A Noise Level Meter built to help control the noise levels of groups of children, in a Fun and Engaging way.
This is a fun app that children enjoy and respond to. It's a real boon to any adult who needs to control the levels of noise of a group of children.
For the responsible adult it is like having a virtual assistant with you, constantly monitoring noise levels and letting the children know in a fun and engaging way if noise levels have reached an unacceptable level.
In tests we have found when using this app with groups of children peer pressure alone is generally sufficient to control noise levels.
Summary of Features
• Displays graphically the background noise level in a room in a fun and engaging way.
• Allows the tolerable noise level to be adjusted to cater for those "louder activities" as well compensating for banging doors and other sudden noises with the "sensitivity" and "dampening" sliders.
• When the predefined noise level is exceeded for more than 3 seconds:
1) An audible Alarm is sounded (this can be switched ON or OFF)
2) The App appears to shatter the screen of the Device (this can be switched ON or OFF)
3) A counter, displayed on the noise meter, is incremented by one. Keeping track of the number of “Too Noisy" alarms.(this can be switched ON or OFF)
• There is a built-in "Star Awards" rewards system. It can operated in two modes:
- Achievement Mode
In this mode a Star is awarded each time the Class keep their noise under control for a pre-determined period of time. This can be from 1 to 15 minutes.
Normally, if the class triggers the alarm in this mode they will lose the Star currently running, however, there is also a switch that, if set to ON, will remove an additional Star every time the Class cause the “Too Noisy” alarm to be triggered.If students get all 10 stars a "Super Star Award" is displayed. Stars can also be manually Awarded and removed by the responsible adult.
- Session Mode
In this mode the Teacher sets the length of time for a complete session. This can be any length of time. Perhaps for a full lesson (e.g. 1 hour 10 minutes) or for a time period set to complete a specific task (e.g. 20 minutes).
The app will take the session time and divide it by 10 (the maximum number of Stars that can be Won in any one session). The Stars are then awarded at that rate. For example if the Teacher sets the session time to 60 minutes then one Star Awards will be awarded every 6 minutes (60 minutes / 10 Stars = 6 minutes per Star)
• Keep things fresh with over 200 Dial / Background Theme combinations
• The "Alarm Counter" can be reset or disabled completely.
If the noise level is acceptable a happy smiling contented graphic is displayed. If the levels of noise increase beyond what the responsible adult has determined as acceptable, the graphic changes to reflect the unacceptable noise level. Once the level of noise returns to an acceptable level the graphic automatically returns to the happy contented one, however, if the volume of noise remains unacceptably high for more than 3 seconds...an audible alarm is sounded (this can be turned on and off) and the screen of the device appears to shatter! Also, the "Alarm Counter" on the meter is incremented by one (this can be zeroed at any time with a reset button).

Ratings and Reviews
Even the kids request it!
It works great! I teach first through third grade art, it can get a little crazy in there if I’m not on top of it. Too noisy is the best assistant, and the kids even enjoy it: Students monitor each other and will request it so that the classroom can be quiet so they can concentrate. I have been using it for at least a couple of years. I would give it a five if they would get some new background images. I’m tired of these images and would like more. But it is a lifesaver!
Nice App - 1 Suggestion
This app has been very helpful for our situation. The decibel meter is very accurate and the display options are nice.
My only suggestion and request is that the number of seconds before the warning alarm goes off can be changed. Currently, this is set at 4 seconds, but it would be very helpful if this number could be adjusted.
I love Too Noisy Pro and so do my students! It makes station time run smoothly and the students work at a very low level (or they're not talking at all). They even encourage each other to "keep it down" if they see the meter move. I've enjoyed the additional background themes and hope you add some more soon! My students love the cat, dog, and snowman backgrounds. Thank you for a great app!
