What is it about?
Thunderspace is the first white noise app from Franz Bruckhoff and Taptanium, and it's still one of the best. While it does not feature the beautiful parallax art from the other white noise apps, Thunderspace 5K features soothing color gradients to represent the thunderstorm that you choose to listen to. The app comes with two storms already, but you can purchase more through in-app purchases, which is well worth it if you enjoy a variety of thunderstorm types. Thunderspace also has 3-D audio and uses your device's flash to simulate lightning for the full effect. If you're a fan of thunderstorms and find zen in listening to them but don't always have them (like in Southern California), then Thunderspace is your new best friend. It's a great way to relax..
For those who...
- Love thunderstorms
- Enjoy the sounds of rains
Not for those who...
- Don't like in-app purchases
- Don't care for thunderstorms
Why we love it
If you have troubles relaxing or sleeping, you have to give Thunderspace a try. The 3-D audio coupled with the LED flashes makes the experience totally unique.

Thunderspace's spectacular 3D audio sound field reproduction technology delivers a realistic, high quality open space sonic ambience over regular stereo headphones. How so? Think 3D glasses for 3D film. Left eye, right eye. Your brain combines these two images into a 3D image. The same principle works for sound: Left ear, right ear. Thunderspace audio is biomimetic: It reproduces the ambient sound field exactly the way you hear. As if you were there. With interaural time and level differences. The storm rumbles high above you, and the rain falls around you. Once you experience the transportive sonic ambience, you will never again want to go back to simple stereo.
Precisely synchronized lightning flashes, frequent updates with new premium quality thunderstorms, a carefully crafted user interface and highest quality recordings from Emmy-award winning nature sound recordist Gordon Hempton separate Thunderspace from all other relaxation apps.
Thunderspace teleports your mind to a place far away from stress. Far away from the noise. So you can focus on your work, sleep better and relax.
