Whether you want to relax because you are going to bed or because you want to get into the right mood for work, you could always use spending some time outside and listening to nature. Here to help bring those sounds to your computer is a service called Calm.
Calm is a web application that helps computer owners relax while they work. The website plays nature’s peaceful sounds for you to relax. All you have to do is visit the site’s homepage and you will start hearing the sounds being played. The sounds will depend on the site’s background shown which ranges from the mountains to a river side. Volume controls and the option to play the next set of sounds are placed in the bottom right corner of the website.
There are also timers present on the website for which you can play the sound for a specific period. There are three timers shown – one for 2 minutes, one for 10 minutes, and one for 20 minutes. Apart from the web interface the website also has a smart device application that is compatible with iOS devices. The app is sized at nearly 41 MB and it requires your iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad device to be running version 5.0 or later. The phone app performs the same function: it provides you with various time durations for which to play peaceful sounds of nature.
