How do you feel about people who snore during sleep? How do you think they feel about you, if you do snore? More than one hundred years, the humanity struggles with this seemingly nonthreatening disease, and almost all of the methods were reduced to disturbing the snoring person a little, after which he or she ceased to produce this terrible sound. Some people start to whistle, some just swear, and someone manages to pick up something soft and big and throw it to the one who interferes with the sleep.
However, after some time, the situation is usually repeated and the snoring reappears. You can, of course, tie a slipper with an elastic band to your arm and throw it all night long at the one who manages to sleep and make noise at the same time, but, firstly, this is not humane, and secondly, you will anyway fail to sleep in this situation. The developers of the Snore.NOT program have not gone too far and use the same method of bothering the snoring person with extraneous sounds.
Controlling and settingsYou only need to run the program, adjust the threshold noise level (in decibels) at which it will operate, and the volume of sounds. That's it! The smartphone can be blocked and it will cope with its task even in the locked position. In the catalog of the application, there is a lot of sounds, and some of them are not only electronic, but also cries, whistles, thunder (that is, the sounds of natural origin). By the way, the volume of the output sound can be adjusted both in the program itself and with a slider, but not in parallel and in succession.
This means that, if you set the maximum volume on the smartphone with a mechanical volume button, then at your disposal in the program settings there will be available the entire volume range, and if an average volume is set on the smartphone, the program will not give you the full sound capacity even at maximum volume settings. The application can be considered truly useful, since many people do not get enough sleep because of the snoring of their soulmate, and feel frustrated all day. Perhaps, some of you think that the program is of little use because it will wake up someone who is sleeping next to snoring person.
ResumeYes, such a scenario is not excluded, but, firstly, a peacefully sleeping person anyway wakes up in case of snoring, and secondly, he or she will still have to do something to stop the neighbor from snoring. At the same time, the application will do everything all by itself, and you may even not hear it, because soft sounds while half asleep are perceived only at a subconscious level. In the menu, there is statistics, so you can track how many times it rescued you or your neighbor at night. The Snore.NOT interface is so simple that even old people will manage to sort it out, so you can install it right before bedtime and don't have to spend time to study it. The free version works fully, but in its catalog you can select only three sounds.
