The app tells you how fresh or polluted the air is in a city hour by hour, on a scale of 1-7: from fresh air to airpocalypse. Helps answer questions like: Is it the best time to go for a run?; When should I go for a walk in the park with my children? Will forecast pollution levels as well.

Reviewer: Asthma UK
Review: The Plume Air Report app, developed by Plume Labs and part-funded by the French government, uses data collected from examining pollutant sources like nitrogen dioxide, ozone and carbon monoxide at 11,000 stations in 30 countries. Analysing the data, the app rates the risk to health using a colour-coded system. The advice is then tailored to the needs of cyclists, runners, parents and children, with a separate colour-coded system explaining how safe each area is.
