Nice application. A thank needs to go to the developers for explaining limitations, sound level and frequency, in the description. I can verify that on a Nexus 5X, I see no level greater than 90dB, and will unfortunately need to purchase a dedicated sound level meter. Finally, a comment to the developers concerning the UI, with the common symbol for a reset button in the lower left of the gauge, there's no reason to have the ugly text "To reset the values, hold your finger on the middle of the wheel" pointing out a counterintuitive UI design, and the text takes up space that could be made more useful, e.g., a slightly larger graph or a cleaner UI.
Pretty good As a musician I am often concerned about noise levels and this app does a good job at informing. I wish it was a bit more refined though.
Good app Niece to know how loud something is, this app does just that.
Seems to be fairly accurate. I am very happy with it.
I've downloaded this app three times to different Samsung Galaxy S4 phones. It is very useful and I found it to be quite accurate. I have been dealing with land use issues at my business for five years. I have several grumpy neighbors who had been making very wild claims about the noise and vibrations at my site. I've hired a professional audio engineer to do sound studies and I was able to compare the readings of the Sound Meter Pro with highly accurate recording equipment. The Sound Meter Pro was producing readings that within +/- 1 dB relative to the $15,000.00 system the engineer was using. While the app would not be admissible in court and I cannot do 24 hour recordings that can be analyzed later, it does give a very good picture of what is happening in the moment and for brief recordings. An added benefit was finding that there is a vibrometer built into the app as well. This was extremely important in my land use issues as well. I was able to do a quick vibration study at the site that the land use hearings officer found far more compelling than the neighbors across the street claiming that the windows in their houses were rattling.
Very useful tool! I used the sound detector to locate worn out bearings in the engine compartment of my car and it worked!
