thundergod: Insomnia Relief
Description
Audio quality. That is what separates thundergod from all the others. While many have tried to imitate our work, none have achieved the sonic supremacy of the Naturespace thunderstorm series thundergod. The experience under headphones is unmatched. Our unique 3D recording techniques not only recreate the sound of real storms, but also the detailed spatial characteristics of their unique environments. Follow the trajectories of hundreds of individual rumbles and strikes above you. Feel the rain on the leaves and in the water as wind pushes through the trees. Get lost aboard a giant wooden vessel as she navigates the squall. thundergod faithfully recreates the variety of storms that have been witnessed through all of history, striking fear and awe into the heart of mankind across the ages. Completely remastered, these storms are now much longer and stronger and are accompanied by a beautiful new UI with synchronized, full screen lightning flashes. thundergod puts the combined power of 6 years of storm recordings in your pocket. Unlike music, which can be distracting, listening to our storms while working or relaxing gives your mind the space to think and focus by immersing you into amazingly real 3D spaces with intricate and detailed storms that are so long that they never feel repetitive. Six storms are ordered by degree of intensity: the combative and aggressive Thor, the all-night rumbler Odin, the adventurous and fascinating journey of Aegir, and the magical and mystical forest of Loki, as well as two rain-only tracks that are perfect for a sleeping ambience. thundergod contains an album's worth of audio, but it actually feels much longer due to the seamless and infinite looping that Naturespace is known for. Providing both entertainment and function, thundergod is the Swiss army knife of thunderstorm apps. It's the one app you will keep coming back to because, in the end, it's all about the audio quality.
LOVE!!

Have used this app for years whenever we travel—marvelous ‘white noise’ that sounds fantastic & soothing!!
Encouragement to the Creators
by Savvy Living on 2019/07/10 05:37
Bought this nearly ten years ago. Since then, I’ve surely used this more times than not—and really think about that. I’m leaving this review in hopes the creators see it and are encouraged to continue updating and improving the app. I’m a little worried it’s quickly becoming “dead” so I can only hope by some miracle that is not the case. I saw via the version history there was an update for iPhone X, which is a decent sign I suppose, but even still... There has yet to be another storm addition or UI change or even design change. Things like this make me disheartened, especially considering the time I’ve had the app. If you have good or even decent speakers, the sounds are brilliant. Stellar work. Please don’t let this fade into junk.
An absolute fav, worth every penny
by ODDIV on 2019/03/05 23:08
This is a fantastic app. The sounds are perfect, close your eyes and you are immersed in the moment completely. This is worth every penny.
Perfect!
by carleyannk on 2018/12/25 06:32
This app is the app I would happily spend money on (and quite clearly did). The sound effects are ultimately, incredibly realistic and crisp. There is no obvious loop cycle as everything within each track flows wickedly smooth. Very pleased!!
RAIN......RAIN...................SOFT THUNDER ??
by MOOREZY on 2018/12/23 00:16
I wish you had “soft thunder” to go with the rain.....other wise I love ❤️ THUNDERGOD........ I’ve had it for year’s. Any update’s coming......??????? You know......some really different stuff ( you know.....use your imagination,sort of kick it up a notch somewhat........? DAVE MOORE.
I don’t know how I would live without it.
by lindyreed on 2018/10/18 00:16
This app is my refuge...my escape...my life saver! 😁👍 It puts me to sleep every night, and saves my sanity when I’m tired of the harsh noises of everyday life. Thank you for all the peace you’ve given me! 😃❤️ #nojoke
Great app
by Juand1982 on 2018/10/14 03:43
I use it every night to go to sleep. Definitely worth the $10.
Excellent
by Nancy Gayle's iPhone on 2018/10/10 10:04
All are great quality – my favorite is eternal reign!
Great for sleep

Only one storm missing
by Scottygrrl32 on 2018/06/10 15:05
These are the best quality storms you can buy, no awkward "jumps" at the loop point....in fact, you may not be able to actually FIND the loop point! However, for sheer grandness, I think they are missing Piasa the thunderbird of the Mississippi River (as seen on the cliffs near Alton, Illinois.) The booming reverberations of thunder bouncing off the limestone cliffs there are the sound of the Piasa (Pie-uh-Saw) bird's wings.
Love this app
by pebz13 on 2017/03/12 19:54
Great app. Surreal! Loved it so much bought the other app also.
I use this app more than any other.
by Civilian on 2016/11/24 03:36
Take it all together since 2007, this app has been my most used app. It has soothed me and my family to sleep so many times that I could not even possibly estimate. This app is very dear to me.
Amazing App.
by Jeanzog on 2016/04/26 05:22
This app is magical. I rarely purchase apps but this was an exception I'm glad I made. The sound is amazing! This app creates an experience by combining light effects and a truly holographic sound that is beyond any other nature sound simulators I've experienced over the years.
Love it - use it every night - zzzzzzzz
by CPSSNY on 2016/03/02 11:05
Best one of these apps that I have tried and have tried quite a few
Worth Every Penny
by £¥£¥£¥£¥ on 2016/02/22 10:58
If you like the sound of real thunder then this is THE app for you. It is pricey but worth it.
Please Fix !!
by Hog49 on 2016/01/02 08:08
Love your apps, but this opens to a black screen. I'm on iOS 8. Please fix it soon.
Not working
by Longtime big fan on 2015/12/27 02:05
V2.12 not working in iOS 9. Opens to a black screen and never starts.
Best out there!
by LembasBread on 2015/10/27 14:33
I was hesitant to purchase this app because of the price and for months tried a variety of free or cheaper versions that left me dissatisfied. I can honestly say that after purchasing this app, I have no regrets! It was worth every penny. The sounds are as three dimensional as advertised. The thunder is not confined to "claps" but varied with rolling as well. The rain is also high quality. So glad to have this app
WOW!!!
by Beach Magic on 2015/08/16 22:59
Favorite app ever!!!
Realistic Storm Sounds
by ChicagoReviewer1 on 2015/08/06 18:03
This app is so realistic that when an actual storm hit, I checked my phone because I thought the app was running. It's far superior to other apps in that regard. I wish there were options to edit levels of thunder/rain within each track, but it's still very good. The timer function is perfect for sleeping. I highly recommend Thundergod app.
Awesome
by Billbo74 on 2015/07/15 22:49
A+!!!! The depth with a good sound system is AMAZING... My Bose system really picks everything up... I mean everything. My life is music and this sounds AMAZING!!!
Fantastic
by Mika4658 on 2015/06/07 17:45
The best app ever!!!!! Helps me fall asleep every night. The realism is incredible.
Fantastic
by Novel-reader on 2015/06/07 01:48
This is the highest quality audio I've ever heard. Unmatched by any other sound app. It's 3D sound!
Money well spent
by best app fo sho on 2014/10/27 02:42
This app never fails to help me sleep. Well worth every penny. If you're on the fence about spending the money, do it. This company makes quality products and does immersive & realistic really well.
End of sleep timer issue
by Mandy37916 on 2014/05/20 12:12
This used to be an awesome Ap to fall asleep to! But now after your sleep timer runs out it plays this obnoxious "theme" music that wakes me up every time! Completely kills the effect of falling to sleep by this ap because you know this weird theme music is coming and will scare the crap out of you and ruin what sleep you were having. Fix this problem please! We don't need that at the end of our timer!
Not worth the $$$$
by MissyBWilliams on 2013/08/15 04:19
So disappointed that I cannot run this in the background. Great sound but expected way more for the price!!!
I downgraded my review
by verafide on 2012/10/08 06:21
This is an awesome app at heart, but no updates since 2010 and your still charging $10 bucks?! Come on! At least make this have the ability to run in the background! Hope this gets your attention.
Great Sounding BUT...
by Maji313 on 2012/07/22 04:12
Doesn't support multitasking. I usually like reading a book to atmospheric sounds but as soon as you come out this app, the thunder stops.
Great quality... absolutely NO updates!
by Kazonomics on 2012/07/03 08:07
$10 bucks is upper echelon in the app store as far as price goes. Quality is great, now throw us a bone and update please. Had this over a year and no additional support at all on this. Please allow to run in the background as well.
I want to give it 5 stars...
by LaFlaRedhead on 2012/01/28 23:50
But this app does not support multitasking like their Naturespace App supports. Other than this minor issue, I am in serious like with 3d, holographic sound imagery.
It's ok!
by Fototico on 2011/12/02 16:51
This is a pretty good app, with pretty good audio quality. There are others just as good or better though. What some of the other apps have that this one lacks is more tracks and they can run in the background. For me the inability to multitask while using it makes it useless most of the time. But that is just because I often use more than one app at a time. For example, a guided meditation app and one (like this one) for ambient background sound at the same time.
Incredible!
by dmollison on 2011/10/18 13:27
These are the most incredible thunderstorm recordings I've ever heard. Nothing compares. What's even more incredible is that I listen to these on my stock iPhone earbuds. I can't wait to see what it sounds like with some real headphones! To all those commenting that Thundergod doesn't have multitasking support: I e-mailed Naturespace about this, and they told me that you can download their Naturespace app, and if you've already purchased Thundergod you can unlock the same thunder tracks in the Naturespace app for free. Just go to the thunder section in Naturespace: the tracks from Thundergod should say "unlocked" next to them. And then you can enjoy the thunder tracks while multitasking!
I like it but...
by ATTENTION!! on 2011/10/08 15:15
It is NOT worth the $$
For those wanting updates
by jasmerrill on 2011/10/05 08:35
These sounds are amazing. It quickly became one of my favorite apps. I too was waiting for updates that brought multitasking, retina support, etc., but found out today how to get them. Naturespace has another app called Naturespace that has received all these updates. The app is free and then comes with a few sample sounds. Other sounds can be purchased within the app, including all the sounds found in Thundergod. And, if you have Thundergod installed on your device, the Naturespace app lets you download these sounds for free. So the end result is all the same sounds (plus some) in an updated app. Hopefully this will help some of those waiting eagerly for these updates.
Updates overdue
by Downerczx on 2011/09/24 08:24
No updates or multitasking minimize the usefulness of this app.
Background
by jdawg21 on 2011/09/06 05:14
Please make it so that it can be played in the background
needs to support mutitasking
by jsrtm_1 on 2011/08/28 09:22
For ten bucks it should have mutitasking. The other Naturespace app has mutitalksing so I know it can be done but they choose not have it for this app.
Updates?
by CSUdvm on 2011/08/17 16:16
Way too expensive for 5 tracks and no updates-EVER. Description suggested many more storms than what is actually included on this app
Loving it
by mrpelon on 2011/07/27 08:43
Please update had for over 2 years...needs more myth god themes....update please
Listen to it every night!!!
by NazerNae on 2011/06/05 06:13
I was nervous about the price but it's well worth it!! I've had the app for at least a year and almost always go to sleep with it on. The quality is superb and the choices very realistic. I have even used it on occasion, in hotels, to drown out noisy neighbors or snoring. :)
Best 10 bucks I ever spent
by aneal138 on 2011/05/29 04:25
it may be a little pricier than other apps, and I actually misread the price thinking it was 99 cents. I cussed a little under my breath when I realized I had just paid 10 dollars for one app. but after I starting using it, I realized how much I love it! I LOVE thunderstorms, this plays 5 different kinds: loud thunder wind and rain, lighter thunder with heavy rain, rainstorm at sea, rainstorm in the forest, and just steady rainfall. I love the first one called "Thor" because I'm a storm lover, but I switch between the others based on my mood. it's extremely realistic and has a long track time because I rarely hear anything that sounds the same. and it always starts at a different place if that makes sense, just adding to how realistic it is. hands down the best way to listen to an artificial thunderstorm. I don't my phone on my ihome just about every night, and cuddle and close my eyes and I'm just astounded. if you love going to sleep to thunderstorms, you will want to have this app. you won't be sorry.
Needs multi-tasking
by Hunterzyph on 2011/03/23 00:57
Handicapped otherwise
Great app but out of date
by Jaek11 on 2011/02/28 15:25
I love this app and will add stars as soon as retina and multi-tasking support are added. We really need to be able to let the wonderful storms thunder in the background while running, say, a nightstand app. & the imagery is provocative but needs to take advantage of the new retina display. The sooner these happen the sooner I will consider further expansion of my Thundergod library, come on guys!! :). Great job so far!
Thunderous Applause!
by Big Voice on 2011/02/17 03:18
Thundergod is fantastic! Naturespace does an amazing job of placing you right at the center of the storms. You can hear the rain pouring down around you. The sound really is holographic! You may find yourself reaching out to catch a drop or two before you remember that its coming over the headphones. This thing is like the holodeck (Star Trek) for your mind. Thor is pretty much the Naturespace signature track and it provides a lot of bang for the buck. Huge explosions of thunder - the kind of storm you love to hear. Aegir is unquestionably my favorite. It puts you alone on the deck of a sailing ship right in the middle of a storm. If you can, put on some good headphones for this one and get totally blown away. (Hopefully not blown overboard.) My third favorite is Loki. This is very well done, with the sounds of thunder rolling over a swamp. It is kind of magical. Here is also a good tip. I just recently learned this one. When you buy Thundergod these tracks all become available to you in the full Naturespace app (just download from their store at no additional cost). It is a better deal than buying them separately. I just left a review for the Naturespace app - their other environments are great too. Enjoy!
Really Great!
by thepixelwrangler on 2011/02/03 18:45
Just bought this and though a bit pricey it delivers! Just as advertised. Naturespace never disappoints.
Worth the price
by d2h on 2011/02/01 02:04
Is it expensive? Yes. Is it worth helping me sleep (and relax)? Absolutely!
Excellent.
by Shondab on 2011/01/19 18:23
This app is packed with great storm sounds. You can also get them al la carte in the free Naturespace app. This was one of my first apps and I still use it every night. If you love storms, you need this app. It really puts your there.
What's wrong with ME?
by RipW on 2011/01/18 02:28
I'm at a loss understanding exactly what all the glowing praise is all about. I have a FREE thunderstorm app that runs circles around this. In fact, the splash screen is the most impressive feature about this app. Perhaps I'm just tone deaf or maybe I expected too much, but I wish I had saved my $10.00 for something else.
EXCELLENT SOUND
by flyte44 on 2011/01/02 01:21
I have MANY rain and thunder CDs and this company is by far the best. They just need to make more. (And personally, I like the wind rustling in the trees, and you can make more ZEN motivated tracks.) You will not regret the purchase if you are put off by the price. Don't be. You will sleep peacefully, and you will enjoy the holographic sound. I have everything NatureSpace does. The NatureSpace app, THUNDERGOD app, and all of their CDs. The holographic sound is just fantastic, especially with good earphones. I use in the ear canal headphones and would steer clear of ear buds. (Yuck.) This company does have to get their butts moving and MAKE MORE tracks! Only seven CDs? The best and most realistic sounding rain and thunder ever. No hiss. No high tremble which sounds like bacon frying, just great deep bass thunder, and perfect rain. NOW MAKE MORE!!
Unbelievable the most realistic sounds available
by nsl4 on 2010/12/28 16:53
This is one of the best apps I've purchase on my iPhone and I would highly recommend it to everyone. The quality of these recordings can't be matched by anything else I've found in the iTunes store. Some may say the tracks are expensive but honestly you get what you pay for. If you're happy with a short synthetic loop of wind or rain look for the many free apps in store - get Naturespace for the real thing you won't be disappointed. You'll use this app more than enough to justify the pricetag. The team are very quick an helpful dealing with questions and support. Go on treat yourself - you won't regret it.
Awesome, awesome, awesome...
by Jardon-21 on 2010/12/09 04:12
If I could say this more and not be repetitive and boring I would do it. This is by far my favourite ambience/nature-sound app in the entire app store. The quality of this product is just amazing. "Aegir" is my favourite to fall asleep or imagining beying on a journey in past times to some secret ancient mystery :-)
Just what I was looking for...
by Rerrlj on 2010/11/09 04:49
Get way to relax. I just set the sleep timer and I was a goner...
Can you put a price on quality?
by Sriker977 on 2010/10/18 05:23
I bought this App about a year ago and it is one of the most used Apps on my Touch. Although they probably are asking a little too much for it, it is by far the best sounding App I've purchased. I use my Sony MDR-XB300 stereo headphones and I'm blown away every time I listen. A great item for any storm or rain lover. 
REALLY, no multitasking?
by spartan5122 on 2010/10/13 06:13
Great sound app, but it's uses are dramatically curtailed because it STILL does not support multitasking. For as long as iOS 4.0 as been out, at this point, this lazy oversight is unacceptable and I would not purchase until multitasking is enabled (so you can use this app just like any other sound-based app: WHILE you do other things with your iPod/iPhone)
please show me the update
by John seset on 2010/10/06 13:14
it s great app !!! great sound its so amzing but naturespace is can multitasking but it s can t mul tasking i want and i need it plz show me update
Awesome but........
by mrbusters on 2010/09/20 01:02
I love sleeping to thunderstorms so I started searching for an app. After reading all of the reviews I decided to choose this one. I read the description and it said they recorded over 65 thunderstorms across the united states......really? Where are they? because on this app you only get 4. The quality of the sound is awesome,I just don't like deceving ads. The maker needs to let the buyer know exactly what they are getting.I thought I was going to get 65 different storms. But no......4 thunder storms and 2 rainfall. So for that....4 stars
high quality but needs an option to customize
by Jaceson on 2010/09/12 13:42
The sound quality is the best you will find for storms as far as realism is concerned. My only complaint is I wish there was an option to remove the wildlife sounds from the tracks, IE the frog sounds. The 1st couple times you hear them it's ok, however you'll soon realise everytime you hear them you become aware you are listening to a looping sound track thus killing the experince for me anyway. Still despite the slight annoyance I feel it's still worth the investment, but adding this option would make this a 5 star app and then some. It should be noted although there is little room for improvement, I have yet to see an update released. You would think for such a high priced app the dev would atleast add a few enhancements if not an extra track or two.
Great sound but too $$$
by Gordian Caesar on 2010/08/17 00:23
Sounds great but overpriced for what you get.
Happy in the Rainstorm
by newbeehoney on 2010/08/02 01:19
Before I bought this app, I was unsure about it. I knew I loved the free Naturespace app, and I do love thunderstorms, but still... Ten bucks? So I looked at the price, and then I looked at the ratings. Then I looked at the price. Then I looked at the ratings. Then I bought it. And then, after only one night of listening, I rated it five stars, just like everyone else. You do realize that an album on iTunes typically costs more than ten bucks right? Well, this has at least an albums worth of audio on it. And it has, BY FAR, the best sounding storms I have ever heard. I use it almost nightly, I've had it for months, and I have easily gotten my money's worth many times over. I hope this helps you with the ten dollar dilemma that faces you now. Just do it. I bet you end up rating it five stars too.
Great Sound Too Expensive!
by fundivegirl on 2010/08/01 21:57
Please make this app run in the background just like naturescape. Definitely the thunder sounds and surround sound available on this app are great. However, I rated it pretty low due to price and because there was just too little variety in the five sounds available. As the current app is with only five sound choices I would not have paid $4 but no more. There are two really good app's Naturescape for free by this same developer and White Noise $1.99 with really good thunder sounds that also have a lot of other great relaxing sounds available. Honestly, I listen to the others more than this expensive app because sometimes I just want a relaxing noise other than thunder and I do LOVE thunder. So, it's a great app just not worth $9.99 for the options. I LOVE the FREE Naturescape app even more. If it's not in your budget get the $1.99 White Noise app and you'll have 20 great sounds! And most importantly they will run in the background with the new 4 update unlike thundergod.
Realistic and 3D sound
by Eleora3 on 2010/07/26 20:40
Highly recommended.
Beautiful Storms
by tired of traveling on biz on 2010/07/15 21:53
I remember and miss the storms from my younger days living in Michigan. Sounds incredible from my iPhone with Sony headphones. So amazing and real. Well worth the price and I don't have to worry about being struck by a lightning bolt!
Excellent!
by dgdw on 2010/07/15 05:28
This app is excellent however .... Now that iOS 4 supports multitasking so should this. Otherwise well worth the cost!!

June 29 Upgrade fixed the crashing problem
by eev from maryland on 2010/07/05 18:46
All is well now and I love this app. The recent upgrade fixed the problem with the app crashing after a few seconds. Pricey app but the best out there of this kind.
Happy mistake
by DaddyYak on 2010/07/03 06:14
After taking an Ambien one night, I awoke the next morning to find that I had purchased a $10 that does nothing more than make thunderstorm sounds. Oops. But having now had the application for about a year, I can say unequivocally that this is an excellent purchase, and the money was well spent. Both its acoustic quality and variation in the sounds speak to the efforts that went into making this a top-notch program. It is tremendously effective at drowning out noise, and I often use it to fall asleep since I live in a place with a lot of traffic and barking dogs. A lot of dogs. The price seems a bit much, but I have no regrets from that night that I apparently don't remember.
Fixed and sounds Incredible!
by _Neocane on 2010/06/30 12:10
Now that this app has been updated to work with iOS4, it works beautifully! The sound is amazing, this app is worth the $10 without a doubt.
Update still does not work
by SailthenetDad on 2010/06/30 01:48
Come on guys, the update does keep playing now, but it will not run in the background like NatureSpace does. Let's get it right with a new update ASAP!!!
Wow!
by geckodie on 2010/06/30 00:57
Rockin thunder goodness. No more waiting for the storms that always seems to miss my neighborhood.
Fabulous Experience.
by RhondaTR on 2010/06/30 00:47
No other app in the world does what this app does. It actually delivers an experience. I have never heard thunderstorm recordings of this caliber and i've heard plenty. If you like these types of recordings, you will agree these are the finest. I'm shocked that my iPhone can sound so good. Beware, this stuff is addicting.
Rip off alert!!
by Jtttttt on 2010/06/29 21:58
I can't believe they are charging 10.00 for this. They should include at least 3 times the content to even begin to approach the fair amount of what they are charging for, this is such a ripoff. There are a ton of free apps that do better then this. One pissed off customer who will never buy anything again from these devs
Still the best!
by RevMommy on 2010/06/29 06:04
I love this app, and use it every day. I was psyched about OS4 multitasking, because I can listen and read or play simultaneously. It took less than a week for the OS4 version to post, and is now working splendidly with the new OS, so I'm updating my comments, and hope some of those above do as well. Communications on the Facebook page were timely and responsive even in the midst of update frenzy. I started with the freeware version (excellent), moved quickly to add the amazing thunder collection and now I own almost 30 tracks, which I love! It was really quite hard to live without Naturespace for a week during the transition--which proved to me once again how much I've come to rely on the app. This is my go-to method for sleeping, reading or relaxing. Great product, great company!
Broken under iOS 4
by mon10a on 2010/06/28 02:27
Wonderful soundscape, but stops under iOS 4.
Used to love it....not anymore
by Abt85 on 2010/06/26 03:06
Doesn't work with OS 4.0, very disappointed :(
Question...
by loveit245 on 2010/06/25 20:58
I LOVE this app! BUT, how do I get the free update? I purchased it for $9.99 last year, but now cannot see how to update it without purchasing it for $9.99 again...? Help?
Excellent Ambient Sounds - One Negative, Though
by McQ14 on 2010/06/24 03:35
I will give this app the five stars it should deserve if the devs do just one tiny thing: please, for the love of god, REMOVE the creepy startup sound/voice from this app! And from your Naturespace app too. Other than that, this is one of the most authentic and amazing ambient sound apps I've ever experienced. Like others, I balked at the steep price, and I still think it's too high, but this app is perfect in it's execution. Worth getting if you have the money.
please fix for iOS4
by cgerikh on 2010/06/23 02:57
please fix/update app for iOS4... the tracks stop about 5 - 10 seconds in. App worked fine before the OS4 update. Thanks.

Works great except after iOS 4 update it crashes. Have tried to resync, reinstall, reboot, etc. Same results. Will play for about 30-45 seconds then the app crashes. Unable to use the app at all now. However it was a great app I used daily when it worked.
Excellent Sound with one MAJOR FLAW
by jb108 on 2010/06/17 02:48
This is an excellent product. The sounds are very good, and there are no artifacts of recording, like loop problems. But there's one major flaw, and it's frankly baffling that the developer does not address it: the sleep timer only goes to 240 minutes, needlessly. Why not be able to set it for as long as we like? PLEASE address this.
Unbelievable!
by Ilexxx1954 on 2010/06/14 07:04
I hesitated in buying this due to the price but oh so glad I did. It makes you feel like you are in the thunderstorm. So realistic and 3 dimensional it is every bit worth the price. Best sound app ever and I have them all. Awesome!!!!!!!
Thunder Funder
by G2Media.tv on 2010/06/11 12:42
Just downloaded the app as a splurge for a rough week and am impressed by the sound, wow holographic, but under-impressed by the variety. It's a very nice app, but not worth $10. Gave it two stars because of the reviews, lots of people said it was "amazing" & "the best ever" maybe true, but you get just a couple of sounds and several are alike. I'm going out to record some thunder, then creating some cool graphics and charging you $5. If you have to have thunder, then your not getting some Starbucks for a few days, cause it's the only game in town. So beware.
Best Thunder App
by Trapper2000 on 2010/06/05 03:53
This is the best ambient thunder app available. There's really no comparison to other apps with inferior source files.
Thundergod
by NeillSomerville on 2010/06/02 04:42
Expensive but I would say it's definitely worth it. Really great sound quality. I use it most nights. I was seriously so pumped for this update with the ocean addon The new one is nice but there is a strange cranking / rapping noise every once in awhile that really stands out. Overall totally great app.
Not worth 10$
by faeaandpirate on 2010/05/23 23:05
The sounds are good but you can tell they are short looping segments. When you hear that owl you know the sound of the thunder coming soon after. This I discovered only after one use. There aren't many features other than the tracks. Truthfully you can find nice apps with similar sounds for free or a lot cheaper. I really wish I hadn't been foolish enough to spend ten dollars on this app. If it were 2.99 it would be more aptly priced.
Excellent
by Kessee on 2010/05/20 08:05
Sound quality is amazing when u use good headphones ( I use Shure in-ear noise isolating) and the earbud optimization feature helps wit lower quality ones. The free app has 5 different tracks. This app has 6 tracks. For $9.99 needs to have more tracks. I feel is overprice, but even so I don't regret buying.
My favorite app of all time
by meadow01 on 2010/05/17 21:10
I have been listening to Thundergod for months now, and I just love it. It transports me to another time and place, and leaves my mind clear and relaxed. And now, with the added track, I have even more to enjoy! Awesome job Naturespace. As far as Thundergod being expensive, its not. I think its a great deal considering how packed with storms it is, and like I said, I've been listening to it for months and I'm still not tired of it.
Sugoooooooi magical app!
by sakuratree on 2010/05/17 01:39
I purchased this app last night after I was dying to hear "holographic nature sounds" for such a long time! I had free app of naturespace and I loved it. There's 6 kinds and they all amaze me just like I expected it to be. It's worth a every penny!! Go for it :) Each track transports me to a new magical place. Last night I was on an abandoned old pirate ship lost in a stormy yet peaceful sea in a forgotten time and place. I can't wait for tonight's calming thundergod-induced adventure. This is the first time writing an app review. It's so amazing I had to!!!
Gorgeous sound
by Cobalt Chameleon on 2010/05/16 06:17
I don't ever remember hearing weather sound so beautiful! Worth every penny.
Best. App. Ever.
by TAGLA on 2010/05/12 12:48
This app is my favorite by far, especially since the recent update. Aegis is fabulous ... I used to set the sleep timer, but now I leave Aegis on all night. It's a perfect backdrop for deep sleep, and I'm hooked. You won't regret buying this amazing app!
Wow
by AstralMarmoset on 2010/05/08 20:57
It's like a $9.99 ticket to another dimension, well worth the price!
thank you for the update!
by godot.3000 on 2010/05/08 03:49
A new environment to explore!! thank you for the great update. I have very few complaints about Thundergod, but having to switch off ear-bud optimization was one small annoyance -- but you fixed it!!! great!! keep up the fantastic work!
i miss asgard
by K9 Fusion on 2010/05/07 07:16
I love this app, but the update removed my favorite soundscape 'tears of asgard.' Bring it back or by the gods I'll...
Awesome!!!!!!
by Gsmckee on 2010/05/05 01:01
Extreemly realistic. Absolutely love it.
The King of Storms!
by Danielle Atanagra on 2010/04/29 13:19
It really is like being in a thunderstorm! The other sound apps are all just toys after this, there is no comparison. While they have storm sounds, they don't provide the feeling of actually being in one. I actually forgot what room I was in when I was listening last night! Totally worth the money. Aegir is awesome, and now the app remembers what mode I left it in! What a great update! Thanks naturespace, it's amazing. Thundergod truly reigns supreme!
Nothing more authentic
by Skeeter7777 on 2010/04/27 22:54
One night I accidently launched this app and when I heard the intro (it was winter at the time) I completely freaked out nearly jumping off the bed in complete darkness. These recordings are like nothing I've ever heard anywhere.
GEAT UPDATE! Most realistic thunder and rain app available now--perhaps forever
by benny727 on 2010/04/26 11:50
Do you love the sound of thunder and rain? Are you willing to spend $9.99 for incredible sound reproduction? Then this is for you. Close your eyes, turn off the lights, and reach for your umbrella. This is VERY convincing. The stereo is astounding--even on earbuds. It is pricey and many people may decide it's not worth it. But for those who love these sort of apps, this is actually less expensive than a full length cd download on itunes. And with this, you get a timer, endless looping, etc. GREAT UPDATE!
Thundergod
by bpython on 2010/04/16 02:59
I really love listening to the various levels of thunder and rain featured in Thundergod. When I have a hard time going to sleep I put my headphones on and listen to Eternal Rain. Works every time. Thank you so much!
Great audio
by 210030767 on 2010/04/02 03:35
Treat yourself guys!!! This is real good. Audio is top notch... Make more apps guys, I want more......
Love the intro
by ScarlettLux on 2010/03/30 03:55
Other than a glitch that stops the sound for probably half a second, I love this app. Unlike some others I completely dig the intro. Like Pavlov's dog, everytime I hear the intro I start immediately relaxing.
Encouragement to the Creators
by Savvy Living on 2019/07/10 05:37
Bought this nearly ten years ago. Since then, I’ve surely used this more times than not—and really think about that. I’m leaving this review in hopes the creators see it and are encouraged to continue updating and improving the app. I’m a little worried it’s quickly becoming “dead” so I can only hope by some miracle that is not the case. I saw via the version history there was an update for iPhone X, which is a decent sign I suppose, but even still... There has yet to be another storm addition or UI change or even design change. Things like this make me disheartened, especially considering the time I’ve had the app. If you have good or even decent speakers, the sounds are brilliant. Stellar work. Please don’t let this fade into junk.
Best out there!
by LembasBread on 2015/10/27 14:33
I was hesitant to purchase this app because of the price and for months tried a variety of free or cheaper versions that left me dissatisfied. I can honestly say that after purchasing this app, I have no regrets! It was worth every penny. The sounds are as three dimensional as advertised. The thunder is not confined to "claps" but varied with rolling as well. The rain is also high quality. So glad to have this app
Only one storm missing
by Scottygrrl32 on 2018/06/10 15:05
These are the best quality storms you can buy, no awkward "jumps" at the loop point....in fact, you may not be able to actually FIND the loop point! However, for sheer grandness, I think they are missing Piasa the thunderbird of the Mississippi River (as seen on the cliffs near Alton, Illinois.) The booming reverberations of thunder bouncing off the limestone cliffs there are the sound of the Piasa (Pie-uh-Saw) bird's wings.
Amazing App.
by Jeanzog on 2016/04/26 05:22
This app is magical. I rarely purchase apps but this was an exception I'm glad I made. The sound is amazing! This app creates an experience by combining light effects and a truly holographic sound that is beyond any other nature sound simulators I've experienced over the years.
Realistic Storm Sounds
by ChicagoReviewer1 on 2015/08/06 18:03
This app is so realistic that when an actual storm hit, I checked my phone because I thought the app was running. It's far superior to other apps in that regard. I wish there were options to edit levels of thunder/rain within each track, but it's still very good. The timer function is perfect for sleeping. I highly recommend Thundergod app.
Perfect!
by carleyannk on 2018/12/25 06:32
This app is the app I would happily spend money on (and quite clearly did). The sound effects are ultimately, incredibly realistic and crisp. There is no obvious loop cycle as everything within each track flows wickedly smooth. Very pleased!!
I use this app more than any other.
by Civilian on 2016/11/24 03:36
Take it all together since 2007, this app has been my most used app. It has soothed me and my family to sleep so many times that I could not even possibly estimate. This app is very dear to me.
I don’t know how I would live without it.
by lindyreed on 2018/10/18 00:16
This app is my refuge...my escape...my life saver! 😁👍 It puts me to sleep every night, and saves my sanity when I’m tired of the harsh noises of everyday life. Thank you for all the peace you’ve given me! 😃❤️ #nojoke

An absolute fav, worth every penny
by ODDIV on 2019/03/05 23:08
This is a fantastic app. The sounds are perfect, close your eyes and you are immersed in the moment completely. This is worth every penny.
Love it - use it every night - zzzzzzzz

A+!!!! The depth with a good sound system is AMAZING... My Bose system really picks everything up... I mean everything. My life is music and this sounds AMAZING!!!
Worth Every Penny

Even better than the various thunderstorm CD's on the market
by Deg on 2009/11/03 06:28
Check out the company's free "Naturespace" app if Thundergod's price intimidates you. Personally, I think it's worth every cent. I have problems sleeping, and for decades now I've purchased CDs or cassettes (yes, I'm that old) of sleeping aids. I remember one CD from back in the early 90's that I liked ALMOST as much as this, but Thundergod is definitely better. It's got five different thunderstorm tracks, but I'd have gotten my money's worth even if they only offered just the first two—"Thor" and "Odin." Thor is much more dynamic with more violent, cracking thunderclaps, whereas Odin has powerful-yet-consistent thunder that's better for sleeping. I know $10 seems like a lot for an app that just plays thunder, but I'm telling you it's worth it. Seriously, even when considering the hundreds of available CD's out there (of which I've tried probably 50 or 60), this has some of the best recording, best production and DEFINITELY the best selection available. Try their Naturespace app for an example of how the app works and what the sound quality will be like, but come back here for the awesome thunderstorms (Naturespace is nice, but it's no Thundergod!).
Best 10 bucks I ever spent
by aneal138 on 2011/05/29 04:25
it may be a little pricier than other apps, and I actually misread the price thinking it was 99 cents. I cussed a little under my breath when I realized I had just paid 10 dollars for one app. but after I starting using it, I realized how much I love it! I LOVE thunderstorms, this plays 5 different kinds: loud thunder wind and rain, lighter thunder with heavy rain, rainstorm at sea, rainstorm in the forest, and just steady rainfall. I love the first one called "Thor" because I'm a storm lover, but I switch between the others based on my mood. it's extremely realistic and has a long track time because I rarely hear anything that sounds the same. and it always starts at a different place if that makes sense, just adding to how realistic it is. hands down the best way to listen to an artificial thunderstorm. I don't my phone on my ihome just about every night, and cuddle and close my eyes and I'm just astounded. if you love going to sleep to thunderstorms, you will want to have this app. you won't be sorry.
Apex app for thunderstorm junkies
by Codec717 on 2009/11/10 00:16
My previous favorite thunderstorm app was White Noise Storm. Now, it is a good app for the price, but Thundergod absolutely destroys it in every way. Granted, this app does not have randomly generated storm patterns, but the length of each loop is sufficently long that you will never notice the repeat. What really sets these two apps apart is Thundergod's audio fidelity! Incredible clarity and presence. As soon as I checked the Naturespace website and saw them recommending Grado headphones, I knew these guys were the real deal. For 10 bucks you can rest assured you will receive the absolute pinnacle in ambient storm entertainment! The audio quality alone is worth the monetary investement, believe me. p.s. love the way each storm is presented in descending levels of intensity, this makes it easy to choose one to fall asleep to without being startled awake by extra loud thunderclaps.
Ten Dollars???!!!?
by kshaps on 2009/10/13 22:50
I have been buying sleep sound machines, downloading and creating my own sleep sound audio tracks for almost 30 years, so here is the reality about this product: I listened to the "lite" version of this rain/thunder track with headphones. The track loop was very long, rich, and had amazing separation and depth. I was so impressed I actually put down $9.99 to purchase the full version. In the end, who wears ear buds or headphones when they are sleeping? The stereo separation and sound quality is meaningless when listened to on stereo speakers. In that environment, the earphone feature dulls the frequency range. I feel ripped off and manipulated after spending $9.99 for the full version. At best, it may be worth $1.99. All you get is five tracks. The timer does not extend beyond four hours, whereas the other sleep sound apps utilize the built in iPod/iPhone timer system which is up to 24 hours. With speakers, there are several other sleep sound apps which are just as good or better for much less money, such as SleepMachine, SleepMaker Storms, and Ambience. I was taken for a ride by New Age B.S.
high quality but needs an option to customize
by Jaceson on 2010/09/12 13:42
The sound quality is the best you will find for storms as far as realism is concerned. My only complaint is I wish there was an option to remove the wildlife sounds from the tracks, IE the frog sounds. The 1st couple times you hear them it's ok, however you'll soon realise everytime you hear them you become aware you are listening to a looping sound track thus killing the experince for me anyway. Still despite the slight annoyance I feel it's still worth the investment, but adding this option would make this a 5 star app and then some. It should be noted although there is little room for improvement, I have yet to see an update released. You would think for such a high priced app the dev would atleast add a few enhancements if not an extra track or two.
Like being there
by heylookatthecamel on 2009/11/11 21:37
The sound quality is fantastic. If I close my eyes, it really does sound like I'm there. The loops are seamless, although every once in a while there is a gap in the sound. The advice on their web site to set the EQ to "bass reducer" for my Bose earphones was right on the mark. Definitely worth $10. A few suggestions to make this already great app even better: (1) more thunderstorms to choose from, preferrably including a more intense storm, though I don't need it to stay awake, like a previous reviewer, (2) the ability to keep the app running while doing other things on the iPod, (3) the ability to modify the EQ setting from within the app, (4) settings, such as earbud optimization, should be persistent, so I don't have to remember to set the option every time I launch the app. Keep up the good work!
Amazing Sound Quality!
by Dave77748 on 2009/11/03 06:39
In the past I have worked on a lot of thunderstorm sound effects for personal projects and the ones I have worked with are either short repetitive loops or low quality recordings. So at first I was reluctant to purchase the app for such a large price. I downloaded the free NatureSpace app and thoroughly enjoyed the night at Lake Unknown. After some contemplating I decided to purchase Thundergod and I was very impressed. Each of the five soundtracks is over four minutes long and the looping is so subtle that it’s easy to forget that the tracks actually loop. Unlike other thunderstorm recordings, this app has a sense of depth to the storms with quality that is unmatched. I am very pleased with my purchase and am looking forward to additional storms if the developers decide to release any more.
Happy in the Rainstorm
by newbeehoney on 2010/08/02 01:19
Before I bought this app, I was unsure about it. I knew I loved the free Naturespace app, and I do love thunderstorms, but still... Ten bucks? So I looked at the price, and then I looked at the ratings. Then I looked at the price. Then I looked at the ratings. Then I bought it. And then, after only one night of listening, I rated it five stars, just like everyone else. You do realize that an album on iTunes typically costs more than ten bucks right? Well, this has at least an albums worth of audio on it. And it has, BY FAR, the best sounding storms I have ever heard. I use it almost nightly, I've had it for months, and I have easily gotten my money's worth many times over. I hope this helps you with the ten dollar dilemma that faces you now. Just do it. I bet you end up rating it five stars too.
Still the best!
by RevMommy on 2010/06/29 06:04
I love this app, and use it every day. I was psyched about OS4 multitasking, because I can listen and read or play simultaneously. It took less than a week for the OS4 version to post, and is now working splendidly with the new OS, so I'm updating my comments, and hope some of those above do as well. Communications on the Facebook page were timely and responsive even in the midst of update frenzy. I started with the freeware version (excellent), moved quickly to add the amazing thunder collection and now I own almost 30 tracks, which I love! It was really quite hard to live without Naturespace for a week during the transition--which proved to me once again how much I've come to rely on the app. This is my go-to method for sleeping, reading or relaxing. Great product, great company!
For those wanting updates
by jasmerrill on 2011/10/05 08:35
These sounds are amazing. It quickly became one of my favorite apps. I too was waiting for updates that brought multitasking, retina support, etc., but found out today how to get them. Naturespace has another app called Naturespace that has received all these updates. The app is free and then comes with a few sample sounds. Other sounds can be purchased within the app, including all the sounds found in Thundergod. And, if you have Thundergod installed on your device, the Naturespace app lets you download these sounds for free. So the end result is all the same sounds (plus some) in an updated app. Hopefully this will help some of those waiting eagerly for these updates.
Happy mistake
by DaddyYak on 2010/07/03 06:14
After taking an Ambien one night, I awoke the next morning to find that I had purchased a $10 that does nothing more than make thunderstorm sounds. Oops. But having now had the application for about a year, I can say unequivocally that this is an excellent purchase, and the money was well spent. Both its acoustic quality and variation in the sounds speak to the efforts that went into making this a top-notch program. It is tremendously effective at drowning out noise, and I often use it to fall asleep since I live in a place with a lot of traffic and barking dogs. A lot of dogs. The price seems a bit much, but I have no regrets from that night that I apparently don't remember.
Great application
by Tim Camber on 2010/01/28 22:52
This application is fantastic. The holographic audio is really well done, and something one should experience (do yourself a favor and grab a nice pair of earbuds). I was frightened of the pricepoint but don't at all regret taking the plunge. Well worth it. After learning of Naturespace through this app, I found even more audio in iTunes and on their own webpage. I prefer the higher quality files and the ability to listen in the background (using iPod app) and on devices other than iPhone is a plus. Visit Naturespace on the web and check out some of their other work. Also: I had a reason to contact Naturespace support and they were incredibly responsive and helpful. Great job, guys.
Awesome!!
by mrclubmed on 2010/03/06 07:38
I first tried out their free app as suggested in the description and it was quite impressive. To my delight, this one is equally impressive and then some. The realism is out of this world phenomenal. Unlike a few other review posters, I personally dig the intro while opening the app, voices and all. I really cannot say enough about this app and am sure it will be very useful for years to come. I have been listening to this on Bose computer speakers in case anyone is interested. I also will be listing to it on earbuds as soon as I stop drooling all over myself! hahaha..Bet all the readers appreciate me painting that picture. ; ) Great job to all the people involved in making this fantastic program, you guys rock!
Incredible!
by dmollison on 2011/10/18 13:27
These are the most incredible thunderstorm recordings I've ever heard. Nothing compares. What's even more incredible is that I listen to these on my stock iPhone earbuds. I can't wait to see what it sounds like with some real headphones! To all those commenting that Thundergod doesn't have multitasking support: I e-mailed Naturespace about this, and they told me that you can download their Naturespace app, and if you've already purchased Thundergod you can unlock the same thunder tracks in the Naturespace app for free. Just go to the thunder section in Naturespace: the tracks from Thundergod should say "unlocked" next to them. And then you can enjoy the thunder tracks while multitasking!
Unbelievable audio quality
by Phillis Poke on 2009/09/21 21:27
I don't usually write reviews, but feel compelled to do so. I had downloaded the first Nature Space application and was looking forward to any new content that was released. I have gone to their web site and found a decent library of additional scenes that go into your music library. This is an excellent addition to the original content, but in a new application. The audio quality is unmatched with anything in its category. It really creates a visual image through the 3-D sound. I find it very relaxing to put on, close my eyes and let my mind wander. The sleep timer is a nice addition.
Totally Amazing!!!
by iridium323 on 2009/11/24 16:40
This is the best app I have bought so far. After reading the reviews I was expecting great sound, but I wasn't expecting the experience. It really is like being there. I went to the developers website and saw they have all their stuff on iTunes! I bought 2 albums so now, when I am focused on listening, I use Thundergod, and when I'm just hanging out and checking email or whatever, I can listen to Naturespace in the iPod app, which can run while I'm doing other things. I am truly amazed every time I run Thundergod. Easily worth the 10 bucks.
Great escape for the money!
by sockeyes51 on 2009/10/18 17:47
I really enjoyed this applications and think that it is worth the money. The holographic audio really puts you into the middle of the storm and if you keep your eyes closed, you couldn't tell you weren't. The app is a little pricey, but I think it is worth the cost. The tracks are not short, and they loop, and each is different. I would recommend trying out their free application first, and if you like it then drop the money for this one. Otherwise, for people trying to find a relaxing escape this is a great little application.
GEAT UPDATE! Most realistic thunder and rain app available now--perhaps forever
by benny727 on 2010/04/26 11:50
Do you love the sound of thunder and rain? Are you willing to spend $9.99 for incredible sound reproduction? Then this is for you. Close your eyes, turn off the lights, and reach for your umbrella. This is VERY convincing. The stereo is astounding--even on earbuds. It is pricey and many people may decide it's not worth it. But for those who love these sort of apps, this is actually less expensive than a full length cd download on itunes. And with this, you get a timer, endless looping, etc. GREAT UPDATE!
What's up with Thor?
by Fastactin on 2009/12/09 02:37
The sound really is that amazing. Completely immersive in every aspect. I love the app and use it regularly to help me study. My only concern: what is the electronic buzzing on the Thor track? Every few minutes this buzzing starts, grows more intense then goes away. Very frustrating. Will up my review to 5 stars when it is fixed. UPDATE: You are right, that is the sound of cicadas. I have never heard them before. True to my word I have upped my rating to five stars. I lobe the app and look forward to new sounds and apps. Well done Naturespace.
Very high quality audio but maybe not worth $9.99
by Jim K22 on 2009/10/20 15:59
Overall I think this is a great app, the quality of the recording is very very good, probably the best environmental recording I've heard. Having said that what you get is 3 different thunderstorm/rain recordings and 2 pure rain recordings. So while the quality is high, what you actually get is somewhat limited in it's scope. If the quality of the recording is what is most important to you buy this app. If on the other hand you want a little more variety and are willing to sacrifice some recording quality you might want to try another app.
Amazing!
by Ambientluv on 2010/03/06 19:08
I have quite a few ambient sounds apps and this one is by far the best! The rain actually sounds like rain and not static and the thunder is amazing. Thor is especially mind blowing. Does sound best with headphones but I fall asleep listening to it over my jbl speaker and still sounds pretty good! I do think $10 is kind of steep for only five different sounds, but if you haven't already bought other ambient sound apps, this could be all you need. I really hope they update with a few more sounds though!
Great Sound Too Expensive!

Please make this app run in the background just like naturescape. Definitely the thunder sounds and surround sound available on this app are great. However, I rated it pretty low due to price and because there was just too little variety in the five sounds available. As the current app is with only five sound choices I would not have paid $4 but no more. There are two really good app's Naturescape for free by this same developer and White Noise $1.99 with really good thunder sounds that also have a lot of other great relaxing sounds available. Honestly, I listen to the others more than this expensive app because sometimes I just want a relaxing noise other than thunder and I do LOVE thunder. So, it's a great app just not worth $9.99 for the options. I LOVE the FREE Naturescape app even more. If it's not in your budget get the $1.99 White Noise app and you'll have 20 great sounds! And most importantly they will run in the background with the new 4 update unlike thundergod.
Sugoooooooi magical app!
by sakuratree on 2010/05/17 01:39
I purchased this app last night after I was dying to hear "holographic nature sounds" for such a long time! I had free app of naturespace and I loved it. There's 6 kinds and they all amaze me just like I expected it to be. It's worth a every penny!! Go for it :) Each track transports me to a new magical place. Last night I was on an abandoned old pirate ship lost in a stormy yet peaceful sea in a forgotten time and place. I can't wait for tonight's calming thundergod-induced adventure. This is the first time writing an app review. It's so amazing I had to!!!
Excellent Ambient Sounds - One Negative, Though
by McQ14 on 2010/06/24 03:35
I will give this app the five stars it should deserve if the devs do just one tiny thing: please, for the love of god, REMOVE the creepy startup sound/voice from this app! And from your Naturespace app too. Other than that, this is one of the most authentic and amazing ambient sound apps I've ever experienced. Like others, I balked at the steep price, and I still think it's too high, but this app is perfect in it's execution. Worth getting if you have the money.
My girlfriend thought it was really raining...
by Andy Crestodina on 2009/11/05 04:24
It took her a second to realize what I was playing! This one is great for people who know that great audio isn't always music. This makes a good compliment to everything else on my iPod. Sometimes it's hard to focus on writing or reading if there's music or radio on. It's great background sound for creative types and I play it at work. I haven't used it yet, but I like that there is a sleep timer. I like the idea of Thundergod in the bedroom.
EXCELLENT SOUND
by flyte44 on 2011/01/02 01:21
I have MANY rain and thunder CDs and this company is by far the best. They just need to make more. (And personally, I like the wind rustling in the trees, and you can make more ZEN motivated tracks.) You will not regret the purchase if you are put off by the price. Don't be. You will sleep peacefully, and you will enjoy the holographic sound. I have everything NatureSpace does. The NatureSpace app, THUNDERGOD app, and all of their CDs. The holographic sound is just fantastic, especially with good earphones. I use in the ear canal headphones and would steer clear of ear buds. (Yuck.) This company does have to get their butts moving and MAKE MORE tracks! Only seven CDs? The best and most realistic sounding rain and thunder ever. No hiss. No high tremble which sounds like bacon frying, just great deep bass thunder, and perfect rain. NOW MAKE MORE!!
Awesome but........
by mrbusters on 2010/09/20 01:02
I love sleeping to thunderstorms so I started searching for an app. After reading all of the reviews I decided to choose this one. I read the description and it said they recorded over 65 thunderstorms across the united states......really? Where are they? because on this app you only get 4. The quality of the sound is awesome,I just don't like deceving ads. The maker needs to let the buyer know exactly what they are getting.I thought I was going to get 65 different storms. But no......4 thunder storms and 2 rainfall. So for that....4 stars

thundergod: Insomnia Relief
Description
Audio quality. That is what separates thundergod from all the others. While many have tried to imitate our work, none have achieved the sonic supremacy of the Naturespace thunderstorm series thundergod. The experience under headphones is unmatched. Our unique 3D recording techniques not only recreate the sound of real storms, but also the detailed spatial characteristics of their unique environments. Follow the trajectories of hundreds of individual rumbles and strikes above you. Feel the rain on the leaves and in the water as wind pushes through the trees. Get lost aboard a giant wooden vessel as she navigates the squall. thundergod faithfully recreates the variety of storms that have been witnessed through all of history, striking fear and awe into the heart of mankind across the ages. Completely remastered, these storms are now much longer and stronger and are accompanied by a beautiful new UI with synchronized, full screen lightning flashes. thundergod puts the combined power of 6 years of storm recordings in your pocket. Unlike music, which can be distracting, listening to our storms while working or relaxing gives your mind the space to think and focus by immersing you into amazingly real 3D spaces with intricate and detailed storms that are so long that they never feel repetitive. Six storms are ordered by degree of intensity: the combative and aggressive Thor, the all-night rumbler Odin, the adventurous and fascinating journey of Aegir, and the magical and mystical forest of Loki, as well as two rain-only tracks that are perfect for a sleeping ambience. thundergod contains an album's worth of audio, but it actually feels much longer due to the seamless and infinite looping that Naturespace is known for. Providing both entertainment and function, thundergod is the Swiss army knife of thunderstorm apps. It's the one app you will keep coming back to because, in the end, it's all about the audio quality.
LOVE!!

Have used this app for years whenever we travel—marvelous ‘white noise’ that sounds fantastic & soothing!!
Encouragement to the Creators
by Savvy Living on 2019/07/10 05:37
Bought this nearly ten years ago. Since then, I’ve surely used this more times than not—and really think about that. I’m leaving this review in hopes the creators see it and are encouraged to continue updating and improving the app. I’m a little worried it’s quickly becoming “dead” so I can only hope by some miracle that is not the case. I saw via the version history there was an update for iPhone X, which is a decent sign I suppose, but even still... There has yet to be another storm addition or UI change or even design change. Things like this make me disheartened, especially considering the time I’ve had the app. If you have good or even decent speakers, the sounds are brilliant. Stellar work. Please don’t let this fade into junk.
An absolute fav, worth every penny
by ODDIV on 2019/03/05 23:08
This is a fantastic app. The sounds are perfect, close your eyes and you are immersed in the moment completely. This is worth every penny.
Perfect!
by carleyannk on 2018/12/25 06:32
This app is the app I would happily spend money on (and quite clearly did). The sound effects are ultimately, incredibly realistic and crisp. There is no obvious loop cycle as everything within each track flows wickedly smooth. Very pleased!!
RAIN......RAIN...................SOFT THUNDER ??
by MOOREZY on 2018/12/23 00:16
I wish you had “soft thunder” to go with the rain.....other wise I love ❤️ THUNDERGOD........ I’ve had it for year’s. Any update’s coming......??????? You know......some really different stuff ( you know.....use your imagination,sort of kick it up a notch somewhat........? DAVE MOORE.
I don’t know how I would live without it.
by lindyreed on 2018/10/18 00:16
This app is my refuge...my escape...my life saver! 😁👍 It puts me to sleep every night, and saves my sanity when I’m tired of the harsh noises of everyday life. Thank you for all the peace you’ve given me! 😃❤️ #nojoke
Great app
by Juand1982 on 2018/10/14 03:43
I use it every night to go to sleep. Definitely worth the $10.
Excellent

Only one storm missing
by Scottygrrl32 on 2018/06/10 15:05
These are the best quality storms you can buy, no awkward "jumps" at the loop point....in fact, you may not be able to actually FIND the loop point! However, for sheer grandness, I think they are missing Piasa the thunderbird of the Mississippi River (as seen on the cliffs near Alton, Illinois.) The booming reverberations of thunder bouncing off the limestone cliffs there are the sound of the Piasa (Pie-uh-Saw) bird's wings.
Love this app
by pebz13 on 2017/03/12 19:54
Great app. Surreal! Loved it so much bought the other app also.
I use this app more than any other.
by Civilian on 2016/11/24 03:36
Take it all together since 2007, this app has been my most used app. It has soothed me and my family to sleep so many times that I could not even possibly estimate. This app is very dear to me.
Amazing App.
by Jeanzog on 2016/04/26 05:22
This app is magical. I rarely purchase apps but this was an exception I'm glad I made. The sound is amazing! This app creates an experience by combining light effects and a truly holographic sound that is beyond any other nature sound simulators I've experienced over the years.
Love it - use it every night - zzzzzzzz
by CPSSNY on 2016/03/02 11:05
Best one of these apps that I have tried and have tried quite a few
Worth Every Penny
by £¥£¥£¥£¥ on 2016/02/22 10:58
If you like the sound of real thunder then this is THE app for you. It is pricey but worth it.
Please Fix !!
by Hog49 on 2016/01/02 08:08
Love your apps, but this opens to a black screen. I'm on iOS 8. Please fix it soon.
Not working
by Longtime big fan on 2015/12/27 02:05
V2.12 not working in iOS 9. Opens to a black screen and never starts.
Best out there!
by LembasBread on 2015/10/27 14:33
I was hesitant to purchase this app because of the price and for months tried a variety of free or cheaper versions that left me dissatisfied. I can honestly say that after purchasing this app, I have no regrets! It was worth every penny. The sounds are as three dimensional as advertised. The thunder is not confined to "claps" but varied with rolling as well. The rain is also high quality. So glad to have this app
WOW!!!
by Beach Magic on 2015/08/16 22:59
Favorite app ever!!!
Realistic Storm Sounds
by ChicagoReviewer1 on 2015/08/06 18:03
This app is so realistic that when an actual storm hit, I checked my phone because I thought the app was running. It's far superior to other apps in that regard. I wish there were options to edit levels of thunder/rain within each track, but it's still very good. The timer function is perfect for sleeping. I highly recommend Thundergod app.
Awesome
by Billbo74 on 2015/07/15 22:49
A+!!!! The depth with a good sound system is AMAZING... My Bose system really picks everything up... I mean everything. My life is music and this sounds AMAZING!!!
Fantastic
by Mika4658 on 2015/06/07 17:45
The best app ever!!!!! Helps me fall asleep every night. The realism is incredible.
Fantastic
by Novel-reader on 2015/06/07 01:48
This is the highest quality audio I've ever heard. Unmatched by any other sound app. It's 3D sound!
Money well spent
by best app fo sho on 2014/10/27 02:42
This app never fails to help me sleep. Well worth every penny. If you're on the fence about spending the money, do it. This company makes quality products and does immersive & realistic really well.
End of sleep timer issue
by Mandy37916 on 2014/05/20 12:12
This used to be an awesome Ap to fall asleep to! But now after your sleep timer runs out it plays this obnoxious "theme" music that wakes me up every time! Completely kills the effect of falling to sleep by this ap because you know this weird theme music is coming and will scare the crap out of you and ruin what sleep you were having. Fix this problem please! We don't need that at the end of our timer!
Not worth the $$$$
by MissyBWilliams on 2013/08/15 04:19
So disappointed that I cannot run this in the background. Great sound but expected way more for the price!!!
I downgraded my review
by verafide on 2012/10/08 06:21
This is an awesome app at heart, but no updates since 2010 and your still charging $10 bucks?! Come on! At least make this have the ability to run in the background! Hope this gets your attention.
Great Sounding BUT...
by Maji313 on 2012/07/22 04:12
Doesn't support multitasking. I usually like reading a book to atmospheric sounds but as soon as you come out this app, the thunder stops.
Great quality... absolutely NO updates!
by Kazonomics on 2012/07/03 08:07
$10 bucks is upper echelon in the app store as far as price goes. Quality is great, now throw us a bone and update please. Had this over a year and no additional support at all on this. Please allow to run in the background as well.
I want to give it 5 stars...
by LaFlaRedhead on 2012/01/28 23:50
But this app does not support multitasking like their Naturespace App supports. Other than this minor issue, I am in serious like with 3d, holographic sound imagery.
It's ok!
by Fototico on 2011/12/02 16:51
This is a pretty good app, with pretty good audio quality. There are others just as good or better though. What some of the other apps have that this one lacks is more tracks and they can run in the background. For me the inability to multitask while using it makes it useless most of the time. But that is just because I often use more than one app at a time. For example, a guided meditation app and one (like this one) for ambient background sound at the same time.
Incredible!
by dmollison on 2011/10/18 13:27
These are the most incredible thunderstorm recordings I've ever heard. Nothing compares. What's even more incredible is that I listen to these on my stock iPhone earbuds. I can't wait to see what it sounds like with some real headphones! To all those commenting that Thundergod doesn't have multitasking support: I e-mailed Naturespace about this, and they told me that you can download their Naturespace app, and if you've already purchased Thundergod you can unlock the same thunder tracks in the Naturespace app for free. Just go to the thunder section in Naturespace: the tracks from Thundergod should say "unlocked" next to them. And then you can enjoy the thunder tracks while multitasking!
I like it but...
by ATTENTION!! on 2011/10/08 15:15
It is NOT worth the $$
For those wanting updates
by jasmerrill on 2011/10/05 08:35
These sounds are amazing. It quickly became one of my favorite apps. I too was waiting for updates that brought multitasking, retina support, etc., but found out today how to get them. Naturespace has another app called Naturespace that has received all these updates. The app is free and then comes with a few sample sounds. Other sounds can be purchased within the app, including all the sounds found in Thundergod. And, if you have Thundergod installed on your device, the Naturespace app lets you download these sounds for free. So the end result is all the same sounds (plus some) in an updated app. Hopefully this will help some of those waiting eagerly for these updates.
Updates overdue
by Downerczx on 2011/09/24 08:24
No updates or multitasking minimize the usefulness of this app.
Background
by jdawg21 on 2011/09/06 05:14
Please make it so that it can be played in the background
needs to support mutitasking
by jsrtm_1 on 2011/08/28 09:22
For ten bucks it should have mutitasking. The other Naturespace app has mutitalksing so I know it can be done but they choose not have it for this app.
Updates?
by CSUdvm on 2011/08/17 16:16
Way too expensive for 5 tracks and no updates-EVER. Description suggested many more storms than what is actually included on this app
Loving it
by mrpelon on 2011/07/27 08:43
Please update had for over 2 years...needs more myth god themes....update please
Listen to it every night!!!
by NazerNae on 2011/06/05 06:13
I was nervous about the price but it's well worth it!! I've had the app for at least a year and almost always go to sleep with it on. The quality is superb and the choices very realistic. I have even used it on occasion, in hotels, to drown out noisy neighbors or snoring. :)
Best 10 bucks I ever spent
by aneal138 on 2011/05/29 04:25
it may be a little pricier than other apps, and I actually misread the price thinking it was 99 cents. I cussed a little under my breath when I realized I had just paid 10 dollars for one app. but after I starting using it, I realized how much I love it! I LOVE thunderstorms, this plays 5 different kinds: loud thunder wind and rain, lighter thunder with heavy rain, rainstorm at sea, rainstorm in the forest, and just steady rainfall. I love the first one called "Thor" because I'm a storm lover, but I switch between the others based on my mood. it's extremely realistic and has a long track time because I rarely hear anything that sounds the same. and it always starts at a different place if that makes sense, just adding to how realistic it is. hands down the best way to listen to an artificial thunderstorm. I don't my phone on my ihome just about every night, and cuddle and close my eyes and I'm just astounded. if you love going to sleep to thunderstorms, you will want to have this app. you won't be sorry.
Needs multi-tasking
by Hunterzyph on 2011/03/23 00:57
Handicapped otherwise
Great app but out of date
by Jaek11 on 2011/02/28 15:25
I love this app and will add stars as soon as retina and multi-tasking support are added. We really need to be able to let the wonderful storms thunder in the background while running, say, a nightstand app. & the imagery is provocative but needs to take advantage of the new retina display. The sooner these happen the sooner I will consider further expansion of my Thundergod library, come on guys!! :). Great job so far!
Thunderous Applause!
by Big Voice on 2011/02/17 03:18
Thundergod is fantastic! Naturespace does an amazing job of placing you right at the center of the storms. You can hear the rain pouring down around you. The sound really is holographic! You may find yourself reaching out to catch a drop or two before you remember that its coming over the headphones. This thing is like the holodeck (Star Trek) for your mind. Thor is pretty much the Naturespace signature track and it provides a lot of bang for the buck. Huge explosions of thunder - the kind of storm you love to hear. Aegir is unquestionably my favorite. It puts you alone on the deck of a sailing ship right in the middle of a storm. If you can, put on some good headphones for this one and get totally blown away. (Hopefully not blown overboard.) My third favorite is Loki. This is very well done, with the sounds of thunder rolling over a swamp. It is kind of magical. Here is also a good tip. I just recently learned this one. When you buy Thundergod these tracks all become available to you in the full Naturespace app (just download from their store at no additional cost). It is a better deal than buying them separately. I just left a review for the Naturespace app - their other environments are great too. Enjoy!
Really Great!
by thepixelwrangler on 2011/02/03 18:45
Just bought this and though a bit pricey it delivers! Just as advertised. Naturespace never disappoints.
Worth the price
by d2h on 2011/02/01 02:04
Is it expensive? Yes. Is it worth helping me sleep (and relax)? Absolutely!
Excellent.
by Shondab on 2011/01/19 18:23
This app is packed with great storm sounds. You can also get them al la carte in the free Naturespace app. This was one of my first apps and I still use it every night. If you love storms, you need this app. It really puts your there.
What's wrong with ME?
by RipW on 2011/01/18 02:28
I'm at a loss understanding exactly what all the glowing praise is all about. I have a FREE thunderstorm app that runs circles around this. In fact, the splash screen is the most impressive feature about this app. Perhaps I'm just tone deaf or maybe I expected too much, but I wish I had saved my $10.00 for something else.

Unbelievable the most realistic sounds available
by nsl4 on 2010/12/28 16:53
This is one of the best apps I've purchase on my iPhone and I would highly recommend it to everyone. The quality of these recordings can't be matched by anything else I've found in the iTunes store. Some may say the tracks are expensive but honestly you get what you pay for. If you're happy with a short synthetic loop of wind or rain look for the many free apps in store - get Naturespace for the real thing you won't be disappointed. You'll use this app more than enough to justify the pricetag. The team are very quick an helpful dealing with questions and support. Go on treat yourself - you won't regret it.
Awesome, awesome, awesome...
by Jardon-21 on 2010/12/09 04:12
If I could say this more and not be repetitive and boring I would do it. This is by far my favourite ambience/nature-sound app in the entire app store. The quality of this product is just amazing. "Aegir" is my favourite to fall asleep or imagining beying on a journey in past times to some secret ancient mystery :-)
Just what I was looking for...
by Rerrlj on 2010/11/09 04:49

I bought this App about a year ago and it is one of the most used Apps on my Touch. Although they probably are asking a little too much for it, it is by far the best sounding App I've purchased. I use my Sony MDR-XB300 stereo headphones and I'm blown away every time I listen. A great item for any storm or rain lover. 
REALLY, no multitasking?
by spartan5122 on 2010/10/13 06:13
Great sound app, but it's uses are dramatically curtailed because it STILL does not support multitasking. For as long as iOS 4.0 as been out, at this point, this lazy oversight is unacceptable and I would not purchase until multitasking is enabled (so you can use this app just like any other sound-based app: WHILE you do other things with your iPod/iPhone)
please show me the update
by John seset on 2010/10/06 13:14
it s great app !!! great sound its so amzing but naturespace is can multitasking but it s can t mul tasking i want and i need it plz show me update
Awesome but........

I love sleeping to thunderstorms so I started searching for an app. After reading all of the reviews I decided to choose this one. I read the description and it said they recorded over 65 thunderstorms across the united states......really? Where are they? because on this app you only get 4. The quality of the sound is awesome,I just don't like deceving ads. The maker needs to let the buyer know exactly what they are getting.I thought I was going to get 65 different storms. But no......4 thunder storms and 2 rainfall. So for that....4 stars
high quality but needs an option to customize
by Jaceson on 2010/09/12 13:42
The sound quality is the best you will find for storms as far as realism is concerned. My only complaint is I wish there was an option to remove the wildlife sounds from the tracks, IE the frog sounds. The 1st couple times you hear them it's ok, however you'll soon realise everytime you hear them you become aware you are listening to a looping sound track thus killing the experince for me anyway. Still despite the slight annoyance I feel it's still worth the investment, but adding this option would make this a 5 star app and then some. It should be noted although there is little room for improvement, I have yet to see an update released. You would think for such a high priced app the dev would atleast add a few enhancements if not an extra track or two.
Great sound but too $$$
by Gordian Caesar on 2010/08/17 00:23
Sounds great but overpriced for what you get.
Happy in the Rainstorm
by newbeehoney on 2010/08/02 01:19
Before I bought this app, I was unsure about it. I knew I loved the free Naturespace app, and I do love thunderstorms, but still... Ten bucks? So I looked at the price, and then I looked at the ratings. Then I looked at the price. Then I looked at the ratings. Then I bought it. And then, after only one night of listening, I rated it five stars, just like everyone else. You do realize that an album on iTunes typically costs more than ten bucks right? Well, this has at least an albums worth of audio on it. And it has, BY FAR, the best sounding storms I have ever heard. I use it almost nightly, I've had it for months, and I have easily gotten my money's worth many times over. I hope this helps you with the ten dollar dilemma that faces you now. Just do it. I bet you end up rating it five stars too.
Great Sound Too Expensive!
by fundivegirl on 2010/08/01 21:57
Please make this app run in the background just like naturescape. Definitely the thunder sounds and surround sound available on this app are great. However, I rated it pretty low due to price and because there was just too little variety in the five sounds available. As the current app is with only five sound choices I would not have paid $4 but no more. There are two really good app's Naturescape for free by this same developer and White Noise $1.99 with really good thunder sounds that also have a lot of other great relaxing sounds available. Honestly, I listen to the others more than this expensive app because sometimes I just want a relaxing noise other than thunder and I do LOVE thunder. So, it's a great app just not worth $9.99 for the options. I LOVE the FREE Naturescape app even more. If it's not in your budget get the $1.99 White Noise app and you'll have 20 great sounds! And most importantly they will run in the background with the new 4 update unlike thundergod.
Realistic and 3D sound
by Eleora3 on 2010/07/26 20:40

Beautiful Storms
by tired of traveling on biz on 2010/07/15 21:53
I remember and miss the storms from my younger days living in Michigan. Sounds incredible from my iPhone with Sony headphones. So amazing and real. Well worth the price and I don't have to worry about being struck by a lightning bolt!
Excellent!
by dgdw on 2010/07/15 05:28
This app is excellent however .... Now that iOS 4 supports multitasking so should this. Otherwise well worth the cost!!

June 29 Upgrade fixed the crashing problem
by eev from maryland on 2010/07/05 18:46
All is well now and I love this app. The recent upgrade fixed the problem with the app crashing after a few seconds. Pricey app but the best out there of this kind.
Happy mistake
by DaddyYak on 2010/07/03 06:14
After taking an Ambien one night, I awoke the next morning to find that I had purchased a $10 that does nothing more than make thunderstorm sounds. Oops. But having now had the application for about a year, I can say unequivocally that this is an excellent purchase, and the money was well spent. Both its acoustic quality and variation in the sounds speak to the efforts that went into making this a top-notch program. It is tremendously effective at drowning out noise, and I often use it to fall asleep since I live in a place with a lot of traffic and barking dogs. A lot of dogs. The price seems a bit much, but I have no regrets from that night that I apparently don't remember.
Fixed and sounds Incredible!
by _Neocane on 2010/06/30 12:10
Now that this app has been updated to work with iOS4, it works beautifully! The sound is amazing, this app is worth the $10 without a doubt.
Update still does not work
by SailthenetDad on 2010/06/30 01:48
Come on guys, the update does keep playing now, but it will not run in the background like NatureSpace does. Let's get it right with a new update ASAP!!!
Wow!
by geckodie on 2010/06/30 00:57
Rockin thunder goodness. No more waiting for the storms that always seems to miss my neighborhood.
Fabulous Experience.
by RhondaTR on 2010/06/30 00:47
No other app in the world does what this app does. It actually delivers an experience. I have never heard thunderstorm recordings of this caliber and i've heard plenty. If you like these types of recordings, you will agree these are the finest. I'm shocked that my iPhone can sound so good. Beware, this stuff is addicting.
Rip off alert!!
by Jtttttt on 2010/06/29 21:58
I can't believe they are charging 10.00 for this. They should include at least 3 times the content to even begin to approach the fair amount of what they are charging for, this is such a ripoff. There are a ton of free apps that do better then this. One pissed off customer who will never buy anything again from these devs
Still the best!
by RevMommy on 2010/06/29 06:04
I love this app, and use it every day. I was psyched about OS4 multitasking, because I can listen and read or play simultaneously. It took less than a week for the OS4 version to post, and is now working splendidly with the new OS, so I'm updating my comments, and hope some of those above do as well. Communications on the Facebook page were timely and responsive even in the midst of update frenzy. I started with the freeware version (excellent), moved quickly to add the amazing thunder collection and now I own almost 30 tracks, which I love! It was really quite hard to live without Naturespace for a week during the transition--which proved to me once again how much I've come to rely on the app. This is my go-to method for sleeping, reading or relaxing. Great product, great company!
Broken under iOS 4
by mon10a on 2010/06/28 02:27
Wonderful soundscape, but stops under iOS 4.
Used to love it....not anymore
by Abt85 on 2010/06/26 03:06
Doesn't work with OS 4.0, very disappointed :(
Question...
by loveit245 on 2010/06/25 20:58
I LOVE this app! BUT, how do I get the free update? I purchased it for $9.99 last year, but now cannot see how to update it without purchasing it for $9.99 again...? Help?
Excellent Ambient Sounds - One Negative, Though
by McQ14 on 2010/06/24 03:35
I will give this app the five stars it should deserve if the devs do just one tiny thing: please, for the love of god, REMOVE the creepy startup sound/voice from this app! And from your Naturespace app too. Other than that, this is one of the most authentic and amazing ambient sound apps I've ever experienced. Like others, I balked at the steep price, and I still think it's too high, but this app is perfect in it's execution. Worth getting if you have the money.
please fix for iOS4
by cgerikh on 2010/06/23 02:57
please fix/update app for iOS4... the tracks stop about 5 - 10 seconds in. App worked fine before the OS4 update. Thanks.
Crashes under iOS4
by Nickoshia on 2010/06/22 23:29
Works great except after iOS 4 update it crashes. Have tried to resync, reinstall, reboot, etc. Same results. Will play for about 30-45 seconds then the app crashes. Unable to use the app at all now. However it was a great app I used daily when it worked.
Excellent Sound with one MAJOR FLAW
by jb108 on 2010/06/17 02:48
This is an excellent product. The sounds are very good, and there are no artifacts of recording, like loop problems. But there's one major flaw, and it's frankly baffling that the developer does not address it: the sleep timer only goes to 240 minutes, needlessly. Why not be able to set it for as long as we like? PLEASE address this.
Unbelievable!
by Ilexxx1954 on 2010/06/14 07:04
I hesitated in buying this due to the price but oh so glad I did. It makes you feel like you are in the thunderstorm. So realistic and 3 dimensional it is every bit worth the price. Best sound app ever and I have them all. Awesome!!!!!!!
Thunder Funder
by G2Media.tv on 2010/06/11 12:42
Just downloaded the app as a splurge for a rough week and am impressed by the sound, wow holographic, but under-impressed by the variety. It's a very nice app, but not worth $10. Gave it two stars because of the reviews, lots of people said it was "amazing" & "the best ever" maybe true, but you get just a couple of sounds and several are alike. I'm going out to record some thunder, then creating some cool graphics and charging you $5. If you have to have thunder, then your not getting some Starbucks for a few days, cause it's the only game in town. So beware.
Best Thunder App
by Trapper2000 on 2010/06/05 03:53
This is the best ambient thunder app available. There's really no comparison to other apps with inferior source files.
Thundergod
by NeillSomerville on 2010/06/02 04:42
Expensive but I would say it's definitely worth it. Really great sound quality. I use it most nights. I was seriously so pumped for this update with the ocean addon The new one is nice but there is a strange cranking / rapping noise every once in awhile that really stands out. Overall totally great app.
Not worth 10$
by faeaandpirate on 2010/05/23 23:05
The sounds are good but you can tell they are short looping segments. When you hear that owl you know the sound of the thunder coming soon after. This I discovered only after one use. There aren't many features other than the tracks. Truthfully you can find nice apps with similar sounds for free or a lot cheaper. I really wish I hadn't been foolish enough to spend ten dollars on this app. If it were 2.99 it would be more aptly priced.
Excellent
by Kessee on 2010/05/20 08:05
Sound quality is amazing when u use good headphones ( I use Shure in-ear noise isolating) and the earbud optimization feature helps wit lower quality ones. The free app has 5 different tracks. This app has 6 tracks. For $9.99 needs to have more tracks. I feel is overprice, but even so I don't regret buying.
My favorite app of all time
by meadow01 on 2010/05/17 21:10
I have been listening to Thundergod for months now, and I just love it. It transports me to another time and place, and leaves my mind clear and relaxed. And now, with the added track, I have even more to enjoy! Awesome job Naturespace. As far as Thundergod being expensive, its not. I think its a great deal considering how packed with storms it is, and like I said, I've been listening to it for months and I'm still not tired of it.
Sugoooooooi magical app!
by sakuratree on 2010/05/17 01:39
I purchased this app last night after I was dying to hear "holographic nature sounds" for such a long time! I had free app of naturespace and I loved it. There's 6 kinds and they all amaze me just like I expected it to be. It's worth a every penny!! Go for it :) Each track transports me to a new magical place. Last night I was on an abandoned old pirate ship lost in a stormy yet peaceful sea in a forgotten time and place. I can't wait for tonight's calming thundergod-induced adventure. This is the first time writing an app review. It's so amazing I had to!!!
Gorgeous sound
by Cobalt Chameleon on 2010/05/16 06:17
I don't ever remember hearing weather sound so beautiful! Worth every penny.
Best. App. Ever.
by TAGLA on 2010/05/12 12:48
This app is my favorite by far, especially since the recent update. Aegis is fabulous ... I used to set the sleep timer, but now I leave Aegis on all night. It's a perfect backdrop for deep sleep, and I'm hooked. You won't regret buying this amazing app!
Wow
by AstralMarmoset on 2010/05/08 20:57
It's like a $9.99 ticket to another dimension, well worth the price!
thank you for the update!
by godot.3000 on 2010/05/08 03:49
A new environment to explore!! thank you for the great update. I have very few complaints about Thundergod, but having to switch off ear-bud optimization was one small annoyance -- but you fixed it!!! great!! keep up the fantastic work!
i miss asgard
by K9 Fusion on 2010/05/07 07:16
I love this app, but the update removed my favorite soundscape 'tears of asgard.' Bring it back or by the gods I'll...
Awesome!!!!!!
by Gsmckee on 2010/05/05 01:01
Extreemly realistic. Absolutely love it.
The King of Storms!
by Danielle Atanagra on 2010/04/29 13:19
It really is like being in a thunderstorm! The other sound apps are all just toys after this, there is no comparison. While they have storm sounds, they don't provide the feeling of actually being in one. I actually forgot what room I was in when I was listening last night! Totally worth the money. Aegir is awesome, and now the app remembers what mode I left it in! What a great update! Thanks naturespace, it's amazing. Thundergod truly reigns supreme!
Nothing more authentic
by Skeeter7777 on 2010/04/27 22:54
One night I accidently launched this app and when I heard the intro (it was winter at the time) I completely freaked out nearly jumping off the bed in complete darkness. These recordings are like nothing I've ever heard anywhere.
GEAT UPDATE! Most realistic thunder and rain app available now--perhaps forever
by benny727 on 2010/04/26 11:50
Do you love the sound of thunder and rain? Are you willing to spend $9.99 for incredible sound reproduction? Then this is for you. Close your eyes, turn off the lights, and reach for your umbrella. This is VERY convincing. The stereo is astounding--even on earbuds. It is pricey and many people may decide it's not worth it. But for those who love these sort of apps, this is actually less expensive than a full length cd download on itunes. And with this, you get a timer, endless looping, etc. GREAT UPDATE!
Thundergod
by bpython on 2010/04/16 02:59
I really love listening to the various levels of thunder and rain featured in Thundergod. When I have a hard time going to sleep I put my headphones on and listen to Eternal Rain. Works every time. Thank you so much!
Great audio
by 210030767 on 2010/04/02 03:35
Treat yourself guys!!! This is real good. Audio is top notch... Make more apps guys, I want more......
Love the intro
by ScarlettLux on 2010/03/30 03:55
Other than a glitch that stops the sound for probably half a second, I love this app. Unlike some others I completely dig the intro. Like Pavlov's dog, everytime I hear the intro I start immediately relaxing.
Encouragement to the Creators
by Savvy Living on 2019/07/10 05:37
Bought this nearly ten years ago. Since then, I’ve surely used this more times than not—and really think about that. I’m leaving this review in hopes the creators see it and are encouraged to continue updating and improving the app. I’m a little worried it’s quickly becoming “dead” so I can only hope by some miracle that is not the case. I saw via the version history there was an update for iPhone X, which is a decent sign I suppose, but even still... There has yet to be another storm addition or UI change or even design change. Things like this make me disheartened, especially considering the time I’ve had the app. If you have good or even decent speakers, the sounds are brilliant. Stellar work. Please don’t let this fade into junk.
Best out there!
by LembasBread on 2015/10/27 14:33
I was hesitant to purchase this app because of the price and for months tried a variety of free or cheaper versions that left me dissatisfied. I can honestly say that after purchasing this app, I have no regrets! It was worth every penny. The sounds are as three dimensional as advertised. The thunder is not confined to "claps" but varied with rolling as well. The rain is also high quality. So glad to have this app
Only one storm missing
by Scottygrrl32 on 2018/06/10 15:05
These are the best quality storms you can buy, no awkward "jumps" at the loop point....in fact, you may not be able to actually FIND the loop point! However, for sheer grandness, I think they are missing Piasa the thunderbird of the Mississippi River (as seen on the cliffs near Alton, Illinois.) The booming reverberations of thunder bouncing off the limestone cliffs there are the sound of the Piasa (Pie-uh-Saw) bird's wings.
Amazing App.
by Jeanzog on 2016/04/26 05:22
This app is magical. I rarely purchase apps but this was an exception I'm glad I made. The sound is amazing! This app creates an experience by combining light effects and a truly holographic sound that is beyond any other nature sound simulators I've experienced over the years.
Realistic Storm Sounds
by ChicagoReviewer1 on 2015/08/06 18:03
This app is so realistic that when an actual storm hit, I checked my phone because I thought the app was running. It's far superior to other apps in that regard. I wish there were options to edit levels of thunder/rain within each track, but it's still very good. The timer function is perfect for sleeping. I highly recommend Thundergod app.
Perfect!
by carleyannk on 2018/12/25 06:32
This app is the app I would happily spend money on (and quite clearly did). The sound effects are ultimately, incredibly realistic and crisp. There is no obvious loop cycle as everything within each track flows wickedly smooth. Very pleased!!
I use this app more than any other.
by Civilian on 2016/11/24 03:36
Take it all together since 2007, this app has been my most used app. It has soothed me and my family to sleep so many times that I could not even possibly estimate. This app is very dear to me.
I don’t know how I would live without it.
by lindyreed on 2018/10/18 00:16
This app is my refuge...my escape...my life saver! 😁👍 It puts me to sleep every night, and saves my sanity when I’m tired of the harsh noises of everyday life. Thank you for all the peace you’ve given me! 😃❤️ #nojoke
RAIN......RAIN...................SOFT THUNDER ??

An absolute fav, worth every penny
by ODDIV on 2019/03/05 23:08
This is a fantastic app. The sounds are perfect, close your eyes and you are immersed in the moment completely. This is worth every penny.
Love it - use it every night - zzzzzzzz

Have used this app for years whenever we travel—marvelous ‘white noise’ that sounds fantastic & soothing!!
Awesome
by Billbo74 on 2015/07/15 22:49
A+!!!! The depth with a good sound system is AMAZING... My Bose system really picks everything up... I mean everything. My life is music and this sounds AMAZING!!!
Worth Every Penny

Favorite app ever!!!
Even better than the various thunderstorm CD's on the market
by Deg on 2009/11/03 06:28
Check out the company's free "Naturespace" app if Thundergod's price intimidates you. Personally, I think it's worth every cent. I have problems sleeping, and for decades now I've purchased CDs or cassettes (yes, I'm that old) of sleeping aids. I remember one CD from back in the early 90's that I liked ALMOST as much as this, but Thundergod is definitely better. It's got five different thunderstorm tracks, but I'd have gotten my money's worth even if they only offered just the first two—"Thor" and "Odin." Thor is much more dynamic with more violent, cracking thunderclaps, whereas Odin has powerful-yet-consistent thunder that's better for sleeping. I know $10 seems like a lot for an app that just plays thunder, but I'm telling you it's worth it. Seriously, even when considering the hundreds of available CD's out there (of which I've tried probably 50 or 60), this has some of the best recording, best production and DEFINITELY the best selection available. Try their Naturespace app for an example of how the app works and what the sound quality will be like, but come back here for the awesome thunderstorms (Naturespace is nice, but it's no Thundergod!).
Best 10 bucks I ever spent
by aneal138 on 2011/05/29 04:25
it may be a little pricier than other apps, and I actually misread the price thinking it was 99 cents. I cussed a little under my breath when I realized I had just paid 10 dollars for one app. but after I starting using it, I realized how much I love it! I LOVE thunderstorms, this plays 5 different kinds: loud thunder wind and rain, lighter thunder with heavy rain, rainstorm at sea, rainstorm in the forest, and just steady rainfall. I love the first one called "Thor" because I'm a storm lover, but I switch between the others based on my mood. it's extremely realistic and has a long track time because I rarely hear anything that sounds the same. and it always starts at a different place if that makes sense, just adding to how realistic it is. hands down the best way to listen to an artificial thunderstorm. I don't my phone on my ihome just about every night, and cuddle and close my eyes and I'm just astounded. if you love going to sleep to thunderstorms, you will want to have this app. you won't be sorry.
Apex app for thunderstorm junkies
by Codec717 on 2009/11/10 00:16
My previous favorite thunderstorm app was White Noise Storm. Now, it is a good app for the price, but Thundergod absolutely destroys it in every way. Granted, this app does not have randomly generated storm patterns, but the length of each loop is sufficently long that you will never notice the repeat. What really sets these two apps apart is Thundergod's audio fidelity! Incredible clarity and presence. As soon as I checked the Naturespace website and saw them recommending Grado headphones, I knew these guys were the real deal. For 10 bucks you can rest assured you will receive the absolute pinnacle in ambient storm entertainment! The audio quality alone is worth the monetary investement, believe me. p.s. love the way each storm is presented in descending levels of intensity, this makes it easy to choose one to fall asleep to without being startled awake by extra loud thunderclaps.
Ten Dollars???!!!?
by kshaps on 2009/10/13 22:50
I have been buying sleep sound machines, downloading and creating my own sleep sound audio tracks for almost 30 years, so here is the reality about this product: I listened to the "lite" version of this rain/thunder track with headphones. The track loop was very long, rich, and had amazing separation and depth. I was so impressed I actually put down $9.99 to purchase the full version. In the end, who wears ear buds or headphones when they are sleeping? The stereo separation and sound quality is meaningless when listened to on stereo speakers. In that environment, the earphone feature dulls the frequency range. I feel ripped off and manipulated after spending $9.99 for the full version. At best, it may be worth $1.99. All you get is five tracks. The timer does not extend beyond four hours, whereas the other sleep sound apps utilize the built in iPod/iPhone timer system which is up to 24 hours. With speakers, there are several other sleep sound apps which are just as good or better for much less money, such as SleepMachine, SleepMaker Storms, and Ambience. I was taken for a ride by New Age B.S.
high quality but needs an option to customize
by Jaceson on 2010/09/12 13:42
The sound quality is the best you will find for storms as far as realism is concerned. My only complaint is I wish there was an option to remove the wildlife sounds from the tracks, IE the frog sounds. The 1st couple times you hear them it's ok, however you'll soon realise everytime you hear them you become aware you are listening to a looping sound track thus killing the experince for me anyway. Still despite the slight annoyance I feel it's still worth the investment, but adding this option would make this a 5 star app and then some. It should be noted although there is little room for improvement, I have yet to see an update released. You would think for such a high priced app the dev would atleast add a few enhancements if not an extra track or two.
Like being there
by heylookatthecamel on 2009/11/11 21:37
The sound quality is fantastic. If I close my eyes, it really does sound like I'm there. The loops are seamless, although every once in a while there is a gap in the sound. The advice on their web site to set the EQ to "bass reducer" for my Bose earphones was right on the mark. Definitely worth $10. A few suggestions to make this already great app even better: (1) more thunderstorms to choose from, preferrably including a more intense storm, though I don't need it to stay awake, like a previous reviewer, (2) the ability to keep the app running while doing other things on the iPod, (3) the ability to modify the EQ setting from within the app, (4) settings, such as earbud optimization, should be persistent, so I don't have to remember to set the option every time I launch the app. Keep up the good work!
Amazing Sound Quality!
by Dave77748 on 2009/11/03 06:39
In the past I have worked on a lot of thunderstorm sound effects for personal projects and the ones I have worked with are either short repetitive loops or low quality recordings. So at first I was reluctant to purchase the app for such a large price. I downloaded the free NatureSpace app and thoroughly enjoyed the night at Lake Unknown. After some contemplating I decided to purchase Thundergod and I was very impressed. Each of the five soundtracks is over four minutes long and the looping is so subtle that it’s easy to forget that the tracks actually loop. Unlike other thunderstorm recordings, this app has a sense of depth to the storms with quality that is unmatched. I am very pleased with my purchase and am looking forward to additional storms if the developers decide to release any more.
Happy in the Rainstorm
by newbeehoney on 2010/08/02 01:19
Before I bought this app, I was unsure about it. I knew I loved the free Naturespace app, and I do love thunderstorms, but still... Ten bucks? So I looked at the price, and then I looked at the ratings. Then I looked at the price. Then I looked at the ratings. Then I bought it. And then, after only one night of listening, I rated it five stars, just like everyone else. You do realize that an album on iTunes typically costs more than ten bucks right? Well, this has at least an albums worth of audio on it. And it has, BY FAR, the best sounding storms I have ever heard. I use it almost nightly, I've had it for months, and I have easily gotten my money's worth many times over. I hope this helps you with the ten dollar dilemma that faces you now. Just do it. I bet you end up rating it five stars too.
Still the best!

For those wanting updates
by jasmerrill on 2011/10/05 08:35
These sounds are amazing. It quickly became one of my favorite apps. I too was waiting for updates that brought multitasking, retina support, etc., but found out today how to get them. Naturespace has another app called Naturespace that has received all these updates. The app is free and then comes with a few sample sounds. Other sounds can be purchased within the app, including all the sounds found in Thundergod. And, if you have Thundergod installed on your device, the Naturespace app lets you download these sounds for free. So the end result is all the same sounds (plus some) in an updated app. Hopefully this will help some of those waiting eagerly for these updates.
Happy mistake
by DaddyYak on 2010/07/03 06:14
After taking an Ambien one night, I awoke the next morning to find that I had purchased a $10 that does nothing more than make thunderstorm sounds. Oops. But having now had the application for about a year, I can say unequivocally that this is an excellent purchase, and the money was well spent. Both its acoustic quality and variation in the sounds speak to the efforts that went into making this a top-notch program. It is tremendously effective at drowning out noise, and I often use it to fall asleep since I live in a place with a lot of traffic and barking dogs. A lot of dogs. The price seems a bit much, but I have no regrets from that night that I apparently don't remember.
Great application
by Tim Camber on 2010/01/28 22:52
This application is fantastic. The holographic audio is really well done, and something one should experience (do yourself a favor and grab a nice pair of earbuds). I was frightened of the pricepoint but don't at all regret taking the plunge. Well worth it. After learning of Naturespace through this app, I found even more audio in iTunes and on their own webpage. I prefer the higher quality files and the ability to listen in the background (using iPod app) and on devices other than iPhone is a plus. Visit Naturespace on the web and check out some of their other work. Also: I had a reason to contact Naturespace support and they were incredibly responsive and helpful. Great job, guys.
Awesome!!
by mrclubmed on 2010/03/06 07:38
I first tried out their free app as suggested in the description and it was quite impressive. To my delight, this one is equally impressive and then some. The realism is out of this world phenomenal. Unlike a few other review posters, I personally dig the intro while opening the app, voices and all. I really cannot say enough about this app and am sure it will be very useful for years to come. I have been listening to this on Bose computer speakers in case anyone is interested. I also will be listing to it on earbuds as soon as I stop drooling all over myself! hahaha..Bet all the readers appreciate me painting that picture. ; ) Great job to all the people involved in making this fantastic program, you guys rock!
Incredible!
by dmollison on 2011/10/18 13:27
These are the most incredible thunderstorm recordings I've ever heard. Nothing compares. What's even more incredible is that I listen to these on my stock iPhone earbuds. I can't wait to see what it sounds like with some real headphones! To all those commenting that Thundergod doesn't have multitasking support: I e-mailed Naturespace about this, and they told me that you can download their Naturespace app, and if you've already purchased Thundergod you can unlock the same thunder tracks in the Naturespace app for free. Just go to the thunder section in Naturespace: the tracks from Thundergod should say "unlocked" next to them. And then you can enjoy the thunder tracks while multitasking!
Unbelievable audio quality
by Phillis Poke on 2009/09/21 21:27
I don't usually write reviews, but feel compelled to do so. I had downloaded the first Nature Space application and was looking forward to any new content that was released. I have gone to their web site and found a decent library of additional scenes that go into your music library. This is an excellent addition to the original content, but in a new application. The audio quality is unmatched with anything in its category. It really creates a visual image through the 3-D sound. I find it very relaxing to put on, close my eyes and let my mind wander. The sleep timer is a nice addition.
Totally Amazing!!!

This is the best app I have bought so far. After reading the reviews I was expecting great sound, but I wasn't expecting the experience. It really is like being there. I went to the developers website and saw they have all their stuff on iTunes! I bought 2 albums so now, when I am focused on listening, I use Thundergod, and when I'm just hanging out and checking email or whatever, I can listen to Naturespace in the iPod app, which can run while I'm doing other things. I am truly amazed every time I run Thundergod. Easily worth the 10 bucks.
Great escape for the money!

I really enjoyed this applications and think that it is worth the money. The holographic audio really puts you into the middle of the storm and if you keep your eyes closed, you couldn't tell you weren't. The app is a little pricey, but I think it is worth the cost. The tracks are not short, and they loop, and each is different. I would recommend trying out their free application first, and if you like it then drop the money for this one. Otherwise, for people trying to find a relaxing escape this is a great little application.
GEAT UPDATE! Most realistic thunder and rain app available now--perhaps forever
by benny727 on 2010/04/26 11:50
Do you love the sound of thunder and rain? Are you willing to spend $9.99 for incredible sound reproduction? Then this is for you. Close your eyes, turn off the lights, and reach for your umbrella. This is VERY convincing. The stereo is astounding--even on earbuds. It is pricey and many people may decide it's not worth it. But for those who love these sort of apps, this is actually less expensive than a full length cd download on itunes. And with this, you get a timer, endless looping, etc. GREAT UPDATE!
What's up with Thor?
by Fastactin on 2009/12/09 02:37
The sound really is that amazing. Completely immersive in every aspect. I love the app and use it regularly to help me study. My only concern: what is the electronic buzzing on the Thor track? Every few minutes this buzzing starts, grows more intense then goes away. Very frustrating. Will up my review to 5 stars when it is fixed. UPDATE: You are right, that is the sound of cicadas. I have never heard them before. True to my word I have upped my rating to five stars. I lobe the app and look forward to new sounds and apps. Well done Naturespace.
Very high quality audio but maybe not worth $9.99
by Jim K22 on 2009/10/20 15:59
Overall I think this is a great app, the quality of the recording is very very good, probably the best environmental recording I've heard. Having said that what you get is 3 different thunderstorm/rain recordings and 2 pure rain recordings. So while the quality is high, what you actually get is somewhat limited in it's scope. If the quality of the recording is what is most important to you buy this app. If on the other hand you want a little more variety and are willing to sacrifice some recording quality you might want to try another app.
Amazing!
by Ambientluv on 2010/03/06 19:08
I have quite a few ambient sounds apps and this one is by far the best! The rain actually sounds like rain and not static and the thunder is amazing. Thor is especially mind blowing. Does sound best with headphones but I fall asleep listening to it over my jbl speaker and still sounds pretty good! I do think $10 is kind of steep for only five different sounds, but if you haven't already bought other ambient sound apps, this could be all you need. I really hope they update with a few more sounds though!
Great Sound Too Expensive!
by fundivegirl on 2010/08/01 21:57
Please make this app run in the background just like naturescape. Definitely the thunder sounds and surround sound available on this app are great. However, I rated it pretty low due to price and because there was just too little variety in the five sounds available. As the current app is with only five sound choices I would not have paid $4 but no more. There are two really good app's Naturescape for free by this same developer and White Noise $1.99 with really good thunder sounds that also have a lot of other great relaxing sounds available. Honestly, I listen to the others more than this expensive app because sometimes I just want a relaxing noise other than thunder and I do LOVE thunder. So, it's a great app just not worth $9.99 for the options. I LOVE the FREE Naturescape app even more. If it's not in your budget get the $1.99 White Noise app and you'll have 20 great sounds! And most importantly they will run in the background with the new 4 update unlike thundergod.
Sugoooooooi magical app!
by sakuratree on 2010/05/17 01:39
I purchased this app last night after I was dying to hear "holographic nature sounds" for such a long time! I had free app of naturespace and I loved it. There's 6 kinds and they all amaze me just like I expected it to be. It's worth a every penny!! Go for it :) Each track transports me to a new magical place. Last night I was on an abandoned old pirate ship lost in a stormy yet peaceful sea in a forgotten time and place. I can't wait for tonight's calming thundergod-induced adventure. This is the first time writing an app review. It's so amazing I had to!!!
Excellent Ambient Sounds - One Negative, Though
by McQ14 on 2010/06/24 03:35
I will give this app the five stars it should deserve if the devs do just one tiny thing: please, for the love of god, REMOVE the creepy startup sound/voice from this app! And from your Naturespace app too. Other than that, this is one of the most authentic and amazing ambient sound apps I've ever experienced. Like others, I balked at the steep price, and I still think it's too high, but this app is perfect in it's execution. Worth getting if you have the money.
My girlfriend thought it was really raining...
by Andy Crestodina on 2009/11/05 04:24
It took her a second to realize what I was playing! This one is great for people who know that great audio isn't always music. This makes a good compliment to everything else on my iPod. Sometimes it's hard to focus on writing or reading if there's music or radio on. It's great background sound for creative types and I play it at work. I haven't used it yet, but I like that there is a sleep timer. I like the idea of Thundergod in the bedroom.
EXCELLENT SOUND
by flyte44 on 2011/01/02 01:21
I have MANY rain and thunder CDs and this company is by far the best. They just need to make more. (And personally, I like the wind rustling in the trees, and you can make more ZEN motivated tracks.) You will not regret the purchase if you are put off by the price. Don't be. You will sleep peacefully, and you will enjoy the holographic sound. I have everything NatureSpace does. The NatureSpace app, THUNDERGOD app, and all of their CDs. The holographic sound is just fantastic, especially with good earphones. I use in the ear canal headphones and would steer clear of ear buds. (Yuck.) This company does have to get their butts moving and MAKE MORE tracks! Only seven CDs? The best and most realistic sounding rain and thunder ever. No hiss. No high tremble which sounds like bacon frying, just great deep bass thunder, and perfect rain. NOW MAKE MORE!!
Awesome but........
by mrbusters on 2010/09/20 01:02
I love sleeping to thunderstorms so I started searching for an app. After reading all of the reviews I decided to choose this one. I read the description and it said they recorded over 65 thunderstorms across the united states......really? Where are they? because on this app you only get 4. The quality of the sound is awesome,I just don't like deceving ads. The maker needs to let the buyer know exactly what they are getting.I thought I was going to get 65 different storms. But no......4 thunder storms and 2 rainfall. So for that....4 stars
