Customer Reviews

Very Useful but One Request

This is great for documenting sound levels but would soar with the addition of a Date and Time and GPS stamp. For noise complaints that would be a crucial addition and put this one above the crowd.

Great! But....

It would be nice if it allowed me to go into a landscape view when I tilt my phone over. Just a a personal preference. And nothing a quick up date can't fix! Thanks!

It used to work, but recently stopped

I've had this app for a few years and barely used it. I tried several times recently to use it, but to no avail. I'm deleting it and going with a different one. Not sure what the problem is (or was).
