Ratings and Reviews

Very basic

I need a good one.

Basic is good but too simple can leave much to be desired. I would recommend adding a setting for home location so when you open the app AQI and other info about your home location appears first. Favorites and a widget would also be nice. I would like to see this modeled similarly to most weather apps.

I open the app, and I only see a white screen.

Easy and straightforward


Really easy app to use and straightforward: you pick your region and the closest monitoring station to see the current air quality status, today's forecast, and tomorrow's forecast.

Con: it would be nice to be able to set a monitoring station so that you don't have to go through picking your region and closest monitoring station every time. But I doubt the Air Quality board has tons of money to spend on the nuances of app development and it's not a big deal.

This app does what it needs to do. Never again will I accidentally go for an hour long run outside on a Spare the Air day!
