White Noise Lite is a free app that allows the user to cycle through 40 sounds, or mix multiple sounds together to help them to get a good night’s rest. It has ads at the bottom of the phone screen, but it provides the option to upgrade to a full version for a dollar to remove them. The app also has an alarm function.
The app is easy to download and use. The user can simply flip through all of the different noises by swiping their thumb on the screen like one would the camera roll on their iPhone. Options of sounds include thunderstorm, blowing wind, ocean waves crashing, campfire, and rain on a car roof, among several others. The app offers relaxing white noise sounds that can replace the use of a white noise machine, blocking out outside sounds and providing relaxation for the user in order to promote better sleep.
The app has the option of a full-screen digital clock with multiple colors and brightness controls as well as five slowly fading alarms and a timer system. The user can save sounds to a “favorites” category for quick access. The app offers the ability to AirPlay sounds to Bluetooth devices.
The Lite version only offers the user some of the available sounds. There are advertisements at the bottom of each page. Although the sounds are relaxing and realistic-sounding, we could tell during our testing that they were on a loop–a problem that rarely occurs with an actual sound machine.
