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.
- Improved compatibility with iOS14
Ratings and Reviews
Great for Scientific Documentation
Taking a picture with My Altitude records the exact coordinates, time, altitude and even the weather! Very helpful for quickly making a record that can be saved, printed and referred back to for completing verifiable documentation.
Also fun for traveling and just whenever I am curious about My Altitude!
Thank you for creating this accurate and reliable app and for providing it at absolutely no cost.
Barometric Pressure Not Adjusted For Height Above Sea Level
For anyone that is trying to use this application for accurate weather forecasting via use of barometer, the application is not calibrating based on height above sea level. This is critical for anyone taking part in outdoor activity where you want to check the current barometric pressure against a weather GRIB forecast predicted barometric pressure.
By comparing the current pressure against forecast pressure you can validate if the weather is coming in faster, slower, or as expected ... super important if you're taking part in an activity where you’re at risk due to heavy weather
The mean height above sea level feature does work well, and I validated height accuracy with other applications and station data, so I’ll keep the application for this data set to calibrate my barometer in another app. But the barometric pressure in this app is off by over 10mb for my location which makes the barometer in this application useless for practical purposes. I can confirm the reading given is sea level barometric pressure.
Highly recommend the Starparh Marine Barometer for accurate barometric pressure readings to those whose wellbeing is correlated to what the weather is doing. Just plug in the height above sea level value and the application will calibrate barometric pressure for you.
Simple and useful
I live in Colorado and roadtrip around the region often so this is great for keeping an eye on elevation changes.
I would give it 5 stars if this app supported the new iOS 14-style Widgets. I’d love to be able to stack it with other widgets so that I can hide it without deleting the widget when I am home and my elevation isn’t changing.
I’d also be cool if it had CarPlay support but I understand why that might more work that it is worth, considering Apple and Google Maps could easily make the feature obsolete by including the Altitude on their Navigation screens.
