Anyone who has attempted to keep the noise levels under control of a group of youngsters will appreciate this simple, fun, and engaging app. A fun app that children enjoy and respond to.
"Too Noisy Starter" displays graphically the background noise level in a room.
This “STARTER” version of the popular “Too Noisy Pro” app is designed to give the teacher a flavour of the capabilities of the “Pro” version. Users can upgrade to the Pro version (with features such as “Star Awards”, Audible Alarms, Multiple Themes, granular controls and numerous other fun features) from inside the App.
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.
So how does it work?
If the noise level is acceptable a happy, smiling, contented character is displayed.
If the levels of noise increases beyond what the responsible adult has determined as acceptable the character puts his fingers in his ears and background graphic changes to reflect the unacceptable noise level.
Once the level of noise returns to an acceptable leve, l the background graphic reverts back and the character returns to the happy contented one.
On occasions, it may well be that a higher level of background noise is acceptable, depending on the activity the children are engaged in. In this case the responsible adult can adjust the sensitivity of the app so that a higher level of noise is required before the graphic changes.
In addition there is a “Damper Setting”. This “dampens” the amount of movement of the needle. This helps reduce the impact of any sudden noises such as doors slamming or someone sneezing.
Where projectors, TV's or monitors are used, for example in classrooms, the image of the app can be mirrored to these devices so that the noise levels of larger groups of children can be controlled. Note: This feature is only available with the iPad 2, iPhone 4s and later devices and will require additional apps and/or hardware.
We have included support for the latest version of iOS as well as all the new Apple devices, as well as fixing a few bugs!
This is a useful tool in it's own right, but please use this Free version of Too Noisy to discover if the PRO version is likely to work for you.

Great for my autistic son
It’s really good for teaching my son that he is too loud when stiming. Suggestion: with remote learning my son needs to learn to speak up when talking to the teacher. Is there anyway you can have a reverse option to get him to speak louder?
Wow wow wow
So I love this app it helps quiet down my room, I think the starter version could have some more features, because I don’t think you should spend money on apps, but other then that it is A~M~A~Z~I~N~G
Holds everyone accountable
We keep our volume low. Adults and kids. Great because everyone loves yelling for some reason.
