Frequently Asked Questions

Compatibility

What if my phone doesn’t have an audio jack port?

You can connect the Smart Peak Flow meter to a smartphone without an audio jack port with a suitable adapter recommended by your phone manufacturer.

For iPhones, we recommend using a genuine Apple Lightning-to-jack adapter, which you add to your order here.

For Android devices, we recommend the Google Pixel USB-C-to-jack adapter. You can buy one here.

The audio port is located at the bottom of my phone. How can I use it better?

With the auto-rotation feature on your smartphone, you can turn your phone upside down and the app screen will auto-rotate so that you can see it when doing your blow tests. Make sure that auto-rotation is enabled on your phone.

If your smartphone has no auto-rotation feature, then we suggest using a 1m audio extension cable (4-pole 3.5mm) for the best user experience. You can buy one here.

My iPhone’s screen does not rotate upside down. How can I fix this?

The upside down auto-rotate feature on the newer iPhone models with a notch has been disabled by Apple (due to Face ID).

We recommend connecting Smart Peak Flow with the Apple Lightning adapter and a 1m audio extension cable (4-pole 3.5mm) for the best user experience. You can buy both here.

Why does my lightning to audio/headphone jack adaptor not work?

If you are using a non-Apple lightning to audio jack adaptor, the device may not work as expected.

We suggest you purchase a genuine Apple lightning to audio jack adaptor. You can buy one here.
