Update. Thanks developer for the explanation of permissions changing my rating to a five. Seems good, doing what its supposed to.. No ads or crazy permissions. Thanks Developers.. Update. I take back the permission comment above it has a permission it doesn't tell u about that allows it to write to external source.. read modify and or delete the contents of the USB storage .. Run es explore and u well see a warning. Dangerous. It would have been perfect has they left that out. Uninstalling..
Extremely useful app, this is easily accurate enough for my purposes. My only criticism is that, when zooming in on the graph, the lowest reading is always shown. I would like the graph to stay where I need it. However when paused the readout stays put and can be zoomed freely. Would it be possible for the graph not to reset after hitting play? Great work and many thanks.
Excellent app, very accurate, and has built-in calibration (which is also very accurate). I compared the app's readings to a professional sound meter, and it's right on. The only nitpick: I wish the font/display for the numeric decibel reading were a little larger; these old eyes can't read it without glasses.
It is fine, BUT it restarts capturing of statstics always, when the phone blackens the screen, or some other event appears on the screen. All my data are always lost :( Would be helpful to implement at least some option to prevent sleeping or keep capturing data on screen sleep or some timer, to cature xy minutes in a row. Would be the best ever, if it can capture some audio record as well (on demand). Thanks.
It works well, except the zoom is useless. It always scrolls down to show the 20db line pushing the level where the sound is actually at off of the top of the graph. I want be able to see more detail in the 80-100db range.
By far the best SPL meter app I've tried on Play Store. On my Galaxy S7 the SPL meter tracks within 0.5 dB against my calibrated miniDSP UMIK-1. However, on my Moto G3 it seems totally off. I especially like all the weighing and integrating options, but I mostly use LAS, LAeq, LCS and LCeq. The RTA function has a lot of potential, but I think no smartphone mic is flat enough for such a job. We need an option to calibrate each octave/3rd octave band against a reference mic. Then we could tune any sound system on the go without manually applying offsets. Oh, and I love the forever averaging option for the RTA! But if the app goes in the background or the screen turns off, we lose all measurement data. This shouldn't happen. It should either auto-pause on refocus or continue adding samples to the existing data set. Big thanks for giving it away with no ads whatsoever!
