What ever happened to using the barometers in the iPhone 6(+) and the iPad Air 2? Does Apple forbid 3rd party apps from getting their hands on barometer data?

+Benjamin Kerensa Yes! I'm currently seeing if we can iterate on the existing PressureNet app and transition it from a nerdy pressure app to a really good weather app. However, it seems many users don't want that to happen (there was a big outcry when I removed pressures on the map, for example, and other features too).

Either way, the goal is to have an awesome crowdsourced weather app on both iOS and Android (with the same features). That might mean re-writing the Android app, or not - we'll see.

Also, a new Beta is rolling out today :).

PressureNet 5.0 Beta is rolling out! You should receive it in the next few hours. This is a big update. Join this Google+ Community (https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/109657802451413701146) and join the Beta program to test: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/ca.cumulonimbus.barometernetwork

NEW FEATURES:

- The map now shows temperature forecasts for the next ~8 hours

- The UI is new! It's not quite material design yet, but it's much more modern and user-friendly. What do you think of this direction?

- A few features have been removed, like the barometer icons on the map as well as the contribution statistics, and condition animations.

PressureNet is going to become a proper weather app, and this release is our first step towards that goal.

I'm excited to hear your feedback on this beta! Thanks!

Hey guys! Glad to hear about the exciting future of the service. I love that the data is being marketed to services/researchers who would use it to revolutionize weather forecasting.

PressureNet 4.5 Beta is out! We're optimizing for you to share weather conditions with people nearby. The update includes a better UI for managing weather conditions, lots of bugfixes and new SDK features for Android developers.

What do you think of this release?

Also, do you notice any change in battery usage? We changed the location/GPS code significantly so I want to make sure we don't adversely affect battery life.

To download this beta, make sure to join our Google+ community and follow the link to download: https://plus.google.com/communities/109657802451413701146

Thanks!

PressureNet 4.6.0 Beta is out! This is a simple update with a couple of improvements:

- Fixing issues with weather notifications (no more alerts saying "light rain 9,000km North")

- Improving granularity of alerts: option to not be notified about clear or cloudy weather

What do you think?

I used to be able to export all of my data going as far back as I had but now I'm only seeing that I can export up to a week in the past. How do I export it all?

Hi Kevin,

My apologies - we moved the export button location and in the process accidentally removed that feature.

For the moment, it will be difficult for you to get your data, but soon I will ship a fix to that problem and you can then export the full dataset. Sorry about the inconvenience.
