Ratings and Reviews
Outstanding app during CA fires, but bugs
Until the latest iOS update, this app worked flawlessly. Occasionally reporting stations failed to appear, but appeared later after connections seem to have been restored.
since the latest iOS update, when I have attempted to check on our air quality caused by the Camp Fire, I receive a massively expanded image of the app icon with no way to access the air quality reports. The only solution has been to delete the app and reinstall. I wonder if it is failing when I close the app while still in one of the reporting regions. Don’t know why this would be a problem, but I will back up to the 4 region start page every time I close the app from now on. Hope that is a workaround until the app is fixed.
OK for an app from 2010... maybe, like if you closed your eyes.
Just downloaded this even though my spouse said it was a waste of time. She was right. Have to drill down to your area. Then, no maps, no animation and not even a chart for newbies to see what the number reflects. And, no way to see all the areas n one spot. If I have to travel, I don’t want to click through all the areas. BTW, kudos on your website! Everything you need all on this be page. You’re better off putting up an app that simply references the data on your website. Ask your app developer about that. It’s cheap to do and there’s plenty of space to display the data, even on a smaller form factor phone. I’m responsible for 20+ application developers, and if any of them produced this, we’d have a long conversation in my office with the doors closed. Deleting...
Basic is good but too simple can leave much to be desired. I would recommend adding a setting for home location so when you open the app AQI and other info about your home location appears first. Favorites and a widget would also be nice. I would like to see this modeled similarly to most weather apps.
