Awesome app! A must have if you care about your health and city.

Great app one of a kind. Air quality monitoring app in a class of its own

It helps a lot to know when pollution is high. I always have medical breathing issues that I need to be careful of. Thanks for the help!

App seems to work well. Data appears to correlate reasonably well with I've tried other apps like Air Visual that don't appear to correlate with anything and give nonsensical readings. My only gripe is with the widget. Appears to waste a lot of space (may be different for someone with larger font setting on their phone, my font is set to extra small, so there's a lot of dead space). But seriously, what's with the big stupid ugly cartoon head taking up half the widget real estate?

Its hard to read parts of the app. Im'm legallt blind and there are words over each other. If the print was larger & bolder with outlines it would be much easier to read. Audible sound would be amazing as well with notifications. It's very difficult to program cities of the addresses and locations into the system. You need to have more options when programing locations and there needs to be a setting where you can input your health information and set it up so the app will alert the air quality.

I can't attest to the accuracy, based on what I see published elsewhere, it's not "wrong". But is it spot on for the reading at my house? Dunno. What I can say is that it is easy to use! I like the layout and the hour by hour readings. When I wake up short of breath I can see that at 4am the air was really bad because of the smoke and is much better at 8am. If there is anything I don't like is the area map. The color only shows on the roads. Do it as an overlay so we can see the coast!
