For a lot of people, a little uniform background noise is helpful to remain calm and focused. In some cases, it also boosts productivity and lowers the effects of stress and anxiety. Background noise also masks tinnitus, calms agitated infants and improves reading and meditation experiences.

Noice is an app that allows you to create personalised sound environments. It enables you to combine different sounds at different volume levels to create perfect ambient atmospheres. These custom sound surroundings let you drown out distractions and allow you to concentrate. You can also use it to generate a serene, peaceful aura that encourages you to relax and fall asleep.
