This app works, but you need to hook it up to a real Geiger Counter in order for it to work! I thought the whole point of the app was to not need an external device! This thing is a big fat pile of doo doo!
First it was just the schematics for building your own detector that was part of the pro version. Now they took away features like adjusting threshold and time duration from the lite and moving it to pro only. Kickstarter funders should at least be given this functionality to adjust threshold and time duration. But still to take away features when it was originally included is not right. Update for version 1.04: Still didn't add back the features they took away from the previous version. The app used to look like the first screenshot posted but now you can only get that with the pro version. Rating still stands at 1 star unless they put back the features.
I need help with this app. I have a DRSB-88 geiger counter and some old tableware and on wikipedia it says that the old tableware is around 400 cpm. On this app it says its thousands of cpm. I dont know if im using it wrong or not. Help!
(You cannot measure the radiation only by using this application program) iPhone can be used as a radiation detector, as it is called Geiger counter, by connecting the voice output of the Pocket Geiger Counter with the microphone input. For more information about Pocket Geiger Counter, see http://www.radiation-watch.org Sensor: PIN photo diode x8 (reverse biased and shielded) Detectable radiations: Beta and Gamma radiation Measurement range: 0.05uSv/h~10mSv/h (Calibrated using Cs-137), 0.01cpm~300000cpm Measuring time: about 5 minutes at the dose rate of 0.05uSv/h Energy response: :662keV~1333keV - uSv/h and its counting error calculation - CPM calculation - Manual setting interface for time range and threshold *Pro version only - Oscilloscope *Pro version only - Detection log visualization *Pro version only - Circuit diagram *Pro version only *NOTE* We are making the smart radiation detector that everyone can buy at a low price especially in and around Fukushima.
