4 Top-rated Allergy Apps

4 Top-rated Allergy Apps - mold testing

Because even mold testing only goes so far

When it comes to the quality of the air you breathe – whether at home with the family, at work or when you’re out having some summer fun – there are some things you can control and, unfortunately, a whole lot you can’t. We can help you with mold remediation in Boca Raton, FL, Houston, TX or any of the other communities we serve. Our professional air quality experts can conduct formaldehyde and VOC testing and mitigate the impact of these airborne toxins on your home or workplace, but not even our science-backed experts can stop trees, ragweed and the most common South Florida grasses from pollinating.

If you or someone near and dear to you suffers from allergies, you know exactly what we’re talking about. Depending on the weather and the time of year, pollen from a variety of different sources could bring on a bout of symptoms.

Today’s technology provides you with tools that can help you navigate the hazards of allergy season. Here are some of the top-rated apps for seasonal allergy sufferers from the Google Play Store that you may be interested in:

2. Allergy Pollen Count
4.0 stars

This app relies on pollen and mold counts based on air samplings conducted by the National Allergy Bureau of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology. It was developed and is maintained by Dr Safadi, a Board Certified Allergist Immunologist in Ohio, so there are certain features and functions that are applicable only to his patients, but Dr. Safadi also offers regularly updated educational videos on allergy-related topics that may be of interest to allergy sufferers no matter where you live.

3. Sensio Air Allergy & Pollen Tracker
3.7 stars

As the name implies, this app allows you to monitor thousands of common allergens, including molds, pollens, pet dander, air pollutants and more. This give you a way to link your allergy and asthma symptoms to the environmental agents that are triggering them.

  • Track your daily allergy symptoms using a relatively simple, common-sense interface
  • Monitor potential allergens
