Apple iPhone are supported with app to convert into equipments that detect. Light measurer, accelerometer, gyroscope, digital compass, proximity sensor, touch ID fingerprint reader, iSight camera sensor are some of the detectors in this list barometer app is also available. We are in discussion with such app. Barometer helps to find air pressure, altitude elevation changes and weather forecasting.
The air pressure is usually measured using hectopascal(hPa) unit. Mostly determine the elevation and forecast.
Some functions of barometer meter apps are first taken for discussion,
Elevation Estimation is an app which allows to read the current air pressure and compare it with sea level to calculate current elevation. We can keep the altitude to zero feet in ground level and calculate the relative altitude reading. This app allows our iPhone device to calculate the elevation we have climbed instantly so that we see change in the value for each feet we climb. It does not work with GPS so we do not have to worry about internet.
2. Weather forecasting
Weather forecasting app can be accomplished with barometer app of iPhone. The change in meter signifies there is a change in air pressure. If there is a low pressure at the horizon then we can expect rain and in turn if there is a fast pressure it indicates sunshine. When there is 3.5hPA or greater pressure there must be a change in whether. Barometer sensor in iPhone 6/6 plus is very useful for weather forecasting. Dark sky is first among the weather app for iphone 6/6 plus.
3. Physical activity tracking
Another feature of barometer app is to calculate the physical activity of the individual. Step counter calculate our physical activity when we are vertical using barometer app of iPhone 6 and iOS 9. Without GPS, with the help of electromagnetic field radiation we find the physical activity and the battery life is also saved here. With the help of barometer app GPS tracking workload is reduced for A8 Chip and act as a pedometer that finds the difference in iOS notification center we can find the progress while climbing stairs.
Here comes barometer sensor apps for iOS device with features discussed.
The Barometer and Altimeter is a free app that helps in detecting estimating elevation and also for weather prediction when calculating air pressure. In addition to this it can also be used with iOS 8 user and widget integration for it.
Barometer + Altimeter is one of the simple app among the barometer app. When we set starting point according to our desired location and we can check
Pedometer is a step counter app that counts the number of steps we move the whole day. When we have iPhone 6 with this app it will count the number of stairs climbed and number of floors are calculated based on it. The app also has widget function and accuracy is remarkable.
Barometer plus Altimeter app has all that we require for a good barometer app but it does not have any widget support, those who are not iPhone user uses GPS based altimeters.
