First launch

The application has just been published at Google Play and are available free. This very first version contains the following:

  • Save data by location: It uses the network connection to estimate the location and stores the air pressure together with the location. This enables the application to be used both home and at work. In fact it is useful everywhere – just make sure to stay for a minimum of 20 minutes (that is the time it takes to receive enough information for the current location.
  • Background worker: You do not even have to start the application every time you restart your phone and you do not have to wait inside the application to gather weather data. All this happens automatically in the background.
  • Pressure trend: You are able to see the pressure trend for the last 12 hours for your current location.
  • Weather forecast: The weather forecast is presented on a 24 hour basis. This means that Smart Barometer analyses the last 24 hours of pressure data and make a decision about the next 24-48 hours.
  • Pause screen: While no weather information is ready for your location you want get presented with old data. Instead you will get a message about a new data collection. When the new data is ready, it will automatically be shown.
  • Energy efficient: It is very important that the background work is very power efficient so it doesn’t consumes too much of the battery power. The Smart Barometer application is developed to be energy saving but powerful.
  • No internet: The application has been designed to work without any internet connection. This means that you can use Smart Barometer on holidays without receiving a big data bill. The application uses the internet connection to receive ads so it no connection is available no ads will be shown.

I hope you all will have use of this application. If you get into any troubles please let me know and I will try to correct help you.
