More Test Equipment in Your Pocket
Author: Grayson Evans, Training Department


This month's tip is about some great new (since I last wrote about it) CI apps for the iphone/iPod touch. I would like to pass along my experience with two iphone apps that I use all the time in the field and I think you'll find very helpful. A network test app and an audio test app.

An app I'd like to recommend is AudioTools by Studio Six Digital. This app is really a package of professional-grade audio and acoustic analysis apps bundled together. First I want to say that this app is a lot of fun to use. The graphics are very realistic and, I swear, the SPL meter (see below) looks and acts so much like the real (Radio Shack) thing I can't tell em apart.

I'm thinking about getting Messon Speaker Meter. Looks useful for $2.99. Want to get a basic frequency response with ease and little cost.

Anyone use it?

You're going to be waiting for a while. The joys of being an early adopter....

Anyone know of a comparable Android app?

Sound meter, not sure how accurate it is..

Gtech Net Tools seems pretty good, i just got it after reading this, but it worked great the 1st time i used it.

Sounds interesting, but how is the mic input on the iPhone? Is it aligned to what a human voice is so would it be skewed data at best.
