  1. Create an option to save several of your own favorite custom sound combinations

    I like to create my own layered sounds, but it would be nice to be able to save them to my phone for future use. For example: My Sleep Mix and My Meditation Mix

        we get asked this all the time, and it’s really flattering! unfortunately we don’t have plans for any platforms other than Android at the moment.

        this could change though. we’re working really hard on a lot of great new features for Lightning Bug. once we get those done, we’ll have some time to think more about iphone, windows, blackberry, flash, etc!

              • allow multiple alarms

                would be good if you could create more than one alarm and set which days alarms should be active. just like standard device alarm clock. PLEASE!

                  This is definitely planned and we hope that it will be included in the next 2-3 releases!

                • Separate Background Images from Sounds.

                  Create a new area with a customizable list of setups. Through the menu new setups can be created or deleted. On each setup you can customize your sounds as now, but can also customize your background image without needing to reset sounds.

                  So in the list you could have 'My Daytime Theme' with a sunny picture and uplifting sounds. Then you could separately create 'My Nighttime Theme' and have a darker image, quieter night-time related sounds. The Theme is no longer tied to a specific picture.

                    I'd really love to have this on my computer also. It would be great for nights when I stay up late writing away :)

                            • camping pack

                              First off... love the app. Great job! I would like to suggest a camping pack. There is already a good campfire. Add more traditional owl (hoot or barn), coyote, mosquito buzz, wind in pines, fish jumping in lake, raccoon, locust, a lonesome bob white call, and an animated burning campfire background. Will match well with night time ambiance, crickets, and frogs. Hoping to hear this one soon.

                                  I would like to see the time my alarm is set for on the main screen. Showing it right under the bell would be great. I change the wake up time frequently and being able to see at a glance if I have it set correctly would be awesome. Having to go into settings and scroll down every time is a bit cumbersome.

                                        Sound of rain hitting window and window sill.
                                        Much more clean then pouring rain, I think it will sound better and be more cozy.

                                        • whale song pack

                                          As I mentioned in a Market review, I'd love to see a mix that included whale songs and maybe some deep water sounds to go along with it. My mom and I used to sleep to a whale songs tape when I was a kid. It was quite popular then.
