RE: Pollen Service Unavailable

April 18, 2014 Looks like pollen.com is still being difficult about the use of their pollen service in Allergies.app. Until they allow us to use their pollen service in an official fashion (which we are more than willing to persue) the app is done. Please feel free to email Steve Rosztoczy srosztoczy@us.imshealth.com over at IMS Health (they own and run pollen.com). Steve is unfortunately the guy who has contacted us via a cease and desist order about using the pollen service within Allergies.app. I'd suggest being very nice and cordial in your correspondence with Steve, but stress how much you use this app daily, and how we over at Allergies.app are willing to make a deal to use their pollen service.

April 7, 2014 There has been a tsunami of messages over the weekend about pollen data not showing up in the app. I really appreciate how much all of you are willing to take a second to use the feedback form in app! Allergies has been pulled from the Apple App Store until I can resolve this issue. Thank you for your continuing support.

April 4, 2014 There is ongoing complications with pollen data services. I'm a sufferer of seasonal allergies, so I know how important this is to everyone that have the app. I'm working hard to find a way to get pollen data back into the app.

Frequently Asked Questions

I own an iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S ... what happened to my 3-Day forecast?

Have no fear your three day forecast is here (there)! We changed the action from "tap" to show to "swipe down" to show the forecast.

What does that large number (pollen level) at the top of Allergies.app mean?

Pollen levels are on a scale of 12. These levels take into account how much pollen the allergy sufferer is likely to be exposed to for that given period. For more information on pollen levels visit pollen.com.

I found a software bug with Allergies.app or I have a feature request, is there someone I can contact?

Absolutely! You can send a message using the contact form below.

Dude, those weather icons are sweet. Where did you get them?

Bro, you haven't heard of Climacons? Get the deets here.

I see you use Location Services to determine my location. What if I don't want to use Location Services or my GPS?

Not a problem Allergies.app can work without Location Services. There's a data-set of US city and zip codes available for you to set your location manually.

What in the world is a Chenopod?

Chenopod pollen is a common allergen. Most species bloom in summer months. For more information on chenopods check out the wikipedia page.
