Barometer: a free app that showcases the iPhone 6 barometer sensor [Video]


Looking for a cool new free app to try on your brand new iPhone 6? Then look no further than Peter Breitling’s Barometer—a new easy to use barometer app for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Barometer is an extremely simple app with a minimal design. It allows you to easily measure heights, such as when riding an elevator, check altitude, perform measurements, and more.

It’s so cool that I deemed it worthy to create a video showcasing it in action. Have a look at our video demonstration of Barometer after the break.

The iPhone 6’s barometer sensor is extremely sensitive, and could pick up minimal increases in altitude. It wasn’t always 100% accurate when I pitted it against an old-fashioned tape measure to measure its height, but it wasn’t an egregious differences in measurement, either.

If you have the time, I recommend downloading Barometer and playing around with it. I can only imagine how interesting it would be to take it into a sky-scraper and ride the elevator to the top.

You can download Barometer from the App Store free of charge. Remember, you’ll need to have an iPhone 6 or an iPhone 6 Plus to use the app.
