With the app you can use dosimeters:
1 - have the ability to directly connect to the audio jack of the smartphone;
2 - connected to the audio jack of the smartphone through a matching device.
Details pairing dosimeter with your smartphone described in http://foxylab.com/GeigerCounter.php?en#matching.
The complex of dosimeter and Android-smartphone with the app GeigerCounter allows you to quickly and accurately assess the level of radiation in open areas and in the rooms.
The application allows continuous measuring the count rate (in counts per minute, CPM) and determines the average, minimum and maximum values of the counting rate. To stabilize the readings used an algorithm for calculating a moving average with a window size of 15 minutes.
Also, the application determines the geographical coordinates of the smartphone.
Measurement protocol is saved in a file in the folder /GeigerCounter on the SD-card smartphone.
Minimum screen resolution – 480 x 800.
It uses a Fast Fourier Transform algorithm to implement high precision A, B, C and Z weighting filters and sophisticated digital signal processing techniques to achieve the best possible SPL readings out of your Android phone or tablet.
It displays the current, maximum and minimum values in decibels, and generates 3 kinds of sound pressure level versus time charts. The display can be turned upside down to allow pointing the mic at the sound source.
### Please calibrate before the first use! ###

This is a real working radioactivity counter. You only need a BLACK TAPE to cover the lenses !!
Disclaimer: The type of radiation picked up by the camera can be dangerous/detrimental to the user's health as well as cause damage to the device.
Its NOT a JOKE! The App is using the camera sensor to detect radiation, like a geiger mueller counter, of course with a smaller area. We tested several mobile phones at the Helmholtz research facility in Munich, using a professional radiation device in the range of 2-10 µGy/h till 1-10 Gy/h (CS137 and CO60). The CMOS sensors can detect primary gamma radiation and some higher beta radiation (depends on the shieldings in the mobile phone). Typically not going into saturation as most GM tubes. See FAQ on our homepage for what you can measure and how.
PLEASE SEND US FEEDBACK via EMAIL !! We add new devices in short intervals.
Attention: the tape must shield the light completely. Please check with a light source !
On our homepage you find several measurement result for different devices we tested so far. Some are excellent, some not that sensitive.
Feel free to use our table to assign radiation values to our counter measurements when you have the same device.
The real values might differ as sensors can change. There we need your help and the help of the manufactures for a future calibration service.
You can use the contact button in the help menu to provide us with feedback and please use it.
If you need any help, PLEASE send us an email. We have cannot answer the comment section below, so please ask us first on measurment problems. We help as fast as possible. Please contact us on any problems you have with this application! Look at our videos, more are comming soon. Attention: The counts per minute (CPM) for the background noise should be low (increase the noise setting if not). This is camera noise not radiation noise basically. If the radiation increases then also counts from the radiation adds to the CPM values (see our tables for the sensitivity). If you have a phone with 200 CPM for 100 uGy/h then the background noise produces for 100 nGy/h only 0.1 CPM. That means in 10 minutes ONE counts in 100 minute TEN counts adding to the CPM0 (noise of sensor). So you need a LONG time to measure for low radiation values on this device. Attention: AM241 (smoke detectors) only emit ALPHA rays, they get stuck in the plastic of the phones. H3 (tritium - watches etc) are beta emitters with 45 keV. They also get stuck quickly, mainly already in the watches. K40 (KCL for example contains 16 Bq/g) are beta emitters with small amount of gamma (due to positron collisions)- you need also a long integration time to measure them. Same for TH rods (2% Thorium) mainly alpha rays, then beta and some gamma. Very small diameter ! You need a large area to detect them (best GM with mica windows). The CMOS sensor of the camera only has 2mmx2mm.
Good objects are TH lenses (up to 30% TH232), pitchblend (gamma of decay products) and CS137 for checking food which might be contaminated (if larger 1 uSv/h). Don't experiment with radiation sources !!!

instruction and help:
Advanced features include multiple reference dates, a database of Isotopes with their half life constants and a log file to easily record activities.
(The paid version has facilities to save the log file and edit the isotope database. It also doesn’t have the ad banner.)
Simply long-press the reference buttons to enter reference dates then enter an activity and use Ref1, Ref2 to show the activity decayed to that reference. Use the clock button to show the activity decayed to the current time.
The internet and network status permissions are for the ad banner and are not present in the paid application.
Please note that this Decay Calculator App is provided as is, without any guarantees or warranty. Although the author has tested the application and believes it to be bug free, the author is not liable for any damage or losses of any kind caused by the use or misuse of this application.
The input from the hardware key is possible in the Android version. Can it be a setting, the key arrangement be a numeric keys type or the telephone type be selected.
Because the operation results in a real machine are little, it is free in the beta version still. GALAXY S II is a confirmed operation. The action reporting in various models from everybody is waited for. Moreover, please report by all means when you come by there is a test environment in bluetooth numeric keypad.
The most important part for the detection of the radioactivity is the camera chip of the smartphone. During the measument absolutely no incident light is allowed for the camera. Therefore the camera lens must be sealed e.g. by a black insulating tape. Of course you can keep the lens shut by your finger, but sometimes a little light shines through the fingers. In this case use at least additionally a cloth to shut the lens.
First calibrate the radioactivity-meter for your smartphone-hardware:
a) Fix the zero point where no radioactivity is caught by the smartphone. The zero point must be fixed at the lowest temperature of all future measurements.
b) Measure the radioactivity at a place, where the current radioactivity is known and assign this known gauge value and its unit to the value, measured by your smartphone to establish a relation between the internal hardware-dependent values of the smartphone and the real absolute quantity of radioactivity. The more exact the calibration and the higher the gauge value, the better the measurement results. From then on your radioactivity-meter is able to indicate the current radioactivity.
Due to the different hardware of the various smartphones we cannot ensure, that Radioactivity-Meter works on all smartphones with sufficient accuracy.
Since Radioactivity-Meter uses statistical algorithms to calculate the stochastic noise processes, the measuring situations should be always as similar as possible to avoid deviations of the metered values: same ambient temperature (without the zero point fixing), same up time of the smartphone, same method for sealing the camera lens etc. For this reason only single measurements are possible, no continuous measurements.
That way you can use your smartphone to determine at least the tendency for the changes of the radioactivity radiation.
