11 Best barometric pressure apps for Android

11 Best barometric pressure apps for Android

Not everyone knows that many Android devices have such an interesting thing as a barometer. Why is it needed in the phone? Is it only for the user to be able to measure atmospheric pressure? In fact, the atmospheric pressure sensor is part of the GPS system and makes it easier to locate.

But, of course, no one prevents us from using the barometer in a more traditional way. All that is required for this is to install a special barometer program from Play.Market. Below we will give some examples of such programs:

SyPressure (Barometer)

SyPressure (Barometer) app deserves to be on the first place in our list. The program has all the necessary functions and has a clear interface. It includes its own widget, which shows not only the current pressure but also the predicted weather change. If desired, the program can show notifications about future changes in the weather. Alerts appear as a weather icon in the notification bar. Unfortunately, the latest version of the program has an annoying bug: alerts began to turn on themselves in the settings of the program, what makes the smartphone sometimes ring at the most inopportune time.

At the top of the program window, the current pressure is displayed. You can choose one of several possible views: scale, chart, graph. Units of measurement can be chosen according to your taste: hPa, inHg, mmHg, psi, atm. At the bottom of the window, the pressure change (rising/falling) and the expected weather change are displayed. Here you can configure notifications.

In pro version, there is also an altimeter, but in a free version of the program, it is missing. In addition, the pro version allows you to set the update interval.

vBarometer

vBarometer is another useful tool for measuring barometer pressure. The program is paid, but, in comparison with SyPressure has more settings. It also supports several different views: indicator, graph, altimeter and list of measurements. In addition, there are several widgets of different sizes – 1 × 1, 2 × 1, 2 × 2.

And in vBarometer any measurement, any graph or widgets can be fine-tuned. For example, for a more accurate weather forecast, you can specify a base measurement for your location, and for the altimeter –  a base altitude above sea level. You can set the desired display period (from 6 to 48 hours) for the pressure change graph.

You can also select the primary color of the graphs and the interface or set the transparency of the widgets. Like SyPressure, this program can work with different units of measurement.

All in all, vBarometer left the most pleasant impressions. And in my opinion, it definitely costs its money.

Barometer Pro

Barometer Pro is a professional tool for measuring atmospheric pressure. It works on devices equipped with a pressure sensor. In addition, an altimeter (measuring the height from the change in pressure).

The main functions and features of this barometer:

  • It is a window with two graphs, an indicator and an altimeter plus a set of widgets.
  • It shows the atmospheric pressure in hPa, inHg, mmHg, psi, atm
  • All colors are adjusted!
  • You can change the transparency of widgets.
  • It shows statistics for a month.
  • Displays statistics on the widget and a special window with graphs
  • Displays two graphs – hourly and by day with a time range setting.
  • Displays the exact measurement of the current pressure.
  • Altimeter – setting the base measurement of altitude, pressure and hourly height graph (for those who go to the mountains on hikes).
  • Sensor correction, sensor interrogation intervals (to save energy), setting ranges, low and high-pressure areas, etc. can be set.
Attention! The widget works only on communicators equipped with an atmospheric pressure sensor. At the moment: Samsung Galaxy Note, Samsung Galaxy S3 (SGS3), Galaxy Nexus, Motorola Xoom, Sony Ericsson Active, Xiaomi Phone 2 and their clones.

Barometer Reborn

Barometer Reborn is a simple barometer and an atmospheric pressure meter. You can monitor how changing of atmospheric pressure affects well-being, which is beneficial to people with migraines and seasonal health changes.

Knowing in advance about the upcoming changes, you can try to reduce their unpleasant effect to a minimum. For example, if the barometer shows an increase in pressure, then these days you should try to reduce the physical loads to a minimum. First of all, it is important for people suffering from respiratory diseases (such as asthma) or hypertension. Pressure reduction is, on the contrary, a reason to walk more in the open air.

The main functions and features of the app:

  • It has a nice user-friendly interface 
  • Shows current atmospheric pressure
  • Supports multiple units: hPa, inHg, mmHg, psi, atm
  • You can use a widget on your home screen

You can also set notifications about atmospheric pressure changes.

eWeather HD

eWeather HD (weather forecast and barometer) – a whole weather station for your Android. It provides a detailed information about the weather for the next 10 days. But what attracts attention from the first glance is the amazing images of the sun and clouds. Looking at them, you forget why, in fact, the application was opened … But in addition to the pictures in the program, there is an incredible amount of other features, and the weather forecast is accurate so that eWeather HD deserves user attention.

The main screen of the weather display looks impressive: humidity, pressure, temperature (real and felt), time of sunrise and sunset, moon phases, temperature change charts, a probability of precipitation, geomagnetism … By the way, this is a useful function for meteodependent people. If you suffer from geomagnetic storms, then plan your affairs with a forecast.

Equally useful for weather-affected people will be the ability to observe changes in atmospheric pressure (the pressure change chart changes color in the event of dangerous changes.) eWeather HD shows the change in atmospheric pressure over the last 24 hours, with a sharp drop in pressure, its graph is shown in red.

The head goes around from the number of functions of this application. It really is a whole pocket weather station, which looks very cool in terms of graphics.

Medical statistics show that more than half of people react in some way to weather changes. Someone reacts practically unnoticeable, and some, on the contrary, suffer any changes in the weather, pressure or magnetic storms very hard. In addition, changes in the weather can cause problems in people with chronic joint diseases, cardiovascular system, in people with low or high blood pressure.

Knowing in advance about the upcoming changes, you can try to reduce their unpleasant effect to a minimum. Therefore, hurry up to download one of the offered applications on your smartphone and be always informed!
