My favorite 5/5
I just upgraded to this app after my old decibel meter app was no longer supported for the current iOS version. I like the retro look and the app works great.
NO ES MUY ÚTIL. SIN EMBARGO, MIDE EFICIENTEMENTE.
Great app, needs tweaking 2/5
By Candid Arts Photography
This app used to work great, in fact it still does, with one exception. It seems that the buttons are all a bit askew. To tap a button, you must actually tap about 3/8" to 3/4" above where you would expect to tap. This needs an update for that issue and it'll go back to a great app.
Triptastic, Nostalgic 5/5
By Bought the Farm
It does so much, yet it's so simple. The historical graph is super handy, the user interface is so artistically rendered one can almost smell dust baking on hot vacuum tubes. A very welcome contrast to the flat modern look.
It has become my favorite audio tool, combining an spl meter and a historical graph with mad scientist lab-grade look. Top-shelf, this is.
I LOVE this ap!!! 5/5
By Lawdog Lewie
I love the retro look (kind of steampunk). I use the oscilloscope more than the SPL meter but its all cool.
Maximum 105 decibels! Not enough to measure car stereos, airplanes, roller coasters and other loud stuff. They didn't disclose this; I wouldn't have bought it.
Cool and Useful 4/5
This is a very cool app! And, as I read other reviews I began to see real and practical uses that got me thinking as well. So, just how much louder are those dang commercials anyway? :-)
Seriously well worth the 99 cents. Sensitivity control is backwards to my thinking also ...
Problem Solved! 5/5
I am helping out the wife in her Dentist office. Music in the office comes from one of my old iPods. Some playlists are louder than others and she constantly wants the volume adjusted. This app has solved that. I can start a music session, use this to check the level, make the adjustment and no more complaints about the loudness of the music. Super app!
Analog days. 4/5

The oscilloscope is a nice extra.
Useful but poor labeling 4/5
As an SLP, my spouse uses this app as needed to measure the speaking volume of her clients. Seems to work well enough for that. I've used it to measure the volumes of lecturers and ambient noise in rooms. As another reviewer said "sensitivity" should be labeled "dampen" or "attenuate" because it actually DECREASES the sensitivity as you move the dial up Max. You'd actually expect and INCREASE in sensitivity when the dial is Max'd the way the label is currently written. Aside from that issue, we're pleased with the app overall. I'd like to see some functionality added, of course.
Fun and useful 4/5

Anyone looking to add to their steampunk toolbox should check this out. Great graphics, works well.
It works 5/5
By Epal & Oren
I don't have a lab sound meter so I don't know how off is the app's accuracy. But when I compared this to Noise Sniffer, they both get pretty precise result. Precise = similar
Great App 5/5
By Johnny Boy 1
While I'm DJaying, it tells me exactly what I need to know about my sound level. It seems to be very consistent.
Pretty decent App 4/5
Although I didn't find a chance to try this app out on extremely loud noises, it seems
to be fairly accurate or at least in the ballpark for most typical levels of sound.
The only problem I have with it is the panel label that says "sensitivity". The sensitivity knob
should actually be labeled "Damping". If you change the sensitivity of an instrument, you change
the whole scale of readings. Damping just quiets the needle down to give a steadier average reading
which is what this knob does. All in all, I like the app a lot.
not worth it 2/5
By Dustin Prochaska
tested it on my sound system and it just maxes out. not really that cool. i cant calculate how loud it is. it just stops at 111 even with the sensitivity turned down.
