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

Simple, straightforward, does what I need it to

I’m an automotive technician, I use this app to tell me the station pressure of where I’m at, so that I can check the accuracy of the BARO sensor on cars I’m working on. I like that that it can display in inHg, kPa, psi, and others, because different cars display using different units. For those who are unfamiliar, “station pressure” is the actual barometer reading right here, right now, at your phone, at whatever altitude you are at. Because altitude affects barometer readings, “Pressure at sea level” has been adjusted for altitude to give you just that; what the pressure would be at sea level. Weather forecasters give you this reading. But if you’re working on cars like I am, you need to know your station pressure.

Your joints-every single one of them is it’s own separate capsule- meaning it has its own pressure. I have patients who say they can tell when it’s going to rain or get cold. No, they can tell when the pressure’s dropping- which is almost always accompanied by some type of weather change, rain, cold or otherwise-and your joints internal pressure is “feeling” the External pressure change. High pressure is typically fair weather, a dropping barometer means change is coming-soon. Your astute assessment regarding your joints is correct-if someone tells you it’s a myth-they’re referring to your ability to discern rainy/cold weather-which is only partly true-I’m getting redundant. Most things in nature are in tune with the barometer- I notice I get hungry when the barometer drops-as does most of the animal kingdom, the fishing is typically better during a falling barometer. Alas, I’m a novice myself at setting the barometer-sorry I couldn’t be of more help there.

Doesn’t work.

The barometer may or may not be correct. The altitude is over 200 ft. Low. If the altimeter were correct I would be under water!!! At least it was free and yes it will be deleted.

Accurate And Useful

I use this on my iPad, and found it to be very accurate within 0.02hg of what the airport, 20-miles away, is reporting. I use this to gage weather related pain levels, and really like the ability to establish a set point to determine pressure trends.

not as i expected. i have other weather apps less complicated.

Apple Watch Face

Ok app just wish they had a way to display the info on the Apple Watch Face. Would be 4 stars if they made that happen.

Great app!

I suffer from a problem where I often experience a feeling of pressure behind and inside my ears. I have often suspected that it is related to barometric pressure in the atmosphere. An app like this helps to confirm my suspicions. It is also an attractive looking app, and best of all, it is free.

Helps verify what I’m feeling

I started using this after trying others normally suggested for people with migraines affected by barometric pressure changes. I don’t comprehend all the technical explanations but I can now use this app to verify what the pain has told me. I don’t have the “extras” but plan to try them when it’s easier to read and comprehend through pain and nausea. I spent years trying to find and understand my triggers and thought barometric was one but needed an app showing it as numbers and on a graph to see how small the changes can be that make my migraine spin out of control. Verifying it gives me the knowledge to take actions that can help keep it from being as debilitating. Thank you!

Sweet app!

Simple to use and can be used by those not familiar with meteorology by simply reading the help screen. Excellent wide range of choices for display metrics. A great feature to add to the app would be to let the user set a time period (or exact times) fir the app to weaken itself and take readings so a complete history can be stored. Lacking that, perhaps the ability to import GRB files. Thanks for the app!

Only records when you open the app

This app looks nice and has some cool features, but even though it has a "Trends" page (which tracks the barometric pressure over a few weeks), it only records the pressure when you open the app. I was hoping/expecting it to pull pressure data from a weather database, which would make the trends page more useful. I've been trying to see if my sinus headaches are linked to specific changes in barometric pressure, but unless I'm checking this app every minute (it doesn't record the pressure in the background either), this is not a very useful app.
