The app is a simple interface of just a few parameters of user variables, in terms of a starting frequency, an ending frequency, and a frequency-range sweep timescale of the user’s discretion; ostensibly of the range amassable in CPU bit-rate quantization capability of the device that is being used; at this point in time, speeds up to just over 210,000 Hz, or so, are capably produced on the app, of the Hz ( hertz: cycles per second)  frequency sweep range. All of the user-selectable options are Hz input values. There’s an on/off switch, a “rever
