Works, but useful only at 0 feet ASL This app does what it says; it reads the data output from the barometer sensor in my phone and displays it in one of several selectable units for me to see. Unfortunately, there is no readily apparent way to calibrate the data, so it believes that 29.65 inHg is the current reading and forecasts rain, when the latest METAR from the airport two miles away says 30.25. Sure, I could keep that 0.6 inHg in my head at all times, but isn't that what these apps are for?
Only beef... Very good app/widget overall. The only thing i would change is the way the y-axis is scaled on the historical chart. It's difficult to quickly determine the pressure value when the point of interest is between 13.609 and 13.781 psi or something. Fixed scaling would be much better.
Missing features The app is missing features you can get in other free apps like altitude measures. It seams that it has some bugs, sometimes it resets log and settings. I keep switching the alam off but some times it is automatically on again.
Works well Nice interface. It gives you a 24 hour view and a real time view. The widget is also neat. I've tried many barometer apps and this is my current favourite Problem: Sometimes the 24h view changes data suddenly and im left wondering if I was looking at old data. Also, the rain alarm gave too many false alarms so I disabled it. Suggestion: configurable rain alarm sensitivity, and the ability to go back through pressure history.
No frills If you're wanting a read out of your built-in barometer, this will give it to you... however it also includes several unattractive useless indicators which are only available in the Pro version.
Power hungry and inaccurate but pretty. Uses about 10% of my battery daily. That's way too much! About as much as my racing game. Another issue is the pressure trend. It was falling like crazy (10hPa per hour) but the widget was showing that it's constant. One positive - it's pretty. Unfortunately I have to uninstall it due to extremely high power use.
- added kPa unit
- fixed atm unit
- fixed variograph scale issue
Display your local barometric pressure and altitude with your Xoom, Nexus, etc.
This app shows the current air pressure and calculates the current altitude
