Some sounds may help you focus while working, relieve stress and anxiety, and relax. Most of them come from nature as sounds like rain, thunderstorm, and forest have a naturally calming influence on our bodies and minds. But sometimes when you are at work or even at home, buried under a pile of to-do lists, you can’t afford going out to watch the trees rustle in the wind. Instead, you can download Noisli.
Nosili is a gorgeous web and iOS app designed and developed by Stefano Merlo. It allows you to listen to various ambient sounds as well as change their emphasis and mix together to create an ideal composition. Apart from beautiful minimalist interface, the app comes with a built-in timer function, which you can use to fall asleep to your favourite sounds of nature.
You can download Noisli from the AppStore for just $0.99. It is compatible with both iPhone and iPad, but if you’d rather use it in the browser, you can check out the web app. At the moment it offers only two sounds to listen to, but that is said to change in the future. In exchange you get a neat, distraction-free text editor.
