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.
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.
What about West Sacramento
App has all the surrounding cities including natomas (which is an area, not a city) but doesn’t have West Sacramento. The numbers vary from Davis to Natomas to Sacramento.
Other than that, app is great.
