About this app

Ears popping or hurting on a flight?

EarPlanes+ measures cabin air pressure in real-time during a flight and sends a notification precisely when EarPlanes earplugs should be worn to prevent ear pain.

For over 25 years, EarPlanes earplugs have been helping flyers prevent ear pain and popping due to the rapid air pressure changes inflight, EP+ completely takes the guesswork out of when they need to be worn.

EP+ utilizes the air pressure sensor (barometer) built-in to your smartphone and the app will send a push notification when air pressure becomes unstable, even if you are using other apps.

The air pressures experienced during a flight is quite a journey, see it right before your eyes for the first time with EP+

Not ME
December 2, 2023
The idea of this app is awesome. It appears to work for some and not all, and I'm unfortunately I'm part of the group that it doesn't work. I gave all necessary permission. The app runs in the background and the barometer service runs. However, the air pressure does not change at take off, in flight, or landing. I read how the app works and that it's supposed to have permissions to the phones location service. however, I was never prompted for that, nor is there a way to manually add it.

I love this app. Since using it my ears haven't hurt and I don't have to keep the earplanes in the entire flight. My only critiques are: 1) I do wish it vibrated to tell me to take them out/put them in. The app does notify me on my lock screen but if I'm not looking at my phone I won't see it. I'd love to be able to keep it in my pocket and be told via vibration (maybe an app-specific one that's not the same as a normal vibration so you know it's the app) 2) Directions on how to insert them

The Ear Wyrm

Excellent tool for those with poor eustachian tubes. I often have issues equalizing my ears, particularly on descents. The app makes it very apparent when I need to put in my earplugs. I hadn't even realized my phone had sensors for barometric pressure!
