Love this app!

Simple yet thoughtful design. App has been super useful to play white noise (for a newborn hoon through the usual growth spurts)

Great; no subscription!

This app delivers! It does exactly as advertised and the different sounds are good.

You can set a timer for 23hours 59minutes if you need that long. We use a 12hour timer.

No subscription!!!
In a world of increasing monthly subscriptions this is a real find. THANK YOU to the developers for

Needs more sounds

I like this app, it’s a great app and I just love the design, but it definite needs more sounds like rain tubes, (those tubes
full of beans that you turn upside down to make a noise), and I have recently had a problem where sound shuts of after about one
or two minutes occasionally

Love this app!

This is the perfect app to study to! I do hope you add more sounds soon! Like “library sounds” “classroom ambiance”

Best Modern Sleep Noise app!

I used to be satisfied with a sleep sound app that just made some white noise to give me a blank canvas for sleep. That was the
olden days of iPhones, a simpler and more innocent time.

I’ve used a different sleep sound app happily for many years. It’s been collecting strikes as iOS moved forward an

If you have trouble sleeping for whatever reason, you need to get this app. For me it has been a life changer. There are very
very few apps I can say that about.

I suffer from sever chronic pain and my ability to sleep is completely compromised by the pain. I always have some type of music

Best noise app I’ve ever tried!!!

I have previously tried many noise apps before dark noise and all of them where simply dreadful. But this app is well made and
simple. Plus the developer clearly listens to a lot of the same podcasts I do haha

This app desperately needs Binaural sounds please add it makes so much sense to add them to this app

The sound never changes on Binaural Beats so that makes it easy to loop and they can be very short file won’t take up much space
on our devices

But please no popping sounds on loops it’s extremel

Well designed

I have been using this app for hours every day, mostly because it has Shortcuts functionality. That feature alone makes it more
useful than other noise apps. The drawback for me is the sound library. As a person with tinnitus, some days I need different
blends of sounds, and rain is best for this, b

Dark noise is the only noise

I have eight words for you all...

Coffee shop. Thunderstorm. Heavy rain. Cat purring. Fireplace.

^ Those make the best custom noise mix of all time. Dark Noise is the only app that can give me this.

Pretty Much Everything

All the sounds you want and More!!! My wife and I used Apple Music until I found this App, but the tracks always fade out. With
this, there is no gap between your white noise, just ONE LOOP! Couldn't have asked for a better app.

New update removes sound mixes

Warning! The newest update removes all sound mixes. I no longer have my sound mixes, they’re all gone. I was wondering what was
missing from the app and then I realized. Beware of this update!

'Beautiful design but disappointing sound'

impressive (5 stars). However, the quality of the majority of sounds is frankly just average, which is disappointing, considering

the same time. \n\nOverall this app is qu

subtle little animations. It just shows the dev

Cant hear mixes while making them

This app is beautiful and the sounds are great and well organized but why cant I hear the sounds which I may want to add to the
mix I’m making while making the mix.

This is pretty much the only thing that really bothers me about the app. It’s like half its functionality is seriously flawed.

Nice little app, wish I could mix sounds together

It’s be nice to be able to mix multiple sounds together in the app. I’d love to be able to play rain and city sounds at the
same time for example. It’s a nice app, but that feature will push to five stars for me
