Have you ever listened to light? With Light Detector, now you can!
Light Detector transforms any natural or artificial light source it encounters into sound. Light Detector is easy to use! Just run the application and point your iPhone camera in any direction. You will hear a higher or lower sound depending on the intensity of the light.
If you are blind, Light Detector helps you to be more independent in many daily activities. At home, point your iPhone towards the ceiling to understand where the light fixtures are and whether they are switched on. In a room, move the device along the wall to check if there is a window and where it is. You can find out whether the shades are drawn by moving the device up and down.
Bring Light Detector with you to discover what is around you at the speed of light.

App uses camera not light sensors it seems

This app is really lame. I just threw my money. It uses the camera not light sensor and checks frames/images that are captured and measure intensity of pixels. So lame. You can point to your window at night while the room is fully illuminated and it gives 0%. This app also generates an annoying sound also. I thought initially it will use the light sensor of IPhone 7 plus.
