Great app! 5/5
By Anee U
All apps have their flaws, but the ones with White Noise Market are not too major. Mostly when I first got the app, I didn’t know I have to get the white noise one and then the market. In my opinion, I think it would be better if it was all in one place, but other than that, I like it.
This has to be the most frustrating and disappointing app on any device. I’ve had the white noise app for a while and I love it. But the white noise market is the bane of my existence. I recently recorded bonfires and decided I’d like to upload. The only thing that I could find about uploads was in the subscription tab. So I paid the dollar to be able to upload. After paying I was not able to find any way to do so. I looked online multiple times and I have the support page memorized. To bad the page was no help. After trying/clicking everything I could on the app. I gave up. I went back to the support page to see how to get in contact with someone. I was sure it was user error. The only way to contact them is through sending feed back. I clicked the option and was told that I’d needed a verified email. Again it doesn’t tell you were or how to get email sent to verify. I went into my email and found the email verification from months ago. So now I can’t even tell them to burn the dollar I just paid. Now I’m out the dollar and more frustrated then when I first started.
TLDR: paid for a subscription not able to upload sounds or speak to anyone regarding the issue.
This is my all time favorite app. The one I use everyday. Many times a day.
Great app for sleep help 5/5
I love this app! I don't download everything that they offer, but I have found some really solid sounds and meditations that help me fall asleep.
Highly recommend this app for anybody 5/5
By Pod Baker
I absolutely love this app and helps me to sleep at night I would highly recommend it to anyone!!!
Needs improvement 2/5
I love white noise. I love the flexibility of importing sounds. However, in practice, marketplace loses my account at least a couple times a year, and the support staff is absolutely no help. I have to re-download most of my sounds when that happens. There is never anyway to tell how many sounds I am going to lose as a result of losing my account. If there is still some need to have two separate programs, fine. I have no clue what that could possibly be however. As it is, market is not a good market place. I sure hope it makes the company a ton of money.
Good app 5/5
You can find a wonderful meditation for just about anyone’s liking.
How do I get rid of the ridiculous ad?? 1/5
Why would I want to see bubble butts advertised in this app???
Give me the ability to remove them or I’ll delete the app.
Love it! Thanks 5/5
I loved the old app, cant figure out how to download the new one
Use for bedtime 5/5
Best sleeping app ever
Bought Pro version, still ads 3/5
Buying the Pro version will not get rid of ads in the marketplace.
The perfect App 5/5
Absolutely love this app and the accompanying sounds marketplace app. Have used it for years. A joy to use.
Can’t connect thru Google anymore 3/5
Working fine and 5 stars until IOS 12. Now can’t sign in with Google anymore and can’t download more than a few sounds. Not happy as I use this nightly.
By George Orr
The best sound to sleep by and this app has an excellent variety. Although it is complicated/confusing by having 2 apps it does have a good selection of sounds.
By plowgirl 100%
Can’t figure out howto stop one noise and start another
Update: thank you for the quick response to my frustration, I love the app and now I can enjoy the noises and be in control lol thanks again for the quick response 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
Don’t want Facebook or google? Too bad 1/5
Couldn’t use because I don’t use either Facebook or Google. I understand it’s supposed to be a “social network” for sounds but I’m not sure why it requires sign in with the big two.
Could there not be another option? One that doesn’t require signing in to anything or at least something operated by the developer instead? I’m guessing the developer doesn’t want to do any moderation in any capacity and login via G/F makes that possible.
Hate it! 1/5
I loved it until you changed it into social media. Can’t find a thing. I hate these changes!!!
Great app, devs seem to care 5/5
By Mr. John.com
I’m a paying customer and sound contributer, plus I actually signed into the market just now. That’s basically vip status for white noise, yet, I just got the most intrusive/malicious ad I’ve ever seen since coming to iOS a year ago (worse than anything I’ve ever seen on android for that matter). It was a black jack card playing app, it pops up, there’s 3 buttons, 2 say ‘play’ and 1 says ‘clear’. There’s no ‘x’ anywhere, not even a sneaky dark grey one on a black background. And no normal timer either, just an ‘in game, timer of like 5min.
So yea, absolutely no way to click out or get rid of it, not even by waiting 30 seconds like the other breed of horribly intrusive ads. Even then I shouldn’t have even those sorts of ads if I payed money for the app, I won’t lie I thought that’s what the money was for. I still don’t have all the high end prebuilt sounds/features, no that’s for the ‘pro’ version. The trick is splitting the app into many parts and charging money for almost every piece. The white noise ‘market’ no one is even able to pay for even if they wanted to. So someone paying the top dollar ‘pro’ price still has to watch the very intrusive ads. Great app though, but after this ad I’m starting to seriously question the marketing strategies. Obviously it’s great for the dev, and that’s good, I just hope their not getting too greed/sold the app to China. Maybe they didn't review the ad, which is not a good practice IF that's the case, I'm hoping it was a mistake to let that type of ad through though. I just can't imagine tmsoft making those types of malicious, app crashing ads the new normal.
So that’s where I’m at. I had to kill and clear the app from my cache just to escape the ad. We need to get rid of this blackjack/21 malvertising, otherwise I'll be clearing from cache and uninstalling the whole white noise market.
I'll give you guys some time to look into this ad, white noise is a great app that I've contributed to, but if I'm gonna be trapped inside an ad everytime, I'll have to rerhink my sleep strategy.
Also I do agree with others, I don't like the new market layout, there are thousands of sounds and now we can only see 1 at a time, where as
before it was tiled and we could see and read about several at once. Please bring back tile view, make it optional if you want, but we want to see the picture and title of many sounds at once.
Update: Thanks for the response that's awesome. I'd like to believe you would have responded even if my original review title wasn't as colorful as 'malvertising' but i wanted you guys to see it and pull the ad asap if it was a mistake, and if it would have been intentional, well the ad itself fits the description. I described the ad in detail in the hopes you can find it and pull it.
Its interesting how much 1 rogue ad can change ones viewpoint on a developer. First I was like 'yea love white noise, it's community oriented, yada yada'.. Then I get an ad I cant escape, and I'm like 'man they take free sounds from the community, and make the community buy the app to use the sounds they uploaded, and then have the nerve to pull this adware crap'... lol.. Maybe a lesson in here about the importance of not letting rogue ads through.
But yea I get you have to pay for the infrastructure, platform, bandwidth, it's a great value for the customers actually, we get a lot with the low price we pay, even if some of it comes from us. White noise market also provides the means to discover new sounds too, so again its a great symbiotic relationship, it seems, between tmsoft and the community.
Thanks for your thoughtful reply, hope to get tile view back one day. Please vet ads better if that's possible.
White noise is still the best sleep app. By far.
This the worst app ever. Total garbage. If you want to smash your phone over simple frustrations over and over again download it.
Put on headphones or earbuds... Turn on a soothing noise and make the world disappear for a while. Great for loud hotels.
iPhone 7 1/5
Does not Work with iPhone 7 bedtime. Also does not respond to queries
Great app 5/5
I love that you can download more sounds. The sound of catydids in late summer has always been soothing/comforting to me and I found the perfect one to download. Thanks
Very slick! 5/5
By Fan sound
Whoa it's all about sounds and fun conversation. Unlike facebook and twitter which is toxic. Thanks!
Requires signing into Facebook or Google 1/5
This app appears to require you to become a member of Facebook (we know what happens to your private information on Facebook!) or to sign onto Google. Google states that they want you to sign in for the purpose of “sharing information about you”. I love the previews of many of the sounds, but I will not sacrifice my privacy and leave myself open to the information pirates. Therefore, I am deleting this app.
Jennifer in Sonoma 5/5
Just clearly the best app ever !!!!
Love this app 5/5
I love discovering the new sounds that people post. I also love the map feature where I can find sounds from around the world that people are sharing!
Always use! 5/5
My family and I were camping near a family that brought their loud at 5AM new born baby. They didn't know how or try to stop the crying. I learned of this app and found my lovely headphones. It was tootles loud kid the rest of the week.
Bring back grid view 3/5
Please bring back grid view. It made browsing sounds easier and enjoyable. The current scrolling approach is somewhat stressful.
Ads plus account required 1/5
I already purchased the White Noise Pro but this download app has ads and requires you to sign in with social media account to not be limited in downloads and use most of the features. This is crap!
By Now a lefty
I love the app, the ability to import other peoples recordings are an absolute plus! This has been my go to app for many years, keep it going!
The App for noise developed. 5/5
Excellent app bar none...
How to disable ads 4/5
I want to disable ads there is no place to do
Love! Drowns out L.A. traffic! 5/5
I Love this app! It allows me to mix sounds so I can Drown out L.A. traffic and sleep. I'm so thankful!
Easy to use 5/5
However it would be nice to be able to get rid of the ads
Best ever 5/5
Don't bother with anything else.....this is the best app in this category hands down.
Needs more ways to login... 3/5
This app is a fine one, BUT has one flaw in how it was designed - you are only given 2 choices: sign in using Facebook(which I don’t use... poor security, plus Facebook sells my personal info to advertisers, or Google (just as bad or worse on personal privacy than FB).
How about logging in using our email, TMZOFT?
Awesome App 5/5
My sister told me about both apps and even sent me some of the sounds she made herself.
Normally I like this app 1/5
But it just took me 15 min to turn off an alarm I didn’t set! I was searching and searching while this horrible noise kept going off.
365 days of sound sleep and counting 5/5
This is the best app I have found. It’s super easy to download new sounds and mix them to make the perfect blend send you straight to La La Land. I’ve recommend it to friends and family, some of whom have also downloaded it and enjoy it as much as I do. Can’t say enough about this awesome, easy, free app!
Best sound app ever 5/5
Amazingly large collection with great quality recordings
Love it 5/5
By Great awesome sandwich guy
I have a hard time sleeping and this helps. It doesn’t make me more tired it just makes it easier to sleep. If you’re wondering if you should get it, you should get it.
Love it!! 5/5
Can't sleep without it!!!
One of my favorite apps! 5/5
I had several apps for nature sounds, ambient noise, etc., and this replaced them all!
White noise 5/5
Greet ap! Really helps me get to sleep! Lots of sounds to choose from
Best app! 5/5
Works like a little gift from heaven!
I've had insomnia for years, with the additional stress of a painful disease that only allowed me to sleep 30-45mins at a time. (With 2-3 hours of waking hours before going back to sleep again.)
After I installed this app, the first night my life changed!
I literally slept like a baby for 5 hours straight!!! Flabbergasted 😲 I fell asleep again for ANOTHER 3 hours after that!
Thank LAWD for this app!
Great app 5/5
Such a wide variety of sounds makes this a fantastic app. The ability to record my own sounds is a great part of the app. I can't say enough good things.
Awesome App! 5/5
By Rose Flower
This one of my favorite apps! 👍🏼👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
If you lay down face up with low delta 5/5
Instantaneous sleeping! This helps me to lucid dream, dream easy when im nervous and get through long trips or just a couple hours. You can put minimum brightness and no internet and plug in your headphones. For me it lasts 2 % every hour. So yeah
Love this app! 5/5
Omg! Now I can upload my own sounds I made in the White Noise App to the market??! That's crazy cool. Being able to share sounds from the world with the world is just a really fun concept. This is still my go-to when I'm looking for a new sound to add to the night-time repertoire! Awesome job!
