Description

*** AeroWeather: for pilots, aviation enthusiasts, and everyone who is serious about the weather! *** Current and precise weather conditions (METAR) and forecasts (TAF). 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 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** is an 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). Dedicated METAR/TAF** access is optionally available. METAR/TAF data comes primarily from certified ANSP (air navigation service provider) MeteoSwiss and is provided reliably and fast from our dedicated, redundant servers (indicated by blue checkmark underneath METAR/TAF). 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. There's also an iMessage app included which lets you easily send METAR/TAF of any airport to other users. Please consult our web-site for a full description of all features. In order to keep AeroWeather Lite free we added a small ad banner at the bottom of the screen.

  • Used to be Good

    Like others have already mentioned, this used to be my go to app for METARS. Had the Pro version without any subscriptions and now with this latest update, the Pro app was taken away with an expectation to re-purchase a subscription to enable features like “dark mode.” The developer says they need to cover recurring costs. Dark mode integration and bug fixes are considered “recurring costs” now? I think not. The features section conflicts between the App Store and what’s listed in app, so you can’t tell with 100% certainty what you’ll get if you shell out the cash. It seems like the focus these days is on subscription gain versus a coherent package and solid product. The app has always been buggy with multiple crashes, antiqued data at times, and features that wouldn’t work. As a certificated private pilot, I don’t trust this app for any serious flight planning; only for the anecdotal “quick look” at data. The developer should seriously reconsider how they have this app structured and realign their priorities. Disappointed to see where this app has gone.
  • Good app. But they locked a paid feature back for more money

    I don’t know how is this possible. Purchased Widget functionality before and it gets me meteogram table on my widget. But now they just decided to lock it back so I have to pay more money to get what I paid to unlock?

    I paid full price for the pro version of this and it was very useful. I am however frustrated that since you changed to a subscription based app that you want me to now pay full price once again for this app even though I have already paid 3.99. Very disappointed.

    Love the App! I set up alerts so most of the time I know the weather is changing before seeing it on a desktop or if I’m busy doing other things. Also great when your in the field to know if your next destination or surrounding area is seeing big changes. Easy to use, easy to read... Great App!
  • Not working

    It updated, and no longer allows to save stations ... after all the stations I had saved vanished. If I can't view saved stations, it's not much use to me.
  • No option to add airports

    Amazing how developers can call revisions that reduce the ratings by multiple stars an improvement. Every time I update this App I regret making the update.
