If you often find yourself lying in bed at night, wide awake with your mind racing, then the SleepStream app and its high-end technology will help you leave behind all the stressors of daily life and lull you into a gentle sleep. Available on the iPhone and iPad, this sleep stream 2 app will help ensure you get the sleep you deserve after a hard day's work.
With a carefully curated collection of calming tracks, guided relaxation tracks, pre-sleep meditation & energy sessions, music, and brain wave programs, this sleeping aid app comes with a whopping five hours of audio material so you can try out a variety of tactics to help you achieve your goal of a restful slumber.
Let's explore in detail how this app for sleeping works and what it can do for you, bearing in mind that it has a price tag of $2.99.
The first thing you'll notice about SleepStream 2 is that the sound quality is absolutely phenomenal. Upon investigation, I found out that every single track on this app has been professionally mastered. Whether it's a deep, rich drone, or the waves of the ocean gently pattering against the shore, each sound evokes calmness and peace, as though God himself was singing you a lullaby.
Another unique and wonderful feature of this app is the ability to overlay different tracks to create your own preferential sleep-inducer. For instance, you may combine one of the three free guided meditation tracks with a calming music track, making you your very own sleep DJ!
If you don't want the annoyance of choosing between tracks, you can also use the unique audio engine, which will pick out some sounds at random and put them together for you. This provides you with a new sleep-inducing track each night. You can choose to combine background sounds, overlay tracks, and binaural beats in a variety of ways.
Speaking of binaural beats, this app comes with 51 tracks that can be merged with your sleep track. These beats are proven to increase blood flow and activity in the areas of the brain which are associated with calmness, sleep, focus, and relaxation.
Enjoy a real getaway experience by using the visualizations tool! Pictures and videos with evocative natural scenery will loop while you listen to the audio tracks to transport you into a calmer state of mind.
There is an built-in timer function to help you preserve battery, and an alarm function to wake you up at your preferred time.

There is nothing negative to say about this app
A good night's sleep is one of the best medications for overall health and often neglected by people. It might be worth the small investment of $2.99 to have SleepStream 2 handy on your iPhone or iPad for when you have a particularly difficult time getting to sleep.
