microphone monitoring

So the microphone monitoring crisis evolved into a simple app which shows the microphone level. You can view it during a phone call to know if the microphone is working.

It can optionally feed the microphone to the speaker & add simple reverb. As usual for a JAVA SDK, compatibility with every version of Android on every phone is a hideous mess.

The minimum playback buffer reported is not always a multiple of the recording buffer, which requires recording 2 full buffers before playback can begin, creating an unnecessary delay. Sometimes it can be forced to use a smaller playback buffer than the reported size, but not consistently enough. None of the sizes are powers of 2, but strange numbers like 3712, 7526.

The free ride with Goog now ends at the Play store. It costs $25 initially to upload anything on the Play store. The Goog has so far not required an annual fee. Their history of making paid services free makes one reluctant to pay up.

Every programming job nowadays requires you to have something on the Play store, so it's caused lots & lots & lots of guys to pay the fee & upload millions of apps.

There are many microphone monitoring apps that look a lot better & have a lot more features, but none with useful level meters. Adding some more effects, a useless graphic EQ, & different options for the microphone routing would make it competitive, but it's a road of useless features for popularity.

The world just needs a microphone monitor for verifying the microphone is working. There are also microphone oscilloscopes which would have done the job.
