Recently, I’ve been having some trouble sleeping. Whenever that happens, I always end up bringing my laptop to bed and putting on a show for me to fall asleep to. I guess you could say I use it as background noise. I recently read an article about how much better it is to use a relaxing sound like rain pouring or waves crashing. Right away, I wanted to try it. I was Google-ing where to buy a machine that would make these sounds and came across this app instead, Relax Melodies: A white noise ambience for sleep, meditation and yoga by iLBSoft.
Relax Melodies offers 46 rich, ambient sounds. There are so many, you’re sure to find a few you won’t be able to sleep without! My favorites are Waterfall, Slow Waves, Urban Rain and River. I guess it shows how much of a water-lover I am, even through the sounds I like! What if you don’t like water or any sounds it can make? That’s fine, too. There are plenty of other relaxing sounds. I think Winds, Cavern and Afternoon are so calming. When you open Relax Melodies, you immediately see a list of each sound. To see more, swipe to the left. This makes Relax Melodies very user friendly. People LOVE it! It’s been downloaded over five million times and is rated a very solid five out of five stars by nearly five thousand ratings! So for what it does, it’s flawless.
Relax Melodies is free to download, so there are ads. If you love it enough to invest in getting rid of the ads, you can download Relax Melodies Premium for $2.99. If you do, you won’t just be getting rid of the ads, you’ll be adding a massive amount of extra sounds – it has a total of 94! I’d definitely suggest starting with Relax Melodies first to see if the sounds put you to sleep. They sure do for me – such a lullaby! Good luck!
