*** iPhone 6 or newer iOS device with a barometer only! Not compatible with iPhone SE! ***
Use the iPhone 6 and newer's ultra-sensitive barometer to calculate your altitude. Will find your nearest airport or allow you to enter your local airport's IATA code to calibrate! Perfect for VFR pilots as a secondary altimeter!
**Currently only supports airports in the United States as well as typical USA units (pressure in inHg, altitude in feet)**
* Uses new caching API
* Shows an error if you install on a device without a barometer
Ratings and Reviews
Simple, clean app
Gets the job done
Altimeter setting is always wrong
This app works, but the altimeter setting is rarely correct which makes the altitude information incorrect. Checking the current METAR for the closest airport often shows altimeter settings vastly different than what the app claims, even if you repeatedly refresh. The data it uses is hours old at newest, and it will not let you manually input the altimeter setting of the closest airport. Don’t get this app until it’s fixed!
Amazing and simple app!
As a new pilot and someone who grew up in the mountains, altitude is a huge interest of mine. Therefore I was extremely excited when Apple announced a barometric sensor in their new iPhone 6. Ever since I got the new phone I have been looking for an app to tell me my current altitude, not just a difference in altitude. This app does just that by using current Metar data from an airport of your choice (choose closest airport for accurate altitude). This app is simple and is brilliant! Definitely worth the $1! My only recommendation is to have a automatic airport selection based on your current location. 5 stars!!!
