UPDATE 23/11 2017:
The app has now been updated and works on iOS11.
Noise can make it hard to concentrate, and for many students, there is no quiet place to work in their home. This simple free app developed by the Sound Agency and supported by Ecophon, delivers 45 minutes of scientifically designed productivity-boosting sound that can mask ambient noise, help focus, improve cognition and reduce fatigue.
Perfect for homework in less than ideal sound environments
It is not a substitute for ideal or near quiet study conditions. However, imagine a student at home in a semi-open plan living space, trying to do their homework while another sibling is watching television and a parent is cooking and trying to coach through the various homework and student project tasks. This can be a common scenario and while it is better for a student to be in a silent room, this isolation is often not practical or realistic, so homework is often done in less than ideal environments.
A soundscape engineered to help you concentrate
With this type of scenario in mind, the soundscape is custom designed to promote cognition combining natural sounds, especially birdsongs with a slow tempo and high frequency soothing musical sounds. The overall effect should be to elicit a body-relaxed, mind-alert state which is focused and ready to concentrate.
Launched this year at the Sound Education seminar in London and aimed at raising awareness with students and parents about the value of a positive soundscape, the app can be downloaded for Apple devices.
