    I'd like to use the barometer in my Lumia 950 to display the current barometric pressure. Is there an app for that? Even better, a simple graph of the last 24 hours displayed on a wide Live Tile?

    Jon... I think Barometer is a new sensor for Windows Phone. I remember enjoying it on my Nexus 4. There may not be a lot out there for it yet. I don't believe I've seen Barometer listed as a sensor prior to 950/XL.

    You'll want an App for that. And then it will help you calibrate and display data.

    I would read the reviews. Probably worth paying to get better results in terms of reporting.

    Great question. As an avid weather fan I'm hoping to take advantage of the barometer in the 950. Maybe it's a good time to start a career as an app developer? :)

    I don't know if this works as I have not yet received my 950, but try AIDA64. Look under sensors and you may get the current pressure reading.

    Diagnostic app AIDA64 is now universal for Windows 10 | Windows Central

    AIDA64 is a sweet app, and displays 7 sensor readings, but not the barometer, unfortunately. Thanks for the reply.

    AIDA64 displays barometric pressure in units of hPa (hectopascal) on the Lumia 950. Not sure why is doesn't work on the 1020. Also check out the barometer data app in the store.
