Ok, this isn't really GAME related, but, its 'entertainment' so to speak.

I keep rolling around in my head: It would be so cool, and with todays tech, to have an app that seamlessly transitions through nature sounds, along with random storms that roll in, and traveling to various areas (like the mountains, or the seas). Why is there not an awesome app already made like this? Half a GB sound clip library with the right coding, would be near perfect!

So I went searching on the Googeplay store (for my Galaxy Tablet), and apples crApp store (for my iPod touch)... and well... I cant seem to find anything right!

All the freebies want access to personal information (yeah right, its a sound generator, frak OFF with needing my personal info!), and all the pay-for ones have zero to no real reviews and I just dont wanna throw money at a complete piece of crap.

So, has anyone out there come across a good app that does this? Do they exist? Am I dreaming? Should I program an app like this myself and sell it?

I have used this one in the past. I don't recall if it made me give up my first born son however.

If you want it done right, then do it yourself.

Program one yourself and charge the most expensive price. People will assume it's the best one because of that and as long as your app does what it is supposed to (play nature sounds) people will be ok with that.
