I've been a developer for about 20 years. I first started building websites, then moving on to creating Flash games. After this, I became a freelance creative developer and won many awards for my work in the advertising industry. Later, I worked for the BBC in the UK, working on the UI for the YouView TV Set Top Box.
I had to do a lot of research into the medical condition Tinnitus before deciding how to create the app. There have been many different treatments tested and I have read dozens of studies. I eventually decided that the 'spectrally notched' audio therapy approach used in my app was a good choice of therapy. This has been researched for years and is a simple, drug-free, and non-invasive way to treat tinnitus symptoms.

- Fit Brick. This is a very handy app that connects to my body scanner scales to tell me not just my weight, but also the percentage of body fat, muscle mass, and even hydration. Its poor reviews are unfair, mainly from people who could not work out how to connect the app to their bathroom scales. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.whb.loease.happyfamily
Another health-related app which helps tracking calories and macronutrients with a handy barcode scanner. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.myfitnesspal.android
- The Money Pouch. I use this app to help me decide which investments to buy and when. It provides trading signals for conservative, balanced and adventurous traders that tell me which proportion of my portfolio should be in each sector every month. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.moneypouch
The first version of the Tinnitus Therapy app took about one month to create. But I am constantly researching this field and make occasional updates to the app in order to improve the therapy or its usability.
In creating this app, I wanted to help the millions of people suffering from tinnitus. I also used to suffer tinnitus, so ambition was also somewhat self-motivated.
There are several ways in which my Tinnitus Therapy app is better than other similar offerings on the market. Firstly, unlike many tinnitus apps which only use noise to 'mask' tinnitus, my app creates a treatment that targets your specific tinnitus pitch (and everyone is different). Secondly, unlike some of the services out there, I do not charge a monthly fee. There are no subscription or hidden charges within my app. Finally, although my app is relatively new to the market, it has already helped thousands of tinnitus sufferers to reduce their tinnitus symptoms.
I will continue to research new developments in the field of treating tinnitus using spectrally notched audio. As and when we learn about ways to improve treatment, I will integrate these into the app. I am currently researching how to target 'atonal tinnitus' and how best to approach treating multiple tinnitus tones at once.
Users can always contact me with questions or feedback about the app. I would only ask that users pass the app onto anyone that they think it could help.
Stop the ringing in your ears with this groundbreaking proven notch therapy treatment.
How does it work?
First, we identify your tinnitus frequency, then we play what is called 'pink noise' with your tinnitus frequency filtered out. Listening to this every day can improve your tinnitus symptoms by forcing your ears to adjust for the missing frequency.
Yes, really. The science behind this new type of tinnitus treatment is backed by years of PhD research. Learn more here: https://www.spikything.com/blog/index.php/2019/02/25/tinnitus-therapy-app
Why get this app?
Unlike similar software available out there, I do not charge a monthly fee, nor impose any restrictions or time-limited trials on the app. I'll also be updating and improving the app as the community learns more about how to improve the therapy.
How to prove it's filtering out frequencies?
To see what the app is doing when it's running, you could use a Spectrum Analyzer, such as this:
