Awesome app! A must have if you care about your health and city.

Great app one of a kind. Air quality monitoring app in a class of its own

Awesome useful application. And easy to use also.

It helps a lot to know when pollution is high. I always have medical breathing issues that I need to be careful of. Thanks for the help!

Top Notch App! This is really a great app if you or a loved one has respiratory issues or you are just interested in tracking air pollution. There are many features and a lot of ways to look at various pollutants in many major international population areas. I love the various history graphs showing short, medium, and long range views.


HuffingtonPost: "Beat the pollution with the Plume Air app."

Evening Standard: "This pollution app tells you when it's 'safest' to go outside."

TechCrunch: "A pragmatic approach to air pollution. Strikes the right balance between providing insightful information about air pollution and not being too complicated."

VentureBeat: "With its air pollution app, Plume Labs wants to prove that big data and open government can save lives."

Everyone should be using this APP

I've been using Plume for almost a year and have introduced it to many people who were not aware of how important it is to monitor AQI especially when you have young children. My children also use this App on their own now.
I love the new improvements and the ease of use. As an outdoor athlete it has helped me tremendously in managing the quality and amount of time I spend outside over the last year which in turn has impacted my health and the health of my family. I highly recommend.

Look no further!

This app does what is says and quite well.

I’ve used it in Chinese, Japanese and English and the functionality was consistent across all three languages.

The limitations I could see were;

(1) there was no way to modify the city list; you have to first delete the cities and re-enter them in the order you prefer.

(2) when you delete a city, the last city in your list is “promoted” to top of the list. That makes it even harder to re-sequence your list...


(3) there is no way to select which city appears in the widget, so if you want to see your city at a glance (in the widget) it has to be at the top of your cities. Otherwise you have to fiddle around with the list, back to (1) and (2).

Finally (4), there is no way to add air quality tracking stations that may not otherwise be listed in the city list.

Truth be said, these are really minor points that don’t take away from the functionality and useful information, at all.

Great app. Recommend it if you’re tracking air quality in your area.

So far so good!

Just learned about this and got it on the basis of the reviews. I intend to go with the Flow as well. I cannot judge the accuracy but it seems to offer so much more than the apps I had been using, and I am very susceptible to pollution-related health issues. I do have the luxury of choosing where I get my exercise and I expect this to help me decide where to spend time. If it helps me I will also be sharing information about this product with elderly neighbors as respiratory issues loom large in this part of the world.
