If you’re working at home for the first time during the coronavirus pandemic, something you may have noticed is the lack of sound and ambient noise. For many people, that can help to concentrate and be more productive.
And the new app Ambients wants to bring back the soundtrack of life to your iPhone or iPad.
Three sounds are included with the free version of the app - Streets of NYC, Coffee Shop, and Beach. You can unlock all of the soundtracks in the World Tour, Outdoor Fun, and Drinks & Dining sections for $5.99.
Each individual pack can be unlocked with a $2.99 in-app purchase.
Some of the additional sounds include Evening Stroll in Paris, a Neighborhood Swimming Pool, and Busy Restaurant.
The Paris soundtrack, and others, were recorded on location with binaural microphones.
As a nice touch, the app also supports Siri Shortcuts so you can customize a phrase to start a specific sound. When ready, just say the phrase the Siri, and the app will automatically open and start playing.
