      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!

          • 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.

            • make a desktop version so I can hear this on my computer also :)

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

                • Add Small Widget to quickly turn on and off a few options like the alarm.

                  I use the alarm only 5 days a week and would like to be able to quickly turn it off and on. A small widget would be nice to access those options.

                    This may be dealt with until the multiple alarms feature we are working on….

                    • Quick access to Sleep Timer

                      Nice to be able to press the minutes left on the sleep timer on main screen to reset the timer for additional minutes or to shut it off without having to go through the menus.

                        Maybe some heavy, crashing waves... blowing winds, lanyards clapping on flagpoles...

                          • New Pack: ASMR-triggering sounds for relaxation

                            Some people get relaxation from particular sounds that cause Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. People who have this ability can get waves of relaxing tingling. Some trigger sounds include: soft whispers, paper rustling, doing certain actions such as writing on paper, getting a haircut. (see http://www.vice.com/read/asmr-the-good-feeling-no-one-can-explain)

                                I'm initially thinking 8-bit, but I think it would even work with modern sounds.

                                Have a background soundtrack going and some sound effects that randomly play, as if there's someone behind you jumping on Goombas and collecting coins!

                                  great idea Lysol!

                                  i’ve been playing with this idea in my head for a while now actually, that is, an 8-bit ‘retro’ pack …

                                  will probably add something to Cubicle Pi first to see what people think though. no idea when, but look out for it down the road.

                                • Add the sound of buzzing bumble bees.

                                  The soothing sound of bumble bees added to crickets, birds and other summer sounds would make a wonderfull addition!

                                    You have locomotive sounds, but not Light Rail (love to hear one approaching, and ringing it's little bell).

                                    • New Pack: Spaceship Engine Rumble

                                      The background hum/rumble of big machines is incredibly soothing. I'd love to see a pack with the background idling sound of ST:TNG's engines, mixed with the light tweedle of computer systems doing their jobs. (There are youtube videos of ST:TNG idle noise) Then, too, heavy air conditioning systems and some machines make a wonderful low tone. Sometimes I go into UT2k4's maps and listen to the mechanical systems hum and rumble deliciously. This would also be a good noise cover in working environments.

                                      • provide a custom timer option.

                                        I want to be able to set LB to go to sleep an hour or two before I wake up, which is greater than the 180 minute maximum that the timer currently allows. It would be great if you could allow a user-defined sleep timer duration.

                                        • Add tap to speak time on clock display.

                                          It would be nice to just tap the clock display and hear the time, so I don't have to stretch my neck to see it.
