Great App 5/5
By marmota monax
Accurate and simple to use. Great addition for those who enjoy tracking weather.
Great app but it would be better if there was a notification feature such as when the pressure changes rapidly over a set period of time.
Simple and perfect 5/5
As simple as the old barometer on my wall and couldn’t be better!
No clutter, no extraneous useless clutter.
The ‘set’ feature is great to set a baseline. The “trend function” for tracking provides insight for recent and current conditions vs forecast.
Many an old salt would tap the barometer and give a forecast to any who’d listen. It was simple science, not some old magic.
Meaningless trend line 3/5
As others have mentioned, this app needs to track changes and should run in the background. Perhaps turn on and take a reading every hour? Otherwise the trend line is nearly impossible to interpret.
Excellent App. 5/5
Easy to read, easy to adjust. Have tried several barometer apps. This is ‘the keeper ‘!
Predicts my weather-related headaches 5/5
I love this app! I have pressure-related headaches, and I am finally able to predict my bad days accurately using the “trend” graph feature. The face is clean and clear and easy to read for this 63-year-old with zero science background. Thanks for a great app!
Best Barometer 5/5
As a fly fisherman who camps in mountainous isolated areas, I cannot see the horizon between canyon or mountain faces. The barometer is among the tools that warns of approaching weather. The addition of an alarm feature for the Apple Watch version would make this app perfect. Giving it a 5-star cuz it is the best of the bunch and has been for a while.
Love the trend function on this app which I use to determine when is the best times to fish. I would like the trend diagram to offer vertical line indications for the midnight of each day as well as horizontal lines that can be set to mark specific barometric ranges. The best range for fishing is when the barometer trend steeply falls from below 30.9 to above 29.9. Highlighted range indicator lines would make this easier to determine at a quick glance.
Idea: make pressure reading a complication feature for Watch 5/5
Love the app. Curious if there are plans to make the current pressure reading with a trend arrow as a complication displayable on the watch face.
I rarely go into the app on my watch because I’d rather use the app on the phone. I would love everytime I raise my wrist to see the time I also can see the current pressure reading (minimum ASAP) and even a trend arrow (dream function). This would make the watch essentially on par with a suunto or garmin in terms of weather forecasting in the field for me at least.
Now if a trend map does become possible down the road for the watch, I’d go pro and pay some money!
Graph works again 5/5
With this latest upgrade the gravel on my iPhone X seems to work again. I’ve updated my rating accordingly from One stop back to five. P.S. How do I get the new WOS app on my watch?
Using the iPhone X and when you go to settings and try to change the face of the display for the app it freezes and you have to shut down the app and restart it. The feedback page is an image and not a clickable email address so I post it here to make it easier
Nice barometer app 5/5
Nicely displays the output of the (impressive) built-in barometric pressure sensor that easily registers the pressure difference going up one flight of stairs.
Most useful, in my opinion, is the trend-line plot. One request is to include the time scale for the bottom axis to facilitate comparisons vs. time, which is available to the app.
Please display the pressure also in the units of the second scale (Pro version), below the dial (numerically) on the main screen. While I’m all for hPa and mBar, pressure is typically in inHg in the US and that would help with regional differences.
One of these days, Apple will also make the temperature available (already in the sensor) to app creators and it would be great to have a trend line with both plotted, with due care in interpretation because it’ll be the temperature of the sensor in the iPhone and not of its environment. 🙂
Best Barometer App 5/5
I’ve tries all the other barometric apps. This one is easily the best and best-featured. The Trend graph is excellent and extremely useful, as is the ability to export data to a CSV file. The tech support is impressive and responsive.
The 30-day Trend data can be imported into Numbers or some other spreadsheet for more analysis or graphing. Being able to finely control the marker is great, and having it show on the Trend graph, too.
I’ve been doing a study on Meniere’s Syndrome and how air pressure affects symptoms. This App has been extremely useful in collecting, graphing, corroborating data, and understanding when and why the symptoms appear.
Good utility but needs improvement 3/5
It’s a great app I love the idea and interface of it, but there is a big glitch
The app seems to be tracking the barometric pressure only when it is open, the graph is pretty inaccurate if you have not used the app for past 3 days or so.
Only updates graph when open 3/5
I like the app but the graph only updates when I open it. This creates a very choppy and inaccurate graph of the barometric pressure history. If I don't open the app for a few days the graph just draws a straight line between what the pressure was the last time I opened it and the current value. All the data in between is missing. The graph needs to read and record the pressure at some fixed or user defined I web all. That would make it a 5 star app.
Finally a recording barometer.
I’ve had the app for a week. I’ve only used the barometer part, but I really like it.
If you have a few aches and pains, you can quickly check to see if the barometric pressure is falling.
Accurate barometer 5/5
I sail boats alone across oceans and pay close attention to barometers. I have two on my present boat, but neither is as accurate as the readings I am getting from this app on my iPhone 7+. Comparing those readings frequently with current readings online, I have never seen variation of more than .5 of a millibar.
I would very much like the app to work on my Apple Watch, too.
Help for those at altitude 3/5
I am also at altitude (like other reviewers) - I have no idea how to set this so it’s accurate for this altitude and the app offers no help. Great app for tracking but a few easy how-tos would give it a 5 star for me. Hope to see an update soon! :) if it helps I’m out of Denver, CO
Works Fine in iOS 11.0.x 5/5
Just a brief update. I apologize for not revising sooner.
Works fine in iOS 11.0.1
From iOS 10.x.x - 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.
Good App + recommendation 4/5
By The Heaberlins
Functions as advertised, nothing to complain about. One suggestion tho -make basic weather prediction based off of barometric erasure trends. This would be good to have as a widget...
Altimeter is broken with negative readings 4/5
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...
Wish I could give 0 star rating 1/5
Barometer stuck on 29.6 for weeks after updating, deleting, and reinstalling
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!
