Used to record noise from above flat late at night
The App requires you to HOLD down the button to record - not easy if your trying to point the phone to a ceiling with an out stretched arm.. Then the recording only last for 30 seconds.. When trying to record thumping footsteps or someone slamming a door closed trying to time the 30 second recording in anticipation of when the next noise will take place is almost impossible and just to add further misery up pops a message that delays you quickly sending the message or playing it back before sending - which always in my experience stops you from continuing to record the disturbance as it occurs
Basically very poorly designed - surely you press record to activate once let it record for as long as necessary then edit and send like a video clip. I find the App is frustrating.
I downloaded the app on advice of my housing association and local council to prove the excessive noise pollution my son and I have been subjected to for nearly a year (without resolution despite multiple complaints). There is excessive static noise in the background of recordings, so it doesn't always pick up noise despite it being loud enough to hear from neighbours (and I'm deaf in one ear). It has in other cases picked up music and TV noise throughout my flat from next door (I might add next door is actually an adjoining building) when it is extremely loud. Problem is that whilst the housing association accept the noise is excessive, local council refuse to accept 42 recordings stating they don't 'percieve' the noise as excessive as they apparently can barely hear the recordings due to background static etc. Interesting when I can and housing association can (who now won't do anything as the council are refusing to act). Unfortunately once you've sent off the file you have no record of it for yourself to access and listen to. Totally frustrated. Had hoped this would help resolve the issue as it's affecting health. Don't understand why councils and housing associations are recommending the app when they then won't use the evidence generated. App let down by significant background static type noise.
Really is a waste of time!
I was encouraged by the council to use this app to gain audio evidence to help resolve a (still ongoing) very noisy neighbour problem that I’ve had for over two years, I successfully and easily recorded 5 x 30 second audio clips that were clear (apart from the hiss on playback) and quite loud each day, complete with all required details over a two week period and guess what..... the council said the record levels were insufficient!!!!!!!!! This app really is a complete waste of time and effort, it gives you false hope of resolving ongoing noise problems, but you will surely find this out for yourself if you use it, your neighbours noise will probably sound loud in your room while recording them (like ours did) but on play back the levels are low even at full phone volume and this is what the council go on, in the end this will cause you depression and anxiety resulting in the council suggesting you need counselling (it gets them out of doing their job), I would give this app 0 stars if it would let me 👎☹️
