I don’t usually write a review, this app made me feel that I should share. It is really good application, not only showing your air quality, it also detect your location and show air in your area. It also have a recommendation whether it’s safe to do activity outside, open window etc, and even a forecast for the next 5 days. The control of the Philips air purifier is also very good, I can track air quality at home, control the machine getting the air ready for my arrival.
Broken in China?
Is this app broken in Beijing China? I am in Beijing right now, the app is telling me the air quality score is 345 (which is really, really polluted), however the air is super clean right now. I’m near the center of the city, where the pollution can be awful. I’ve been outside on days where the pollution is 200+ and it’s living hell, the air quality right now is nowhere near 200 or even 100, in fact I rarely experience days in Beijing where the air as clean as it is today! Another note: Currently the app says the air in Tianjin (天津市), a small city near Beijing, has an air quality score of 700+. With the air being super clean in Beijing right now the possibility of Tianjin having air quality scores that bad are very unlikely. If you live in California and remember the massive wildfire that happened recently, the smoke from that fire caused a score of about 450.
Always good but a small bug.
I have been using the app for more than three years to detect the air quality in my home, and it has always been good to use! But after a recent update, I failed to get the data for my air quality monitor laser egg 1, hope the developer will fix the bug!(while get the data from laser egg original app successfullly)
Makes phone lag
Awesome app, appears very accurate based on other sources, and love the widget. My only complaint is that when it's running on my phone, everything is very (very) laggy. Not just the app but everything on my phone. It's fixed when I close the app out of multitasking, but it'd be nice to be able to have it run in the background.
Great app!but crashed on my Apple Watch 1st-gen
Its been a great app, it always be! But...actually it got crashed on my apple watch 1st-gen. I did reinstall the app both on iPhone & watch... Still get crashed...sad face... But i'll give it 5stars consider the experience it has providing to me, and hope the developer could fix this bug as soon as possible.
I downloaded this app for the pollen complications which worked for a few days than disappeared. What happened ? I would like an option too have a complication specifically for pollen because it seems like no one else does that and this app was recommended for Apple Watch users looking for that complication not just overall air data that factors that in. Also your current city location feature is broken, it does not update from location to location and sometimes it shows no data on the watch at all.
Became very unreliable after May 2019
It seems that for some countries the source of data was changed or started to be adjusted in line with public data provided by local state weather control, which sometimes shows levels of contamination 3-6 times lower from the real ones. Do double check with other sources (not just other applications that may use shares same sources of air quality) and always consider visual check as minimal steps for the educated guess of what’s in the air outside.
Clean, concise, powerful
It has all the info you need presented in a pleasant and simple fashion. It does what it says and does it well. I do wish the map would start more zoomed in to your current location, instead of showing a whole country. That would probably save the developer a ton of money in API requests as well ;)
Great app for controlling air purifier
I use it to control my Philips air-purifier. I love the app and the controls are intuitive and responsive. One problem I have with it is the filter replacement reminder, why is it in hours? It’s so confusing. I’m to change my filter in 2400 hours? Why HOURS! How many days is that? Now I have to get a calculator! An option to change the unit to days would be most welcome!
It‘s good but...
There is a big problem and it has been around for a long time. The amounts of city ranking at most only 100, but there are 370 cities in mainland China, so no matter whether it is the best or worst query, only 200 cities can be found, and 170 can't find it. For example, this app cannot find the average annual PM2.5 in Shanghai.
I love it
I have asthma and I looked around a lot on the App Store, Nothing else had all of the information that I needed. I would recommend it to anyone who has sensitive lungs. I know when I should limit outdoor activities and when I can do a little bit more outdoor activities.
I use this app mainly because I am live in China and the air pollution there is horrible! There is one problem though, air matters keeps crashing on my Apple Watch series 2, wonder if they can fix this. Other than that, a great app!
Great app with Apple Watch complication, but recently became unreliable
We live in China and rely on this for easy-access, the app overall is very good but the Apple Watch complication sometimes doesn’t update. The complication will show a different number than the actual reading (shown in the same app) for the particular monitoring site selected.
They really need to fix the search function. It needs to let you type in a city and then provide the nearest results. Right now, you have to type in the city, spell it correctly, and if the city isn’t in its database, the window stays empty without providing any indication if it’s still searching, or just crashes and got hung up. Clunky interface.
Data accuracy in China suspect
This apps aqi data is generally much better than other sources. Could be because govt controls what can be posted. Just be aware. I’ve seen the Shenzhen 2.5pm metric half of what other sources show. And sometimes when the numbers are actually the same, the app says green/very good when other sources say yellow/unhealthy.

Please explain areas of the US that are red indicating heat & high AQI when it is not a fire, like NW TN and around Des Moines IA?
