Sounds Annoying: Audible Gags Get a Makeover

Sounds Annoying iPhone App Review

If you’ve ever worked in an office with uptight people, had a sleeping sibling who definitely had it coming, or simply felt the urge to annoy someone, you need the Sounds Annoying iPhone app from HC Apps.


During my iPhone app review I found Sounds Annoying to be a comprehensive collection of sounds that packs a lot of punch in a compact, cost effective package.

There are thirteen different sound categories in the Sounds Annoying iPhone app: alarm, animals, bodily functions, environment, instruments, object, people, strange, synth, tools, transport, vocal and war.

It’s refreshing to find a sound app with that much variety. Multiple sounds in one app means you can save time and space on your iPhone, and probably even a little cash. In fact, some of these sounds aren’t even that annoying, like the ocean sound or the cat purring. Others are definitely grating. I think my vote for most annoying sound is between wet fart and baby sobbing.

Unique loop, stop, filter, pitch and volume features make all those crazy sounds customizable. So go ahead, set the alarm clock sound off, then filter it to make it sound like a clock buried under a pillow. Watch your target tear up the room looking for the alarm clock.

Is it an original concept? Not even a little. But extra controls and a lot of variety keep the Sounds Annoying iPhone app from falling flat.


User Interface:

The majority of Sounds Annoying’s content is organized on one big long page of tracks with a control panel on the top and an advertisement bar at the bottom. Tap the name of a particular sound to hear it, then adjust the volume, pitch and filter at the top of the page.

I do like the option to arrow through sounds by subheading, but wish there was a faster way to navigate the screen. It can take a little time to get from animal sounds to war sounds, and if you’re trying to pull off a prank it might be time you don’t have.

So the UI could definitely do with a few upgrades, but still gets the job done.


I already mentioned ad support, so you won’t be surprised that the Sounds Annoying iPhone app is free to download and enjoy. However there is an optional in app purchase of Sounds Annoying Pro for $.99 which gets you extra sounds, a record option, playlist options and no ads.

If you want a cheap app to pick on the audio sensitive folks in your life, you want Sounds Annoying. If you are dedicated to your annoying craft, spend a buck and let mayhem reign.
