In depth reviews of the Sound Scouts app.

Clinical review

: Dr Peter Ou, GP, FRNZCGP, Auckland
Date of review: March 2022
Comments: Only the trial portion of the app was reviewed. Trial/non-paying users are unable to get any results from the tests.

Overall this app is a useful tool in providing users with an initial assessment on hearing competency, through using a series of interactive and stimulating tests. Users can undergo a series of visually pleasing and interactive test activities to ascertain whether a hearing problem is detected. Through the result users are then able to obtain guidance on a plan for next steps.
Safety concerns: None. (Note: this app should only be used to give an indication of hearing and should not replace a formal assessment by a health professional. See article: The importance of using hearing test apps with caution.
New Zealand relevance: Yes, relevant to a New Zealand audience.
