    Pros: 

    High quality original sound recordings in a beautiful UX allowing for remixing into new sounds. Great library of sounds to draw from.

    Cons: 

    There is almost too much choice and too much beautiful icons in soundly, discovery is a challenge.

    I've been using soundly for several months now, almost daily for focus music as well as meditative background music while I'm in airports, transit, etc. Soundly provides a sound track for my life. :) The playlist feature also allowed me to make an audible POMODORO feature, where the sound changes after 24 minutes to a 5 minute break sound and then back, this has been a game changer for productivity.

  • Pros: 

    - it just works - I’ve got great results with the focus and sleep modules - beautiful UI - use is easy and intuitive

    Cons: 

    - I’d love to see some more sounds, but I’ve seen there is an option in the app to make suggestions, so I’m gonna use that ;-)

    Before I started using Soundly about a month ago, I had already been using Pzizz for years (especially the focuscapes and dreamscapes) and it was one of the best apps of that sort that I’ve tried (I also like brain.fm and focus@will, but just found myself using Pzizz more often). So I already had HUGE trust in the team behind Soundly and have not been disappointed after using the app for about a month now. I love that with Soundly we now have the possibility to combine the soundscapes we got to love in Pzizz and some exciting new ones and, as usual, the look and feel of the app is great - I’m a big fan of essentialism and this is something this app gets just right. There is no clutter and it’s very easy to navigate. It’s a pleasure to use it (and makes studying and working more fun!). Please keep up the great work! :)

More and more, people are using music in very specific ways: to help pump themselves up at the gym, to focus at work, and even get better sleep. This new genre of music — “Functional Music” — is quietly soaring in digital popularity. You can find it dispersed across Spotify playlists, Youtube videos, popular meditation apps — it’s all over the place. And frankly, it’s been all over the place for thousands of years. Chain gang work songs, the rain dance, religious worship, battle hymns; purposeful music has nearly always been a part of human culture in one way or another. But over time we’re getting better at understanding how music can influence our bodies and minds. There’s been a big uptick in research and development over the past few decades in how to use audio to optimally influence a person’s physiology. For years we’ve been pushing the boundaries of functional music with Pzizz, our app that helps people beat their insomnia and get great sleep. We write pretty extensively about the Science behind Pzizz, and spend an enormous amount of time turning research into reality. Our formula has proven pretty successful for Pzizz. But sleep isn’t the only area functional music can help with. And that’s why we’re introducing Soundly. While Pzizz will continue to be sleep focused, Soundly will expand into a variety of areas including relaxation, meditation, focus, anxiety, stress reduction and a whole lot more. 31 Awesome Features of Soundly: https://blog.pzizz.com/29-awesom...
Been a Pzizz user for 2009 — and so I'm interested and excited for this new addition to the Pzizz family... offering more fine-tuned control and creativity for sleep playback sessions!
Use soundly daily! Highly recommend for the beautiful UI and high quality sounds.
I have used Pzizz for years as recommended by a physician for sleep issues.. Soundly has taken everything I loved about Pzizz, expanded it, and made it more flexible and easy to use. I use Soundly almost daily with excellent results for sleep, meditation, and just relaxing. It’s a great stress buster. And it’s just beautiful. You can tell a lot of love and consideration of the user experience went into creating this app.
@franfriel Thank you Fran! A ton of love went into this, I'm glad you feel it shows!
@rockwellshah It’s apparent in every element, Shah. Thank you creating parable beauty with amazing functionality!
Would love to try this out but am a lowly android user. Is there at least a web version coming anytime soon?
@dkb868 We're building the Android app right now :)
@rockwellshah Didn't see any android signup list / waitlist on the site. Maybe you can add one to collect some emails?
