ZephAir is a mobile app that determines air quality in 70 locations around the world. It features non-US areas, except for Washington, DC. The app is developed by the US Department of State and its government partners, and it displays all the data in real time. As for the core features, ZephAir allows its users to select preferred locations to see the most relevant data first. You can also enable notifications if you want to instantly receive updates on those locations that matter to you most. Since air quality is one of the core factors affecting our health, ZephAir creators made sure the app users can stay safe. Therefore, they provided recommendations on how to protect one’s health using the Environmental Protection Agency Air Quality Index. Lastly, ZephAir’s users can also access some historical data, such as air quality reports for the last 24 hours or two weeks. The ZephAir team continues working on the app, so if you haven’t found your location in the list, make sure to check after a while.

We regularly participate in eco-initiatives; therefore, we highly support organizations that share the same values. ZephAir is one way to draw attention to what is happening with the quality of air worldwide. We manually tested the app to make sure there are no ZephAir bugs that may scare off potential users.

ZephAir is a handy app for anyone interested in air quality, be it their home town or a distant area. The app shows real-time data from 70 locations worldwide. Although I support the app's concept, I wish it was optimized for all the screen sizes. It would definitely help eliminate the UI issues I faced, such as icons and arrows overlapping text as well as cropped images.
