Total rip off

by cringecentral254 on 2020/03/30 14:53
My teacher told me to download the app for a home work because we have to stay at home and I have to pay to do school work. You should not have to pay to have a little fun whistle you do your homework. Disgraceful.
Good app

My review
by maisy ford on 2020/03/25 11:09
I like the app because you can explorer how different sounds have different volumes and how you can just test different sounds and have fun with it
Used for extractor test ( kitchen)
by gunners1989 on 2020/03/14 19:51
I assume it is reasonably accurate. Easy to use and responsive to noise. Gives you clear and easy guidance. Can store recorded files do very usable.
Good... if not for aggressive selling tactics
by greekgoddj on 2020/02/21 22:15
Tried the free version of this and liked it. Liked it enough that I went to buy it and that is where the developer lost me. There are numerous add ons with very similar names that don’t indicate the differences. There is also a subscription option... yet another company trying to tap into this model. This product can’t justify an ongoing cost. Lastly it resorts to pressure sales tactics such as “buy for half price ONLY available for the next *30 seconds*!” Really? You decided to resort to such tactics? So as much as I was keen to buy (yes I do believe the item is worth paying for the developer’s efforts), that sales tactics put me off. Vlad I see others have given similar feedback, perhaps it is worth reconsidering the business side of things 😉
Subscription scheme is a rip-off
by Timloans on 2020/02/20 17:48
Charging a £14.49 monthly subscription fee after the 3-day trial expires, compared to £18.49 for 1 year subscription, and £7.99 one-off charge for 1 month use. Clearly aiming to rip off users who for whatever reason forgot to cancel their subscription after the trial period. Very sneaky!
Over priced rolling contract.

Tricks you into purchasing
by Ryu128 on 2020/02/14 22:09
You get to a screen where the only option is click continue which then purchases the pro version with no option to close or back out. Please avoid and download a more honest app.
It works well

Great App For Noise Measurement
by Ron DG82 on 2020/01/04 19:30
Hi, tried this app and thought it was brilliant. Great at monitoring noise levels without any expensive equipment. All I needed was my phone and the noise source to record the levels. It was great at helping my two boys (Aged 5 & 7) realise how to control the volume of their voices too. Numbers with equivalent noise levels were very insightful.
Awesome

This app shows DB higher as sound is less ,showing -120db when clearly not , the louder the noise the lower the value the quieter the higher the value ,DB a not accurate showing noisy fan as whisper quiet ,maybe its me but no clear straight reading for normal people ,all i want to know is my item too loud that neighbours will be disturbed and cant get that answer here

Pressure Selling
by Dariusaj on 2019/09/15 21:37
Not a bad app, but it just offered me 30 seconds to decide on a “one time offer” to buy pro. This is a dishonest selling tactic (illegal in many countries), and frankly, Apple should (and maybe would) remove this app from the store just for that. Devs, don’t bother replying with some boilerplate bull___t answer; I don’t want to hear it unless you’re actually cleaning your act up.
Unreliable
by s....:123: on 2019/08/24 23:12
Ive used this with view to buying full version. I have severe tinnitus & hyperacusis & need to know noise levels are safe that I'm in. Since recent update its randomly starts showing levels 112db to 124db when there isnt a noise to match it. People around say its not loud & another bd meter says its 62. Its worrying that it throws out these bursts of inaccuracy. Its put me off buying the full 9.99 version. Im giving another app a trial now. Shame as this is easy to read & use, unfortunately inaccurate on times.

Just plane wrong
by Tommypeps on 2019/02/19 06:17
Went to a metal show where the dB level on my dedicated reader was between 98 and 104 during the songs.. this app consistently told me 65 to 87 which one was a huge disparity and two was a waaaay bigger differential.. I thought to myself, it’s fine, it probably needs calibrating. So off I went, changing the response time and increasing the offset in the calibration. I got the peaks close within a 3 dB range ( still not accurate) but couldn’t get the huge disparity to change.. so now I had a range of like 79 -107 and mid song too.. like nothing would change, still a pumping brutal riff but apparently according to this app the riff was now almost the sound of normal conversation... or traffic.. I paid £4.99 for this. Which now I read the comments seems strange, there is seemingly no consistency with the price.. it’s a sub standard product. Dev you can keep my money and I’ll keep the app, hopefully one day you update it.. on a positive note the UI looks great.

Sneaky app payment
by awynthor on 2019/01/16 15:49
Disappointed with app developer with a pop up screen Touch ID purchase after a few minuets use.I need to tell apple about this practice.
Amazing
by Important_reviews on 2018/12/23 17:49
Works the best
Good app, but be careful as accidental purchase of App is too easy.
by sn-reciew on 2018/12/08 11:26
App is great, but the pop up messages can give rise to accidental purchases. Initially I felt quite angry, though got a refund from Apple. Moreover, the developer responded thoroughly, thoughtfully, and professionally. I think he is genuinely trying to build a great app, but is just struggling to stop accidental purchases. These seem the only problems reducing his AppStore rating, and so I am certain that he knows it is in his interests to correct the situation. On the basis that I would prefer to help a developer, than blame him for how easy Apple makes purchasing with touch or faceID I have adjusted my review from 1 to 4 stars. The only reason it’s not 5 stars is the problem around the App purchase design. Which I am sure he will be making efforts to improve.
Beware it tricking you into upgrade
by David Hemming on 2018/11/11 12:26
I was using this App and recording the sound levels, suddenly the screen changed to ask if I wanted to upgrade, I couldn’t see a way to clear the screen so pressed the Touch ID button to close the app, it then thanked me for buying the upgraded version for £9.99 This is not how to sell Apps, I have reported it to Apple and have had the charges refunded. Reply to developer. If you want to sell the Pro version properly then don’t use a pop up system while the free version is being used. It is obviously a trick. The app is very good but no one wants to be cheated into a purchase.
Very dubious marketing practices
by pteron on 2018/11/10 12:21
I like the look of this app, but the pop up after a few minutes with a 30 second countdown offering a one time chance to get a discount on the app is really shady practice - you can't possibly have used it enough to know if it's worth paying for. So it's a no from me.
That's good.
by Carmen_Collins on 2018/10/29 15:46
I use it to measure sound levels at work from time to time. I am a very light user. So it does what I need it for

Tricks you into buying full version! Beware
by Croyk on 2018/07/10 13:39
Make sure you disable Touch ID on your phone as this app is designed to trick you into buying the full version when you open it. If you touch the home button it will go ahead with the purchase. Scam.
Does not work
by wearefoals on 2018/07/09 08:01

Great Sound Monitor
by Jumbo_the_Elephant on 2018/05/12 05:31
This is such a simple application to use and is great for monitoring ambient noise. Keeps you aware of dangerous noise levels and keeps your ears in a healthy environment .
Poor design
by Tunebasher on 2018/05/05 11:19
Keeps trying to upgrade despite the full app being purchased and in the process loses the recording. I wasted hours of effort as a consequence. Don’t bother buying this .
Hard to evaluate
by Matt runner 111 on 2018/01/23 00:26
I appreciate that the makers of this app want to make money, but it is impossible to evaluate it fully as it presents a lock screen prompting the user to upgrade to a paid version, or redirects to the Apple App Store, within 30s of opening.
Professional!
by Bradley Lane on 2017/12/12 14:32
Very nice if you can add frequency with the Decibel Meter Pro should be very helpful if someone can see what HZ he is speaking thanks for your time.
App purchase required
by Credited on 2017/10/31 12:46
Keeps covering the meter reading screen with a page trying to get you to buy the pro version. Don't mind saying no once- but not everytime I use it. Sorry- good app but being spoiled by upgrade prompt.

Total rip off
Worst
by cringecentral254 on 2020/03/30 14:53
My teacher told me to download the app for a home work because we have to stay at home and I have to pay to do school work. You should not have to pay to have a little fun whistle you do your homework. Disgraceful.
Good app

My review
by maisy ford on 2020/03/25 11:09
I like the app because you can explorer how different sounds have different volumes and how you can just test different sounds and have fun with it
Used for extractor test ( kitchen)
by gunners1989 on 2020/03/14 19:51
I assume it is reasonably accurate. Easy to use and responsive to noise. Gives you clear and easy guidance. Can store recorded files do very usable.
Good... if not for aggressive selling tactics
by greekgoddj on 2020/02/21 22:15
Tried the free version of this and liked it. Liked it enough that I went to buy it and that is where the developer lost me. There are numerous add ons with very similar names that don’t indicate the differences. There is also a subscription option... yet another company trying to tap into this model. This product can’t justify an ongoing cost. Lastly it resorts to pressure sales tactics such as “buy for half price ONLY available for the next *30 seconds*!” Really? You decided to resort to such tactics? So as much as I was keen to buy (yes I do believe the item is worth paying for the developer’s efforts), that sales tactics put me off. Vlad I see others have given similar feedback, perhaps it is worth reconsidering the business side of things 😉
Subscription scheme is a rip-off
by Timloans on 2020/02/20 17:48
Charging a £14.49 monthly subscription fee after the 3-day trial expires, compared to £18.49 for 1 year subscription, and £7.99 one-off charge for 1 month use. Clearly aiming to rip off users who for whatever reason forgot to cancel their subscription after the trial period. Very sneaky!
Over priced rolling contract.
by 7tees on 2020/02/15 09:06
Over priced rolling contract. Too costly in any terms - app is functional.
Tricks you into purchasing
by Ryu128 on 2020/02/14 22:09
You get to a screen where the only option is click continue which then purchases the pro version with no option to close or back out. Please avoid and download a more honest app.
It works well
by lifesabout on 2020/01/18 08:42
For a iPhone app it’s brilliant,I tried two others before this one only worked half the time the other the readings were way off .
Great App For Noise Measurement
by Ron DG82 on 2020/01/04 19:30
Hi, tried this app and thought it was brilliant. Great at monitoring noise levels without any expensive equipment. All I needed was my phone and the noise source to record the levels. It was great at helping my two boys (Aged 5 & 7) realise how to control the volume of their voices too. Numbers with equivalent noise levels were very insightful.
Awesome
by Noah_xoxo on 2019/11/25 17:52
Best app ever!
Can’t be tested without agreeing to subscription.

This app shows DB higher as sound is less ,showing -120db when clearly not , the louder the noise the lower the value the quieter the higher the value ,DB a not accurate showing noisy fan as whisper quiet ,maybe its me but no clear straight reading for normal people ,all i want to know is my item too loud that neighbours will be disturbed and cant get that answer here
Bloat.

Pressure Selling
by Dariusaj on 2019/09/15 21:37
Not a bad app, but it just offered me 30 seconds to decide on a “one time offer” to buy pro. This is a dishonest selling tactic (illegal in many countries), and frankly, Apple should (and maybe would) remove this app from the store just for that. Devs, don’t bother replying with some boilerplate bull___t answer; I don’t want to hear it unless you’re actually cleaning your act up.
Unreliable
by s....:123: on 2019/08/24 23:12
Ive used this with view to buying full version. I have severe tinnitus & hyperacusis & need to know noise levels are safe that I'm in. Since recent update its randomly starts showing levels 112db to 124db when there isnt a noise to match it. People around say its not loud & another bd meter says its 62. Its worrying that it throws out these bursts of inaccuracy. Its put me off buying the full 9.99 version. Im giving another app a trial now. Shame as this is easy to read & use, unfortunately inaccurate on times.
First class app

Great app design. Works great, what more can I say.
Just plane wrong
by Tommypeps on 2019/02/19 06:17
Went to a metal show where the dB level on my dedicated reader was between 98 and 104 during the songs.. this app consistently told me 65 to 87 which one was a huge disparity and two was a waaaay bigger differential.. I thought to myself, it’s fine, it probably needs calibrating. So off I went, changing the response time and increasing the offset in the calibration. I got the peaks close within a 3 dB range ( still not accurate) but couldn’t get the huge disparity to change.. so now I had a range of like 79 -107 and mid song too.. like nothing would change, still a pumping brutal riff but apparently according to this app the riff was now almost the sound of normal conversation... or traffic.. I paid £4.99 for this. Which now I read the comments seems strange, there is seemingly no consistency with the price.. it’s a sub standard product. Dev you can keep my money and I’ll keep the app, hopefully one day you update it.. on a positive note the UI looks great.
Great free app

Sneaky app payment
by awynthor on 2019/01/16 15:49
Disappointed with app developer with a pop up screen Touch ID purchase after a few minuets use.I need to tell apple about this practice.
Amazing
by Important_reviews on 2018/12/23 17:49
Works the best
Good app, but be careful as accidental purchase of App is too easy.
by sn-reciew on 2018/12/08 11:26
App is great, but the pop up messages can give rise to accidental purchases. Initially I felt quite angry, though got a refund from Apple. Moreover, the developer responded thoroughly, thoughtfully, and professionally. I think he is genuinely trying to build a great app, but is just struggling to stop accidental purchases. These seem the only problems reducing his AppStore rating, and so I am certain that he knows it is in his interests to correct the situation. On the basis that I would prefer to help a developer, than blame him for how easy Apple makes purchasing with touch or faceID I have adjusted my review from 1 to 4 stars. The only reason it’s not 5 stars is the problem around the App purchase design. Which I am sure he will be making efforts to improve.
Beware it tricking you into upgrade
by David Hemming on 2018/11/11 12:26
I was using this App and recording the sound levels, suddenly the screen changed to ask if I wanted to upgrade, I couldn’t see a way to clear the screen so pressed the Touch ID button to close the app, it then thanked me for buying the upgraded version for £9.99 This is not how to sell Apps, I have reported it to Apple and have had the charges refunded. Reply to developer. If you want to sell the Pro version properly then don’t use a pop up system while the free version is being used. It is obviously a trick. The app is very good but no one wants to be cheated into a purchase.
Very dubious marketing practices
by pteron on 2018/11/10 12:21
I like the look of this app, but the pop up after a few minutes with a 30 second countdown offering a one time chance to get a discount on the app is really shady practice - you can't possibly have used it enough to know if it's worth paying for. So it's a no from me.
That's good.
by Carmen_Collins on 2018/10/29 15:46
I use it to measure sound levels at work from time to time. I am a very light user. So it does what I need it for

Tricks you into buying full version! Beware
by Croyk on 2018/07/10 13:39
Make sure you disable Touch ID on your phone as this app is designed to trick you into buying the full version when you open it. If you touch the home button it will go ahead with the purchase. Scam.
Does not work

Great Sound Monitor
by Jumbo_the_Elephant on 2018/05/12 05:31
This is such a simple application to use and is great for monitoring ambient noise. Keeps you aware of dangerous noise levels and keeps your ears in a healthy environment .
Poor design
by Tunebasher on 2018/05/05 11:19
Keeps trying to upgrade despite the full app being purchased and in the process loses the recording. I wasted hours of effort as a consequence. Don’t bother buying this .
Hard to evaluate
by Matt runner 111 on 2018/01/23 00:26
I appreciate that the makers of this app want to make money, but it is impossible to evaluate it fully as it presents a lock screen prompting the user to upgrade to a paid version, or redirects to the Apple App Store, within 30s of opening.
Professional!
by Bradley Lane on 2017/12/12 14:32
Very nice if you can add frequency with the Decibel Meter Pro should be very helpful if someone can see what HZ he is speaking thanks for your time.
App purchase required
by Credited on 2017/10/31 12:46
Keeps covering the meter reading screen with a page trying to get you to buy the pro version. Don't mind saying no once- but not everytime I use it. Sorry- good app but being spoiled by upgrade prompt.
