App Description

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. 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 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) - Up to 30d trend visualised with graphs - Interactive timeline on the trend graphs - No internet connection required since the sensor is built into the iPhone 6, 6 Plus and iPad Air 2 - 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 (with more styles in the pipeline) - Fishing Barometer - Two scales on the Barometer - Data export in CSV Format

    So far this APP works great, has never crashed, and give me what I THINK I need. I say, "what I think", because I am a novice. I really don't understand "Station Pressure/Altitude", nor how to set it and why. I know that this is just my ignorance, but it sure would be nice to get some help/essay explanation, etc. so that not only could I set it properly, but more importantly understand what I am looking at! Call me ignorant ... thats ok ... I am! ๐Ÿ˜†. But, the way you get more, NEW users of an APP, is to help those of us that have an interest in understanding pressure and altitude ... what their interrelationship is and how to get accurate readings ! All I know right now, is that my joints start hurting when the pressure drops! It's "accurate" for me to take one more ibuprofen when that is about to (or even already) has dropped. Please help educate me to set this properly for my statistic elevation here in Rio Rancho, NM (5282')
  • Trend is not working in this version

    This is a great Barometer/Altimeter, but as others have mentioned the Trend function is completely broken in this version. The line graph is extremely jagged and jumps wildly up and down; and the value at the end of the line does not even correspond to the currently displayed value. Other than that, the app has a clean, appealing design, and it is easy to read and use.
  • Awesome App!!!

    I'm a simple user; just wanted to 1) see a current barometer reading, and 2) track changes informally against my observed weather. This exactly what I wanted and does it so beautifully and with such absence of fuss that I find myself checking back often...
  • Works Fine in iOS 10.x.x

    Just a brief update. I apologize for not revising sooner. Works fine in iOS 10, and with future OS coming up, "Barometer" is reliable & accurate in the beta versions of iOS 11 that I tested. Love how it's a widget! ๐Ÿ‘ --------- Previous: --------- If safety or health an issue, consider downloading iOS 9.3.5 IPSW file, or restore from your backup. iOS 10 is ok, but still pretty new & can be problematic. -------- From previous versions: Straight out, this app was only off by 2 millibars from an aneroid barometer, calibrated at local NWS station. Tweak difference in elevation and app is right on the money every time! Will be very useful (and safe) for outings to gulf coast during tropical storm / hurricane season. I also like how it matches Apple's clock & 'pro' version has > 1 scale.

    I have RA & I use this regularly to see if my bones will be feeling well that day. Most days are correct! Thanks for the accuracy. :) vick
  • Nothing out there better

    I've tried quite a few barometer apps, & there are a lot of them, and none of them compare to this very easy app, but complex in the inside. I only wish it could be open on the front page, instead of having to access the app...that is the only negative I have. Thanks for helping me determine/predicting my arthritis aches & pains!!
  • Between 3 and 3.5

    I like the simple gauges. I don't like the small font size of the day and time on the movable line. I don't like the time is only in military time. I'd like to see a chart with a line graph of the barometric pressure with the days of the week. Otherwise you have to move the line and read try to read the small font. Paid for the upgrade which I thought would have more features and info. The upgrade isn't worth it. Getting a pretty display option isn't worth the $1.99
  • Accaute and great UI

    Accurate with easy to use UI. I compared with NOAAs 3 day history and it was on point to 1 mb. This app is also lets you at look air pressure over time in different views: 12 hrs, 24 hrs, 3 days etc. I track my correlated air pressure and pain over time and this app is great for that!
