Coffee shops are great places to unwind and get some free Wi-Fi, but all the bandwidth in the world can be ruined by someone being a noisy jerk. I usually start blasting music through my headphones whenever that happens, but that isn't always the most ideal situation, especially if I'm trying to study or work.
Noizio, on the other hand, is a white noise generator that lives in your Mac's menu bar, allowing sanctuary in even the loudest of rooms.
Noizio won't start playing immediately. Instead, you will have to pick which sounds are played and how loud they will be. From the menu bar popup, you can choose any of the 8 ambient noises and their corresponding volume level. Once you have the noises set up, you can start them by pressing the play button.
If you'd rather have the entire process automated, you can enable both "Start at Login" and "Play after Launch" from the Noizio's settings menu (gear button).
Now you'll be able to work on essays or code to your heart's content wherever you are, sans noisy and distracting environments.
