Recommended by Dr. Oz as a miracle for better sleep! Find out why the world is sleeping better with White Noise Lite for FREE. Features ambient sounds of the environment to help you relax during the day and sleep great at night.

Do you have trouble going to sleep? Are you traveling on a plane and need a quick power nap? Does your newborn baby wake up in the middle of the night? There are numerous benefits to using White Noise:

• Helps you sleep by blocking distractions
• Relaxes and reduces stress
• Pacifies fussy and crying babies
• Increases focus while enhancing privacy
• Soothes headaches and migraines
• Masks tinnitus (ringing of the ears)

Even when you’re asleep, your brain is constantly scanning and listening for sounds. If it’s too quiet, unwanted noises such as faucet drips or police sirens can interrupt your sleep. White Noise generates sounds over a wide range of frequencies, masking those noise interruptions, so you can not only fall asleep, but stay asleep.

  • Works perfectly for babies

    by Lmg5

    Has been a perfect app to have for my infant daughter. Way better than a white noise machine or sleep sheep.

  • Just what I needed

    by TNich357

    Good Stuff

  • Great for Tinnitus

    by PaintedCoyote

    I wish I could still play it while using other apps, though.

  • Great for studying

    by Markstp95

    Really helps to drown out other people talking in the library when I'm trying to concentrate.

  • Great app

    by Needs white noise

    Great app!!! Have a baby so this is perfect to drown out the tossing, turning and little noises babies make.

  • Love the fan

    by JesaLore

    The fan is the only one my husband and I can use. You can hear each sound repeat and quickly learn to hear the pattern, which tends to keep us awake. The fan also has this problem, but you expect a fan to repeat so it's not as noticeable. Functional clock is a nice add on.

  • One of the best apps

    by marko673

    I'm using it every night (airplane)

  • White noise

    by Maxwellwessendorf

    Absolutely amazing! Works great!

  • Use it away from home

    by Mossimo15

    I use this app every night I am away from home and don't have a fan to fall asleep to. Perfect

  • Toddlers and babies

    by Tcroft

    Puts the kids to sleep and keeps them asleep for 12 hours. Greatest App ever based on that alone!

  • Love this app on stressful nights!

    by funkydd

    I wake up at least once during the night and sometimes have a difficult time returning back to sleep because of to much on the brain. I turn on this app and within about a half an hour, I am asleep. The thing I love most about this app is being able to mix the sounds together.

  • Love it

    by KWH<3WBH

    Lots of features and a timer, plus easy to use. Just what I was looking for.

  • White Noise

    by YeahImIsh

    Great sleeping app! Relaxes and calms you when needed most

  • Great for sleep or to focus at work

    by MattBradley

    Big fan of "extreme rain pouring"

  • Addicted

    by Jeepaxle

    Can't sleep without white noise at home, now I can take it with me when I travel. The clock is very convenient as well

  • White noise lite

    by Pab213

    My son told me about this n I love the soothing sounds thank you it helps me fall asleep

  • Finally Sleeping all Night

    by Happysleeper14

    I hadn't slept a full night in months. This App has saved me. The crickets lull me to sleep and I feel like I'm camping. Love it!

  • Great App

    by Squabble Hockey

    Love this app. The noises are awesome, you can adjust the pitch and mix the sounds. Best app ever!

  • White noise

    by Jack3455

    Works great! Traveling in various countries, helps drown out the local noise and lets me sleep.

  • Love it

    by Jknicker

    It helps so much with my newborn! We sleep so much better.

  • Don't get for the fan.

    by I Balls

    I downloaded for the fan noise, it sounds like an air raid siren. Not very conductive to sleep, lol. The train is the only decent noise. The water ones make you have to pee, the clock ticking just reminds you that your awake...

  • Great

    by The Sibster

    Great app. Use it when I'm on the road. Get it now!

  • Can't sleep without it!

    by Ndd1990

    If I find I can't fall asleep, it usually because I've forgotten to turn on the crashing waves.

  • Works as expected

    by Dalmorag

    White noise is good. There are ads at the bottom, but who's looking? The clock feature is nice too... I've turned the sound off and set it to sleep mode in meetings that took place in rooms without clocks so that everyone can see what time it is.

  • Hypnotizing

    by Minerfanatic

    Love the rain sound. Perfect for studying.

  • Great for travel!

    by Tkdoll4442

    I am used to the sound of the fan in my room at night. If I travel this helps replace it.

  • An oasis of calm

    by TechMom27

    This app is a lifesaver! It helps me focus even in a noisy office.

  • Traveling Salesman's Best App

    by NatureNerd1974

    At home I love my noise maker but since I'm always in another town and another noisy hotel this app makes bringing my nose maker so much easier! No more 3 am giggles in the hall, slamming doors or nosey neighbors. I choose my favorite sounds, crank it up and sleep like a baby! I LOVE THIS APP!

  • LOVE

    by gaby_jonas

    Can't go to bed without it

  • Helping me sleep well

    by HanaSol

    No cure for tinnitus- but any comfort at night is great!! I downloaded and made a playlist of water sounds. It is soothing.

  • Love this, just wish you could use the phone while it ran

    by LolaBonny1

    Great app, love all the choices. Crickets is my favorite one. Only thing, I wish that you could run it in the background while other programs were running- then it would be perfect!

  • Love it.


    It helps me relax enough to go to sleep

  • Great app

    by Wirebender

    Very helpful for many environments. It would be great if it Continue to work when you opened other apps, Like all other audio apps.

  • Love this app

    by Hooti hoot!

    What a handy app! It's especially great when I'm out of town and don't have access to my sound machine at home! Shared it with my son and he loves it too!

  • A must have

    by mariakvh

    This has gotten me through what would have been many sleepless nights. I love it. Oh and it's great at work when I'm writing and need to drown out the conversations nearby.

  • Got me thru a deployment

    by Bindtorturekill

    Imagine yourself surrounded by 50 snoring, farting, talking in their sleep, up at all hours Soldiers. This app was what kept me sane and rested. The train ride works for every time.

  • Great app

    by Ga/Ky girl

    I've been using this app for several months at home and when I travel. I especially like the crickets. I think it's the most natural sound and it is great to sleep with.

  • Awesome

    by Davesgirllovespeace

    This app rocks

  • Great

    by Slinky 1060

    Love it. Use it all the time. I spend many nights in hotel rooms and this is the best way to drown out the inevitable rude/loud fellow patron.

  • Great app!

    by Lvoorhies

    I travel a lot and use this app in every hotel room so I don't hear hall or outside traffic. I've also used it when I babysit and want children to be able to sleep.

  • Sleeping Great

    by Someone old school

    My daughter has had a sound machine since day one. When we travel we use this app. Now I use it every night to drown out the noise of my early rising visitors. I'm sleeping great!

  • Drowns out the wife's snoring

    by Christdr

    Had to resort to using a fan every night. No problem, but then winter came. Even pointing the fan at the wall made it too cold. Downloaded this, perfect. Love the crickets and the rain. Looking forward to trying it when I travel. First night in a hotel is always the hardest. Bonus tip: if you have an alarm clock with Bluetooth, the sound is even better. When the weather warms up, I'll still be using this to get to sleep. The fan will be for cooling only.

  • Awesome app

    by spiderscott9

    Easy to use and works great on the airplane using headphones

  • Lifesaver

    by Jdex2

    Always use when I'm traveling. Helps me sleep no matter where I am.

  • Puts me right to sleep

    by anamenobodygot

    White noise app is great. I love the fact that you can use a timer so you won't drain your battery at night. The alarm in the morning is great because it's a gradual sound.

  • Just get it right now

    by Catwiddabat

    I usually just run a fan to satisfy my white noise needs for sleep. However, I have been caught sleeping in some strange places... and on those occasions, this app is like an invaluable side-arm that I always have on me. True, sound quality is not amazing, but who cares? As long as you can't hear the couple having sex in the other room.

  • Perfect

    by Driving4work

    Great app for white noise, alarm, and clock. I use all functions regularly. The alarm with music is perfect, and the ability to set it by time or a timer is nice.

  • Love it!

    by Mimi4116

    So happy with this newly found app, provides a good nights sleep and is totally relaxing. Best of all blocks out snoring!

  • Drowns out neighbors' sex

    by Gawdzillers

    I recently got a new space heater after my old one quit on me; unfortunately, the new one is silent. I woke up at 3 AM to the sound of my neighbors having very noisy sex. Congrats to them, but I've got stuff to do in the morning. Downloaded this app and used "Extreme Rain Pouring" to get back to sleep in peace.

  • Awesome

    by Totestagram

  • Great App

    by Bddutchg

    I can't imagine sleeping at a hotel without this app. I use the alarm as well, it has never failed me.

  • Great for short alpha state mini naps

    by Gen X professional

    Love this app. Use it every weekend to take quick naps without feeling groggy.

  • The Best

    by Dgiz6?

    Both my wife and I love this app to help us sleep while traveling away from our home. The best!

  • Perfect anytime!

    by Squishy_whale

    I L❤️VE this app. The multiple choices allow me to fall asleep to whatever I am vibing with - it is perfect for falling alseep early, going into a deep sleep, and even masking snorers!

  • White noise

    by Cannon 233

    Good app

  • Not helpful

    by Slbydt

    I had this app for less than a minute before I deleted it. The audio clips are on very short loops and do not flow smoothly so you can tell where the end meets the beginning, which is distracting. The audio quality is poor. The design of the app is not intuitive at all and looks awful, with eyesore images, which provides a negative experience while using the app, especially for a relaxation app. This app deserves an update; I actually remembered I had downloaded it quite a while ago and deleted it and it was never made better since then.

  • Great app for tinnitus

    by Troyhh

    I've got tinnitus in my right ear and the airplane mode is the best sound I've found for masking it so I can sleep.

  • Awesome

    by Brittadacacrow

    Awesome app! Wouldn't be able to sleep without it!

  • Good

    by Fyshtoys

    I have to hear the sound of a fan otherwise, I am up all night and when I'm not at home this Lulls me right to sleep.

  • The good ZZZZZZZs

    by GIGO-40

    Fall asleep fast. Fall asleep soundly.

  • Fantastic tone adjustment feature!!

    by Qu2Samantha

    Absolutely love this app!

  • Fantastic

    by Danno's Nano

    Discovered this app while trying to fall asleep in the hospital. Was perfect, slept til morning.

  • Perfect!

    by The Crackerz

    Insomniac no more. Enough said.

  • Perfect

    by Pappy1"0038

    This is the best one out there!!!

  • Nice

    by 2.tayn

    I'm thankful for this ap. Not every sleep machine or ap has options that are actually peaceful enough for me to sleep to. I can't fall asleep to ones where you can hear the loop (where sound starts playing over again). This ap has nice options. Thank you!

  • Love it!!

    by MommytoE

    I have a hard time falling asleep but this app always does the job, I sleep to the storm and rain sounds!!

  • Awesome App

    by Marisakatherine

    Love this app! :)

  • Great App

    by imnuevo

    Great functionality and simple interface.

  • Wonderful!

    by Levi770421

    I've used this to drown out the TV in the next room, help grand babies get to sleep. It's great. My 2 fav sounds are the steady rain & the grandfather clock. I use this on an iPhone 4.

  • Best white noise app I have found

    by llerrumd

    I use this whenever I travel. Being able to mix sounds is fantastic.

  • Best white noise app

    by gpwood

    Thunder storm always slows down my thoughts and gets me to sleep in no time, oh and did I mention I'm an insomniac? Love this app.

  • Best for trips

    by Craigbro

    I don't leave home without it!! Makes hotels much easier to sleep in. Thanks for having such a great app for travelers

  • Awesome no more.

    by Crisscrossk

    The app crashed twice in three minutes.

  • Awesome app

    by SweetLou89

    Love it!! Rain on a tent canvas is the best!

  • Sleeping the night away

    by Julzbrok

    This app has helped my husband and I sleep much better thru the night. Our son is one and we can hear every cough and turn he makes on the monitor and this app helps just right where it tunes it out- but the volume levels let us still hear him cry. It's a great tool to travel with too! Enjoy!

  • Great app

    by Shostakovich33

    Helps me fall and stay asleep.

    I've used 3 different ones and this app had the most realistic sounding features. My favorite is the airplane. Helps me fall right to sleep.

  • Great app!

    by Contestgrl

    It's my "go to" app for sleeping. It's very relaxing, and I love the clock and the ability to change the color without stopping my white noise.
