We’re pretty passionate about audio. So we made this crazy “white noise” app and packed it full of features and content (although we like to call it “functional music; ” calling it white noise doesn’t really do it justice). It helps you get better sleep, focus, meditation, relaxation and a whole lot more.
We have a large library of sounds, music, stories, and meditations to choose from, many of which are designed using the same scientific principles we incorporate in our other product Pzizz. Sounds play endlessly while stories have the option to loop.
Saving a mix not only allows you easier access in the future, but unlocks all sorts of special functions (described below in ‘Advanced Features’).
Unsure what to listen to? That’s what the Discover tab is for. We pre-make mixes for you based on what you’re trying to do.
If you’d like a mix to turn off after a period of time you can set a timer. Additionally you can set a default timer for favorited mixes so that every time a mix is played it starts the timer automatically.
Create a list of mixes with individual timers that crossfade seamlessly into each other. You can also set “wait timers” and even an alarm to play at the end.
When you favorite a mix you can arrange them in folders. This is useful if you want to put all your sleep content in one folder, focus content in another, etc. It’s also useful because of folder actions like “play random in folder” and setting a Siri Shortcut to play random in folder (you can access folder actions by long pressing the folder).
We have Siri Shortcuts for nearly everything in Soundly, including launching a particular mix, launching a random mix in a folder, and launching a random mix of a particular content category (like “Sleep”).
Building habits is hard. With Soundly you can set custom reminders that will help you build self-care habits.
Want to play a random mix of a particular type? On the Discover tab there are “Instants.” Currently available for Sleep, Focus, Nature, Meditate, Nap, Breathe, Relax and Wakeup. If you long press an instant you can set a Siri Shortcut for it.
Slow down or speed up and given narration to match the pace you’re grooving at.
