Description

*** AeroWeather: for pilots, aviation enthusiasts, and everyone who is serious about the weather! *** Current and precise weather conditions (METAR) and forecasts (TAF). AeroWeather Pro 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 Pro 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. In addition to weather data, AeroWeather Pro integrates also airport NOTAMs (provided by US FAA), webcam images around airports (provided by webcams.travel), and US ATC delay information (provided by US FAA). The app features a built-in airport database, which includes basic airport data like runways, sunrise/sunset, twilight times, timezones etc. AeroWeather Pro offers built-in groups for earthquakes, ATC delays (US only), nearby stations, today widget, and Apple Watch which can be individually enabled on the top level view. Besides creating user groups it’s also possible to put stations on the same level user groups. Depending on your needs, groups can be shown or hidden in the main list view. User groups can now be synchronized via Cloud Kit*. METAR alert notifications** is 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). 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. AeroWeather Pro comes with an Apple Watch app, which shows either a list of stations as defined in the Apple Watch group or all nearby stations based on the current location. METAR, TAF, and webcam images (if available and enabled in the Watch App settings on the iPhone) are displayed for each station. In addition, you can put AeroWeather as a complication in your watch face to stay up-to-date. 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. * Additional functionality which needs to be unlocked (one-time purchase). These purchases are not transferable between Lite, Pro, and Mac. ** From release 2.5 on additional features which generate recurring operation costs for us will be offered within a subscription. There's only one subscription type which simply varies in time periods (1 month, 2 months, 12 months). The subscription is valid in both AeroWeather Lite and Pro. Cross app subscription support is only available if iCloud (with the same Apple ID) is enabled. Previously purchased unlock features are not affected and will work with or without subscription. The following features are enabled while a subscription is active: - Dedicated METAR/TAF data source - Alert notifications When using AeroWeather Lite also the following features are enabled: - Remove ad banner - Widget Subscription Terms of Use: https://www.lakehorn.com/subscription-terms-of-use/

    The first place I look before heading to the airport. Especially like the runway diagrams with wind components.
  • Watch Issues

    Watch doesn’t update. Won’t use cellular signal with phone to update. Only updates when phone is connected to WiFi. Not very useful with Apple Watch unless you’re connected to WiFi all the time.
  • No idea why this doesn’t have more stars

    This app is great to leverage for the frequent traveler but more for aviation enthusiasts that want or need a bit of help with METARs and what runway for approach and departure. This review is coming from someone trying to acquire their private pilots certificate.
  • After updated as last night there are notam’s data available!!

    For quite a while now the Apple Watch app doesn’t work. It’ll update and show information 3-5 hours old. Using the Refresh button doesn’t do anything. We can’t get this corrected.
  • Love this app!

    The best METAR-TAF app I've found. Easy to use and works great on my Apple Watch. I can see my home airport METAR on my watch face and I use it all day, every day. Great app.
  • Apple watch, glitches

    Says ”not set” when you use the aero-weather complication. Re adding stations to the apple watch list doesn't fix it. Uninstalling doesn't fix it.
  • Great app for aviation

    I upgraded from the lite a few months ago after a having the lite for years and was pleasantly surprised. Nice app and I like the integration with Apple Watch. It’s very helpful. It’s irritating to have so many things to buy. It’s like the MyRadar which is super annoying. I’d rather pay one fee and get it all but I understand catering to different needs. The Apple Watch loading was super slow and I’m glad it was updated. I’d like to see the Apple Watch app be independent of the iPhone so you can check weather without the phone being around. I’d also like to see NOTAMS grouped as a list (all stations) or instead of having to go to each airport. Also, is there a way to add winds aloft near your airport? Thanks for your hard work on this app. ===21 Oct Update=== Apple Watch metar update is so slow it’s unusable. It doesn’t update when you hit refresh and it refreshes about once a day if any. I’ve reset both phone and watch and reinstalled on watch. The previous update was much better even though it was 2-3 hours between updates. Please fix. ==22 Oct Update== Quick response, or maybe I was too quick with the updates. Apple Watch METAR now updates when you hit refresh and updates by itself around 1-2 hours. The display symbol instead of text does not work on the Apple Watch 4. It is always the symbol even though the complication overview shows VFR.
  • Spend your money elsewhere

    Yet another app that has transitioned from in-app purchases to subscriptions. Customer service is pitiful as I’ve waited months to have my concerns addressed. Features are great, future is not.
  • Essential app for flight and trip planning
