I have had tinnitus for 16 years. For those of you just starting with this condition I send you my full support!. My struggle has been hard and have had some very dark days, but I decided just two years ago that I needed something to help me cope better. With that in mind I have developed - and am still fine tuning a Masking App that I can use for every day - and set preset masking noises for various daily uses. I would dearly love your feedback if you can try it out for me. It is only available on iPhone at the moment, but hope to have an Android version very soon.

The idea came to me when I was actually in the gym. I had a masking noise on my iPhone and was playing music over the masker - when I suddenly found that the music was much more clear and that my tinnitus had reduced down to a level that was barely noticeable - I could have cried!. The only problem was I couldn't store the masking noise or volume and I couldn't save the music that was playing at the time!. If I cold have done that I would have found my ultimate masker!.
That is my aim - to be able to preset the app, so that when I do find the "eureka" moment again, I can quickly save the masker and the music, so that I have a "go to" saviour when days get very bad.
I would love to have your feeback and any comments from the community.
