Recommended by Dr. Oz as a miracle for better sleep! Find out why the world is sleeping better with White Noise. 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.

  • Perfect

    by Texacats

    Was at a quilting retreat sleeping in the room with three other women one of which began to snore early in the morning. I went to the bathroom took an extra half a sleeping pill and downloaded this app! Ahhhh a prefect rest of the night's sleep for all followed.

  • Helps me sleep!!!

    by Dave McD

    I root for all if the guys associated with TMOS and this app works like a charm when there isn't a box fan around.

  • Great App!

    by Kpossible73

    The only improvement I'd suggest is adding more noises. I use this app all the time when I travel. Really like it!!!

  • Wow

    by sociology

    Seriously, wow. This is fantastic! I fall asleep to a mix of the crackling fire, a heavy rainstorm, and ocean waves every night. So many customization features and mixes plus the ability to create timers make this the app to have for sleep sounds!

  • Mommy, daddy and baby approved

    by Tinkertool56

    I cannot tell you how this application has helped our sleepless! Sometimes after taking care of the baby, in the middle of the night 3 to 4 times a night, it was difficult to go back to sleep by yourself. A friend turned me onto this and now every night I need to listen to it! Whether it be thunder and rain, or dreaming of the beach waves, sounds of the ocean, waterfalls, or just plain white noise, I'm always able to go back to sleep and baby sleeps so much easier with it as well! Has also been helpful during our thunderstorms that he's not frightened bc he listens to thunder all night! Thank you for this app! My sanity thanks you!!!

  • Peaceful

    by Cecily Stevens

    We've been using this app for almost a week and I have yet to hit a snag. It erases the noise from the streets of Brooklyn and has lead to deeper nights rest for both of us.

  • Good app, good sounds, good features.

    The array of noise types is good, as are the environment type ones. Sleep timers and all that other good stuff too.

  • White noise

    by Ande511

    Five stars.

  • Love this app!

    by Bwh1248

    I've been using this app for quite a while and it just keeps getting better! It both puts me to sleep at night and wakes me up in the morning!

  • Great App!

    by Brad Degnan

    ToMo has done it again. Highly recommended.

  • Immensely helpful when studying or doing work in non-ideal/noisy places

    by jon3312

    Sickest app for when you need to drown out any annoying talking/noise in the background when your complete school work or study.. I never could study while listening to music like some people, but sometimes having repetitive peaceful/tranquil sounds playing to suppress noise is surprisingly helpful. Oh and you can mix the sounds while playing music (while controlling each source's volume) which is crazy

  • Worth it.

    by HohmanProvement

    Very useful on road trips.

  • Awesome!

    by Mike 7132

    I love it! I use it every night.

  • Top 5

    by AlliBoston

    One of my top 5 favorite apps!

  • Perfect sounds

    by Amelreader

    Always find the sound or tone of sound needed. Who knew I would need a different tone at different times?

  • Great, but please add 1 more thing

    by ColtsGlock

    Best app for sleeping. Please add a feature that allows you to start the sound at a certain time.

  • Fantastic app with many uses!

    by arcurlyq

    I got this app awhile ago and have been using it for a variety of purposes ever since. I first used it to help me block out noise on airplanes and then to sleep in hotels. I've used it at work and now am using it to help soothe my baby to sleep. Fantastic all-purpose white noise app.

  • (Sleep & Meditation) GREAT app!!!

    by G1bbs

    I use this for sleep, meditation, and sometimes for background noise while at work. It has a large catalogue of quality sounds and a growing crowd-sourced catalogue as well. These are recorded and looped noises, not computer generated. The loops are smooth and unnoticeable. I use 'airplane', 'box fan', 'coffee house', and 'grey noise' a lot. You can also mix multiple sounds together to create your own soundscapes and can control pitch, speed, volume ect. Very versatile. I also just discovered an add on that allows you to record and loop your own sounds. More Tibetan bowl sounds please...!

  • Great App!

    by TonyPlat

    Quickly relaxes you.

  • Gute ap dawg

    by Tigerboy27

    I aint even got sleepp problems but dis is a goot clock n alarm n wyte noys is gud 4 slepe

  • Best breakers sounds

    by Reid17

    Best breakers sound I've found...besides the Pacific Ocean.

  • Great app- love all the types of "white" noise

    by Hagsyb

    Great app- lots of choices! I particularly like the brown noise- it's much less harsh than some other white noises I've heard. My bf, who can't even sleep with fan noise, can sleep with this one- making us both happy

  • Love this app!

    by Deedee-rn

    I work nights and usually have so much trouble staying asleep during the day, but using the "Camp Fire" sounds the past few days has been awesome and I'm staying asleep until the alarm and waking rested! Just wish you could set a different volume on the alarm. I'd like to try several of the other sounds but I'd have to set the volume lower on a few which would make the alarm too low and I'm scared I'd sleep right through it.

  • Death to awkward sleep silence!!

    by Aj Golden

    I use this app religiously. Some people pray before bed-- I turn on this app and call it a draw. It's amazingly reliable and the sound choices are excellent. The mixes are very useful also.

  • Too relaxed to write any more

    by Thadonius

    Good night! This app has been a lifesaver for almost 4 years.

  • Best app ever!!

    by babytigger88

    Works wonders. Helps me sleep good at night and also works on my kids. Id def recommend this to friends

  • Just What I Needed

    by Crystal614

    I am one of those that is up at every sound. I use to run a box fan on high to give me some peace. This is the first app I have tried & it is ex excellent!!!

  • Very functional yet fun

    by Vinyardigans

    My husband and I always used to pack a small fan whenever we travelled so we could sleep w/ hearing hall noises, cars, televisions from other rooms, etc. Now we have the noise on our phones and more space in the luggage. The app is easy to use and more sounds are added to the catalog almost weekly so I never get bored. I also like that I can't tell when the sound loops- I've stayed awake listening to that on other sound machines. This is just a steady, smooth sound. We've used it for over a year now and while I do plug the phone in if I'm going to be using the app overnight, so far we (and everyone else we show it to) love it! Thanks for a brilliant but simple idea!

  • Annoying "Rate Us" Pop-up

    by JStewartx

    It's compete garbage when I pay for an application that constantly annoys me to rate it with pop-ups that block functionality.

  • Love this app!

    by suzyhomemaker

    My bedroom window is close to a busy, noisy street. This app blocks out the noise and lets me get a good night's sleep. Great for travel, too!

  • Works great

    by Bloosman

    I sleep better now than ever. I wouldn't travel without this app. I love how you can mix the sounds. I fall asleep to crickets and campfire almost every night. I set the timer to play for 20 minutes, and I've never stayed awake long enough to hear it shut off!

  • Great sleep aide

    by Samim74

    This app is awesome. I fall asleep every night listening to the rain. It's great because wherever I go I can take this. I used to travel with a fan but now I only need this app. I even used it on a cruise ship.

  • Couldn't sleep without it!
