A little over a year ago I started using Naturespace: Relax Meditate Escape Sleep (TMA Review) – one of the best ambient nature sounds apps out there. Unique in the way it makes a fully engrossing surround sound experience even through the stock Apple earbuds, it has saved my nerve endings from countless deaths. And as we all know – nerves don’t regenerate. Well, I’m glad to say that shortly before Christmas (yes, I Know I’m a bit late on this but still) the developers informed me that they’d just rolled out a massive update, not only making an additional 15 tracks available for purchase but a few nifty features in the catalogue as well.
In my review my biggest concern was that the individual tracks seemed a bit expensive, especially considering there was no way to test them out beforehand. Of course the later added user review feature helped a bit. That said, to each his own and it’s difficult to rely on other people’s tastes.
Taking all of this into consideration with the latest update, the devs added a Visitor’s Pass (available as a separate product or unlocked automatically once you buy 5 tracks), which allows you to download a shorter non-looping preview versions of any track in the catalogue, giving you a taste before making you hand out the dough.
Additionally collections have been made available for sale along with Limited Time deals, allowing for further savings on acquiring tracks in the catalogue.
