Batu69 posted a topic in Mobile ManiaIn this article, I have compiled a list of 5 free Sound meter Android apps to measure environmental noise. These Android apps will measure the noise around you and display a real-time graph of the noise level readings. These apps will tell you the current noise level and other stats like peak noise, minimum, and average noise levels. Some of the apps can even show the current noise levels in the Android notification area. This allows you to quickly check noise levels any time you want. However, these noise meter apps can’t measure higher noise levels due to the limitations of devices. Some of the noise meter apps also let you measure the light intensity. Sound Meter by Smart Tools: Sound Meter is a free Android app to measure noise from your surrounding environment. It uses the microphone in your device to measure noise around you in decibels. A real-time graph of the noise level is also plotted by the app and you can also get to know the smallest, average, and the highest noise level value. The best part is that you can pause the noise recordings and even reset it. It also keeps the phone screen on while monitoring noise around you. Do note that it can’t measure the high noise levels due to the limitations of devices. However, it can be used perfectly to monitor noise levels in homes, traffic, or in a library, etc. In addition to this, it also gives you the option to capture the screenshot of the app with just a tap on the Camera button. The pro version of the app also allows you to log the recorded noise levels to a CSV file. Read Sound Meter detailed review. Noise Meter: Noise Meter is another free Android sound meter app to log environmental noise. It updates the noise levels in the real-time and shows you the peak, mean, and minimum noise levels in decibels. This app gives you the option to choose whether you want to keep the screen on while measuring noise level readings, hide the status bar, and see the peak, max, and min noise levels. Another good aspect of this app is that it supports multiple languages like Arabic, English, Portuguese, Spanish, Russian, etc. In addition to noise, you can also measure light intensity in lux. In order to measure light intensity, open the app preferences and then Input>>Input type>>Light. After that, you can see the real-time measure of light intensity on its main interface. Another exciting feature of this sound meter app is that you can run the measurement process in the background and change its update frequency from 0.5 sec to 10 minutes. Sound Meter by Abc Apps: Sound Meter by Abc Apps is a free Android app to measure sound pressure levels of your surroundings. Just like other noise meter apps on my list, it shows a real-time gauge of the noise levels.

In addition to this, you can also pause and reset noise measuring process. You can also choose to keep the screen on while recording noise levels. Check it out from the link above. Sound Analyzer App: Sound Analyzer App is another Android app to test noise levels. It is quite an advanced Android noise meter app as it shows various other sound parameters as well which I am not quite aware of. So, any person with expertise in sound analyzing can take the best out of this app. As per our intentions. we just need to measure the noise level from our surroundinds which this app can do effortlessly in the real-time. Just like most of the other apps, it shows a real-time graph of the noise levels and also the peak and minimum sound level. In addition to this, you can also pause, resume, and reset the noise measurement process with this app. Deciber: Deciber is the last Android app on my list to measure environmental noise levels. An Interesting feature of Deciber is that it uses the camera of your phone to display the photo of your surroundings in the app interface. You can then take a screenshot which will capture the noisy thing or any noisy environment with the sound pressure level. After that, you can share the captured screenshot to anyone to prove that you were in a noisy environment or so. It measures the noise in decibels and frequency in hertz and also it updates the noise readings in real-time. Read the detailed review of Deciber. Verdict: In this article, I introduced you to 5 free Android apps to measure noise levels. So, if you want to check out the current noise level in your surroundings, then these apps will show you a real-time update of it. All the apps are quite similar as they show a real-time noise level and update it every few seconds but some apps provide some additional features like measuring light intensity, change the update frequency, measure noise levels in the background, and many others.

krkanna posted a topic in Software UpdatesCompact Tray Meter - CPU & RAM monitoring utility. Version: 1.1 Size: 787K Compatibility: Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 (32/64bit) DescriptionIt is true that there is a lot of software that report CPU and RAM usage, but almost all of it display it on a desktop or in some other area of the screen that is generally obscured by other windows ... that makes it not so useful. This compact utility displays the real-time CPU and RAM usage right on the taskbar's notification area (next to the system clock) that is always visible: Special features: Real-time reporting of the CPU activity.Real-time reporting on the system RAM usage.Color coding of the readout can indicate the CPU/RAM load even without seeing the actual numbers.This program does not require installation, or administrative privileges to operate and can be run from any location on your hard drive.This program also obtains the following information about the CPU(s) (or, Central Processing Units) on your system:Brand name of the CPU.CPU architecture, i.e. 32-bit, 64-bit, etc.CPU clock reading.Number of physical and logical CPU cores.Number of NUMA nodes.Information about L1/L2/L3 caches.Additional technical information about CPU, reported directly by the die itself.This program also obtains the following information about the RAM (or system memory):Capacity of each RAM module in bytes.Form factor (DIMM, RIMM, etc.)Memory type (SDRAM, DDR, DDR-2, etc.)Type detail (synchronous, nonvolatile, etc.)RAM speed (566 ns, 800 ns, etc)Data width (64 bits, etc)Interleave information.Serial, manufacture's, SKU and part numbers on RAM modules.And more, where available.We also attempted to write this program with as small of an imprint on the system resources as possible to improve the accuracy of its reporting.SynopsisBesides retrieving the wealth of technical information about your system, that of course can be used to verify the authenticity of your hardware, a novice user can use this utility to monitor the "health" of their PC. The rule of thumb is pretty simple: If the CPU usage starts to peak regularly at over 50% this means that there's some activity going on in your system. This generally indicates some work being done on the background, and if you're not aware of anything going on that you requested, this may indicate some faulty background program, or even a virus. Getting rid of that will greatly speed up your computer and improve usability. The system RAM reading can also indicate a system that is either low on memory, if RAM usage peaks at 75% or more, or that some program needs to be closed to stabilize the system. The bottom line is this, use this free tool to check the workability of your computer. We use it all the time and want to share with you! ManualAvailable offline in the installation package.

BatteryBar displays relevant information on your laptop's battery, such as full runtime and battery wear. With its help you can keep track on your battery's lifespan and figure out how to take better care of your laptop. The installer includes a BatteryBar toolbar and floating toolbar, and you can select which of these components you want to install (or both). It also offers support for additional themes and language translations. The interface of the tool consists of a very small frame which resembles a battery meter. It shows the current percentage of your remaining battery, but you can hover the mouse cursor over it to get additional details. Therefore, you can find out the current percentage level, capacity, charge rate, status, elapsed time, full runtime and battery wear. The unregistered version does not boast many functions, but you can unlock the pro edition for a limited time, in order to use BatteryBar at its fullest. For example, you can select a battery power scheme, make the frame stay on top of other windows, as well as pick a battery profile to display in a graphical representation, based on the charge or discharge factor. However, the main configuration is done from the Settings panel, as BatteryBar sports numerous options to alter. You can use separate battery profiles for each power scheme, hide the tool when the battery is fully charged, change the font style, and show individual battery status popups for dual batteries. It is also possible to use custom sounds for critical and low battery warnings, automatically close notifications after a particular time frame, adjust the warning levels (based on remaining minutes till discharge), disable the Aero effect, specify a power scheme to automatically switch the laptop to when it's plugged in or on battery mode, as well as log all details and reset all settings and stored battery profiles. BatteryBar is fairly light on the system resources, has a good response time and provides accuracy regarding the battery levels. We have not encountered any problems throughout our evaluation. In conclusion, BatteryBar delivers a simple solution for monitoring the battery status, yet allows plenty of configuration steps for power users.
