    I suffer from pretty bad asthma of all three types, so I was curious if there was a program to help with asthma info and/or an allergy program that shows the allergen levels in your area. I may be coming out of left field, but I thought this would be nice to have and I searched but did not really find anything. So, any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I get emails every morning when levels are high from pollen.com
    You input your location and they send updates to your email addy...works well for me.

    not really, just gives your pollen counts on a scale from 1 to 12 and what pollens are out.

    A lot of the local newspaper and TV station web sites will have weather updates, as well as Allergy/Pollen updates for the local types of pollen .

    I know that ins the Seattle area, the local TV news sites, have pollen info on their weather page, and a couple of them also have mobile and email alerts for when the pollen counts are really high and a problem for folks with asthma and allergies.

    If you are getting local alerts, one less thing to have installed on your phone.
