Smartphones are a step towards the future offering so many different features, keeping the owner up to date on the latest news, his appointments, weather etc.. But sometimes all of this thrown into the normal working day can become very stressful. An app such as Relax and Sleep is a great way to just take a little break and relax to some ambient tunes. Lets see if this app really sets out to do what it says it does or is it just another annoying noise? Lets have a look.
Functions & Design
When opening up the application you will find a list of different ambient sounds to play. There are plenty of different sounds to choose from a piano playing, the ocean, violin, rain, aquarium etc.. Users are able to mix and match different tunes together for example perhaps you choose to have an acoustic guitar playing with the sound of the beach in the background. When choosing to play several tunes together you are able to tinker with the volume of each sound, making some louder than the others. If you find a particular sound you like you can favourite it and it will be moved to the top of the list.
If you create a great combination of different sounds and you want to be able to listen to them easily next time, users can save the sounds currently playing as a preset, so next time all they have to do is click in the respective preset for it to begin. Alternatively you can also use a random button which when activated creates a random tune for you when you shake your Android device.
If you want to save battery power there is also a timer you can set which enables you to have the tune play for set time before fadding out. Users can also set an alarm waking up to whatever peaceful sound they have set for the morning. There is also a clock available through the app.
Relax and Sleep is a great way to escape for 5 or 10 minutes during a busy day or falling to sleep something peaceful. The audio is very clear and the ability to mix and match different ambient tunes whilst adjusting the different volumes really gives the users alot of free reign. If your in need if some peace and calm definitly give this app a go, Relax and Sleep is available to download for free from the Android Market. Tested Relax and Sleep in version 3.3.
