(2★) Inaccurate
Doesn't seem very accurate on this iPhone 5S. Never goes below 46 dB no matter how quiet the environment really is, and never goes
above the high 70's no matter how loud. It's as though the iPhone is

(2★) A bit disappointed
With all the reviews I expected more. Not remotely accurate. I don't need it dead nuts but silence should be close to zero and
it runs around 40db even fully adjusted down. It will probably still w

Back story: I have the iPhone 4S. The plan was to measure the noise in my car going 60 mph. Then test drive new vehicles at the
same speed and compare the new with the old and the new with the new.

I looked at a ton of different apps before I purchased this one. It's a nice app and it's accurate. I only wish I could record
