    I downloaded iremotedog from the app store (frankly, im shocked that they allowed this app to slip by them).

    I was trying to listen to the command sounds with my earbuds because I happen to be wearing them at the time. I had difficulty listening to the command sounds, so I turned the sound up on the ipod and earbuds all the way.

    After I went through the command sounds that were still difficult to hear, I hit the check mark button which BLASTED OUT MY EARS...ESPECIALLY MY LEFT EAR!!! AT THIS POINT, I AM HAVING DIFFICULTY HEARING OUT OF MY LEFT EAR!! IT IS TOO FAR ABOVE THE RECOMMENDED DECIBLE LEVEL!!!

    Right now, my left ear is buzzing and I've developed a headache.

    Oh, and by the way, my dog did not react to any of the inaudible command sounds...even when I held the iPod close to him.

    THINK TWICE BEFORE DOWNLOADING THIS PROGRAM!!

    No due offense, but I giggled a bit at that.
    You should never turn the volume up the whole way with earbuds.

    Common sense would tell you to limit the volume on your iPod.

    This is entirely your fault…

    Guys, she was trying to hear the sounds the app was making and it wasnt making any. Im assuming they are dog whistle noises. Maybe she asbentmindedly pressed the "check" button and it just happened to make a really loud noise.

    nice. never turn the volume ALL the way up on a dog whistle app/mosquito ringtone app. it will blast your ears to pieces.

    Since it's a app which is used on dogs, you would only ever use the speaker anyways.

    You were listening to a dog whistle app, bit of a dog are we? Ruff Ruff
    [/sarcasm]

    On a serious note, I reccomend checking all the options on an app before turning it all the way up. I did it with my Skullcandies which are really loud at full blast and I swear I actually shat myself.
