Every once in a while, a Microsoft Research app sneaks past our radar. Today that app is ‘Urban Air’ and it’s quite neat, but only if you’re in China.
China, needless to say, has a bit of a pollution problem that can have some deleterious effects on people’s health. Being able to see those alerts and conditions could be vital on how to plan your day. Luckily, you can now download this nifty little app to get a glance at the pollution level at that moment in various locations e.g. home and work. The app came out last month, but it recently had an update.
