I found this app, and installed it to see what noise level my neighbors have been sending my way. 7 months and I had no way to stop them until now. Most of last night was between 76 and 81 decibels. Our County has a quiet ordinance and now I can prove the noise level. I took screen pics of the levels. This seems simple, easy to use & highly advised for Android phone. I did not realize the damage sound does to our bodies, but I sure do now.

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.

Ads get disruptive to the point making this app useless when you want to urgently measure the noise. At the launch you get a bunch of full screen ads you cannot skip, so by the time you get to the functionality - it's too late. It's like rotating the ads all the time while this app is running wasn't enough, with those full-screen ads you don't get to use the app, but you see the ads instead. Uninstalling this rubbish.
