I just installed it on my tablet.  Seems to work.  Minor nuisance: it's locked into Portrait format, which is fine for smartphones but irritating on my tablet.

You can get the same pollution data off government sites, but AirVisual's forecasts are proprietary -- dunno yet how accurate they are.

Thanks, just installed it. We've had such terrible air here for the last month due to fires, but I know some days are better than others and it's hard to tell just from looking out the window.
