I built this app as a personal project after building Sound School For Dogs.

Most people know dogs are often afraid of thunderstorms and fireworks, but most people do not realise that people can also suffer from a similar condition, known as Phonophobia.

To reduce fear, anxiety, or pain caused by noises, it’s often recommended by doctors to use desensitisation. This is a method of getting used to a sound at very low volume, then gradually increasing it over time.

That’s where Phonophobia Pal comes in. I redesigned the app completely to allow for a better user experience, but also to walk a person through the process of desensitisation.

It allows you to set a duration for your session, select your volume, then choose from over 100 sounds (or record your own), and create a playlist that you can then use to begin your desensitisation session
