  • Bring web features to mobile app Sep 8, 2020

    By Many Disappointed Users
    The service is fantastic so this rating is for the company and the service it provides so that I can have peace of mind and know when it is safe to open my windows and let fresh air in. The mobile app is a bit cluttered and not intuitive. I also would like to see the mobile app have the same (or better) functionality than the mobile website. Specifically, on the mobile website I can see a map of my neighborhood and it is layered with dynamic points of interest, fires, wind patterns, and a heatmap. None of this is available on the mobile app, so to get this functionality I have to keep the mobile website open and come back to it, rendering the app a lot less useful. I would also make it easier to find the nearest air quality station by allowing the user to enter an address and have the search results show nearby air quality stations so that the user can select the station they prefer to monitor in the My Air section of the app. The AirVisual Earth feature is fantastic, very evocative: it is beautiful and compelling and disheartening at the same time to be able to see air quality around the world. Thank you AirVisual team for putting this tech and service out to the world for consumption, awareness, and perhaps even reflection.

    Installed it in my 2 devices, works perfectly. No ads. Due to my allergy, I use it a lot to monitor air quality before outdoor activity. Weather is useful although not the most accurate, but then again this is not weather app. Oh did i say it has no ads?

  • Did my research, get it Sep 5, 2016

    By Grindelli
    I have lived in China for 3 years and have a two-year old boy. Once he was born I became more interested in what all the AQI apps actually did and started researching them. AirVisual is by far the best one I have come across (having used 10+ different apps). Not only can you choose to use the US index (which I would highly recommend) you also can see which pollutants are contaminating the atmosphere at any given time. I also have a laser egg (also highly recommended) which is a portable particulate counter and the readings on my mobile device and the closest monitoring station on the app are always within +/-20 meaning they are not contradicting each other. On other apps there would often times be a 50 point+ difference between what my particulate counter read and the other random apps I was using. Also, do note that some apps do, like airvisual, have the different pollutants listed and their levels but airvisual is the only app I have found that combines that with the ability to choose the US AQI standard. My go-to app when it comes to air pollution.

    Since the latest update on 09 Feb 2021, the widget doesn't update hourly. Hopefully they'll fix this soon because I like the app. Edit: found the fix, uninstall, reinstall, then grant "all the time" permissions to location. Perfect now.

  • Your AQI in an app Nov 8, 2019

    By Kido@PDX
    This free app can help you with information and forecasting of the air quality in your area. Since the 1970’s I’ve been personally interested in my home environment mainly because 3 of my family members, my husband & 2 children have hay fever in the Spring. We installed an electronic air filter in our furnace and air conditioning system which seemed to help immensely. Fat forward another 30+ years when we discovered the AirVisual app & their small device that could monitor our indoor air quality. Yes, using an AirVisual device is an easy way to monitor and improve your own air quality in your home. I discovered that NOT opening the windows to bring in a little fresh air was bad for us. Our carbon dioxide CO2 levels were getting in a higher range and causing headaches and lethargic behaviors. Being retired and at home most of the time, this became even more important to monitor our indoor AQI. Thank you AirVisual for providing the tools and information for a healthier lifestyle. 🥰

    I thought the app was great until it started telling me that the air quality went from the red to green(2! Which Seoul is never!) in a couple of minutes, when visibility outside was awful and all other sources were telling me the air was dangerous polluted. 💀

  • Forecast data is completely unreliable Aug 13, 2018

    By c0rlette
    While current local condition air quality seemed accurate, the forecast data, even just a few hours ahead, was completely wrong. I live in Oregon and we had horrible air quality last summer, in the unhealthy range repeatedly, even crossing into hazardous at times. With many wildfires burning across our region, we are all jumpy in fear of a repeat. For some reason, despite consistently good air this year, the app predicts unhealthy air 4 hours in the future every single day. During the first week I cancelled a number of recreational and outdoor activity plans based on these predictions. I am especially peeved about one of these cancellations, something that I really wanted to do and lost some reservation money. I followed the site for another week—same thing every day. I know air patterns and fire conditions can change rapidly but AirVisual was never correct. The forecast ability was the main draw for me so I deleted AirVisual and swapped it out for an app with a very simple design, just current AQ numbers in bubbles on a map, easy to navigate around a region.

  • Horribly inaccurate. Apr 30, 2017

    By Galia Stauffer
    I live in South Korea and have for a total of 5 years, spread out over the last decade in a 3 year stay and now 2 years into a 5 year stay, in that time the air quality here has gotten much much worse. I was recently diagnosed with asthma (something that is apparently becoming more common for people in Seoul) and have to check the air quality regularly. If it's above 100 aqi I have to wear a special filter mask to leave the house. I got this app to make it easier to check the AQI regularly, one of the big draws for this app is it notifies me if the AQI goes above 100, or it's supposed to. Yesterday it never dropped below 100 and I never got a notification (thankfully I'd had the thought to check online before leaving the house) and upon checking the app it said an AQI of 63 when it was really 163. If you're relying on this app for all your AQI information and live in a city with poor air quality such as Seoul you may be putting your health at risk by relying on this app.

  • Terrible app with device Jul 10, 2019

    By MusicalFreedom
    If you have an air iq, which I just bought. This app is pretty terrible. It has HUGE gaps in the reporting. For example I have my device on all day. And the graph for “daily” report only shows info for 10am-2pm then a huge gap of no data, and then more reporting from 5pm-11pm, then a huge gap again between 11pm-2am. It’s completely random each day with times it will decide not to record info. The decide itself shows what happened over the last 24 hours fine. But the app shows these huge gaps which makes it useless since you can’t look back at history on the device itself beyond a day. So this problem with the app makes in unusable and also severely damaged the usability of the device too since you can’t access historical data beyond a day. This makes testing in a bad air home almost impossible to see if you are making any progress or not. For a $300 device, the app should work flawlessly with it.

  • Excellent for Air Quality Forecast and Safety Sep 12, 2020

    By Ms. Whose-it-to-ya
    This app continues to be very helpful for knowing the current AIR QUALITY in your location. Easy to use and read, great color coordinated layout to compare different areas air quality. It was very helpful for my family and I both during the 2017 Thomas Fire in California and today (September 2020) during this extremely difficult fire season across the West Coast. The app is able to consistently be updated and can show you hourly, daily, and weekly forecast and more. You can add many locations on the same page to compare. If you scroll down, it also shows you the PM level of pollutant in your area (worth learning about) and has guideline suggestions for your safety depending on the pollutant level in your area. I’m checking daily for forecast updates. Much appreciated and highly recommended. Thankful for this updated information.

  • Current AQ features great, but forecast is a joke Sep 15, 2020

    By Veloscente
    The Good: Air Visual lets you set a local AQ station as default, and on launch, displays current AQI reading plus 48hrs of detailed history and a week of daily averages. At the bottom of the page, there is a map that lets you scan AQ readings at stations within a ~15mile radius. To get this AQ map, or any local AQ info, on Weather Underground website requires a half dozen clicks to toggle on PM2.5 filter, and WU does not offer any AQ history data, so this functionality makes AirVisual well worth the download. The Bad: I had high hopes the AIrVisual AQ forecast feature would help me plan outdoor activity by predicting windows of good air during California fire season. My hopes were unfounded: it is the worst “predictive” weather tool I have ever encountered! It would appear AirVisual’s forecast tool is based on the assumption that daytime pollution will simply dissipate overnight. With most of the West Coast on fire, the question is how much new smoke prevailing winds are bringing our way, and AirVisual’s forecast feature is clearly not built to gauge this, whether by visual smoke imaging or by other means.

  • Can be useful, but not always accurate Aug 14, 2018

    By J McRae
    I use this app to help prepare for bad air conditions, since I live in the PNW and the wildfire smoke aggravates my asthma. The statistical information and maps are really interesting and informative and the app itself is easy to use, but now I'm concerned that the information I'm getting is not accurate. There is currently an air advisory due to smoke in my area. For some reason, this app is insisting that the AQI is "Good" despite the fact that I can actually see pollution in the air. I'm not sure if this is really the app's fault or the fault of wherever the information is being sourced from, but regardless, I don't think I can rely on the information I'm being given to help me make informed decisions about my health anymore. It's unfortunate since I was really excited to find an app like this in the first place. If you decide to download it anyway, please be cautious and don't use it as your only source of information.

  • uncomfortable UI and sightly more cautious air rating Mar 28, 2018

    By Flatkatcarsnicoenckfc
    This app is useful because it has daily notifications and a widget. I use this app to check the air quality in Korea. But the number that this app reports is almost always higher than the Naver number, which is probably most correct in Korea. If it’s :( unhealthy on AirVisual, it’s just :/ not good on Naver. or if it’s :/ not good on AirVisual, it’s :| ok on Naver. It can be good to be cautious though! The worst part about this app is the UI. Swiping from the left never works to go back to the previous screen so I have to move my hand and push the back button in the top left corner. So annoying! There are a lot of menus on the bottom that I never click on like a map, a world ranking, and other not-that-useful stuff. Overall, it’s not that nice to look at and a bit frustrating to navigate. So I give 3 stars.

  • It Might Be a Good App if... Sep 15, 2020

    By Wildgreensoul
    I used the app for a couple of days and was pleased with the ease-of-use and the number of places I could monitor at a glance. More importantly, the app utilized different monitoring stations than the epa website, so it didn’t seem redundant. And, always a sucker for something pretty, its slick appearance appealed to me Then one day I was at work and the smoke kept rolling in, soon obscuring the view of a nearby butte, yet the app’s AQI number read 187, pretty much in the same range it had been for a number of hours. Finally, after I finished my work project, I checked 2 other monitoring sites and the AQI was actually over 400! Maybe it was a glitch with a particular monitoring station? Maybe this really is a great app??? In that moment I was disappointed, felt like got a false sense of security counting on the app so I deleted it.

  • Love the info-as far as it goes. Definitely recommend as one tool. Sep 12, 2018

    By KaileighATara
    Great app, but as a small population state in MAINE. I am in the second largest city, Lewiston and I am not sure if the readings ARE actually for LEWISTON or the most well known city of PORTLAND which would mean a difference for someone like me. What would be very helpful for people with lung diseases and air quality issues- knowing mold/ mildew spore counts as well as allergens such a ragweed, goldenrod, and other pollens. These are just as important to know for most of us. Thanks for the app- I have been telling others about it, but then I have to go to other sources for the other info- one app that would tell me everything I need to know as a person with severe lung disease and allergies would be the BEST!!!

  • Can’t trust it! Sep 14, 2020

    By veg4rs
    The app is nice enough, but there’s something seriously wrong with the actual data. For a few weeks now I’ve been comparing the values in the app against the actual readouts of the purple air sensors that it uses, and they’re never the same. Right now the sensor is showing 159 on the AQI and the app is showing 101, and that’s pretty typical for the discrepancy. Sometimes it’ll even show green when I can smell smoke and purple air sensors are telling me it’s in the deep red! I’ve given feedback about it within the app, but haven’t heard back. Go to the purple air site instead, or use the less detailed epa app

  • I really want to have this app... Sep 15, 2018

    By Brachylagus
    I want to be able to monitor the air quality for the sake of my child (who has a chronic condition) to aid in deciding if we do outdoor or indoor activities. I really was hoping this app would work, but there are FAR too many times it will say it’s a green air quality day with little or no particulate concerns when in reality it’s an orange or red air day. For example today there is literally ash falling from the sky as a result of a near by wildfire....and the app says it’s a Green Day with only 11 US AQI. If I look it up on a trusted web site it says it’s a red air day with 191 AQI. Since I can physically see particles in the air and even indoors can only smell smoke, I’m sure you can understand which one is the accurate one. I’ve officially given up on this app as I obviously can’t trust it.

  • Excellent in theory, crashes constantly Sep 16, 2020

    By Bookbinder lad
    Every time you switch away from the app to write a text or answer a call or look at a different weather app, when you return to it, it crashes. Without this problem it’s excellent, but with it, the app is very frustrating, because obviously pollution levels are something you check throughout the day. Update: I wait to update to the current year’s version of iOS right up until the new iOS is released. Tonight after upgrading from 12.x to 13.7, I hoped the crashes on IQAir would improve. Instead they are much worse: the app is unusable now. You see an initial reading and any interaction at all crashes the app, as does no interaction but waiting about 5 seconds after opening.
