Paid years ago now crashing after iOS update
by NaNo Writer on 2020/11/26 09:17
Devastated that this app I paid for years ago and have loved so much is now crashing instantly when I try to open it; this happened immediately after the iOS 14.2 update. I’m devastated because I don’t have the cash to drop on an annual subscription for the other version of the app and I don’t want or need all the bells and whistles of the other app version. I’m very upset with this and feel like the developer is trying to push users away from what used to make Relax Melodies great - simplicity and affordability. I just want my sleep sounds back. I can’t even migrate my mixes from this app to the other one - that’s absolutely unacceptable in my book. I paid for those mixes I made when I paid for this version of the app; I don’t want to lose them or have to pay for a subscription to be able to remake them. Very upset with the developers over these shenanigans!
Won’t open after 14.2 update
by bigmodernmess on 2020/11/25 08:10
I used this app to fall asleep, and it was wonderful. Paid for the full app a few years ago and it was worth every penny. However it stopped working after the 14.2 update. If the other reviews are true, that this is a way to force people into a subscription, then I am very disappointed with this developer for not removing the app and being clear about their intentions. I will not buy another app from Ipnos.
Used to be great
by BksFnst06 on 2020/11/24 09:04
I don’t know what the developers did, but my mixes no longer save. I have saved the same mix 3-4 times and every time I open the app back up, there are no mixes saved. I guess I have to find something else until that glitch is fixed. I’m kinda bummed, man.
Nice
by Future NowHere on 2020/11/21 21:42
Love it. Using it for years. The best. Even nicer now. Only problem is it stops playing sometimes :/
Won’t open after update
by BACollins on 2020/11/20 15:59
I adored this app and used it everyday. My phone automatically updated to iOS 14.2, and now the app won’t open. I paid for this app years ago to be able to access all of the sounds, and now it seems that I’m pushed to use the other Relax Melodies app and pay for the subscription. Very disappointing. Please help! I also am not able to listen to other music or audiobooks while the new Relax Melodies app plays. This was a huge convenience at one point. As someone with misophonia, this app was a life saver. Not anymore. Please help those of us who paid for this app and have been using it for years access these benefits again!
I paid for this and it no longer will even open
by EmilyMoby on 2020/11/19 06:04
I’ve been using this app for years. I paid for whatever paid version they had at the time, long before it was $60 a year, and now I guess they don’t want to support this app anymore... It’s been getting worse the past couple iOS updates—it randomly shuts off if I open another app but not consistently so it’s not like it acts the same for each app each time. And now it won’t open at all. And on top of that, the “app support” page doesn’t allow you to contact support directly. I tried, but could not find a way to contact support. Do not pay for this and definitely do not pay $60 a year for their other version when you don’t even have a way to contact them when the app suddenly decides to stop working altogether.
Because it's a great app
by SJdara on 2020/11/16 08:48
**** my phone updated yesterday and now the app keeps crashing! I paid for the FULL version of this app back in 2014. Please help You should definitely download this app it has amazing sound and I can't get to sleep without it. Even my children love this app.
Very dissapomired
by AndrewJGale on 2020/11/15 06:58
I have used this app for years. Since the 14.2 update, the all will not load. It seems this is their underhanded method of pushing users to their subscription based app.
Doesn’t Work
by Mayflower04 on 2020/11/14 06:06
Ever since the last iPhone update, this app no longer works. Super upsetting. I’ve been with this app for a long time, and it’s helped me fall asleep many a night. Loved the variety. Super disappointed in what the developer has done. Please fix it for poor insomniacs who can’t afford subscriptions.
App no longer works
by pfethlia on 2020/11/10 00:52
They released a new version that they want you to pay $60 a year for and now the old app suddenly doesn't work.
Keeps Crashing
by AF_Wife27 on 2020/11/06 18:18
Ever since the iOS 14.2 update, this app refuses to launch and will immediately crash when I try to open it. I’m really bummed as we listen to the “rain on tent” every single night and it helps to drown out outside noises ☹️
Broken
by JediPro2 on 2020/11/05 03:57
I’ve been using this app for years. Now it will not let me listen to my mixes without ‘downloading’ every time. So instead of any kind of relaxation, I’m left with annoyance and frustration. Thank you for breaking your app.
Nice tool to help with relaxation
by karaoke_lola on 2020/11/05 02:06
Update: I can’t add my purchased music for some reason. That was the best feature. Taking a star away for that. Previous review: I’ve had the app for a while but recently started using it again after getting bored with The White Noise app. I like that music tones are included and that I can import my own music (switched to the pro version). The guided sleep meditations are nice. I haven’t used all the features but it’s a solid app. Definitely try the free version first but you will want to eventually upgrade.
Nice
by Taken12467890558458 on 2020/11/01 05:09
Different sounds available to help sleep or focus if needed. Helpful sounds to fall asleep. No other app is nearly as good.
The Best Sleep App Ever
by _samboni on 2020/10/22 02:55
The best sleep app and it’s even better than the “upgraded” version which is made by the same company.
Love the app, but what about spatial audio for AirPods etc
by Fukdepolice on 2020/09/23 04:44
I’ve been using this app for years now and I just saw the spatial audio feature with my headphones. I wish there was a way to put it on a windowsill and it sounds like it’s actually coming through the window.. just a thought
Mixes won’t save
by Wagszilla on 2020/09/06 13:12
This app has gone downhill, arguably purposefully to get people to subscribe to their new app/service, and mixes no longer save.
Power Nap Relaxation Master App
by Santiago24x7 on 2020/08/28 12:52
I use this app whenever I have difficulty sleeping to keep me relaxed thru the early morning hours and super helpful for relaxing during my occasional power naps. I have used this app for many years now and I am pleased with its functionality. I continue to turn to this app when I’m unable to find peace in my hectic days. It’s simple to use and offers powerful features.
Missing sounds from free version.
by TheAaronM80 on 2020/08/27 04:49
Great app to sleep with, unfortunately for me it feels incomplete since its missing a good portion of other sounds that I was looking forward to (ex: Orbit, Milky Way, etc) and since I paid $3 for this premium version. Feel a little short handed. App feels incomplete :/ If it just fixed this one thing I’d definitely bump this up to 5 stars. Until then guess I’ll also keep the free version just to keep certain sounds....bummer
Fantastic
by Piclimber on 2020/08/19 20:39
I love this app
Great app for study time and evening routines!
by Rep3988 on 2020/06/19 03:47
I've been using this app for almost ten years. The binaural beats work quite well for me. I use this to get into the zone for writing and reading. I have a preset combination of music with binaural beats humming in the background. You can even play your own music and add the binaural frequencies underneath. A few minutes of listening and I'm in the zone for the long haul. Try it. It's worth checking out. I also use it to unwind at night when I’m reading in bed. It’s peaceful. I even use the guided meditations for relaxation before sleeping.
Their just letting this app die
by Rhxurvsj on 2020/06/09 00:49
All the other lower rating reviews just getting lip service because they know they screwed people who purchased the app when they switched to subscription and tried to sweep everyone else who paid for the app under the rug. I’m sure they’ve all been told what bs to spout when their questioned. Seems like all their replies are the same trying to sound ignorant of what they are doing.
Take the time
by Angela Cherry on 2020/05/23 12:55
With the state of the world. This app is NEEDED. Take the time to give your mind, body, and soul a chance to relax and journey away for 10 mins a day. You would not believe the difference, if you took 10 uninterrupted mins. 10 mins to close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and let your mind and your body slip away and relax.
I love this app!
by Bludvamp on 2020/05/13 20:31
I've been using it for months, and it is one of my go-to insomnia solutions. Both the free and paid-for versions are fantastic. ETA: It just keeps getting better. They've added more sounds, more features, and it still works on my very old Mini.
Lay back and relax...
by NYToo on 2020/04/22 05:51
This app is wonderful. The interface is smooth and easy to navigate and there are so many options to choose from. It's great from trying to get to sleep or just take a moment to relax and clear your mind.
Used to love it
by Htshnaghji on 2020/04/17 14:51
I’ve had this app with a lifetime subscription for years and loved it until recently. I started using it on a new device not too long ago and have found that it has become incredibly buggy. It gets stuck on certain screens, crashes frequently, and will no longer let me add my own music which was one of my favorite features. It looks like there hasn’t been an update in a LONG time and the developer has completely stopped maintaining this app. Really disappointed.
Used to Love this app...
by MizzDiva08 on 2020/03/19 06:18
Updated review: I used to love this app and use it every night, but when I got a new iPhone and I had to reset this app. It’s absolutely horrible now. None of the sounds that I’ve repeatedly made save, NEVER. Once the app closes, I have to recreate every single sound. Also, if you paid for premium to get the meditations back in the day, DONT UPDATE THE APP! They now make meditations only available for subscription, which is a total rip off, when you’ve already paid for the premium version of the app. Overall, you’d probably be best looking elsewhere. Original Review: I love this app, it has essentially every sound you can think of, that's relaxing and soothing. I can't sleep without it. You can set an alarm on it, so it goes off on its own or set an alarm for it to turn on. Either way, if you're an individual that likes to sleep to nature-like/relaxing/zen-like/soothing sounds, this app is for you!
Feeling compelled to edit my review
by Apple Rocks Hard on 2020/03/19 02:06
So, three and a half years after my last review, and all I gotta say is this. To the developers of this classic app, thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart, for your most recent updates and changes. The subscription only content is still there, but it’s out of the way now, and pricing is much clearer and more obvious. Furthermore, all sounds are now free and pre-installed, from what I can tell. The interface is much, much easier to use, and VoiceOver accessibility is significantly improved for adjusting the volume of individual sounds in a mix. I absolutely adore the community mixes feature, and I would encourage anyone who uses this app to please share your mixes for me, and others, to enjoy. I’ve decided to edit my review and up my rating because honestly, after its most recent update, this app deserves all the love I can give it. I’m still not in any position to use the subscription based meditations, but that’s OK. I finally have all the sounds, and that’s all I ever wanted. May try the meditations someday, but I’m in no hurry. To the developers, thank you again for a great update.
Awesome
by Beth Bianchi on 2020/03/17 02:52
Great app
App Developers stopped maintaining the app
by Poopsosiekeoslslel on 2020/03/01 04:48
I wish I knew that this app was in the process of being completely abandoned before I bought it. One likes to think that the developers would do well to maintain and update such a popular app, maybe present it with exciting, new content.,.,,BUT INSTEAD OF DOING THAT .,:they more or less threw this one away, in favor of “new” app in which they now maintain, putting all of the exciting , new content AND THEN PROCEED TO PLACE IT ALL behind a paywall. I’m deleting this app and then I am buying both a calm app and headspace subscription out of spite.
Like the options
by Red Soulstress on 2020/02/21 15:43
I’ve had this app for a while and use it for a while then forget I have it for a few then use it again. I like all the options and that you can combine sounds to personalize your relaxation.
Disappointed
by Jazzid04 on 2020/02/18 02:55
I purchased the subscription only because the meditations I was using went away. Then I realized all the meditations are basically the same. I requested a refund, but it was declined. The paid version doesn’t offer much and doesn’t seem to be worth the money.
Used to be my all time favorite app
by EP95123 on 2020/02/09 14:08
I don’t understand why this app was modified! Every time I launch it, I have to wait for it to “download “ my customized sounds. What’s the point of creating customized sounds if the app doesn’t save them now? Time to find a better app. This is a big disappointment.
Excellent
by Oscar Shorts Rock on 2020/02/01 04:42
Create your own mixture of the sounds that please you.
Great controls and sounds
by singerboyjn1 on 2020/01/30 01:58
I’ve had this app for years and I always make sure to redownload it when I get a new phone. The ability to adjust the levels of each sound is so ingenious. I hope that soon these apps are configured to run with Siri and Shortcuts; that would take it to a whole other level!
Changes are BAD
by SleeplessinSouthDakota on 2020/01/17 21:33
This had been my favorite app for years but the latest updates are annoying. So many sounds are no longer really downloaded and saved for a long period of time so every night I need to download them again but then it takes ages!
Has to re-download sounds constantly
by DaneGH on 2019/12/12 17:28
I like the sounds this produces, but every single night when I try to turn on “brown noise”, it has to re-download the sound for some reason, taking up to several minutes each time.
No more updates & support?
by SwnB on 2019/12/09 20:23
This was a paid pro version of the Relax Melodies app which years ago I gladly purchased because it was such an excellent app. Now, there's a (FAR more expensive) "premium" subscription option in the other version of the app, which you supported with a revamp and addition of more sounds. This app? You haven't even made any attempt at updating this one for over a year and worse, you replaced the "pro" label with a suspicious "P". This is a joke. Is this the way you treat your old loyal customers? To cease app updates and support to make us pay even more than we already did in order to access the new features? This is so disappointing.
Great app!!!
by Vinny123vinny on 2019/11/29 04:43
Awesome app works wonders helps me sleep
Awesome App
by W B-H on 2019/11/16 02:19
I love this app. So many features and sounds. I go to sleep easily with this; however, I wish it had airplay capabilities so I could cast it to my HomePod.
Babies and Animal Cargivers
by Tricia.Haenchen on 2019/11/12 16:10
This is an amazing tool to help children fall asleep. This also I have used to help an animal and a child in pain when nothing more can be done or given to them. Had a child that the parents wouldn’t allow me to administer any medication to them and she was teething painfully so the relaxation pulsation option helped a ton! Also am caring for a old, medicated cat and he loves the relation option, helps him deal with the pain!!! Amazing stuff, truly I thank you! But one thing, to your marketing team, why isn’t this advertised and brought to the attention of the public, these benefits??!!??
Sound apps
by Takal NY on 2019/10/30 10:32
Theres not enough free sounds. Also some sounds were once free and now they’re not. Lastly there’s not enough variety in the music of each of the sounds.. the music should repeat after maybe 5 min of the song or singing bowl or running water etc
Saving grace
by SPROGRESS on 2019/10/21 22:18
Epic melodies ... in this hectic world of IG, FB, ADHD, PTSD and social media in general, this app serves as an oasis. All I can say is THANK YOU!!!! (No they did not pay me for this review).
One of the best apps around
by Jennysheree on 2019/09/01 08:57
Highly recommend. Been using for a couple of years now. Overall this is my one and only sleep and meditation app. I recommend it to everyone I know. Keep up the good work!
Something happened
by T-man827 on 2019/08/29 03:26
Love the app but something happened that made it so that I can’t access some noises and I’m not sure how. It says I haven’t downloaded them but it’s clearly not the case since I’ve used them multiple times before. It’d be appreciated if you can look into it.
Best app ever.... when it works
by carliedanielle5 on 2019/08/09 06:00
I love this app and use it every night. I used the free app for a year before purchasing the bundle. Ever since purchasing.... my app shuts down when I open it. The app and my phone are both updated. (And yes... I’ve tried the old turn it off and on trick). Nothing works. I just want my app to work so I can sleep!!

Great app!
by merie22 on 2019/08/06 04:04
Love this app! I’ve been using it for a while now. Would love to be able to incorporate other music apps like amazon music, that would be awesome!!
Peaceful Sounds Peaceful Baby
by Somerville1968 on 2019/08/05 18:46
I play these sounds for my baby as she falls asleep. They help her fall asleep peacefully. Especially Tibetan bowls. That’s her fave.
Not saving mixes again
by NW554 on 2019/07/31 05:14
Soothing, life like sounds help me fall asleep every night. A lot to choose from too. Support helped with a simple fix! 5 ⭐️s Update: Not saving Mixes again!! Ugh! I don’t know why it keeps happening. Do I continually need to reinstall this app in order for it to work?!
DO NOT purchase!
by Nursemel1 on 2019/07/13 04:29
I cant believe you guys are still stealing people money! Shame on you guys! I purchased it because I used it all the time- don’t do it! Nothing different as they claim! It’s the same - and I did not need to spend $20!! Yes $20. I still don’t have access to over half of the sounds or meditations! I emailed the developer and they will not refund! They say I need to go through Apple. So I will try. Do not spend any money! The app is fine and works fine with out spending any money! Waste of $20!
Good
by c(O_o)3 on 2019/07/10 02:12
I’ve been using this for years, but over the last year I’ve been having repeated bugs and issues that I’ve been reporting. The feedback I get is to restart my phone (I’m not doing that every night), and other time consuming troubleshooting. Hey, how about just fix it?

Amazing
by Siameezer on 2019/06/08 04:03
This ap is fabulous! It really helps me relax. Whenever I have trouble quieting my mind and falling asleep, Relax Melodies does the trick to put me in a tranquil state of mind. I highly recommend this ap.
Great sleep app

Easy to use. Easy to customize.
Great App!
by Senior Lady on 2019/05/23 00:24
It has helped me relax and lulled me to sleep. So glad I found it. Definitely recommended.
The best for getting to sleep
by TracyStoller on 2019/05/18 02:20
I love that I can layer sounds to create my own perfect sleep sound.
Used to be great...
by KatiKitsch on 2019/05/10 02:26
New version broke pink & brown noise, sounds I had been using to sleep with for years. Such a bummer.
Airplay could be a little easier to use
by TheIdeaCollective on 2019/04/27 12:08
Having to enable dock mode in settings and then selecting an airplay device outside of the app is a little cumbersome. Just add it as an option within the app. Solid app otherwise.

Huge variety of sounds for different needs
by NikkiD2020 on 2019/03/18 08:33
By far the largest menu of melodies and other sounds. Helps me tune out the noisy bachelor mockingbirds at night or just enjoy a trip to the beach.
Love it!
by Never rate games on 2019/03/15 21:06
Have used this for years. There is no better app out there!
Its good
by AnneldaMichelle on 2019/03/13 05:52
Most of the sounds i dont use but i love the way i can have multiple sounds at once.
Revised: money-grubbing subscription model ruins app
by chilaw2004 on 2019/03/10 18:48
OLD REVIEW: Huge variety of sounds, both natural and musical, and the ability to make custom mixes of just what you like make this program well worth it. We have a nature sounds generator from Brookstone that cost us well over $100 and it doesn't sound as good or have as much versatility. New review: Half of the sounds (mainly popular ones) that used to be free with the app but are now only available for an obnoxious subscription price? Is this supposed to be relaxing? No thanks.

Great App for Tinnutus Sufferers!
by rogue76 on 2019/02/13 04:58
Wonderful app that literally saved my sanity from an attack of tinnitus. With this app playing all day at work and as I slept at night, I learned to train myself to virtually ignore the tinnitus within two weeks. So thankful for this app!
Love It!

Paid app with additional monthly fees..
by Harry sack on 2019/01/27 08:44
Can not believe that there are in app purchases in an app that I already paid for. After the updates from when I first got it, the guided meditation and cool features are now a monthly fee. Stupid. Greedy.
Great relaxation
by afrazier on 2019/01/25 04:10
I enjoy this app especially when I travel, I have to sleep with some kind of white noise and this app does the trick. However I can’t get the app to save my mixes, I have to pick them every time I open the app.
Enjoy this app
by Jbell43 on 2019/01/24 02:39
Very easy to use, suits my needs. Lots of sounds.
multiple charges for same content

I paid for this app, but now i have to buy a subscription just like people who DIDN’T pay for the app! greedy developer; huge rip-off!

Dont UPDATE!
by Ana9010 on 2019/01/21 14:26
Most of the items becomes inaccessible after the update. With the update are ads and locked unless you purchase. Per ipnos, can’t revert to previous.

Sleep Issues Gone
by Francolorenzo on 2019/01/14 05:55
Using Relax Melodies has put my sleep issues behind me, I have no more problems falling asleep and it appears I wake better rested. Don’t want yo think what I’d do without it.
Fantastic

Great for whole family
by ROZPDX on 2019/01/05 04:50
This app is so simple to use. The sound quality is fantastic. Best of all, it has something for everyone so I use it for myself and to get my kiddos to fall asleep.
Great App
by Piscesgirl55 on 2018/12/31 12:21
Easy to use - good variety of sounds - I use it every night to fall asleep! One can mix a variety of sounds to create a unique listening experience
Love it!

I’ve had this app for several years and I still love it! It helps me sleep at night and stay asleep. Plus the new tinnitus relief meditation has really helped me. You can set timers for a quick 20 minute meditation at lunch or to energize yourself during a stressful day. I highly recommend this app. 💙💙
Best Sleep App
by Staceface87 on 2018/12/27 04:06
Best sleep app out there! Use it every day and it works great!
Great for Kids

Great night sound machine for kids to sleep to.
Yes

Very nice. Though it is repetitive, its also one-of the better apps
Large variety of sounds
by aquasunn on 2018/12/19 07:42
I’ve had this app for a long time and I enjoy the variety of options and the customization you can do to create your ideal sound.
The BEST ritual
by meshanklin on 2018/12/19 02:16
I use this app almost every night. I turn it on, open my book, and I’m asleep before the timer dims the sound. I’ve been using this app for a few years now... it never gets old. I mean, how does the sound of the ocean and peepers get old? I recommend it to all my friends. Always HIGHLY recommended! Also, I spent money to upgrade and it was somewhat worth it. I do think the developers should allow their basic listeners to try out the new sounds or they should be able to add sounds as they wish for .99 - just a thought!
Loyal to Series
by duckiesaurus on 2018/12/18 05:01
I’ve been a fan of the series for a long number of years. The music, meditations, and ambient sounds help me get into a state of calm that is usually hard to attain throughout my busy workday so when I listen to the stuff on these apps I naturally fall asleep. Everything is super calming and if you’re emotional like me, you’d feel closer to these contents.

BEST APP EVER
by Sweaad on 2018/12/15 20:29
it help me so much the sounds is clear and good quality
Great app except...
by leowill3 on 2018/12/15 20:08
...the volume scales for the sounds are EXTREMELY loud. Please make the sounds have a more balanced volume scale.
Paid for the original all enclusive app
by EveryDayUser on 2018/12/15 15:15
I come back later and they want to charge me for everything, excluding this 5 star rating so that I can get a couple of melodies 🙁🙁🙁
Essential for me!

Use as masking noise for tinnitus
by Silly*Lilly on 2018/12/13 09:24
This app is a lifesaver.
Amazing!
by Luv2dr@wX0x0 on 2018/12/13 08:57
I didn't even need the extended version of this app but bought it because I loved it so much. Now that I have the paid version, i love it even more than i knew was possible!
My favorite app. BUY IT!!
by pokinatchapunx on 2018/12/13 08:34
I love this app and I use it every day. It has a huge selection of sounds that are very relaxing. The sounds are high quality & don't sound loopy, and the interface gives its users great control over mixing and matching their own preference of soundscapes. I love that. And you can save your favorite mixes. I also like that they continue to add new sounds & features with their updates, so the app just keeps expanding and getting better which is fairly rare for a lot of apps these days; they just do one thing, but this app keeps growing. So many things I love about this app. I highly recommend buying the premium version. It's totally worth it, it's a high quality app. It even has guided meditation now - sometimes the Alram clock will not work for me. yikes! That's dangerous, so I just stopped using the alarm feature, which is a bummer because they have really great, gentle sounds to wake up to. But on the upside, they updated the app to mute when the iOS alarm clock rings, and when u hit snooze, the app unmutes and continues your sounds. That's great. Buy this app. Worth it!
Great App
by piano4all2 on 2018/12/13 08:20
This app works great and I use it every night..... There are many choices of sounds which can be played together -- and you're able to control the volume of each sound separately... The iOS version also allows you to use your own music files and incorporate them into your relaxation mix... I'm not sure if the Android version has that capability though... Anyhow, I highly recommend this app... I've been using it for over 5 years now... Also, if you have deleted the app and want to reinstall it, your saved mixes come right back too... In addition, if you have more than 1 iOS device and use this app, your saved mixes automatically sync to each of your devices (as long as the Apple ID is the same for each device).
Feeling compelled to edit my review
by Apple Rocks Hard on 2020/03/19 02:06
So, three and a half years after my last review, and all I gotta say is this. To the developers of this classic app, thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart, for your most recent updates and changes. The subscription only content is still there, but it’s out of the way now, and pricing is much clearer and more obvious. Furthermore, all sounds are now free and pre-installed, from what I can tell. The interface is much, much easier to use, and VoiceOver accessibility is significantly improved for adjusting the volume of individual sounds in a mix. I absolutely adore the community mixes feature, and I would encourage anyone who uses this app to please share your mixes for me, and others, to enjoy. I’ve decided to edit my review and up my rating because honestly, after its most recent update, this app deserves all the love I can give it. I’m still not in any position to use the subscription based meditations, but that’s OK. I finally have all the sounds, and that’s all I ever wanted. May try the meditations someday, but I’m in no hurry. To the developers, thank you again for a great update.
Not as advanced as it should be
by StefDiam on 2018/05/17 20:02
Can't sign in to save your mixes from one device to another. Very archaic in that sense. A person works hard to create what they deem as little masterpieces and it's all gone when the phone leaves you. Should be able to sign in. Can't adjust the volume of each sound without the complete sound needing to be turned off first then back on again to which the volume appears then disappears fast. Over all great experience. Possibly too nice only to find its short lived and proprietary to that device. I just can fully commit my love and heart to apps that don't let you sign in so they can save your time and effort for a lifetime. I'm really sick of starting over my entire mix library. I now rarely use the app because it's caused me commitment issues because it's only a matter of time what you must say goodbye to all your hard work for you now want to upgrade ur phone and now you will have to restart all over. No thanks, thus timing is timing one can never get back and it's meticulous adjust every sound to the right mediation. You really never wanna do it again nor can you remotely remember the million matriculations it took to get the mix. All hard work inevitably down the drain in time. I hate that :(
My favorite app. BUY IT!!

Baby Crack
by jennyefisher on 2018/10/24 05:42
We call this app baby crack because it has literally knocked out my two of my three kids when they are newborn and to one years old. It continues to work. I say two out of three only because I didn't have this app with my first. I used it to put my third newborn to sleep second day in the hospital so the photographer could take his picture and like magic it worked! The photographer was shocked. It became a conversation starter when walking through the store with it playing people asked me if there was water running? Lol I suggest different levels of rain, ocean waves, slow waves, and maybe the orchestra or melody. My husband and I also sleep with the sounds at night. I love this app and its definitely worth the money for the extra sounds and the app running in the background while you are in another app. Especially us momma's who multi-task. As I write this my little one is actually falling asleep to the sounds next to me. Don't be a cotton headed ninny muggin' and buy the app. 😜
Too bad...this used to be great!
by Peamer on 2018/05/05 17:29
My follow up to original review... Continues to be my most used app, but I'm getting discouraged. They've loaded up too much junk on system making it hard to navigate. Frustrated with nit being able to run my playlists with the sounds! If you run this app over your playlist, you get combined volume control, unlike the app music feature where you can set your music volume and your soothing noises volumes separately. There are too many little things going whacky. Too many crashes. Too many bugs. Recently, turned on app and found new format—and the auto upgrade deleted my music! They’ve never figured out that, if someone is a serious user, the music list will be long. Having no way to save the music, having to reinstall all after a crash or upgrade is just all wrong!!! I'm looking for something new and more user friendly. First review: My most used app. Use it for daily relaxation and night time sound block. Wish there were more sounds to choose from. Wish there were sound controls on each page rather than having to return to Home page. Also wish volume control was separate from iTunes content cuz I often run water sounds or brown noise under soothing tunes.
Excellent.
by lxybar on 2018/01/14 16:14
Use it for things I never thought I would. I used to wake up in the middle of the night and have trouble going down again. Use relaxing noises and combine with a binaural and I'm down before I know it - maybe it just helps me relax but who cares why it works. Also use it to read when focus is required on the always busy NYC subway. Binaural for concentration drowns out details of people's voices and lets me 'hear myself think'. I almost feel like I come up with ideas more when hearing that binaural - but maybe that's BS. Anyway, I'd hate to complain about too many options, but who can go through all these sounds to find out what they all do? I like that I don’t have to because I can save my favorite combinations. I haven’t done much with the meditation as I have other apps for that but it’s nice that they have that option.
Loved it but...update 😡
by Paleofemme on 2018/05/24 04:11
I am so upset. I’ve been using the free app for years, then finally, a couple months ago I purched this in a bundle. LOVED it. But since the update a week ago, my favorites are gone, all the meditations that I loved are now requiring subscriptions (and if the developer thinks I’m gonna pay monthly for their app they’re insane.) I understand needing to make money, but subscriptions are a waste of money. I paid for this app, and I want it back the way it was. ***in response to developer’s response: you did not read my review. I had many of the meditations - for over a month - and all of my favorite mixes were saved, but with the update that all changed. I do not see how this has anything to do with subscribing. Yes, I get that you want me to subscribe to get the meditations now, but it didn’t used to be this way, and I am upset. I hesitate to even say this, cuz you’ll probably change it, but with another app in your bundle I still have access to many of the meditations, and my favorites are still there, just like this app used to be; I purchased it at the same time I purchased this app and I am not subscribed to it. So, something isn’t adding up.
Multi Purpose
by DJ Rylan on 2017/05/10 05:51
Guaranteed to help you sleep, relax, concentrate, etc. Whatever it is you need, this app can help further that. I have an extremely hard time sleeping and settling down before bed but this app offers lots of sounds to accommodate my mood and gets me relaxed before falling asleep. The isochronic tones help increase a better more comfortable deep sleep for me. I noticed change in my sleep within the first use. Just choose the best sounds for you. Choose a selection that won't irritate you after too long and make sure to adjust volume and use the isochronic tones offered. Definitely will to help. Helped me majorly. I don't go to bed anymore without using my sounds. It's become a helpful habit. Also good for concentration during homework or sluggish days.
The original and best
by Deborah Terreson on 2018/07/27 04:44
I had just recently updated to a new phone and ended up somehow getting the more social media’d version. Eeep. Imagine my dismay , but then I remembered to check my iTunes purchase receipts and lo, there it was.. from all those years ago (2012). This version, stripped of the add-ons for sharing every mix, is perfect. As a sleep app, the sounds are capable of being blended to make the perfect audio sleep environment tailorwd for your personal tastes. The UI is freshened up and the binaural tones a nice addition. More than anything, it is a stanble, fully matured app and presents as such. I have used this for work and sleep since I bought it 6 years ago and in that time it hasn’t gotten old. Thanks for making such a great app/program.
Used to Love this app...
by MizzDiva08 on 2020/03/19 06:18
Updated review: I used to love this app and use it every night, but when I got a new iPhone and I had to reset this app. It’s absolutely horrible now. None of the sounds that I’ve repeatedly made save, NEVER. Once the app closes, I have to recreate every single sound. Also, if you paid for premium to get the meditations back in the day, DONT UPDATE THE APP! They now make meditations only available for subscription, which is a total rip off, when you’ve already paid for the premium version of the app. Overall, you’d probably be best looking elsewhere. Original Review: I love this app, it has essentially every sound you can think of, that's relaxing and soothing. I can't sleep without it. You can set an alarm on it, so it goes off on its own or set an alarm for it to turn on. Either way, if you're an individual that likes to sleep to nature-like/relaxing/zen-like/soothing sounds, this app is for you!
Addicted
by Meahuna on 2018/02/21 05:09
I've been using this app for years now & would not want to do without it. At home it helps me tune out my husband's snoring and the noise the pets make during the night. It's even more necessary when I travel--blocking out all the strange noises in hotel rooms. I knew I couldn't live without when I travel but didn't realize how much I've come to depend on it daily. It got buggy with a recent update & would crash every time I hit play. My husband put in some white noise from a different app that he has, but it wasn't a rich enough sound to mask that of his snoring, and I ended up not getting much good sleep. The next day I reinstalled the app & it's back to working wonderfully to give me a good night's sleep. Love it!
great app, worth the money
by R.z. Lynn on 2017/08/18 02:09
I originally downloaded the free version of this app back when I had an iphone 3G, so about 6 years ago. I used it very frequently and loved all the sounds it came with. Eventually, I decided to upgrade to the paid version and it was worth it. I've been using this app for over 5 years now. Beautiful sounds, and I love that the timer feature can automatically stop the sounds so I dont have to worry about wasting my battery. I love being able to listen to the isochronic tones without the headphones, so I can still get the relaxing soundwaves without worrying about falling asleep with headphones on. The app interface is beautiful, and the app overall is wonderful.
Paid years ago now crashing after iOS update
by NaNo Writer on 2020/11/26 09:17
Devastated that this app I paid for years ago and have loved so much is now crashing instantly when I try to open it; this happened immediately after the iOS 14.2 update. I’m devastated because I don’t have the cash to drop on an annual subscription for the other version of the app and I don’t want or need all the bells and whistles of the other app version. I’m very upset with this and feel like the developer is trying to push users away from what used to make Relax Melodies great - simplicity and affordability. I just want my sleep sounds back. I can’t even migrate my mixes from this app to the other one - that’s absolutely unacceptable in my book. I paid for those mixes I made when I paid for this version of the app; I don’t want to lose them or have to pay for a subscription to be able to remake them. Very upset with the developers over these shenanigans!
Absolutely LOVE this app!!
by csnicho2 on 2018/05/31 15:38
I use this twice daily for my meditation. I love the "fade in" and "fade out" features as well as the "stop sounds" feature. This allows me to have a gentle, soft alarm fade in at the end of meditation and then play for a couple of minutes while I "come back up". Then, the music fades out & stops when it is time for me to open my eyes. Could not be a more perfect app for doing meditation! Also I love that they keep adding new sounds. The new "Sweet Hour Prayer" is absolutely beautiful!! I am updating this review to check out to new sounds which I am anxious to hear and I’m sure will be beautiful. This is several years later and I still love this app and could not do without it!
Awesome MUST HAVE app!!!
by Skylander#1 on 2018/06/06 10:29
This app has been a QUALITY OF LIFE SAVER for me!!! I use it fo background sounds so my misophonia (hatred of sounds) doesn’t get triggered when I’m out running errands or simply hanging with friends... I can’t leave home without it as my misophonia is that bad (AGAIN, BIG TIME QUALITY OF LIFE SAVER!!!); I even used it to calm my ULTRA SCARED OF LITERALLY EVERYTHING AND EVERYBODY cat at the vet’s (😺👍 the app gets two furry thumbs up from her too); I use it to sleep at night or on planes(works like a charm); and I’ll be using it as sound effects in iMovie in the future!!! I use this app so much that I put it on all of my devices and have already recommended it to a ton of people and plan on recommending it to even more!!
Excellent app, subscription thing is weird
by Catclizm on 2018/08/27 20:47
Update: Still love the app as a white noise aid, but the push for the subscription stuff is kind of off-putting, especially since I’ve already paid for the app itself. Is the base app free now, or something? I’m pretty sure it hasn’t taken away access to any of my sounds, but sometimes the phrasing makes it seem like it has or will? Mostly seems like it’s for the mediation access, which I don’t use. But the interface & sample collection is still nice! ————— I love this app. It has a nice mix of sounds & definitely helps me sleep. Very soothing. I do kind of wish it had a better interface for adjusting the volume for the individual sounds, but it's otherwise fantastic.
Helps Concentration
by HappyGradStudent87 on 2018/06/07 11:19
This app is amazing! I occasionally use various sounds for white noise when I sleep, but primarily I use it as a concentration aid when studying for my classes in graduate school (I'm working toward a PhD). The binaural beats are fantastic - it's incredible to see how much easier it is to focus and how much more I can remember when I study with this app than when I study without it. However, I took one star off because every time the app updates it deletes every combination of sounds that I’ve created. It’s really frustrating to have to recreate them. Update: I deleted the app and re-downloaded it, and it’s no longer deleting my mixes!
My favorite sleep app, BUT..
by ABamaBelle on 2018/07/25 03:38
It just needs an alarm clock to be added! That is my only gripe, that I want to be able to use it to fall asleep to at night, but there's only a timer/alarm setting, which the longest time is just 2 hrs! PLEASE PLEASE make it so I can customize it to alarm when it's time to get up for work! I would be SO happy!! This would be the BEST sleep app hands down, in my opinion, but unfortunately only good for a nap, which I'm too busy to ever have time to nap! UPDATE: OMG.. my dream has finally come true!! Thank you so much to the devs for the update with the alarm and clock added!! This is now the BEST in my opinion! The only trouble I'm having is that I can't figure out if there's a way to switch to the 12hr clock format rather than 24hr (ie: military time). Maybe I'm just a dummy, and the option is there somewhere, so if anyone knows, PLEASE clue me in! I love the update! Thank you, developers, thank you so much for this awesome app!! To me, this is SO worth the $3.99 price tag! P.S. I also preferred the old icon with the moon, but it's all good!
Soothing & versatile. Great quality.
by Arkelanor on 2018/06/25 22:15
About the updated version: if the bug is making the app crash, just erase it and download it again. It won't affect your paid status and will work without a glitch. Great updates. The graphics and navigation is better. The quality of the sounds is top notch and the variety makes it really versatile. I got it for my baby and use it for me also. The mixes transform any room in a different environment, feel outdoors, or in a meditative mood, day or night. It's great. Awesome for meditation and helping to sleep. No complains. Agree with having more packages for purchase as a good idea.
“Sound” purchase, am satisfied
by {Piper} on 2018/01/17 13:02
I am very happy with the options available on this app. The interface of choosing them is visually good, with the golden icons with symbols, but a couple of suggestions: 1- when a sound is chosen, the icon changes from golden to yellow. That slight contrast is too subtle when searching it out to discontinue that sound. 2- it would be nice to have a listing of running sounds, to avoid scrolling all icons to find the one you want to alter or discontinue. ( which, honestly may exist and I just haven’t found it?) The selection of sounds is nicely varied and I have found options I like very much, and having the option to mix them is great. Overall, I am satisfied with the app and I would recommend it
Love it!
by CPR115 on 2018/05/04 04:35
I love that I can change my sound combinations & configurations, down to volume of each sound component! I use it every single night to go to sleep. I've used it to relax on plane rides. Even to power nap over lunch or while getting a massage. At night, I turn it on and set the timer for an hour. Never once have I made it through the entire hour before falling fast asleep. I love the binary options, but it's a bit odd when not using with headphones as you can hear the ticking. Other than that, I swear I couldn't live without it at this point. Even helps my brain drown out the hubby's horrific snoring!
Still love it
by Chrish62704 on 2018/05/10 06:38
I’ve used this app every night for years. I used it in the bush to sleep through constant jets taking off when I was on base. Now, I use it at home, my family enjoys the sound as well. If you have tinnitus, this is the perfect app to keep the ringing out at night. I would the sound of being on an airplane. I use the app [Rain Rain] with this one because of this option, it’s almost like white noise with more base. I’ve tried adjusting the base with the iPhone’s EQ, speakers, etc., but it gets annoying to turn it off and on daily when you use the app for years. All in all, 5 stars.
Best sleep app EVER
by Jean3ll3 on 2018/11/14 14:17
I've tried every sleep sounds app there is and this is by far the best! There are so so many sounds to choose from. You can play 1-12 at a time and change the volume of each one so if you want to hear a little less of one sound and more of another you can. You can customize it to be the best for you. It also has the binaural beats and isochronic tones, which don't require headphones. There's even guided meditations. You can also put it on clock mode to see the time while it's playing, and you can dim it also. This is the app I go to when I can't sleep. The BEST!!!
Relaxing Melodies that help to ease the stress.
by Spiegelbe on 2018/05/15 02:53
I struggle getting to sleep an nights because of the never ending conscious stream of thought running through my brain. This app has helped me create my own personal sounds to help me quiet the thought, replacing that noise with sounds of peace. I use the timer to make sure whatever soothing sound I mix together stays playin for most of the night. Not too loud, but loud enough to keep my brain from straying. There are plenty of ‘white noise’ or ‘meditation’ types of apps available. I be looked at several but found this one to have a great selection of stand a line sounds that can be mixed together for your personal lullaby.
Great Way to Find Calm
by danabear719 on 2017/09/25 07:28
This app helps me so much by making it easy to tailor the exact sound I need to relax in a variety of situations. It has the most amazing sound choices and i love that you can vary the volumes in the mixes that you build... in fact I love that you can build mixes! I love the alarm and the count down so you can wake up to something not jarring or have it turn off automatically. If I could change one thing, I would give options on how to organize the sounds so you can group them in ways that make locating the exact sound easier... rain with rain or all the melodies together etc. Maybe include a search function.
Babies and Animal Cargivers
by Tricia.Haenchen on 2019/11/12 16:10
This is an amazing tool to help children fall asleep. This also I have used to help an animal and a child in pain when nothing more can be done or given to them. Had a child that the parents wouldn’t allow me to administer any medication to them and she was teething painfully so the relaxation pulsation option helped a ton! Also am caring for a old, medicated cat and he loves the relation option, helps him deal with the pain!!! Amazing stuff, truly I thank you! But one thing, to your marketing team, why isn’t this advertised and brought to the attention of the public, these benefits??!!??
This App Is Worth Getting the Paid Version
by HilndLord on 2018/08/06 01:07
Like many others have indicated, this has been a good app for relaxation and sleep. It was good enough that I purchased the full version. Then it got cluttered and begging for more money when I had already paid for it. I will continue to use it, but I'm done paying for it. Good in its basic format. UPDATE: Whatever the glitch was, it got fixed. The paid version now gives me total access without any additional $ going out. Because of that I’m upgrading my review. This app does what it advertises and is well worth getting the paid app.
Excellent App!
by jules19310 on 2017/05/10 20:50
This app is excellent, very well done. I use it mostly as a sound machine during the day, and I love the number and variety of sounds. I especially love the fact that you can mix them together. The main sounds, like thunder, ocean, rain, cavern, wind, etc., are excellent, but it also has many unique layering sounds, like playground, voices, medieval, grandfather clock, etc., which can be mixed, at a low volume, with the main sounds to mask daytime noises. I have many sound machines placed around my house, and I buy all the sound apps I can find, and this one is at the top of the list.
loooovee this app!
by Juanitarob on 2018/06/14 04:21
i originally had the free version but it didn't allow you to listen to the sounds if you closed the app or shut the screen, so i just went ahead and bought the upgrade. I'm so happy i did because i use some of the sounds to meditate but mostly to help me fall asleep, and i've noticed that when i use it I fall asleep faster and go into a deeper sleep. i also like this app because it has sooooo many choices for sounds, and you have so many options to customize it like how loud one noise is or having custom sounds preset. get it!!!
This used to be wonderful. Then it became a subscription.
by ThatDamnHoney on 2018/08/14 10:00
I have been a loyal user for years, having purchased many of their apps in a bundle and individually years ago. I stopped using for a couple of months only to come back with the meditations taken away except for two. You could've at least kept the existing meditations for those who already paid for your app. Now you want us to use an app that is already paid for AND subscribe? You should've created NEW meditations for your subscription service, not revoke the items from your paid customers. I'm so disappointed in you, and I see I'm not the only one. I definitely won't be subscribing due to how you treat customers that supported you by buying your apps.
Great
by Schteff525 on 2018/06/13 02:30
I downloaded the free version to try it out and loved it so much I decided to buy it. There are plenty of sounds to choose from and I love how you can make and save your own mix. I use this app mainly to rock my son to sleep, but it helps me relax too. Some nights I have a hard time falling asleep so I put my own sounds on and I love the fact that it has a timer so it doesn't play all night. I had my mom download it as well when she told me her sound machine died and she loves it too. Update: I’ve had this app for a few years now and I still use it nightly. I love it!
So Perfect

You can weave whatever sounds, melodies, or white noises you want. You can adjust the volume on all the noises you wish to combine, prioritizing some over others. With the paid version, you get more noises, the ability to use things from your music library, guided meditations, and save files that allow you to pick your favorite creations automatically. This app is perfect for concentration, meditation, exercise and pain management, relaxation, and sleep. Craft your own surroundings, your own atmosphere! I highly recommend the full version purpose.
One of the best apps I've purchased.
by that-artsy-ch1ck on 2018/03/29 02:01
I used the free version of this app for a long while before finally deciding to upgrade to this, having completely fallen in love with the free format. This version, (for $2.99, I think it was?), gives you a remarkable variety of sounds to choose from, several guided meditations, (a definite plus, was not expecting to get so much more with the purchase), and a variety of binaural beats. You can mix your own sounds from the menu to create your own unique one, which you can then save to your favorites. Or, you can choose to listen to some preset favorites. Either way, it's an incredibly soothing experience. I decided to upgrade because I was having trouble sleeping and dealing with my anxiety, and since I started listening to this app (which can run in the background of your iOS), I have definitely become more relaxed than I was. This is probably the best app from these makers. Very satisfied.
Works Like a Charm
by M-the-B on 2017/09/23 13:03
Makes mornings and "can't be distracted work" work like a charm. Only wish you could still mix & match multiple binaurals and isochronics. STILL USING IT A YEAR AND A HALF AFTER I WROTE WHAT FOLLOWS: I use it a lot. Binaurals help with transition from wake-up to coffee and calm me while cooking. Ambient music/sounds coupled with binaurals work well as a noise filter and are really nice for timing computer sessions. Even use it to aid students' ability to settle into receptive mental states for movement work and pre-Butoh exercises. This last is what got me to upgrade from the free version, which is pretty terrific on its own.
Still needs work
by CaineZephyr on 2018/05/14 04:53
I want to give this app more stars because I use it so often but pairing poor layout now that there are so many sounds (but don't take them away, if anything add more) and the issue of charging subscriptions on a paid app keeps me from doing that. I can't stand subscription apps. The only thing I feel is worth a subscription is Netflix and that is because it is cheaper than cable. I love the additions to the app otherwise but it needs a drop down menu or something where you can go to pages of sounds, meditations, music player, or the beats. That way you don't have to go through so many pages to find what you want. Still one of the best sleep apps, but nothing should ever be completely finished with apps, there is always room for improvement. Update: The layout is a little better but the update was mostly about design to me. So, I am not sure the update was worth the wait. I am still hoping for some more soothing low hertz melodies, flutes and high hertz sounds wake me up or at least get irritating.
Great app for study time and evening routines!
by Rep3988 on 2020/06/19 03:47
I've been using this app for almost ten years. The binaural beats work quite well for me. I use this to get into the zone for writing and reading. I have a preset combination of music with binaural beats humming in the background. You can even play your own music and add the binaural frequencies underneath. A few minutes of listening and I'm in the zone for the long haul. Try it. It's worth checking out. I also use it to unwind at night when I’m reading in bed. It’s peaceful. I even use the guided meditations for relaxation before sleeping.
The BEST ritual
by meshanklin on 2018/12/19 02:16
I use this app almost every night. I turn it on, open my book, and I’m asleep before the timer dims the sound. I’ve been using this app for a few years now... it never gets old. I mean, how does the sound of the ocean and peepers get old? I recommend it to all my friends. Always HIGHLY recommended! Also, I spent money to upgrade and it was somewhat worth it. I do think the developers should allow their basic listeners to try out the new sounds or they should be able to add sounds as they wish for .99 - just a thought!
Worth the purchase!
by JaeMerf on 2018/07/12 17:50
I love that you can mix so many beats at once. I like that there are also binaural beats too for sleep concentration etc. And you can also add these binaural beats and or sounds to your own music within the app too! Definitely do some exploring due to the fact that there are so many sounds. But definitely worth it! For real. Helped me through many panic attacks and sleepless nights. I always have a fan on at home, but if I'm traveling I can just use this app and it works just as well! Has a timer and alarm built in! LOVE IT! 👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿❤️❤️❤️
Proud to one of the firsts
by orcanson on 2017/08/17 08:39
I think if I look up my earlier records I think I can go back 6 to 8 years - I do remember a promotional and if I truly appreciated the app the I was invited to purchase a version without advertisements. I have been following your work ever since - I think I even got a version where there was a holiday theme but I could be wrong - I think it went away when my 3rd gen iPod gave out. Either way your app has helped me get to sleep and drown out the outside when I want to just enjoy a book and pretend to be by a quiet stream and wind chimes.
Everyday useful for the tech-tard!
by Everyday(night) User on 2018/07/03 04:29
I use this every night and on weekends dying afternoon naps. I’m not sure I really could sleep without it at this point! I mis up my evening mixes regularly, but I still use it every night! I give it 4 stars instead of 5, just for the mere fact that I haven’t really explored all the fun features of the app, meaning my review isn’t truly about the entire app. I’m kinda tech-tarded and I’m able to use this app without going too deep into all of its cool bells and whistles, and that’s just how I love it! So 5 Stars really, but 4 because I know there’s other parts that I don’t know about. Sincerely, Everyday User
100% recommend
by Domino0504 on 2018/05/07 03:05
I’ve been using this app forever and I use it every night to go to bed and I just need it. This app has helped my hearing because I used to hate when it would rain and I would have to put in earplugs but now since I listen to this I really love the sound of rain because of this app. It truly helps me fall asleep every night and i really love how it can exit the app after awhile. One thing I would fix is to make the rain sounds more realistic because they kind of sound like a shower but that’s really it.
So soothing
by prokal on 2017/09/06 04:39
I absolutely love Relax Melodies!! I've tried many of the other apps that are available, but a lot of them have strange sound loops, irritating preset combinations, or just lack variety. Relax Melodies has several individual melodies(most I've seen of any app) to pick from, and you can create your own unique blend of sounds. Ever wanted to hear ocean waves gently caress the shore while listening to monks chant with a dryer in the background? Now you can. This app has saved me from many sleepless nights and it keeps getting better with each update.
ABSOLUTELY SUPERB!!! 👍 5+ Stars
by Only1Risa on 2018/06/09 05:57
I absolutely LOVE this app (and the Oriental one)! It's one of my most favorite apps, and I use it ALL THE TIME!!!! I've created some of the most beautiful mixes/sounds! The possibilities are endlessly amazing! Sometimes I'll meditate and listen to them, directly in my ears, through noise cancelling headphones/earplugs or I'll play them through my Bose system, for the entire room or space. It's just so awesome and peaceful, and it creates such a BEAUTIFUL ambiance! Relax Melodies and Relax Melodies Oriental (both, premium) are truly must-have apps! Great job, IpnosSoft! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! 😊❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️✨
Great for ASD, Anxiety, & Sensory Processing Disorders
by TypesetJez on 2018/05/07 05:02
I tried this app as a white noise app because it was highly rated and offered a lot more customization and variety than others. I have Asperger's and a sensory processing disorder and needed comforting noise to help me fall asleep and to focus during anxious situations. This app has been incredibly helpful with both, and I've even started some of the meditation samples and found them interesting. Highly recommended for anyone with ASD or SPD, but also for anyone who just needs to relax a little, and really, who doesn't?
Used to be a 5
by Glee Fan 5 on 2018/05/24 13:28
I would have put a 5 ad this is my favorite noise app. However, they did an update where you think you are saving a mix and a timer, but if you close the app it doesn’t actually save and you have to start over again. Go back to the way it was before please, I’m tired of having to do a new mix every night. Update: It saves initially, but as soon as you close the app, it’s no longer in the saved section. Tried saving multiple times the way you said. Wouldn’t save. Tried it being in the background longer. Same issue. Was never an issue until the last big update.
Been a fan for years.
by dmgabe on 2018/07/05 03:53
Been a big fan since the early days on the Mac. Very relaxing with lots of options to get everything perfect for your particular tastes. Also love the meditation content. Update: Still loving the app but am concerned about the extremely slow pace of updates and the fact that the community melodies seems to be a dead feature not long after they introduced it. Really hoping it doesn’t go the way of their Mac app which has been abandoned for quite some time now. In its current state, still works fine with iOS 11.2 always keep my fingers crossed that the next iOS update doesn’t kill it. Obviously not updated to support the iPhone X. Use it nightly on my iPad and it is definitely a batter hog but that’s only a problem on nights I forget to plug it in. Glad to see the latest release. It has renewed my faith that the product will live on.
Tranquil in Texas
by Friendswood Mom on 2018/05/07 01:21
I really enjoy creating my own soothing sounds to which I can fall asleep and awaken. My only complaint would be that each individual sound does not have a long enough runtime before it replays. This leads to very repetitive sounds. I can't fall asleep or stay asleep without my favorite brown noise to drown out ambient noises. Using guided meditations is one of my 2017 resolutions and the app upgrade makes it so easy. 6May18- still loving the app and the recent upgrade. Still trying to get used to he new interface, but enjoy the new sounds and the staff mixes are really good
What happened??
by JohnEmotions on 2018/05/03 07:20
I use this app daily because I can customize it so much. I'd give it 5 stars except that it does crash once in awhile, and the UI could be improved. Otherwise, one of my favorite apps. The new (May 2015) spoken word stuff was a good idea - nice addition. Update (July 19, 2015) Had to drop it to two stars because they added a bright red "upgrade" button that crowds the interface, screws up the UX and seems impossible to get rid of ... Even though I actually paid for the app months ago. Bad UI and the whole bait-and-switch with the ads/paid upgrades for an app that was originally purchased outright is unethical and stupid. January 2017 Interface is much-improved, but still a little counter-intuitive as all of the buttons don't fit across the bottom, forcing you to figure out to slide the lower navbar. Other than that, the product has evolved nicely. I dig the new meditations. The voice and audio quality are top notch.
Changing from + to -to...
by Shebearcub on 2018/05/12 10:53
I Paid for the premium app because I was happy with the free one, and thought it was a good deal for a couple dollars. I was happy with it until they added a bunch of unrelated content and asked for a subscription fee. They would have done far better making the new content into its own app and trusting its previously happy customers to try it They added a few new sounds and a more useful bedtime timer to help you with keeping on schedule. I am still a bit annoyed with the subscription aspect but happy overall with the basic functions and sounds available.

Paid years ago now crashing after iOS update
by NaNo Writer on 2020/11/26 09:17
Devastated that this app I paid for years ago and have loved so much is now crashing instantly when I try to open it; this happened immediately after the iOS 14.2 update. I’m devastated because I don’t have the cash to drop on an annual subscription for the other version of the app and I don’t want or need all the bells and whistles of the other app version. I’m very upset with this and feel like the developer is trying to push users away from what used to make Relax Melodies great - simplicity and affordability. I just want my sleep sounds back. I can’t even migrate my mixes from this app to the other one - that’s absolutely unacceptable in my book. I paid for those mixes I made when I paid for this version of the app; I don’t want to lose them or have to pay for a subscription to be able to remake them. Very upset with the developers over these shenanigans!
Won’t open after 14.2 update
by bigmodernmess on 2020/11/25 08:10
I used this app to fall asleep, and it was wonderful. Paid for the full app a few years ago and it was worth every penny. However it stopped working after the 14.2 update. If the other reviews are true, that this is a way to force people into a subscription, then I am very disappointed with this developer for not removing the app and being clear about their intentions. I will not buy another app from Ipnos.
Used to be great
by BksFnst06 on 2020/11/24 09:04
I don’t know what the developers did, but my mixes no longer save. I have saved the same mix 3-4 times and every time I open the app back up, there are no mixes saved. I guess I have to find something else until that glitch is fixed. I’m kinda bummed, man.
Nice
by Future NowHere on 2020/11/21 21:42
Love it. Using it for years. The best. Even nicer now. Only problem is it stops playing sometimes :/
Won’t open after update
by BACollins on 2020/11/20 15:59
I adored this app and used it everyday. My phone automatically updated to iOS 14.2, and now the app won’t open. I paid for this app years ago to be able to access all of the sounds, and now it seems that I’m pushed to use the other Relax Melodies app and pay for the subscription. Very disappointing. Please help! I also am not able to listen to other music or audiobooks while the new Relax Melodies app plays. This was a huge convenience at one point. As someone with misophonia, this app was a life saver. Not anymore. Please help those of us who paid for this app and have been using it for years access these benefits again!
I paid for this and it no longer will even open
by EmilyMoby on 2020/11/19 06:04
I’ve been using this app for years. I paid for whatever paid version they had at the time, long before it was $60 a year, and now I guess they don’t want to support this app anymore... It’s been getting worse the past couple iOS updates—it randomly shuts off if I open another app but not consistently so it’s not like it acts the same for each app each time. And now it won’t open at all. And on top of that, the “app support” page doesn’t allow you to contact support directly. I tried, but could not find a way to contact support. Do not pay for this and definitely do not pay $60 a year for their other version when you don’t even have a way to contact them when the app suddenly decides to stop working altogether.
Because it's a great app
by SJdara on 2020/11/16 08:48
**** my phone updated yesterday and now the app keeps crashing! I paid for the FULL version of this app back in 2014. Please help You should definitely download this app it has amazing sound and I can't get to sleep without it. Even my children love this app.
Very dissapomired
by AndrewJGale on 2020/11/15 06:58
I have used this app for years. Since the 14.2 update, the all will not load. It seems this is their underhanded method of pushing users to their subscription based app.
Doesn’t Work
by Mayflower04 on 2020/11/14 06:06
Ever since the last iPhone update, this app no longer works. Super upsetting. I’ve been with this app for a long time, and it’s helped me fall asleep many a night. Loved the variety. Super disappointed in what the developer has done. Please fix it for poor insomniacs who can’t afford subscriptions.
App no longer works
by pfethlia on 2020/11/10 00:52
They released a new version that they want you to pay $60 a year for and now the old app suddenly doesn't work.
Keeps Crashing
by AF_Wife27 on 2020/11/06 18:18
Ever since the iOS 14.2 update, this app refuses to launch and will immediately crash when I try to open it. I’m really bummed as we listen to the “rain on tent” every single night and it helps to drown out outside noises ☹️
Broken
by JediPro2 on 2020/11/05 03:57
I’ve been using this app for years. Now it will not let me listen to my mixes without ‘downloading’ every time. So instead of any kind of relaxation, I’m left with annoyance and frustration. Thank you for breaking your app.
Nice tool to help with relaxation
by karaoke_lola on 2020/11/05 02:06
Update: I can’t add my purchased music for some reason. That was the best feature. Taking a star away for that. Previous review: I’ve had the app for a while but recently started using it again after getting bored with The White Noise app. I like that music tones are included and that I can import my own music (switched to the pro version). The guided sleep meditations are nice. I haven’t used all the features but it’s a solid app. Definitely try the free version first but you will want to eventually upgrade.
Nice
by Taken12467890558458 on 2020/11/01 05:09
Different sounds available to help sleep or focus if needed. Helpful sounds to fall asleep. No other app is nearly as good.
The Best Sleep App Ever
by _samboni on 2020/10/22 02:55
The best sleep app and it’s even better than the “upgraded” version which is made by the same company.
Love the app, but what about spatial audio for AirPods etc
by Fukdepolice on 2020/09/23 04:44
I’ve been using this app for years now and I just saw the spatial audio feature with my headphones. I wish there was a way to put it on a windowsill and it sounds like it’s actually coming through the window.. just a thought
Mixes won’t save
by Wagszilla on 2020/09/06 13:12
This app has gone downhill, arguably purposefully to get people to subscribe to their new app/service, and mixes no longer save.
Power Nap Relaxation Master App
by Santiago24x7 on 2020/08/28 12:52
I use this app whenever I have difficulty sleeping to keep me relaxed thru the early morning hours and super helpful for relaxing during my occasional power naps. I have used this app for many years now and I am pleased with its functionality. I continue to turn to this app when I’m unable to find peace in my hectic days. It’s simple to use and offers powerful features.
Missing sounds from free version.
by TheAaronM80 on 2020/08/27 04:49
Great app to sleep with, unfortunately for me it feels incomplete since its missing a good portion of other sounds that I was looking forward to (ex: Orbit, Milky Way, etc) and since I paid $3 for this premium version. Feel a little short handed. App feels incomplete :/ If it just fixed this one thing I’d definitely bump this up to 5 stars. Until then guess I’ll also keep the free version just to keep certain sounds....bummer
Fantastic
by Piclimber on 2020/08/19 20:39
I love this app
Great app for study time and evening routines!
by Rep3988 on 2020/06/19 03:47
I've been using this app for almost ten years. The binaural beats work quite well for me. I use this to get into the zone for writing and reading. I have a preset combination of music with binaural beats humming in the background. You can even play your own music and add the binaural frequencies underneath. A few minutes of listening and I'm in the zone for the long haul. Try it. It's worth checking out. I also use it to unwind at night when I’m reading in bed. It’s peaceful. I even use the guided meditations for relaxation before sleeping.
Their just letting this app die
by Rhxurvsj on 2020/06/09 00:49
All the other lower rating reviews just getting lip service because they know they screwed people who purchased the app when they switched to subscription and tried to sweep everyone else who paid for the app under the rug. I’m sure they’ve all been told what bs to spout when their questioned. Seems like all their replies are the same trying to sound ignorant of what they are doing.
Take the time
by Angela Cherry on 2020/05/23 12:55
With the state of the world. This app is NEEDED. Take the time to give your mind, body, and soul a chance to relax and journey away for 10 mins a day. You would not believe the difference, if you took 10 uninterrupted mins. 10 mins to close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and let your mind and your body slip away and relax.
I love this app!
by Bludvamp on 2020/05/13 20:31
I've been using it for months, and it is one of my go-to insomnia solutions. Both the free and paid-for versions are fantastic. ETA: It just keeps getting better. They've added more sounds, more features, and it still works on my very old Mini.
Lay back and relax...
by NYToo on 2020/04/22 05:51
This app is wonderful. The interface is smooth and easy to navigate and there are so many options to choose from. It's great from trying to get to sleep or just take a moment to relax and clear your mind.
Used to love it
by Htshnaghji on 2020/04/17 14:51
I’ve had this app with a lifetime subscription for years and loved it until recently. I started using it on a new device not too long ago and have found that it has become incredibly buggy. It gets stuck on certain screens, crashes frequently, and will no longer let me add my own music which was one of my favorite features. It looks like there hasn’t been an update in a LONG time and the developer has completely stopped maintaining this app. Really disappointed.
Used to Love this app...
by MizzDiva08 on 2020/03/19 06:18
Updated review: I used to love this app and use it every night, but when I got a new iPhone and I had to reset this app. It’s absolutely horrible now. None of the sounds that I’ve repeatedly made save, NEVER. Once the app closes, I have to recreate every single sound. Also, if you paid for premium to get the meditations back in the day, DONT UPDATE THE APP! They now make meditations only available for subscription, which is a total rip off, when you’ve already paid for the premium version of the app. Overall, you’d probably be best looking elsewhere. Original Review: I love this app, it has essentially every sound you can think of, that's relaxing and soothing. I can't sleep without it. You can set an alarm on it, so it goes off on its own or set an alarm for it to turn on. Either way, if you're an individual that likes to sleep to nature-like/relaxing/zen-like/soothing sounds, this app is for you!
Feeling compelled to edit my review
by Apple Rocks Hard on 2020/03/19 02:06
So, three and a half years after my last review, and all I gotta say is this. To the developers of this classic app, thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart, for your most recent updates and changes. The subscription only content is still there, but it’s out of the way now, and pricing is much clearer and more obvious. Furthermore, all sounds are now free and pre-installed, from what I can tell. The interface is much, much easier to use, and VoiceOver accessibility is significantly improved for adjusting the volume of individual sounds in a mix. I absolutely adore the community mixes feature, and I would encourage anyone who uses this app to please share your mixes for me, and others, to enjoy. I’ve decided to edit my review and up my rating because honestly, after its most recent update, this app deserves all the love I can give it. I’m still not in any position to use the subscription based meditations, but that’s OK. I finally have all the sounds, and that’s all I ever wanted. May try the meditations someday, but I’m in no hurry. To the developers, thank you again for a great update.
Awesome
by Beth Bianchi on 2020/03/17 02:52
Great app
App Developers stopped maintaining the app
by Poopsosiekeoslslel on 2020/03/01 04:48
I wish I knew that this app was in the process of being completely abandoned before I bought it. One likes to think that the developers would do well to maintain and update such a popular app, maybe present it with exciting, new content.,.,,BUT INSTEAD OF DOING THAT .,:they more or less threw this one away, in favor of “new” app in which they now maintain, putting all of the exciting , new content AND THEN PROCEED TO PLACE IT ALL behind a paywall. I’m deleting this app and then I am buying both a calm app and headspace subscription out of spite.
Like the options
by Red Soulstress on 2020/02/21 15:43
I’ve had this app for a while and use it for a while then forget I have it for a few then use it again. I like all the options and that you can combine sounds to personalize your relaxation.
Disappointed

I purchased the subscription only because the meditations I was using went away. Then I realized all the meditations are basically the same. I requested a refund, but it was declined. The paid version doesn’t offer much and doesn’t seem to be worth the money.
Used to be my all time favorite app
by EP95123 on 2020/02/09 14:08
I don’t understand why this app was modified! Every time I launch it, I have to wait for it to “download “ my customized sounds. What’s the point of creating customized sounds if the app doesn’t save them now? Time to find a better app. This is a big disappointment.
Excellent
by Oscar Shorts Rock on 2020/02/01 04:42
Create your own mixture of the sounds that please you.
Great controls and sounds
by singerboyjn1 on 2020/01/30 01:58
I’ve had this app for years and I always make sure to redownload it when I get a new phone. The ability to adjust the levels of each sound is so ingenious. I hope that soon these apps are configured to run with Siri and Shortcuts; that would take it to a whole other level!
Changes are BAD
by SleeplessinSouthDakota on 2020/01/17 21:33
This had been my favorite app for years but the latest updates are annoying. So many sounds are no longer really downloaded and saved for a long period of time so every night I need to download them again but then it takes ages!
Has to re-download sounds constantly
by DaneGH on 2019/12/12 17:28
I like the sounds this produces, but every single night when I try to turn on “brown noise”, it has to re-download the sound for some reason, taking up to several minutes each time.
No more updates & support?
by SwnB on 2019/12/09 20:23
This was a paid pro version of the Relax Melodies app which years ago I gladly purchased because it was such an excellent app. Now, there's a (FAR more expensive) "premium" subscription option in the other version of the app, which you supported with a revamp and addition of more sounds. This app? You haven't even made any attempt at updating this one for over a year and worse, you replaced the "pro" label with a suspicious "P". This is a joke. Is this the way you treat your old loyal customers? To cease app updates and support to make us pay even more than we already did in order to access the new features? This is so disappointing.
Great app!!!

Awesome app works wonders helps me sleep
Awesome App
by W B-H on 2019/11/16 02:19
I love this app. So many features and sounds. I go to sleep easily with this; however, I wish it had airplay capabilities so I could cast it to my HomePod.
Babies and Animal Cargivers
by Tricia.Haenchen on 2019/11/12 16:10
This is an amazing tool to help children fall asleep. This also I have used to help an animal and a child in pain when nothing more can be done or given to them. Had a child that the parents wouldn’t allow me to administer any medication to them and she was teething painfully so the relaxation pulsation option helped a ton! Also am caring for a old, medicated cat and he loves the relation option, helps him deal with the pain!!! Amazing stuff, truly I thank you! But one thing, to your marketing team, why isn’t this advertised and brought to the attention of the public, these benefits??!!??
Sound apps
by Takal NY on 2019/10/30 10:32
Theres not enough free sounds. Also some sounds were once free and now they’re not. Lastly there’s not enough variety in the music of each of the sounds.. the music should repeat after maybe 5 min of the song or singing bowl or running water etc
Saving grace
by SPROGRESS on 2019/10/21 22:18
Epic melodies ... in this hectic world of IG, FB, ADHD, PTSD and social media in general, this app serves as an oasis. All I can say is THANK YOU!!!! (No they did not pay me for this review).
One of the best apps around
by Jennysheree on 2019/09/01 08:57
Highly recommend. Been using for a couple of years now. Overall this is my one and only sleep and meditation app. I recommend it to everyone I know. Keep up the good work!
Something happened
by T-man827 on 2019/08/29 03:26
Love the app but something happened that made it so that I can’t access some noises and I’m not sure how. It says I haven’t downloaded them but it’s clearly not the case since I’ve used them multiple times before. It’d be appreciated if you can look into it.
Best app ever.... when it works
by carliedanielle5 on 2019/08/09 06:00
I love this app and use it every night. I used the free app for a year before purchasing the bundle. Ever since purchasing.... my app shuts down when I open it. The app and my phone are both updated. (And yes... I’ve tried the old turn it off and on trick). Nothing works. I just want my app to work so I can sleep!!

Great app!

Love this app! I’ve been using it for a while now. Would love to be able to incorporate other music apps like amazon music, that would be awesome!!
Peaceful Sounds Peaceful Baby
by Somerville1968 on 2019/08/05 18:46
I play these sounds for my baby as she falls asleep. They help her fall asleep peacefully. Especially Tibetan bowls. That’s her fave.
Not saving mixes again
by NW554 on 2019/07/31 05:14
Soothing, life like sounds help me fall asleep every night. A lot to choose from too. Support helped with a simple fix! 5 ⭐️s Update: Not saving Mixes again!! Ugh! I don’t know why it keeps happening. Do I continually need to reinstall this app in order for it to work?!
DO NOT purchase!
by Nursemel1 on 2019/07/13 04:29
I cant believe you guys are still stealing people money! Shame on you guys! I purchased it because I used it all the time- don’t do it! Nothing different as they claim! It’s the same - and I did not need to spend $20!! Yes $20. I still don’t have access to over half of the sounds or meditations! I emailed the developer and they will not refund! They say I need to go through Apple. So I will try. Do not spend any money! The app is fine and works fine with out spending any money! Waste of $20!
Good
by c(O_o)3 on 2019/07/10 02:12
I’ve been using this for years, but over the last year I’ve been having repeated bugs and issues that I’ve been reporting. The feedback I get is to restart my phone (I’m not doing that every night), and other time consuming troubleshooting. Hey, how about just fix it?

by Siameezer on 2019/06/08 04:03
This ap is fabulous! It really helps me relax. Whenever I have trouble quieting my mind and falling asleep, Relax Melodies does the trick to put me in a tranquil state of mind. I highly recommend this ap.

It has helped me relax and lulled me to sleep. So glad I found it. Definitely recommended.
The best for getting to sleep

I love that I can layer sounds to create my own perfect sleep sound.
Used to be great...
by KatiKitsch on 2019/05/10 02:26
New version broke pink & brown noise, sounds I had been using to sleep with for years. Such a bummer.
Airplay could be a little easier to use
by TheIdeaCollective on 2019/04/27 12:08
Having to enable dock mode in settings and then selecting an airplay device outside of the app is a little cumbersome. Just add it as an option within the app. Solid app otherwise.

Huge variety of sounds for different needs
by NikkiD2020 on 2019/03/18 08:33
By far the largest menu of melodies and other sounds. Helps me tune out the noisy bachelor mockingbirds at night or just enjoy a trip to the beach.
Love it!

Its good

Most of the sounds i dont use but i love the way i can have multiple sounds at once.
Revised: money-grubbing subscription model ruins app
by chilaw2004 on 2019/03/10 18:48
OLD REVIEW: Huge variety of sounds, both natural and musical, and the ability to make custom mixes of just what you like make this program well worth it. We have a nature sounds generator from Brookstone that cost us well over $100 and it doesn't sound as good or have as much versatility. New review: Half of the sounds (mainly popular ones) that used to be free with the app but are now only available for an obnoxious subscription price? Is this supposed to be relaxing? No thanks.

Great App for Tinnutus Sufferers!
by rogue76 on 2019/02/13 04:58
Wonderful app that literally saved my sanity from an attack of tinnitus. With this app playing all day at work and as I slept at night, I learned to train myself to virtually ignore the tinnitus within two weeks. So thankful for this app!

Paid app with additional monthly fees..
by Harry sack on 2019/01/27 08:44
Can not believe that there are in app purchases in an app that I already paid for. After the updates from when I first got it, the guided meditation and cool features are now a monthly fee. Stupid. Greedy.
Great relaxation
by afrazier on 2019/01/25 04:10
I enjoy this app especially when I travel, I have to sleep with some kind of white noise and this app does the trick. However I can’t get the app to save my mixes, I have to pick them every time I open the app.
Enjoy this app

This app is so simple to use. The sound quality is fantastic. Best of all, it has something for everyone so I use it for myself and to get my kiddos to fall asleep.
Great App
by Piscesgirl55 on 2018/12/31 12:21
Easy to use - good variety of sounds - I use it every night to fall asleep! One can mix a variety of sounds to create a unique listening experience
Love it!
by Kewl-1 on 2018/12/31 05:34
I’ve had this app for several years and I still love it! It helps me sleep at night and stay asleep. Plus the new tinnitus relief meditation has really helped me. You can set timers for a quick 20 minute meditation at lunch or to energize yourself during a stressful day. I highly recommend this app. 💙💙

Large variety of sounds

I’ve had this app for a long time and I enjoy the variety of options and the customization you can do to create your ideal sound.
The BEST ritual
by meshanklin on 2018/12/19 02:16
I use this app almost every night. I turn it on, open my book, and I’m asleep before the timer dims the sound. I’ve been using this app for a few years now... it never gets old. I mean, how does the sound of the ocean and peepers get old? I recommend it to all my friends. Always HIGHLY recommended! Also, I spent money to upgrade and it was somewhat worth it. I do think the developers should allow their basic listeners to try out the new sounds or they should be able to add sounds as they wish for .99 - just a thought!
Loyal to Series
by duckiesaurus on 2018/12/18 05:01
I’ve been a fan of the series for a long number of years. The music, meditations, and ambient sounds help me get into a state of calm that is usually hard to attain throughout my busy workday so when I listen to the stuff on these apps I naturally fall asleep. Everything is super calming and if you’re emotional like me, you’d feel closer to these contents.

I didn't even need the extended version of this app but bought it because I loved it so much. Now that I have the paid version, i love it even more than i knew was possible!
My favorite app. BUY IT!!
by pokinatchapunx on 2018/12/13 08:34
I love this app and I use it every day. It has a huge selection of sounds that are very relaxing. The sounds are high quality & don't sound loopy, and the interface gives its users great control over mixing and matching their own preference of soundscapes. I love that. And you can save your favorite mixes. I also like that they continue to add new sounds & features with their updates, so the app just keeps expanding and getting better which is fairly rare for a lot of apps these days; they just do one thing, but this app keeps growing. So many things I love about this app. I highly recommend buying the premium version. It's totally worth it, it's a high quality app. It even has guided meditation now - sometimes the Alram clock will not work for me. yikes! That's dangerous, so I just stopped using the alarm feature, which is a bummer because they have really great, gentle sounds to wake up to. But on the upside, they updated the app to mute when the iOS alarm clock rings, and when u hit snooze, the app unmutes and continues your sounds. That's great. Buy this app. Worth it!
Great App
by piano4all2 on 2018/12/13 08:20
This app works great and I use it every night..... There are many choices of sounds which can be played together -- and you're able to control the volume of each sound separately... The iOS version also allows you to use your own music files and incorporate them into your relaxation mix... I'm not sure if the Android version has that capability though... Anyhow, I highly recommend this app... I've been using it for over 5 years now... Also, if you have deleted the app and want to reinstall it, your saved mixes come right back too... In addition, if you have more than 1 iOS device and use this app, your saved mixes automatically sync to each of your devices (as long as the Apple ID is the same for each device).
Feeling compelled to edit my review
by Apple Rocks Hard on 2020/03/19 02:06
So, three and a half years after my last review, and all I gotta say is this. To the developers of this classic app, thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart, for your most recent updates and changes. The subscription only content is still there, but it’s out of the way now, and pricing is much clearer and more obvious. Furthermore, all sounds are now free and pre-installed, from what I can tell. The interface is much, much easier to use, and VoiceOver accessibility is significantly improved for adjusting the volume of individual sounds in a mix. I absolutely adore the community mixes feature, and I would encourage anyone who uses this app to please share your mixes for me, and others, to enjoy. I’ve decided to edit my review and up my rating because honestly, after its most recent update, this app deserves all the love I can give it. I’m still not in any position to use the subscription based meditations, but that’s OK. I finally have all the sounds, and that’s all I ever wanted. May try the meditations someday, but I’m in no hurry. To the developers, thank you again for a great update.
Not as advanced as it should be
by StefDiam on 2018/05/17 20:02
Can't sign in to save your mixes from one device to another. Very archaic in that sense. A person works hard to create what they deem as little masterpieces and it's all gone when the phone leaves you. Should be able to sign in. Can't adjust the volume of each sound without the complete sound needing to be turned off first then back on again to which the volume appears then disappears fast. Over all great experience. Possibly too nice only to find its short lived and proprietary to that device. I just can fully commit my love and heart to apps that don't let you sign in so they can save your time and effort for a lifetime. I'm really sick of starting over my entire mix library. I now rarely use the app because it's caused me commitment issues because it's only a matter of time what you must say goodbye to all your hard work for you now want to upgrade ur phone and now you will have to restart all over. No thanks, thus timing is timing one can never get back and it's meticulous adjust every sound to the right mediation. You really never wanna do it again nor can you remotely remember the million matriculations it took to get the mix. All hard work inevitably down the drain in time. I hate that :(
My favorite app. BUY IT!!

Baby Crack
by jennyefisher on 2018/10/24 05:42
We call this app baby crack because it has literally knocked out my two of my three kids when they are newborn and to one years old. It continues to work. I say two out of three only because I didn't have this app with my first. I used it to put my third newborn to sleep second day in the hospital so the photographer could take his picture and like magic it worked! The photographer was shocked. It became a conversation starter when walking through the store with it playing people asked me if there was water running? Lol I suggest different levels of rain, ocean waves, slow waves, and maybe the orchestra or melody. My husband and I also sleep with the sounds at night. I love this app and its definitely worth the money for the extra sounds and the app running in the background while you are in another app. Especially us momma's who multi-task. As I write this my little one is actually falling asleep to the sounds next to me. Don't be a cotton headed ninny muggin' and buy the app. 😜
Too bad...this used to be great!
by Peamer on 2018/05/05 17:29
My follow up to original review... Continues to be my most used app, but I'm getting discouraged. They've loaded up too much junk on system making it hard to navigate. Frustrated with nit being able to run my playlists with the sounds! If you run this app over your playlist, you get combined volume control, unlike the app music feature where you can set your music volume and your soothing noises volumes separately. There are too many little things going whacky. Too many crashes. Too many bugs. Recently, turned on app and found new format—and the auto upgrade deleted my music! They’ve never figured out that, if someone is a serious user, the music list will be long. Having no way to save the music, having to reinstall all after a crash or upgrade is just all wrong!!! I'm looking for something new and more user friendly. First review: My most used app. Use it for daily relaxation and night time sound block. Wish there were more sounds to choose from. Wish there were sound controls on each page rather than having to return to Home page. Also wish volume control was separate from iTunes content cuz I often run water sounds or brown noise under soothing tunes.
Excellent.
by lxybar on 2018/01/14 16:14
Use it for things I never thought I would. I used to wake up in the middle of the night and have trouble going down again. Use relaxing noises and combine with a binaural and I'm down before I know it - maybe it just helps me relax but who cares why it works. Also use it to read when focus is required on the always busy NYC subway. Binaural for concentration drowns out details of people's voices and lets me 'hear myself think'. I almost feel like I come up with ideas more when hearing that binaural - but maybe that's BS. Anyway, I'd hate to complain about too many options, but who can go through all these sounds to find out what they all do? I like that I don’t have to because I can save my favorite combinations. I haven’t done much with the meditation as I have other apps for that but it’s nice that they have that option.
Loved it but...update 😡
by Paleofemme on 2018/05/24 04:11
I am so upset. I’ve been using the free app for years, then finally, a couple months ago I purched this in a bundle. LOVED it. But since the update a week ago, my favorites are gone, all the meditations that I loved are now requiring subscriptions (and if the developer thinks I’m gonna pay monthly for their app they’re insane.) I understand needing to make money, but subscriptions are a waste of money. I paid for this app, and I want it back the way it was. ***in response to developer’s response: you did not read my review. I had many of the meditations - for over a month - and all of my favorite mixes were saved, but with the update that all changed. I do not see how this has anything to do with subscribing. Yes, I get that you want me to subscribe to get the meditations now, but it didn’t used to be this way, and I am upset. I hesitate to even say this, cuz you’ll probably change it, but with another app in your bundle I still have access to many of the meditations, and my favorites are still there, just like this app used to be; I purchased it at the same time I purchased this app and I am not subscribed to it. So, something isn’t adding up.
Multi Purpose
by DJ Rylan on 2017/05/10 05:51
Guaranteed to help you sleep, relax, concentrate, etc. Whatever it is you need, this app can help further that. I have an extremely hard time sleeping and settling down before bed but this app offers lots of sounds to accommodate my mood and gets me relaxed before falling asleep. The isochronic tones help increase a better more comfortable deep sleep for me. I noticed change in my sleep within the first use. Just choose the best sounds for you. Choose a selection that won't irritate you after too long and make sure to adjust volume and use the isochronic tones offered. Definitely will to help. Helped me majorly. I don't go to bed anymore without using my sounds. It's become a helpful habit. Also good for concentration during homework or sluggish days.
The original and best
by Deborah Terreson on 2018/07/27 04:44
I had just recently updated to a new phone and ended up somehow getting the more social media’d version. Eeep. Imagine my dismay , but then I remembered to check my iTunes purchase receipts and lo, there it was.. from all those years ago (2012). This version, stripped of the add-ons for sharing every mix, is perfect. As a sleep app, the sounds are capable of being blended to make the perfect audio sleep environment tailorwd for your personal tastes. The UI is freshened up and the binaural tones a nice addition. More than anything, it is a stanble, fully matured app and presents as such. I have used this for work and sleep since I bought it 6 years ago and in that time it hasn’t gotten old. Thanks for making such a great app/program.
Used to Love this app...
by MizzDiva08 on 2020/03/19 06:18
Updated review: I used to love this app and use it every night, but when I got a new iPhone and I had to reset this app. It’s absolutely horrible now. None of the sounds that I’ve repeatedly made save, NEVER. Once the app closes, I have to recreate every single sound. Also, if you paid for premium to get the meditations back in the day, DONT UPDATE THE APP! They now make meditations only available for subscription, which is a total rip off, when you’ve already paid for the premium version of the app. Overall, you’d probably be best looking elsewhere. Original Review: I love this app, it has essentially every sound you can think of, that's relaxing and soothing. I can't sleep without it. You can set an alarm on it, so it goes off on its own or set an alarm for it to turn on. Either way, if you're an individual that likes to sleep to nature-like/relaxing/zen-like/soothing sounds, this app is for you!
Addicted
by Meahuna on 2018/02/21 05:09
I've been using this app for years now & would not want to do without it. At home it helps me tune out my husband's snoring and the noise the pets make during the night. It's even more necessary when I travel--blocking out all the strange noises in hotel rooms. I knew I couldn't live without when I travel but didn't realize how much I've come to depend on it daily. It got buggy with a recent update & would crash every time I hit play. My husband put in some white noise from a different app that he has, but it wasn't a rich enough sound to mask that of his snoring, and I ended up not getting much good sleep. The next day I reinstalled the app & it's back to working wonderfully to give me a good night's sleep. Love it!
great app, worth the money
by R.z. Lynn on 2017/08/18 02:09
I originally downloaded the free version of this app back when I had an iphone 3G, so about 6 years ago. I used it very frequently and loved all the sounds it came with. Eventually, I decided to upgrade to the paid version and it was worth it. I've been using this app for over 5 years now. Beautiful sounds, and I love that the timer feature can automatically stop the sounds so I dont have to worry about wasting my battery. I love being able to listen to the isochronic tones without the headphones, so I can still get the relaxing soundwaves without worrying about falling asleep with headphones on. The app interface is beautiful, and the app overall is wonderful.
Paid years ago now crashing after iOS update
by NaNo Writer on 2020/11/26 09:17
Devastated that this app I paid for years ago and have loved so much is now crashing instantly when I try to open it; this happened immediately after the iOS 14.2 update. I’m devastated because I don’t have the cash to drop on an annual subscription for the other version of the app and I don’t want or need all the bells and whistles of the other app version. I’m very upset with this and feel like the developer is trying to push users away from what used to make Relax Melodies great - simplicity and affordability. I just want my sleep sounds back. I can’t even migrate my mixes from this app to the other one - that’s absolutely unacceptable in my book. I paid for those mixes I made when I paid for this version of the app; I don’t want to lose them or have to pay for a subscription to be able to remake them. Very upset with the developers over these shenanigans!
Absolutely LOVE this app!!
by csnicho2 on 2018/05/31 15:38
I use this twice daily for my meditation. I love the "fade in" and "fade out" features as well as the "stop sounds" feature. This allows me to have a gentle, soft alarm fade in at the end of meditation and then play for a couple of minutes while I "come back up". Then, the music fades out & stops when it is time for me to open my eyes. Could not be a more perfect app for doing meditation! Also I love that they keep adding new sounds. The new "Sweet Hour Prayer" is absolutely beautiful!! I am updating this review to check out to new sounds which I am anxious to hear and I’m sure will be beautiful. This is several years later and I still love this app and could not do without it!
Awesome MUST HAVE app!!!
by Skylander#1 on 2018/06/06 10:29
This app has been a QUALITY OF LIFE SAVER for me!!! I use it fo background sounds so my misophonia (hatred of sounds) doesn’t get triggered when I’m out running errands or simply hanging with friends... I can’t leave home without it as my misophonia is that bad (AGAIN, BIG TIME QUALITY OF LIFE SAVER!!!); I even used it to calm my ULTRA SCARED OF LITERALLY EVERYTHING AND EVERYBODY cat at the vet’s (😺👍 the app gets two furry thumbs up from her too); I use it to sleep at night or on planes(works like a charm); and I’ll be using it as sound effects in iMovie in the future!!! I use this app so much that I put it on all of my devices and have already recommended it to a ton of people and plan on recommending it to even more!!
Excellent app, subscription thing is weird
by Catclizm on 2018/08/27 20:47
Update: Still love the app as a white noise aid, but the push for the subscription stuff is kind of off-putting, especially since I’ve already paid for the app itself. Is the base app free now, or something? I’m pretty sure it hasn’t taken away access to any of my sounds, but sometimes the phrasing makes it seem like it has or will? Mostly seems like it’s for the mediation access, which I don’t use. But the interface & sample collection is still nice! ————— I love this app. It has a nice mix of sounds & definitely helps me sleep. Very soothing. I do kind of wish it had a better interface for adjusting the volume for the individual sounds, but it's otherwise fantastic.
Helps Concentration
by HappyGradStudent87 on 2018/06/07 11:19
This app is amazing! I occasionally use various sounds for white noise when I sleep, but primarily I use it as a concentration aid when studying for my classes in graduate school (I'm working toward a PhD). The binaural beats are fantastic - it's incredible to see how much easier it is to focus and how much more I can remember when I study with this app than when I study without it. However, I took one star off because every time the app updates it deletes every combination of sounds that I’ve created. It’s really frustrating to have to recreate them. Update: I deleted the app and re-downloaded it, and it’s no longer deleting my mixes!
My favorite sleep app, BUT..
by ABamaBelle on 2018/07/25 03:38
It just needs an alarm clock to be added! That is my only gripe, that I want to be able to use it to fall asleep to at night, but there's only a timer/alarm setting, which the longest time is just 2 hrs! PLEASE PLEASE make it so I can customize it to alarm when it's time to get up for work! I would be SO happy!! This would be the BEST sleep app hands down, in my opinion, but unfortunately only good for a nap, which I'm too busy to ever have time to nap! UPDATE: OMG.. my dream has finally come true!! Thank you so much to the devs for the update with the alarm and clock added!! This is now the BEST in my opinion! The only trouble I'm having is that I can't figure out if there's a way to switch to the 12hr clock format rather than 24hr (ie: military time). Maybe I'm just a dummy, and the option is there somewhere, so if anyone knows, PLEASE clue me in! I love the update! Thank you, developers, thank you so much for this awesome app!! To me, this is SO worth the $3.99 price tag! P.S. I also preferred the old icon with the moon, but it's all good!
Soothing & versatile. Great quality.
by Arkelanor on 2018/06/25 22:15
About the updated version: if the bug is making the app crash, just erase it and download it again. It won't affect your paid status and will work without a glitch. Great updates. The graphics and navigation is better. The quality of the sounds is top notch and the variety makes it really versatile. I got it for my baby and use it for me also. The mixes transform any room in a different environment, feel outdoors, or in a meditative mood, day or night. It's great. Awesome for meditation and helping to sleep. No complains. Agree with having more packages for purchase as a good idea.
“Sound” purchase, am satisfied
by {Piper} on 2018/01/17 13:02
I am very happy with the options available on this app. The interface of choosing them is visually good, with the golden icons with symbols, but a couple of suggestions: 1- when a sound is chosen, the icon changes from golden to yellow. That slight contrast is too subtle when searching it out to discontinue that sound. 2- it would be nice to have a listing of running sounds, to avoid scrolling all icons to find the one you want to alter or discontinue. ( which, honestly may exist and I just haven’t found it?) The selection of sounds is nicely varied and I have found options I like very much, and having the option to mix them is great. Overall, I am satisfied with the app and I would recommend it
Love it!
by CPR115 on 2018/05/04 04:35
I love that I can change my sound combinations & configurations, down to volume of each sound component! I use it every single night to go to sleep. I've used it to relax on plane rides. Even to power nap over lunch or while getting a massage. At night, I turn it on and set the timer for an hour. Never once have I made it through the entire hour before falling fast asleep. I love the binary options, but it's a bit odd when not using with headphones as you can hear the ticking. Other than that, I swear I couldn't live without it at this point. Even helps my brain drown out the hubby's horrific snoring!
Still love it
by Chrish62704 on 2018/05/10 06:38
I’ve used this app every night for years. I used it in the bush to sleep through constant jets taking off when I was on base. Now, I use it at home, my family enjoys the sound as well. If you have tinnitus, this is the perfect app to keep the ringing out at night. I would the sound of being on an airplane. I use the app [Rain Rain] with this one because of this option, it’s almost like white noise with more base. I’ve tried adjusting the base with the iPhone’s EQ, speakers, etc., but it gets annoying to turn it off and on daily when you use the app for years. All in all, 5 stars.
Best sleep app EVER
by Jean3ll3 on 2018/11/14 14:17
I've tried every sleep sounds app there is and this is by far the best! There are so so many sounds to choose from. You can play 1-12 at a time and change the volume of each one so if you want to hear a little less of one sound and more of another you can. You can customize it to be the best for you. It also has the binaural beats and isochronic tones, which don't require headphones. There's even guided meditations. You can also put it on clock mode to see the time while it's playing, and you can dim it also. This is the app I go to when I can't sleep. The BEST!!!
Relaxing Melodies that help to ease the stress.
by Spiegelbe on 2018/05/15 02:53
I struggle getting to sleep an nights because of the never ending conscious stream of thought running through my brain. This app has helped me create my own personal sounds to help me quiet the thought, replacing that noise with sounds of peace. I use the timer to make sure whatever soothing sound I mix together stays playin for most of the night. Not too loud, but loud enough to keep my brain from straying. There are plenty of ‘white noise’ or ‘meditation’ types of apps available. I be looked at several but found this one to have a great selection of stand a line sounds that can be mixed together for your personal lullaby.
Great Way to Find Calm
by danabear719 on 2017/09/25 07:28
This app helps me so much by making it easy to tailor the exact sound I need to relax in a variety of situations. It has the most amazing sound choices and i love that you can vary the volumes in the mixes that you build... in fact I love that you can build mixes! I love the alarm and the count down so you can wake up to something not jarring or have it turn off automatically. If I could change one thing, I would give options on how to organize the sounds so you can group them in ways that make locating the exact sound easier... rain with rain or all the melodies together etc. Maybe include a search function.
Babies and Animal Cargivers
by Tricia.Haenchen on 2019/11/12 16:10
This is an amazing tool to help children fall asleep. This also I have used to help an animal and a child in pain when nothing more can be done or given to them. Had a child that the parents wouldn’t allow me to administer any medication to them and she was teething painfully so the relaxation pulsation option helped a ton! Also am caring for a old, medicated cat and he loves the relation option, helps him deal with the pain!!! Amazing stuff, truly I thank you! But one thing, to your marketing team, why isn’t this advertised and brought to the attention of the public, these benefits??!!??
This App Is Worth Getting the Paid Version
by HilndLord on 2018/08/06 01:07
Like many others have indicated, this has been a good app for relaxation and sleep. It was good enough that I purchased the full version. Then it got cluttered and begging for more money when I had already paid for it. I will continue to use it, but I'm done paying for it. Good in its basic format. UPDATE: Whatever the glitch was, it got fixed. The paid version now gives me total access without any additional $ going out. Because of that I’m upgrading my review. This app does what it advertises and is well worth getting the paid app.
Excellent App!
by jules19310 on 2017/05/10 20:50
This app is excellent, very well done. I use it mostly as a sound machine during the day, and I love the number and variety of sounds. I especially love the fact that you can mix them together. The main sounds, like thunder, ocean, rain, cavern, wind, etc., are excellent, but it also has many unique layering sounds, like playground, voices, medieval, grandfather clock, etc., which can be mixed, at a low volume, with the main sounds to mask daytime noises. I have many sound machines placed around my house, and I buy all the sound apps I can find, and this one is at the top of the list.
loooovee this app!
by Juanitarob on 2018/06/14 04:21
i originally had the free version but it didn't allow you to listen to the sounds if you closed the app or shut the screen, so i just went ahead and bought the upgrade. I'm so happy i did because i use some of the sounds to meditate but mostly to help me fall asleep, and i've noticed that when i use it I fall asleep faster and go into a deeper sleep. i also like this app because it has sooooo many choices for sounds, and you have so many options to customize it like how loud one noise is or having custom sounds preset. get it!!!
This used to be wonderful. Then it became a subscription.
by ThatDamnHoney on 2018/08/14 10:00
I have been a loyal user for years, having purchased many of their apps in a bundle and individually years ago. I stopped using for a couple of months only to come back with the meditations taken away except for two. You could've at least kept the existing meditations for those who already paid for your app. Now you want us to use an app that is already paid for AND subscribe? You should've created NEW meditations for your subscription service, not revoke the items from your paid customers. I'm so disappointed in you, and I see I'm not the only one. I definitely won't be subscribing due to how you treat customers that supported you by buying your apps.
Great
by Schteff525 on 2018/06/13 02:30
I downloaded the free version to try it out and loved it so much I decided to buy it. There are plenty of sounds to choose from and I love how you can make and save your own mix. I use this app mainly to rock my son to sleep, but it helps me relax too. Some nights I have a hard time falling asleep so I put my own sounds on and I love the fact that it has a timer so it doesn't play all night. I had my mom download it as well when she told me her sound machine died and she loves it too. Update: I’ve had this app for a few years now and I still use it nightly. I love it!
So Perfect
by Bodalla on 2018/06/18 14:36
You can weave whatever sounds, melodies, or white noises you want. You can adjust the volume on all the noises you wish to combine, prioritizing some over others. With the paid version, you get more noises, the ability to use things from your music library, guided meditations, and save files that allow you to pick your favorite creations automatically. This app is perfect for concentration, meditation, exercise and pain management, relaxation, and sleep. Craft your own surroundings, your own atmosphere! I highly recommend the full version purpose.
One of the best apps I've purchased.
by that-artsy-ch1ck on 2018/03/29 02:01
I used the free version of this app for a long while before finally deciding to upgrade to this, having completely fallen in love with the free format. This version, (for $2.99, I think it was?), gives you a remarkable variety of sounds to choose from, several guided meditations, (a definite plus, was not expecting to get so much more with the purchase), and a variety of binaural beats. You can mix your own sounds from the menu to create your own unique one, which you can then save to your favorites. Or, you can choose to listen to some preset favorites. Either way, it's an incredibly soothing experience. I decided to upgrade because I was having trouble sleeping and dealing with my anxiety, and since I started listening to this app (which can run in the background of your iOS), I have definitely become more relaxed than I was. This is probably the best app from these makers. Very satisfied.
Works Like a Charm
by M-the-B on 2017/09/23 13:03
Makes mornings and "can't be distracted work" work like a charm. Only wish you could still mix & match multiple binaurals and isochronics. STILL USING IT A YEAR AND A HALF AFTER I WROTE WHAT FOLLOWS: I use it a lot. Binaurals help with transition from wake-up to coffee and calm me while cooking. Ambient music/sounds coupled with binaurals work well as a noise filter and are really nice for timing computer sessions. Even use it to aid students' ability to settle into receptive mental states for movement work and pre-Butoh exercises. This last is what got me to upgrade from the free version, which is pretty terrific on its own.
Still needs work
by CaineZephyr on 2018/05/14 04:53
I want to give this app more stars because I use it so often but pairing poor layout now that there are so many sounds (but don't take them away, if anything add more) and the issue of charging subscriptions on a paid app keeps me from doing that. I can't stand subscription apps. The only thing I feel is worth a subscription is Netflix and that is because it is cheaper than cable. I love the additions to the app otherwise but it needs a drop down menu or something where you can go to pages of sounds, meditations, music player, or the beats. That way you don't have to go through so many pages to find what you want. Still one of the best sleep apps, but nothing should ever be completely finished with apps, there is always room for improvement. Update: The layout is a little better but the update was mostly about design to me. So, I am not sure the update was worth the wait. I am still hoping for some more soothing low hertz melodies, flutes and high hertz sounds wake me up or at least get irritating.
Great app for study time and evening routines!
by Rep3988 on 2020/06/19 03:47
I've been using this app for almost ten years. The binaural beats work quite well for me. I use this to get into the zone for writing and reading. I have a preset combination of music with binaural beats humming in the background. You can even play your own music and add the binaural frequencies underneath. A few minutes of listening and I'm in the zone for the long haul. Try it. It's worth checking out. I also use it to unwind at night when I’m reading in bed. It’s peaceful. I even use the guided meditations for relaxation before sleeping.
The BEST ritual
by meshanklin on 2018/12/19 02:16
I use this app almost every night. I turn it on, open my book, and I’m asleep before the timer dims the sound. I’ve been using this app for a few years now... it never gets old. I mean, how does the sound of the ocean and peepers get old? I recommend it to all my friends. Always HIGHLY recommended! Also, I spent money to upgrade and it was somewhat worth it. I do think the developers should allow their basic listeners to try out the new sounds or they should be able to add sounds as they wish for .99 - just a thought!
Worth the purchase!
by JaeMerf on 2018/07/12 17:50
I love that you can mix so many beats at once. I like that there are also binaural beats too for sleep concentration etc. And you can also add these binaural beats and or sounds to your own music within the app too! Definitely do some exploring due to the fact that there are so many sounds. But definitely worth it! For real. Helped me through many panic attacks and sleepless nights. I always have a fan on at home, but if I'm traveling I can just use this app and it works just as well! Has a timer and alarm built in! LOVE IT! 👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿❤️❤️❤️
Proud to one of the firsts
by orcanson on 2017/08/17 08:39
I think if I look up my earlier records I think I can go back 6 to 8 years - I do remember a promotional and if I truly appreciated the app the I was invited to purchase a version without advertisements. I have been following your work ever since - I think I even got a version where there was a holiday theme but I could be wrong - I think it went away when my 3rd gen iPod gave out. Either way your app has helped me get to sleep and drown out the outside when I want to just enjoy a book and pretend to be by a quiet stream and wind chimes.
Everyday useful for the tech-tard!
by Everyday(night) User on 2018/07/03 04:29
I use this every night and on weekends dying afternoon naps. I’m not sure I really could sleep without it at this point! I mis up my evening mixes regularly, but I still use it every night! I give it 4 stars instead of 5, just for the mere fact that I haven’t really explored all the fun features of the app, meaning my review isn’t truly about the entire app. I’m kinda tech-tarded and I’m able to use this app without going too deep into all of its cool bells and whistles, and that’s just how I love it! So 5 Stars really, but 4 because I know there’s other parts that I don’t know about. Sincerely, Everyday User
100% recommend
by Domino0504 on 2018/05/07 03:05
I’ve been using this app forever and I use it every night to go to bed and I just need it. This app has helped my hearing because I used to hate when it would rain and I would have to put in earplugs but now since I listen to this I really love the sound of rain because of this app. It truly helps me fall asleep every night and i really love how it can exit the app after awhile. One thing I would fix is to make the rain sounds more realistic because they kind of sound like a shower but that’s really it.
So soothing
by prokal on 2017/09/06 04:39
I absolutely love Relax Melodies!! I've tried many of the other apps that are available, but a lot of them have strange sound loops, irritating preset combinations, or just lack variety. Relax Melodies has several individual melodies(most I've seen of any app) to pick from, and you can create your own unique blend of sounds. Ever wanted to hear ocean waves gently caress the shore while listening to monks chant with a dryer in the background? Now you can. This app has saved me from many sleepless nights and it keeps getting better with each update.
ABSOLUTELY SUPERB!!! 👍 5+ Stars
by Only1Risa on 2018/06/09 05:57
I absolutely LOVE this app (and the Oriental one)! It's one of my most favorite apps, and I use it ALL THE TIME!!!! I've created some of the most beautiful mixes/sounds! The possibilities are endlessly amazing! Sometimes I'll meditate and listen to them, directly in my ears, through noise cancelling headphones/earplugs or I'll play them through my Bose system, for the entire room or space. It's just so awesome and peaceful, and it creates such a BEAUTIFUL ambiance! Relax Melodies and Relax Melodies Oriental (both, premium) are truly must-have apps! Great job, IpnosSoft! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! 😊❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️✨
Great for ASD, Anxiety, & Sensory Processing Disorders
by TypesetJez on 2018/05/07 05:02
I tried this app as a white noise app because it was highly rated and offered a lot more customization and variety than others. I have Asperger's and a sensory processing disorder and needed comforting noise to help me fall asleep and to focus during anxious situations. This app has been incredibly helpful with both, and I've even started some of the meditation samples and found them interesting. Highly recommended for anyone with ASD or SPD, but also for anyone who just needs to relax a little, and really, who doesn't?
Used to be a 5
by Glee Fan 5 on 2018/05/24 13:28
I would have put a 5 ad this is my favorite noise app. However, they did an update where you think you are saving a mix and a timer, but if you close the app it doesn’t actually save and you have to start over again. Go back to the way it was before please, I’m tired of having to do a new mix every night. Update: It saves initially, but as soon as you close the app, it’s no longer in the saved section. Tried saving multiple times the way you said. Wouldn’t save. Tried it being in the background longer. Same issue. Was never an issue until the last big update.
Been a fan for years.
by dmgabe on 2018/07/05 03:53
Been a big fan since the early days on the Mac. Very relaxing with lots of options to get everything perfect for your particular tastes. Also love the meditation content. Update: Still loving the app but am concerned about the extremely slow pace of updates and the fact that the community melodies seems to be a dead feature not long after they introduced it. Really hoping it doesn’t go the way of their Mac app which has been abandoned for quite some time now. In its current state, still works fine with iOS 11.2 always keep my fingers crossed that the next iOS update doesn’t kill it. Obviously not updated to support the iPhone X. Use it nightly on my iPad and it is definitely a batter hog but that’s only a problem on nights I forget to plug it in. Glad to see the latest release. It has renewed my faith that the product will live on.
Tranquil in Texas
by Friendswood Mom on 2018/05/07 01:21
I really enjoy creating my own soothing sounds to which I can fall asleep and awaken. My only complaint would be that each individual sound does not have a long enough runtime before it replays. This leads to very repetitive sounds. I can't fall asleep or stay asleep without my favorite brown noise to drown out ambient noises. Using guided meditations is one of my 2017 resolutions and the app upgrade makes it so easy. 6May18- still loving the app and the recent upgrade. Still trying to get used to he new interface, but enjoy the new sounds and the staff mixes are really good
What happened??
by JohnEmotions on 2018/05/03 07:20
I use this app daily because I can customize it so much. I'd give it 5 stars except that it does crash once in awhile, and the UI could be improved. Otherwise, one of my favorite apps. The new (May 2015) spoken word stuff was a good idea - nice addition. Update (July 19, 2015) Had to drop it to two stars because they added a bright red "upgrade" button that crowds the interface, screws up the UX and seems impossible to get rid of ... Even though I actually paid for the app months ago. Bad UI and the whole bait-and-switch with the ads/paid upgrades for an app that was originally purchased outright is unethical and stupid. January 2017 Interface is much-improved, but still a little counter-intuitive as all of the buttons don't fit across the bottom, forcing you to figure out to slide the lower navbar. Other than that, the product has evolved nicely. I dig the new meditations. The voice and audio quality are top notch.
Changing from + to -to...
by Shebearcub on 2018/05/12 10:53
I Paid for the premium app because I was happy with the free one, and thought it was a good deal for a couple dollars. I was happy with it until they added a bunch of unrelated content and asked for a subscription fee. They would have done far better making the new content into its own app and trusting its previously happy customers to try it They added a few new sounds and a more useful bedtime timer to help you with keeping on schedule. I am still a bit annoyed with the subscription aspect but happy overall with the basic functions and sounds available.
