Works with a separate dongle This app will only work with a dongle that can be purchased from Japan or sellers in UK and US. This dongle connects to your phone or tablet over the microphone input. If you want a radiation detector without a dongle, then search for apps that use the camera as an (insensitive) radiation detector. * * * The setup instructions are not very clear. Go to settings, set both thresholds to 1% and trigger to 10 seconds. Start measuring in the "input wave" view. Hold the Pocket Geiger dongle next to a radiation source such as a bag of potassium fertilizer or a smoke-detector ionization chamber. Adjust the settings such that the pulse does not exceed the noise threshold, and crosses the radiation threshold only once. The dongle is not very sensitive to the type of radiation from a smoke detector (americium-241) or potassium, but it is enough to calibrate the thresholds.
Does work, ish It detects Ionized UV rsdiation, which can give u cancer and/or kill you, and also other waves like micro, x, or electro magnet, but u have to cover them camera with non seethrough tape
works good works good but only on phones because tablets it does not go into landscape at this point also no updates?? for a long time like to see back ground color change so not only a sound but also a visual warning... would be great
a bit finicky but this app works with a dongle powered by a 9V battery and only measures alpha radiation. If you didn't buy the dongle from japan then the app doesn't work..duh. Mine confirmed I was getting dumped on by fukushima in Turkey in 2011/2.It also showed friends from Northern Turkey(Black Sea) had 3.86us from Chernobyl It was enough to cause thyroid cancer after 20 years in all of his family.. It also confirmed the arrival of radiation in Australian east coast in 2013 which confirmed the computer models for the Pacific ocean. Rads went from 0.2us to 2.0. the great eastern australian current that year was eerily crystal clear blue...fukushima blue...plankton dead.
Hm.. Nothing special from what I can see, and when you consider the admission of the nsa spying on cell phones. Call me crazy, but last thing I need is another tool that can be easily hacked considering you have to give full permissions to the Mic for this to work. That's just me.
Lies! This app detects noise. Not radiation. Held directly next to hot source and flatlined.
When the 0% noise threshold no longer makes noise detection process.
Detect the presence of infrared radiation with the help of your's phone's camera
Protecting you from radiation even when you are not expecting radiation!
