    This altimeter models a real aviation altimeter by using your device's barometer and allowing calibration of altitude based on air pressure at sea level (QNH) and the current air temperature. If a network connection is available, the app can fetch the closest weather station data automatically and auto-calibrate every 10 minutes or as you travel. Manual calibration is easily accomplished by sliding up and down on "Kollsman" window or on the right side of the altimeter.

    Features :

    - 2 hand analog altimeter with smooth animations.
    - Kollsman window for manual calibration.
    - Analog and digital display options.
    - Filtered pressure data for more stable readings and less jumpy altitudes.
    - User preferences and calibrations are saved upon exit.
    - Auto calibration via the closest Metar station (sets sea level pressure and current temperature) when an Internet connection is present
    - Auto calibrates every ten minutes to save battery life
    - Easy manual calibration by sliding up/down or via the settings
    - Imperial and metric support.

    I would appreciate a small lock switch on the mostly empty screen, it's easy to accidentally change the setting otherwise. Have yet to test it at altitude :-)

    Five stars as soon as I can use hPa with feet. At the moment it's either hPa and meters or inHg and feet.. otherwise ok..

    The app was auto fetching the correct altimeter setting for my location. But it has stopped. Tried switching back and forth between auto and manual modes several times to no avail. Not sure what happened.

    This is by far the best altimeter app in the market, the only one that I found that will automatically get local QNH to correct altimeter readings. Would be perfect if it had a way to calibrate the barometer, most phone sensors are consistently off from true pressure, so altitude readings will consistently be offset by 20-50 feet.
