Did my research, get it
I have lived in China for 3 years and have a two-year old boy. Once he was born I became more interested in what all the AQI apps actually did and started researching them. AirVisual is by far the best one I have come across (having used 10+ different apps). Not only can you choose to use the US index (which I would highly recommend) you also can see which pollutants are contaminating the atmosphere at any given time. I also have a laser egg (also highly recommended) which is a portable particulate counter and the readings on my mobile device and the closest monitoring station on the app are always within +/-20 meaning they are not contradicting each other. On other apps there would often times be a 50 point+ difference between what my particulate counter read and the other random apps I was using. Also, do note that some apps do, like airvisual, have the different pollutants listed and their levels but airvisual is the only app I have found that combines that with the ability to choose the US AQI standard. My go-to app when it comes to air pollution.
All the info you need
As a recent expat I wanted to try to make things as healthy as possible for my family. Air quality can be effectively controlled in your home but only if you know what you're dealing with. AirVisual lets you see what the outside air is and gives forecasts that I've found to be mostly accurate. When paired with an AirVisual node you can monitor your inside air quality as well and tailor your filtration plan accordingly.
My only gripe is that you only get reports on outside air at 2 hour intervals while some other apps offer up to the minute results.
More sure now
After checking multiple sources and comparing readings, the ones on this app have been consistently wrong.
I finally noticed that the readings are not updated hourly like most, I have 3 cities listed, one reading was two hours and ten minutes since last reading and the other two were 14 hours behind. I like the app itself so I still give it 3 stars, I hope they can get the hourly updates and match the other source readings
