Tap That App is a monthly segment where we feature an app our editors think is cool.

Air pollution has long been a hot button issue in the Middle Kingdom, with some cities having experienced the occasional ‘airpocalypse.’ And while the Central Government has taken unprecedented measures to fight air pollution in China, it remains an issue today.

As we transition from summer to fall, and eventually winter, the quality of air in your city tends to become worse. With that being said, you’ll likely want one of the most accurate air pollution tracking apps in the business. AirVisual is the perfect go-to air quality-monitoring app – it tracks PM2.5, PM10, Ozone, NO2, CO2 and SO2.

It includes a seven-day air quality index (AQI) forecast, which proves helpful when planning your next outdoor run or activity. One of our favorite features about the app is its map, which shows the AQI readings from the nearest reading stations as well as a real-time air quality map of Earth – which is quite depressing, to say the least.

So, if you’re looking for a trustworthy pollution-tracking tool, check out AirVisual for the latest readings and forecasts in your area.

AirVisual is available on iOS and Android devices.
