Kindle Tip: Free Kindle Fire (and Android) App of the Day - White Noise


White Noise, by TMSOFT, v4.7.2 worth noting

The White Noise app works with all Kindle Fires and other Android-based devices.  Various ambient sounds and a timer and alarm system.

There's a normal free version as well, but that one doesn't allow you to use your device for other functions like reading while the sound is going.

  This one does have that flexibility and is usually $1.99 but it's today's Free App of the day at Amazon, so I thought I should blog it, as normally the free app of the day is a game for the younger set.

"Revolutionary Sound App!" --Dr. Oz

AMAZING ANDROID APPS - Book by Daniel A. Begun
"White Noise can instantly transform a chaotic environment into a calm oasis."

THE WASHINGTON POST: Smartphone Puts Newborn to Sleep
"For the next four months, the infant slept with his father's phone in his crib and White Noise tuned to 'air conditioner.' The monotonous buzz kept the baby sleeping soundly and his parents happy."

HEALTH MAGAZINE
"Help you turn off your brain, fall asleep faster, and get the rest you desperately need."

Air Conditioner, Airplane, Amazon, Beach Waves, Boat, Cars, Cat Purring, Chimes, City Streets, Clock, Clothes Dryer, Crickets, Crowd, Drip, Fan, Fire, Frogs, Hair Dryer, Heartbeat, Blue Noise, Brown Noise, Pink Noise, Violet Noise, White Noise, Ocean Waves, Car Rain, Light Rain, Heavy Rain, Extreme Rain, Rain Storm, Shower, Sprinkler, Stream, Tibetan Bowl, Thunder, Train, Vacuum, Washer, Water, Wind '

So, yes, I'm presenting their marketing brochure.  But it intrigued me and I'll be getting it, so am passing the info along to others who may be interested but don't have time to check the apps each day.

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the blogger.com "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the 'blogger.com' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
