working for me.
Marinatedchicken5544 - good app, non evasive ads
been using this app for years, it’s awesome to just block noise out and/or to relax when i’m stressed. there are a few ads, but they’re not pop ups, just little side ones, and do not get in the way at all.
Ktwhoopi - Great little app!!
Rhirhi:) - 10/10
Excellent I love this app helps me sleep every night!!
Dottynette - White noise

sherlby - Amazing, life changing
I love this app so much and I hate sleep sounds but this has so many options it is so amazing. For those who are reading the reviews in the middle of the night like I was get the app, please.
Niqui78 - Love this app, but...
Definitely love this app. It actually helps to calm me as I suffer with anxiety. But please please please, can you make it so the sounds can play outside of the app? That would make it perfect
Caleighlynndavis - Works great
Use it every night.
bruh_soup - The best
I love it
gsgeigjejf - Love it!
I use this app every night for sleeping! My fav is the running water, and it’s very calming!
qwrgbdkejf - Laggy but good
Every time I exit the app or go into another app the noise cuts out and it is very annoying because it hurts my ears
Darrylmeister - Sleep and More!
I’ve been using a custom mix of waves, white noise and wind for a couple years now and I quite enjoy it as does the wife. On the road and visiting family. The slow, variable fade out of sound and fade up of wake alarm is very nice compared to an abrupt start of alarm or music other ways.
Also, I use the campfire sound effect anytime we don’t use real wood in the fireplace and only put a firelog in. The addition of the sound effect is a really nice touch to setting the mood.
Helps me sleep but not always - Helps me sleep but not always
Helps me sleep but not always
Shellio18 - One thing
Can you please add a wolf howling?
Nik thangs - Ads
Take of ads plz
helfbdoGfmclgbsu - Be careful
I have used this app & it is great for sleeping but I woke up in the middle of the night & my phone was burning hot that it actually burned my hand when I picked it up. Leaving this app running will cause the temperature on your phone to go up & it’s very dangerous
utctycjyckytcyotd - Love it!
Perfect! (At least for me). I love the timer feature and how instead of shutting off it slowly quieta and stops so you're not disturbed, and I love how there's a variety of sounds so you can find the one perfect for you, the one I like most is "airplane travel". My mother likes the brown noise. I had to have a loud fan in my room to get a good sleep before, then I found this and it worked perfectly for me! It's also useful that it keeps playing if you turn your device off but also had a screensaver option aka the sleep clock. Five stars! Also, people have been saying it needs focus, on my phone I have it running in the background right now as I'm writing this! I have no problems or complaints at the time!
DelNaskrent - Best sleep ever!
I was having a terrible time with insomnia and now I use this every night. I am sleeping so much better!
normal giy - It does what I need it to do
It helps me block out noise when I study and it soothes me while I sleep!
Danf20 - Waterfall
It’s not very realistic I go to a waterfall where I pick up some freight that’s a small one that sounds a lot more realistic in Springfield Ohio this sounds more like white noise machine
fhesh - So easy to sleep
It helps me and my sister a lot at night
BLACKLIVESMATTER!098 - AMAZING!
I love this app so much it helps me sleep ty!
Joguani - Amazing
Been using this for years just amazing
Djdjffjfjfjdjdjdjdjdjjcj - 🔥
I really like this app but it takes up a LOT of storage but it’s worth it
AppForTheRich - Very useful app
I really enjoy this app and I use it every night. It has a good amount of sounds to choose from, the only sounds I wish they had are Beach with seagulls and Lakeside with birds.
I would definately recommend you try it, it's free and it has helped me stay asleep and fall asleep.
Tamarissa - Almost perfect...
I use this app more to block out the noise of the middle of the night coyote howl and the early morning kids screaming on the pathway system outside my house than I do to fall asleep. It works great for that. I love being to make custom noises that really cover that racket. I just wish it had a Siri shortcut; I’m usually tucked all comfy into bed before I realize I forgot to start the app. It would be nice not to have to get out and go over to the phone and get it all started and then crawl back into bed. So much easier to just tell Siri to do it at that point...
Deepster2020 - Sound stops when you leave the app!
I used to love this app on my old iPhone, but it does not work on my new iPhone (XR). As soon as the the phone goes to sleep mode the sound stops, so you can’t leave it playing all night.
Please fix this.
I Bleed Whiskey - Best app ever
For all the people who can’t sleep including my self, for what ever reason it may be it does not matter. This app helps me so much that it is unexplainable. The fact that it really does something for a lot of people and is free and without in app purchases not only makes it the best sleep help app but the best app there is on any mobile device. Thank you again
BELLAA BEL@ - The best
Honestly it’s just the best it always helps me sleep and it’s mainly the only thing I sleep too!! There’s so many options that you choose from :) overall amazing recommend for people who can’t sleep without certain sounds.
FuzzyMH - Zzz...
Thanks to this app, I’m able to sleep peacefully without disturbances.
(I once accidentally left Bluetooth on and it connected to a speaker in the basement, which surprised me quite a bit!)
barbyzhere - Travelling
This app helps me sleep when I’m away and in a strange bed.
Hooni pop - White noise awesome
I love white noise
It helps me go to bed
Nikkifig9 - Great app
Easy to use ... lots of great sounds ... this app is perfect for my needs. No more sound machines ... just this and a Bluetooth speaker and I’m set! Thank you!
AnandaG123 - Been using for years!
I got this for my baby five years ago. I put it on for myself on nights I can’t sleep. Amazing and reliable and oh so soothing!
kitty kat 💗 - 😴
It’s amazing to fall asleep to! 😴
bird joy 7 - FANTASTIC
Everything is free with a lot of sounds and a lot of features!
the supa cat fan - 😀😀
Awesome app I really like it no flaws it’s perfect and someone who has insomnia this is the perfect recommend to anyone who wants a good night
redhead862 - This app is amazing
I totally recommend this app it helps me fall asleep and when I am stressed it helps me relax, I think it is amazing in every way and there are so many options of sounds my personal favourite is running shower or extreme rain! Go get this app now!!
Chandra1978 - Was great. Now it’s buggy.
Used to work like a charm. Now sounds change and wake me up, or it won’t turn on, stay on... it’s buggy.
jhtyui - AMAZING
This app works without wifi,it’s free and there is a variety of different options for different moods you may be in.Highly recommend!!!!!!
🐱🍪Cookie Cat!🍪🐱 - I have a recommended sound for sleep!
I sleep every night with white noise, and the specific sound I play is heavy rain pouring. Total sleep helper and stress reliever.
hkjfhgfjfghsdj - ⭐️✨Great App✨⭐️
This app helps my little brother get to sleep and you can even make some of your own! How good is that?
V I X 6 - Thankful
Thanks to this wonderful app I finally am able to fall asleep to one of the many calming sounds!! I highly recommend this for people with a sleep disorder.!!!!
edyndevlin - This app does it all
I love this app. It does everything I want and additionally covers all the features I had no idea I wanted but now love and use daily. It’s super well designed and well thought out.
Squirlybyrd - Take me to the beach
This app has helped me get to sleep for several years. I only use the beach waves or the crashing waves. They “drown out” the traffic noise or household noises outside my bedroom. The sounds also put me at a peaceful beach instead of nasty places that my mind sometimes wants me to go, allowing me to quickly fall asleep.
207560 - Awesome
This is a awesome app both my wife and I use to sleep at night. Using for at least three years.
Live beside a busy road and it drowns out the traffic noise.
We sleep very well because of it.
Chantal de Blainville - Relaxant!
Une application parfaite pour trouver le sommeil ou simplement relaxer au coeur de la journée. Merci à ceux qui y contribuent.
marniewyn - Excellent App.
The best App I have on my phone. Use the brown noise to sleep at night. Very soothing.
1992brettM - Very professional
This app has helped me tremendously with sleep! Making my very own sounds especially helps because certain sounds like a shower or a tv helps me sleep a lot. I simply recorded these and slept wonderfully! This app has so many professional features and is extremely easy to use. I highly recommend this app if you have sleep problems like me.
slp894 - I love it for my baby
I love to take it with us so she can sleep.
Emme1010 - The best nap app ever
There’s a selection of sounds and you can put an alarm on it so you always wake up on time.
mc_royal - Great travel app
I travel a lot and this app helps me sleep anywhere I go.
Jefferey76 - Best Background Noise App
Awesome app, highly recommend.
Joan Laundy - White Noise saved my sleep
I am a VERY light sleeper. I use an eye mask, earplugs and my white noise app. I like the brown noise and crank it up. It works
