:: A Simple Thunderstorm App ::

This is a little weird because, you know, I don't plug products here at all, but, I just had to tell you about one 
of the apps I have on my phone called Thunderspace. Why? It's one App that has actually really helped me and 
several of my friends as well to relax, to meditate, and best of all to fall asleep to. Folks, I put in my head phones, 
start the app, and within mere minutes I am asleep. Really. No kidding here. It brings the storm to you, without the actual mess of a real storm. If you love the sound of a thunderstorm, then this app is for you, no kidding. Seriously, there’s nothing better than zoning out at home while in the middle of a thunderstorm, right? I love it, listening to the soothing sounds of a gloomy, dark storm with endless amounts of raindrops and rolling thunder and lightning. Sounds good, doesn’t it?

It uses stereoscopic 3-D audio to reproduce what you would hear during an actual thunderstorm. Of course, with this in mind, the app is most effective with a pair of headphones or earbuds, as you do not get the 3-D experience with the iPhone speakers. Additionally, the app will make use of your iPhone’s LED flash to replicate lightning. With this on, you will be told to place your iPhone out of sight (with the flash exposed), and it will flash in timed intervals to light up the entire room, as it would in real life. When you have both the sound and visual effects of a thunderstorm, it is absolutely like having your own personal slice of heaven.

The Thunderspace app will need to be open in the foreground for the effect to keep going without interruption. The screen will have a button to toggle the lightning effect, and you can pause and resume the audio at any time with the playback button.
With the initial download of Thunderspace, you will have two types of thunderstorms: Roof Garden and Waterscape. To change your audio selection, just swipe right to reveal the storm selection panel. Tap on the one you want — each will come with a very descriptive summary of the sounds you will hear. Each storm will also have its very own color scheme, so there’s plenty of variety both audibly and visually.
There are six other thunderstorms that you can purchase at $0.99 a pop. If you tap on one of these extra storms, you will be able to hear a looping preview of it, which should help you decide if you really want it or not. However, for most people, I think the two that are included should suffice.
Anyway, I have really been enjoying this app. Maybe you might like it as well. Try it. See what you think. I would love to know how it works for you!
