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. In addition to weather data, AeroWeather Pro integrates also airport NOTAMs (provided by US FAA), webcam images around airports (provided by windy.com), FlightService access (US only), and US ATC delay information (provided by US FAA). AeroWeather Pro also offers built-in groups for earthquakes, nearby stations, and today widget, 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 (e.g. home base). Depending on your needs, groups can be shown or hidden in the main list view. User groups can also be synchronized via Cloud Kit*. The app features a built-in airport database, which includes airport data like runways, sunrise/sunset, twilight times, moon times, timezones etc. METAR alert notifications** is another new and helpful feature to stay up-to-date. Define multiple alerts for each station with criteria like: flight rule (US NOAA), wind speed, temperature, pressure, present weather, visibility etc. Notifications will be sent to your device if the criteria is met (e.g., when flight rule becomes IFR). Dedicated METAR/TAF** access is optionally available. METAR/TAF data will come primarily from a certified ANSP (air navigation service provider) 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. 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 and TAF are displayed for each station. In addition, you can put AeroWeather as a complication in your watch face to stay up-to-date. An iMessage app is also 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).

  • Have a subscription but none of the features promised

    I purchased the 1 year subscription for captain. I still don’t have access to the features that the subscription is supposed to come with. I emailed support multiple times with screenshots of my subscription and have never heard back. I tried restarting the app, deleting the app and reinstalling, and restarting the iPad. No luck with any. Will be requesting a refund.
  • Overall a good source for aviation weather

    A good source for aviation weather and airport information. Watch widget works pretty well and while there were some issues with a new update, the developer was quick to fix it. I understand the need for subscriptions for as an incentive for the developer but I still don’t like that so many apps now try to push a subscription.
  • Amended review after developer response

    Turns out I just needed to restart my phone after updating to get the near me airport widget working again. Great app for this that doesn’t require subscription for this feature to work. Appreciate the developers reaching out with this information. I use this app as a pilot to get a quick glance before flying every day at my local airport.
  • Best aviation weather app.

    Everything you need, and nothing you don’t.
  • Taking away features I paid for

    I paid for the pro version and now they switched to a subscription model. Each update they take away more and more features that I paid for in the pro version. Very scummy practice.
  • New Tier Pricing 60% Increase!

    By KAG Pilot
    DONT UPDATE New tier subscription pricing has increased 60% to $7.99/year and if you update App to 3.0 you loose your former Plus subscription imagery in the shuffling. Another money grab. Should wrap this all up in one price not these confusing variable subscriptions. Also charging separately for METAR Plot Apple Watch App which should be part of this, not a separate product... more money grabs. Been a Plus subscription customer for over a decade not sure I’m onboard much longer.
  • Updated widget is garbage!

    Do not update if you like your current widget. New widget is garbage and does not show the same information. Please bring back the old layout and information for the widget.

    I have been using AeroWeather since 2010 and I was very satisfied with the app. However, 6 months ago I started to pay for some options on the app and since then I don’t have an historical view of the METAR like I used too. I contacted the developer many times, but they never fixed it. I am not the only user impacted by this problem since I have seen this problem on my students phone as well. Very disappointed to pay for something not efficient.
  • Great app and great customer service

    The app is simple and easy to use while also having all the info I want to check before going flying. I had a small inconvenience with the app and sent an email to the customer service and they were very quick to respond and help to fix the inconvenience. Would definitely recommend to any pilot.
