My Altitude uses GPS signals to determine your current location, altitude (height from sea level) barometric pressure and water boiling point.
This application does not need an internet connection and works best in outdoors.
By default, it uses device sensor to determine the altitude, but you also have the option to use NOAA data files to get the altitude of your location. On newer devices, using device sensor is more accurate.
It also allows you to get a picture of where you are and save it in photo album. Picture will be sealed with coordinates of current location along with altitude and local date/time.
Barometric Pressure is calculated based on elevation. On newer devices such as iPhone 6/6+ value is being delivered directly from device built-in barometric sensor.
- Fixed a few minor bugs and improved compatibility with iOS 12
- Added an option to change background color of the app
Ratings and Reviews
Unfortunately My Altimeter fails to show ALTITUDE if “Location” is turned OFF in the paired iPhone, something one would commonly do to limit battery drain. I had expected My Altimeter to automatically switch from altituude imputed from GOS to the Watch’s built-in miniature barometer but apparently it does not. Then getting everything reset requires an off-on Watch reboot. Exasperating! Hopefully a revision will improve this serious flaw.
App on top always on watch - revised
I like the new capability on the watch, but the app is always on top. I don’t want it on top all the time. When I lift my wrist I want to see my watch face, not the altitude every time.
Kudos. They fixed the foreground bug. Now it is a great useful app.
Quick, simple altitude info
Doing lots of hikes and treks, especially in remote areas without detailed maps, it’s been very handy to pull this guy up and immediately know the altitude. Such a simple and clever design, it truly brings me joy every time I use it.
