*Escape pollution and dodge the smog!*
The Flow companion app from Plume Labs collects and analyses the data taken from your Flow’s PM2.5, PM10, NO2 and VOC sensors and gives you beautiful, easy-to-read reports, maps, and graphs.

*Ever feel trapped by air pollution?*
Air quality, AQI index, smog levels: with Flow, you can find the best clean air commute, hunt down fresh air playgrounds, eliminate chemical hotspots in your home, and that’s just the beginning. 

*Did you know?*
Wind and weather, humidity and heat, atmospheric pressure, and many other factors create clean air pockets in urban environments. In fact, air pollution levels change up to 8X from street to street in the city, and even more from room to room indoors! Flow gives you the information you need to stay healthy at home or on the go.

*Stop guessing and start sensing!*
A new study from top researchers at King’s College in London shows that, with good data, you can reduce your exposure to air pollution by as much as 50% by making small changes to your routine.

***Key Features***
Track your personal pollution exposure with live data and daily reports: Flow measures real-time concentrations of PM2.5, PM10, NO2 and VOCs, as well as the AQI air quality level to give you everything you need to understand your exposure and build healthy routines.

Avoid the most polluted places: Flow tracks air pollution variations around you in real time, so you can find clean air. 

Flow fits seamlessly into your daily life: Whether you're cycling, running, out in the park with the kids, or relaxing at home.
***Flow in the press***
“I hope many people living in polluted cities will end up using Flow.” —Techcrunch

    Very flakey data drops give fragmented graphs. I am running BOTH Flow devices (sadly having to do this using separate phones). Something appears to be broken in data processing? I have been generally happy until recently. Just about to reinstall to see if that changes anything.

    I am really starting to enjoy this app more as I get used to it. I have the Flow 2 and it is really awesome to use. I love the spots feature on the maps as well as the GPS tracks. My only thing is I wish that there was a better way to view past data charts and maps etc anytime you want versus just the cards that only last a few days. I also wish there was a way to shut off GPS for short time lengths when I'm gonna be on the same place or a battery saving mode for less frequent pings.

    I've had the flow for 2.5 weeks now and have tested while travelling in America. I am enjoying using it. Some app feedback below. As David says below, the app is a bit buggy. When I click on the latest data from the main window it sometimes does not load the plot over time. If it does load the plot, sometimes it freezes and does not let me drag the slider. This requires me to restart the app. Syncing data from the flow appears a bit hit and miss. If I start a sync from the app and switch apps, it stops syncing, resulting in data gaps on the plot. I've had to keep the app open to ensure it finishes a sync. I would expect it to continue in the background. It does not always load the maps when looking at the plot window. This is the same for 'move', 'spot' and previous day summaries. I don't think this is an internet connection issue. When maps do load, I sometimes get beautiful routes drawn on the map with continuous data (this is what I expected from the Flow marketing material), but sometimes these are very spotty, even when I have been outdoors when GPS should give a good fix. If this is not technically possible due to excessive phone battery drain or otherwise, I would appreciate the option in the app to start and stop an intensive tracking session to capture detailed route data (similar to tracking a run with a fitness tracker). I know you have chosen to use the overall AQI figures to simplify things for the general user but being a bit of an air quality geek, I would appreciate the option to toggle between AQI numbers to raw units for each pollutant, i.e. ug/m3 for particulates, ug/m3 for NO2 and ppm for VOCs (assumed calibrated on isobutylene as per other TVOC type sensors?). This will allow direct comparison to UK pollutant concentration targets. I would also like to be able to view individual plots for each pollutant over time as I am specifically interested in particular pollutants. I would like to be able to zoom into plots, Google map style to more easily see the route taken, as when the map shows a whole city, you can't see the individual streets you took. Taking this one step further, in time it would be great to be able to export data from the app to a csv file or similar, showing lat/long and individual pollutant concentrations. A lot of info there but hopefully this feedback helps!

    The app works well enough for looking at data from the current day, but checking past data is difficult, if not impossible. Fortunately you can export your data and DIY. Can't fully judge the accuracy of the device itself, but VOC and PM values behave as you'd expect them to, e.g. when cooking, or using hand sanitizer... The NO2 values on the other hand seem a bit random.

  5. Hey-avatar



    It doesn't allow you to see the map of your ride afterwards. When cycling I can't see the pollution on my route (obviously) and so the only way to get the data is download as an excel file which is not at all visual. I don't understand how it can map your wall or ride as it collects the data and can store your routes to compare pollution levels.

    Nice app, but it would be nice to have a dark mode (just like in the Plume Air app)

  7. David Brennan-avatar

    David Brennan


    The app is certainly working, in that it links with the Flow device and measures pollutants. The results seem to make sense as well, with increase in particulates when cooking, and increases in NO2 when cycling through traffic. I'm only giving three stars just now though as the software is buggy. Crashes when trying to view up to date graphs for example. I'd also like more control over viewing the data and being able to map each individual pollutant separately. But both the app and device are brand new, so hoping for ongoing improvements.

  8. James Singleton-avatar

    James Singleton


    Hardware (V2) seems good but the app needs work. Regularly fails to log moves or full moves when out and so shows pollution as being at home. Summary shows no GPS data even though Bluetooth and GPS indicators are lit up blue and I'm shown correctly on the map tab. App takes a long time to load and just shows the splash screen, sometimes for minutes. I suspect it is doing a network request at start-up, which is of course very bad practice. Graphs are hard to scrub accurately on a small screen.

  9. Steve Argyll-avatar

    Steve Argyll


    Needs improvement. None of the text boxes within the app seem to work. I can tap to select them and see the cursor, but it refuses to summon my keyboard, so I can't actually type anything. Also, I wish the data was a bit closer to real time, rather than needing to refresh or skip between menus before it updates to the current reading. The device itself I also can't recommend. The battery needs recharging multiple times per day, and the pollution is measured high regardless of the situation.

    1.06.20: Flow2 syncing via bluetooth does not work even within a 2 meter distance. Maybe Android 10 is responsible for it, because with Android 9 the syncing worked very smooth. PlumeLabs support also stopped replying properly a few months ago. After months of testing Flow1 and Flow2 with other consumer AQM's I come to the conclusion, that the device is more a gadget, than an instrument for recognising pollution reliably. The potential is still there, but I don't know, why PlumeLabs is not moving forward and improving the app, syncing features as well as making it easier for users to read the measured data. Instead, one has to "believe" in an air quality index given by the company. Models are subjective not objective, therefore cant be trusted.

  11. Adrian Roberts-avatar

    Adrian Roberts


    Great to see this app. It looks good. It be great to be able to download the data and also to see graphs for days before the current. Also to graph by pollutant type. For example, I've noticed the much higher VOCs at home than elsewhere, but have no idea if the levels are problematic.

  12. Ramesh Asapu-avatar

    The flow device is quite a remarkable innovative product, but it is doomed by a rather not so smart app. The following points could improve the app functionality compared to similar smart tech devices in the market: 1. The GPS and blluetooth sync is quite slow when on move or on a bike and sometimes the app fails to recognize that the device was in a "move" state even when connected with app running live. 2. No historical data available to review at a later stage. once the clock is past 12:01 AM all the data is lost and if one forgets to sync the data during a busy work day, we don't know what was the air quality. 3. A suggestion is to embed a mapping of geo-location with historical data which would make it a really smart app. This is only available in the form of summary at the end of day. This summary is also not stable with some bugs as I only see the summarized day report only few days in a week. 4. Comparatively, the plume air report app is quite good with the option of looking at both AQI and concentration values which the this app lacks. The developers should fix/implement some of the above issues so that the app match-up to a truly amazing device.

    It is okay. Requires to have your Flow device constantly docked, as the battery is weaker than Tesco Tea and it is always in conflict with other Bluetooth devices. It must be an older version of Bluetooth, as 11 months has passed with missing data and Lockdown measurements are an indicated constant green, with nothing to compare with!

  14. Tim Kirby-avatar

    Tim Kirby


    Can't really comment on the app because either the app or the device has a fault and Bluetooth won't connect for more than a few seconds every few days. Support though I can rate, it's non existent. No response at all since the autoresponse raising the ticket - 5 days ago now! It's still within the 30 day return period too! Have they gone bust? Do no buy!

    Uses location constantly even when app is closed. Battery drain. What a hassle. Doesn't connect with Flow unless location is on. What a inconsiderate design.

    I finally managed to connect the Flow to my xiaomi phone. I could synchronize the device a few times and since then the sync doesn't work anymore. From the couple of successful data synchronization that I got, the data for NO2 looked completely random. The concept is very interesting, but not yet ready for prime time.

  17. P Mydlarz-avatar

    P Mydlarz


    It's still buggy and the latest version 1.0.03 crashes when you drill down to the data. New users should persevere for 2 days whilst the data populates and becomes meaningful. But it's still indispensable. I am puzzled though by NO2 being so variable- perhaps this needs to be smoothed over a couple of minutes?

  18. Joseph Carter-avatar

    Joseph Carter


    App works well once battery optimisation is set to manual otherwise it stops syncing. Graphs are nice and an app history is decent enough. Being able to set alerts on levels would be nice. Minor niggle is that you can't get rid of the notification bar which only ever tells you it's syncing or not and so is pretty useless.

  19. Matthew Walsh-avatar

    Matthew Walsh


    Without exporting the data there is no way to change the scale so you can see more detail or pull back and see long term trends. It would be good to put symptoms in so you could use some ai to correlate symptoms with pollution profiles and time of day even weather. The graph is displayed in elapsed hours since the app decided you wanted to be on a journey or in a spot making it difficult to see what time things happened. The most basic tasks you would want to perform you cant.

    Following on from earlier review, as of recent app and/or firmware updates gps/maps no longer works properly (have checked gps functionality simultaneously whilst running another app and gps trace on that was perfect. Have also tried without anyother apps runnjng but no trace with flow...) Contacted support, and as many other reviewers have commented on, support is terrible. Can't recommend till they sort this important feature out.

  21. Charlie-avatar



    Doesnt half work. It drops the xonnection to the monitor and will not reestablish it. It keeps indicating that there is an update to be downloaded but when you try to get it is says something went wronclg, contact customer support. Customer support is a black hole. And now they want me to buy new hardware.

    Really glad I got the Flow its a revelation as to how bad things are around where I live. I am a little confused by some of the readings I'm getting though with some "Very high" readings even when out walking in the countryside/forest away from heavy pollution sources!? Any Ideas? I'd really like to be able to download historical data so I can use it for analysis. What I'd like to see in the app is on-screen buttons to scroll through the graph data so I can record the data manually rather than have to try to maintain my finger on a spot on the graph while I try and write the data down using a pencil held in my mouth! ;-)

  23. Michal Michal-avatar

    In general, the app has a work-in-progress feeling about it. Sometimes an empty screen appears when you click something. There's also a few minutes' lag before movements show up on the app.

    Great product, very useful. The only two things I would like to change are longer battery life and stop the humming from the Flow. I can't charge it next to my bed because the sound is annoying me. Apart from that a really innovative product.

    My Flow is amazing, a survival tool in a world with toxic winds, secretive pollutors, where millions of lives are disregarded by powerful people. Save lives carry a flow pollution sensor. Looks great, gives minute by minute readings of air pollutants, daily average AQI, maps of the pollution on your travels, in your home. I have been shocked to my core by the level of toxic air incidents occuring without any government warning.
