Class Monster Pro – Control the levels of noise in your Classroom



Independent review from “DigiZip” click here to view it

Class Monster Pro is for anyone who has attempted to keep the noise levels under control of a group of youngsters!

This is a fun app that children enjoy and respond to. The app displays graphically the background noise level in a room in a fun and engaging way. As the noise levels get too high, as determined by the adult in charge, the Monster (there are 4 to choose from in the Pro version) gets upset and, if the levels of noise stay unacceptable high, the monster starts crying. On occasions, it may well be that a higher level of background noise is acceptable, depending on the activity the children are engaged in. In this case the responsible adult can adjust the sensitivity of the app so that a higher level of noise is required before the monster gets “upset” and starts crying. There is also a “Damper” setting that helps the user control the movement of the volume indicator.
