About this app

Sound Meter is in the 4th set of the Smart Tools collection.

Have you ever suffered from the noise of the neighbors?
SPL(sound pressure level) meter app uses your embedded microphone to measure noise volume in decibels(db), and shows a reference.

REMEMBER! Most smartphone microphones are aligned to human voice (300-3400Hz, 40-60dB). Voice calls do not require high-performance microphones.
Therefore the maximum value is LIMITED by manufacturers, and very loud sound(100+ dB) cannot be recognized. Moto G4 (max.94), Galaxy S6 (85dB), Nexus 5 (82dB) ...

See 6th images. I calibrated major Android devices with an actual sound meter (dBA). You can trust the result in routine-noise levels (40-70dB). Please use it as an auxiliary tool.

* Main features:
- Upside down mode
- Level notification
- Line-chart duration
- Material design


* Pro version added features:
- No ads
- Vibrometer
- Statistic menu
- CSV file exporting

* Do you want more tools?
download [Smart Meter Pro] and [Smart Tools] package.

I just now tried a bunch of these, looking for a meter app to help find the correct level that audio should be mixed at, for my recording studio. Sure, I'll calibrate it with an actual meter when I'm finished with renovations but this app is pretty close, if it's not spot on. All the other ones I tried (started from the highest rating down) were way off. They were still only reading 73dB when it was dangerously loud and 43dB when the only noise in the room was a "silent" computer fan.

Seems good so far. I'm collecting evidence for a noise complaint for knocking in my apartment walls. I like the screen shot function. This is the first time ever in actually considering paying for an app. I'll have to get it calibrated to make an informed decision on it though.

Same as all the others, but I wish at least one would measure the same stuff the police do when they come out. I believe they measure the "a" scale @ 50feet for a noise complaint. So this app wouldn't help with trapping a neighbor, NOR making sure I was below noise level allowed.
