For the insomniacs and city dwellers of the iPhone community, a free app called Relax Melodies can create a soothing medley of noises that can inspire a short nap or long slumber. The app boasts 41 sounds from “Cat Purring” to “Icy Snow,” and users can choose either to combine noises or listen to one at a time. Conversely, the app can also be used to help its user stay awake or maintain concentration – even create an ambiance perfect for a yoga session at home or in the studio. You can also store favorite combinations of sounds in a folder. The app won’t shut down on its own, so you’ll be able to wake up to the same calm ambiance you fell asleep to. (Just watch your battery power.)
