The Melbourne Pollen Count App provides real-world pollen count data during the Melbourne grass pollen season (October 1 to December 31) from 6 pollen counting stations from around Victoria that are run by the School of BioSciences at the University of Melbourne, Australia.

The Melbourne Pollen App also provides a year-round 7-day forecast of grass pollen levels for Melbourne and a next day forecast for Victorian country areas. We now provide a forecast for potential thunderstorm asthma events and advise users of predicted high pollen days and thunderstorm asthma using push notifications.

Our users can also help us with our research by telling us how they are feeling via our hay fever symptom survey. Information collected by the survey helps us better understand the relationship between our pollen count and how pollen is affecting the community.

Hey fever is cruel 20/10 for this app

I’d love to thank you for your app, I’m 47 years old girl from the south east of Melbourne and have had hey fever all my life, this app helps me everyday in hey fever season, I now know in advance what’s coming, I’m allergic to all Australian pollens, dust and dirt, I get hives, itchy eyes which makes me rub them hard and have permanent dark eyes cause I have bruised them over my life time.
I hate hey fever it’s cruel.
Thanks so much again, 20/10 for this app
Thanks regard Tracey H 😊

forewarned is forearmed

I love this app, it has really been super useful. The thunderstorm asthma warnings are great. The app provides me with peace of mind. Great work!

Can you make a setting that allows users to opt in to receive a daily reminder to complete the survey? Perhaps an option to enter previous days? I would complete the survey every day if only I remembered!

It’s a great app.

I really like this app and it is easy to see what the pollen grass count is for the day. If only it didn’t glitch when I open it, it closes up again and I don’t know why. It took me a few goes and about 30 minutes of trying to see what today’s count was. If that gets fixed I would appreciate it as I find I am using the app every day throughout the day.
Thank you for making the app.
