Travel App of the Week: White Noise

White NoiseHaving trouble sleeping while you travel? I recently met a frequent traveler that swears by an app called White Noise (which costs $1.99). It’s supposedly recommended by Dr. Oz as a miracle for better sleep. According to the site, 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. White Noise generates sounds over a wide range of frequencies, masking those noise interruptions so you can not only fall asleep, but stay asleep.

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 ringing of the ears

White Noise’s sound catalog includes: Air Conditioner, Airplane Travel, Amazon Jungle, Beach Waves Crashing, Blowing Wind, Blue Noise, Boat Swaying in Water, Brown Noise, Camp Fire, Cars Driving, Cat Purring, Chimes Chiming, City Streets, Clothes Dryer, Crickets Chirping, Crowded Room, Dish Washer, Extreme Rain Pouring, Frogs at Night, Grandfather Clock, Hair Dryer Blowing, Heartbeat, Heavy Rain Pouring, Light Rain with Birds, Ocean Waves Crashing, Oscillating Fan, Pink Noise, Rain on Car Roof, Rain Storm, Running Shower, Running Water, Stream Water Flowing, Thunder Storm, Tibetan Singing Bowl, Train Ride, Vacuum Cleaner, Violet Noise, Water Dripping, Water Sprinkler and White Noise.

And the app features:

  • 40+ perfectly looped sounds with additional free sounds from the White Noise Market at http://whitenoisemarket.com/
  • Background audio support so you can use other apps while listening
  • Create new soundscapes by mixing multiple noises together like a DJ with support for adjusting volume, balance, and pitch of each individual sound in the mix
