Ever want to cover up those bathroom noises? there's app of something that really does that!
The app is modeled after a device that is commonly found in women's public washrooms here in Japan. That device is called "Oto Hime" (Sound Princess), and it simply masks the sounds that are made when one uses the toilet. Crazy, I know, but it is more or less a standard fixture in public washrooms in Japan. The idea with OtoKun is that you can use it in places where Oto Himes are not commonly found, such as friends houses, older public buildings, etc.
Wow so glad this is a app in America!
Okay so the developer contacted me about this app and i was like WOW a app for this! Then i read the description and they have these in womens bathrooms! I have to review this app.
With otoKun you have four sounds: Water, Birds, some soothing music and bagpipes!
Once you tap a sound it starts playing, tap it again and it will PAUSE it, tap again and it will resume it.
This app has a clean user interface and is very simple. The sounds are nice for covering up the uneed sounds but could use a a little boost in volume for the ipodtouch and iphone. I give this app a 4 out of 5!
