Awair. Air quality monitor. Measure Humidity, Temperature, CO2, VOC (Hydrogen gas, Hydrogen Sulfide, Ammonia, Ethanol, Toluene, Formaldehyde), Dust (PM2.5 PM10). That is somehow more than netatmo can do.


Device shows air quality metrics as a dot bars. Where one dot is good and five dot are bad. It is also general “Awair score” on the screen both by number (100 is best, zero is worst) and by color of the LED (green is good, red is bad).

Awair also can work as clock (but only in 12h mode).

In addition to local indication device is also send data to a cloud using Wi-Fi (802.11n 2.4GHz), that allow to see the data using iPhone or Android on a remote locations.

iOS navigation apps for Kyiv

Quick overview of GPS navigators with traffic information in Kyiv, Ukraine. November 2016. What is available:

  • iGo is based on here maps that is 1-2 years old. Traffic is more or less adequate, but loading of traffic is slow, and there are no traffic events. UI is old-school and slow, but nice. At least during driving. It is not free.


  • here good free up-to-date map with traffic, but without traffic events and without events reporting.


  • Google have 3D building but unable to show it during navigation. Good  map of traffic, but without events. No traffic events reporting.


  • Yandex  good traffic and a lot of user reported accidents, road works, etc. Without navigation in offline mode.


  • Waze have poor traffic map contain only reported data. Map is average quality, but may be edited by on site

Бесплатные навигаторы с пробками для Киева

Бесплатные навигаторы с пробками в Киеве для iPhone

  1. Yandex Maps (Yandex Navigator)
  2. Google Maps
  3. here

Яндекс однозначно лучший навигатор для iOS в Киеве

  • Лучшая детализация данных о заторах
  • Иконки дорожных событий (аварий, ремонтов)
  • Возможность добавлять события
  • Удобный интерфейс, Избранное.
  • 3D здания, отображение заторов и другая “избыточность на карте” в режиме навигации не мешает благодаря правильному подбору цветов.


Google значительно отстаёт по уровню детализации, возможно сознательно не выводя в окно навигатора ничего лишнего.

  • Нет ни 3D ни даже контуров зданий
  • Очень мало дорожных событий (и те взяты из waze)
  • Карта трафика и маршруты с учётом пробок в целом адекватны
  • Выход из режима навигации одним нажатием и автоматически
  • Постоянный просчёт и визуализация альтернативных маршрутов
  • Транспорт, пешие маршруты, Taxi (Uber)


HERE WeGo в целом достаточно качественная альтернатива

  • есть несколько текстурированных 3D объектов
  • контуры и псевдо 3D дома
  • нормальная карта заторов
  • пешие и вело маршруты



iPhone 7

iPhone 7

Now it is black again. Gold Black is best. Same Size as iPhone 6/6S. With improved antena section color design. Better camera that is shifted a bit to the phone edge.


New Home button. That is not actually button any more. Finger clicks work fine in general. Click in gloves or using nails do not work anymore. Fingerprint recognition speed and quality same at it was on iPhone 6S.


No more analog audio connector. Hmm. OK.

Stereo, waterresistant, faster, brighter.

Meizu M3s

Meizu M3s is cheap and (relatively) low performance Android smartphone with expensive smartphones looks and features (like TouchID).


The phone looks more or less like iPhone 6(s).
Price is about 130$ for 16GB/2GB version in Ukraine.


iPhone 6(s) like design is in metal body (only central part, top and bottom are platic), one “home”button with fingerprint reader in it.


Similar to iPhone screws, speeker holes, usb port location. Sound quality is very average.


Not only M3s body is looks like iPhone but also FlymeOS trying to copy iOS way of lock screen, notifications, etc.
