soundscape app

iOS & iPadOS

Hello all,
I am looking for an app to use while I am excersising that will simulate different soundscapes. For instance it might simulate being in a urban area like New York city. It would let me choose different soundscapes as well. I use an excersise bike and I thought it might be nice to be able to use something like this to help me imagine being in different areas while excersising. I hope I am explaining myself correctly. LOL.

While it doesn't have cities, the best sound scapes I can think of, and the most variety of them, is an app called nature space. The app itself is free, and comes with six free sounds, the rest you can buy as you want/need them. There are also packages and things you can buy. I use nature space for everything, from getting into the feel of a book, to going to sleep, to staying focused and calm. I swear they are the best sounds i've been able to find, and there is a sound for everything, maybe even your running. The other thing I would suggest is a game. While it has nothing to do with landscaping, Zombies...Run! is a game tht is played in audio. You are running for a base in an apocolipse and are tasked with bringing back certain things, and you get bits of the story inter sperced with music of your choice. The acting and story are quite fantastic. While this is primarily geered at runners, I would think this would work for cycling as well. You can probably even put zombies run and nature space together, as nature space allows you to have other audio along side/over it.
Hope this helps.

A big thumbs up for Zombies Run, and I love the idea of using soundscapes with it. I typically use podcasts or music with Zombies Run, but going out for a zombies run, and hearing nature would be a great alternative.

@Greg_Wocher I wasn't a part of this community back in 2016 but your post came up in the "more like this" listing here on the site. I think my app, Travelear, would be great for you. I've been talking with other members of this awesome community and getting feedback on how to make my app better. I think you have a great idea listening to soundscapes on your exercise bike. I'd love to hear if you think my app would work with your workout. Here's the link and let me know!…
