This app uses the barometric pressure sensor found in the iPhone 6, 6s, 7, 8, X (including Plus models) and iPad Air 2, Mini 4 as well as iPad Pro (all sizes) and the newest iPad. The newest Apple Watch model 3 is now supported as well. You need one of these devices in order to use this app! It is not compatible with iPhone SE and older iPhone and iPad devices without this sensor! This App features a Barometer for weather, an Altimeter for outdoor activities, a barometric Trend and a Notification Center Widget. Even without the optional In-App-Purchase this is a fully functional Barometer with absolutely no draw-backs and all important features accessible. Always without ads! (See "Pro Features" at the end) Keep an eye on the barometric pressure and be your own weather forecast! This little app uses only GPS (optional) and the new barometric pressure sensor to calculate the barometric pressure used in weather forecasts. The new iPhones have a barometric pressure sensor built in so this app works completely without internet. The handy marker helps you keep track of changes in the barometric pressure and let's you predict weather changes! Please realize, that a single barometric pressure reading is not enough to tell the current weather situation but the barometric pressure and its change over time is a very good indicator for weather changes! Now you can also see the trend in barometric pressure with graph charts displaying the measurements taken during the last 30 days! (6h, 12h, 24h, 3d, 7d, 14d, 30d) The Altimeter helps you track your altitude changes based on the change of pressure. Just set your reference pressure and altitude in order to use the Altimeter for checking how high up the mountain you have climbed (works for other activities too). The App does not use GPS for the Altimeter. Please Note that on older devices such as the 4S, 5, 5S and 5C as well as on any iPod Touch and iPad Models older than iPad Air 2 or iPad Mini 4 as well as the Apple Watch 1 and 2, this app will not be able to read barometric pressure values and not display any useful information. All basic features, the Barometer, the Altimeter, the Trend and the Widget are completely free to use for everyone and are fully functional at maximum accuracy available. No ads! The only features with restricted access via In-App-Purchase are listed at the end under "Pro Features". Those are nice to have features for power users or those that want to show their support for the App! Features (free for everyone) - Barometer for weather - Altimeter for outdoor activities - Today-View Widget (Barometer) - Watch App - Up to 30d trend visualised with graphs - Interactive timeline on the trend graphs - No internet connection required since the sensor is built into the new iPhones and iPads - Supports 6 different pressure units - Support for 2 different altitude units - Analog Barometer with support for all 6 units - Configurable "displayed accuracy" / number of decimals - Supports setting a custom marker so you can track changes in barometric pressure - Manual altitude setting or automatic altitude updates based on GPS for the Barometer. - GPS Correction. In case your GPS seems to always be 'off' a little you can now fix this easily. - Portrait and Landscape support Pro Features (In-App Purchase required) - Change the Barometer Face - Fishing Barometer - Two scales on the Barometer - Data export in CSV Format
I’m a sailor. Like many others, I use a barometer as an aid to weather forecasting. Both long term and short term variations in barometric pressure provide advance warning of changes in weather conditions, in particular arrival of winds due to approaching fronts or storms, or local thunderstorms. As a frequent solo sailor, I need all the advance warning I can get... This app has all the functionality you could want from a barometer app -display of current pressure in a pleasing and informative way, ability to set a marker at current pressure to quickly track changes over time, and a trend record. I haven’t found anything better. For macro scale weather changes, it is perfect. What I would like to see is (1) a shorter trend timescale, when watching for squalls from localized weather events e.g. thunderstorm activity; and (2) more detailed (frequent) recording of pressure when not using the app, for display later in the trend. Rate of change is a critical parameter when monitoring barometric pressure, and this cannot be determined unless a detailed history is available. Ideally, notification of high rates of change of pressure (even, or perhaps especially, when not using the app) would be fantastic. I would happily pay for this enhanced functionality... other stand alone devices with these features are available, and useful, but expensive. I appreciate, and recommend, the app as it stands... but I’d love that little bit extra functionality.
I’ve always known my migraines are pressure related. I put a marker where I start feeling a migraine, now when I see the pressure dropping close to my marker, I take meds and can usually stop it before it gets bad. This app has been a game changer for me. The only improvement would be if there was a way to set an alarm when it starts dropping.
As titled. Thanks!
Not too useful.
Works great! Easy, clean interface. Includes nice trend graph, and altitude. Easy to calibrate.
Really like this app, would like to see the ability to zoom in on the gauge
Its pouring rain right now and the barometer app says partly cloudy. I realized why- the storms we have in Kentucky during the summer are not from low pressure systems, which dont trip the barometer. Odd. But the app works, i verified it with the NWS barometer.
I want to give this app a 5 star rating, but I don’t understand why it only gives the option to track your location while you’re using it. That means it will only record accurate data while the app is on the screen running. For this app to really be useful, it needs to be able to give accurate readings the whole time the phone is on. That way you can actually track the changes in pressure over time while you are not using the app. Without that, this app is just a toy. The tracking of pressure over time graph is not even close to accurate unless you check the app every minute of the day.
This is a nice app that does exactly what you expect. It’s a clean and intuitive interface even with the ad-free free version. I went with the pro version just to say thanks for the excellent app. It provides multiple units in one display for those who need it.
