The best available - highly recommended
I have had this app for a couple of years now and use it constantly. The marine forecasts are great and can often be picked up even when cell coverage is marginal. There is a button to press to refresh in the coastal forecast section. The weather map is really nice to have as you can start to learn to predict weather yourself by referring to it regularly. The city forecasts are perfectly adequate and useful but it really is the extras like the weather map and the coastal forecast which make this app great.

Don’t waste your time with this app.
Sure its nice to have the data there on an app but I have had this app since day one and it constantly fails to connect to update data.
I’ve just used it today to see what the weekend weather is going to do and its told me one thing, after finally managing to connect and update, then when I went back to have a second look that data disappeared. NOTHING. No records for Sat/Sun. Gone. Blank. Even through it just told me a few minutes earlier. Then I looked at the Metservice website and the weekend weather is completely different to that what the app said ?????
Also the display is not truly optimized for an iPad. Some screens are but basically its just the iphone app blown up to fit the screen.
So save yourself the $2.59 (or what ever it is now) and just bookmark the NZ Metservice webpage in Safari. Its quicker and more accurate.
Tells me accurate weather from the nz Metservice, works great! The only thing that could be improved is that it should auto refresh whenever you open up the app...
