Unwind to the realistic sounds of a thunderstorm.
Pocket Storm provides the sounds of a storm cycle from serene to vibrant and then back again. The app creates an atmosphere realistic to a true thunderstorm for those who find it a soothing effect.
Move through the storm. After choosing your storm length from five minutes up to one hour, press play to start the sounds. As the storm moves in and out, you will see the tile move across the top. This shows you the stage of the storm you are hearing. You can slide the tile forward or back to hear specific points in the storm cycle, if you like.
What is it about?
With Pocket Storm you can listen to the sounds of a storm moving in from the distance and then fading away. It starts with calming nature sounds and then soon the thunder begins. You can set the duration of the thunderstorm from five minutes up to one hour to experience the entire cycle no matter which you choose.
For those who...
- You love the sounds of storms
- You are only interested in audio effects and not visual
Not for those who...
- You hate the sounds of storms
- You want visual effects in addition to audio
Why we love it
If thunderstorms moving in and out create a relaxing atmosphere for you, then Pocket Storm is your perfect calming companion.
App Store Description
Pocket Storm is an environmental audio player which streams an hour-long, ever-changing thunderstorm.
It starts with a calm summer night. Soon you’ll hear thunder in the distance, then wind and a spatter of rain. After half an hour you’ll be in the thick of the storm. By the end of the hour it will have faded into the night again. Then the cycle begins again.
Pocket Storm is not like other environmental audio apps. Every thunderstorm is different! Wind, rain, thunder — even chirping crickets — every sound is chosen from a library, with subtle variations of pitch and timing. The Pocket Storm weaves these elements into a tapestry of sound which will never repeat.
- A storm that approaches, surrounds you, and then drifts away.
- Elegant, uncluttered interface.
- Set the storm’s duration anywhere from a sixty-minute monster down to a five-minute squall...
...or hold the skies in place, and listen to the same weather for as long as you want.
- Listen with headphones...
...or send audio to an AppleTV or other AirPlay device on your wireless network.
- Runs as a background audio app.
- Never-ending, ever-changing soundscape generated right on your iOS device.
...(No Internet connection required!)
Pocket Storm is also available for your new Apple TV. It's a joint iOS/tvOS purchase – buy either version and you can download both!
All the sounds in Pocket Storm's library are Creative Commons licensed audio samples from Freesound.org.
Use the Pocket Storm for white noise, tuning out distractions; for relaxation, meditation, or going to sleep. Tune your desert to rain, or your city street to chirping crickets.
