Did you know that you may be smoking up to 20 cigarettes per day, just for living in a big city?
Quite scary, right? “Sh**t! I Smoke” was what we said when we first saw this article about the equivalence between air pollution and cigarette smoking. We were smoking between up to 8 cigarettes everyday without even touching one!
So we created this quick application for you to know how many cigarettes you are smoking in your city. You can share the number and help raise awareness about the risks of air pollution.
- Corrected conversion bug to cigarettes, now using PM2.5 concentration level instead of AQI.
- Added a screen to show more information about the Air Quality Station.
- Decided to be more transparent, and explicitly add a warning message when the station is too far.
- Implemented some design improvements.
Ratings and Reviews
I have downloaded and used all the air quality apps in the Apple store. This is one of my top 2 favorites because the data is updated frequently and the information is easy to understand. Also you can drill down to really detailed data if you want, and the transparency helps you decide for yourself whether the numbers are legit. All in all, 5 stars. Keep up the good work.
Really solid app. Can’t be sure how accurate the conversion is, but seems reliable.
Why can’t I just enter my location?
I downloaded this app while in Kathmandu. The app repeatedly failed to find my location. I ended up searching the internet and finding an article that told me that the air quality was equivalent to smoking 10 cigarettes a day. The app never worked. I tried the app again once I returned home to Colorado. It pegged my “location” as a town 130 miles from here on the other side of a monstrous mountain range and much closer to an industrial city. So I guess I’ll search the internet again for the information I thought this app was designed to provide.
Developer Response ,
I'm very sorry to hear your experience. The GPS was indeed not working in the 1st version, but we fixed this bug in our latest version (v1.1.2).
