DS Barometer is a handsomely crafted barometer and air pressure recorder for Android devices with or without a barometric pressure sensor.
This barometer is more than a simple air pressure reader. It has the advantage of calculating the mean sea level pressure at your location. Mean sea level pressure is the pressure value reported on weather maps and is a standardized pressure value that allows you to compare the atmospheric pressure at different locations regardless of the temperature and altitude. This type of comparison is used to make meaningful weather predictions. To make this calculation, the application will require your permission to access your location.
The app also includes a background pressure monitoring feature that was designed specifically for a mobile barometer unit. Our pressure monitor can handle changes in location and altitude because all recorded pressures are reduced to sea level. Please be aware that to use the background monitoring feature, the app will require your permission to access the background location all the time.
Besides its use for weather prediction, barometric pressure monitoring can also be helpful for people with barometric migraine headaches and other barometric-pressure-related medical conditions, such as arthritis, that may be aggravated by changes in barometric pressure.
For devices equipped with a barometer sensor, this application uses the atmospheric pressure measured by your phone to calculate the sea level adjusted barometric pressure at your location. Temperature and altitude, also used in the calculation, are obtained by matching your position against weather and altitude survey databases. These values are more reliable than the values returned from your GPS chip and your phone’s temperature sensor and may result in a more meaningful barometric (mean sea level pressure) reading.
★ No guessing about how the values displayed by the app were obtained. Tap on any of the dials and get a detailed explanation of how the results were determined.
★ Easily control unit reporting for pressure, temperature, and altitude by tapping on any meter.
★ Includes Altimeter supported by LIDAR and/or RADAR topographic surveys of your area.
★ Outdoor temperature reporting.
★ Free background atmospheric pressure monitoring with graphs and charts. Recorded data can be exported as a .csv file so you can review it in a spreadsheet program on your computer.
Devices without a barometric pressure sensor will show the barometric pressure at your location by using your GPS and internet connection.
NOTE: Some devices and some apps that offer a battery-saving feature will turn off the monitoring features in this application. If barometer monitoring is enabled and you are not able to record the pressure, you will need to turn off battery-saving features.
The app contains some advertising which is used to help offset the development costs. If you cannot stand advertising and do not want to purchase the ad-removing feature, please do not download.
