This is a very simple but elegant barometer by Coding Dutchmen. It is universal and simply uses GPS to determine your barometric pressure. There are no menus or settings. You can double tap the dial to reset.

I'm kinda puzzled at the interest here. If it is only using your location wouldn't that mean the app is merely contacting a weather service for the barometric pressure? Isn't that likewise available, and much more, from any number of free weather apps?

I think you are probably correct, but I like the analog dials and beautiful interface which you can see immediately. Unlike other apps, this is just for barometric pressure which shows a change in weather approaching. It isn't cluttered with a bunch of other data. For me the selling point is the beautiful UI with analog dials.

For those who might be unfamiliar with aneroid barometers the golden indicator dial in this app is a kind of bookmark. You move that over the barometer indicator to see how much of a change takes place in the following day or days.
