Sound Level Meter is in the 4th set of the Smart Tools collection (noise).
SPL(sound pressure level) meter app uses your phone mic to measure noise volume in decibels(db), and shows a reference. We had calibrated many android devices with the actual sound level meter with dB(A).
REMEMBER!! The smart phone microphones were aligned to human voice (300-3400Hz, 40-60dB). Therefore the maximum values are LIMITED by the manufacturers. The very loud sound(100+db) cannot be recognized. Moto Droid(max.100), Galaxy S3(81dB), Galaxy Note(91dB), Galaxy S2(98dB)...
See the 4-5nd pictures. Many devices had been calibrated by the real sound level meter with dB(A).

John, I have 4 12 dd's in 11000 watts and my car hits about 156.3 and yes your ears hurt but I'm used to it. I've been in a car that hits 163.7
Nice Pretty cool app, seems to be accurate. Droid X
Won't accurately show anything above 70 decibels. - HTC Incredible
A great to for selling sound insulation to the low level audiophile.
Don't work properly!
Interesting app.I had to adjust the calibration. Wish there was a tutorial to do it at start up. Will see how it works in the real world soon.
Works flawlessly (HTC Wildfire)
Looks good but won't work on x8 just stays stuck on 90 still not working months after.
Fairly accurate compared next to a professional calibrated osha meter. But limited to 83db
Great on my tab. Helps me draw attention of people who are too loud.
