Great radiation detection app 3/3. No.1 radiaton detection app choice choice. Loved it. And also, there should be a customizable (can be renamed, annotated, & etc.) history of detected radiation (max, average, & min detected radiation) that could be sent back to you. You should provide an email address for lengthy reports, suggestions, & etc. like this to to be more exclussive. Strongly recommended to everyone. Thank you very much.
RTFM It's intellectually offensive how many idiots fail at basic instruction reading, the kind of skills you pick up in the first grade. Read how to use this app before giving it a bad rating because it works exactly the way the devs say it works. The only complaint I have is that it takes an awkward two minutes to calibrate before its useful. But its still useful in the end.
Hmm.. On paper, the theory sounds believable.. but in practice not so.. Tried what the dev has suggested but results were very much a hit n miss. Am not radiation expert but perhaps, the dev could suggest some house hold items that we can try this app on that would garner real results. Anyway, great attempt.
Keep Camera Covered You will get a false positive without covering the camera from light during testing as well as calibration. There is a metal semiconductor microchip in the camera that can pick up on gamma radiation, but light radiation needs to be filtered out. What units does the "sum" reading measure in?
It really works! I have worked in nuclear power plants for 25 years. I had my doubts, but this really does work at levels around 3 millirem/hr on my phone. Would love to see some enhancements, but great app!
Works beautifully on Galaxy S4 This has to be the coolest app yet. Ignore the crummy reviews. Most of these are from people who didn't read the developers detailed instructions on this page. I tested with a natural Uranium source and got about 14-20 counts. Fantastic!
*three state: no radiation, low level (from about 10 μGy/h), high radiation level
