Helping Tasmanians with asthma, hay fever or other lung conditions to better manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
The AirRater app allows you to track symptoms such as sneezing, itchy eyes or shortness of breath. These symptoms are often a result of being exposed to something in the air, like smoke or pollen. Over time, this will build up a picture of when and where you get these symptoms.
Anywhere you go in Tasmania, the AirRater app can give you up-to-date information about air quality, including readings for smoke, pollen and temperature. If you want to see these values for other locations in Tasmania, you just need to click that point on the map.
Over time, AirRater will help you work out if you are sensitive to smoke, pollen or temperature and if certain conditions can trigger your symptoms. Once AirRater has worked out your triggers, it will send you a notification when those conditions are present in your location.
