Beware of the coffee shop!

I stumbled upon a research from Ravi Mehta, Rui (Juliet) Zhu, and Amar Cheema published by The University of Chicago Press in December 2012 showing that ambient noise can affect and have positive effects on creativity and productivity.

I soon discovered that ambient noises really affect my creativity and began to practice it more and more. The problem I soon faced was that I wasn't able to be in a Café all the time because it is (let's face it) pricy and because it was too loud from time to time which had negative effects on my productivity.

So I created an app that enables you to turn on an recorded Café environment sound everywhere you are. The app also works in the background, so you can overlay it with your music of choise. You can set the volume of the creative noise underneath the play/pause button on the “Newspaper/Info” bar where you also get some more information on how it works and how to set it just right.
