This app consist of a quick test of 15 questions regarding situations where you might have hearing problems. After answering them, they will tell you whether they think you need to monitor your hearing or not. You will then be able to find an audiologist via the Internet.
There's also a brief explanation about Audiology and NOWiHEAR (the internet location for information about audiology) in case you want to know more about it. In addition, you can watch a video about the same topic for further information.
The main problem with this app is that the hearing test is done with a written test, not a listening one. I'd find hard to believe that a listening test in a smartphone application would check your hearing correctly, let alone a written test of only fifteen questions where you can easily lie.
AuDNet, Inc. is the creator of Hearing Test, their first and only app in the market. We'd recommend an improvement on the test method.

The NOWiHEAR app, developed by AuDNet, Inc., provides consumers with a FREE quick hearing test adapted from the Better Hearing Institute (BHI) revision of the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery’s “Five-minute Hearing Test” and instant access to the best Audiologists in the U.S. via NOWiHEAR.com's Audiologist Locator. The BHI test was validated by Ruth Bentler, Ph.D. and Sergei Kochkin, Ph.D.as an effective predictor of hearing loss in a study including nearly 1,000 patients. Additionally, the app provides users with a description of Audiology and why licensed Audiologists are best equipped to handle individual hearing health needs.
