First, get the Deep Sleep Sounds app, free from the iOS App Store.

If you have an android device search the Google Play store for "White Noise" or "Sleep Sounds" and choose a comparable app.

Step 2: Hook Up an External Speaker (optional)

Depending on your phone or tablet the volume may not be loud enough. If the volume is too soft, attach an external speaker to your device.

I used the following speaker and charger with my iPod touch.

I also created a simple enclosure with an old diaper wipes tub.

Step 3: Enjoy

Experiment with the sounds and speaker setup to fit your style.

I find the Fan or Air Filter sounds are best for sleeping.

I sometimes hook up my headphones and use the Birds and Chimes sounds for studying and the Ocean sounds for relaxing.

Someone left a review stating the Brown Noise attached to an external speaker with deep bass was great for masking snoring but I haven't tried it yet.
