White noise apps can help if you are the light sleeper type that can get woken up by random noises in the night. Mostly for me, I run a box fan to drown out unwanted noise. When my insomnia is bad it helps because after I fall asleep I can usually stay asleep. Thankfully though I haven’t had insomnia troubles for a while. When I travel, that’s when I use the white noise app, though occasionally I will use both my box fan and something like wind chimes from my white noise app for funzies.

In case anyone is curious, the app I use is simply called White Noise…I believe it’s by tmsoft and I only know about the iphone version. It may not be the best, but it has been reliable and they just recently added a bunch of new sounds. If anyone else has white noise apps they use feel free to suggest some!
