too noisy Pro
Description
This is a fun app that children enjoy and respond to. It's a real boon to any adult who needs to control the levels of noise of a group of children. For the responsible adult it is like having a virtual assistant with you, constantly monitoring noise levels and letting the children know in a fun and engaging way if noise levels have reached an unacceptable level. In tests we have found when using this app with groups of children peer pressure alone is generally sufficient to control noise levels. Summary of Features • Displays graphically the background noise level in a room in a fun and engaging way. • Allows the tolerable noise level to be adjusted to cater for those "louder activities" as well compensating for banging doors and other sudden noises with the "sensitivity" and "dampening" sliders. • When the predefined noise level is exceeded for more than 3 seconds: 1) An audible Alarm is sounded (this can be switched ON or OFF) 2) The App appears to shatter the screen of the Device (this can be switched ON or OFF) 3) A counter, displayed on the noise meter, is incremented by one. Keeping track of the number of “too noisy" alarms.(this can be switched ON or OFF) • There is a built-in "Star Awards" rewards system. It can operated in two modes: - Achievement Mode In this mode a Star is awarded each time the Class keep their noise under control for a pre-determined period of time. This can be from 1 to 15 minutes. Normally, if the class triggers the alarm in this mode they will lose the Star currently running, however, there is also a switch that, if set to ON, will remove an additional Star every time the Class cause the “too noisy” alarm to be triggered.If students get all 10 stars a "Super Star Award" is displayed. Stars can also be manually Awarded and removed by the responsible adult. - Session Mode In this mode the Teacher sets the length of time for a complete session. This can be any length of time. Perhaps for a full lesson (e.g. 1 hour 10 minutes) or for a time period set to complete a specific task (e.g. 20 minutes). The app will take the session time and divide it by 10 (the maximum number of Stars that can be Won in any one session). The Stars are then awarded at that rate. For example if the Teacher sets the session time to 60 minutes then one Star Awards will be awarded every 6 minutes (60 minutes / 10 Stars = 6 minutes per Star) • Keep things fresh with over 200 Dial / Background Theme combinations • The "Alarm Counter" can be reset or disabled completely. If the noise level is acceptable a happy smiling contented graphic is displayed. If the levels of noise increase beyond what the responsible adult has determined as acceptable, the graphic changes to reflect the unacceptable noise level. Once the level of noise returns to an acceptable level the graphic automatically returns to the happy contented one, however, if the volume of noise remains unacceptably high for more than 3 seconds...an audible alarm is sounded (this can be turned on and off) and the screen of the device appears to shatter! Also, the "Alarm Counter" on the meter is incremented by one (this can be zeroed at any time with a reset button).

I have to scream at the top of my lungs for it to register and go off. Wasted five dollars
Best app purchase ever!!! Too Noisy Pro rocks!!!
by Romeo Beachbum on 2019/05/09 23:21
Best purchase ever!!!!!! Subbed in first grade today. This app worked beautifully!!! They were completely quiet all morning earning the 10 stars!!! The peer pressure was magical. So I popped popcorn for them after they reached the 10 stars. Quick. Easy snack. They were thrilled!!!!!! I was thrilled.
Hardly reading the noise level
by 2224445556lzz on 2019/02/03 17:30
I’m not sure what I am doing incorrectly, but I had adjusted the levels to very sensitive and it barely picks up my students’ talking/noise level. I really wanted to use this app. My co-workers use it and love it, but I can’t seem to get it to work correctly.
I use it everyday but it can use an improvement
by murphy0143 on 2019/01/21 18:37
I love this app I use it daily my one complaint is that it freezes if something interrupts the screen. A text or alarm. If you close it and check something else and come back it’s frozen. You then have to close the app reopen it and reset their stars. If they fix that then it’s golden.

Overall good app but...
by Loray S on 2018/10/24 20:41
The sensitivity levels are not close enough. 99% sets it off pretty easy, but 98% is not sensitive at all. Please make smaller variances between sensitivity levels. I can never use anything under 98%. Even 98% is too loud in my room. Fix this and it’s a 5 star app!
No support and does not work online!
by Georjenbekfkrn on 2018/09/29 23:38
I paid for the online pro version and the meter doesn’t work. The free version online works just fine. I emailed customer support and have not received any response. Waste of money. I wish someone would contact me and fix the problem!
Help
by mrs. ht 1 on 2018/09/03 21:13
I tried to contact the app support. I get an error page instead. I paid the 3.99 the first time. Then I needed an update, so I got charged again. Will I be charged every update? Overall, I really like the app. My students have responded well to it. I will continue to use the app for classroom behavior. Can someone let me know how the billing works. Thanks
Earning rewards!
by TNbee on 2017/12/22 01:55
I can’t wait to use this with my class after Christmas break! It was recommended to me by another teacher. I LOVE that the class can EARN stars for being quiet as opposed to the ineffective LOSING of privileges. Will update once I get to use it.
Great App
by Thomas Boyz on 2017/02/08 04:22
I love Too Noisy Pro and so do my students! It makes station time run smoothly and the students work at a very low level (or they're not talking at all). They even encourage each other to "keep it down" if they see the meter move. I've enjoyed the additional background themes and hope you add some more soon! My students love the cat, dog, and snowman backgrounds. Thank you for a great app!
Almost magic!
by Emk315 on 2016/11/21 19:00
Excellent for special needs kids who have trouble with volume control! We dealt with yelling and crying meltdowns when frustrated or upset and this app has completely helped with giving a visual for impulsive yelling.
Great!
by CLT1106 on 2016/09/21 01:26
I really like this app! My 6th and 7th graders respond great to it! They watch it very closely and I've made a game out of which class can earn the most stars. It's really great!
iOS 10 Problem
by Flite87 on 2016/09/20 02:39
I really love this app for group assignments in my classroom. Unfortunately ever since I downloaded iOS 10, the buzzer for the room getting too loud goes off instantly. I've tried to reinstall the app and I tried it on both my iPad and iPhone, but the same thing happens. Please fix this and I will be sure to update my review with my usual love for your product. Thanks!
Suggestion
by KCSWOH on 2016/09/18 23:55
Make this app available on the iMac, too! I would like to project it from my desktop computer to the whiteboard.
Not sensitive enough
by rjhardin on 2016/09/12 18:43
My students love this app and I like it too, but it needs to be more sensitive. The students can still be quite loud without triggering the alarm. This is with the app at the highest sensitivity.
Pause button
by Fav1987😈 on 2016/08/27 00:42
Would give 5 stars, but the pause button only works like half the time. Please fix this!!!
Love! Love! Love!
by JennaCsrt4 on 2016/04/25 19:31
I use this app on my classroom which gets quite loud sometimes considering I teach art, music to grades k/3 all the way to middle school and drama! This app has been a lifesaver and the kids absolutely love getting the golden star coin!
No Sound From Speakerphone!!!
by Vlad8nastya on 2016/03/27 18:15
Dear developers, please consider fixing or adding function wherein alarm will sound from speakerphone and over Bluetooth speaker. That was the whole point I paid money for this app but now disappointed!!! If that's fixed, 5*****
Great for the Classroom
by Turaais on 2016/02/01 15:27
I love this! It reduces the amount of times I have to remind the class to be quiet and allows the students to self monitor. I wish it was compatible with bluetooth so the sound could be a bit louder
Teacher
by Melb1976 on 2016/01/30 20:03
Love the app. Only problem is that my phone or iPad dies in the middle of the day. The online was is good but I wish it was the pro version, not the lite.
Just a few suggestions
by Kitkat6124 on 2015/11/04 00:16
Great App, would give it two more stars if we could a) use the app over Bluetooth speakers so that the class can hear the too noisy signal. B) have the two noisy signal louder or somehow usable over speakerphone. When the kids get too noisy, it is too faint to hear the signal. I love the graphics!
Works well!
by StreetJesus on 2015/11/03 20:33
Works fairly well at getting loud kids to honor acceptable voice volume levels. Best used with a good amplified speaker. Highly configurable and reliable. I like it because it is portable too!
Versatile App
by Can'tExercise on 2015/10/13 03:33
I really love Too Noisy Pro for my 8th grade classroom. I love being able to set the sensitivity and they love earning stars! It is truly customizable for the ever-changing routine of middle school. I would love even more options for backgrounds, especially ones for middle school kids. They love holiday themes, seasonal themes, and sports themes among other ideas. They really dig the spooky moon background with the bats. Thanks for such a great and versatile app!
Thank you for the update!
by WingWright2 on 2015/07/10 17:42
I love the new sound controls! It is much easier to use. This app is amazing! Definitely worth the money. I've used it in first, third, and fifth grade. It has been effective in every grade. I just wish we could save sound levels that work for certain times (silent reading, small group work, large group work, etc). Thank you for the wonderful app!
Work wonders!
by gtpen on 2015/07/09 01:45
My 3rd graders love this app and it keeps them quiet. Sometimes I even feel a bit bad for keeping them so quiet 😄. Thank you for this app.
So much potential
by Ablang5 on 2015/04/07 22:11
The first time I used this app it was great. I didn't have to keep asking my class to get quiet. They knew that if the buzzer went off they lost a star, so they were self-monitoring. But the app hasn't worked that well since. My students will be talking and it won't buzz no matter how much I adjust it. Furthermore, when I try to contact the company, my the email address is invalid. Too bad. This would be a great tool if it did what it says it will.
Mr.G
by Grody33 on 2015/03/25 13:15
Love this app! Wish I could change the number of star awards to something like 3 or 5.
Very good, useful app
by Hqoznhwidnwi on 2015/01/24 20:41
For those who complain about the volume of the alert... you do need to hook up speakers like they show in the photo. This app works great in my elementary Art room!
don't waste your mone

Not loud enough

The alarm doesn't sound loudly through phone speaker so it's a waste of $3
Never write reviews
by jason1976 on 2014/11/04 15:59
Teachers, seriously just buy this app. Do not read anymore of this review; do not do anymore contemplation; do not wait and talk to other friends; buy this app right now. If you like your students to work in groups, and you want them to be quiet, and you don't want to go home with a headache, buy this app. I do not even really write reviews, but this app is seriously worth it's weight in gold. Why are you still reading this, go buy the app.
Very usefull 1 problem thought
by Chang swing on 2014/11/01 17:49
It works pretty good in classroom but 1 problem is my kids in back room think there slick and can talk softly and the iPad cant hear it but I think it's pretty good but even on 100 percent it can't hear them but pretty good. Try it RIGHT ON!
Too Noisy Program
by Arya in Chicago on 2014/09/23 22:32
This program is targeted for teachers in the classroom, however, as a psychiatrist, I use this self-monitoring app for select patients, usually towards the end of a session. The app allows the patient a sense of independent control of their environment, as well as increasing awareness of their impact on the surroundings. Patients enjoy the "cat on the couch" background, as well as the "city-scape" background, however, a few more "adult" backgrounds would be nice. I appreciate the ease of disabling the alarms (which are too distracting for an office setting).
Tool for classroom
by Shanbear1984 on 2014/09/11 00:36
I have been using this tool for the last week with my first graders. They LOVE it!
I've been praying someone would create this app
by boplanman on 2014/08/11 18:20
It has been a great tool for training my class to keep it down. Works great in the lunch room too
Love this app in my classroom!
by Ms.Harbin on 2014/06/20 01:12
I love this app! I use it during writing time in my kindergarten classroom. The kids can earn stars if they don't get too loud! When they earn them all, they get a reward from me! If they are too loud, the meter "breaks the screen", and they have to work in silence until another star is earned. They love earning those stars!
Motivated students..Happy Teacher!
by Next2happy on 2014/04/18 15:27
My students have really enjoyed using this app. They earn classroom money each time they earn 10 stars. The visual has helped them understand how noisy they actually are. I encourage all teachers to try it. A few things I would like to see... the ability to save each classes final star count and average decibels by date. This would allow each class to compete against each other and to beat their last score. The ability to change between silent, quiet and class settings without loosing the stars already earned. Maybe even adding achievements to earn. Making it more of a game. Let's face it children love online games! The difference this app has already made in my classroom is staggering. Thank you!
Good app
by Jeffster456 on 2014/02/05 23:34
Great app. The kids love watching the meter. Just wish there were more sound options. The sounds when it's too loud are too aversive.
Amazing
by Dfauth on 2014/02/01 18:34
The best app ever for teachers. If your an elementary teacher and don't use this daily, you are going to be blown away when you start. Best of all, students love it as well. The best 2.99 I have ever spent. Written by a 3rd grade classroom teacher!
Great!
by Zac+Christie= <3 on 2014/01/24 02:30
Love the app but am getting bored with the background themes. How about some more choices?
Did work
by Bwhite06 on 2013/12/18 18:59
I used to love this until it updated. Now I can not get it to register the sound at all. Not sure what is up with it. I have tried everything even reinstalling it.
Love
by Imtheirishgoddess on 2013/12/05 02:36
I love this app! My class responds well to it. The best part is that we can take it anywhere in the building with us. We add to our reward jar when we earn a large star from the app.
Excellent
by Some getting use to on 2013/11/15 02:07
I use this all the time for my sixth graders. I thought that it might be too kidish for them, but they love it. I bought the pro version today because it has been such a great help.
Great app!

Great app
by adrykho on 2013/11/02 19:27
I teach arts at elementary levels so different s groups and ages This app is so useful because they can actually see if they are a bit loud and check how many starts gain or loose ;)
Awesome improvements!
by Beardease on 2013/11/01 17:55
I hadn&#39;t been using this app this year in my classroom, because I had used it last year (spring 2013) prior to the updates that you recently made, and I found it was somewhat limiting for my liking. But I was just revisiting it today and discovered what you&#39;d added--the new screens, the ability to control the alarm length, and the addition of the star earnings among others. This really opened up some options for me to use with my 2nd graders. I&#39;m going to get started with it again first thing on Monday morning!! Thanks for improving your product.
Great App!!!
by BRad80085 on 2013/08/27 02:27
I encourage every teacher to buy this and will recommend it to all teachers. Great visual for my special day class!
Wonderful app
by sheep722 on 2013/04/15 04:46
This is a wonderful app. I&#39;m no longer having to constantly tell me students to work quietly. They can visibly see if they are too loud, and quiet each other down. This is saving my voice a lot!
Too Noisy Pro

Really great app! I use it on my family to scare them
Too Noisy Pro
by Mr B:) on 2013/03/07 16:06
Love the app! It actually works with a classroom of 24 noisy Colombian kids. That being that I wish I could play soft music with the IPad app at the same time Too Noisy is opened. All in all great stuff!
Don't need reminders to use it!
by ShimmeringMermaid on 2013/02/11 00:20
This is a good app, but I don&#39;t appreciate a paid app giving me notifications telling me that I &#34;haven&#39;t used Too Noisy Pro in a while&#34;. I even disabled all notifications for this app and I still get them.
Awesome

LOVE IT
by Teachingdiva58 on 2012/12/07 02:17
I absolutely love this! I tried the lite version and my class really Thought it was cool. They asked me to keep using it. They are a group of wonderful kids but they can get pretty chatty and loud during activities. I told my colleagues it would even be better with a counter and some kind of warning sound. Imagine my delight when I realized the PRO version had all the things I wanted. I can&#39;t wait to use it tomorrow. I just hope the alarm doesn&#39;t give ME a heart attack.
From the dad

I really like this app because as a substitute teacher, it helps me with classroom management!

by TwonkyKitty on 2012/11/23 15:09
They actually beg me to use it. I don&#39;t always want to because sometimes I&#39;m using my iPad for something else, but it&#39;s great to keep them wanting more. Also, the people behind the product are very open to suggestions.
Love it!
by Squidley42 on 2012/10/28 02:57
Use it on an iPad 2. Helps me monitor an elementary school cafeteria. Works great because it is accurate and consistent. The bright display is easily seen throughout the whole room. Would love to see an option of a decibel reading.
Not Worth It...
by --Dashes-- on 2012/10/05 20:40
The noise sensitivity isn&#39;t accurate at all. If you set it on silent mode (which is 100 percent noise sensitivity) you can sit 2 feet away from your phone and have a normal volume level conversation and it won&#39;t go off. I basically had to yell to get it to go off and the phone was in arms reach. So if you are in a classroom full of kids they can all talk in a low to normal volume and it won&#39;t set it off. Once the kids figure this out it will probably encourage them to talk because they see it isn&#39;t going off.
Great product!
by joey.colon on 2012/09/08 03:28
Awesome product. 99 cents beats the 70 dollar Yakker Tracker. My students respond well to it. Video out on the iPhone would earn the app 5 full stars. (I use the iPad version for my class)

I love this app! I use it during writing time in my kindergarten classroom. The kids can earn stars if they don&#39;t get too loud! When they earn them all, they get a reward from me! If they are too loud, the meter &#34;breaks the screen&#34;, and they have to work in silence until another star is earned. They love earning those stars!
Not Worth It...

The noise sensitivity isn&#39;t accurate at all. If you set it on silent mode (which is 100 percent noise sensitivity) you can sit 2 feet away from your phone and have a normal volume level conversation and it won&#39;t go off. I basically had to yell to get it to go off and the phone was in arms reach. So if you are in a classroom full of kids they can all talk in a low to normal volume and it won&#39;t set it off. Once the kids figure this out it will probably encourage them to talk because they see it isn&#39;t going off.
My students LOVE this
by TwonkyKitty on 2012/11/23 15:09
They actually beg me to use it. I don&#39;t always want to because sometimes I&#39;m using my iPad for something else, but it&#39;s great to keep them wanting more. Also, the people behind the product are very open to suggestions.
So much potential
by Ablang5 on 2015/04/07 22:11
The first time I used this app it was great. I didn&#39;t have to keep asking my class to get quiet. They knew that if the buzzer went off they lost a star, so they were self-monitoring. But the app hasn&#39;t worked that well since. My students will be talking and it won&#39;t buzz no matter how much I adjust it. Furthermore, when I try to contact the company, my the email address is invalid. Too bad. This would be a great tool if it did what it says it will.
Almost magic!
by Emk315 on 2016/11/21 19:00
Excellent for special needs kids who have trouble with volume control! We dealt with yelling and crying meltdowns when frustrated or upset and this app has completely helped with giving a visual for impulsive yelling.
Wonderful app
by sheep722 on 2013/04/15 04:46
This is a wonderful app. I&#39;m no longer having to constantly tell me students to work quietly. They can visibly see if they are too loud, and quiet each other down. This is saving my voice a lot!
Just a few suggestions
by Kitkat6124 on 2015/11/04 00:16
Great App, would give it two more stars if we could a) use the app over Bluetooth speakers so that the class can hear the too noisy signal. B) have the two noisy signal louder or somehow usable over speakerphone. When the kids get too noisy, it is too faint to hear the signal. I love the graphics!
Amazing
by Dfauth on 2014/02/01 18:34
The best app ever for teachers. If your an elementary teacher and don&#39;t use this daily, you are going to be blown away when you start. Best of all, students love it as well. The best 2.99 I have ever spent. Written by a 3rd grade classroom teacher!
Love it!
by Squidley42 on 2012/10/28 02:57
Use it on an iPad 2. Helps me monitor an elementary school cafeteria. Works great because it is accurate and consistent. The bright display is easily seen throughout the whole room. Would love to see an option of a decibel reading.
Works well!
by StreetJesus on 2015/11/03 20:33
Works fairly well at getting loud kids to honor acceptable voice volume levels. Best used with a good amplified speaker. Highly configurable and reliable. I like it because it is portable too!
Excellent
by Some getting use to on 2013/11/15 02:07
I use this all the time for my sixth graders. I thought that it might be too kidish for them, but they love it. I bought the pro version today because it has been such a great help.
Love! Love! Love!
by JennaCsrt4 on 2016/04/25 19:31
I use this app on my classroom which gets quite loud sometimes considering I teach art, music to grades k/3 all the way to middle school and drama! This app has been a lifesaver and the kids absolutely love getting the golden star coin!
Great for the Classroom
by Turaais on 2016/02/01 15:27
I love this! It reduces the amount of times I have to remind the class to be quiet and allows the students to self monitor. I wish it was compatible with bluetooth so the sound could be a bit louder
Love
by Imtheirishgoddess on 2013/12/05 02:36
I love this app! My class responds well to it. The best part is that we can take it anywhere in the building with us. We add to our reward jar when we earn a large star from the app.
iOS 10 Problem
by Flite87 on 2016/09/20 02:39
I really love this app for group assignments in my classroom. Unfortunately ever since I downloaded iOS 10, the buzzer for the room getting too loud goes off instantly. I&#39;ve tried to reinstall the app and I tried it on both my iPad and iPhone, but the same thing happens. Please fix this and I will be sure to update my review with my usual love for your product. Thanks!
I've been praying someone would create this app
by boplanman on 2014/08/11 18:20
It has been a great tool for training my class to keep it down. Works great in the lunch room too
Great app
by adrykho on 2013/11/02 19:27
I teach arts at elementary levels so different s groups and ages This app is so useful because they can actually see if they are a bit loud and check how many starts gain or loose ;)
Very good, useful app
by Hqoznhwidnwi on 2015/01/24 20:41
For those who complain about the volume of the alert... you do need to hook up speakers like they show in the photo. This app works great in my elementary Art room!
Suggestion
by KCSWOH on 2016/09/18 23:55
Make this app available on the iMac, too! I would like to project it from my desktop computer to the whiteboard.
Work wonders!
by gtpen on 2015/07/09 01:45
My 3rd graders love this app and it keeps them quiet. Sometimes I even feel a bit bad for keeping them so quiet 😄. Thank you for this app.
Great!
by CLT1106 on 2016/09/21 01:26
I really like this app! My 6th and 7th graders respond great to it! They watch it very closely and I&#39;ve made a game out of which class can earn the most stars. It&#39;s really great!
Great product!
by joey.colon on 2012/09/08 03:28
Awesome product. 99 cents beats the 70 dollar Yakker Tracker. My students respond well to it. Video out on the iPhone would earn the app 5 full stars. (I use the iPad version for my class)
Don't need reminders to use it!
by ShimmeringMermaid on 2013/02/11 00:20
This is a good app, but I don&#39;t appreciate a paid app giving me notifications telling me that I &#34;haven&#39;t used Too Noisy Pro in a while&#34;. I even disabled all notifications for this app and I still get them.
Too Noisy Pro
by Mr B:) on 2013/03/07 16:06
Love the app! It actually works with a classroom of 24 noisy Colombian kids. That being that I wish I could play soft music with the IPad app at the same time Too Noisy is opened. All in all great stuff!
Teacher
by Melb1976 on 2016/01/30 20:03
Love the app. Only problem is that my phone or iPad dies in the middle of the day. The online was is good but I wish it was the pro version, not the lite.
From the dad
by MSheanJones on 2012/11/30 19:50
Downloaded this on the road. Best. App. Ever. The kids can play and laugh and have fun and can see how loud they&#39;re getting.
No Sound From Speakerphone!!!
by Vlad8nastya on 2016/03/27 18:15
Dear developers, please consider fixing or adding function wherein alarm will sound from speakerphone and over Bluetooth speaker. That was the whole point I paid money for this app but now disappointed!!! If that&#39;s fixed, 5*****
Good app
by Jeffster456 on 2014/02/05 23:34
Great app. The kids love watching the meter. Just wish there were more sound options. The sounds when it&#39;s too loud are too aversive.
Great App!!!
by BRad80085 on 2013/08/27 02:27
I encourage every teacher to buy this and will recommend it to all teachers. Great visual for my special day class!
Not sensitive enough
by rjhardin on 2016/09/12 18:43
My students love this app and I like it too, but it needs to be more sensitive. The students can still be quite loud without triggering the alarm. This is with the app at the highest sensitivity.
Pause button
by Fav1987😈 on 2016/08/27 00:42
Would give 5 stars, but the pause button only works like half the time. Please fix this!!!

Description
This is a fun app that children enjoy and respond to. It's a real boon to any adult who needs to control the levels of noise of a group of children. For the responsible adult it is like having a virtual assistant with you, constantly monitoring noise levels and letting the children know in a fun and engaging way if noise levels have reached an unacceptable level. In tests we have found when using this app with groups of children peer pressure alone is generally sufficient to control noise levels. Summary of Features • Displays graphically the background noise level in a room in a fun and engaging way. • Allows the tolerable noise level to be adjusted to cater for those "louder activities" as well compensating for banging doors and other sudden noises with the "sensitivity" and "dampening" sliders. • When the predefined noise level is exceeded for more than 3 seconds: 1) An audible Alarm is sounded (this can be switched ON or OFF) 2) The App appears to shatter the screen of the Device (this can be switched ON or OFF) 3) A counter, displayed on the noise meter, is incremented by one. Keeping track of the number of “too noisy" alarms.(this can be switched ON or OFF) • There is a built-in "Star Awards" rewards system. It can operated in two modes: - Achievement Mode In this mode a Star is awarded each time the Class keep their noise under control for a pre-determined period of time. This can be from 1 to 15 minutes. Normally, if the class triggers the alarm in this mode they will lose the Star currently running, however, there is also a switch that, if set to ON, will remove an additional Star every time the Class cause the “too noisy” alarm to be triggered.If students get all 10 stars a "Super Star Award" is displayed. Stars can also be manually Awarded and removed by the responsible adult. - Session Mode In this mode the Teacher sets the length of time for a complete session. This can be any length of time. Perhaps for a full lesson (e.g. 1 hour 10 minutes) or for a time period set to complete a specific task (e.g. 20 minutes). The app will take the session time and divide it by 10 (the maximum number of Stars that can be Won in any one session). The Stars are then awarded at that rate. For example if the Teacher sets the session time to 60 minutes then one Star Awards will be awarded every 6 minutes (60 minutes / 10 Stars = 6 minutes per Star) • Keep things fresh with over 200 Dial / Background Theme combinations • The "Alarm Counter" can be reset or disabled completely. If the noise level is acceptable a happy smiling contented graphic is displayed. If the levels of noise increase beyond what the responsible adult has determined as acceptable, the graphic changes to reflect the unacceptable noise level. Once the level of noise returns to an acceptable level the graphic automatically returns to the happy contented one, however, if the volume of noise remains unacceptably high for more than 3 seconds...an audible alarm is sounded (this can be turned on and off) and the screen of the device appears to shatter! Also, the "Alarm Counter" on the meter is incremented by one (this can be zeroed at any time with a reset button). If you have any issues with too noisy Pro, before you write a bad review, please tap the "?" button in the app for help, or if you do not find the answer there, please contact us at support@academyapps.net. We can't fix what we don't know about, and writing a bad review is not the way to report a bug! You can also use this email address to submit feature requests. too noisy Pro has been developed over several based from cool feedback from users.
Does not work on our phone.
by erikp249 on 2019/06/06 20:45
I have to scream at the top of my lungs for it to register and go off. Wasted five dollars
Best app purchase ever!!! Too Noisy Pro rocks!!!
by Romeo Beachbum on 2019/05/09 23:21
Best purchase ever!!!!!! Subbed in first grade today. This app worked beautifully!!! They were completely quiet all morning earning the 10 stars!!! The peer pressure was magical. So I popped popcorn for them after they reached the 10 stars. Quick. Easy snack. They were thrilled!!!!!! I was thrilled.
Hardly reading the noise level
by 2224445556lzz on 2019/02/03 17:30
I’m not sure what I am doing incorrectly, but I had adjusted the levels to very sensitive and it barely picks up my students’ talking/noise level. I really wanted to use this app. My co-workers use it and love it, but I can’t seem to get it to work correctly.
I use it everyday but it can use an improvement
by murphy0143 on 2019/01/21 18:37
I love this app I use it daily my one complaint is that it freezes if something interrupts the screen. A text or alarm. If you close it and check something else and come back it’s frozen. You then have to close the app reopen it and reset their stars. If they fix that then it’s golden.
Help
by ctirdiaz on 2018/12/06 23:21
The app is not compatible with laptops?
Overall good app but...
by Loray S on 2018/10/24 20:41
The sensitivity levels are not close enough. 99% sets it off pretty easy, but 98% is not sensitive at all. Please make smaller variances between sensitivity levels. I can never use anything under 98%. Even 98% is too loud in my room. Fix this and it’s a 5 star app!
No support and does not work online!
by Georjenbekfkrn on 2018/09/29 23:38
I paid for the online pro version and the meter doesn’t work. The free version online works just fine. I emailed customer support and have not received any response. Waste of money. I wish someone would contact me and fix the problem!
Help
by mrs. ht 1 on 2018/09/03 21:13
I tried to contact the app support. I get an error page instead. I paid the 3.99 the first time. Then I needed an update, so I got charged again. Will I be charged every update? Overall, I really like the app. My students have responded well to it. I will continue to use the app for classroom behavior. Can someone let me know how the billing works. Thanks
Earning rewards!
by TNbee on 2017/12/22 01:55
I can’t wait to use this with my class after Christmas break! It was recommended to me by another teacher. I LOVE that the class can EARN stars for being quiet as opposed to the ineffective LOSING of privileges. Will update once I get to use it.
Great App
by Thomas Boyz on 2017/02/08 04:22
I love Too Noisy Pro and so do my students! It makes station time run smoothly and the students work at a very low level (or they&#39;re not talking at all). They even encourage each other to &#34;keep it down&#34; if they see the meter move. I&#39;ve enjoyed the additional background themes and hope you add some more soon! My students love the cat, dog, and snowman backgrounds. Thank you for a great app!
Almost magic!

Versatile App
by Can'tExercise on 2015/10/13 03:33
I really love Too Noisy Pro for my 8th grade classroom. I love being able to set the sensitivity and they love earning stars! It is truly customizable for the ever-changing routine of middle school. I would love even more options for backgrounds, especially ones for middle school kids. They love holiday themes, seasonal themes, and sports themes among other ideas. They really dig the spooky moon background with the bats. Thanks for such a great and versatile app!
Thank you for the update!
by WingWright2 on 2015/07/10 17:42
I love the new sound controls! It is much easier to use. This app is amazing! Definitely worth the money. I&#39;ve used it in first, third, and fifth grade. It has been effective in every grade. I just wish we could save sound levels that work for certain times (silent reading, small group work, large group work, etc). Thank you for the wonderful app!
Work wonders!

Not loud enough

Never write reviews
by jason1976 on 2014/11/04 15:59
Teachers, seriously just buy this app. Do not read anymore of this review; do not do anymore contemplation; do not wait and talk to other friends; buy this app right now. If you like your students to work in groups, and you want them to be quiet, and you don&#39;t want to go home with a headache, buy this app. I do not even really write reviews, but this app is seriously worth it&#39;s weight in gold. Why are you still reading this, go buy the app.
Very usefull 1 problem thought
by Chang swing on 2014/11/01 17:49
It works pretty good in classroom but 1 problem is my kids in back room think there slick and can talk softly and the iPad cant hear it but I think it&#39;s pretty good but even on 100 percent it can&#39;t hear them but pretty good. Try it RIGHT ON!
Too Noisy Program
by Arya in Chicago on 2014/09/23 22:32
This program is targeted for teachers in the classroom, however, as a psychiatrist, I use this self-monitoring app for select patients, usually towards the end of a session. The app allows the patient a sense of independent control of their environment, as well as increasing awareness of their impact on the surroundings. Patients enjoy the &#34;cat on the couch&#34; background, as well as the &#34;city-scape&#34; background, however, a few more &#34;adult&#34; backgrounds would be nice. I appreciate the ease of disabling the alarms (which are too distracting for an office setting).
Tool for classroom

I love this app! I use it during writing time in my kindergarten classroom. The kids can earn stars if they don&#39;t get too loud! When they earn them all, they get a reward from me! If they are too loud, the meter &#34;breaks the screen&#34;, and they have to work in silence until another star is earned. They love earning those stars!
Motivated students..Happy Teacher!
by Next2happy on 2014/04/18 15:27
My students have really enjoyed using this app. They earn classroom money each time they earn 10 stars. The visual has helped them understand how noisy they actually are. I encourage all teachers to try it. A few things I would like to see... the ability to save each classes final star count and average decibels by date. This would allow each class to compete against each other and to beat their last score. The ability to change between silent, quiet and class settings without loosing the stars already earned. Maybe even adding achievements to earn. Making it more of a game. Let&#39;s face it children love online games! The difference this app has already made in my classroom is staggering. Thank you!
Good app
by Jeffster456 on 2014/02/05 23:34
Great app. The kids love watching the meter. Just wish there were more sound options. The sounds when it&#39;s too loud are too aversive.

Awesome improvements!
by Beardease on 2013/11/01 17:55
I hadn&#39;t been using this app this year in my classroom, because I had used it last year (spring 2013) prior to the updates that you recently made, and I found it was somewhat limiting for my liking. But I was just revisiting it today and discovered what you&#39;d added--the new screens, the ability to control the alarm length, and the addition of the star earnings among others. This really opened up some options for me to use with my 2nd graders. I&#39;m going to get started with it again first thing on Monday morning!! Thanks for improving your product.

This is a wonderful app. I&#39;m no longer having to constantly tell me students to work quietly. They can visibly see if they are too loud, and quiet each other down. This is saving my voice a lot!
Too Noisy Pro

Really great app! I use it on my family to scare them
Too Noisy Pro
by Mr B:) on 2013/03/07 16:06
Love the app! It actually works with a classroom of 24 noisy Colombian kids. That being that I wish I could play soft music with the IPad app at the same time Too Noisy is opened. All in all great stuff!
Don't need reminders to use it!
by ShimmeringMermaid on 2013/02/11 00:20
This is a good app, but I don&#39;t appreciate a paid app giving me notifications telling me that I &#34;haven&#39;t used Too Noisy Pro in a while&#34;. I even disabled all notifications for this app and I still get them.
Awesome

Love the app, kids like it too, saves your voice and nagging
LOVE IT
by Teachingdiva58 on 2012/12/07 02:17
I absolutely love this! I tried the lite version and my class really Thought it was cool. They asked me to keep using it. They are a group of wonderful kids but they can get pretty chatty and loud during activities. I told my colleagues it would even be better with a counter and some kind of warning sound. Imagine my delight when I realized the PRO version had all the things I wanted. I can&#39;t wait to use it tomorrow. I just hope the alarm doesn&#39;t give ME a heart attack.

Downloaded this on the road. Best. App. Ever. The kids can play and laugh and have fun and can see how loud they&#39;re getting.
Love it
by Jennyjoe020 on 2012/11/24 19:35
I really like this app because as a substitute teacher, it helps me with classroom management!
My students LOVE this
by TwonkyKitty on 2012/11/23 15:09
They actually beg me to use it. I don&#39;t always want to because sometimes I&#39;m using my iPad for something else, but it&#39;s great to keep them wanting more. Also, the people behind the product are very open to suggestions.
Love it!
by Squidley42 on 2012/10/28 02:57
Use it on an iPad 2. Helps me monitor an elementary school cafeteria. Works great because it is accurate and consistent. The bright display is easily seen throughout the whole room. Would love to see an option of a decibel reading.
Not Worth It...
by --Dashes-- on 2012/10/05 20:40
The noise sensitivity isn&#39;t accurate at all. If you set it on silent mode (which is 100 percent noise sensitivity) you can sit 2 feet away from your phone and have a normal volume level conversation and it won&#39;t go off. I basically had to yell to get it to go off and the phone was in arms reach. So if you are in a classroom full of kids they can all talk in a low to normal volume and it won&#39;t set it off. Once the kids figure this out it will probably encourage them to talk because they see it isn&#39;t going off.
Great product!
by joey.colon on 2012/09/08 03:28
Awesome product. 99 cents beats the 70 dollar Yakker Tracker. My students respond well to it. Video out on the iPhone would earn the app 5 full stars. (I use the iPad version for my class)
I use it everyday but it can use an improvement
by murphy0143 on 2019/01/21 18:37
I love this app I use it daily my one complaint is that it freezes if something interrupts the screen. A text or alarm. If you close it and check something else and come back it’s frozen. You then have to close the app reopen it and reset their stars. If they fix that then it’s golden.
Great App
by Thomas Boyz on 2017/02/08 04:22
I love Too Noisy Pro and so do my students! It makes station time run smoothly and the students work at a very low level (or they&#39;re not talking at all). They even encourage each other to &#34;keep it down&#34; if they see the meter move. I&#39;ve enjoyed the additional background themes and hope you add some more soon! My students love the cat, dog, and snowman backgrounds. Thank you for a great app!
Help
by mrs. ht 1 on 2018/09/03 21:13
I tried to contact the app support. I get an error page instead. I paid the 3.99 the first time. Then I needed an update, so I got charged again. Will I be charged every update? Overall, I really like the app. My students have responded well to it. I will continue to use the app for classroom behavior. Can someone let me know how the billing works. Thanks
Overall good app but...
by Loray S on 2018/10/24 20:41
The sensitivity levels are not close enough. 99% sets it off pretty easy, but 98% is not sensitive at all. Please make smaller variances between sensitivity levels. I can never use anything under 98%. Even 98% is too loud in my room. Fix this and it’s a 5 star app!
Best app purchase ever!!! Too Noisy Pro rocks!!!
by Romeo Beachbum on 2019/05/09 23:21
Best purchase ever!!!!!! Subbed in first grade today. This app worked beautifully!!! They were completely quiet all morning earning the 10 stars!!! The peer pressure was magical. So I popped popcorn for them after they reached the 10 stars. Quick. Easy snack. They were thrilled!!!!!! I was thrilled.
Earning rewards!
by TNbee on 2017/12/22 01:55
I can’t wait to use this with my class after Christmas break! It was recommended to me by another teacher. I LOVE that the class can EARN stars for being quiet as opposed to the ineffective LOSING of privileges. Will update once I get to use it.

The app is not compatible with laptops?
Hardly reading the noise level
by 2224445556lzz on 2019/02/03 17:30
I’m not sure what I am doing incorrectly, but I had adjusted the levels to very sensitive and it barely picks up my students’ talking/noise level. I really wanted to use this app. My co-workers use it and love it, but I can’t seem to get it to work correctly.
No support and does not work online!
by Georjenbekfkrn on 2018/09/29 23:38
I paid for the online pro version and the meter doesn’t work. The free version online works just fine. I emailed customer support and have not received any response. Waste of money. I wish someone would contact me and fix the problem!
Does not work on our phone.
by erikp249 on 2019/06/06 20:45
I have to scream at the top of my lungs for it to register and go off. Wasted five dollars
Motivated students..Happy Teacher!
by Next2happy on 2014/04/18 15:27
My students have really enjoyed using this app. They earn classroom money each time they earn 10 stars. The visual has helped them understand how noisy they actually are. I encourage all teachers to try it. A few things I would like to see... the ability to save each classes final star count and average decibels by date. This would allow each class to compete against each other and to beat their last score. The ability to change between silent, quiet and class settings without loosing the stars already earned. Maybe even adding achievements to earn. Making it more of a game. Let&#39;s face it children love online games! The difference this app has already made in my classroom is staggering. Thank you!
Too Noisy Program
by Arya in Chicago on 2014/09/23 22:32
This program is targeted for teachers in the classroom, however, as a psychiatrist, I use this self-monitoring app for select patients, usually towards the end of a session. The app allows the patient a sense of independent control of their environment, as well as increasing awareness of their impact on the surroundings. Patients enjoy the &#34;cat on the couch&#34; background, as well as the &#34;city-scape&#34; background, however, a few more &#34;adult&#34; backgrounds would be nice. I appreciate the ease of disabling the alarms (which are too distracting for an office setting).
Awesome improvements!
by Beardease on 2013/11/01 17:55
I hadn&#39;t been using this app this year in my classroom, because I had used it last year (spring 2013) prior to the updates that you recently made, and I found it was somewhat limiting for my liking. But I was just revisiting it today and discovered what you&#39;d added--the new screens, the ability to control the alarm length, and the addition of the star earnings among others. This really opened up some options for me to use with my 2nd graders. I&#39;m going to get started with it again first thing on Monday morning!! Thanks for improving your product.
Never write reviews
by jason1976 on 2014/11/04 15:59
Teachers, seriously just buy this app. Do not read anymore of this review; do not do anymore contemplation; do not wait and talk to other friends; buy this app right now. If you like your students to work in groups, and you want them to be quiet, and you don&#39;t want to go home with a headache, buy this app. I do not even really write reviews, but this app is seriously worth it&#39;s weight in gold. Why are you still reading this, go buy the app.

Very usefull 1 problem thought
by Chang swing on 2014/11/01 17:49
It works pretty good in classroom but 1 problem is my kids in back room think there slick and can talk softly and the iPad cant hear it but I think it&#39;s pretty good but even on 100 percent it can&#39;t hear them but pretty good. Try it RIGHT ON!
Thank you for the update!
by WingWright2 on 2015/07/10 17:42
I love the new sound controls! It is much easier to use. This app is amazing! Definitely worth the money. I&#39;ve used it in first, third, and fifth grade. It has been effective in every grade. I just wish we could save sound levels that work for certain times (silent reading, small group work, large group work, etc). Thank you for the wonderful app!
Versatile App
by Can'tExercise on 2015/10/13 03:33
I really love Too Noisy Pro for my 8th grade classroom. I love being able to set the sensitivity and they love earning stars! It is truly customizable for the ever-changing routine of middle school. I would love even more options for backgrounds, especially ones for middle school kids. They love holiday themes, seasonal themes, and sports themes among other ideas. They really dig the spooky moon background with the bats. Thanks for such a great and versatile app!
Love this app in my classroom!
by Ms.Harbin on 2014/06/20 01:12
I love this app! I use it during writing time in my kindergarten classroom. The kids can earn stars if they don&#39;t get too loud! When they earn them all, they get a reward from me! If they are too loud, the meter &#34;breaks the screen&#34;, and they have to work in silence until another star is earned. They love earning those stars!

So much potential
by Ablang5 on 2015/04/07 22:11
The first time I used this app it was great. I didn&#39;t have to keep asking my class to get quiet. They knew that if the buzzer went off they lost a star, so they were self-monitoring. But the app hasn&#39;t worked that well since. My students will be talking and it won&#39;t buzz no matter how much I adjust it. Furthermore, when I try to contact the company, my the email address is invalid. Too bad. This would be a great tool if it did what it says it will.
Almost magic!
by Emk315 on 2016/11/21 19:00
Excellent for special needs kids who have trouble with volume control! We dealt with yelling and crying meltdowns when frustrated or upset and this app has completely helped with giving a visual for impulsive yelling.

Just a few suggestions
by Kitkat6124 on 2015/11/04 00:16
Great App, would give it two more stars if we could a) use the app over Bluetooth speakers so that the class can hear the too noisy signal. B) have the two noisy signal louder or somehow usable over speakerphone. When the kids get too noisy, it is too faint to hear the signal. I love the graphics!
Amazing
by Dfauth on 2014/02/01 18:34
The best app ever for teachers. If your an elementary teacher and don&#39;t use this daily, you are going to be blown away when you start. Best of all, students love it as well. The best 2.99 I have ever spent. Written by a 3rd grade classroom teacher!
Love it!

by StreetJesus on 2015/11/03 20:33
Works fairly well at getting loud kids to honor acceptable voice volume levels. Best used with a good amplified speaker. Highly configurable and reliable. I like it because it is portable too!
Excellent
by Some getting use to on 2013/11/15 02:07
I use this all the time for my sixth graders. I thought that it might be too kidish for them, but they love it. I bought the pro version today because it has been such a great help.
Love! Love! Love!
by JennaCsrt4 on 2016/04/25 19:31
I use this app on my classroom which gets quite loud sometimes considering I teach art, music to grades k/3 all the way to middle school and drama! This app has been a lifesaver and the kids absolutely love getting the golden star coin!
Great for the Classroom
by Turaais on 2016/02/01 15:27
I love this! It reduces the amount of times I have to remind the class to be quiet and allows the students to self monitor. I wish it was compatible with bluetooth so the sound could be a bit louder
Love
by Imtheirishgoddess on 2013/12/05 02:36
I love this app! My class responds well to it. The best part is that we can take it anywhere in the building with us. We add to our reward jar when we earn a large star from the app.
iOS 10 Problem
by Flite87 on 2016/09/20 02:39
I really love this app for group assignments in my classroom. Unfortunately ever since I downloaded iOS 10, the buzzer for the room getting too loud goes off instantly. I&#39;ve tried to reinstall the app and I tried it on both my iPad and iPhone, but the same thing happens. Please fix this and I will be sure to update my review with my usual love for your product. Thanks!
I've been praying someone would create this app
by boplanman on 2014/08/11 18:20
It has been a great tool for training my class to keep it down. Works great in the lunch room too
Great app
by adrykho on 2013/11/02 19:27
I teach arts at elementary levels so different s groups and ages This app is so useful because they can actually see if they are a bit loud and check how many starts gain or loose ;)
Very good, useful app
by Hqoznhwidnwi on 2015/01/24 20:41
For those who complain about the volume of the alert... you do need to hook up speakers like they show in the photo. This app works great in my elementary Art room!
Suggestion
by KCSWOH on 2016/09/18 23:55
Make this app available on the iMac, too! I would like to project it from my desktop computer to the whiteboard.
Work wonders!
by gtpen on 2015/07/09 01:45
My 3rd graders love this app and it keeps them quiet. Sometimes I even feel a bit bad for keeping them so quiet 😄. Thank you for this app.
Great!
by CLT1106 on 2016/09/21 01:26
I really like this app! My 6th and 7th graders respond great to it! They watch it very closely and I&#39;ve made a game out of which class can earn the most stars. It&#39;s really great!
Great product!

Love the app. Only problem is that my phone or iPad dies in the middle of the day. The online was is good but I wish it was the pro version, not the lite.
From the dad
by MSheanJones on 2012/11/30 19:50
Downloaded this on the road. Best. App. Ever. The kids can play and laugh and have fun and can see how loud they&#39;re getting.
No Sound From Speakerphone!!!
by Vlad8nastya on 2016/03/27 18:15
Dear developers, please consider fixing or adding function wherein alarm will sound from speakerphone and over Bluetooth speaker. That was the whole point I paid money for this app but now disappointed!!! If that&#39;s fixed, 5*****
Good app
by Jeffster456 on 2014/02/05 23:34
Great app. The kids love watching the meter. Just wish there were more sound options. The sounds when it&#39;s too loud are too aversive.
Great App!!!
by BRad80085 on 2013/08/27 02:27
I encourage every teacher to buy this and will recommend it to all teachers. Great visual for my special day class!
Not sensitive enough
by rjhardin on 2016/09/12 18:43
My students love this app and I like it too, but it needs to be more sensitive. The students can still be quite loud without triggering the alarm. This is with the app at the highest sensitivity.
Pause button
by Fav1987😈 on 2016/08/27 00:42
Would give 5 stars, but the pause button only works like half the time. Please fix this!!!
