Sneak Peek: White Noise Market 7

TMSOFT is releasing a huge update to our popular White Noise Market mobile app that promises a much better experience.  We know the saying, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” but here at TMSOFT we feel there’s always room for improvement. We’ll be releasing this new update soon, but we wanted to give you a sneak peek into the brand new White Noise Market app.

Improved Experience

One of the most popular features of the current Market app is the scrolling chatter view that allowed users to experience audio previews of each sound.   We are bringing this experience across the entire application including the Featured, Recent, and Category tabs.  This replaces the old grid view that didn’t offer audio previews of each sound.

New scrolling view with audio previews

Not only can you see larger images of each sound (no more squinting to see the contents of little squares in a grid layout), but the list will now automatically pull in new content as you scroll.  In the previous version, you had to tap “load more” when you reached the end of a sound list. Now it’ll automatically load as you scroll.  We think you’ll really enjoy this new feature.

As you scroll the list of sounds you’ll be able to experience an audio preview of each sound, but there are times when you might want to toggle this behavior.  Audio previews could always be changed from the settings screen, but now it can be toggled right from the view itself.  Just tap the speaker icon to mute and unmute the audio previews.

Map Improvements

Are you looking for specific sounds based on location?  The world map of recordings now supports dynamic updating while you interact with the map.  That means you’ll be able to scroll and zoom into a specific area of the world and get access to all of the unique sounds that our users have recorded.  It really is incredible to see the amazing sounds that everyone in the White Noise community is sharing.

Larger View Area

The banner-style ad found at the bottom of the screen has been removed.  Yeah!  This opens up the viewing area so you’ll be able to see more content.  We believe this, combined with the new scrollable view, is going to make this version your favorite.  You’ll see less ads in this new experience and the ads you do see will be less obtrusive.

Stay tuned for more posts about White Noise Market as we dig a little deeper into the features of this unique app! But first, we’re curious… what are your favorite features?
