Flying Faders's Review of SplReviewed on 12/16/18 1:04 PM
My only wish: I'd love to have the analog-style UI from their $.99 younger brother SPL Meter.

It's amazing that anyone gives this application anything less than a stellar review. It does what it's supposed to do, does it well and reasonably accurately. It is preposterously inexpensive. And it's always here, on my phone, ready to use whenever I need it. I do wish that the reviews were flagged and votes not counted when people simply can't figure out how to use it or don't like the way it looks. It renders the "5 star" voting approach meaningless for those of us who are looking for tools that work. It's a tool, not a toy or a game.

After accidentally losing the calibration of my subwoofer, I discovered that my trusty Radio Shack SPL meter was no longer accurate with sub-100-Hz test tones. I bought SPL and found it agreed stably within 1 dB of my main channel measurements using the old hardware and wideband pink noise. This is more than enough to validate it as a replacement for the RS meter, while it is a lot more cost-effective -- I spent the same amount today on a 9-V battery for the meter as the app cost!

Big battery drain

Best db meter on for iPhone. I've downloaded and used them all. This one is easy to use, has the most parameter settings, and the ability to record peaks. It is however, strictly a db meter. Some other meters show frequency and plots of readings over time. These would be nice features to see added. Ther one feature I think is clearly missing is the ability to utilize the capabilities of the iPhone to actually transmit the captured data. If this were coupled by the ability to record real time readings this would be an awesome application. Having spectral analysis, and perhaps capture, would make it perfect.

I wish people would write reviews within the context of the App. This is an SPL meter that works on you phone. IE a reference tool when you're caught without your pro gear. And as such it works very well. Also, there's a reason for a 105 db threshold on your iPhone. Someone is holding a phone to their ear as you transmit a +db signal. Granted I'm sure no phone manufacturer would knowingly create a reciever that would reach beyond pain and damage thresholds. C'mon people think!

I install professional audio and run sound at various events and I've been using this app for over a year with great success. The readings are very accurate and the app is easy to use. I'm glad this app came out because it is easy to check SPL on the fly without carrying a meter around with me everywhere I go. However, since the latest version came out, it has been crashing my phone every time I use it. It freezes, and my phone becomes completely unresponsive. I cannot even reboot. I would have gave it 5 stars except for this problem. Please fix this app because I use it almost weekly. Thanks.

I have loved this app previously. In fact, I would have always given this app five stars until this version. I have been using this app for years now and I have always used the 'dark metal' color scheme. Now the only option is white. The white color option is TERRIBLE!!!!! As a foh guy, I use this app a lot. But I think I will be looking for another app because the white color scheme adds extra light to foh and the white is extremely harsh on the eyes. If you have not updated to the newest version, don't. It's not worth it.
