If you have problems when using Android 5.x lollipop
Android lollipop introduces an experimental new media player that can cause problems with A Soft Murmur. If you experience stuttering or silence, please try the following:
i) Make sure "Developer options" are enabled on your device. If you have not enabled developer options before, you need to go to Settings > About phone and scroll to "Build number". Tap "Build number" 7 times.
ii) In Settings > Developer options, look under "Media" and deselect the option "Use NuPlayer (experimental)"
A Note About Permissions
The app needs the "Read phone status" permission only to be able to mute playback when the phone rings or is off the hook. The app listens for the phone changing state to ringing, changing state to off-the-hook, and changing state to idle. The app does not collect any other information about phone state, and does not store or transmit any information about phone state.
Download once, listen whenever and where you like. All sounds are stored locally and there are no ads or other network requests.
Smooth Gapless Playback
Other ambient sound apps have annoying gaps or clicks when the player reaches the end of a track and loops back to the beginning. A Soft Murmur plays totally seamless and uninterrupted audio so it never interrupts your focus.
A Soft Murmur will play sounds until you tell it to stop - listen while you browse the internet or listen to music.
Mix together 10 ambient sounds:
• Gusting wind
• Crackling fireplace*
• Coffee shop*
• Singing bowl*
• White noise*
* These six sounds are unlocked with a single in-app purchase
When you activate the Meander function, the app gently increases or decreases the volume of each active sound, creating gentle rolling waves of sound that are never the same twice.
Set A Soft Murmur to fade gently to silence to help you drift into sleep, or set a timer to start or stop playing after a custom length of time. Timers run in the background, even if you user other apps, and show the time left in the notification area. Use timers to transform A Soft Murmur into a versatile productivity app.
Save your favorite mixes and give them names. Switch easily between them whenever you like.
A Soft Murmur lets you share your mixes with friends using Facebook Messenger, Twitter, SMS and hundreds of other apps. If your friend has A Soft Murmur installed they can open your mix in the app. If they don't, they can listen to your mix online.
