TF101 Sadly on 4.0.3 .27 the app gets a force to close but it is a great idea to get more use out of your phone or tablet.
Interesting but Heavy (~80x) CPU consumption w.r.t. peers The weather forecasting Alert can be annoying: "it might rain" seems less sophisticated than the dial I remember on the wall of my Dad's den -where, at least, you could "calibrate" the background scale to the gauge It doesn't take into account Climate Zones nor regional seasonal trends. I.e., semi-arid So.Cal. vs. Honolulu.
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.
METAR consistency Those who complain that the app differs from nearby METARs (Meteorological Aviation Reports) have to understand that METAR pressures are ALWAYS corrected to mean sea level (MSL). The app simply states your local pressure as reported by the barometric sensor in the phone, assuming your phone actually has one.
- added kPa unit
- fixed atm unit
- fixed variograph scale issue
Display your local barometric pressure and altitude with your Xoom, Nexus, etc.
