Like the concept, which is of course why I installed it, however the accuracy was only about 70% correct. Definitely did not capture coughs that I was aware of, and then would capture several "coughs" when I was moving chairs, opening doors, etc. For the most part, the counts were of enough value that i kept this installed for a day. What caused me to uninstall it was that though the app ran just fine for the first 24 hours, as soon as it went to running in the background it drained my phone battery in about 3 hours, using over 60% of the battery life just for this app. This makes the app completely unusable unless you would be using it with the phone plugged in next to a stationary person. If that is the case, it may be better to design an app for an Amazon Echo or Google Home as those objects are already designed to be listening all the time and are used plugged in.

A very straightforward and helpful app, however after the first day of use, it seems to be detecting coughs a lot less. It also picked up background noise from a guy talking in a YT video as coughing. Maybe letting users recalibrate the app would help.
