*** AeroWeather: for pilots, aviation enthusiasts, and everyone who is serious about the weather! AeroWeather Lite provides quick and intuitive access to METAR and TAF for airports worldwide. Data can be shown in its original (raw) format or as fully decoded and easy understandable texts. AeroWeather Lite is helpful for weather preflight-briefings, but also to just get very precise weather. All weather data is cached for offline access. There are many settings for units and format of METAR/TAF available. The app features a built-in airport database, which includes basic airport data like sunrise/sunset, twilight times, timezones etc. AeroWeather Lite now offers built-in groups for nearby stations, today widget*, and earthquakes. Depending on your needs, groups can be shown or hidden in the main list view. METAR alert notifications* are another new and helpful feature to stay up-to-date. Define multiple alerts for each station with the following criteria: flight rule (US NOAA), wind speed, temperature, pressure, present weather, visibility, and ceiling (BKN and OVC). Notifications will be sent to your device if the criteria is met (e.g., when wind is greater/equal 10 kts, flight rule becomes IFR). The AeroPix feature offers users the possibility to take quickly picture(s) of the weather at their current location. The pictures will be available to all other pilots (on the map or within an airport detail view) helping them to get a better idea about local conditions. AeroPix should be especially helpful when there's no or insufficient webcam coverage. Please consult our web-site for a full description of all features.

  • Ads take too much space

    All WX stations showing as expired with no way to reset app or get help with it. Phone and WiFi are both fine.
  • Black text needed

    By Capt M98
    I use this app a lot but ever since a few updates ago the METAR text on the kian airports list page is grey and hard to read in daylight. Change it back to black.

    Everything worked well and then another release came up. Naturally another developer that doesn’t test before they release and now the data is extremely slow to load. I can go check the METAR at A FAA government website by the time the data populates that’s how slow it is.
  • Update made it useless

    When I did the latest update it blanked my list and will not let me add airports. It went from being an app I loved to one that does not work.
  • Have to pay for METARs now??

  • The best

    I’ve been using this app for several years. Best smartphone app on the market for checking METARs. Helps with trending information too. Great user experience!
  • It's ok..

    By George_1010
    It works good as long as you have a wifi connection. That is not always available so that's why I give 3 stars. Please fix this so I can update weather with LTE.
  • It’s gotten bad.

    By TheGoodKid1215
    A simple, useful weather app has now turned into a bloated nuisance with the pointless map feature. Nobody cares about the picture you took at the airport. It provides no useful information. The developer should get rid of this function and return the app to its fast former self.

    Below you'll find my 'review' of several years ago. I loved this app back then and activated it more than once each day. Alas, someone a few months ago couldn't leave 'perfection' alone, and IMPROVED the format. Now it's just a shadow of its former simplicity; doesn't load as quickly and has clutter that few will like. I would pay money to have the old app back. If you who control this app read this please consider offering the old format for a reasonable price. I'll be happy to join up. BELOW IS WHAT I WROTE ABOUT THE OLD APP, BEFORE CURRENT REVISIONS: This app shows you the weather as recorded at any airport you designate, and gives that to you in "real time", updating that weather every hour. Since aviation requires current, accurate weather, you receive this benefit when you use this app. I've been using this for about a year now and it always works and is simple to use. It allows you to make a list of as many locations as you would like, and displays current weather at each of those when you open the app. You can choose a location by the name of the airport or by the name of a town. My own list, arranged in the order I desire, now contains 22 locations scattered across the USA and the Bahama Islands. I see this list, with current weather for each location, each time I open this app. Info includes current temperature, humidity, wind direction and speed, amount of cloud cover and forecast weather for the next 24 hours; along with with information about the airport where this data was collected. Very helpful for anyone who is traveling or who participates in outdoor activities which are affected A
