Sleepy Time is a white noise app that will play the background soundtrack of your choice (or mix of up to three at once!) to shut out external noise, help you relax, and make getting to sleep a little easier. This app is rated 4.5/5 stars across more than 160 reviews, and it’s priced at just $1.49—compared to what you can expect to pay for a white noise machine, that’s a pittance. From Amazon:
