No but wondering how it compares to a calibrated mic like the UMM-6 or UMIK-1.

I don't think it's quite the same as using a proper mic and laptop. For one, what software is available for a phone that can do what REW does. Also, the mic capsule is likely not very good (high noise floor, high distortion, roll off).

However, if you can live with some roll off and just need to see a basic in room response, probably a good little mic combined with some paid app that has a quality RTA.

Is REW available on apple devises? Specifically the iPad 1? Or do any of you guys know about any apps that provide a good measurement tool comparable to REW? I don't mind paying for the actuall app itself. I have been stuck with no way of tweaking my MiniDsp 10 by 10 HD as my computer has bitten the dust and now all I have is my older iPad-1 and my iPhone-5. For only $17 dollars this mic seems like a huge bargin! I would expect that it could do everything that an SPL meter can do, but at a fraction of the cost, right?
