The highlight of the app provides you a forecast for your flight by checking for indicators of turbulence. It looks at aviation weather that pilots look at to give you a realistic prognostic of what to possibly expect. One can see turbulence embedded in thunderstorms as pilots see it. Designed by an airline pilot, it uses a combination of aviation knowledge and NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming techniques to help you reduce your fear of turbulence. Turbcast is easy to use. Simply enter your departure and arrival airport, time zone and let the app do the rest.

None of the airports I fly to are ever listed. Tried about 10 that don’t work. Waste of money
Missing airports but great idea
It seems to be a little temperamental about the airports it likes as BHM (Birmingham UK) works but MAN (Manchester UK) doesn't, even though it's listed on the developer's website under the airport codes, and is one of the busiest UK airports. I guess it won't make much difference to the predictions but still, it's annoying. It would be nice to get a little more info about the predictions, but I get that they won't want to be too specific. Also it would be nice to be able to save locations and flight times rather than having to type them in each time. Even if you only check a few times in the run up to a flight, it's a pain to remember and re-type the details. I can't comment on its accuracy yet, but I suspect it will be as accurate as any app could be.
I've always had a fear of flying. But because this app I've managed to overcome it to some extent. I can always check live forecast for my flight and so on. It is very pocket book friendly app that everybody should try once !!! Highly recommended.
