Barometer for iPhone & iPod Touch
By Gaetan Juvin
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Wherever you are, your iPhone gives you the local pressure!
iBarometer is the reference implementation of barometers, it is pretty simple, accurate,and efficient.
It will be your best every day to tell you directly on your iPhone (iPod Touch with GPS) the pressure where you stand:
- The application also provides weather reports of high accuracy.
- Functional for more than 2 million cities worldwide. Forecasts are available 7 / 7 and updated on average every 3 hours.
- It integrates its own conversion system hectopascal in inches.
- It provides information such as humidity and temperature outside.
- The operating is very simple, the application will automatically locate you via GPS and give you the local pressure.
A handy application at an affordable price, why not try it?
Exclusive: Available in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Dutch.
(To access all the functionalities of the station your iPhone must be connected to the internet (Edge, 3G or Wifi) and have a GPS (which is native to the iPhone)).
What's New in Version 1.3
- upgrade GPS location
Great idea, would love to see new features
I agree with the ratings, this is a good app, and it is styled in a really easy to follow format. This is also the most helpful app in terms of accurate barometric pressure readings. In future updates, I would recommend the option of charting past pressure readings within the last few days, as other reviewers have commented. I keep notes of the readings myself, but I have trouble monitoring it consistently. I say this because I would like to be able to accurately observe trends or swings in weather patterns over the last 48 hours if possible. Also, a location reading would be really helpful, too. Maybe just an updated city/state so I can know my readings are adjusting to my location appropriately? The GPS signal is always lit, but it would be nice to see readings update for your location.
It is strange that most weather apps don't include barometric pressure, but this app isn't expensive and works. I believe the factor affects how we feel as much as temp, humidity and pollen. I think pressure is connected to headaches, for instance. One suggestion I'd like to see added is *change* in barometer reading. It may be the change that's as important as the actual pressure at a given time. A badge indicating sudden changes on the app's icon would be ideal.
I'm a medical physicist who requires barometric pressure readings for calibrating radiation therapy machines. Using this ap gives me corrected pressure, however with an elevation ap and table of corrections of pressure with elevation, have found it to be accurate to within 1 mm of mercury pressure readings when compared to "calibrated" barometer
