This app uses the barometric pressure sensor built into all the newer iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch Models sold after 2016 with few exceptions. You need one of these newer devices to use this App. See below which older iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch without this sensor are not supported!
This App features a Barometer for weather, an Altimeter for outdoor activities, a barometric Trend and a Notification Center Widget.
Even without the optional In-App-Purchase this is a fully functional Barometer with absolutely no draw-backs and all important features accessible. Always without ads! (See "Pro Features" at the end). No internet connection required, no data transmitted - runs on your device only!
Keep an eye on the barometric pressure and be your own weather forecast! This little app uses only GPS (optional) and the new barometric pressure sensor to calculate the barometric pressure used in weather forecasts. The new iPhones have a barometric pressure sensor built in so this app works completely without internet. The handy marker helps you keep track of changes in the barometric pressure and let's you predict weather changes! Please realize, that a single barometric pressure reading is not enough to tell the current weather situation but the barometric pressure and its change over time is a very good indicator for weather changes!
Now you can also see the trend in barometric pressure with graph charts displaying the measurements taken during the last 30 days! (6h, 12h, 24h, 3d, 7d, 14d, 30d)
The Altimeter helps you track your altitude changes based on the change of pressure. Just set your reference pressure and altitude in order to use the Altimeter for checking how high up the mountain you have climbed (works for other activities too). The App does not use GPS for the Altimeter.
Please Note that on older devices such as the 4S, 5, 5S and 5C as well as on any iPod Touch and iPad Models older than iPad Air 2 or iPad Mini 4 as well as the Apple Watch 1 and 2, this app will not be able to read barometric pressure values and not display any useful information. The first generation 4-inch iPhone SE is not supported - the new SE (2020) is!
All basic features, the Barometer, the Altimeter, the Trend and the Widget are completely free to use for everyone and are fully functional at maximum accuracy available. No ads!
The only features with restricted access via In-App-Purchase are listed at the end under "Pro Features". Those are nice to have features for power users or those that want to show their support for the App!

Ratings and Reviews
Still won’t log consistent data points
I have been complaining about this for a year or so. On my iPad, I must be opening the app often, or as someone else said, I just see a straight line.
It’s better on the iPhoneSE2020, but still a problem. Once in a while, I think it is fixed. I see lots of data points and a nice curve, but every time, it reverts back to the boxy lines within days. :(
I don’t need to know either station pressure or sea level pressure right now. What I need are trends! And you can’t get accurate trends without enough data points, pure and simple.
Is it better than nothing? Definitely. Could it be better? It sure seems so, because once in a while it is better! I am no programmer or app developer, but why does it become “fixed” now and then, only to revert back???
I am sticking with my 4-star rating because it still works, just not as well as I think it could/should. And I don’t know of anything better, which says something!
Your joints-every single one of them is it’s own separate capsule- meaning it has its own pressure. I have patients who say they can tell when it’s going to rain or get cold. No, they can tell when the pressure’s dropping- which is almost always accompanied by some type of weather change, rain, cold or otherwise-and your joints internal pressure is “feeling” the External pressure change. High pressure is typically fair weather, a dropping barometer means change is coming-soon.
Your astute assessment regarding your joints is correct-if someone tells you it’s a myth-they’re referring to your ability to discern rainy/cold weather-which is only partly true-I’m getting redundant. Most things in nature are in tune with the barometer- I notice I get hungry when the barometer drops-as does most of the animal kingdom, the fishing is typically better during a falling barometer. Alas, I’m a novice myself at setting the barometer-sorry I couldn’t be of more help there.
Need help !
So far this APP works great, has never crashed, and give me what I THINK I need. I say, "what I think", because I am a novice. I really don't understand "Station Pressure/Altitude", nor how to set it and why. I know that this is just my ignorance, but it sure would be nice to get some help/essay explanation, etc. so that not only could I set it properly, but more importantly understand what I am looking at! Call me ignorant ... thats ok ... I am! 😆. But, the way you get more, NEW users of an APP, is to help those of us that have an interest in understanding pressure and altitude ... what their interrelationship is and how to get accurate readings !
All I know right now, is that my joints start hurting when the pressure drops! It's "accurate" for me to take one more ibuprofen when that is about to (or even already) has dropped. Please help educate me to set this properly for my statistic elevation here in Rio Rancho, NM (5282')
