Dark Sky Meter
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
As seen on BBC, CBS, Scientific American and more!
The Dark Sky Meter measures the artificial sky brightness in two simple steps. Just cover the camera and aim to the point right above your head. The output is the same as a commercial Sky Quality Meter... But at a fraction of the price! The app can submit your measurements to the Globe at Night project and the International Dark Skies association.
The $0.99 is spent on server hosting and no profit is being made. Each download helps preventing light pollution by giving researchers insight and help authorities provide better lighting.
Please give the camera access to the app! It can be done using settings-->privacy--> camera.
But there is more:
- Real Time Map view: view your recent dark Sky Measurements and those of others nearby or world wide!
- Cloud prediction clock. Shows cloudyness for the next 4 days.
What's New in Version 2.8
- fixes a connectivity issue with the back end on some phone models
- experimental iPhone 7 plus support
- clear skies to you all
Worst app ever
The app seems to be designed for iPhone 1
The camera area displayed on screen is just 1 x 1 pixel dimension, developer of this app, haven't you heard about AutoLayout?
The operations that go to networks don't seem to work. Are you using http only traffic? That doesn't work anymore in latest iOS versions.
I cannot even switch the camera to decide if I want to use front or back camera. It would be so much easier to use the front camera, face the phone flat to the surface and follow the instructions.
