*** 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). These purchases are not transferable between Lite, Pro, and Mac.

Your iTunes account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period. No commitment - you can cancel any time.
TAF’s are update every 6 hours for the next 24 or 30 hours respective period. Or sooner a TAF Speci is issued on changing conditions. The Developer has added a misleading and confusing “time-left” for TAF’s based on the forecast period instead of the update period?This clutters the TAF screen with useless misinformation.

Great app, tons of info. Night mode doesn’t work properly, the listing of airports stays in day mode on my iPad mini.

I am a long time app user, having purchased the Pro version years ago. I also purchased cloud sync and subscribed a few years back. This summer, the D-ATIS update started my issues. I sought support, but received no response for 5 months. When the Captain subscription became available, I decided to give it a shot in case it would help fix the issues with the app not working, but to no avail. Now I can’t access the features I paid for, and cloud sync stopped working. I have requested support multiple times, but my support requests are going unanswered. I wish the developer would have kept the core app working like it used to. All these added bells and whistles have only lead to a worse app. I am about to give up and move on. I’d recommend not purchasing this app until the developer gets it working properly. He’s taken my money, and all I ask is to receive what I paid for.

The extra features are fantastic. This is now an essential app for all pilots. Excellent.

Love(d) this app. Been using it for years. BUT, no so much now. Upgraded to Captain subscription and haven’t got to use any of the products available only in Captain because the app says I don’t have a subscription. Tried to contact vendor to no avail. Do waste you money on Captain subscription.
