Windy is all about excellence. Experience crystal clear and clean Taptanium™ certified nature audio, exhibiting absolutely no human made noise intrusions. No people, no airplanes, no traffic whatsoever. Just wonderful nature with infinite playback capability.

Windy is powered by Taptanium™ neural 3D audio™. If you put on headphones, Windy immerses you in a distant world. The nature plays all around you, not just on your ears. Scientists call this externalization, and it's encoded in a way that your brain naturally decodes as if you were there.

Mix and match multiple sounds to your liking by adding some extra rain on a tent, a gurgling stream, crickets or birds. Get the sleep and productivity you deserve.

Windy features relaxing music composed and conducted specifically for Windy in Hollywood.

Windy comes from the creator of Thunderspace, Sunny, Away, Flowing and Rainy.

"Having used Thunderspace previously, I expected a good audio experience and I got one. Wind moves from left to right, right to left, hovers overhead. Sometimes a gust seems far away to the right, other times it's whipping just overhead. It's cool that you can often hear what the wind is carrying, too." — Dave Caolo, TUAW

"Windy is what a pop-up book would look like in the digital age if you were to combine it with IMAX audio." — Gannon Burgett, The Industry

"There’s little question Windy has been carefully crafted – she’s a beautiful thing, with some real talented artists and technologists working behind the scenes here." — Paul Sawers, The Next Web

"I absolutely love the wind sounds." — Christine Chan, AppAdvice
