Solid app, no iffy permissions, works out of the box and doesn't represent cellphones as being a reliable tool. It would be nice to have an alternate set of descriptive levels that reflect OSHA and other worker safety guidelines, which are reducing exposure times at increasing noise levels, described in OSHA 1910.95(b)(2)
I was expecting ads with a free app, and while they're only slightly obtrusive, I found myself wanting for an ad-free paid version. The app itself works fine--I like the ability to switch between light and dark themes--although without a proper sound level reference, I'm not sure how accurate the results are. At the very least it's a good objective measure of relative sound levels. Any movement right near the microphone, or touching the phone itself, will throw off the results a bit.
It's brilliant. Helps on getting some close guidance of noise level but most important I do show it to my wife how much she shouts (Does work). Love it (I mean the app)
Ain't technology great (sometimes)? I do like this app. It helps me measure sound levels with some sort repeatability. Nutters in the flat under ours keep complaining about my bedside radio! So I have some sort independent verification. THANKS.
Tried other free apps like this and they where pretty much a waste of time. Been trying to sound proof a room and showed a drop in levels. And helped to show where to place sound deading materials. So i would recommend this app. Its free and works. Ads are ads but not in the way and not a pain.
Very straightforward and quite accurate. Good enough for my industrial noise level evaluations and mitigation projects. At the end of the job we just verify the sound regime with an Industrial Hygienist. So far, no issues of note.
