    Default App that tells ROOM temperature?

    Is there an app that tells you the room temperature? I'm pretty sure my landlord installed a piece of crap thermostat and considering winter is approaching... I'd love to be able to check if it was accurate.

    I don't think there's any kindof thermometer/temp sensor on the phone (other than probably an internal one to monitor CPU temp). This would require additional hardware that probably doesn't exist.

    If you just want to check your apartment temperature, go to the dollar store and get a thermometer/temp gauge They are cheap. Or if you really want to spring, you can get this one for a whopping $4 from WalMart: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Springfiel...meter/10670990

    Or if you want a little more high-tech, you can get something like this for like $25: http://www.walmart.com/ip/La-Crosse-...meter/14495331. I have something similar that gives inside/outside temp, humidity, pressure, etc. They make really good ones that are much more, but again, if it's just to check the inside temp, I'd just get something cheap.

    Thanks. I'm lazy and was hoping there was just an app for that. But I'll have to buy a thermometer. I'm pretty sure mine's messed up.
