I installed it running 10.3.2 and it does mask all the fan noises and the hideous sounds coming from downstairs. I had to turn it up as loud as I could stand it to drown everything out though, and I could still faintly hear a helicopter going over and it didn't mask a jet passing over at all. It did nothing in either pink or white to diminish the sounds from my strat-playing roommate altho I didn't try it at max volume. The sound is like endless rain pouring down, or like television static. The white noise is rather pleasant while the pink noise made me feel a little twitchy. An elegantly simple interface and a nice little desktop window with a slider controls the volume or silences the app. It's not perfect, but whaddya want for free. Anything that totally eliminates fan noises is cool.

Still works great on my Lion OS X 10.7! Thanks Balthamos for convert it into UB, and thanks the original developer for this nice little app for free.

When I first downloaded this, I used it for the same reason that most people use it for --- to drown out distracting noises. But then I had a baby. A very colicy baby. This program stops her crying & keeps her sound asleep better than anything I've ever seen! As soon as I turn it on & crank it up, my daughter stops crying. And it keeps her from waking up at night (I turn it down once she's asleep). It works faster than the kitchen fan/vent and it uses less electricity than the vacuum!

I used this on my PowerBook G4 all the time, but I've got a MacBook now and can't use it! Would a Universal Binary be very hard?

I love this program. It uses no resources, runs seamlessly in the background, and actually does what it claims. If I'm in a noisy cafe, turning on the pink noise really does cut the ambient noise in half. Also, running Noise while you're listening to music will effectively kill all noise beyond your headphones. I lurv it.

This is a godsend if you have absolutely crippling ADD. I sat and read a book last night with this in the background. Normally I have to seclude myself to focus that long. It'd be nice to have more options. It's often remarked that pink noise sounds a lot like ocean surf, it'd be nice to oscillate the channels, vary it up a little bit, just to make for more convincing ocean sounds.

All the other reviewers have completely missed the point. This is for sleeping. White noise masks out the irregular sounds like barking dogs, trains, etc that can wake you from sleep. Magazines like Sharper Image are filled with appliances that do the same thing but cost $50. This is a light sleeper's best friend.

Kind of cool... Does what it says... but then you have to listen to the loud pink noise sound that's almost as annoying as background noise. I don't really see the point/need/use.
