Thunderspace for iPhone review: A realistic storm simulator for relaxation

Part of what makes the sounds so realistic aside from the stereoscopic 3D audio, says developer Franz Bruckhoff, is that the nature sounds are from Emmy-award-winning nature sound recordist Gordon Hempton. I'm frankly not familiar with his work, but I can tell you all of the storms sound very realistic in Thunderspace.

One issue I noticed immediately is that you can't set a sleep timer. But Bruckhoff says the feature is coming soon and will be available in a future update.

While this niche app is likely not one you'll use on a daily basis, Thunderspace is great for a little relaxation in the dark with headphones, and the lightning that's timed to precede the thunderclaps makes for a great thunderstorm experience.
