When the temperature around us is too hot to handle, most of us blurt out, “I wonder what the temperature is today.” – I bet we’ve all heard this, and we’ve probably also been the one to say it sometimes too. More recent smartphones feature built-in temperature sensors that can answer this important life question; but… if you don’t currently have a smartphone that can read the air’s temperature; you may still be able to measure temperature with these 5 amazing Android apps.
1. Electronic Thermometer HD
Available in both Celsius and Fahrenheit, Electronic Thermometer HD is a temperature gauging app that can be used as a widget on your home screen for constant access and updates. And it’s really easy to set up.
The first thing you’ll need to do is calibrate the app with the temperature outside – you can get this directly from the local weather forecast as this measures outside temperature.
And if you don’t have a temperature sensor on your smartphone; fear not, the app will use its in-built technology to do this instead! Follow the instructions and get your temperature measurements in.
2. Borce Trajkovski Thermometer
Software developer Borce Trajkovski has set about with another show stopping app that can help us measure temperature with our smartphones.
The retro design gives it a whole new user experience and it’s just as good as the Electronic Thermometer HD.
Calibrate by following the instructions on the app. It’s super simple and super accurate.
3. Heaveen Thermometer
Heaveen Thermometer is a great app to install on your Android devices, it’s free to use and super easy to install and set up. All you’ll need to do is calibrate the sensor to the outside air temperature and you’re good to go.
Be sure to follow the instructions for accurate readings. It is recommended that you do not touch or handle your smartphone when calibrating – this will alter temperature readings.
4. Thermometer Plus
Probably the most stunning of designs in the lot here; Thermometer Plus is an app that measures your temperature in style; so if you’re all about the look then this app is probably the one for you.
Its in-app features include air temperature measure, altitude scaling, an atmospheric pressure gauge and a humidity sensor. Make sure to keep your smartphone away from heat sources, mangents or wiring during calibration.
5. Smart Thermometer
This Smart Thermometre delivers its namesake pretty well, it’s a smart app that can perform a bundle of temperature measuring features such as ambient temperature, atmospheric pressure and even relative humidity.
The vibrant colour scheme and user-friendly design will make you want to use it more and more! The only catch here is your phone needs a temperature sensor in-built into its body; otherwise the app can only be used as a weather forecast predictor.
With these 5 free Android apps, you’ll never have to wonder how hot your car gets after a day at work, or think about the temperature while you’re on a boat trip this Summer. Use your smartphone to measure temperature like a pro!
