Hi,

Don't know if it's only on my end, but I think the app used up a bit too much GPS last 14h :)
I'm on Android 4.4.4, PressureNet 4.4.8, SDK 1.3.5
I restarted the app and will see if it happens again.
Unfortunately I forgot to get the logcat before restarting the phone :(

Thanks.

Edit: On a Nexus 5.

Hi Jacob,

No worries :)
I'm on this version since it came out on June 12, and this is the first time it happened. So I guess some rare exception event occurred.
I'll keep GPS on and monitor it. I have a power bank at hand just in case ;)
This time I'll try to grab a logcat.

Regards,
Mirton.

Google claims to have fixed the Nexus 5 barometer issue in Android 4.4.3! We just pushed out a Beta update of PressureNet (4.4.7RC) that removes our artificial N5 limits; you should receive it in the next couple of hours. #Nexus5 users, please let us know if you're on Android 4.4.3 and if both updates resolve the issue!

Having trouble with the 2x1 gadget. It's not updating with the latest pressure and sometimes it doesn't open the app when clicked on. I'm on version 4.4.2.
Thanks

Just a suggestion to have QNH (perhaps in addition to pressure-corrected GPS altitude) implemented for pressure calibration to MSLP to normalize variances due to terrain & other factors.

PressureNet 4.4 Beta is out! New Features:

- Severe Weather options when submitting weather conditions.
- Mean Sea-Level Pressure (MSLP) estimates based on GPS altitude

Make sure you're a part of our Play Store testing group by joining this Google+ community and then going here: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/ca.cumulonimbus.barometernetwork

What do you think of the new PressureNet?

PressureNet's CEO, Jacob Sheehy, recently wrote a concise and informative article on the importance of open source software. 

"The proliferation of smartphones allows us to create ad-hoc distributed data collection networks that we can use to solve problems we previously thought to be unsolvable."

Yep, +Simon Hill we've limited the Nexus 5 again. It was previously limited to every 2 hours, then not at all for a while when the bug seemed to be fixed, now back to 1 hour after seeing further comments on the bug thread ( https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=62938 ) saying the bug persists. Hopefully we'll be able to get rid of that limit eventually.

Small issue. When I open the app, hit the Map button on the bottom, and tap on the GPS icon to locate me, "Location services not available" pops up in a text box everytime.
However, I have the app submitting a reading every 30 minutes, and those readings are showing on the map in the correct spot when I manually move the map to my location, so I know the app can use the GPS just fine when it wakes my phone up for the readings.
In my phone's settings I have GPS enabled for all apps, but wifi location turned off, cause I prefer to use the GPS only. But if turn the wifi location on, the app is finally able to find my location on the map. Can this be fixed so the app doesn't have to rely on wifi to locate me?

Thanks for the bug report! I've been making a lot of changes to the location code - I'll investigate this bug and make sure I fix it. Thanks for the detailed report!

There is a new entry on the PressureNet blog! Breaking the Destructive Cycle: Understanding El Niño

"As important as it is to hear about the devastation El Niño causes, it’s also vital to understand the following: what exactly this phenomenon is; what causes it to occur; how we can better predict its coming; and what we can do to help put the brakes on its growing frequency and intensity."

How about a banner or badge showing user stat's, to put on websites or in signatures? Also, why does the "Animate" always say "No data to animate for this region and time"?

You could add optional opt-in for accounts. Some day. Yes, my zone is not carrying its weight for condition reports. FYI, when telling Google why I would be returning glass, I mentioned your app as one it didn't work with, but should, and referenced the blog.
