A real thermometer for iPhone. No Internet, no GPS needed. RealTemp measures the temperature of the air near the microphone of your phone. It does this by sending out a waveform through the speaker.

iPhone 4 and 3GS needs a 30 sec warmup.
Does not work on iPod Touch.
Only tested on iPhone 4,3G and 3GS.
May not work with protective case.
Works best in silent surroundings.
On some devices the microphone or speaker moves very easily which means that RealTemp needs to be calibrated before every use.
Buy this version to support further development. Later versions may cost more.

Calibration will be necessary as every phone is different. This is easily done by measuring a known temperature (ignore the incorrect temperature that will be displayed while doing this). If you drop your phone or in some other way give it a good shake you will probably need to make a new calibration.

The 3GS and 4 model will require about 30 seconds to “warm up” before an accurate measurement can be done.

Tested from -15 to 30 degrees celsius (0-90 degrees F)
Tested on 3G, 3GS and 4 models only. Earlier models may not work.
Does not work on iPod.
Requires OS 3.0 or later.

The “MyObservatory” is one of the most popular weather app providing location-specific weather service in Hong Kong. If permission is granted to determine user’s location, temperature, relative humidity, rainfall, wind direction and speed, as well as weather photograph collected from nearby weather stations will be displayed.

Note to users:
1. The notificaiton service of weather warnings, Special Weather Tips, and Location-based Rain Forecast is provided through the Apple Push Notification service (APNs). The Hong Kong Observatory cannot guarantee the reception of the above notifications by users. Users should not rely on the mobile app as the only means for reception of important weather information. Depending on factors such as network usage and quality of user’s mobile phone connection, it may take 5 to 20 minuntes or even longer for the app to receive the notification after it is issued by the Hong Kong Observatory.

2. Use of Location-based Rain Forecast notification will increase the battery usage and data download slightly. Users who wish to save battery usage of the app may enable the notification function in rainy days and before outdoor activities, and disable the function in sunny days and after finishing the outdoor activities. Meanwhile, selecting options of less frequent update and lower postion accuracy in the advanced settings of the notification function may also save battery usage.

3. Although the “MyObservatory” is a free app, user will be charged by their mobile network service provider on the use of data service. These charges can become very expensive on roaming. Please ensure that the option of “Data Roaming” have been disabled in the settings of your mobile devices.

4. In the “My Location Settings”, users can opt for using the automatic location service provided by the smartphone, or designating “My Location” on the map themselves. This location will be displayed on the main page and in “My Weather Report”. The meteorological data displayed on the same page is provided by meteorological stations nearby, and is not necessarily from a station in the same region. In case meteorological data is not available from nearby stations, data from other meteorological stations at headquarter of the Observatory, King’s Park, and Star Ferry will be used instead. Meanwhile, “Hong Kong Observatory” will be used as “My Location”.

5. The location displayed in the function of “My Weather Report” is provided by third party provider. The Hong Kong Observatory does not guarantee the accuracy of the information.

6. Owing to the difference in topography and altitude between the weather station and user’s location, and also the error in the estimated postiion given by the mobile device, users should note that weather information displayed on the app may be different from actual conditions in using the “MyObservatory”.

7. The maximum and minimum temperatures displayed on the main page and the “My Weather Report” are today’s forecast temperature specific to “My Location”.

8. The clock on the main page of the app is displayed with HKT synchronizing automatically to the Observatory’s Internet Time Server, and may not be the same as the time displayed on the smartphone.

The program was developed with the OS 5.1 and tested with iPhone and iPad.

Measuring instrument for temperature and humidity

Note a measuring instrument is necessary for the use of this program. The instrument should measure the temperature and the humidity in and outside of the building. Ideal is a device connected via a wireless outdoor sensor, which is itself protected from the rain in the shadow.

Temperature range

The program calculates the absolute humidity from the relative humidity within the temperature range from 14 to 95 °F (-10 to 35 °C). That should cover the needs of the most users. When entering a value outside of thid rsnge it is displayed.
The program calculates approximately the expected effect of dehumidification or humidification. This program always stores the last parameters with date and time. So you can switch to other applications without problems. The program calculates in degrees celsius (german) and in degrees fahrenheit (english).

Dew point

Since version 2.0 this program calculates the dew point for inside and outside. At this temperature condensation occurs. The values are interpolated and may therefore differ about ± 0.2°F. The accuracy of the equipment does not allow a calculation with two decimal places. It is recommended to round up to integer temperature. Then you’ll be on the safe side. It is recommended to perform painting works at least three (°C) or six (°F) degrees above the dew point.

Main application: historic building, churches etc.

The program has been used successfully during three years in summer and winter. The approach recommended here for clever ventilating has been very successfully in churches with thick walls and historic buildings. The room temperature in such buldings is relatively stable.The calculated theoretical dehumidification can be achieved to some degree.
Wooded houses have, however, a different pattern. They adapt to the ambient temperature much faster. Here it is important to make observations and experiences with the help of this program. Each bulding has its own characteristics and can store moisture and release it again depending on the furniture, the floors and the ceilings. Because of that, after ventilating the humidity may increase again.

Some useful notes

In case of large temperature difference in winter you should only ventilate briefly for energy-saving reasons. During the winter the humidity inside is rather low, it is rather to high in the summer. It should be in the range of 50 to maximum 70% relative humidity. It is not always possible to keep the humidity in the desired range. In well-heated rooms in winter the relative humidity is often lower than 50%. So you should work with a humidifier. Conversely, it is necessary for longer periods of rain in the summer to use a dehumidifier, not to get over 70% relative humidity. If you ventilate clever, you often reach in large buildings with 30 minutes intensive ventilating a greater effect than by hours of operation with a dehumidifier!
With and above 70% humidity you can get moldy. Most harmful are those situations in which warm air causes condensation on cold walls. This is the case when the temperature of the wall is at or below the dew point temperature. The program informs you about some hazards.
