When I’m tired, and want some total relaxation I have a new friend…. Windy.  I get out my iPhone or iPad, start up this amazing app, put on my earbuds or headphones, and I’m away.  Developer Franz Bruckhoff ( who has also created Haze & Thunderspace) has created a journey of Windy through 6 scenes and 6 soundscapes, each recorded and enhanced in 3D, so I felt myself drift off effortlessly. The graphics move and drew me in.  The wind was recorded by a pro who’s won an Emmy for his natural sound work.  It’s soo relaxing.  I found I like following along the story of Windy, or I could just close my eyes and relax.  I think once you’ve tried it, you 2 will be pleasantly hooked.
