Video (Android)

Unfortunately, Android with it’s new security storage rules, the video might be saved in a somewhat obscure location. Some Android phones save the video in the normal, Camera Roll folder, while other phones do not.

iOS saves the movie in the normal location: Pictures > Camera Roll

Here is the Android location if not in the Camera Roll folder:

My Files > Internal Storage > Android > data > com.thecomplokgroup.myeasyphone > files > Movies
(Sorry, hopefully this will change soon and we will publish an update if it does!)

Barometer

Get a quick look at the atmospheric weather conditions based on pressure.

In general, low pressures are associated with inclement weather and higher values are indicative of clear and warmer conditions.  What matters even more is the trend of the pressure over several hours.  Rising values = better weather ahead.

How to read the barometer

Under 1009
Steady or rising:  clearer and cooler weather
Slowly falling:  rain
Quickly falling: storm

1009 – 1023
Steady or rising:  present conditions
Slowly falling:  little change
Quickly falling: storm, rain, or snow

Over 1023
Steady or rising:  fair weather continues
Slowly falling:  fair weather
Quickly falling: cloudy, warmer conditions

Keep in mind and a disclaimer here, that smartphones utilize sensors that are not as precise as a regular barometer.  So if you need absolute accurate values, use a regular barometer.

The units are in Hectopascals (hPA), which is now the universal unit of measure.
1 hPA = 1 mBar
1 hPA = 0.02953 inHg
1 hPA = 0.000986923 ATM
