Sleep Sounds by Sleep Pillow

Description

This is an app with many calming and relaxing sounds to help the user to fall asleep and stay asleep. Very few sounds and features are available on the free version, and the user needs to upgrade to the premium version in order to access the majority of the sounds and features.

 

Overview

This is really only an app that provides sleep sounds; however, there are nature images available to look at while you listen. If you upgrade to premium, you can choose from a variety of sounds; for example, you can choose from many different kinds of water sounds. It also contains animal sounds such as whale noises. You can also combine sounds. For example, you can use the raindrop sound along with the sound of a crackling fire and add in the sound of the wind. This app has a timer feature, allowing you to determine when it will shut off. The design is very user friendly and easy to figure out. 

 

Pros

You don’t hear the looping sound like you do on some apps. This one sounds like a constant stream of sound. The timer feature lets you set a time to shut off, thus saving on your phone battery.

 

Cons

If you don’t upgrade to the premium version, you get ads throughout the sounds.
