    My doctor recommended that I get an app that would show me the pollen and air conditions locally. This app was associated with the weather report on my iPhone so I got it. It has helped me determine when to use my inhaler for easier breathing since it predicts the conditions that will be coming up soon. I’ve been very pleased with this app and recommended highway.

    I just downloaded this. I was liking it until I discovered that there are absolutely no pollins in Colorado in July though! 🙄 We have been seeing Cottonwood flying for a couple of weeks now and my decorative grasses are close! I'll give it some time for it to acclimate. 🙂

    This is a very nice app. Easy to use and very understandable! However, I want people to know this app may not display the most accurate air quality data (although is probably close enough for some personal decisions on outdoor activities) If your health depends on it, then you need to use the EPA's website - do not use this app!! Just read what the license agreement says: "information may appear in a delay and/or may be partial or inaccurate, and therefore we cannot and do not warrant that the content available on the App is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free."...

    A very well done application. I'm using it mostly to check the quantity/type if pollens in the air. The pollurants breakdown is very useful, too. Data are coherent with other monitoring systems on the territory.

    Huge fan of this app. My wife and I are both outdoorsy people, often running or biking daily and camping on the weekends. This app has given us a tool to make better decisions on whether we should exercising inside or out, and what areas of our home state of Colorado have the best air quality when making weekend travel plans.

    Although it’s pretty easy to take a look outside and see what the air quality is (or check the news), how bad is it really? This app aggregates all that information into one place! The interface is easy to use and aesthetically please! Highly recommend!

    I had this installed every summer to tell me the air quality in my area because of forest fires. The developers ruined what they had...its like an entirely different app now. The readings now say we have good air quality...yet if one looks outside, you can see smoke all over the place in the atmosphere. Something is dreadfully wrong here with these readings.
  • Highly questionable data Aug 21, 2020

    By Laszlo Panaflex
    UPDATE: still dangerously inaccurate readings. We are adjacent to several wildfires and air quality is bad with a strong smoky odor and visible soot blocking the sun. AirNow, PurpleAir, and the county’s AQ monitoring agency are all saying the air is hazardous and not to go outside at all. The local authorities are saying not to be outside for more than a minute without a respirator. Meanwhile, Breezometer is is displaying a “green” status and telling me the air in my area is “Good” (67). This is extremely dangerous and irresponsible. Users’ health could be put at risk by Breezeometer’s bad data. I’m going to have to uninstall and update my rating to 1 star. - - - - - I want to like this app, but the data sources for its air quality readings do not seem to be very accurate. It is literally raining ashes outside right now, yet but the app says my area’s air quality as “moderate (55)”. All the other AQ readings (AirNow, Purple Air, BAAQMD, etc.) show the air as hazardous. Also, it drives me nuts when the Breezometer app alerts me of an active fire just 4 miles away, but when I tap the “Learn More” button, nothin happens. This app needs a lot of work, IMO.

    It was a great app until it stopped updating the active pollen in my area. Now it just says "out of season" for every listed pollen or grass allergy. Which is simply NOT true!! And that was the only reason I downloaded the app...now its useless to me!

  • Not Really Mar 7, 2017

    By Funkldred
    This app uses some type of algorithm to predict what the air quality should be in your area, not what it actually is. It does not use air monitoring devices, for instance. It is so often radically wrong as to be useless. For instance, I've seen heavy rains for 12 hours straight and still had the app tell me the air quality was poor with a heavy load of small particulate matter. Impossible! It has also told me the air was great, when it was in reality so clogged with acrid smoke from burning off the sugar cane fields that you needed to hold a cloth over your face to breathe. The app is useless. Don't waste your time with it.

  • Inaccurate readings Aug 23, 2020

    By scrantonicity- Electric City
    I’m hugely disappointed with this app. It was always my go to and I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to realize how bad and inaccurate it is. It is incredibly irresponsible especially in a time where wildfires are happening so often. It will literally be raining ash and the app never leaves the “moderate” setting. People need apps like this to stay alert and really know how hazardous the air is at the time, but BreezoMeter is either broken or irresponsible. Save your time and money and look for a more accurate app!
  • Not Accurate Jan 7, 2019

    By Meechelle M
    I love the layout of this app. It gives a breakdown of what pollutants are in the air and recommends what actions you should take. Unfortunately, for my area at least, it is extremely inaccurate. Right now it says the air quality in my area is moderate, while all other apps, websites, news reports, and my own eyes are telling me the air quality is very unhealthy. I wish they would fix it because I otherwise prefer the app to others.

  • OK if you live near an air monitor Jul 11, 2020

    By amyxandra
    I learned that I live almost one hundred miles from an EPA air monitor. So this app is useless. It was giving me a reading from across the state that had nothing to do with my location. There should be some distance limit or the app should say where the reading is coming from. The EPA site honestly tells me it cannot get a reading for my location because the closest monitor is so far away.

  • Now I get it Aug 20, 2018

    By Jasmyn Kelley
    Originally I wrote a bad review about the accuracy but if you go to the very bottom of the screen that shows your air quality, there is a scale that shows you the AQI LEVEL. It’s different numbering than we use in the USA(this company is in Israel), the lower the number the worse the air quality. I do agree with the one review that this app should adapt to each country’s AQI scoring.

    I like the app very much, the info is accurate and helpful. However the widget does not work. It shows the same value as the example and does not change with location or refresh.
  • It was fine until last week’s update. Sep 27, 2020

    By _h_g
    The AQI number doesn’t match your local address number you see on the map view any longer. Also it doesn’t match other local AQI numbers anymore either. What happened? Where is this new misleading data coming from??? Change it back to how it was!

    By pfed1
    The need for hyper-local air quality data is obvious, but this app provides misinformation. For example, during the recent California wildfires, the app reported that my air home quality was “GOOD“ (76 - higher numbers indicate better air), when three Purple Air sensors within a few blocks of my home reported air quality was “UNHEALTHY” (150 or higher, using the US air quality index (AQI) where higher numbers indicate worse air). We could smell and see smoke in the air at the time.
  • Maybe the European API is Calculated Differently? Sep 7, 2017

    By LaurenAPMT
    It looks like the company who created this app. is based out of Israel, so maybe the API is calculated differently, because the API result I was given is numerically the opposite of the result I was given from my state's government-maintained website. My state is showing an API of 175, whereas the app is showing an API of 16. Both indicate poor air quality. I will be deleting the app., because I need to be able to check the air quality with values I can compare and understand.
