This is a real quality app. Dont listen to haters. - There are three surrounding choices. Each has 12-15 samples randomly playing, so there is no repetition. I use Senhheisser hd595 and the sound quality is really good.
App will not run at all! - Pops up in my Menu Bar, but then disappears seconds later. I've even rebooted my Mac for this app, which admittedly I never do, but that did not help the situation. Can't raite it higher until I can at least try it! This is on 10.8.2.

Nice simple app - App is nice and simple. Works as described, hasn't crashed yet. I only wish I could preview what the "Rain Mode" sounds like before I buy it. Twitter: @dmarakowski
CPU hog: Incompatible with 10.9.2 - According to the information provided by the App Store, it lists Elsewhere's as "Compatibility: OS X 10.7 or later”, yet when I reported the app hogging 100% of my CPU, causing my fans to almost constatly operate in overdrive, I was informed by customer service that Elsewhere is not compatible with Mac OS 10.9.2, but that they may add the compatibility in the future. It’s a great, unique idea with almost excellent execution, save for this lack of compatibility with causes CPU and fan issues.
Best in class and responsive support - I've tried several of these, some from the Mac App Store and some not; and I think Elsewhere is the best implementation of an ambient sound app for the Mac. CON: It worked on my laptop one time, then the volume slider broke and the sounds take several minutes to get going—this may be a conflict with one of my other apps though. Limited ambient themes (but in-app purchases of additional sound themes might be the whole strategy—to earn a living I suppose; I'm going to buy the Rain one and I'd pay for one with more birds and…I dunno…bees.) PRO: It works perfectly on my wife's iMac—and when I say perfectly I mean the UI is simple, efficient, and all features of the app work as expected. The ambient themes are excellent; I suppose they repeat but I haven't noticed (and that's the main thing that disappoints with other apps like this—I have tried them ALL). Sound quality is superb. I like the in-app purchase option for more themes and I hope they do more! As for the problem with Elsewhere on my MacBook Pro, I posted a support request via their online form and they got back to me next day. Pretty good support for a free app!
Why i supported you earlier? - I like nice apps in this store. I was using your app for few years and to support yu i bought extension (rain mode). But after a while, you didn’t updated you application and it works awfully on Yosemite. It glitches, creating strange animation effects and totally unusable. Shame that i spend (dont think im greedy) 0,99 on this unworking app. Fix it pls. There’s much better free alternatives in Mac AppStore, but i prefer your, if you fix it.
it does what it's supposed to do - i bought the rain sounds. wish there were a running brook. other than that, I'm happy with my purchase.
