Remember those bulky sound machines that you would get at Sharper Image to help you fall asleep? You can forget about those relics from the end of the last century with Ambiance, an iPhone app that plays falling rain drops and chirping crickets from the comfort of your night stand. 

Ambiance succeeds by getting rid of disturbing background noise and replacing it with the soothing sounds of wind chimes or splashing waves on the beach. Best of all, the sounds on the Ambiance iPhone app are fully customizable, and you can download additional sounds for free. No need to buy all those expensive CDs! 

There are hundreds of sounds to choose from.  You can even create an entire playlist to avoid the redundancy of tropical birds and white noise.  Make one playlist for coffee shop work time, and another playlist for your personal spa day.  Other custom options include image backgrounds from your iPhone camera or photo library, which can be assigned to individual sounds.

Hook up your iPhone to your portable stereo to get the full experience while you cook dinner or read a book in bed.  Diminish the horrors of waking up early by using the Ambiance iPhone app as your morning alarm. 

Want to try before you buy?  Check out Ambiance Lite for a limited, free version of the application, found in the Apple iPhone App Store.
