Like the scope of info available. This has good potential to be very useful for me, but without any definition of "very far" or ability to see even approximate location, I get no sense of how accurate the information is. How far is "very far" - 10, 20, 50, 100 miles? Is it in the same region or a comparable location? App is useless to me without any definition of "very far". Don't even need the super sekrit location, just any idea at all of where the data come from. Info is not in website FAQ.

This app was amazing for about a week, and then it switched from a very near sensor to very far. No longer accurate, unfortunately, so I had to find another forecaster. Tried sending a message to support team but never got a response. If the sensor problem got sorted out I'd highly recommend, though! The interface is awesome and it's super convenient when working properly!

REVISED 2020-06-06 —— I downloaded 8-10 pollen/allergy apps and this one was my keeper because of its relative accuracy (for my area anyway; YMMV), its privacy (doesn't ask for *any* permissions), and its clear, user-friendly UI. And it gets better with each release. The recent UI redesign in 1.4.0 that features an at-a-glance bar graph of current conditions and forecasts in 2-hour increments is fantastic! Clicking the ">" to view more gets you a line-graph forecast for each allergen that shows 3 days at a time. —— The "How do you feel" journal has been vastly improved the not only let users report symptoms, but also to customize which symptoms you're asked to report. There are a few UX issues (there's a field for entering notes, but it's hard to find), that will likely get smoothed out in the next couple releases. But, the journal needs to ask if you've taken any allergy meds, so it's clear if your symptoms are being tamped down or not in each entry, and there needs to be a way to add entries for a previous date. Also, a calendar view would be great, so users to get an at-a-glance view of trends in their symptoms. —— But more than anything, I'd like an alert feature, so PollenWise could, for example, notify me in advance when tree pollen will get above a certain level. (I'm keeping one other pollen app *only* because it does this, but it's not as accurate as PollenWise).

Hi Rob, thanks for the extensive input! This is a belated reply, but you'll be pleased to know that Pollen Wise has notification settings you'll want to turn on. From the app: click on "More" and you'll see notification settings there. Hope that helps!
