Own Your Seasonal Allergies with the Pollen Wise App. Using a robust network of sensors around the country, Pollen Wise Provides up-to-date pollen counts to help users mitigate allergens and avoid seasonal allergy symptoms. Now with an Act on Solutions tab designed to help you manage your allergy symptoms through educational articles that will help you raise your allergy IQ.
If you have asthma, hay fever or seasonal allergies, knowing what is in TODAY's air is more valuable than knowing what was in YESTERDAY's air. Unlike your current pollen report or app, Pollen Wise connects you with timely information from new pollen sensors. They create reports every few minutes for an hourly average. For the first time, this kind of information helps you make decisions about your exposure to pollen.
Ever-changing levels of pollen can make it difficult to know when you should go outside or when it's better to stay inside. For example, levels can spike on one day at 11 am, drop at 2 pm, then begin climbing again until 8 pm. On the following day those levels could be reversed, but you'd never know without the kind of details that Pollen Wise can provide you because your source for pollen information is based on predictions and yesterday's counts.
If you have better information, it only makes sense to use it. Pollen Wise: What's in your air, when and where...
Bugfixes Galore! All allergen data in Pollen Wise is provided by our network of sensors. We recently made a few adjustments to how our network of sensors report their data which unfortunately negatively impacted the Pollen Wise experience. This update provides bug fixes to address those data reporting changes.
Ratings and Reviews
Update to my update:
My local sensor is back!! Woohoo!
Current 4PM readings (%):
• Sensor 1 mile away = 23 Tree, 21 Grass, 11 Mold
• Sensor 20 miles north = 64 Tree, 21 Grass, 11 Mold
• Sensor 20 miles south = 65 Tree, 21 Grass, 44 Mold
It really does make a difference in an area like mine that has microclimates (lots of variation in elevation and coastal/inland changes).
When I originally started using the app, I was 1 mile away from a sensor. For whatever reason, that sensor stopped yesterday and now I’m 20 miles away.
Living in an area of microclimates makes this app less useful now where I live. Data from 20 miles away can’t help me, no matter how well it’s presented.
I researched this and couldn’t find another app this granular—every HOUR I can see the tree, grass, mold, and weed pollen/spores.
I can finally predict allergy symptoms AND explain to others by showing them actual supporting data! Thank you!
Now in the latest update, it shows a percentage (I assume that is the same type of percentage as they mention in the in-app notes). This app was beyond compare before, but now it just blows the others away!
The only other app that compares in functionality doesn’t have or use enough sensors. But PollenWise has a sensor 1 mile from my house! Perfect!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the comments. We haven't decommissioned any devices, so the sensor should come back online soon. While it is great to have a device a mile away, studies show that the other device will be extremely useful too.
The DEFINITIVE app for allergies
This app is so detailed it even tells me when Aspergillus mold specifically is high so I can be careful. Absolutely no other app or website is this detailed. Every since I got diagnosed with asthma this app has become part of my daily routine. I’m not one to write reviews often, but I just exchanged emails with one of the developers and the customer service is so great, I was compelled to write one. Get this app now, you will love it!
Nice looking app but no idea how local the info actually is.
1st, nice looking app -clean, moderately intuitive, easy to narrow in on my specific allergens.
2nd, I like the idea of having actual local pollen counters for real-time data. I’m in MA, nothing near me, per your list of sensored areas. $8200 is kinda steep for me to think about getting one of those devices own my own, to have a sensor in my region.
3rd, If the cost of putting a device in the area for no cost to end users, and people won’t shell out that kind of money, maybe a subscription model with enough users to pay for a sensor nearby could be an answer. I’d be willing to subscribe to something if it were truly local to me.
4th, if not enough subscribers, I’d thing local communities (cities/towns/etc) might be approachable, getting one as a service to its citizens.
5th, your site mentions leasing a station, but there’s apparently no information to support that statement.
Thanks for listening
