Barometer & Altimeter Pro 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. 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

  • Apple Watch Face

    By Eye guy22
    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!

    By jdfarley
    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

    By GotThis101
    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!

    By Bearsjulia
    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

    By Roganberg
    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.
  • Great App

    By marmota monax
    Accurate and simple to use. Great addition for those who enjoy tracking weather.
  • Notifications?

    By JTG1315
    Great app but it would be better if there was a notification feature such as when the pressure changes rapidly over a set period of time.
  • Simple and perfect

    By Dogratty
    As simple as the old barometer on my wall and couldn’t be better! No clutter, no extraneous useless clutter. The ‘set’ feature is great to set a baseline. The “trend function” for tracking provides insight for recent and current conditions vs forecast. Many an old salt would tap the barometer and give a forecast to any who’d listen. It was simple science, not some old magic.
  • Meaningless trend line

    By Smilodon77
    As others have mentioned, this app needs to track changes and should run in the background. Perhaps turn on and take a reading every hour? Otherwise the trend line is nearly impossible to interpret.
  • Excellent App.

    By BF7575
    Easy to read, easy to adjust. Have tried several barometer apps. This is ‘the keeper ‘!
