Overall Comment

Great app for everyone! I have used it for relaxation, and I have recommended it to patients for stress management as well. It is great for babies as well as well which is always a plus! One of the downsides is that the app turns off if you go into another app, but this is not an issue if you use it at night.

Pros

You can mix and match the sounds Can set a timer to turn it off

Cons

Cant go into another app or it will turn off
