iPhone App Review: Ambinator

iPhone App Review: Ambinator

April 26th, 2010 by

Ambinator is an app that plays high quality ambient sounds for the purpose of meditation, relaxation, or background noise for traveling. This app is simple and straight forward with the features that it offers the user.

Ambinator pros:

By using this app I notice how much time must have gone into the idea and implementation of the Ambinator. It has a floating ball in the center of the screen that maneuvers around the screen to cause the sounds to evolve and change over time. You can also manually maneuver the floating ball to mix the sounds up at your continence. The Ambinator has preloaded arrangements that you can listen to or you can customize the sounds by adding from a bank of individual sounds. One big positive thing that I notice about this app is that the sounds are very high quality and it is not just a loop of the same old stuff over and over.

Ambinator Cons:

One big con is that this app costs $1.99 and that is about $1.99 over what it should be. There is absolutely no reason that I saw that this app couldn’t be free and simply make money from its sponsors. This reason alone would cause me to not suggest this app for the average user.

This app is well put together and well thought out. I was not impressed however with its seemingly unwarranted price. I would only recommend this app to someone who really enjoys ambient sound generators and is looking to drop and unnecessary $1.99.


– Controls look and function good
– Sounds are customizable
– Ambient sound is high quality


– Cost is overboard

I give this app a 4/10 because no matter how good it sounds it is WAY over priced for an app of its category.

    I love it.. The soothing sounds I turn on and use when I get stressed at the office. The price is fine. More options of sound are suppose to be coming. I can hardly wait. How about some jungle meditation sounds? Also some more relaxation-mood sounds. Sounds different but I know that I would like it. I am patiently waiting. I love it.

    The next option down is $1, which leaves between 60 and 65 cents to the developer after Apple takes its 30% share.
    Be kindly reminded that writing software is a skill, a trade, and deserves compensation. How much did you pay for your iPhone again?

    I urge you to revisit this review: aren't you supposed to give your opinion on quality, ease-of-use, beauty, attractiveness, simplicity, intuitiveness, etc. I am disappointed. I think the price is (a) not an aspect you should discuss, (b) not something that should affect your score.

    In my world, 3 pros and 1 con makes a score of 7.5 out of 10.
    One more thing: please sign your reviews.
