Need help ! 3/5
So far this APP works great, has never crashed, and give me what I THINK I need. I say, "what I think", because I am a novice. I really don't understand "Station Pressure/Altitude", nor how to set it and why. I know that this is just my ignorance, but it sure would be nice to get some help/essay explanation, etc. so that not only could I set it properly, but more importantly understand what I am looking at! Call me ignorant ... thats ok ... I am! 😆. But, the way you get more, NEW users of an APP, is to help those of us that have an interest in understanding pressure and altitude ... what their interrelationship is and how to get accurate readings !
All I know right now, is that my joints start hurting when the pressure drops! It's "accurate" for me to take one more ibuprofen when that is about to (or even already) has dropped. Please help educate me to set this properly for my statistic elevation here in Rio Rancho, NM (5282')
Trend is not working in this version 3/5
This is a great Barometer/Altimeter, but as others have mentioned the Trend function is completely broken in this version. The line graph is extremely jagged and jumps wildly up and down; and the value at the end of the line does not even correspond to the currently displayed value.
Other than that, the app has a clean, appealing design, and it is easy to read and use.
Awesome App!!! 5/5
What's already been said by others that gave a high rating!!!
Very clean, works great!!! :-)
Scratched an itch 5/5
I'm a simple user; just wanted to 1) see a current barometer reading, and 2) track changes informally against my observed weather. This exactly what I wanted and does it so beautifully and with such absence of fuss that I find myself checking back often...
Works Fine in iOS 10.x.x 5/5
Just a brief update. I apologize for not revising sooner.
Works fine in iOS 10, and with future OS coming up, "Barometer" is reliable & accurate in the beta versions of iOS 11 that I tested.
Love how it's a widget! 👍
If safety or health an issue, consider downloading iOS 9.3.5 IPSW file, or restore from your backup. iOS 10 is ok, but still pretty new & can be problematic.
From previous versions:
Straight out, this app was only off by 2 millibars from an aneroid barometer, calibrated at local NWS station.
Tweak difference in elevation and app is right on the money every time!
Will be very useful (and safe) for outings to gulf coast during tropical storm / hurricane season.
I also like how it matches Apple's clock & 'pro' version has > 1 scale.
Wish I could give 0 star rating 1/5
Barometer stuck on 29.6 for weeks after updating, deleting, and reinstalling
This is Great! 5/5
I have RA & I use this regularly to see if my bones will be feeling well that day. Most days are correct! Thanks for the accuracy. :) vick
Nothing out there better 5/5
I've tried quite a few barometer apps, & there are a lot of them, and none of them compare to this very easy app, but complex in the inside. I only wish it could be open on the front page, instead of having to access the app...that is the only negative I have. Thanks for helping me determine/predicting my arthritis aches & pains!!
Between 3 and 3.5 3/5
I like the simple gauges. I don't like the small font size of the day and time on the movable line. I don't like the time is only in military time. I'd like to see a chart with a line graph of the barometric pressure with the days of the week. Otherwise you have to move the line and read try to read the small font. Paid for the upgrade which I thought would have more features and info. The upgrade isn't worth it. Getting a pretty display option isn't worth the $1.99
Accaute and great UI 5/5
Accurate with easy to use UI. I compared with NOAAs 3 day history and it was on point to 1 mb. This app is also lets you at look air pressure over time in different views: 12 hrs, 24 hrs, 3 days etc. I track my correlated air pressure and pain over time and this app is great for that!
Best barometer ever 5/5
By Am Bt
Excellent app, clean design, and no ads! 5/5
By Andy Baird
I'm extremely impressed with the job developer Steffen Bauereiss did on this app. It works flawlessly on my iPhone 7 Plus. The design is clean, uncluttered and easy to understand. All the functions one could wish for are there, even in the free version--which unlike most free utilities, has no annoying ads. After spending ten minutes playing with this, I paid for the "Pro" version, not so much because I needed more features as because this developer deserves to be rewarded for a job well done. Herrlich!
It could be better 3/5
Graphics aren't real good. I wish it gave the location for the barometer readings. What station is it getting its reading from? Barometric pressure at sea level? Where? New York? Cairo?
Barometer works really well on my iPhone 6 5/5
It's really well done. It's accurate, easy to use and simply works. I like the history feature as knowing if the pressure is rising or falling gives a much more accurate weather prediction. It's free and works better than most paid barometer apps. Give it a try I know you'll like it.
Works well. People leaving 1 star are misinformed. 5/5
The people complaining about "no sensors" are misinformed. Generally, we're talking about dummies who don't realize that not all iPhones or iPads have a barometric pressure sensor. You need an iPhone 6 or higher, iPad Air 2, or mini 4. iPhone SE won't work as it's based off the iPhone 5.
No Ads! 5/5
That is my absolute favorite thing about this app. Along with the fact that it works wonderfully with my iPhone 7. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a simple app to tell the barometric pressure and altitude … WITHOUT ads.
Works for me! 4/5
By sleazy rider
It took me a while to get the hang of this app, mostly because I did not quite understand how the pressure can vary over the course of an hour, and that it takes a few minutes for the iPhone GPS to lock in the reference altitude. Now that I have a down, it's a breeze. I can actually see one foot variations in altitude.
Needs improvement 1/5
The pressure trend records radical u realistic jumps or drops in pressure in it's tome series recording nearly every day. There's almost no data quality control measures taken and this needs improvement before I could even think of spending money on this app.
iPad issues 1/5
By Disgruntled Lancastrian
The iPad upgrade took it to 10.2. Description of the app requires 10.1 or higher-but the app still says no sensor available.
Absolutely fantastic app. Well-done. Nice gauge look as well as a chart option for showing trends.
Needs work still 1/5
Gauges do not work.
Ref pressure and altitude no longer work 4/5
Sorry about that last post. My mistake... the adjustment has to be done on the Settings page.
Needs Apple Watch support 3/5
Needs Apple Watch support
Yay! - working again. 5/5
Loved this app until the iOS upgrade now says I don't have a pressure sensor anymore. UPDATE: The latest iOS update and it's working again... yay!
Pro version 1/5
Just purchased the pro version however the secondary scale does not work. I purchased the pro version specifically for this function. Running iPhone 7 with latest software. Help!
Simple and great 5/5
I love this app! I only wish I found out about it sooner! It's fast and simple without any ads!
IS WORKING NOW! 5/5
10.1 Beta and this barometer is back working on my iPad Air 2!!
Still working on 10.1 update, iPad Air 2
Now works in iOS 10.1! 5/5
I had been using this successfully for weeks but now after the iOS 10 update it says that I don't have pressure sensor. UPDATE: It now works again on my iPad Air 2 with iOS 10.1.
IT WORKS! 5/5
Just down loaded the latest update and now the app works fine, good news for a great app!
Latest IOS update fixes problem 5/5
This is one of my favorite apps. I have a vestibular disease and it gives me "early warning". Updated my ipad today and it works again.
It's working again 5/5
After the 10.1 update the barometer is functional again!
FIX IT! 1/5
Developer: Are you working with Apple to resolve this? Apple is on the second iOS 10 update. Are you making noise? I used this app frequently, until it broke (and I don't care who's at fault).
Not Apps Fault 4/5
Having same problem as other reviewers with app stating my device (latest iPad) does not have a pressure sensor. Downloaded other barometer apps and they produce the same pop-up, so likely not a problem with this app.
Really liked the app before making the mistake up updating ios. Amazingly, no one is talking about this on the internet. Only reference out their is tied to these reviews.
Apple, please fix! (Again, not the Barometer apps fault.)
Trend plot 3/5
The trend plot is now erratic since upgrade to iOS 10.0.2 on iPhone 6 plus. The realtime altimeter and pressure readings seem to be ok however.
Does not work! 1/5
Does not work with iOS 10.02. Worked well until the last update.
Quit Working 1/5
With ISO 10 this app no longer works on my iPad Pro, it has a pop-up that says it can't connect to the sensor.
Finally a barometer app that is genuinely useful (for weather). Uses GPS to correct for one's height above sea level. A mark is used as a reference point, just like an analog barometer. Just well thought through and elegant. Well done.
Stopped working 1/5
Can this be fixed? I updated to ios10. I didn't get rid of the barometer!
Great til it broke 3/5
I use this app a lot, but them recently it quit working. I believe this had something to do with the OS; now at 9.3.5 iPhone 6s
My beef with the app is there is no app internal contact feature that lets one write the developers.
Great app! But it stopped working. 4/5
I have used this app for a while. It has been interesting to try and use it to predict wether and track patterns. However, i just got iOS 10 and the app now won't work it says that I need to have an IPad Air 2, mini 4, or iPad Pro that has a barometer. Well I have an IPad Air 2 this app has always worked but now it won't.. Even though my machine has the right hardware for it. Great app, just would like it to work again.
Great but please update for OS10 3/5
Love the app, but doesn't work with OS10. I'm sure you will fix it soon. Thank you! I use it daily or I wouldn't bother. Five stars when its fixed for 10
No longer works with iOS10 on iPad Air2. Please get this fixed. This is one of my favorite apps and will rate it 5 stars when it works again on my iPad air 2. Thanks
iPad Pro broken 1/5
Says the iPad Pro doesn't have a barometer - broken
Used to work but ... 1/5
I upgraded to iOS 10 and now it no longer recognizes that this is an iPad Air 2. When it was working it was great for tracking headaches and chronic pain. Now I'm worried my phone won't work either with the new iOS.
No thanks 2/5
I downloaded two different barometer apps to compare, both free. The other one let me change the appearance - color, etc. - with no problem. This one wanted to charge me $1.99 for any face beyond the default one. I deleted it and went with the other one.
Migraine tracker!!! 5/5
Absolutely love this app!! As a chronic migraine sufferer it's so good to be able to track the barometric pressure and see when my migraines are getting ready to spike (or at least the possibility of one) and take proactive action instead of watching the clouds...
Fantastic Tool to Track Pain and Pressure 5/5
Free. Accurate. Attractive. Simple and Useful. Thank You so Much for This!
Superb Barometer/Altimeter and Graphic Trend Data Display 5/5
I live about 3 miles from a small municipal airport where a US Weather Bureau station is located and reports weather conditions hourly. The altitude at the weather station and my residence are nearly the same. Not surprisingly the sea level barometric pressure readings at the weather station and on my iPhone 6 are consistently in agreement. I can't ask for any better confirmation than that. The altimeter is dead on when I update the "station barometric pressure" to the current reading displayed on my iPhone 6 Apt. The linear trend graph is very readable and adjustable to the desired time span. Overall the Apt is very professional in function and appearance. Keep in mind that this apt will not give accurate readings when one is in artificially controlled environments like airplanes, air conditioned buildings and autos and extreme temperatures situations.
The barometric data on my Casio Pro Trek PRW-3100-1 wrist watch exactly matches that produced on my iPhone 6 Apt. when readings are taken at exactly the same time and location. Further confirmation as to its accuracy. The altimeter on the iPhone 6 Apt is GPS generated and reasonably accurate wherever you go. The Casio altimeter is solely dependent on barometric pressure and an accurate starting point altitude value that requires periodic updating to maintain accuracy. Definitely an apt that every weather bug should have on his iPhone 6.
app freezes up when you try to change any of the settings. especially when it try's to get you to upgrade to the pro edition.
Corrected from earlier today 4/5
I live in Colorado Springs. The altitude is about 6400 ft. The app doesn't display the air pressure on the gauge because the scale doesn't go low enough. But it does display the pressure as a number on the face of the gauge and in the table below the gauge.
