  • Super Helpful // A Daily App Jul 12, 2018

    By WillyB_CO
    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.

    Looks really attractive and well designed. However, I live presently in such a clean-air location that it's difficult to judge its accuracy. So, I'll have to try it out longer and in different places before final verdict.
  • Neet app - but not really accurate Mar 8, 2017

    By Petey55505
    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."...

    Latest update has it using 2 different scales, one "local" and one "global." Problem is that the local scale seems to be low number is better, and global scale is high number is better.

    Most accurate of the three I've tried. Attractive, intuitive interface, with weather, pollen and pollutants all in one place. This morning the app notified me when air quality worsened. Nice. I'd happily pay a one-time $5.99 fee to get rid of ads (banner only, so far), but I won't pay a monthly fee.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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!

    Needs more widgets, want notifications but asking for user data or you can't get notifications is bad idea. Local and global are different numbers 1 out of 10, then it's out of 100, it's not the most user friendly.
  1. Checking the air quality should be as simple as checking the weather. This index is clear to understand and simple to use with an intuitive layout
  2. Discover the healthiest areas in your location with real-time air quality maps that cover 67 countries around the world
  3. Get health recommendations that are tailor-made just for you to help decide whether to go outside or plan a trip based on air quality

  • Helpful app for someone with asthma! Sep 15, 2020

    By B3cc4j3nn
    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!

    The „Map View“ is really awesome. Suggestion is to be able to move around the „cards“ and be able to launch the app with this view to not have to click anything

    Seems to be accurate, I like the mapping as we have clear and bad areas just a mile apart because of wind and terrain.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

    Used to be really good and easy to see where air pollution is coming from, but they redesigned the map, and now it's harder to use.

    I just downloaded this app to check the allergen reports. Those are great! The weather temperature is way off. It is 60° where I am, but this app tells me that it is 15°. I guess I'll have to get another app that will show everything correctly.

  • Dangerously inaccurate Nov 10, 2019

    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.

    Inaccurate! Says it's 43F and partly cloudy at my location. It's 22F and snowing! Location was accurate though. Worthless app. UNINSTALLING
