    It provides one light reading and does not change when light levels change

    I live in a cold climate and grow tropical plants indoors. This app does the same job as expensive light meters flawlessly ensuring optimal positioning for grow lights. Love it.

    Checked against 2 actual light meters and with no reference to field of view it's not in anyway accurate enough

    I compared results with a real exposure meter and difference was 4-8 f-stops. Even guessing gives better results than this app.
