Whether you have respiratory issues or are simply curious about the state of various pollutants (including effects from neighboring wildfires) in northern Nevada, WashoeAir has you covered.
With easy-to-read, color-coded information (sourced from government agencies such as the EPA, WCAQMD, and NDEP), you'll be able to tell at a glance whether conditions warrant closer inspection or not.
If you reside in Washoe County and have a wood-burning source of heat, you'll appreciate seeing the current burn code declarations during the periods that information is available.
• With all the horrible air quality, lately, we missed a border color on the gauge in the case of Good and Moderate! Not the end of the world but the rows will stand out better on Green and Yellow days now.
• Fixed the variable "black screen" on startup while initial location is determined
• Incorporated some of the common changes and minor bug fixes made for the AQeye tvOS app to keep everything consistent
• Rethought the data presentation to now include more context
-- the Air Quality Index scale is right on the screen
-- current values shown both numerically and graphically within the overall scale
-- source is now prominently displayed since some data locations (such as State of Washington) report customized values on the same overall scale
• Squashed pesky bugs like:
-- not recognizing the locale properly on initial install to know whether you prefer Fahrenheit or Celsius.
-- where, if you watched the screen for hours, the background image fetch would eventually cause a crash. What, you're NOT that enthralled with the photography where you forget to look away?
Welcome to the all new WashoeAIR!
Some things that have changed:
• The platform has been rewritten from scratch in order to support more users and more features faster and more simply.
• There's a new visual layout that includes even more information about active pollutants (when available).
• There's clearer control over notifications.
Ratings and Reviews
There is a long delay of 3-4 hours because when wildfires hit and you smell them
Wildfire smell indicates a 4 hour delay before the result are reported. Wind conditions should be included so one can determine if things will get worse or better. Sometimes there aren’t any results for days. Needs some tweaking but the concept is important
Developer Response ,
“Wind conditions” is a great suggestion. I’ll see what info is available to add.
As far as the delay from event onset to app reporting, there are multiple factors to keep in mind: location of reporting station vs event, time-to-report on behalf of the reporting agency(ies), uptime of the reporting portals (this has been an issue with some of the Carson/Douglas info unfortunately).
Result? A small to large delay depending on how all the moving pieces align. This is not optimal but few (if any) primary data sources are directly accessible.
Info available when you need it.
Some of the add backgrounds are too busy, it makes it not as easily read. But the information is great to have at your fingertips particularly during fire season (and inversion time too I'm sure).
This app is good
