About us

Our aim

Our goal with Smart Barometer is to create a weather application for the Android OS. It is very important that this application will work everywhere, be user friendly and power efficient.

What is Smart Barometer?

Smart Barometer is a weather application that does not require a network connection to provide weather updates. It takes advantage of the barometric sensor within the phone. The main purposes of this application is to:
+ Provide weather information
+ Provide pressure trend
The weather information states the coming weather changes for the next 24-48 hours. The pressure trend is for you to make your own decision about the weather. The trend is very important when predicting the weather as it is the trend that tells what it will be. Typically, a falling pressure means rain and raising pressure means sun. However, in fact this is not always the truth and because of that the weather information can be a little of some times.

The future for Smart Barometer

As long as new ideas and improvements for Smart Barometer is coming, we will continue sending out updates. Therefore, we are very dependent on users telling this – so if you have any comments for the application please let us know.
Also, if you want to help us translate the application into your language please let us know.

  1. Hello.
    Can't install your apps on my Runbo RunboX5-W, because Google play say that my phone is incompatible device. But it's not true. Runbo has android 4.0.4 and barometric sensor.

    2. Thx for reply ;) If possible, you can add altimeter. (Some other barometer apps has this function).
      For example: I am on firs floor, I select zero on altitude, than I go to 25 floor and I will know altitude.

  4. Thx you :) Now your app is beautiful. Now I delete SyPresure, because your app is better.

    Can you add preference to enable more graphs? More graphs settings? Presure by hours like now ( but I can choose how many hours I want to see). Preasure by days (I can choose how many days I want to see.) This is lint to screen of another logger or preasure. http://www.part.lt/img/b5055f2d42f69ef0d02f909084690272359.png

    Please comment what you think about it ;]

  5. Hello, can you explain how works "USE location" function? It use gps, or internet connection? And what is better if I use "use location" mode?

    1. Hello, Use location acivates or deactivates the location filter. This Means that if it is active the pressure trend and forecast will be based on samples within approximately 500 meters of your current location. If not, it will base the pressure trend and forecast on all sampled data no matter the location.

      The problem is that as you are traveling the pressure wll change and therefore be unrelyable. So my recommendation isto leave it on.

      And finally, it uses the mobile network to triangulate a position (like gps but less accurate). It uses no internet connectionfor anything but the advertises so it will Work perfectly without an internet connection as well.

      I hope this anwers your questions.
